One of the most anticipated comic book films of all time, Avengers: Infinity War, will finally hit theaters next year, and one thing that fans are also eagerly awaiting is the release of the first trailer.
In a recent interview, Marvel’s Kevin Feige was asked about when we could potentially see it, and here’s what he had to say:
“It’s a good question. I’m not sure. I think it would be late summer, early, mid fall? Ragnarok, probably.”
Per the usual, Feige and Marvel have kept things secretive.
He also revealed this week what most Marvel fans have feared for some time now. Infinity War will be the end of some key Avengers:
“We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”
One thing we won’t be seeing in the Infinity War trailer? Characters from the Marvel Television Universe, as Feige just recently had this to say about that possibility:
“Maybe someday. No plans right now. Maybe someday, but we have a lot of characters in the MCU, and one of the things that is so special about those characters on the Netflix shows is their dynamic together. They are all combining to become The Defenders later this year and are doing their own thing.”
Falcon actor Anthony Mackie offered much less hope than Feige in his response to the question last March:
“Different universes, different worlds, different companies, different designs. Kevin Feige is very specific about how he wants the Marvel Universe to be seen in the film world. It wouldn’t work. It wouldn’t work at all.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4th, 2018.
The film is set to star Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
