Unless you were one of the fortunate few in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con – or you happened to catch a bootleg recording of said clip before it was yanked offline four months ago – the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been as elusive as they come.
In fact, such is the pent-up demand for Marvel’s 2018 preview that Joe and Anthony Russo recently teased fans via social media on the belief that “some things can’t be rushed: good music and good wine.” And the first-look teaser for Infinity War, it seems.
But as we approach the year’s end, and Thor: Ragnarok maintains its grip on the global box office – until the advent of Justice League, mind you – it’s surely only a matter of weeks before Marvel officially lifts the lid on Avengers: Infinity War. Indeed, last we reported the studio’s head honcho Kevin Feige hinted that it would drop in and around the same timeframe as Ragnarok, so if anything, this is a trailer that’s arguably overdue.
Adding fuel to the fire today is Reddit user ‘TheAscendedAncient’ (via CBM), who has unearthed a series of leaked screenshots that are presumably pulled from that fabled teaser. Have a gander below:
Featuring Scarlet Witch, Captain America (Nomad?), Drax, Vision and a souped-up Falcon, above you’ll see three of our heroes locking horns with an alien baddie, one which presumably belongs to the Black Order. Headed up by Thanos, it’s a superteam formed by the universe’s biggest foes, and while it’s said to feature the likes of Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw and Black Dwarf, it looks as though Cap and the gang are about to clash with Proxima Midnight. It’s a little blurry, though, so take that one with a pinch of salt.
Avengers: Infinity War will see a release on May 4th, 2018, and when it does, it’ll seemingly herald lots of big “evolutions” for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Ditto for the untitled Avengers 4, which will bring the curtain down on the Thanos saga – and Marvel’s Phase Three – in 2019.
