The wait is over!! Ohemgee!! For all Marvel fans, this is what it’s all been boiling down to. After ten years, 17 films, and billions gained at the box office all the stars of the Marvel movies will come together for Avengers: Infinity War! That’s a powerhouse of A-list stars brought together to save the world.
In the trailer, you see super-villian Thanos (Josh Brolin) with the glove that is set to hold the six infinity stones that the fans have caught a glimpse of in some of the past Marvel movies. For those unaware of what those infinity stones are, each one represents a powerful force that the bad dudes are after to destroy the universe and have ultimate power. It’s up to the Avengers to make sure those gems don’t get misused. So, the fact that at one point Loki (Tom Hiddleston) holds the Tesseract in his hand in the new trailer makes one wonder…whose side is Loki on this time around? Granted, at one point his scepter held the Mind Stone, which now rests in the head of Vision (Paul Bettany). *GASP* But the trailer shows that stone being taken out of his head!! Which means Thanos has that Mind Stone and the Tesseract- which means he’s close to getting all the stones in that big ugly glove called the Infinity Gaunlet! And what the heck, Loki?? Who’s side are you on anyways, you God of Mischief?!
What are the six infinity stones? Glad you asked! I’ll give you a list –
- Tesseract or Space Stone (Seen in Captain America and The Avengers)
- Aether or Reality Stone (Seen in Thor: The Dark World)
- Orb or Power Stone (Seen in Guardians of the Galaxy)
- Loki’s Scepter and now Vision holds the Mind Stone (Avengers & Avengers: Age of Ultron)
- Soul Stone (Hmm..not yet seen?)
- Time Stone (Seen in Doctor Strange)
What do they all mean? Well, I won’t go into each one. If you really want to find out I’m sure you can google it. Better yet, re-watch all the films in order from the beginning. Grab some popcorn, candy, and a comfy blanket and marathon the heck out of these films. They’re worth watching, and when seen all together, a bigger picture emerges all leading up to Avengers: Infinity War. Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Thor, Star Lord, Hulk, Vision, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, etc, etc, etc….all of them together!!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!
Here’s the trailer – P. S. – Captain America with a beard gives me life. Have I said that? Well, I am now! *swoon*
