It finally happened you guys! It’s been a long time coming, but we have been gifted with the first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and I gotta say, it’s so rad seeing all these MCU characters together in one place. I don’t want to waste too much time with explanations of these characters and their motivations before breaking this bad boy down, especially seeing as this will be the nineteenth (holy shit!) movie in the MCU and we’ve gotten to know the characters from this now truly expansive universe pretty well over these last ten years. Interestingly, this trailer does appear to be different than the one they produced for Comic Con earlier this year, but there’s still plenty to unpack here so let’s talk about the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer!

God these trailers are good. First the teaser and then the full trailer. Both are packed with so much goodness and the third and final trailer continues this tradition. They also do a great job of showing you just enough to get you excited for the movie and enjoy what you are watching without spoiling the entire thing.
It appears as though the sequel takes place relatively soon after the events of the first movie, which is strange for MCU films as they usually take place in real time. But James Gunn has never shied away from the strange, which is probably what makes him the perfect director for these movies. It looks as though the Guardians are still together after saving the Galaxy from Ronan in the last movie and have become intergalactic heroes for hire. A few familiar faces have joined the group with Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) lending a hand and it looks as though the 2008 comics relaunch ancillary character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is joining the cinematic team as a full member.
This is going to be a fun ride, so Let’s Talk About The Final Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer: Continue reading
