Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War trailer frame-by-frame analysis


Yup. I’m a Marvel fan. I am buying into the hype for this thing. The 19th instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen, the sequel to 2012’s Avengers Assemble, 2015’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron, featuring damn near every character this universe has put to film. Oh my giddy aunt. Watch the trailer HERE.  Each character as they’re introduced speaks a portion of the ‘There was an idea’ speech Nick Fury gave in Avengers Assemble.

We open in space, with an orange planet. A few small explosions going off on the surface.

Tony Stark sits, surrounded by rubble, holding someone’s hand…

Bruce Banner lies in a crater, presumably having just de-hulked. God knows how he gets there after Thor:Ragnarok but here he is.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.33.39

Sorcerer Supreme Dr Stephen Strange and Master Wong stand looking down at Banner, so we can assume Hulk fell through their roof into the New York Sanctum. Enough to make anyone jumpy…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.33.56

Vision and Scarlet Witch are apparently now living together. We can assume they’re now a couple like their comic counterparts.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.34.13

Wanda looks longingly at Vision…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.34.23

Who’s now in more human form? His Infinity Stone still jammed into the forehead, maybe Paul Bettany got sick of the purple face paint he needed for Vision.

Thor stands looking out through a spaceship’s windows. But which spaceship? That answer comes later…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.35.13

Bruce and an arm of the HulkBuster Iron Man suit (so glad that’s back) stand in Wakanda, glad Bruce has learn to control his Hulk after what he said in Ragnarok.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.36.22

A silver haired Black Widow smiles back at Bruce, loving the hair. Still trying out that budding romance from Age Of Ultron?

We then cut to the Marvel Logo fanfare we’ve seen in every movie since Dr Strange. Ooh I still get the shivers at this thing. Seeing it in the cinema is extraordinary.

Cut to logo.

New York! Still with the Avengers/Stark Tower in the background. No sign of Netflix’s The Defenders who are still part of this universe despite the films ignoring them.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.40.56

“In time, you will know what it’s like to lose” A booing voice narrates.

Wong, Dr Strange, Bruce Banner, and Tony Stark notice something’s going on outside the New York Sanctum. How cool is that lineup?

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.41.11

Stark goes to check it out…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.41.33

“To feel so desperately that you’re right, then to fail all the same” the voice continues.

My Spidey-Senses are starting to tingle…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.41.42

Peter Parker your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, fresh from the success of his first solo MCU movie, starts to think something’s not quite right in New York.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.42.15

But wait! There’s a ruddy great stargate above the city! It’s no Thanoscopter but it’ll do I suppose…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.42.25

Parker looks worryingly at the portal. Spider-Man may be able to help.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.42.52

The other kids on the school bus notice the portal.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.43.08

The portal begins spinning. The city is already in ruins below.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.43.42

“Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.” 

Stark steps forward to greet the invaders. He also apparently has his arc reactor back in his chest…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.44.17

A figure steps through the bodies.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.44.31

Loki emerges, clutching the Tesseract. Thanos is gonna need that magic box, there’s an Infinity Stone inside.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.44.45

And so opens the space portal.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.45.14

The Mad Titan Thanos emerges. Not yet in full battle gear, he’s presuming this is an easy victory then.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.45.29

He surveys the landscape.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.45.47

Spider-Man flies through the air!

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.46.24

And lands on the stargate.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.46.38

How cool is that Iron Spider suit?

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.46.59

A figure stands in a circular structure in space.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.47.10

It’s Thor! Eyepatch and all after the events of Ragnarok. Holding down a giant lever of some sort. I’ve no idea.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.47.39

She throws a glowing spear!

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.47.53

Towards a shadowy figure.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.48.05


Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.48.30

“Evacuate the city, engage all defences. And get this man a shield.” 

