Marvel fans around the world have been anticipating this event for months. They have waited to see shots from one of their most anticipated movies of 2018: Avengers: Infinity War, and finally they have. The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s finale is set to release in May of next year, but we got a special trailer to it that broke records as the most viewed trailer with 230 million views in 24 hours.
The trailer starts with a conversation with The Avengers like Thor, Iron Man, and Black Widow, talking about their purpose of creating the team to help humanity. Following the Marvel logo, Thanos, the movie’s villain, starts a monologue as destruction begins. Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is seen running out of a door which some speculate is Doctor Strange’s headquarters. Peter Parker also notices a huge object in the sky from his school bus.
As the trailer goes on, we get shots of different characters like Black Panther and a now, brunette and bearded Steve Rogers (Captain America).
Then, after the logo for the movie comes on, darkness fills the screen but the trailer keeps going. Thor appears and asks, “Who are you guys?” It turns out he is talking to the Guardians of the Galaxy who haven’t interacted with any other Marvel characters.
Sophomore Ameya Sriam had one word after watching it, “Incredible.”
“I’m excited to see all these characters come together from different storylines,” she commented, “but they unite here!”
The trailer gives off even more questions to fans. What will happen? Who is going to die? Who is going to survive Thanos’s wrath? We will see on May 4, 2018.
