D23: Marvel screens ‘Avengers Infinity War’ trailer, details emerge as the Black Order confirmed

During the D23 Expo Marvel Studios unveiled the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer at the official panel. It was a two-hour panel which introduced many of all-star actors and Josh Brolin who personified the arrogant Thanos.

An exclusive D23 poster showcases Brolin’s Mad Titan in the classic movie comics pose with the Infinity Gauntlet (left).

Marvel Studios exec Kevin Feige introduced Brolin: “Thanos bows to no man.”

A series of statues were unveiled confirming the appearance of Black Order: Proxima Midnight, Black Dwarf (Cull Obsidian), The Ebony Maw and Corvus Glaive/Supergiant. CBM published close up photos of each statue HERE.

Back in March, set photos led to rumors of the Black Order appearing in the film. Screenrant noted that “…two actors in mo-cap suits, holding impressive-looking weapons. One is a double-ended weapon with a spear-style head and a curved blade on the bottom, and the other looks something like a trident-shaped weapon.”

Proxima Midnight wields a staff-style weapon in the comics and earlier this year, mo-cap actor Terry Notary revealed he would be playing one of four henchmen that Thanos has in Infinity War.

Trailer description below.

The trailer footage was kicked off with an intro of the Infinity Stone scenes in earlier movies and then…

The Guardians of the Galaxy in space and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) announcing “We are arriving,” as the Milano pulls into an uncertain territory. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) gives instructions: “Don’t forget this might be dangerous, so let’s put on our mean faces.”

Suddenly a body smashes up against their ship. ““Wipe it! Wipe it! Get it off! Get it away,” Rocket (Bradley Cooper) says and when they bring it on board, it’s clearly Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in his gladiator armor. He was woken up by Mantis with Thor, who is ready for a fight before asking “Who the hell are you guys?”

Next we see the Guardians with Thor, flying to another planet, and when they arrive—again, it’s just massive destruction again. They all know something is very wrong. Cut to Earth. Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is moving some cars and dodging an energy blast and a female voiceover says “Death follows him like a shadow.”

After a transition, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki offering the Tesseract up as a gift, presumably to Thanos.
This time we cut to Queens and the hairs on the arm of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) stand up (hinting at his Spidey sense) and he turns to see the ship flying towards Earth. “We have one advantage,” Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) says. “He’s coming to us.” As the ship crashes, we see Mantis, Iron Man, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and a few others characters in total shock.

“Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe. But this … does put a smile on my face,” Thanos says. “I know what it’s like to lose, to fight so desperately with all your life, but to fail just the same,” Thanos goes on.

Gamora (Zoe Saldana) turns around in total horror. “But this puts a smile on my face.” Star-Lord: “Oh no.” And out of a black hole emerges the purple madman, Thanos.

During footage of a fight, Doctor Strange puts down platforms with Star-Lord leaping off of them, firing his laser pistols. Spidey is revealed in his new suit from the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, version Spider-man 2099, jumping in the air and next is shots of Vision (Paul Bettany) behind bars, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky with the Wakandan Army before a big reveal of Chris Evan’s bearded Captain America/Steve Rogers.

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is revealed as a blonde, Iron Man’s new armor is very cool, sleek and the Hulkbuster armor is back during a montage of shots.

“I’m sorry Tony,” Peter Parker says behind tears with Iron Man holding his head, obviously very injured. Thanos grabs Thor’s head and squeezes.

Thanos, in the heat of battle with the Infinity Gauntlet on his hand, uses the power of the Purple and Blue stones to grab a moon, drags it toward the planet everyone is standing on. The debris starts to fly and… cut to title card.

Avengers: Infinity War also stars Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Benedict Wong (Wong), Dave Bautista (Drax), Sean Gunn (Rocket) Vin Diesel (Groot), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Winston Duke (Man-Ape) and Peter Dinklage and Terry Notary in unconfirmed roles.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4th, 2018.


As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