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.48.43

Black Panther here to remind you his solo movie is out before Infinity War. It’s got Martin Freeman in too.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.48.50

The silhouette emerges…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.49.06

Steve Rodgers. The disgraced Captain America who’s been hiding out in Wakanda after the events of Civil War protecting The Winter Soldier. Love the beard Chris.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.49.16

Wanda, mid magic casting, looks around and smiles.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.56.18.png

The Hulkbuster jumps forward, doing damage to that poor grass as it goes.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.51.14

Natasha jabs forward with a spear!

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.51.35

Dr Strange magics up some shields, I’ll bet Cumberbatch feels a right fool doing that before the CG is added.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.51.58

A large spire comes crashing down,

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.52.09

And lands with an almighty explosion in Wakanda. Why would Thanos be attacking Wakanda? Maybe the Soul Infinity Stones lies hidden there… We’ll find out in the Black Panther Movie I suppose.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.52.59

Captain Rodgers, looking quite a lot like his comic counterpart Nomad, mid battle looks up and notices –

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.53.11

Black Panther battling an alien thing with four arms. Is this from the comics? I haven’t a clue.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.53.46

Thanos slams Spider-Man to the ground!

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.54.16

“Fun isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe”

You leave Spider-Man alone you bastard.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.54.38

Tony looks on in despair. His dream from Age Of Ultron of the Avengers dead because of him is probably weighing heavily on his mind.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.54.53

Vision (back to purple) is pinned down!

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.55.17

They’re dragging out his forehead Infinity Stone! The stone that powered Loki’s staff in Avengers Assemble, and gave Scarlet Witch her powers.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.55.28

Presumably Vision loses his superpowers, and possibly his life, if the stone is in Thanos’ hands.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.55.39

The blue stone, taken from the Tesseract, joins it’s partner the purple stone in The Infinity Gauntlet. When worn with all Infinity Stones the gauntlet grants the wearer power over the entire universe. Every aspect of life is in their control. The purple stone was last seen in Guardians Of The Galaxy where it was given to Nova Corps to look after. We can assume Thanos finished them off pretty quickly.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.55.58

Pops into place. Thanos now has control over the aspects ‘space’ and ‘power’.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.56.15

“But this (laughs) does put a smile on my face.” 

Thanos lifts his powered up gauntlet aloft.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.56.35

A streamlined Iron Man suit faces Thanos…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 13.56.59

The mad titan he certainly is.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.00.11

And takes down Iron Man with one punch! More powerful than anything The Avengers have ever faced before.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.00.24

Down crashes Tony.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.00.39

Winter Soldier loads a gun, not sure how much good that’ll do against super powered aliens but sure he’s got his talents.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.00.54

Black Panther looks on at the incoming battle.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.01.20

And leads the army of Wakanda. Note Captain America and Winter Soldier behind them on the right.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.01.35

The Falcon flies over the battle, he’s still involved then.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.01.55


Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.02.15

Hordes of alien fighters emerge from the trees. Just broken down Wakanda’s defences maybe?

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.02.35

Lead by Black Panther, the army runs forward.

infinitywarrunninggiphy (6).gif

Now that is cool. War Machine, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, Okoye, Falcon, and Black Panther lead the charging army. Holy hell that shot is cool.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.03.34

We fade into the logo. The Avengers theme still present, probably the greatest track in the whole MCU.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.03.48

“Who the hell are you guys?” 

We fade back in on Thor, the first Avenger to encounter…

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.04.02

The Guardians Of The Galaxy! Fresh from their second movie with new members Teenage Groot and Mantis.

Screenshot 2017-11-29 at 14.04.14

The Avengers: Infinity War. The first part of the finale, coming 2018.

No sign of Hawkeye, or Ant-Man, or The Wasp, or Maria Hill, or Coulson, or any characters from the TV shows, or Valkarie, or Nebula, or any of Thanos’ Black Order. Still a great trailer though.



One thought on “Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War trailer frame-by-frame analysis

  1. Well that’s not true. Proxima Midnight is the one who throws the spear that is caught by Emo Rodgers. So, yes, some of the black Order is there.
