New Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Is Incredible, Check It Out “The end is near.”

Now Playing: Avengers: Infinity War – Official Trailer

The new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War is here. The movie will see every major hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe team up to stop the evil Thanos getting his hands on the Infinity Stones, and causing the end of the world.

The trailer gives a good indication of just how epic the movie will be, with huge battles between the Marvel heroes and Thanos’s armies, and some amazing-looking action. But there’s also plenty of humor, as some of the characters meet for the first time. In particular, it looks like Star Lord and Tony Stark might have an enjoyably spikey relationship. Check it out above.

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Holland. It hits theaters on April 27. It is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who helmed the last two Captain America movies, and will follow it up with next year’s currently untitled Avengers 4.

Every MCU Plot Will Find ‘Narrative Thread’ In Avengers 3 & 4

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will be jam-packed with characters and content, but the minds behind the film promise every arc from the MCU so far will be paid off. Marvel has a good problem on their hands, as their huge team-up film debuting this summer is current being eclipse by their first film of the year. Black Panther is shattering box office records and proving to be a cultural phenomenon. And though Avengers 3 won’t have any trouble attracting an audience, its return to Wakanda will certainly get people excited.

It’s easy to see how the events of Black Panther will play into Avengers: Infinity War, but the past 10 years of the MCU have involved a lot of stories that are still open-ended. Marvel’s 10 year anniversary photo brought home just how many big name actors and characters could factor into the next two Avengers films, and some fans are worried about whether the movies can do so many arcs justice. But according to the architects of the MCU, everything will be connected.

Expect The First Venom Trailer In The Next Two Weeks

Sony Pictures’ Venom is expected to release a first trailer soon. After Sony’s plan to launch their own Spider-Man-related superhero universe with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 became a nonstarter, the studio struck a landmark deal with Marvel Studios to bring Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, last year Sony announced plans for a Venom movie starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer attached to direct.

The announcement of the movie focusing on a character often associated with Spider-Man caused confusion among Marvel fans about whether Venom would be in the MCU or launch a completely separate superhero series. It’s still unclear whether or not Venom takes place in the MCU since Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said it’s not in their universe, but the latest reports claim Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Peter Parker, Tom Holland, will appear in Venom. Nevertheless, while Venom’s connection to the MCU is major talking point among fans, many are excited for the film focused on Eddie Brock either way. Now, they’ll get a first look at Venom soon enough.

The Manitoba Film Classification Board [h/t Trailer-Track] has officially rated the first trailer for Venom, indicating the teaser will arrive soon. It will most likely arrive in the next two weeks so that it can be attached to Marvel Studios’ latest MCU installment, Black Panther, which hits theaters in just over two weeks time. This is also the plan for the 20th Century Fox Marvel movie, Deadpool 2, which is expected to debut its full-length trailer just in time to run prior to Black Panther in theaters.

Venom-Tom-Hardy-as-Eddie-Brock

So far, all Sony has revealed of the Venom movie is a photo of Hardy as Eddie Brock, and a video the film screened at its panel during Brazil Comic Con. Of course, that Venom photo did hint at five symbiotes, and we know the movie is adapting the Venom: Lethal Protector miniseries from the comics, so we know some of what to expect from Sony’s film. But for many fans of the comic book characters, how the symbiote is brought to life will have a major impact on their anticipation for the film itself. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 featured a live-action Brock and Venom (played by Topher Grace) that wasn’t well received, and left a sour taste in the mouth of many fans

As such, the Venom trailer will be a big make or break moment in terms of building hype for the movie ahead of its October release date. That said, since the film isn’t set to hit theaters for another eight months, if the trailer doesn’t win over fans, Sony has time for reshoots and alterations before the movie is rolled out. Venom recently wrapped principal photography, according to a photo posted by Hardy himself from the film’s set, but the movie will no doubt be back for reshoots since most major productions do reshoots. Undoubtedly, Sony would like to avoid major changes, but there’s a great deal riding on the success of Venom.

