The new, full-length trailer for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War landed online earlier today, and unsurprisingly there’s a lot to dig into. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, this “culmination event” brings together pretty much every MCU character we’ve seen thus far as they come face to face with Josh Brolin’s Thanos, who’s on the hunt for Infinity Stones so that he can rule the galaxy once and for all.
With the film’s release now a little over a month away, we’re starting to get a much better idea of what to expect from this highly anticipated sequel. We’ve learned that the major third act battle takes place in Wakanda, which is no doubt welcome news to fans of Black Panther hoping to see a return to that world in the near future. We also know the backbone of the story is Thanos hunting for the Infinity Stones, with the Russo Brothers likening the film to a heist movie of sorts. They even pulled inspiration from Steven Soderbergh‘s classic Out of Sight.
These new images offer a closer look at the new trailer, which itself was mightily revealing. There are not only curious team-ups t be found, but also some fascinating reveals of Thanos’ Black Order—a group of henchmen who carry out his dirty work—and some incredibly precarious positions our Avengers will find themselves in.
