The wait between now and the release of Avengers: Infinity War is going to be simply excruciating – especially when Marvel Studios keeps releasing cool promotional advertisements like the one above.
It seems that Disneyland Paris is set to celebrate The Summer of Superheroes, with the park playing host to everyone’s favorite MCU characters. As you can see, the video we have here shows Thor, Captain America and Iron Man striding through the place in front of dazzled tourists. Even Disney would balk at hiring Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. for a short advertisement though, so we cunningly only see the back of Cap and Thor’s head. But, we do get a great look at the new armor that Tony Stark will be donning in the film.
Truthfully, it’s not a huge departure from what we’ve seen in previous movies, but the gradual evolution of Stark’s Iron Man tech has been seen across every one of his appearances thus far and it’s clear that Infinity War is going to be no exception. The new suit keeps the same basic red and gold color scheme, but accents it with a touch more glow-y blueness than before.
Now, the glow-y blue bits on Iron Man are the arc reactors that power him, so perhaps more blue might indicate a more powerful suit? After all, Thanos is the most dangerous threat Stark has ever faced, so it’s entirely possible he decides he needs to power-up to stay in the game.
All things considered, this is a neat new promo and it’s always interesting to see how Disney integrates the Marvel properties into their park attractions. The only obvious flaw is that godawful Robert Downey Jr. impersonator doing the voiceover. Honestly, if this guy is the best you can rustle up, then maybe it’d have been better not to bother at all. Just a thought.
Avengers: Infinity War is set to be released on May 4th.
