Marvel fans are known to be quite passionate about their superheroes - tickets for a 31-hour marathon leading up to Avengers: Infinity War are selling like hot cakes - but one fan's excitement resulted in him going viral on social media. I need you invested in this.
Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, Peter Dinklage and Josh Brolin.
In my not-so-patient state, I chose to pick up Infinity War: Prelude, a comic written by Will Corona Pilgrim, with art by Tigh Walker and Jorge Fornés, colors by Chris O'Halloran, and letters by Travis Lanham.
If Kevin Feige and Bob Iger are to be believed, Avengers: Infinity War and its so-far unnamed sequel aren't just an ending (to the first decade of the MCU), but are also a crossroads for the franchise.More news: Kentucky governor 'guarantees' children sexually assaulted, poisoned due to school closures
After the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the team is also joined by new members Mantis played by Pom Klementieff and by Karen Gillan's vengeful Nebula, whose personal vendetta against Thanos has forced her to team up with her estranged sister Gamora. EW will look back at one Marvel movie a week, every week, to reassess its powers and hopefully answer important questions along the way like "What was The Incredible Hulk?".
Marvel has teased Thanos' involvement in the MCU ever since his appearance at the end of 2012's The Avengers. Images of him wearing new costume have also leaked.
Building off of the ten years of Easter eggs, post credit scenes and cameos, Infinity War finally sees the Avengers and Guardian's face off against supervillain Thanos.
What might happen in Infinity War? The more we learn about exactly what the Avengers are up against, the less and less likely that it seems all of our heroes will make it out alive.
Actor Rana Daggubati, adds, "I've grown up reading Marvel Comics and Marvel movies with their intricately woven story lines have been some of my favourite movies to watch".
