All hands on deck! Galactic supervillain Thanos is coming and it’s time for the greatest alliance of superheroes to defeat him. The latest and final trailer of Avengers: Infinity War depicts battle scenes, comedic dialogue, and the desolation Thanos brings with him.
Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th after Robert Downey Jr.’s tease ran rampant on the internet and Marvel later confirmed it.
That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building this story arc up through post-credit scenes since the first Avengers six years ago. Thanos is closer than he’s been before with two infinity stones in his possession. The trailer reveals Thanos meeting the leader of an extra0terrestrial force and an apparent quintet of villains including Loki amongst them. Like Gamora said, if Thanos takes all six infinity stones, he will be unstoppable.
It will be an exciting spectacle certain to highlight a few recent additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – including Black Panther and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man – and possibly end some current incarnations of superheroes. Robert Downey Jr as the billionaire rebel Tony Stark/Ironman and Chris Evans as the morally driven Captain America are both contractually obliged to finish Infinity War. As of this writing, neither has signed on to an unnamed Avengers 4 film.
