Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer #1 (2018) “There Was An Idea…”

What began in 2008 with Iron Man will begin to come to a close in 2018 with the release of Avengers: Infinity War.  The first of a two-part finale to an unprecedented 22-movie story arc spanning the Marvel Universe, the film will unite essentially the entire MCU in a fight against the Mad Titan Thanos.  Heroes will die.  Stories will end.  The first trailer is essentially a polished version of the one shown to crowds exclusively at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con, but it’s spectacular.  We’ll have more analysis later in the day along with tons of stills from this jaw-dropper, but for now watch, rinse, repeat.  Avengers: Infinity War opens May 4, 2018.

    1. Callllm yourself Widders…..no I was pretty much the same way. This last scene is really the only difference between the Comic Con trailer because it gives away Thor’s appearance post-Ragnarok. The Comic Con opened with Thor hitting the window of the Milano and Rocket screaming GET IT OFF! GET IT OFF!

  1. Oh. My. God. Heart palpitations.

    I just have one concern though.

    Sorry, this is my way.

    Am I the only one wondering if it’s possible for an endeavor like this to be pulled off in a way that makes it feel like a satisfying payoff? Even with two films that i’m assuming will be long? There are just so many characters and so many threads to be pulled together. SO many. And they have to do it without sacrificing any action. I’m actually surprised they did not make a trilogy.

    I am not not not questioning the talent of any of the people involved, i’m just wondering if Orson Welles himself could have made a film truly deliver with this kind of buildup. Probobly, but he was the only one in the history of film. I really hope Disney did not back itself into a corner by making this first arc as long as 22 films, and just assuming that the filmmakers who happened to be under contract would pull things together when the time came. I know the MCU is planned out, but I hope the plan for Infinity War was set down in a very special kind of stone from the very start.

    Ok, i’m Done being a wet blanket. What a trailer this is.

      1. Dave, if you are that certain, I will let your faith extend to cover my doubts. Instead of being worried by the insane scope of this thing, I will choose to be awed by it.

      2. I have no doubts. It’s been meticulously planned as the end game for so long and filming was done over such an extended period with the Russo Brothers who have put out arguably the two best MCU films in Winter Solider and Civil War, which featured an enormous cast and served as a primer for what they’d have to deal with in IW. I think the first part is going to be a lot more Earth based and the second cosmic based just on gut, but I don’t care. They have this. Appreciate the faith.

      3. I love the tone of Winter Soldier and Civil War so much. My only concern with the MCU to date is that I wish it were a little weightier, but the Russos have nailed it every time. They need to keep making these films past the IW’s, to keep the MCU grounded and periodically remind everyone of the stakes.
