share on:

Get that man a shield and get us a box of tissues cause Infinity War is bringing the DRAMA!

It is the moment Marvel fans have been waiting for since word broke that a teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped in Hall H during SDCC back in July. Well, Marvel has been keeping us waiting but with The Last Jedi being released in a couple weeks there was no way in hell that an Infinity War trailer would not play before that! So around 8:30 AM Wednesday us normal people were finally gifted the official first trailer!

Before we break down the magical trailer, let’s get official with the synopsis just as a quick refresher:

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Now here is the trailer if you actually have not watched it!

What You May Have Missed:

  • No, you were not mistaken, Hawkeye is NOWHERE to be seen in this trailer! Here is hoping that after Cap breaks him out of superhero jail he returned to his farm and family.
  • We can now assume that the events Black Panther film and Thor: Ragnarok are happening parallel since Infinity War picks up pretty much right after that mid-credit scene in Ragnarok and the tribes seem to be united in Wakanda.
  • Speaking of Ragnarok it seemed that Thanos did some damage!
    • We have Bruce/Hulk crashing into Doctor Strange’s house.
    • Thor being picked up by the Guardians.
    • Loki seemingly handing over a damn infinity stone over to Thanos after hopefully not killing all the Asgard people but it looks like a lot of them.
    • But where the hell is Valkyrie?!
  • Will Loki pull a Loki and side with the bad guy? UGH, I am getting tired of this storyline!
  • For a good part of the trailer, it looks like our heroes are gathering together in small groups in NYC and Wakanda.
  • Let’s chat about that scary Infinity Gauntlet aka Thanos’ gold glove and the Infinity Stones!
    • According to comic book history, the Infinity Gauntlet can hold SIX STONES: Time Gem, Space Gem, Soul Gem, Reality Gem, Power Gem, Mind Gem, and Night Omnipotence. Not sure if the MCU is doing 6 or just 5 stones!
    • In the Gauntlet is the Space Gem via the Tesseract and the Power Gem that we first saw in Guardians of the Galaxy.
    • During the trailer, we do see Thanos attacking Vision to get the Mind Gem which is located on Vision’s forehead!
    • We know the stone from Thor: The Dark World (not sure which one it is!) is with The Collector.
    • Another one of Thanos’ children pop up – Proxima.
  • Now to the most important thing about the trailer – NOMAD CAP!
    • I think we can all agree that Black Panther had the BEST LINE – “Get this man a shield.”
    • So how long has Cap been in Wakanda? Does this mean we will be getting a Cap mid-credit scene during the Black Panther film?
    • Let’s hope in this war Cap never finds a razor!
  • It looks like all our superheroes make their way to Wakanda to battle out with creatures that Thanos releases upon the country!

Kait’s Brilliant Predictions:

  • Will All the Heros Assemble Together?
    • I doubt that we will see our space heroes on Earth until 2019.
  • Captain Marvel Are You There?
    • Yea I know, the events of the 2019 Captain Marvel film starring Brie Larson will take place in the 1990s before the events of the current MCU but like do aliens age? Could Carol pop up in space to help out the Guardians and Thor? As a member of the Carol Corps, I could hope!
  • Who Will Die
    • Since no major character died during Civil War – though I could name a couple we could have lost – that means that final two installments of this phase of the MCU are going to pack some emotional punch.
      • Tony Stark/Iron Man – it makes sense that the man who started it all to leave it all on the field.
      • Steve Rodgers/Captain America – Cap has been fighting his heart out for literally YEARS. Tony may be the man who started it all but Cap has been the heart of the MCU. The loss of Tony or Cap will be heartbreaking but the loss of both will be game-changing.
        • Now, I think one will die in Infinity War (Tony) and Cap will break our hearts in the 2019 film.
      • Vision – I mean he is literally an Infinity Stone and Thanos like really wants them!
  • How Will the Film End?
    • I think Infinity War will end with Thanos getting all the stones leaving us to enter the final battle that will take place in SPACE!
  • What happens after 2019
    • The New Avengers – DUH!

Well, that is all for now, thanks for reading!

Avengers: Infinity War hits theater May 4, 2018!
