And we all thought it couldn't be beaten.
View the brand new trailer here:
Let's delve deep into this trailer and see what it has to truly offer.
We begin with the disorientating shot of Manhattan. In the background (scaled up for your ease), is Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) with new boosters, which we see later in the trailer.
It is likely that this is Iron Man heading towards the ring that is floating in the sky, something which Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spiderman seems to take a keen interest in.
GAMORA: "The entire time I knew him, he only ever had one goal"
We then see Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Rhody/War Machine (Don Cheadle) standing in what looks to be the same place that we saw Thor in Trailer #1. How these all come together is a question we are all asking and anticipating.
GAMORA: "To wipe out half the Universe"
Benedict Cumberbatch's Dr. Stephen Strange's residence, the Sactum Sanctorum is witnessed here, with the reflection of Iron Man in the distance flying across the Eye of Agamotto themed window.
Thanos (Josh Brolin) casually drops the second Infinity Stone into his gauntlet. It's seen that later in the trailer, the final fight will see Thanos still only wielding 2 of the 6 Infinity Stones.
GAMORA: "If he gets all the Infinity Stones, he can do it with the snap of his fingers"
Gamora, portrayed by Zoe Saldana, re-enacts this snapping motion as she talks to the Guardians of the Galaxy.
GAMORA: "...Just like that"
Thanos is here seen wielding the Gauntlet and armour that is better seen later within the trailer. It's presumed that Brolin's Thanos will go around the locations of the Infinity Stones and destroy anything in its path in order to acquire them.
TONY STARK: "Tell me his name again?"
With a quick flash of the Marvel logo, we are greeted to an extension of the Trailer #1 scene featuring Tom Holland's Spiderman. He jumps out of the school bus and swings across the bridge that the bus was travelling along.
In the next shot, we get a better look at the currently unnamed spinning wheel of doom, that flies above the skies of New York.
TONY STARK: "We got one advantage"
As quoted before (see above) we have Iron Man (Tony Stark) flying towards one of Thanos' ships which later becomes much easier as his boots mould to form a large booster that propels him through the air.
TONY STARK: "He's [Thanos is] coming to us"
We see Dr Strange here wielding the Eye of Agamotto, behind him, the wreckage that a certain Hulk sized person left behind after crashing down to Earth from a spaceship.
In the forestry of Wakanda, home to King T'Challa, we see Scarlet Witch/ Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and The Vision (Paul Bettany) of whom has a certain Infinity Stone slap bang in the centre of his forehead- which we do see get extracted in Trailer #1
TONY STARK: "We have what Thanos wants, so that's what we is"
Back to the world of Wakanda now, as we see King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) alongside Danai Gurira who plays Okoye. In the foreground we see Black Widow and Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans)
We here have plenty of Avengers to satisfy your needs, Captain America, Black Widow, Rhody, Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Bruce Banner, Wanda, The Vision and M'Baku (Winston Duke)- along with King T'Challa aka Black Panther.
From royalty to rogues, we see the Guardians of the Galaxy team come down their ship and into a vast room which later is lit with the lightning of Thor's new hammer. In this scene we see Star Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora and Drax (Dave Bautista)
PETER QUILL: "Let's talk about this plan of yours.."
We now see Peter Quill interacting with Iron Man, Drax and Spiderman on Titan- Thanos' home world. In the comics, The titans are a race of the Eternals. Said to be the success of the Celestial's experiments, the Eternals can all join the Uni-Mind. They also choose their abilities to accelerate in and have longevity.
PETER QUILL: "It's good, except, it sucks, so let me do the plan and that way, it might be really good"
IRON MAN: "...Wow."
We get a quick glimpse at Spidey's Iron Spider suit that has been teased over the trailers released. And we then get a better look at the team we have in Wakanda, as they fire over towards Thanos' extraordinarily large army.
This scene really has a feel of scale towards it as they 'ride' into battle.
We see a really cool shot of the upgraded hulkbuster suit, which we imagine Bruce is in, as team Iron Man has not been shown to be in the battle of Wakanda yet.
We now arguably see one of the best shots of the trailer as Thor summons his lightening as Rocket and Groot look speechless.
Thanos:"The end is near"
In this scene we see Thanos offering his hand to Gamora. This will be here backstory. As he is in full armour it shows that he has invaded and attacked this planet, which is why you can see green skinned aliens standing behind the chitauri guards. It is really bizarre how willingly Gamora accepts Thanos.
Thanos:"When I'm done half of humanity will still exist"
This is one of the most saddest moment of the trailer. The Avengers "second strongest Avenger" is in the most pain we have ever seen him in. This moment truly shows the power Thanos has as he has now power whatsoever over him.
Personally my favourite shot from the whole trailer. This depicts the bad guys which are going to be challenging the Avengers. They go by the name Black Order and is consisted of Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian (originally called Black Dwarf in the comics). Supergiant is not present here and it is unclear whether she is in the movie or not. It also looks like Loki has turned to the bad side again.
This next scene is interesting as we see Thanos crushing the Tesseract. This could mean that either Loki didn't betray the heroes but was tracked down by Thanos and forcefully removed it from Loki or he just switched sides yet again to the side he believes will win as he has no loyalty.
There is an overhead shot of the Chitauri attacking Wakanda. Due to Wakanda being extremely advanced their defences are holding up very well. There could be multiple reasons why it is being attacked. Maybe it is because that is where the soul stone is? Or maybe it is because that is where Vision is and they're attacking Wakanda to try and get the mind stone of his head.
Probably the scariest part of the trailer. We see Doctor Strange being dominated by a member of the Black Order, which is implied to be Ebony Maw, the master of manipulation. This scene is very creepy and makes us worried about how Doctor Strange will be affected by this encounter. Just before this we see StarLord jumping around on magic that Doctor Strange conjures up during an action sequence.
Thanos: "Perfectly balanced as all things should be"
We get a quick glimpse of Thanos talking, then Iron man with his suit half destroyed and Thanos jumping towards him. Then it shows Captain America trying to hold back Thanos' hand. He gives Cap a confused look. This could be for multiple reasons, as he could be impressed as to how strong Cap is, or the more likely option is that Thanos is confused as to why someone so inferior to him even considered trying to hold him back.
Thanos: "I hope they remember you"
This is the first time we see these two interact. In a previous interview Benedict Cumberbatch said that these two become really good friends so this is only the beginning of hopefully a long lasting friendship. We also see some cool moves by Spiderman as he dodges rubble.
Spiderman: "I'm Peter by the way"
Doctor Strange:" Doctor Strange"
Spiderman:" Oh are we using our made up names? Then i am Spiderman"
This certainly put a smile of our faces! We cannot believe how good this movie is shaping up to be and its only the first part! We highly appreciate you checking out the trailer breakdown and we would be thankful if you returned for the Weekly Oddity on Sunday.
