In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally make his mark on the MCU – after six years of appearing in brief cameos or post-credits scenes – as he brings together all six Infinity Stones to gain supreme power over the universe. The worry Marvel fans everywhere have, though, is will the villain manage to measure up to all the hype?
From what we’ve heard so far, a lot of effort has been made to ensure that the Mad Titan comes across as the most intimidating antagonist the Avengers have ever faced, and that’s something which is quite evident in today’s electrifying new TV spot. Kicking off with that chilling clip of Josh Brolin’s big bad telling one of the Avengers that “I could snap my fingers, and you’d all cease to exist,” it paints a pretty worrying picture of what lies ahead for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
For the most part, the footage here is all stuff we’ve seen – Ebony Maw torturing Strange, Thanos wreaking havoc on Wakanda, the Sorcerer Supreme telling Tony how grim the future looks – but there does seem to be at least one new shot included, which shows us Thor screaming out “No!” Given how brief it is, it’s impossible to say what the context of the scene may be, but the God of Thunder certainly looks to be in trouble.
With less than a week to go now until release, it really seems as if the Marvel marketing machine is firing on all cylinders. We’re not exaggerating when we say that every day brings with it a new promo of some sort for Avengers: Infinity War and while this one is sure to have fans excited, some folks are beginning to complain that it’s too much.
Admittedly, we have no problem with all the promotion Marvel’s doing for the pic, but we do hope that the studio’s still got a few surprises up their sleeve for us once the lights go down in theaters on April 27th. Because after 10 years and 18 movies’ worth of exposition and city-leveling spectacle, why ruin all the fun?
