When the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped – I damn near cried. No Lie. And when the trailer finally showed Thanos, I actually screamed in the office (I was watching it in the office).
So for a fun fact that neither fun or a fact: I actually thought I had written a post on Avengers: Infinity War months ago, mostly because I’ve pretty much been discussing it nonstop.
But I hadn’t, so here we are.
Here’s the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War in case you haven’t seen it:
FFS, did you see how amazing it was!!! Let’s dissect it, shall we…
I genuinely don’t know where to start; I have questions, for starters, why does The Black Widow have blonde hair? Just curious. Also, why is there no footage is Hawkeye in the trailer, like he’s a pioneer avenger, an OG – it’s like Thor not being the trailer or Black Widow.
We also see Vision in a human form, that was a ??? moment. Also, I see that Loki has gotten his hands on the Tesseract again. The Tesseract is actually one of the Infinity Stones (or a containment for it) that Thanos is hunting – it is the blue stone, the space stone. And from the looks of it in this trailer, Thanos does get his hands on it.
I love that we get to see a pretty cool visualization of Peter Parker’s ‘spidey senses’; he also apparently gets his Iron-Spider costume in this movie. But as exciting as all of these are, they all pale in comparison to one thing – THANOS HAS ARRIVED!!! Zaddy is here.
This is amazing, right? But it’s also a bit of bummer, you know? Because it just means one or two of our favourite people (The Avengers) will die while fighting him – ??? That breaks my heart?
Speaking of likely candidates to die while fighting Thanos, did you see Captain America AND. THAT. BEARD. Get this man a shield! ??
“Fun isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe, but this…does put a smile on my face.” Okay, is Thanos legally allowed to sound so badass?
One of the Infinity Stones is literally in Vision’s head and in this trailer we see Thanos try to rip it out as Vision screams in pain. I’m afraid for Vision, I’m very afraid. But on a lighter note, T’Challa’s accent is actually finally growing on me.
And the end of it all when Thor says, “Who the hell are you guys?” and it’s the Guardians of the Galaxy – this was the moment I screamed out loud. It’s pretty exciting. I can’t wait to see Gamora kick ass beside Black Widow. Also the reaction of the Avengers to the Guardians at their first meeting…I can’t wait to see it.
It’s rumoured that there will be 67 heroes in this movie – It doesn’t get bigger than that, does it. Ten years in the making and it’s all culminating here – I don’t think even Marvel knew how big this would be and how huge the franchise would grow into. I can assure you that there were fan boys and fan girls all over the world crying when this trailer was dropped. I will be one of those people crying in the cinemas while watching the movie. That is a fact.
(For a fun fact, that is actually a fact, since the trailer’s release, I watch it whenever I’m feeling down or having a bad day and it instantly cheers me up).
Here’s the second trailer Marvel dropped during the Super Bowl in case the first trailer wasn’t enough for you.
On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you? I’m at Infinity….get it ??? Okay, I’m done.
