Last night I was busy doing things totally unrelated to football. I took a break, though, when I was paged on Facebook to give my thoughts on the new Infinity War trailer. I watched it a few dozen times and I have so many questions.
Why is Groot playing video games? Doesn’t he know what Thanos is up to right now?
How the heck did I miss Cap’s double arm shields in the first trailer?
Vision is still alive (but looking sick) without the Mind Stone? Does that mean he actually survives through the whole movie? And who is that behind Cap?
If you’re obsessing over Infinity War like I am, join us in the Countdown To Infinity War. Mama’s Geeky and I are live tweeting an MCU movie every week. We even have a Twitter Party coming up next month! (Details coming soon!)
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
Avengers: Infinity War releases in U.S. theaters on May 4, 2018.
As if the Infinity War trailer wasn’t enough to distract me for the rest of the night, we also got a first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story.
And a few seconds of Lando Calrissian basically broke the internet. But…that was just the teaser of the teaser.
The official Solo teaser trailer is finally here. It’s been pretty well established that Han Solo was the first love of my life. I’m prepared to be pretty hard on this movie, but it looks kind of amazing.
And because today is just already completely overwhelming, we got new Solo posters, too. Yeah…I’m really, really, really looking forward to May. And I guess that brings me to my main question about Solo. Why is it opening on Memorial Day and why is Infinity War opening on May 4? I’m kind of known as the release date Google among my friends, so when I’m asked when Infinity War is coming out, it’s next to impossible for me to not say “May the 4th (be with you.)” But release date quibbles and prior Han Solo-obsessions aside, I’m totally looking forward to seeing Solo. On May 25th. Not May 4th. Because I’ll be busy with Infinity War then.
