War is coming. Thanos is coming. The latest mega team-up from Marvel Studios is coming. 10 years of superheroics have been building to Avengers: Infinity War, the beginning of the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Ever since the tease of Thanos at the end of The Avengers in 2012, fans have been waiting as various Infinity Stones have found their way into the Marvel world and now they’ll be part of an epic showdown that features just about every major character introduced in the MCU since 2008. Today brings the latest trailer for the epic culmination of 10 years of Marvel Studios films.
Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are bringing the epic battle that pits Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against the Mad Titan, Thanos (Josh Brolin). Infinity War will features the classic Avengers line-up led by Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans), as well as tying in the cosmic side of the MCU with the Guardians of the Galaxy entering the mix. Whether or not our favorite heroes make it out of Infinity War alive remains to be seen, but the latest trailer for the film does inform us that this epic battle will take place in the far reaches of the cosmos and in the secluded nation of Wakanda.
The timing couldn’t be better for Avengers: Infinity War, as Marvel is hot off the heels of Black Panther, its biggest hit since the first Avengers. Co-starring alongside Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa are such famous faces as Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and many, many more.
The biggest battle in the MCU is coming to theaters on April 27, 2018 when Avengers: Infinity War opens worldwide.
