Breaking Down Everything from the AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Trailer

Today Marvel finally ended our long national nightmare and gave us the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, and somehow it did the impossible and exceeded our insane expectations. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we shared our reactions to the intense, loaded teaser and broke down everything we saw–and didn’t see–in it, along with our biggest theories for what could happen.

Host Jessica Chobot was joined today by producer Jason Nguyen, Mothership writer Amy Vorpahl, and Nerdist editor Kyle Anderson, and they started with their one word reaction to what they saw. But which moment surprised them the most? Who were we most excited to see? Was it one of the older Avengers or one of the newer members of the team? How excited are we Spider-Man has his spidey sense? And do we think Vision is the character most likely to be killed by Thanos?

Speaking of the Mad Titan and his missing hat, was he threatening enough here? What did we make of Proxima Midnight and her spear-throwing skills? Could the movie end up having too many villains? And does Wakanda make sense as a locale for one of the film’s biggest battles?

Iron Man is also sporting the arc reactor in his chest here for the first time since Iron Man 3, does that mean Doctor Strange could introduce some good old-fashioned time travel in this film? Would we like to see that so it helps fix the timeline issues introduced by Spider-Man: Homecoming? Should he use it to age Groot up a few more years?

But what about Black Widow’s new wig? Is this her best ever? Do we prefer Cap with the beard or without? Does this trailer have us more hyped than we were before? Did it also get us more excited to see Black Panther?

But a new trailer also means new theories, like whether it could be Hulk himself in that Hulkbuster Armor, and the possibility Tony Stark will save Spider-Man by putting him in his suit and sending him to safety. Could Captain America end up with the Energy Shield to replace his old one? And might we see Thanos in that helicopter from his first comic book appearance?

As always we want you to tune in and be a part of the conversation with us every weekday at 1:00 p.m. PT when Nerdist News Talks Back airs live on our YouTube and Alpha channels. We might have waited forever for this trailer, but we still don’t get to see the movie until May, so help us pass the time by talking about it until then.

We still want to hear your thoughts on the trailer though and our reaction to it, so talk back to us in the comments below.
