Read This Recap Of Avengers: Infinity War Teaser From D23 Expo
Like many of you, I was not one of the lucky people to attend this years D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. If you’ve been following the many social media sites that have been doing coverage, you know a lot of details of upcoming projects were announced or teased. One of the most anticipated events there was for Avengers: Infinity War coming next year on May 4, 2018. As you might already know, fans who attended got to see a 5 minute teaser of the movie that many of us will have to wait and see later on in the year. Luckily, some nice folks who saw it recapped what happened during the teaser. Now we can all be almost as hyped as those who saw it until an official trailer is shown.
“The Guardians of the Galaxy are flying around. “Put on your mean faces,” Star-Lord says, because he expects something nasty. There has been crazy destruction, and then a body smashes up against their ship. “Get it away,” Rocket says. They bring the body in and it’s Thor. (Spoilers for Ragnarok, we guess?) Mantis wakes him up and Thor jumps up and exclaims “Who the hell are you guys?” Next we see the Guardians with Thor, flying to another planet, and when they arrive—again, it’s just massive destruction again. They all know something is very wrong.
Cut to Earth. Scarlet Witch is moving around some cars or something and a female voice over says “Death follows him like a shadow.”
Loki emerges and presents the Tesseract to someone who is taller than him.
Cut to Queens and the hairs on the arm of a young Peter Parker stand up on end. He turns around in fear and we see a ship flying toward a planet we assume is Earth. “We have one advantage,” Tony Stark says. “He’s coming to us.” As the ship crashes, we see Mantis, Iron Man, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange, and a few others characters in total shock. “Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,” a voice says. Gamora turns around in total horror. “But this puts a smile on my face.” Star-Lord: “Oh no.” And out of a black hole emerges the purple madman, Thanos. A fight begins. Doctor Strange is putting down platforms and Star-Lord is jumping off them, shooting his guns.
Cut to Spider-Man, in his new suit revealed at the end of Homecoming, jumping through the air.
A shot of Vision behind bars.
A shot of a Wakandan army which includes Bucky.
Captain America comes out of shadows with a full beard.
Black Widow is shown with blonde hair.
Iron Man has new, very sleek armor. Someone is using the Hulkbuster armor. Just a huge montage of shots. Peter Parker is on the ground very hurt. “I’m sorry Tony,” he says behind tears with Iron Man holding his head.
Thanos grabs Thor’s head and squeezes. Then Thanos, in the heat of battle with the Infinity Gauntlet on his hand, uses the power of the two stones he has (Purple and Blue, I think) to grab a moon. He starts to drag it toward whatever planet everyone is standing on. The debris starts to fly and… cut to title card.”
