The first trailer for Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” debuted during “Good Morning America” yesterday.
It’s over two minutes long, and it features virtually EVERY major superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, although you don’t see them until the very end.
It includes Black Panther fighting a four-armed alien, Spider-Man in an armored costume, Vision looking human then losing his Infinity Stone, the villain Thanos with two stones in his gauntlet, and a wounded Thor being rescued by the Guardians.
And just to underscore how big this is, the trailer racked up more than 38 million views in its FIRST DAY online.
“Infinity War” crashes into theaters on May 4th. It’s the third “Avengers” movie . . . and the 19th movie since Marvel launched the series with “Iron Man” in 2008. The fourth “Avengers” movie is coming out in 2019.
It’s possible that not all the characters will make it out of these next two “Avengers” movies alive. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently said that these movies will be a turning point…
“We’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before . . . there will be two distinct periods. Everything before [‘Avengers 4’] and everything after.”
By the way, some people on social media are making fun of how NOT evil Thanos looks, especially without his crown. But can we just stop the bullying?
