Avengers: Infinity War is only just over a month away and we are barely holding ourselves together due to the excitement.
Ever since the superhero team-up blockbuster was announced we’ve been eager to get our hands on any footage, photos or plot details that will give us a taste of what is to come.
Marvel though are clever keeping their cards close to their chest but they’ve just dropped a brand new trailer to get us ready for war.
You can watch the Avengers assemble in the video below:

If you have been hiding under a rock the past few years then you have missed out on all the fun as the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been crushing it with the likes of Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther.
Infinity War though is their most ambitious project yet with Marvel first teasing fans with big baddie Thanos in 2012.
Directed by the Russo Brothers, the first part of the film is due to be released next month with the second half coming in May 2019.
Pretty much every single superhero ever featured in the MCU will appear in Infinity War including Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy and so the list continues.
Fan favourites including Loki, The Collector and Pepper Potts will also feature and so there really should be something there for every fan.
Not only that, but the sheer magnitude of the movie means it may be one of the biggest ever in history when it comes to the box office.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige, the man with the best job in the world aka President of Marvel Studios, spoke about the 10-year-long journey to Infinity War.
Revealing that everything will change after these films, he said:
With Infinity War, it’s coming to a climax, coming to a conclusion of seeds with all the MacGuffins in various movies, and with Untitled Avengers a year later, bringing what will be that first 22 movie arc to a finality.
That doesn’t mean there are no movies after that. Of course not. It means the movies after that will be changed.
Again, it goes to the comics. Every great event in the 50 plus years of publishing history would have an impact on the individual books going forward after that.
You start to think differently about how the characters are interacting, what character’s stories are coming to a close, and what character’s stories are only just beginning. Those stories will continue.
Since the release of the trailer, there have been rumours circulating that Infinity War will see the death of one or a few main characters.
Both the Russo Brothers and Feige have warned fans heartbreak can be expected from the next instalment in the MCU.
In his recent interview, Feige revealed:
The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us, in large part because you don’t see it that often in this particular genre.
People always will jump to ‘death’. That’s not necessarily what we’re talking about. I talk a lot, because I’m a big-a** nerd, about Star Trek: The Next Generation, All Good Things.
That to me is one of the best series finales ever. That wasn’t about death. Picard went and played poker with the crew, something he should have done a long time ago, right?
I mean, I could always list off the characters that we’ve killed in our movies that haven’t come back, but the big ones, which I know they’re looking at…?
I would just say, yes. People need to be careful what they wish for.
In the comic books, Thanos ends up killing everyone, so who knows which characters will be on his hit list for the film?
Just please don’t let it be Captain America!
Avengers: Infinity War will hit UK cinemas on April 26 and US theatres on April 27.
