If that’s not enough to get you hyped for the film, check out its synopsis:
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.
The internet has been an endless source of speculation regarding the film, which is currently set to potentially have 41 Marvel characters. There could also be some characters who don’t make it out after Avengers 4, of which Kevin Feige has said will be something new:
“This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man (on July 5, 2019) that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there.”
“There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018. The hype is real.
