Final AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Trailer Teases Captain America vs. Thanos
Marvel has released the final trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us a look at the Black Order and what appears to be major confrontation between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and supervillain Thanos (Josh Brolin).
The two minute, fifteen second trailer opens with an upside down view of Manhattan as we hear a voiceover from Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Thanos' adopted daugher, who says, "The entire time I knew him, he only ever had one goal...to wipe out half the universe. If he gets all the Infinity Stones, he can do it with a snap of his fingers. Just like that."
"Tell me his name again," replies Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).
We then see images of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) leaving his school bus, putting on his Spider-Man mask, and web swinging off a bridge.
"We've got one advantage," Iron Man says in a voiceover as we see him flying after a spaceship. "He's coming to us."
"We have what Thanos wants," Iron Man continues as Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) activates the Eye of Agamotto, "so that's what we'll use."
Steve and the other Avengers arrive in the African nation of Wakanda, where Steve shakes the hand of Black Panther/T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), who is accompanied by his Dora Milaje bodyguards. We then see T'Challa's sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) looking down at a hologram of The Vision (Paul Bettany) in the palm of her hand.
The trailer cuts to a different scene, where Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is talking with Iron Man, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) and Spider-Man. "Let's talk about this plan of yours," he says to Tony. "I think it's good, except, it sucks, so let me do the plan and that way, it might be really good."
Tony rolls his eyes and replies, "Wow."
We then see Black Panther and Steve Rogers on a flying craft, leading the Wakandan forces into battle alongside Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and Steve's longtime friend The Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
"The end is near," remarks Thanos in a voiceover as we see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) briefly blinding Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) with a burst of lightning, "and when I'm done, half of humanity will still exist."
We glimpse the larger Thanos squeezing Thor's head in the palm of his hand, causing his agony as Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the Black Order look on. Thanos then crushes the Tesseract in the palm of his other hand.
As the battle in Wakanda begins, Thanos remarks in another voiceover, "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be." We see Corvus Glaive torturing Doctor Strange, followed by Thanos saying "I hope they remember you."
This is immediately followed by Thanos' large Infinity Gauntlet coming down on Steve, who blocks it and struggles to hold it back with everything he has, much to Thanos' surprise.
A final scene has Spider-Man awkwardly meeting Doctor Strange, with Peter offering his hand, saying "I'm Peter, by the way."
"Doctor Strange," replies the Sorcerer Supreme.
"Oh!" exclaims Peter. "Using our made-up names. Then I am Spider-Man." This is followed by a brief shot of Spider-Man swinging into the chaotic battle from before.
