Avengers: Infinity War Trailer and Some Scattered Thoughts
The last, "Big," trailer before, "Avengers: Infinity War," hits theaters this April 27th arrived upon the internet yesterday. It was a pleasant way to start the weekend and you can watch it right up above this post. I just wanted to share some thoughts about it, helpfully collected in various talking-points...
Infinity stones explained!
I was happy to see the trailer have the characters just straight-up discussing how Thanos wants the Infinity Stones and that's why he is coming to Earth. I was kind of worried almost the entire movie would be, "Who is this guy, what does he want from us?" and would end with that finally revealed for a sequel where the, "Real fight," then happens. Thank God that isn't the case and everyone earlier on will know what the deal is.
The Guardians of the Galaxy meet the Avengers
We all were waiting for that magic moment Chris Pratt's smart-ass Star-Lord would exchange a quip with Robert Downey Junior's smart-ass Iron Man. We got to see that and I loved it.
No love for Hawkeye
This trailer lacked certain Marvel characters, with Ant-Man being MIA. One really notable absence considering he's been there from the start however would be Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye. The dude ain't even on posters for the movie. He kind of got some of the spotlight in, "Avengers: Age of Ultron," but has basically been everyone's least-favorite Avenger since then in terms of the movies. Poor guy.
Spider-Man is always a delight
Tom Holland continues to make a great Peter Parker/Spider-Man with his quip at the end about Doctor Strange and how they must be using their, "Made-up names," is absolutely hilarious.
We got to see more of Wakanda and it is clear that Thanos and his forces will be attacking there. It should be a good time watching what appears to be Steve Rogers, Bucky, Black Widow, Black Panther along with the army of Wakanda fighting Thanos' evil forces.
Chris Evans looks good with a beard
Chris Evans makes a good Captain America, and he also looks quite snappy with a beard. I hope he doesn't have to shave it during the movie as its a good look.
The Vision's gonna die, right?
My last thought is one that isn't in the trailer, but we all know that The Vision is in some serious trouble right? If the whole point of the Infinity Gauntlet is for Thanos to get all the stones, he will need to rip it right out of The Vision's forehead in what will most likely be a violent and climatic movie-moment. I mean, it could possibly not happen, but I'm pretty sure it will.
