Hill, Sebastian Stan as Buck Barnes/Winter Soldier, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Benedict Wong as Wong and Letitia Wright as Shuri.

The trailer opens with Gamora, Thanos’ daughter, issuing a warning. “We have one advantage: He’s coming to us,” Iron Man responds. “We

have what Thanos wants—so that’s what we use.”


After the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, the heroes are “fractured at the start of the movie. It was always the intent, in a

larger arc, to split the Avengers up before the greatest threat they’ve ever seen,” co-director Joe Russo recently told Entertainment

Weekly. “Thanos is a virtually indestructible character, which makes him an extremely difficult character to fight.”

 

Downey, who launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 with Iron Man, promised a spectacular climax in Infinity War. “Believe me,

I’m tired of every movie, you know, ‘It’s the end! It’s Armageddon! It’s the be-all, end-all, forever!’ And then it’s…not. This one actually

is,” Downey told the magazine with a laugh. “They’re not kidding. This is a heads-will-roll scenario.”

 

“The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us, on large part because you don’t see it that often in this

particular genre,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige added. With this film, and its 2019 sequel, “We’re going to pull out the stops, and

stop exploring conventions, and look to do stuff where we go, ‘Oh, but if we do that, that’s very, very definitive,'” Downey said. “Well,

great, let’s get definitive for a change! We’re like a family now. Ten years later, we’re hanging out and having lunch, and kind of wondering

when the draft is going to come in. Which one of us bites it and when?” At least some of the character will not survive, as screenwriter

Stephen McFeely said, “It’s safe to say we will say farewell to people.”

But before then, the heroes must unite to stop Thanos.

“He’s from a planet called Titan that’s no longer inhabited because of things that he thought he could help prevent, and he was not allowed

to do that. What he feared most happened, and the planet and everybody on it basically went extinct. He vowed not to let that happen

again. He thinks he sees the universe going down the tubes. He thinks he sees life expanding outward unchecked,” Feige explained. “That

will bring ruin, he believes, to the universe and to that life.”

 

In short, Thanos wants to obliterate half the universe. “That’s either genius or horrific, depending on your point of view, and most of our

point of views say it’s pretty horrific,” Feige said. To accomplish his goal, Thanos needs to acquire the six Infinity Stones and combine them

into one gauntlet. “He’s on a hunt. We’re using a bit of a ’90s heist genre component,” Russo teased. “Thanos is on a smash-and-grab, and

everybody’s trying to catch up the whole movie.”

 

Sadly for the Avengers and their allies, it shouldn’t be hard for Thanos to find the Infinity Stones: The Collector has the red Reality Stone,

Doctor Strange has the green Time Stone, Loki has the blue Space Stone, the Nova Corps has the purple Power Stone and Vision has the

yellow Mind Stone. “The end is near. When I’m done, half of humanity will still exist—perfectly balanced, as all things should be,” Thanos

says in the new trailer. “I hope they remember you.”
