I guess I don’t have to tell you that the Avengers Infinity War Trailer is here. Thanos has come knocking on Earth’s Doors and to claim his rightful place as the greatest and fiercest evil the Avengers have ever faced, both in Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But it won’t be a goody two shoes tale where the heroes defeat the alien army, repel back the invasion and have shawarma in the post-credits.
The Infinity Gauntlet saga of the movies was especially brutal. The writers went to great lengths to ensure that the heroes who the fans thought indestructible and invincible up until then, would die a quick but brutal death. Marvel’s The Infinity Gauntlet was the first issue that truly made the revered heroes vulnerable, their deaths happened within seconds.
No one came close to threatening the fans hope of the good guys succeeding look so bleak. It was a milestone in Comic Book History.
If the MCU could give us even half of that action in Infinity War, consider yourself lucky. But that’s not all. If the MCU decides to stick to the comic books, there will be death. A lot of Death. Blood of our own beloved heroes will be smeared across the universe.
His odds of survival are definitely better than most. He is Tony Stark for crying out loud. But RDJ had reportedly been in talks with the Marvel Studios about letting go off the mantle of the Iron Man. Maybe after this movie, Tony Stark is no more Iron Man. Maybe he is living the quiet billionaire life in the New York suburbs or….. he is dead.
The God of Mischief has chiseled his way out of almost every situation. All he needs is one single golden opportunity to wager safe passage out of life-threatening scenarios. In the trailer, Loki can be seen offering up the Tesseract aka the Space gem to someone. Could it be Thanos? Will Loki outsmart the Mad Titan or will Thanos finally send Loki off to Valhalla?
