I had the biggest geekasm I’ve had in years yesterday because the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was released. It’s one of the most-anticipated film releases of 2018 and it looks like it’s going to live up to expectations.
Remember 2008? Remember the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely remember Iron Man and like most of the Marvel films I’ve watched in the last decade, it completely blew me away. I have to admit that not ALL of them were amazing, but that I enjoyed the majority of them (especially the first Avengers film, Doctor Strange, Thor and the last 2 Captain America films).
It’s crazy to think that Avengers: Infinity War will be the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It won’t be the only Marvel film of 2018 either: Black Panther will be released in February and Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released in July of next year.
What makes Avengers: Infinity War awesome is the fact that we are going to see the Avengers, Spider-man, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man and the Guardians Of The Galaxy in ONE film. Now you probably understand why I had that geekasm, right?
This summary basically sums up the film: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Check out the trailer below, I’m pretty sure that you’ll have a geekasm too…
