The new trailer for Infinity war was out this week, and people liked it. And they should. In a single movie, Marvel brings together every hero in the cinematic universe and pits them against the most powerful Marvel villain so far and his army of aliens. Here’s the trailer, in case you haven’t seen it:
The truth is, there is so much to in this trailer that there is no way I can mention everything in one post. But I can try.
Strange is back, and he’s bringing his friends. Dr. Strange has been a bit of an oddball so far. He is far more powerful than just about any Avenger, and even with his cameo in Thor: Ragnarok he was held back and mysterious. Maybe that will change now that he is fighting alongside the “mainstream” Avengers.
It appears Vision has found a way to give himself synthetic skin. It will be interesting to see if it is a disguise, a human form, or a transfer of consciousness. Either way, an android becoming a human is pretty damn cool.
Loki’s up to no good, as usual. He has his hands on the Tesseract, which he presumably took with him as Asgard was destroyed. We don’t know everything that it can do, but as we saw in The First Avenger, it is not too be messed around with. And it’s hard to imagine what else Loki might be doing with it, if not messing around.
Looks like Spidey has an Iron Man suit. As you can see on the knee pads and eyes, it’s completely robotic, but it’s still flexible–does that make it the best Iron Man armor so far?
Tony’s back to bust hulks, in what looks like a modern version of the Hulkbuster. There is a rumor that the guy inside is actually Banner, not Stark, because he doesn’t want to be Hulk again, but still wants to smash things.
Is this the death of Vision? The Stone in his forehead gave him his power, so if it is ripped out, that might be the last we see of him. He is definitely worth keeping an eye on, with the new skin and all.
Predator, is that you? Probably not. To be honest, this is a very dull and generic movie alien: green, big, misshapen head, marginally intimidating teeth…let’s just hope they’re gonna be better than all the other ones.
Thanos looks like a force to be reckoned with. The only question is, if he brought an army to do the dirty work, how powerful is he really? Hopefully, he is a badass as well as a mastermind. We’ll see.
The Black Panther movie isn’t out yet, so it’s hard to tell who the army is, but they look like they can beat up a handful of aliens.
There’s a lot to see here. Bucky has his arm back, as expected. War Machine is flying again, which is unexpected given his injuries from Civil War. The Hulk is pissed off again, even though Banner said he never wanted to be Hulk again after Ragnarok–maybe the Hulkbuster suit failed him, it really was him inside. There is someone new between Panther and Cap, though she might not be new after Black Panther. But the most interesting thing is Cap’s pitch black suit. It looks like the black Superman suit, just with more tech. In reality, the reason for the color would be that there was no time to paint it, but in a movie it makes you think. Has the first Avenger lost his patriotism after all? In Civil War, he chose independence over the law, and you could tell it was hard on him. Maybe he became a darker hero after that.
