Disney and Marvel are bringing plenty to show at their annual D23 Expo, including some brand new footage from the anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.
“Avengers tower comes into frame. Clips from The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3 play.”
Then the new footage begins.
“‘We are arriving,’ Mantis said to the Guardians. Teenage Groot in a seat. They describe this place as ‘dangerous.’ The body of Thor lands on their windshield. His hair is short. Rocket is startled. Mantis wakes him up using her powers. Thor is startled. All of the Guardians look at him, prompting him to ask who they are. The ship zips through the cosmos. Elsewhere, Wanda dodges some white energy, and it breaks a truck. Somewhere else, Loki stands in ruin, presenting the Tesseract to someone. Peter’s Spider-Sense takes off as he rides a bus. Tony prepares for battle. He is in space with the Guardians.
“‘Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,’ Thanos said. ‘This does put a smile on my face.’ Gamora looks on, terrified. The Guardians observe ruin in many places across Earth and the cosmos. Thanos warps into this new world. Star-Lord battles him. Strange battles him. Spider-man, in his new suit, battles him. Winter Soldier battles on Earth. Wakanda readies to defend their territory. Cap steps out of the shadows, bearded, with longer hair. Hulkbuster fights.
“Peter looks up at Tony, laying down with his mask off, fighting tears with Tony’s hand behind his head, and says, ‘I’m sorry, Tony.’
“Black Panther fights an Outrider, appearing as it did Infinity. Thor’s head is squeezed by Thanos. Thanos pummels Iron Man in a fight. The Guardians are all defeated. Thanos has assembled the Infinity Gauntlet. He throws a moon at an entire planet.”
As you can see by the first footage, Infinity War is going to be quite epic, and will include just about everyone in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. That includes Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland, who described it as bigger than anyone can fathom.
“It needs no teasing,” Holland said to the Toronto Sun. “That movie literally needs no teasing. It’s going to be the biggest movie of all time. Believe me; no one is ready for that movie. I don’t know anything about it or what it’s about.”
In addition to Spider-Man, Infinity War will also bring in Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Thor, Hulk, and many more.
