The Avengers: Infinity War Debuts Footage At D23, And We Are Still Shaking, One of the biggest blockbusters of all time is scheduled to land in less than a year, and we truly couldn’t be more excited. The entire Marvel Cinematic Universe to this point has been building towards the showdown with Thanos in The Avengers: Infinity War, and it’s practically painful that we need to wait nearly 10 more months to finally see it. With any luck, it won’t be too long before the first trailer debuts online… but today we got a very special treat in the form of a first look at Disney’s D23 Expo. And it left us literally shaking.
This morning’s main event down in Anaheim, California was Disney’s big live-action panel – celebrating the upcoming titles from Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, and more – and part of that experience was a debut peek at The Avengers: Infinity War. And while there are still two Marvel Studios movies to go before the huge film gets here, it legitimately can’t get here soon enough, as the film seriously looks like it could be one of the most epic blockbusters ever created.
Following a quick look back at the Marvel movies of the past, the footage began with the Guardians of the Galaxy flying out in space, with Mantis (Pom Klementeiff) telling the group that they are arriving at their destination. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) warns everyone to put on their game faces thanks to the danger they may face — but as they slow down they realize that they’re not seeing what they expect to see. Instead, the Milano arrives to space filled with destruction — and the group is surprised when a body hits their windshield. This is no ordinary body, however: it’s none other than the God of Thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth).
Thor, who is still unconscious, is brought into the ship and put down on a table, and Mantis uses her abilities to wake the Asgardian up. As she does, he rockets up from the table, and has a serious look of concern across his face, asking “Who the hell are you guys?” As they continue to fly through space, Thor joins Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) in one of the ship’s portholes, and as they look out, the former mutters, “Something is very wrong.”
More to come…
