We’ve been waiting for Avengers: Infinty War even before Captain America: Civil War (which was low-key Avengers movie, no pun intended, but I guess Thor would’ve been pissed). Guess who decided to sign up for #teamBeardGang? None other than good ol’ Captain America. It’s no secret that I’ve been a Marvel over DC fan now for the longest. This has to be the biggest Marvel movie ever made. I’m guessing that the budget was at least US$500 million (it has to be, with all those A-list characters). Let’s talk about the trailer and possible plot, shall we?
From the comics The Infinity War is all where all the characters, DIED! So is everyone going to die? Not sure yet but from the trailer we do know for sure who dies. J.A.R.V.I.S is living his life now as a human and even finds loves *insert ahhhh sound here*. The honeymoon is shortlived when big bad Thanos comes for the infinty stone that is proudly displayed on his forehead (the mind stone which is paramount to his very existence).
We see a broken Tony Stark here (which is a rare sight) as the world around him seems to unravel. We also see poor Spidey getting choke-slammed by Thanos. The Hulk crash lands in Dr. Strange’s neighbourhood, continuing the events from Thor: Ragnok.
Like what happened in Logan this looks like this generation of Marvel superheroes will be taking their last rodeo. I say Iron Man and Captain America are going to die. This looks like it’s going to be a long part 1 movie (c’mon it was already so long that they had to split the storyline into two movies). Knowing Marvel Studios they want to pull out all the stops and make the most mind-blowing movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.
At guess who decides to make an appearance at the every end to free Thor (who is now the new Odin, one-eyed tings yeah), the Guardians of the Galaxy. Had me worried for a second there.
Hold up, back to #teamBeardGang newest recruit. Apparently he has dropped his moniker Captain America to go by his government name Steve Rodgers (that explains the beard and the dark costume I guess). Him dropping the shield at the end of Captain America: Civil War was a hint at that.
Missing from the trailer/movie were Ant-Man and Wasp (who I’m guessing will appear in the Infinity War Part 2 (which is yet to get an official name yet).
Below is the description of the infinity stones that Thanos is looking for. Could the Soul Stone be in Wakanda?
If you’re puzzled about the Infinity Stones, this might help! Movies they’re featured in, their containment devices, and who has them now. pic.twitter.com/gLquJlbzIT

In January 2018, Marvel Comics will publish a two-issue prequel comic titled Avengers: Infinity War Prelude, which will serve as a bridge between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
The 4th of May 2018 can’t get here any sooner.
