It is the culmination of one of the biggest gambles in cinematic history. The event that will splinter the future of Marvel’s cinematic universe from everything it has done before. It is the sum of 18 movies, each film setting the stage for what is to come in Avengers: Infinity War.
Boasting the largest and most high-profile ensemble cast in comic book cinema history, Infinity War will threaten to pull on the heartstrings of any movie-goer who spent the last decade on this journey. Fans of the Avengers will get to see them share screen time with the Guardians and Spider-Man, as they take on the Mad Titan Thanos, who alongside his Black Order, is in pursuit of the most dangerous artifacts in the Marvel Universe; the Infinity Stones.
The stones have been scattered across the universe and have been focal points in past films. Their important will be paramount in Infinity War, a film that will change the course of Marvel's cinematic future for years to come.
Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo & Chris Hemsworth will return as the original four Avengers, but which if any, will survive the war? We will have to see for ourselves May 4th 2018.
