Marvel teased some more of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War during the Super Bowl, and I just have one or two questions:
What is the runtime on this going to be: Three hours? The Russo brothers are going to have their hands full to balance the screen time for all the heroes to prevent complaints that “such-and-so was just a cameo,” and the like. That would be a shame.
Thanos looks better here than he did in the earlier trailer, but someone pointed out that may be a trick of the light, so the jury is still out on that one.
Steve Rogers’/Captain America’s/Nomad’s new Wakandan shield certainly looks cool, but its functionality will be 100% NOT what we—or he, for that matter—is used to. Will it impact his fighting style/effectiveness? We shall see.
A couple of times I thought the CGI looked a bit… wonky. I hope that’s a result of them not actually being 100% completed yet.
If Tom Holland can’t keep a secret about the movie, it’s just a reflection of the fact Spider-Man can’t keep his damned mask on. It’s Peter Parker in Spider-Man pajamas in this footage, too, lol. The mask is there for a reason, Pete!
Overall, I’ve got enough faith in Marvel, and the Russo Brothers, to be worried about this film at a level of approximately 3%. Why 3%? Because you never really know, and unlike some people, if this film manages, somehow, to fall into that 3%, I’ll be ready to talk about it honestly.
But I don’t expect that to happen.
Definitely hoping for an early screening on this one, as well.
See you in May!
