Today the 2nd full trailer for the film was released and I have to say that it looks bloody amazing. The film is combining almost every single superhero from across the 18-film franchise that began 10 years ago with the release of Iron Man in 2008. As the star-studded trailer shows, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, Chris Evans’ Captain America, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, the rest of the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and pretty much every other ancillary character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in the movie.
All these highly paid actors will be joining forces against the villainous Thanos (Josh Brolin), the big bad that Marvel has been teasing in post-credit stingers since the first Avengers film was released six years ago. Thanos is trying to gather the six Infinity Stones, great items of power from across the various Marvel films. And judging by the trailer below, it’s going to be an uphill battle to stop him.
The film is directed by the Russo brothers, who also worked on the the last two Captain America films. Let’s hope that Avengers: Infinity War isn’t a snooze-fest. I doubt that it will be though. Personally I think that it will be mind-blowingly awesome and I simply can’t wait.
