Avengers: Infinity War is set to be an onscreen epic unlike any other. With promotional materials for the film beginning to be released, fans are learning more and more about the upcoming Marvel Studios film.
That’s especially true for a new poster, which was unveiled during today’s San Diego Comic-Con. While segments of the poster have been revealed throughout the weekend, the newest portion has been revealed. You can check it out below.

The poster previews quite a lot about the film – particularly with regards to a few established MCU characters. Click through to see the biggest revelations, and what they could mean for Infinity War.
This story is developing…
Bearded Cap – After walking away from the Avengers in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) appears to be front and center for Infinity War. And when The First Avenger helps the team take on the mad titan Thanos, he will do so in a drastically new look.
Yes, we now have our first look at Captain America’s full beard. It’s unclear what significance the beard will have on Steve’s storyline, although it’s safe to assume it will have something to do with his fugitive status. Either way, it’s a new change for the iconic hero – one of several that will apparently occur for Infinity War’s cast of characters. Which brings us to…
Blonde Black Widow – Standing next to Steve on the Infinity War poster is Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). The character sports an appearance quite unlike any of her previous MCU outings, with the super-spy’s hair is an almost silver shade of blonde.
Black Widow’s new hair color was first revealed during the D23 screening of Infinity War’s teaser trailer. We recently broke down what Natasha’s change in appearance could mean, with everything from trouble with the law to a nod to the second Black Widow, Yelena Belova, currently a possibility.
Teenage Groot – Baby Groot pulled on audience’s heartstrings during this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But when the character returns to the screen in Avengers: Infinity War, he is set to have an entirely new form – one that the poster just gave us a first look at.
Judging by the poster, it appears that Groot (Vin Diesel) will be relatively close to his ‘tween’ form, which was seen in a Vol. 2 post credit scene. Since he’s clearly smaller than the seemingly-adult appearance he had in the first Guardians film, there’s a good chance the Infinity War version is essentially ‘teenage’ Groot. Of course, there is a chance he could be older, as Diesel recently revealed that Groot’s greatest form has yet to be seen onsceen.
