Marvel releases trailer and poster for 'Avengers: Infinity War'

As hinted at by the filmmakers, it does seem that Thanos has an air of altruism about him in this interpretation, and I'm interested to see just how much we'll sympathize with him.

Avengers: Infinity War, which Hawkeye is absolutely a part of, will be released on April 27. Sweeping shots of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther, featuring an exiled Captain America. Marvel Studios have been making trailers, and this is the latest one of them. While you patiently wait for opening day, find out what the Russo brothers had to say about the movie serving as the culmination of all 18 previous MCU films and putting the Avengers through their "final test."

Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Incredible Hulk, has warned fans that Infinity War is going to be an emotional ride. More importantly, though, this trailer finally gives a flavor of what kind of humor we can expect when alpha dogs like Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) have to work together on a mission.

Tickets for that massive AMC marathon aren't on sale quite yet, but if you've got nothing to do for a day and a half, it might be worth checking out.

There is that sense of foreboding as Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently said that Infinity War may see the death of a major character but there is a lot of humour to offset the mood.

Thor, Doctor Strange, Iron Man and Captain America all appeared to be in trouble - so who will make it out alive? Superheroes nearly always earn some nominations and even take home statues in technical categories (which are, make no mistake, prestigious, but not the sort of thing average at-home viewers remember like Best Picture), but the major categories of the night tend to leave them out. Fans have been speculating for months on end about the exit of these characters and one way to do it would be to kill them off. "So let me do the plan and that way, it might be really good". Massive films that considering their massive scope, have been left in the hands of the relatively small name directors Antony and Joe Russo.
