Beginning with Marvel Studios’ first outing, Iron Man up until 2018’s ground-breaking Black Panther, “it’s all been leading to this.” Avengers: Infinity War drops its latest trailer just over a month before it hits theaters. What follows next could be considered a fanboy’s dream as new and long-awaited character introductions, such as Star-Lord and Iron Man, Spider-Man and Dr. Strange, finally play out on the big screen.
With the opening narration delivered by his Gamora, Thanos’ quest couldn’t be clearer, “to wipe out half the Universe.” Infinity War seeks to set up the Mad Titan as this generation’s Darth Vader. It should come as no surprise then that the relationship between father and daughter be this movie’s emotional center. Later trailer images of a young Gamora alongside Thanos seem to confirm this. The Guardians of the Galaxy movies have had centered around the complexities of family. Could the Russos be setting up Gamora for that #InfinityFade?
