We already know that the Avengers will be getting some help from the Guardians of the Galaxy in “Avengers: Infinity War” right? But here’s something to get you even more excited.
A few days ago, Marvel Studios released a brand new teaser video, giving us our first look at Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Star-Lord on set together. In addition, a couple of new fan art were also unveiled.
The first piece shows Josh Brolin as the main character Thanos. Although many fans are hoping that The Mad Titan will make an appearance in this year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, it’s best not to get your hopes up as we may only get to see him in 2018.
From the trailer, we get a brief explanation of the Infinity Stones which have been featured in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Since Thanos is the main character in “Avengers: Infinity War”, a healthy amount of the story will be portrayed from his point-of-view, thus giving viewers a better insight into this villain.
The image above shows The Mad Titan placing either the Space or Power stone into his iconic golden glove. We can’t imagine any instances where Thanos goes into battle without his Gauntlet or armour.
Here’s what Marvel President Kevin Feige has to say about properly bringing Thanos into the fold:
“For us, the important thing is making it all come together. We know they’re gonna face Thanos. We’ve been setting that up since ‘Avengers 1’. How do you do that in a way that is unexpected that pits the Avengers against somebody who is more powerful than anybody they’ve faced and yet make them completely unprepared to face them? Well, you tear them apart, and that’s why we did ‘Civil War’ before ‘Infinity War’.”
This terrifying villain will take on approximately 65 Marvel superheroes. It’s inevitable that not every character will make it out alive. So who lives? Who dies? We don’t know yet, but fans can expect there to be a blood bath.
Interestingly, the behind-the-scenes sneak peak also depicts another exciting fan art of Rocket Raccoon fighting alongside Mighty Thor. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the God of Thunder appears to be gripping a long-handled weapon, possibly Jarnbjorn.
It is suspected that Thor is forced to pick up a new weapon when his trusty enchanted hammer, Mjolnir (which typically has a shorter handle), gets destroyed in “Thor: Ragnarok”. This just gets more and more interesting, doesn’t it?
While we patiently wait for more details to unfold, watch the amazing video below and also Robert Downey Jr.’s Facebook Live session. It not only features directors Joe and Anthony Russo, but also Chris Pratt, and Tom Holland.
