“So this is it…”
The music! Captain America’s new shield! Black Widow’s blonde bob! The brand new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War debuted during yesterday’s Super Bowl, and as you can tell, our hype levels have motherf***ing skyrocketed.
In the (short) new trailer, over 40 heroes assemble to take down the mad-titan Thanos, who has been lurking in the shadows ever since his first appearance in The Avengers (2012).
The epic blockbuster boasts an all-star cast which includes Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Dave Bautista (Drax), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Pratt (Star Lord), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Karen Gillan (Nebula).
Deep breath for even more star power: completing the cast is Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Paul Bettany (Vision), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man).
Watch the trailer below…
Avengers: Infinity War will be released in UK cinemas on 27 April and in the US on 4 May.
The highly-anticipated movie is the first of two films starring Thanos. The fourth – and untitled – Avengers movie will be released May 2019.
While we wait, Black Panther – the first film in the MCU with a black lead – will be released 16 February, and will star Chadwick Boseman in the title role, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.
Directed by Ryan Coogler – best known for his critically acclaimed film Creed – Black Panther will follow the titular hero (Boseman) as he returns to his secret, technologically advanced African nation, Wakanda, as king. Watch the trailer here.
