With Marvel having recently released its third Chris Hemsworth Thor film, fans our now looking ahead to the studios’ 2018 offerings Black Panther and the highly-anticipated Avengers: InfinityWar. Ragnarok served the MCU not just as a strong standalone film of its own but also in setting the tone for coming future titles, with director Taika Waititi leaving his stylistic stamp on the universe as a whole. Infinity War brings the culmination of all of the events from the first Iron Man film to a head with recurring big bad Thanos coming to possess the super-powerful Infinity Gauntlet to become the most powerful being in the Cosmos. Naturally, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes must assemble once again to stop the incoming threat, although this time they won’t be able to do it alone with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and others, joining the fight against the mad titan.
While directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: Civil War) have stated that Avengers 3 will focus in on Thanos, as we haven’t seen too much of him over the course of the series, there will no doubt be plenty of time spent with heroes, who seem to be grouping together in various teams, as the new photos below may reveal. This would make sense given the state of affairs between Steve Rodgers and Tony Stark in Civil War, even if some time has passed.
Marvel Studios’ Commander-in-Chief Kevin Feige has promised that a trailer for the gargantuan team-up film would drop before the year’s over, which would lead us to assume that the leaked images, shown below, are taken from said trailer. Arriving via TheAscendedAcient on Imgur, the snapshots mainly show off the Cap’s side of things:
At this point, it remains a mystery as to who the user who uploaded the images is or how they got them, but these are clearly the genuine article. On close inspection, we can see the selection shows a bearded Captain America standing beside a blonde Black Widow along with Falcon, who can also be seen fighting a new character, Proxima Midnight, in one of the other images. Scarlett Witch uses her powers presumably in the middle of some kind of attack across three of the photos, Vision appears looking through bars and Dave Bautista’s Drax also joins the party alongside what looks like the Cap and Gamora. It’s difficult to say whether the images are taken from the same scene and if so what’s happening, but they do give us a clue as to who will be appearing on-screen with who in the film.
Recent reports are suggesting that a trailer for Avengers: Infinity War will be playing in front of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, hitting cinemas next month, so we may get some more answers then.
