Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Reaction

So anyone who’s spent five minutes on the Internet since this morning can probably tell you what today was: Infinity War trailer day! If you’re Facebook and Twitter feeds are similar to mine, then that’s about all anyone can talk about. So, why don’t’ we join in on the fun?

First off, the trailer itself:

Watch here because it won't let me add the video to this post for some reason

So just a few things that stood out to me as I watched this:

-human Vision and Wanda. I want to know more about this.

-The Spider Sense! This is one of the things I was most excited to see, to be honest.

-Loki with the tesseract, possibly walking through a bunch of dead people.

-Thanos’ skin is more of a muted purple than before. I like the way he looks here, less cartoony than before.

-Peter’s now wearing the Iron Spider suit. I dig the glowing eyes.

-Whatever Thor’s doing at 1:27 makes me think I need to finally get around to seeing Ragnarok.

-1:29- Google tells me the woman throwing the spear at this Steve Rogers-proportioned shadow is Proxima Midnight, one of the ‘children’ of Thanos.

-I think there was a collective squee of ‘Yessss!’ when T’Challa said “And get this man a shield” and Steve walks out of the shadow in all his bearded gloriousness.

-Is anyone else a little worried what Wanda is going to do if Vision dies from getting the Stone pulled out of his head? Just me?

-I’d like to know how Thanos figures he’s ‘balancing the universe’ by having all the Infinity Gems to himself. I don’t think that’s how that works, man.

-Nice to see Bucky got himself a new arm.

-This invasion and fight in Wakanda is going to be badass. I already can’t wait for Black Panther’s movie and this isn’t helping.

-And finally, I loved Mantis’ awkward wave. That was the cutest.

So what’s the takeaway here? This looks awesome. At this point, I don’t think I need any more trailers. Let’s be real here, I was going to see this one anyway, but it’s nice to see the trailer and really confirm that excitement. This is going to be a massive undertaking of a film, but I have confidence in the Russo brothers to make this work. We’ll find out how they do May 4th, 2018. I have to wonder how long this one is going to be, especially if it’s not a two-parter anymore and Avengers 4 is going to be its own thing. I’m thinking a good two-and-a-half hours, at least. And I am so on board.

    I can’t be the only one that thinks it’s weird seeing black widow with blond hair.

  2. Steve M, says:

    Yes, I prefer her in red hair, too.
    One punch from Thanos and it looks like Iron Man is out. Not good for the team.
    Return of the Hulk-Buster armor! Hopefully to be used against Thanos!
    Anybody see Hawkeye in the trailer?
    This is probably going to end in a cliffhanger, so we won’t know how it all ends until May 2019! Ugh!

    Not as weird as Natasha Romanova without a Russian accent.
