“There was an idea…to bring together a group of remarkable people…to see if we could become something more…so that when they needed us we could fight the battles…that they never could.”
The first official teaser trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War was one incredible rush and to celebrate its release we’ve made a list of our five favourite moments from it.
Check them out below:
5. No one is safe
Right off the bat, the Russo Brothers display that no hero is safe in a post Civil War world.This is especially true of Vision (Paul Bettany) who ends up on the wrong side of Thanos and experiences horrendous suffering at the hands of the mad titan’s minions as they remove the Mind Stone from his head. All bets are off as to who will survive Thanos’ wrath and the stakes have definitely been raised.
Captain America is no more, and Steve Rogers, the man who carried the shield is now a completely different man. Devoid of the stars and stripes, Chris Evans’ Rogers is seen sporting longer hair and one epic beard and has assumed the alias of Nomad. But burning inside him is still the heart of a hero, and Rogers isn’t going to let Earth, or the Infinity Stones, fall to Thanos without a fight.
3. Once more unto the breach
It was a moment that took my breath away as Captain America, Black Panther, Black Widow, The Winter Soldier, Hulk and the armies of Wakanda made an epic dash to confront the alien invaders of the Black Order. What I’m anticipating to be a heroic last stand is going to be an all-out cinematic extravaganza as the Avengers come together once more to save our world!
2. Thanos: The Mad Titan
He’s the cosmic big bad that has long been teased and now, finally, Josh Brolin takes centre stage as the ultimate villain Thanos. This war-mongering titan and celestial conqueror is here on earth for one reason and one reason only: The Infinity Stones. These six special stones, when brought together, will allow whoever controls them dominion over the entire universe, and Thanos thinks he’s the man to wear them. It’s no doubt that Thanos definitely has an eye for bling and he’s going to take Earth’s mightiest heroes apart to get them. The stakes have never been higher, and the fate of the entire cosmos hangs in the balance.
1. “Who the hell are you guys?”
While Thanos might have been front and centre, it was the appearance of the galaxy’s great team of outlaws that had me all smiles. Seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy rock up at the end of the trailer was one hell of an epic moment and you can be sure that Star-Lord and the rest of the gang are going to bring plenty of AWESOME back to earth with them.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 25, 2018.
