Marvel Studios unleashed an absolutely epic trailer for Avengers: Infinity War this morning. With all the stunning visuals, and there are many, it is easy to overlook something as simple as a new synopsis. This verbiage is worth reading, however, for its sense of history, and life or death stakes.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Not every Avenger is going to make it out of Infinity War and Untitled Avengers alive. They won’t be able to “cut the wire” and some of them are going to have to lay down on it to save everyone else. On his own, Thanos is powerful to destroy several of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, but with the Infinity Stones, his lethal capabilities increase exponentially. Make sure you have at least a few Avengers in your Phase 3 deadpool.

Now, get back to watching that awesome trailer and while you’re at it, have a look at our Superhero News trailer reaction.

Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters May 4, 2018.
