UPDATE: This video has been removed at the request of the studio.
Last night during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel released the very first trailer for Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, the same one which they showed off at D23 a few weeks back. Though they didn’t make it available online, and probably won’t for some time, the footage has now leaked – as expected. It’s blurry and far from the best quality, but for fans who are eager for a first look at the film, it’s certainly worth watching.
It matches up with what we’ve heard from those who’ve seen it at either D23 or Comic-Con, so there’s no doubting if it’s real or not. Make no mistake about it, this is definitely the trailer that Marvel’s been showing off, and it’s just as incredible as everyone’s been saying. Give it a watch up above and see if you don’t agree with us.
For many, the highlight will be seeing some of these beloved characters interacting and standing on screen together for the first time, with the opening scene between Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy being a particular highlight. It’s a meeting that’s sure to deliver a lot of laughs and it’s moments like these that we can’t wait to see play out in full.
The trailer doesn’t give us too many details on the plot, which is understandable, but it teases us with some explosive action, an epic scope, a new look for Captain America, Thanos finally stepping out of the shadows and much, much more. If the final product can deliver on even half of what we see here, well, then Marvel fans around the world are in for one hell of a good time next May.
In related news, we recently caught wind of the “great chemistry” between Tom Holland and Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange – even if the latter completely overlooked the young up-and-comer at first glance – along with the moment in which Drax the Destroyer crosses paths with Iron Man. Dave Bautista’s character is known for being stupidly literal, so we can only imagine the hilarity that will ensue once his Drax is introduced to the unapologetically sarcastic Tony Stark.
Avengers: Infinity War will be with us on May 4th, 2018, and despite reports to the contrary, the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 won’t herald the much-touted MCU reboot as initially thought.
