D23 2017: Footage From AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Blows Everyone Away!
Our lord and savior Kevin Feige took the stage at this year’s D23 Expo for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War.
Then, in a surprise for all that brought the house down, they announced a massive display of Marvel heroes for including Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Paul Bettany (Vision) , Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Karen Gillen (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Sebastian Stan ( Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon) , Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Mark Ruffalo ( Hulk) , Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and the King of Con himself , Robert Downey Jr along with one half of the director duo Joe Russo.
To top it all off, the thrilled fans got an exclusive early look at footage from the movie, introduced by Joe Russo.
A montage of the past ten years was played showing some pivotal moments in the MCU history and then went directly into the Infinity War footage ….
I’ll do my best to break down and remember what I saw because there was a lot and it went fast….
- GOTG team flying through debris and Thor hits their windshield. Rocket says “hit the wipers hit the wipers “
- Thor wakes up on their ship and says “who the hell are you guys”
- Loki with a “cosmic cube”
- Thanks with the gauntlet and I believe it had 2-3 Infinity stones in it
- Hulkbuster armor shows up
- Spider-Man with a new costume doing a flip. His costume has some black accent to it. He does a flip at some point and lands on some giant sphere
- Peter Parker sitting on a bus and it appears his slider sense starts tot uncle and he looks back at something
- Captain America has a beard and Black Widow is blonde ( maybe a result of them being fugitives?)
- Thanos punching Iron Man and fighting Avengers
Needless to say the place went bonkers. Just when you think it can’t get bigger it has and not just in cast size. This movie looks epic and now I have to go change my shorts.
Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters May 4, 2018.
