The second trailer of “Avengers: Infinity War” came out last Friday and everyone on social media was excited over the impressive moments. So much is happening from Thanos‘ appearance to Iron Man blasting into space with a rocket from his feet. Even showing the interaction of different superheroes in one screen is history in the making for Marvel. They go up against a great villain who is unbelievably strong, smart and evil. There is so much pressure for this movie to be successful on the big screen. It also shows that the expectations are high for not just the critics, but the fans as well.
Over 10 years of Marvel films has led to the ultimate battle between the Avengers and Thanos. Post-credits scenes from past films have hinted on what it’s leading up to. The infinity stones have been shown other than the soul stone, which is possibly hidden in Wakanda. All 22 superheroes are in this fight to save the universe from totally annihilation. This has been the concept in a few superhero films such as “X-Men: Apocalypse, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Justice League.” While Age of Ultron had success in capturing the feeling of goosebumps and a “oh my goodness” moment, the other ones failed. No feeling of an actual problem affecting countless lives since the heroes have it under control.
For “Avengers: Infinity War,” that feeling of actually losing against Thanos and dying in battle can happen. They never faced a villain who will do whatever it takes in destroying the universe. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have done a great job in humanize these Marvel films, and this upcoming one will do the same. Every Marvel fan wants it to be the greatest blockbuster film of this generation. Heck even critics are hoping that it’s the best film they ever saw. But if it falls flat because of too many characters or not enough background information about Thanos, expect a lot of disappointing fans wanting their money back.
Let’s see if it lives up to the hype on Apr. 27. Watch the second trailer below:
