Avengers: Infinity War will be upon us in just 13 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.
This will be the greatest comic book spectacle that we have ever seen, never before has any studio attempted an ensemble movie of this size and scale. There will be around 76 comic book characters of relevance, out of which almost half of them are going to be superheroes. But some of them will be really important to the movie, while others may have a smaller role. The recent trailer of the movie showed us tonnes of new footage without actually revealing the plot of the movie. Also, it left a lot of questions in our mind as well.
The marketing of the movie has been going at crazy speeds since we are so close to the movie. New trailers, clips, spots, posters, promo arts, images and covers get released every day. Now, new posters and a promo art have also made their way to the internet. Here’s the first one, have a look.
I have to say, that this one is the best there is till now, as all 23 heroes are placed very well, and above everyone is the Godfather of MCU, Downey’s character Iron Man shining brightly from the front. The second poster is actually similar to the Chinese Poster that was released a while ago, but this time, it is in English. Have a look.
This poster actually features fewer heroes as there are only 18 of those present here, because Vision and Scarlet Witch are not present here, and the three side characters from solo superhero flicks, Wong, Okoye, and Shuri are also absent. Instead of these 5, the most amount of space is taken by the Mad Titan, Thanos! Along with these 2 posters, there is this promo art that has also surfaced. Take a look at it:
This Promo Art is actually an advertisement for Hot Toys and features several of Marvel’s most popular heroes like Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor (sans Ragnarok eye patch), Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Gamora, Black Widow, Black Panther, and Captain America who all are ready for battle.
There are so many characters in this movie, so it would be easy to imagine that all these heroes are going to fight for significant screen time along with battling Thanos. Some heroes may turn out important in this movie while some may have more importance in Avengers 4. According to director Joe Russo, the hero who will be the most important one having the most amount of screen time will surprisingly be Thor. Apart from Thanos, The God of Thunder will have the most important story arc. Here’s what Joe Russo said about this:
“Interestingly enough, I’ll start out by saying Thanos, even though he’s not a character that had a huge preexisting story in the Marvel universe. He was a threat but he was not developed in any way up to this point. Thanos has an incredible amount of screen time in this film, in a lot of ways I would say it’s his movie. Our job when we make these films — and what we feel is important to us — is to surprise the audience. We wanted to tell a story that they weren’t expecting, and the story is told from the point of view of a villain, which I think is also really unique and risky for a commercial film that will surprise the audience. I think this is a market where the audience really enjoys innovation and disruption, and we want to do something innovative in this space. So I think Thanos has an incredible amount of screen time, and I think you’ll find that Thor has a really interesting arc in the film. He hasn’t been at the forefront of other Avengers movies but he certainly has a very important role in this film. So I’ll say, Thanos and Thor.”
So, Avengers: Infinity War will blow us all away on April 27. Here is the Synopsis of the movie:
“As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain”.
