Avengers: Infinity War is just a few weeks away and fans are finding it hard to keep calm. There are endless aspects to the film that make it one of the greatest Marvel offerings on screen till date. The ensemble cast, the most dangerous super villain of all time coupled with amazing CGI and an epic scene featuring 40 superheroes are just a few highlights! Let’s take a look at more:
1. The Greatest War in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
We are aware that the intergalactic tyrant named Thanos is out to wreak havoc. His entire plan depends on stealing all the Infinity Stones. If he succeeds, there would be no stopping him from gaining omnipotent and omniscient power! In short, his success would spell disaster for everything that exists. Stopping this plan and its mastermind is one challenge that the Avengers have never faced before.
2. Appearance of The Black Order
If Thanos sounded sinister, matters are about to get worse. The crazed-out alien is bringing a back-up in the form of The Black Order! For those unfamiliar with them, The Black Order is an entire army of powerful alien villains who specialize in attacking entire planets to establish their empire! These unimaginable villains have been a recurring threat to the MCU and its protectors consistently. However, Avengers: Infinity War is the first time they would make a full-fledged appearance on-screen.
Here are a few highlights:
Ebony Maw: A genius with superhuman abilities of persuasion and mind control!
Black Dwarf: A super-strong warrior with impenetrable skin.
Proxima Midnight: Known for his characteristic “toxic light.”
Supergiant: An evil telepath!
Corvus Glaive: Possesses a sharp pike that literally makes him immortal!
And there are more of them!
3. The Culminated Specialties Of Multiple Superheroes
The Avengers are facing their greatest enemy ever. It means that they would need stronger resources this time. That is the reason why so many superheroes are being called upon for their individual abilities. Just like the five senses contribute towards the strength of a species, the culminated powers of the superheroes is required to win this war!
Here are a few highlights:
Captain America: A super soldier with heightened agility, endurance, speed and strength along with other superior bodily functions that make him invincible.
Iron Man: All his powers lie in his super-suit! Loaded with extraordinary weapons, this suit enables him to fly and grants him superhuman strength.
The Hulk: Limitless physical strength!
Black Widow: A martial-artist at the core, she has an enhanced immune system and mastery over the use of complex weapons.
Scarlet Witch: Possesses magical abilities of hypnosis and telekinesis.
Dr. Strange: Master of the Mystic Arts, this former neurosurgeon can convert any object into energies that he can use as highly destructive weapons.
Spiderman: Possesses spider-like, superhuman reflexes, strength, flexibility and the ability to cling to surfaces like a magnet. His suit is an important tool to enhance his control over his powers.
White Wolf: An enhanced assassin!
Black Panther: Rigorously trained in combat, the Black Panther’s superpowers lie in his bullet-proof suit that absorbs energy for redistribution.
Though this is not the first time when all the superheroes are pooling in their specialties against a common enemy, it is certainly the first time when more than one faction is coming together: The core team of Avengers, the entire Rogers’ faction and of course, Guardians of the Galaxy!
4. The Connection With Guardians of the Galaxy
It is now clear why our superheroes are so so desperate to indulge in a war against the most dangerous villain of all time. But doing so is impossible without the extra information and support that the Guardians can offer. It is interesting to observe that the backstory for this inevitable war was already built up in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy with the mention of the Infinity Stones.
Also, Thanos is the main connection between the Guardians and the Avengers. After all, it is Gamora, from the Guardians who explains everything about Thanos to Tony Stark in the trailer. In other words, the Avengers are practically unaware about the danger until it is pointed out by the Guardians.
5. Induction of New Superheroes
Avengers: Infinity War is the first film that will bring in Spiderman into the team. In addition to that, this is also the first time when the likes of Dr. Strange, White Wolf and the Black Panther would fight together.
6. The Long Wait!
It was 2015 when the last Avengers film was released. Since then, the anticipation for the next one has been constantly rising. Though the series was introduced in 2012, there are a total of 18 films that have led to the events of the Infinity War! Not only is this the perfect explanation for every unanswered question so far but also, a look at the bigger picture. Undoubtedly, Avengers: Infinity War will connect every thread from the past Marvel films while giving a new direction to the future ones!
7. The Longest Run Time!
So far, Captain America: Civil War has held the record of the longest run-time when it comes to Marvel films. However, the latter’s 2 hours and 27 minutes is all set to be overtaken by Infinity War which has a run time of 2 hours and 40 mins!