Sony has a few other Spidey-related movies in the works – including Silver and Black, which already has a 2019 release date but hasn’t set a filming start or cast its leads – and the studio is likely looking to Venom to pave the way for the MCU-adjunct universe. We’ll know more about what to expect from Venom, and Sony’s new superhero franchise, once the first trailer is released; according to this new report, we shouldn’t have to wait long for that Venomtrailer to debut.

Justice League Reacts To Avengers: Infinity War Trailer In New Fan Video

A funny new fan video imagines the Justice League‘s reaction to the recently released Avengers: Infinity War trailer. Trailer mash-ups aren’t exactly a new thing in the Youtube community, but they’re a great way for talented fans to show off their own talent and express their love for their favorite films. Youtube user DrMachakil has become something of a mash-up master over the last few years, cranking out such winners as “Tom Cruise falls into other movies” and the spectacularly spot-on “PHONE FIGHTS : The Joker vs John McClane“. (Seriously, give the latter a watch at least — it’s awesome.)

DrMachakil is perhaps best known for his reaction parody videos, like “Superheroes react to Donald Trump’s Victory“, “Andrew Garfield reacts to Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer“, and of course, “The Avengers react to Justice League Trailer“. In the latter, playing the first official trailer for Justice League over Ultron’s introduction scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron resulted in DrMachakil’s biggest hit to date, racking up over 6 million views in the 6 months since its release.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR SETS RECORD AS MOST WATCHED TRAILER IN FIRST 24 HOURS

 

The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has set a major new record.

Marvel Studios announced on Twitter Infinity War’s debut look is now the most-viewed trailer debut ever. As of writing, the trailer is currently up to 230 million views in its first 24 hours since release on November 29.

Stephen King’s IT most recently held the record, garnering 197 million views in its first 24 hours earlier this year. Make sure to check out IGN’s breakdown of the Infinity War trailer below for a look at some of the details and secrets you might’ve missed.

The trailer finally gives fans a proper look at Thanos battling some fan-favorite Marvel superheroes, including Spider-Man and Iron Man.

Leaked Justice League Deleted Scenes Feature Iris West & Cyborg VR

Warner Bros. just launched Justice League into theaters, but deleted scenes have already leaked online. Arguably the most important movie in WB’s still young DC movie universe is here and is adding to the controversial nature of the franchise. Justice League sports the biggest and most powerful DC heroes all on the screen for the first time, but much has been made of the behind-the-scenes turmoil the project has had. From last second rewrites, to major reshoots, and losing Zack Snyder as the director, it is safe to say the film that is currently playing in theaters is not what initially was planned.

All of these factors and a mandated runtime from the studio for Justice League to be under two hours have sparked conversations over what is missing from the film. Surprisingly, deleted scenes from the film have already leaked online showing Iris West’s cameo and more of Cyborg.

RELATED: WHAT JOSS WHEDON RESHOT IN JUSTICE LEAGUE

A Vimeo user has uploaded six deleted scenes from Justice League days into its theatrical run. The biggest scene shows Keirsey Clemons cameo as Iris West, when Barry rushes to save her in from a potentially fatal car accident. The other five scenes all include Cyborg. One shows him learning to fly, another of him analyzing weapons data, one in the halls of leading to the Kryptonian ship, and two more that are rather strange. In what appears to be some sort of virtual reality display, a regular looking Victor Stone is shown approaching a base of Nazis, and in another scene controlling hundreds of missiles – similar to what Magneto does in X-Men: First Class.

Kiersey-Clemons-Justice-League-Cameo

The most surprising thing about this leak is the timing. Having these leak during Justice League‘s opening weekend isn’t great, especially with the debate over what was cut being such a big topic. The context of these scenes are not entirely clear, but they should all be from Zack Snyder’s original cut and footage he shot. Justice League is condensed to a runtime less than two hours, but fans eager to see more of Flash’s world will only wish him saving Iris was included even more. This is actually the first look at Clemons in the role and would make for a memorable entrance if nothing else.

The Cyborg scenes are a bit more bizarre as they are much shorter than full length scenes. The rooftop flying scene and him investigating satellites, missiles, etc look to be the ones closest to making the film based on the quality of the VFX. The trailers actually used the shot of Cyborg bursting through the clouds early on, but it probably will never be revealed why they cut the scene and only teased him knowing how to fly early on. The VR like scenes are just as mysterious, but also add another layer to Cyborg as he projects his form in the way he was before his accident.

