Marvel has released the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Marvel blockbuster The Avengers: Infinity War. Infinity War is the beginning of the end for the first major story arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will show the mad titan Thanos (Josh Brolin), who first appeared in 2012’s The Avengers, attempting to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in order to take over the galaxy. Fighting back will be every Marvel hero we’ve seen so far, starting in 2008’s Iron Man and going all the way up through the yet-to-be-released Black Panther.
The Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars many Marvel fan favourites like Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Mark Ruffalo, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen and Zoe Saldana among so many others. The films hits theatres on May 4, 2018. Take a look at the trailer below:
Ever since Bruce Banner himself, Mark Ruffalo leaked the news that Vanity Fair was holding a secret photo shoot with several stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve been eager to see the final product. Admittedly, it wasn’t the photo shoot we were hoping for, but it is still fantastic nonetheless!
Vanity Fair — After a decade of unprecedented success, Marvel Studios is at a pivotal moment: the looming farewell to some of its founding superheroes, and the rise of a new generation. Kevin Feige, the creative force behind the $13 billion franchise and a slew of Marvel stars, discusses its precarious beginnings, stumbles, and ever-expanding empire.

The Infinity Stones have become very important to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the build up to Avengers: Infinity War, but fans aren’t alone in their confusion about the all-important cosmic remnants. Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth doesn’t get it, either.
During a set visit the actor said that while Thor: Ragnarok connects to Avengers: Infinity War, they didn’t want to get too stuck dealing with the Infinity Stones.
“We didn’t wanna get bogged down in Infinity Stones and da-da-da-da, because I don’t even understand that stuff a lot of the time,” Hemsworth said.
“Without giving anything away [Thor: Ragnarok] definitely bleeds nicely into [Avengers: Infinity War,] as they all tend to do,” Hemsworth explained. “This being called Ragnarok, which everyone knows what that means, it obviously is gonna effect the larger universe.”
Hemsworth not having a full understanding of the Infinity Stones is humorous largely because of how involved with trying to understand them Thor is. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor left Earth to find out more about the mysterious objects of Thanos’ desire. However, even with Hemsworth being confused about the Stones, the events of Thor: Ragnarok will be very important to the next Avengers installment even though the actor stops short of revealing if we’ll see the Soul Stone anytime soon.

Disney-Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok dominated social media buzz with an impressive 264,000 new conversations last week, according to media-measurement firm ComScore and its PreAct service.
Marvel released a new full trailer featuring both Thor and Hulk at the Marvel showcase at San Diego Comic-Con on July 22. Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled for release on November 3rd.
“Hunt for the Wilderpeople” helmer Taika Waititi directed the third standalone Thor movie, which seems to be quirkier and more offbeat than the first two, and is already drawing comparisons to “Guardians of the Galaxy.” “Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleton, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and Anthony Hopkins.
Disney-Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War generated 90,000 new conversations following the unveiling of a new poster at the Marvel showcase at Comic-Con on July 22, which fans have recorded on their phones and leaked the footage. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 18, 2018. (Source)
It’s that time of year when the biggest studios bring actors, directors and writers from their most anticipated blockbusters to tens of thousands of fans at San Diego Comic-Con.
None are as prominent as Marvel Studios. Marvel Entertainment, in general, has always dominated SDCC, but it’s the company’s studio division that has reinvigorated fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This year should be the same.
The question is what Marvel Studios plans to bring to SDCC. Speculation?
The Avengers: Infinity War | D23 attendees saw the first Infinity War trailer, and while there’s a very good chance it will be shown again to Hall H attendees at SDCC, don’t expect it to go online anytime soon. Marvel is notorious for not publishing its trailers online, instead keeping them exclusive to conventions.
Thor: Ragnarok | Don’t expect Ragnarok to take up much of Marvel’s panel as the release is right around the corner, so it doesn’t need as much hyping up as other projects. However, there will be a “Thor: Ragnarok” SDCC presence — Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and maybe even Jeff Goldblum will all be on hand.
Fans can also expect Captain Marvel, Black Panther and possibly Antman and the Wasp goodies.
Yesterday, Chris joined Marvel’s Kevin Feige onstage during the D23 Expo to share an exclusive trailer of Avengers: Infinity War alongside other Marvel Cinematic Universe favorites, like Dave Bautista, Paul Bettany, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Don Cheadle, Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Karen Gillan, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, Pom Klementieff, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, and co-director Joe Russo.

With Avengers: Infinity War set to go into production early in the New Year, a casting call has arrived online which claims to offer up details of the main cast for the Marvel superhero epic.
Now, it should be noted that this is not official from Marvel, and casting calls are often inaccurate; this could just be a case of the agency taking a guess based on who they expect to appear in the film – so any Spider-Man or Falcon fans out there, don’t start panicking just yet!

Josh Brolin as Thanos
Chris Pratt as Star-Lord
Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier
Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange

Disney has confirmed that it will make only one Avengers: Infinity movie rather than the two it had announced previously.
Disney said on Friday that it still plans to release Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as planned on May 4, 2018. But what was slated to be the second part in that story, Avengers: Infinity War Part II, has now been renamed as an Untitled Avengers project while retaining the May 3, 2019 release date.
The two “Infinity War” movies were announced together in October, 2014, with both directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Two months ago, the Russo brothers told the Uproxx site that the third and fourth Avengers were being retitled in part to clarify that the films would be two separate films rather than one large film split in half.
Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner starred in both movies. Downey and Renner have been confirmed to appear in “Infinity Wars.” (Source)
