The Russo Brothers teased it for what seemed to be an eternity. The highly anticipated third Avengers film has finally debuted a teaser trailer. Check out the trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War below.

Sadly, this was never going to be what the comic book was. The omission of Adam Warlock guarantees that. The footage kicks all kinds of ass regardless. According to head honcho Kevin Feige, the Infinity films are going to reshape the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and most likely this film and the part 2 will be the end of the line for more than one MCU character. I really hope Thanos isn’t killed though . He REALLY shouldn’t be; just like they NEVER should have “killed” Ultron. But that’s just my thinking.

Confirmed cast members for the film include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Josh Brolin, and Paul Rudd. A noteworthy absence is Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson who they apparently couldn’t find Room for.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are directing both Avengers: Infinity War and the sequel Avengers Infinity Gauntlet. Both films were shot entirely with IMAX cameras. Because bigger is better, etc.

Edit:  This 7 min clip ending with the Infinity War trailer is just to bad ass not to include in this. It just shows how nicely Marvel Studios has set up this 10 year plan:

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is slated for a release in theaters on May 4, 2018. The currently untitled follow-up is scheduled for release on May 3, 2019.

  1. I never read a damn Marvel comic in my life, and my ass is still in a seat for all the MCU movies. The star power in these films is incredible.

    • That’s what I was thinking. Tease her at the end of INFINITY WAR, giving audiences their first (albeit brief) look at the character, before her movie next year. After we’ve all seen her movie, then it would feel more natural, less jarring, to see her to play a more prominent role in the INFINITY WAR sequel a few months later.

  2. I think I’ve only missed one or two Marvel movies so far (Dr. Strange being one), but I’ll catch them on video anyway. Personally, all of these comic book movies are a childhood dream realized and I’m sure Kevin Feige must kiss the ground every day he’s able to go to work.

  3. I personally worry for my enthusiasm once the Infinity War finishes. Anything after the War will be just: meh…it’s ok…but I’ve seen the pinnacle of years worth of time investment, had my orgasm, now it’s time for a sammich and a nap.

    • I think that’s a big part of why Disney acquired Fox. Reboot X-Men and FF, and that sets up many new things for post-Infinity War.

  4. Introducing Captain marvel too early runs the danger of nerfing most of the Avengers, because her power level is so high, WHILE trying to incorporate her personality into the group. I think it is just one more large piece of narrative to add to an already crowded agenda. The biggest things should be saying proper goodbye to the characters who die, and the new dynamic of guardians meeting Avengers.
