‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer, Featuring Thanos A** Kicking, Debuts

As much as I love watching all the superheroes and ancillary characters do their respective thing in the Marvel Universe, a few omelettes need to be broken, so it’s great to see Thanos (Josh Brolin) deliver bone-shattering punishment in the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

Featuring voiceovers from various Avengers members (as well as Nick Fury), the trailer sets up the ultimate battle against Thanos, the Infinity gem collector who, after attacking these gems (or they’re often referred to as stones) to his glove, will have ultimate power of the universe. Comic book fans know Thanos’ confrontation with Vision leads to his grabbing of the mind stone, but it’s pretty cool to see that spoiler doled out in the trailer (at the 1:41 mark). Also having a bad day is Spider-Man, who gets knocked the f**k out by Thanos at the 1:51 mark.

The one thing to expect from these Infinity War films (the first installment comes out May 4, 2018) is that someone of great import will die trying to save the world from Thanos. My guess is that Iron Man, who’s had his share of battles with Captain America, will perish. Robert Downey Jr. helped reinvigorate the Marvel brand with 2008’s Iron Man, and Avengers: Infinity War would be a fitting end to his storied run.

Who do you think will die in Avengers: Infinity War and are you excited for the film? feel free to comment below!!
