Dread it, run from it. The Infinity War trailer still arrives

Thanos chokeslamming Spider Man, that is all. Also RIP Vision.

See, that's how you do it DCEU. You gotta earn in with 8+ years of movies, character development and intrigue. You can't just throw tired old tropes and 20 year old comics on the screen and claim its amazing.

I would've hoped the final conflict took place in space, seeing as they are fighting for the fate of the universe and not just Earth. Looks pretty good though, but I do hope we finally, FINALLY get some proper big name deaths.

Eh, maybe for the X-men sure, although Marvel is bringing them in, but Fantastic Four? Even at their best, they're just so goofy. They'd ruin it.

To be fair this is only part 1. Part 2 could easily take place in space.

^ Are you implying the Fantastic Four at its most faithful is even more goofy than Guardians of the Galaxy?

Kinda disappointed in the trailer. On the one hand there are no spoilers which is good. On the other hand there are no surprises what so ever.

MatParker116:
Also RIP Vision.

Uh-huh. Like War Machine in the trailer before this one? Not buying it.

MatParker116:

I kinda don't want vision to die. I would like to see him struggle without the overwhelming power of the soul stone.

Let's hope so. I want some of these heroes to be taken out of there usual surroundings. This first movie might show us the Guardians of the Galaxy on Earth, in part 2 I want Captain America and Spider-Man in space. My favourite episodes of X-Men: The Animated Series were always the ones where they went into space and shit got weird and cosmic.

Samtemdo8:

Yes. Yes I am implying that a wisecracking talking raccoon and a character named Drax the Destroyer are easier to take seriously and have more gravitas than Fantastic Four ever will.

Please read Hickman's Fantastic 4 run. You have no idea how wrong you are.

I can't even handle it. Not even the Star Wars trailers got me this excited--and that's saying something, if you know me. I had tears in my eyes by the end of it. I am on board and ready to see the payoff of these past years.

Hell, my face is still sort of frozen in this creepy, half grin smile just thinking about it.

What a crappy trailer. The movie is going to suck major ass unless they make Thanos' struggle with Death watchable.

You know without his helmet Thanos looks like Hellboy or Marv from Sin City......and yet I say that in a negative way.

Eh, not much to the trailer other than "This Person is in the Movie! This Person is in the Movie! This Person is in the Movie! This Person is in the Movie!..."

Looks neat, but I'm kind of boycotting Disney (a lot of good that'll do haha).

Meh, looks like just another Age of Ultron. And Thanos is a shit villain in general.

Do you want to know how impossible it is to boycott Disney?

I buy Huggies Baby Wipes to clean myself after I use the toilet. And on the package contains pictures of Micky Mouse on it as part of some promotion/advertisment, so essentially I am giving Disney money for the need of Wiping my Ass after I take a shit :P

And really it goes to show how much Disney cares about Micky Mouse this day and age when he is on shit cleaning wipes.

BreakfastMan:

I find Galactus a much more intimidating villain because he Eats Planets to empower himself.

Yeah, and I think there is just a bit more going on with Galactus in general than "big, strong, mean fucker that wants to kill everyone", which is basically all that Thanos is.

And the fact he's litirally a Planet Sized Space Titan which kinda makes challeging him a bit too complicated.

Not really. I've always thought X-Men doesn't work well when it crosses over with Avengers. Fantastic Four I think work better with them.

I know, it's kind of scary. And even if you somehow manage to cut everything that Disney has their tentacles in out of your life, it still wouldn't make any difference in their bottom line. Oh well, nothing I can do but try to avoid their stuff as best I can.

Does the MCU really need a third super genius scientist who got his powers because of an accident? I mean between Strange and Banner, we're covered.

How did the Comic Books themselves got away with crossing over the Fantastic Four with the rest of the Marvel universe?

BreakfastMan:

I disagree so strongly, Thanos is my favorite Marvel villain. He's not as one-note as you think, if you go back to old Marvel Cosmic stuff. Infinity Crusade, Blood and Thunder, the whole Infinity Watch series, there have been lots of times he was on the good side of a big crisis. Hell, after the whole Gauntlet affair, he was allowed to keep the reality stone by the people tasked with guarding them!

The big turning point for him was when he was rejected by Death. He learned that if he killed everything, that would actually be less souls or whatever for his mistress than if life was allowed to continue to propagate. Think about this: he has obtained total omnipotence before, he could have instantly wiped out the entire universe if he wanted to. The interesting thing is that deep down he knows he doesn't deserve to just win like that, which is how he gets defeated. And then he didn't try that again, because he's the only supervillain who actually learns from their mistakes. People talk a lot of mess about 90s comics, but the Marvel Cosmic line was super dope.

Man, fuck modern Marvel. Mr Fantastic used to be THE super genius, he was canonically the most intelligent human for like 50 years. He's the only human who can look at Galactus' tech and know what's going on. Tony Stark is a glorified mechanic who only gets top billing these days because of the movies.

At first I thought it was Nathan Jones and not Josh Brolin at all.

I mean, it looks cool and all but I'm disappointed Thanos has become yet another dude who wants to take over the world with his big CGI army. This is like the third one and thats just the Avengers films. Could we not have Thanos just be a dude capable of taking everyone on by himself? Or give him a few super-tough minions like he occasionally does?

yeah,The second fantastic 4 movie showed us that.
But then again, Guardians of the Galaxy managed to pull Ego off.
And he is pretty much on par with Galactus.

1. I doubt movie Thanos is gonna have as deep a lore background as his comic book counterpart.

2. I hate Tony Stark :P

Some of the lines dropped give me some (probably misguided) hope that they're gonna use this to totally turn the Marvel Cinematic Universe upside down.

I really enjoy the Marvel movies, but right now, I want to see the Avengers lose, but manage to prevent a total checkmate, thus spawning another "cycle" of Marvel movies where some of them are dealing with a half-destroyed Earth, and the other half are now dealing with the Guardians Verse. You know, REALLY shake things up.

I wanna see Rocket Racoon working with Doctor Strange to protect a half-destroyed city. I wanna see Spider Man and Captain America and The Hulk working together in a space scenario! Black Panther and Iron Man in a Mad Maxx style desert chase film! Ant man and Spider man doing a heist across time and space! Etc! :D

But you're assuming that that is his goal, to take over the world. Chances are that he doesn't really care about the world and the real reason he is there is because at least two of the infinity stones are on the planet. The mind stone with Vision and the time stone with Dr Strange.

I am pumped for this it's the pay off to a decade of time and 12 movies spent building to this point and due to contract signing and at least two if not three of the first gen characters wanting to move on from Marvel films chances are if their characters are killed off they aren't going to come back through some sort time reset or other superhero muguffin.

So stoked for MCU to be done with! Then maybe we can move on to something else that I'll initially like then quickly become bored of.

But probably not.

Fucking superheroes.

honestly i cant wait for the inevitable plot line where Bucky becomes the new captain america

I'm not too sure who would replace tony if he kicks the bucket as well but I wouldn't mind seeing a live action version of IronHeart

Yeah, good thing Marvel doesn't use tired old tropes and 20 year old comics.
