    Default Avengers: Infinity War

    But why is Phil Mitchell off Eastenders the villain?

    The trailer was amazingly overwhelming. I can't imagine how it's all going to fit into a (probably) two hour long max movie. No mention of it being a two part film anywhere?

    Too many characters, man. They're all in it!

    Once Thanos gets all the stones doesn't that make him pretty unstoppable? Time alone seems to be enough to make someone invincible.

    It's a two parter so there will be Infinity War Part 2 at some point. But Infinity War is supposed to be the last of the RDJ Iron Man-led Avenger movies. My guess is that him or Captain America dies at the end or both. It's far from the last Marvel movie because they already have like four more that I can think of off the top of my head (Ant Man 2, Spider-Man Homecoming 2, GoG 3 and Ms. Marvel) that are coming out after this movie.

    Basically, it will never end as long as there is money to be made.

    Infinity War and its sequel (unnamed, they've said it won't be called Infinity War part 2) are just the last movies of phase 3, just as the previous Avengers movies were the last of phase 1 and 2 (well, besides Ant-Man, which got switcharoo'd to the end of phase 2). Some of the current avengers' contracts will be over at the end of phase 3 but whether they'll kill them off, retire them or just re-up the contract, who knows.

    Obviously they'll just go right ahead with phase 4, and probably phase 5 too. Expect more space and magic at that point, phase 1 and 2 started off relatively grounded so as to better invite newcomers to crazy comics shenanigans.

    Yes.

    Spoilers For The Comic Book Infinity War Arc
    In the comics, one becomes basically omnipotent once one acquires all of them. Thanos kills half of the Marvel Universe with a thought, because he thought it would impress Death, whom he had a crush on (it didn't). He then tries to impress her by fighting the remaining Avengers, showing off his martial strength. One of Thanos's advisers (Mephisto) convinced him that Death, being a lady, would hardly be impressed by a battle that Thanos could not lose. He therefore convinced Thanos to give up his omniscience to offer a slight chance to the mortals fighting him. However, when he can still literally just turn Thor into a glass statue with a thought, it's not a very fair fight.

    After winning that battle, Thanos "ascends" to being an entity no longer bound by the physical realm... Which means he left his gauntlet and his shiny power gems behind, where they're nabbed by Nebula, who was basically a zombie husk dragged around as a trophy/example by Thanos, but wasn't so far gone that she missed the ultimate power sitting right in front of her. Before Thanos could react, she takes the gems and restores herself to the peak of her power, while removing Thanos's. She then undoes basically everything done with them lately with a single thought, which restores the Marvel Universe to life...and turns her back into a brain-broken zombie. But, Thanos gloats about her mistake instead of just taking the glove back immediately, and she restores herself again before anyone else can take it from her.

    A group of cosmic entities attacked Nebula all at once while she had the gems, and she fought them by hand, being too distracted to realize she could just think them into nonexistence. While she is winning the fight easily, she's distracted enough that the Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock can use Warlock's connection to the Soul Gem to disrupt the gems and steal the gauntlet from her. This puts the gems in the hands of Warlock.


    That's basically the end of the arc, with a new holder serving as a new omnipotent being in the Marvel universe... Until his power is unceremoniously stripped by an entity called the Living Tribunal who has power beyond the gems and says that the current wielder isn't suited to carry them, making the entire arc somewhat pointless and showing that even omnipotence is really just a scale on the massive power creep of comic books (especially as the Living Tribunal itself is then subservient to another entity of even greater power).

    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    I think Logan will be the pinnacle of this genre. This new Avengers movie just looks like too much. It's like a plate with too much food on it.

    I'm hoping with all we've seen in the trailer they haven't gone the way of previous films (Justice League etc) by showing us all the good stuff and leaving no surprises to look forward to. It's hard to imagine it's even possible.

    Deadpool:
    As a mercenary, my first loyalty is to my hand. My right hand to be precise. Don't tell lefty, he gets jealous.
    My pal, Dexter, and I have had a longstanding on-and-off romance. I've proposed to her multiple times but she always says she's still young and wants to explore her sexuality while men are still interested. Well, men and women. She strokes both ways. That's a double entendre.

    Other than the whole thing with Vision, they really haven't shown us all that much. They won't even tell us the name of part two because it's going to be a spoiler, so there's at least one major thing that they haven't shown yet. This is only the first trailer, so there's going to be a lot more to come as the date draws closer. At this point though, either you're going to see the movie or you're not, and trailers aren't going to make much of a difference. This one was okay, but there was nothing super-crazy in it that got me excited. I'll go see it, but it'll be because we're over a dozen movies in and I'm interested to see what happens to these characters, not because of this first footage.

    Much hype, saw a trailer tonight in the cinema, which I hadn't seen before.

    Still need to see Guardians 2 and Thor 3 somehow, before this one's in theaters >.>
