Entertainment Weekly has shared some new images from Avengers: Infinity War. Some of them are shots from the trailer from different angles, but some of them — such as this first one — shows part of a scene that only some people have seen.
What do you do with the mad that you feel? If you’re Thanos, you use the purple and blue Infinity Stones to rip a moon out of orbit and hurl it against the ground like a dinner plate. While fans have speculated that this may be devastation on Xandar, where the Nova Corps was guarding the purple power stone from the Orb, Marvel tells EW this shot is actually on Titan, the ruined home world of Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War deals with its massive cast of heroes by breaking them up into teams. This is one of them, with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, summoned by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and warrior-librarian Wong (Benedict Wong). Then Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner crashes back to Earth just as a strange ship arrives over New York.
The last we saw Don Cheadle’s Col. Rhodes, he was paralyzed after crashing in the War Machine armor. Here we see him walking again, with the help of what looks like Stark tech. He stands with friends, turned foes, who are now allies again: Chris Evans’ Captain America and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, who have been fugitives since Civil War.
Fans of Wakandan technology chief Shuri will be happy to know she’s a key part of Infinity War, seen here meeting with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner.
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man springs to action during a class field trip when he spots a strange Q-Ship hovering over New York City. With the help of the Iron Spider armor, he manages to clamor onto the ominous machine.
Before the end of Thor: Ragnarok, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki managed to pocket the blue Space Stone locked away in Asgard’s archive. This is the object Thanos sent him to retrieve in the original Avengers, and he not only failed — he lost the staff that contained the yellow Mind Stone (now giving life to Paul Bettany’s Vision). We know Thanos collects the Space Stone early in Infinity War, so Loki has likely settled his account. Partially.
The Guardians split up, with Gamora leading her own mission and Thor teaming with teen Groot and Rocket Raccoon on a quest of another nature. Ultimately, all roads in Infinity War lead to one place …
That’s Winston Duke’s M’Baku, again fighting alongside his king, Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, with Captain America and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier (now known as White Wolf to his Wakandan caregivers) standing at attention among soldiers from the border tribe. Now that Wakanda has opened up to the world, the fantastical nation needs to protect it.
That first picture is probably the scene that everyone who saw the D23 and Comic-Con International footage could not stop talking about! Thanos pulls a moon from the sky! It’s nice to get confirmation that this isn’t Earth though because that would be a wee bit of a problem.
Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
