The first trailer for the biggest, most anticipated Marvel movie ever just dropped. Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and stars, well, basically everyone.
Avengers: Infinity War is the beginning of the end for the first major story arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will feature Thanos (Josh Brolin), who first appeared in 2012’s The Avengers, attempting to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in order to take over the galaxy. Of course, every Marvel hero we’ve seen so far will be on the war path trying to prevent that. The story has built up over the last 10 years, starting in 2008’s Iron Man and going all the way through the yet-to-be-released Black Panther.
There’s plenty to unpack in this trailer and surely plenty more to come over the next few months. At this point I’m just glad to see some resolution on the horizon, the superhero film fatigue is real.
Avengers: Infinity War opens May 4, 2018.
