AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Teaser Trailer Breakdown!

“Get this man a shield!” The battle for the Infinity Stones has finally come to Earth in the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War. And if fans were expecting a simple rehash of the footage that debuted last summer then they were probably very happy to see a much broader look at the beginning of the end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Today’s Nerdist News is giving you a shot-by-shot breakdown of the Infinity War trailer and unpacking what we know so far.

Join host and the lost member of the Infinity Watch, Jessica Chobot, as she runs down all of the big moments from the Avengers’ next adventure. And there’s nothing we love more than a literal callback! It’s no coincidence Tony Stark still has the flip phone that Captain America gave him at the end of Civil War. If there was ever a time to bring in the Secret Avengers, it’s now!

It’s good to see that Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda will apparently be playing bigger roles than we realized in this film, just a few months after Panther’s solo flick. That shot of Cap’s renegade Avengers running alongside Black Panther and his army already seems destined to be one of the most memorable shots in the movie. But this trailer was full of scenes like that, and we’re incredibly excited to see it all come together.

While the natural assumption was that Infinity War would largely adapt the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, it seems to be borrowing a lot from Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers, including the Black Order/Children of Thanos. We got a glimpse of Proxima Midnight as she seems to take on a bearded Captain America, and she’s not the only one of Thanos’ children who can give Gamora or Nebula a run for their money. Everything about this movie looks epic, and we’re dying to see more.

That’s right, the Guardians of the Galaxy are here! But if Thanos is this difficult to stop with just two Infinity Stones, then how much more powerful can he get before he has them all? We’ll find out when Infinity War opens on May 4, 2018.
