So exactly how many superheroes does it take to make a blockbuster in today’s overly saturated genre market? Well, it appears that it takes all of them at least every one that’s ever appeared in a Marvel movie in the last decade. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has been promised all along and it is the culmination of a well marketed, ambitious and well strategized campaign by Marvel Films who set out to create a cinematic universe that began with Iron Man (2008) and has come to this; every hero coming together to bring down a mad god, the Titan Thanos!
Infinity War is based on one of the most celebrated arcs in the Marvel Comics and has been teased since the very first Avengers film when Loki bargains with an alien army to wage an invasion of the planet that results in the mighty Avengers, the world’s greatest heroes coming together to repel the threat. Thanos has been on a quest to gather the Infinity Stones a series of precious gems older than the cosmos that grant whomever possesses them ultimate power. Now the mad Titan has come to Earth, and the Avengers are our first and last defense against his tyranny.
From the scope of the latest trailer, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War will culminate in at least one sacrifice and when the film ends, audiences will have to hold their breaths. Infinity War is the first part in a two part feature film that will reshape the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.
