With only a few weeks left now before Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters, Marvel’s marketing machine is firing on all cylinders. From posters to photos and even a new clip, fans have been absolutely spoiled over the past little while. And the best part? The studio shows no sign of letting up. That’s right, you can readily expect the barrage of content to continue right up until release.
Don’t believe us? Just check out the brand new trailer up above. Unlike recent promos, this one actually contains a ton of never before seen footage. Though only a minute in length, there’s lots to get excited over, with Marvel giving us new looks at all our favorite characters. Among many other things, we get a glimpse of Cap and Bucky’s long awaited reunion, as well as a substantial amount of stuff from the big Wakanda battle.
Speaking of which, there’s also some welcome humor sprinkled in at the end. With Infinity War set to be a pretty serious and grim affair – you know, with Thanos trying to bring balance back to the universe and all – it’s nice to see that there will still be a few laughs to be had. This is a Marvel movie, after all.
If nothing else, this latest promo also proves that never before have we seen a superhero film with the scale and mind-numbing scope of Infinity War, which looks set to redraw the Marvel Cinematic Universe we know and love, opening up the field for a Phase 4 that is decidedly different from everything that has come before. Think cosmic adventures orchestrated by James Gunn and Co. and you’ll begin to get a sense of where the MCU is headed post-Avengers 4.
Staying in the here and now, though, and on April 27th, Avengers: Infinity War will redefine the parameters of the superhero genre, before the so-far untitled sequel tends to unfinished business in 2019 – without or without Michelle Pfieffer’s Wasp.