Unfortunately, none of these scenes are in the movie and are sure to be taken down soon. Once Justice League nears its home video release, expect more deleted scenes to be released, but officially this time. Plus, if an extended cut is being considered, there is a better chance these scenes are finished and put into the film. If not, we’ll have to wait and see whether or not Warner Bros. ever officially release the clips.

5 questions I have after watching Thor: Ragnarok

The next upcoming MCU movie hits cinemas on October 24 (in the UK – the US have to wait until November 3), but the Thor: Ragnarok reviews are in now and boy, are they positive! It looks like Marvel Studios has another hit on its hands and that’s no bad thing. I do have a few questions after watching the movie though… mainly about how it ties into the MCU timeline and the upcoming events of Avengers: Infinity War, but you certainly don’t want to read about them until after you’ve seen Thor 3 because there’s major spoilers wrapped up in those questions (and the answers). So, what I want you to do is save this page and come back to it once you’ve seen the movie. Done that? Is this you coming back to read about what that ending means? Ok, then, let’s go!

1. Where is the Tesseract (AKA, the Space Stone) now?

nWFpFvPJkgXYNTnvqYveU3-650-80

While Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t have loads ties to the rest of the MCU or the upcoming superhero-fest which is Infinity War, there was one scene which screamed ‘crossover information’ at the top of it’s lungs. When Hela is walking past Odin’s treasures looking for the Eternal Flame she complains that they’re all fake, flicking what looks like the Infinity Gauntlet to the floor. This clears up a long-standing inconsistency in the MCU where it appeared that both Odin and Thanos had the gauntlet – it turns out the one in Asgard is a fake. Interestingly though, Hela had nothing but praise for the Tesseract which was on display nearby leading me to believe that it most certainly isn’t a fake. That means it’s going to be a part of the Infinity War saga which starts next year. But wait, wasn’t Asgard destroyed at the end of the movie along with all the treasures (fake or otherwise) hidden in Odin’s vaults? So, where is the Tesseract now? Floating amongst the debris? No way, didn’t you see Loki giving it the eye when he went to unleash Surtur? He definitely picked it up on his way out. There’s no way he could have resisted it, which means Loki is currently in possession of the Tesseract, on the ship with the rest of Asgard, heading for Earth. Remember that… it’s going to be important.

2. Is Thor really not getting his eye back?

RcFBEeNL966FCYr7VQC4ZJ-650-80

I know the eye patch at the end of the movie felt kind of permanent, but up until that point I was convinced Thor would be magically healed and get his eye back. It’s not often movie studios make big, dramatic changes to the look of their heroes, which need to be maintained across multiple films. And I bet it’s really itchy for Chris Hemsworth too! That said, there’s a nice symmetry between how he looks now and Odin (maybe it’s mandatory that every ruler of Asgard only has one eye?) and I can’t wait to see how many one-eyed wisecracks Tony Stark comes up with.

3. Where will Asgard be rebuilt?

oa9RwUzVr5QjwGHmL6Lk4K-650-80

Asgard was destroyed by Ragnarok at the end of the movie, but as everyone who’s seen it knows, Asgard isn’t a place, it’s a people. And it’s people escaped the destruction on a ship along with Thor, Loki, the Hulk, Valkyrie, Heimdall, Korg and the rest of his revolutionary buddies. When it came time to choose where the new Asgard would be built, Thor, rather predictably, opted to head for Earth. Well, I guess he is pretty found of us. So, does this mean we’re going to see the birth of a new Asgard on Earth in Thor 4 or maybe even in one of the Infinity War movies? And if so, where on Earth? I’m opting for Norway. Odin did say that “this could be Asgard” when Thor and Loki found him in Norway at the beginning of the film and they are Norse gods after all. It makes sense. How will modern-day Norway feel about these all-powerful refugees turning up on their doorstep though? Pretty good I reckon, Thor is famous on Earth, you know?

