Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Footage Screens at D23 to Standing Ovations

Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios

This years’ D23 is already proving to be huge. We have seen the first looks at the Incredibles 2, Wreck-It Ralph 2, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and now word comes that Marvel screened footage from Avengers: Infinity War. The crowd was reported brought to their feet as soon as the clip finished this morning, and if reports are to be believed, the footage is epic.

A number of Marvel stars were on-hand to unveil the footage, including Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, co-director Joe Russo and Marvel’s Kevin Feige. Unfortunately, the footage was meant for attendees only, and will not be released online.

We have a breakdown of what the footage entailed, courtesy of DarkHorizons:

The clip begins with the ‘Guardians’ travelling through a creepy section of space filled with debris when an unconscious Thor in his ‘Ragnarok’ garb hits the spaceship’s windshield. Mantis wakes him up, Thor looks around and sees Star-Lord (Pratt) and asks: “Who the hell are you guys?”

The main thrust of the footage sees a giant ship seemingly headed towards Earth on a collision course. Loki presents the Tesseract to someone, Peter Parker on a school bus sees his arm hair rising, and Gamora in The Collector’s shattered museum.

Dialogue includes Mantis saying: “Death follows him like a shadow,” Iron Man says: “We have one advantage… he’s coming to us” and Thanos says: “Fun really isn’t something one considers while balancing the universe… But this puts a smile on my face”. Thanos then steps out of a dark vortex – he’s arrived on Earth.

Cut to Star-Lord jumping around on platforms made by Strange, Captain America sporting a beard, Spider-Man with a new suit akin to the one glimpsed briefly in ‘Homecoming’, a shot of Vision in a cell, a Wakandan army with the Winter Soldier amongst them, Black Widow with blonde hair, someone in Hulkbuster armor.

There’s also a shot of an injured Peter Parker saying: “Tony, I’m sorry. I’m sorry” as Stark cradles his head, Thanos grabs Thor’s head and twists, Iron Man gets punched hard and the mad Titan says: “I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. But you’ll fail all the same… Run from it, but destiny still arrives.”

Cut to the money shot as Thanos uses the Infinity Gauntlet to pull down part of a moon and turns it into a giant wave of meteors raining towards the planet everyone is standing on.

D23 also has statues that show what Thanos and his Black Order will look like in Avengers: Infinity War, along with he first official look at the Infinity Gauntlet. You can check out the images below:
