Four months ago at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel showed fans — for the first time — some footage from the highly anticipated ‘Avengers’ film. However, back then the footage was not released online, which drove people nuts (myself included), but now, we have the first official trailer.
Avengers: Infinity War will end the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first major story arc, when the power-hungry titan Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), who first appeared in the end credits of 2012’s The Avengers, attempts to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in order to take over the galaxy. To counter the threat he brings, every Marvel hero we’ve seen from 2008’s Iron Man up to the yet-to-be-released Black Panther will be fighting back. Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring basically every canonically-alive ‘super’ from the MCU, opens May 4, 2018.
