Despite all of the many good guys and gals on display in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, very few of them have any idea just what Earth and its mightiest heroes are in for with the arrival of Thanos. Luckily, the coalition of the planet’s defenders have Gamora (Zoe Saldana)–and to a lesser extent, Nebula (Karen Gillan)–available to give them the lowdown on the Mad Titan. And luckily for audiences and fans of the MCU who might not be as well versed in the comics’ lore as some, this new trailer gives Gamora the spotlight when it comes to explaining the ultimate antagonist’s incredible power and plans for world domination.
But there’s a lot of other stuff going on in this new look, as you might expect considering that the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed film is the culmination of 10 years’ worth of MCU stories and characters. It’s all been building to this … and it’s all about to pay off in a big–and probably bittersweet–way once Avengers: Infinity War hits screens on April 27th. If you want to go into that viewing experience as fresh as possible (I don’t blame you), you might want to go ahead and skip the following trailer breakdown since it takes a detailed look at the new reveals. But for the brave and the curious among you, let’s soldier forth.
Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War if you need a refresher:
