Clear we must have done something to offend Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo, because he has cut off our supply of San Diego Comic-Con trailer footage and has no timeline for when the general public may see a trailer.
Russo dropped the devastating news on an interview with ComicBo0k.com during San Diego Comic-Con, replying when asked if the footage show at the convention, which was also the footage shown at D23, would be released for a general audience any time soon:
All I can say is that when the footage comes out we want it to be exactly right so we are taking our time and working on that footage because, as you can imagine, the level of visual effects in this footage are unprecedented. There are certain things in this footage at Comic Con that works for a specific Comic Con audience. But when we go wide to a wide audience, we have to make sure that footage works for a wide audience. We’re hard at work at that right now. I’m not gonna give a timeline for it because I wanna surprise people. Hopefully they’re patient with us.
Sad news for those in outside the comic book elite who were unable to attend Comic-Con and see the Hall H presentation, but Comic-Con attendees are clearly our betters and we must respect that. As for Russo’s request, we promise to be patient if it allows us in the entertainment media to stretch out the anticipation for the trailer’s eventual release through multiple lucrative clickbait articles.
