At the D23 Expo Kevin Feige presented a star studded Avengers panel and screened a trailer that brought the crowd to it’s feet.
According to Inside the Magic the following actors were on hand for the panel:
Josh Brolin (Thanos) led the group, followed by Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man).
Now, obviously, we can’t see what they saw…yet. But the Hollywood Reporter wrote out a synopsis of what was on the trailer.
The trailer — screened exclusively for attendees and not simultaneously released online — begins with The Guardians of the Galaxy in space. Suddenly, a body hits their spaceship. It’s an unconscious Thor, wearing his gladiator garb for Thor: Ragnarok.They bring him inside the ship, and he asks what’s going on.
Next we are on Earth, where our heroes are dealing with death and destruction. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has the tesseract, Peter Parker is on a school bus and sees his armhair is tingling (Spider-sense?)
It’s hard to break down how wild this trailer is, but here’s just some small observations:
— Spider-Man has a new suit, that looks quite advanced, ala the one at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming
— Captain America has a beard and looks like he’s been through a lot.
— Thanos wears the Infinity Gauntlet, and pulls down part of a moon to battle the Avengers on an alien planet.
— Doctor Strange battles alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man on this planet
I wish I could have seen this. I’m sure it will be released shortly, but probably not till after the San Diego Comic Con next week.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters May 4, 2018.
