‘Avengers: Infinity War’ First Trailer

Holy smokes, artichokes. I knew what to expect and still, I wasn’t prepared. I have chills. The hairs are standing up on my arms and the back of my neck. My spidey-sense is tingling.

This trailer has everything. All your favorite heroes are there, the old and the new. New alliances are forged and old ones restored. It’s only a first trailer and wisdom reminds us not to judge a book by its cover, fast food by it’s commercials, or a movie by it’s trailer. That said, Marvel has made very few missteps heretofore and have earned the benefit of the doubt.

It looks incredible. The rest of the MCU pales in comparison. There’s a bad so big it makes all other bads seem laughable. I’m excited. And I’m scared. Something unspoken in these two-and-a-half minutes implies this one is going to hurt, but in that way that poking a bruise hurts, painful yet so satisfying.

Just watch it. Then watch it again. Ouch. Mmm.
