Avengers: Infinity War will be upon us in just 23 days and the hype for the movie keeps increasing as it gets closer and closer. Infinity War will be the greatest character ensemble ever seen on the big screen and it will interweave all the stories told in the last 10 years, starting from Iron Man itself.
Since the build-up to this movie has been so fantastic, the anticipation for the movie is huge. It is expected to literally break the box office, and blow the minds of all the fans and critics at the same time. In fact, it broke records for pre-sales within six hours. The analysts and box office trackers believe that if all the hype surrounding the movie actually translates into the highest grossing movie of all times not just in comic book genre.
The plot of the movie revolves around Thanos’ quest to retrieve all the Infinity stones scattered all over the universe. He will bring his army of alien invaders and Black Order to Earth to steal six cosmic singularities – Power, Space, Mind, Time, Reality and Soul and assemble the all-powerful Infinity gauntlet that grants its user limitless powers to control fundamental forces of existence. He will literally have the powers to destroy half of the humanity at the snap of his fingers.
The Russos have described ‘Avengers Infinity War’ as a heist movie. Here is what they said:
“With “Infinity War,” the biggest new element to the movie is Thanos and the fact that he’s entering the storytelling in a very bold, strong way, to the degree that he’s almost one of the leads. We’ve shaped an interesting narrative around him that in some ways leans heavily on a heist film in the fact that he’s going after the infinity stones in a much bolder, successful way than he has in the past. The entire movie has that energy of the bad guy being one step ahead of the heroes. We looked at a lot of movies that had that heist-style energy to them, and that brought some inspiration”.
Since the digital marketing of the movie has really kicked in at full force every day something new keeps getting revealed about the movie. Ever since March began, we got to see new promo arts, photos and magazine covers being released almost every day, revealing almost all the characters of the movie along with other important aspects.
The new trailer for the movie sheds light on many new plot details but still, it kept the main story of the movie hidden. Recently, the Japanese and Chinese Posters were released for Avengers Infinity War as a part of the International marketing of the movie. Here’s the Japanese Poster:
Well, it does seem amazing as it portrays 17 Heroes and One Mad Titan with a totally new look, but it does not give us anything new on the part of the heroes as we have seen these incarnations of the heroes in other photos as well. The Chinese Poster, on the other hand, reveals something new and a lot of details for at least one of the heroes. Here, have a look at the Chinese poster:
Well, the overall poster is an extension of the Poster that came out with the latest trailer of the movie, as the characters stand in the same pose but are only placed differently, but if we focus closely at Spider-Man, this poster provides the best possible details for the Iron Spider suit that is expected to show up fully in motion in the upcoming movie. It is the most advanced suit designed by Stark Industries that Spiderman will don in Infinity War and become a full-time Avenger which he had always dreamt about.
Have a look at the close-up and you will see what I am talking about:
Here we can see the entire color pattern of the suit, which seemed to change with the lighting shown at it in the trailers, but the suit is actually Red, Black, and Gold instead of Red Blue and Gold. On the other hand, if we look at the back of Spidey, we can see the holdings out of which the Spider legs are going to extend. Many toys have hinted that these leg extensions will be detachable and come in handy and Spidey wishes to hit some far range targets.
This image also highlights the amazing new web shoots that Peter is going to get with this suit, and since this suit is closer to the look of Iron Man suggested by the name and the colour pattern, we can also see the suit having sources of energy similar to the arc reactor that Tony has in his Iron Man armours.
Spiderman is no longer fighting bad guys in his neighborhood or taking on the likes of Vulture, he is in the major leagues now and for that, he needed a major upgrade in the suit of armor, hopefully, Iron Spider will give him the tools to fight someone like Thanos and his Black order.
It will be really amazing to see how Avengers: Infinity War is going to handle the Iron Spider-suit, and along with it we will get to see many other characters fighting for screen time and space. Since this movie has the most amount of characters ever, it will not be possible to give all these characters a lot of screen time, some of these characters are really important for the movie but everyone will at least get a moment to shine. So let’s see how things go.
The cast of the movie is just phenomenal as it includes plethora of big stars in Hollywood such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Paul Betany, Paul Rudd, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Tessa Thompson, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Benedict Wong, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Gweneth Paltrow, Danai Gurira, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Samuel Jackson and Cobie Smulders.
Here’s the official synopsis of the movie as released by Marvel studios:
