‘Avengers: Infinity War’ trailer makes much-anticipated debut


It’s finally here!

The long-awaited trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War” debuted Wednesday on “Good Morning America.”

Entertainment Weekly reports the movie opens May 4 and is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who are veterans of the Captain America franchise with “The Winter Soldier” and “Civil War.” But “Infinity War” presents one of the biggest challenges yet — uniting dozens of characters in a single story about the universe being threatened by cosmic death-dealer Thanos (played by Josh Brolin through motion-capture techniques).

Throughout the Marvel films, infinity stones have been a common MacGuffin — that object or device that fuels the plot of a story. There’s one embedded in the forehead of Paul Bettany’s Vision, another within the time-shifting medallion around the neck of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and another — the glowing blue Tesseract cube — that was last seen catching the eye of Loki in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

And the Marvel Universe loves it.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