4. Whose ship was that at the end?

gKPfZrw7TAhcm9H2tsb5e4-650-80

It’s has to be Thanos, right? It HAS to be. Who else would turn up in an MCU post-credits scene, facing down the heroes in what can only be described as a ship SO BIG, it must be compensating for something. Thanos. That’s who. Ok, ok, so I don’t know that for sure, we didn’t see who was piloting it, but I think it’s a safe bet that it’s the big purple guy. He’s probably come to steal the Tesseract out from under Loki which will no doubt be easy given that the Asgardians haven’t even had a chance to recover from their battle with Hela. Could we be seeing the fallout from this scene at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War?

5. Where is that sneaky Soul Stone?

dBFfYnwGMSh6aS9AU8DVkj-650-80 (1)

If you were hoping that the last remaining, missing-in-action, Infinity Stone was going to make an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, you were sadly disappointed. I certainly didn’t spot it anywhere (let me know if you did!), which means it’s either really well hidden or Marvel Studios are keeping the Soul Stone under wraps until Black Panther. It’s the only Infinity Stone we haven’t seen in the MCU yet and it makes sense that it will be introduced before Infinity War where it will no doubt be joining its counterparts in Thanos’ gauntlet. Many fans assumed it would be revealed in Thor 3, but it doesn’t look like this is the case, leaving the only other remaining MCU movie to be released before Infinity War – the solo Black Panther movie – the likely candidate for its reveal. I’ll be combing through that movie come February with a fine-tooth comb looking for the orange rock!

Venom Will Include Scenes Set in Asia

Sony’s upcoming Venom movie will feature scenes set in Asia, a new casting call has revealed. Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer is directing this Marvel Comics adaptation for Sony, with Tom Hardy in the title role as Venom (aka Eddie Brock, a photographer that bonds with an alien symbiote). Fans recently learned that Hardy’s performance in the movie is set to include motion capture work.

Hardy – who has the support of Venom’s comic book creator, Todd McFarlane – could well be facing off against other symbiote characters in the Venom film, according to a recent rumor. Whoever it is that Hardy ends up fighting in the film, the first entry in Sony’s Marvel Universe, Venom‘s action quotient is expected to be epic: the stunt coordinators of John Wick, Captain America: Civil War, Logan and Baby Driver boarded the project a few months ago.

Here’s Another Awesome Justice League IMAX Poster

A new IMAX poster for Justice League has just arrived continuing the film’s recent penchant for comic book-looking promotional images. As marketing for Justice League ramps up ahead of its release, fans have been treated with a steady stream of promo materials for the film. This one, however, comes from Regal Cinema and appears to be a variant of the previously released one.

DC’s first superhero team-up pits the League against Darkseid’s uncle, Steppenwolf, as villain descends to Earth with his army of Parademons to wreak havoc in search of the Mother Boxes. With Superman dead (but not really), it is up to Batman and his newly recruited team to protect humanity before the alien villain and his cohorts do something terrible and irreversible on their home planet.

Posting the image on the theater chain’s official Twitter account, the poster features Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg in various action poses all strategically placed in the frame. Interestingly, Diana switches things up and now showcases her Lasso of Truth after she sported her God-killer sword and shield in the other version of the IMAX-exclusive. Aquaman, on the other hand, still has his trident. On closer inspection, despite both IMAX posters taking style cues from the comics, this new one appears more cartoonish. Check the artwork below:

Justice-League-Regal-Cinemax-IMAX-Poster

Amidst the flurry of posters for Justice League appearing over the last several days, Superman remains to be absent from almost all of them. While there was a cool reference to the Man of Steel in one of the recent ones with the Flash basically pointing toward the insignia for Clark Kent’s superhero alter ego, the character has still been mostly left out of the marketing materials for the movie, despite his return being a foregone conclusion at this point.

Still, it won’t be long now until fans finally get to experience the full film as it drops in just three weeks. The cast has already started a multi-country press tour, kicking it off in China a few days ago. Meanwhile, back in the States, the Justice League fever is on. Judging by the box office tracking for the project, it appears that Warner Bros.’ efforts in keeping the hype train running are working well, with the movie potentially pocketing $110-120 million domestically by the end of its first weekend.
