With the hype train for Infinity War in full swing, Marvel is hard at work to keep the fans brewing at every doorstep. To that end, they have already released several extended video clips, additional hero footage and several other promos and TV Spot trailers to showcase just how awesome Infinity War is going to be. Infinity War is a movie 10 years in the making.
The Hype train must be as equally gigantic and worth every penny Marvel has poured into it. Marvel’s advertising campaign for Infinity War is already in full swing. After releasing several posters and promotional videos, they have now released yet another Marvel Infinity War advertisement. And believe us when we say this, this is the coolest Marvel Ad EVER!!!
The World needs to watch this. That is what Marvel is aiming for. Infinity War’s marketing campaign is so vast and so strong that everyone will be forced to pay attention. Marvel’s marketing campaign for their most ambitious project has cost more than 150 Million Dollars if rumors are to be trusted.
In the coming days, expect big brands like Coca-Cola, Ziploc, and Quicken Loans to start featuring the Avengers in their own services and products. In the previous week, we saw Marvel releasing a video clip showing Spider-Man springing into action in Infinity War. Steve and Bucky are also reunited in one of their promotional campaigns for the movie.
There are also rumors circulating that one of the promotional ads finally features the location of the Soul Stone! The creative team at Marvel is doing a commendable job to keep their brainchild at the forefront of all news.
A Japanese Newspaper company may have already won the best Marvel Advertisement poster as of now. First posted by Instagram user roaring boar, this newspaper ad takes the cake and could be considered the mother of all Infinity War Ads. The Picture shows Tony Stark standing in awe and looking at something while Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet rip open through the center-front of the newspaper age as if breaking the fourth wall. To be honest, the ad carries quite the punch (pun intended).
Here is the ad we are talking about:
This ad spells a certain amount of imminent threat to all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It literally means all things will be coming to an end, whether you want them to or not. Avengers: Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are of a similar opinion. They wrote the story to make Thanos looks like the antithesis of everything the Marvel Heroes represent. He is the End. And he is bringing with him Armageddon, the end of days. Thanos punching his way into everyone’s view is certainly an interesting way to make that known to everyone else watching. Thanos is here to ‘balance the universe’ and he will be doing it while everyone watched him helplessly.
Will Thanos live up to the hype? Marvel has recently produced a flurry of well received and acclaimed villains, case in point Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue. While Klaue’s role was small in Black Panther, he did a splendid job of grabbing everyone’s attention with his maniacal laugh and oddball evil super villain attitude.
Erik Killmonger, on the other hand, was everything the fans had hoped for. He was not a hero. He was not a villain. He was something in between. He wanted to do good but turning bad. Can we blame him for it? No. Is he not responsible for his actions? Yes. That is what makes him so intriguing. Everyone can relate to him as he is too interesting to be ignored as just another villain of the day.
Thanos is a villain of the highest order in the comics and he has been showcased several times in the MCU. If Marvel does not do justice to the Mad Titan (like they haven’t with a lot of other well known MCU villains), the fans will be easily pissed off.
Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27th, 2018. The official film synopsis reads:
“Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.”
