Seems like Marvel isn’t waiting until the Super Bowl to release another trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
As previously promised, the Canadian arm of the studio dished out a sneak peek at the event movie tonight but much to our surprise, it looks like we all got trolled – hard. You see, while we were promised new footage, what we have here is basically just the first teaser recut and shortened, with nothing we haven’t seen before. At least, as far as we can tell.
Given that the studio still has Black Panther on its slate – which is on pace for a record breaking opening, might we add – it’s understandable that they don’t have time to be cutting together new trailers for Infinity War just yet. But to promise us a new preview and then deliver this….well, let’s just say Marvel fans aren’t very happy right now. And understandably so. Especially those who had to sit through The Launch to catch it.
Anyways, we imagine that once Ryan Coogler’s spinoff is out of the way, the marketing blitz for the pic will truly begin and it’ll be all hands on deck for Joe and Anthony Russo’s superhero extravaganza, which is apparently going to be “one of the biggest things in film history.”
Or at least, that’s according to Chris Hemsworth. The actor’s about to reprise his role as Marvel’s God of Thunder for the second year on the trot, and recently had this to say:
This is one of the biggest things in film history and to be a part of it was just incredible. I think what these characters are about to face — with Thanos — there’s been nothing quite like it. There are 76 cast members or something like that. I think what people are going to be excited about is what I was excited about and that’s Thor meeting the Guardians and Iron Man meeting Doctor Strange.”
So, will Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ next outing truly be the event movie to end all event movies? Will it shatter box office records on its way to a $2 billion gross? And just how will Iron Man and co. take down the Mad Titan? All will be revealed once Avengers: Infinity War touches down in theaters on May 4th.
