The first trailer for the biggest, most anticipated Marvel movie ever is finally here.
It’s been a long time coming, but Marvel has finally released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming superhero team-up to end all superhero team-ups, Avengers: Infinity War.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and starring basically everyone, here’s the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
As the clip shows, Infinity War is shaping up to be one of Marvel’s biggest movies ever, uniting the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and almost every other superhero Marvel has ever put on-screen in the 17 prior films over the last decade. All these heroes are banding together to face off against Thanos, the big bad that Marvel has been teasing since the post-credits scene of the first Avengers back in 2012.
Infinity War is the beginning of the end for the first major story arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will show the mad titan Thanos (Josh Brolin), who first appeared in 2012’s The Avengers, attempting to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in order to take over the galaxy. Fighting back will be every Marvel hero we’ve seen so far, starting in 2008’s Iron Man and going all the way up through the yet-to-be-released Black Panther.
Infinity War is set to be a major, game-changing film for Marvel — so big, in fact, that the story will spill over to a second, still-untitled Avengers movie set for release in 2019.
Along with the trailer, Marvel has also released the first poster for the movie, which doesn’t do much but remind viewers that yes, this is, in fact, an Avengers movie, see below.
