Review: Avengers: Infinity War Second Trailer

“The entire time I knew him he only ever had one goal… To wipe out half the universe. If he gets all of the Infinity Stones he can do it with a snap of his fingers” –  Gamora

All I have to say is WOW! that was something! Honestly for me that topped the first trailer we saw back in November. I won’t waste anymore of your time because there is a lot jam-packed into this 2 minute trailer.

Flashback scenes of Gamora as a child with her father Thanos

The trailer opens with a monologue by Gamora who is talking about how her Father’s (Thanos) one goal is to wipe out half of the universe. We start to see scenes of a Thanos looking very differently from the Thanos we saw in the last trailer. A lot of these shots show Thanos with his full armour on which personally is his best look to me. I like how a lot of this trailer is focused on the character of Thanos. We see flashback scenes of a young Gamora holding his hand on their home planet. It’ll be interesting to see what will happen when they see each other again.

“We’ve got one advantage… He’s coming to us” – Tony Stark

After 10 years of build up Thanos has finally arrived on Earth

This line from Tony Stark tells us how Thanos has finally made his way to Earth and is now invading. How many planet’s he destroys on his way to Earth we don’t know yet. Remember the Power Stone is currently located in Xandar from Guardians of the Galaxy. So I’m sure we’ll see a scene of Thanos visiting there collecting the Power Stone before he arrives on Earth. New York as we know it seems to be the place where Thanos chooses to invade first as we see Peter Parker is forced to abandon his school bus to swing around the city because of what is going on in the sky.

“We have what Thanos wants so that’s what we use” – Tony Stark

Scarlet Witch and Vision both in Wakanda, part of a plan to bring Thanos to Wakanda?

It looks like the Avengers are actually using the Infinity Stones to their advantage as a way to bait Thanos. While Tony says this line we see shots of Doctor Strange with Eye of Agamotto and Vision who is of course the one in possession of the Mind Stone. Now what I’ve been wondering this whole time is “Where the hell is the soul stone, is it in Wakanda?!”. Watching this trailer again it’s clear that Vision is now in Wakanda. So it looks like they’re protecting him instead of the soul stone which makes sense to me. Tony’s line above shows that have some type of plan where they are using Vision to draw Thanos to Wakanda. I mean why not they clearly have the best weapons by being the most technological advanced country in the world. This explains why half of the Avengers are in Wakanda during this trailer and most likely for the majority of the movie.

The Black Order pictured with Loki straight after Thor: Ragnarok?

Also in this trailer we get to see shots of Thanos’s own team the ‘Black Order’ which includes characters like Proxima Midnight, Loki, Ebony Maw, Corvus Glaive and Cull Obsidian. It’s interesting that when we first see all of them together in the same shot they’re also standing with Loki. I’m not sure if Loki is on their side or if this is from when they first meet when we Thanos’s ship turned up at the Thor: Ragnarok. Ebony Maw is the one who looks like he is about to kill Doctor Strange in that crazy shot.

Captain America going toe to toe with Thanos

Now my favourite shot of the entire trailer comes at the end where Cap stands up to Thanos. I literally screamed “No way”. I know Cap is a super soldier but it’s crazy to see him match his power on the big screen. This shot is exactly reminiscent of an iconic shot from the comics where Cap stands in the way of Thanos and goes toe to toe with him. It’s also important to note that throughout both trailers Thanos only has two Infinity Stones on his gauntlet. One being the Space Stone (blue) we saw in the first Avengers movie. We actually see a shot of Thanos crushing the Tesseract turning it into a stone for his gauntlet. The second stone he has on his gauntlet is the Power Stone (purple) which we last saw in Guardians of The Galaxy. Will we see Thanos collect all the stones during this film or will that be the ending shot?

Character meet ups he haven’t seen yet in the MCU

Other than the epic fight scenes and dialogue from Thanos this trailer still shows there is some fun to be had with this film as we see characters start to meet up. Everyone except Hawkeye of course the poor guy. We get to see Cap, Black Widow and Banner turn up at Wakanda to meet T’Challa and Shuri. We see the Guardians of the Galaxy meet Tony Stark as Starlord tells him his plan sucks. The last shot of the trailer is dedicated to a great scene between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man where they are introducing themselves to each other.

I don’t know what else to say, this was a great trailer. I was worried they wouldn’t be able to live up to the first trailer because I loved it so much but they did. Right now we are only one month away before this film comes out, I can’t believe it. This is about to be the longest month ever!

Let me know what you thought of the trailer down below!

 

Avengers: Infinity War Second Trailer Set To Be Released Tomorrow!

We are just one month away from one of the biggest comic book movies ever. It feels like forever since we got that first trailer for Infinity War back in November last year. Now we are finally getting the second trailer tomorrow! The Russo Brothers did hint that the trailer would be coming sometime this week on Twitter with themselves asking for the trailer. Well it looks like we don’t have to wait much longer now as the Marvel Studios Twitter account posted a video with the tagline ‘Tomorrow’.

As for what I hope to see from the trailer I honestly don’t know. I loved the first trailer so much I don’t know how they’ll top that but I trust them. I’ll be fine with just one trailer if it were up to me because I’m that hyped for the trailer.

Here’s a list of what I want to see from this upcoming trailer:

  1. Reference to where the soul stone maybe located
  2. More interactions with characters we haven’t seen before
  3. More scenes in Wakanda
  4. Focus a little more on Thanos, especially the Children of Thanos
  5.  Are there anymore locations in this which we haven’t explored yet?
  6. Shots of characters we haven’t seen yet (Hulk not Banner, Hawkeye, Ant-Man)

That’s all I have for my expectations… Not a lot I know mainly because of that first trailer but I trust Marvel will hit it out the park again with this trailer.

Let me know your expectations for the trailer tomorrow

Be sure to come back here tomorrow as I will have a full breakdown/review of the trailer.

 

 

5 CHARACTERS WHO COULD DIE IN AVENGERS INFINITY WAR

New set photos from Avengers 4 raises more questions

——————————————-WARNING POTENTIAL SPOILERS————————————–

Yesterday more set photos leaked from the production of Avengers 4 (untitled) (Via. JustJared) which is currently being filmed in Atlanta. Now with Avengers Infinity War coming out later this year these set photos may have revealed a huge spoiler for the upcoming film. With set photos that leaked earlier last year it was rumoured that there would be some type of time travel involved in Avengers 4. Now that is confirmed as we can see from the set photos below especially with Captain America who is wearing his suit from Avengers Assemble (2012). Chris Evans in the set photos is joined by Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man). What has me interested is if they’re going back in time how does Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man fit into this as he wasn’t present at all in the previous films?

As for the end of Avengers Infinity War this further creates questions for me. Does everyone die in the end? Will Doctor Strange have to reverse time to the first Avengers film for some reason? How do the likes of Ant-Man and Captain Marvel fit into this?

Avengers: Infinity War is set to in May this year while Avengers 4 is set to be released exactly one year later in 2019

Let me know your thoughts down below and fell free to check out the set photos too.
