Black Panther continues to be a behemoth at the box office, so it’s no surprise that a new Avengers: Infinity War image showcases the Wakandan leader and his elite group of warriors the Dora Milaje teaming up with Captain America, Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier. There are also the Wakandan border guard in this photo, so it looks like it’s all hands on deck to really put the “war” in “Infinity War.” I’m also guessing that the Soul Stone is somewhere in Wakanda. It should be interesting to see how heavily Wakanda ties into the marketing for Infinity War in the weeks ahead. I’m also curious to see how the box office for Infinity War compares with Black Panther.
For those unfamiliar with Avengers: Infinity War, the upcoming sequel has Thanos coming to Earth to claim all six Infinity Stones to power the Infinity Gauntlet. In the comics, if you possess all six stones, you have the power to reshape reality.
