New Avengers: Infinity War footage shows Thanos throwing a planet at the Avengers and more

Holy. Crap.

There's this little movie called Avengers: Infinity War coming out next summer, it's a little indie movie you probably haven't heard of. It'll only feature every Marvel Cinematic Universe character on the big screen in the same movie all while trying to tackle their deadliest foe yet, Thanos. No big deal.

The film just wrapped and for those lucky enough to attend Disney's D23 Expo, they got to see a sneak peek at Avengers: Infinity War. No, the footage isn't online at all. The footage has yet to leak online and Marvel probably won't release it unless they surprise us at San Diego Comic-Con next weekend but we do have this nice description of the trailer courtesy of IGN!

The trailer features a number of new things including Thor smashing into the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship and meeting them, Spidey's first real encounter with his Spidey-Sense, Thanos kicking ass and crushing our heroes, and… probably the craziest thing that has ever been done in a movie, Thanos throws a god damn planet at the Avengers. No idea how they'll prevent that from murdering billions of people but I guess we'll find out next year!

Spoiler alert for Spider-Man: Homecoming, there are call backs to things that happen in the recently released Spider-Man movie.

  • “Death follows him like a shadow," Mantis says of Thanos
  • Peter has Spidey-Sense! He's riding in a school bus as the hairs on his arm stand up as the villains' ship descends to Earth
  • Spidey has his new costume, the sleek one he rejected from Tony at the end of Homecoming.
  • Gamora walking around in the Collector's Lair where the aether from Thor: The Dark World is stored
  • Loki offering up the Cosmic Cube
  • A massive ship crashing into a planet
  • Seems like the Avengers — including Iron Man, Star-Lord, and Spidey — are in another realm at one point.
  • “This does put a smile on my face,” Thanos declares as he arrives on the planet and confronts the Avengers.
  • Doctor Strange and Star-Lord all trying to fight him
  • Quick shots of the Winter Soldier and Black Panther in Wakanda
  • Cap shows up WITH A  BEARD
  • Iron Man has a new kind of Hulkbuster-type armor and possibly a different mach of armor
  • Thanos palming Thor's head like he going to pop it like a balloon
  • Black Widow looks SUPER different, different hair. She's blonde now.
  • Looks like there are several different battles on different fronts
  • Thanos wielding the gauntlet, destroys a celestial body of some kind — it was so quick but it was either a planet or a moon — and HURLS IT AT THEM from on the ground.
  • Is Tony Stark the last man standing? Is his premonition from Age of Ultron coming true? His face was ashen, he was shaken.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.
