Earlier today, we were given the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, and it definitely delivered. At this point, it seems like fans would have paid to see the trailer. Each Marvel Cinematic Universe film is an event that can’t be missed, so it’s no surprise that the film that’s been planned for nearly a decade is so big.
Marvel has released a new synopsis for the film that will make fans even more excited – and worried:
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay. “Avengers: Infinity War” releases in U.S. theaters on May 4, 2018.
While it’s not certain if any key Marvel characters will die in Infinity War, it definitely seems to be the case with Avengers 4, which is said to be the end of the current MCU and the beginning of something new. Per Marvel’s Kevin Feige:
“There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
As Marvel has shown with their recent films, they’re not afraid to change things up. In this case, however, it sounds like this MCU era is coming to an end soon.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.
