The First Footage From Avengers: Infinity War Blows Away Even Your Wildest Expectations

Marvel Studios just showed a huge chunk of footage from Avengers: Infinity War at the D23 Expo and there almost aren't words for it. But we're going to try.

The footage began with probably a two-minute intro of footage from the first several movies, all focusing on the Infinity Stones we've seen so far. Then, the Marvel Studios logo, and on to the new stuff.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are flying around. "Put on your mean faces," Star-Lord says, because he expects something nasty. There has been crazy destruction, and then a body smashes up against their ship. "Get it away," Rocket says. They bring the body in and it's Thor. (Spoilers for Ragnarok, we guess?) Mantis wakes him up and Thor jumps up and exclaims "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 is moving around some cars or something and a female voiceover says "Death follows him like a shadow." Loki emerges and presents the Tesseract to someone who is taller than him.

Cut to Queens and the hairs on the arm of a young Peter Parker stand up on end. He turns around in fear and we see a ship flying toward a planet we assume is Earth. "We have one advantage," Tony Stark says. "He's coming to us." As the ship crashes, we see Mantis, Iron Man, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange, and a few others characters in total shock.

"Fun really isn't something one considers when balancing the universe," a voice says. Gamora 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.

A fight begins. Doctor Strange is putting down platforms and Star-Lord is jumping off them, shooting his guns. Cut to Spider-Man, in his new suit revealed at the end of Homecoming, jumping through the air. A shot of Vision behind bars. A shot of a Wakandan army which includes Bucky. Captain America comes out of shadows with a full beard. Black Widow is shown with blonde hair. Iron Man has new, very sleek armour. Someone is using the Hulkbuster armour. Just a huge montage of shots.

Peter Parker is on the ground very hurt. "I'm sorry Tony," he says behind tears with Iron Man holding his head. Thanos grabs Thor's head and squeezes. Then Thanos, in the heat of battle with the Infinity Gauntlet on his hand, uses the power of the two stones he has (Purple and Blue, I think) to grab a moon. He starts to drag it toward whatever planet everyone is standing on. The debris starts to fly and... cut to title card.

    sorry but the plot of these marvel avengers movies seems to be aimed at kids off the heads on ritalin.

    The actor dialog sounds like kids in a playground

    About the only thing that works if the SFX which makes these movies more of a fairground ride aimed at idiots

      id rather this than more adam sandler movies, or twilight, or hunger games.

      Nothing wrong with watching total fantasy, kids type movies, one could argue incredibiles was amied at kids too, but many adults had total fun with that movie. If you dont like it, fine, dont go, but for those of us that like to excape into a child like fantasy , I say have at it. too much murder, dark, crap movies these days, and not enough "fun". More fun please!

      If it's not your genre then don't watch it, you do have a choice you know.
      My personal genre is SciFi, but I don't mind a bit of childish fun. My only real issue with Super Hero movies is that there's just too many of them. The market is fully saturated now and they need to give people some breathing room.

        Don't see an issue here. It's not like every movie that comes out is a superhero movie. Plenty of other movies to go and see.

          Yeah, there is an awful lot of these "Super Hero" movies out now, coming out soon and in the future. A bit of a break between them wouldn't be a bad thing.

            But what about the people that enjoy superhero movies and want them to come out as often as they do?
            People who don't like it can always stop watching them for a year or two.

      MCU movies are targeted at all audiences. There is enough in them for everyone to enjoy.

      Shit guys! It's the fun police come to break up the party! I bet he only ever watches sooper serial movies because light hearted fun ones are 'for idiots'.

        Look at all these people getting mad just because one guy has an opinion they they don't like, boo hoo. smh.

          Look at you mck04 getting mad that made fun of that other guy. Do you not like my opinion, well boo hoo. smh.
