Hey, friends and fellow superhero aficionados. Today, the new trailer for the upcoming Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War dropped. Naturally, this is kind of a big deal for those of us who are Marvel film nuts, and have (im)patiently been waiting on its sequel. From Marvel, here’s a look at the teaser synopsis for ‘Infinity War.’
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.
I’ve loved each of the Marvel films thus far. Granted some are a favored a bit more than others, but overall, I’ve liked them all. That said, I am a little “worried” about the darker tone this MCU has adopted. I understand its reasoning, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
Let’s talk about this plan of yours. I think it’s good, except it sucks. So let me do the plan and then, that way, it might be really good. – Avengers: Infinity War
The sequel for this follow-up sequel looks to be (as I said already) darker complete with lots of destruction, and is even rumored to kill of some of our beloved Avengers. Can I just say the following: please noooo!! Retire them, or do something we can all live with… just don’t kill ’em! On the upside, we get to see the Guardians and more Dr. Strange, so…
Returning cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch (YAY!), Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olson, and many more from the MCU world. Until now, Marvel has always been the master of creating breath-catching suspense (action) and blending humor in perfectly. It’s my hope, these new and upcoming films don’t lost that “center” or heart of their storytelling. It’s what sets them apart.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27th!
