Avengers Infinity War Trailer Analysis

     The long awaited Avengers: Infinity War trailer finally was released on November 29 on Good Morning America. Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan was the lucky cast member to be interviewed and show off the trailer.

The trailer then cuts to Marvel’s logo sequence. The next shot shows Stark joining Wong, Strange and Banner at the Sanctum with a voice-over by Thanos himself. Spider-Man’s signature Spidey-sense has alerted him of danger, the danger being some sort of flying loop that is shown tearing apart the building around it. In another scene what appears to be Ebony Maw is walking over dead bodies. Which is followed by Loki offering up the Tesseract, from The Avengers, to an unseen figure. We then get our first look at Thanos himself as he appears out of a portal. We also get our first look at Spider-Man’s “iron Spider” suit that was offered to him at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
