Avengers Infinity War Trailer Breakdown

Back in Wakanda, the rest of the Avengers have their own trouble. Falcon is flying through the air with a bunch of Wakandan ships along with him. They’re heading to those structures in the distance. We’re not sure exactly what they are, but we’ll get another glimpse as to what’s going on over there a bit later in the trailer.

Black Panther and Captain America are riding together away from Wakanda and towards those structures. Whatever they are, that’s where the huge battle is going to be taking place between all our heroes and Thanos’ army of Outriders.

Joining the fight is none other than a new version of the Hulkbuster armor. But as the LEGO sets keyed us into a little while back, it’s not Tony Stark inside the suit this time, but rather Bruce Banner. Also, look to the sky and you’ll see Falcon flying with what is likely War Machine by his side. However, the streak that flies by appears to have a red color to it, so maybe it’s Iron Man making a return to Earth after the fight on Titan didn’t go so well.

Hey, don’t forget Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is in this movie too. Even though he was without his cape for most of Thor: Ragnarok, it looks like he’s going to get it back for Infinity War. His long locks may be gone, but Thor definitely needs a cape for batter.

Avengers Infinity War Trailer Breakdown - Rocket Raccoon

Rocket Raccoon appears to be in the same place as Thor as this shot, or at least that’s what the aesthetic of each setting hints at. But Rocket could easily be on Knowhere in this shot too, since that setting also looked dark as well. We do know that Rocket is with Thor on his quest to get a new weapon in his hand after Mjolnir was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok.

Speaking of which, it looks like that’s exactly what Thor is trying to do in this scene. We’re not sure what he’s doing with his lightning here, but there doesn’t appear to be a new weapon in his hand just yet. Then again, they could have removed it with visual effects to avoid spoiling it in the trailer.

The lightning is a little too bright for teen Groot to handle, which is kind of funny since he’s so used to looking at his mobile device all the time and should be used to it by now. During this sequence we also hear a voice we haven’t before saying, “The end is near.” It’s not Josh Brolin as Thanos, but it’s likely a member of the Black Order.

In another part of the universe, the Q-Ship is crashing down on Titan. Are Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange on board? Also, what’s that starfish-like shaped structure in the background. Is that a ship? If so, whose ship is it?

Avengers Infinity War Trailer Breakdown - Thanos

Here’s another shot of Thanos in his full armor. But that’s not any location we’ve seen before on Earth. At first glance, you might think it’s Asgard, but we know that entire place got destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok. Perhaps this is Titan before it ended up getting destroyed. At the very least, it’s easy to see this is a flashback to the past, because we see him looking down at a little head of colorful hair and then…

We see him embracing a little green hand and then turning and walking with this little girl, who undoubtedly must be his adopted daughter Gamora. It looks like there’s smoke or dust in the background, so maybe this isn’t Titan, but another planet Thanos brought destruction to – maybe even Gamora’s home planet. Perhaps this is where he took her away from her home and trained her to be a weapon.

Anthony and Joe Russo have said some of our favorite characters won’t come out of this alive, and in this shot things don’t look too hot for Thor. Thanos is squeezing his head and it’s clearly pretty painful, even for the god of thunder. Thor still has his eyepatch though, so this is likely from early in the movie, probably picking up where the Thor: Ragnarok mid-credits scene left off. Merchandise has shown Thor with his eye back at some point, so we know he lives through his first confrontation with Thanos, just like Bruce Banner, who is the one who has to tell everyone back on Earth about him.

Avengers Infinity War Trailer Breakdown - Loki and Black Order

However, one Thor character who might not be so lucky to come out of this scene alive is Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Here he stands with all four members of Thanos’ Black Order (it’s the first time we’ve seen them all so clearly in footage). He offers up the Cosmic Cube to Thanos after he secretly stole it from Odin’s vault in Thor: Ragnarok. Surely Thanos won’t be too happy with Loki after he failed to carry out the plan he originally executed in The Avengers, and if Thanos is going to show that no character is off limits for death, killing Loki would send that message loud and clear early on.

Here’s Thanos standing with the Cosmic Cube, which he promptly smashes to take the Space Stone (blue) inside of it and place it on the Infinity Gauntlet. This will be the second Infinity Stone he collects since see him placing it on the metal glove with the Power Stone (purple) already in place.
