It’s safe to say the hype for Marvel Studio’s upcoming superhero showdown epic Avengers: Infinity War is off the hook!
A decade of Marvel’s movie exploits have led to Avengers: Infinity War, which will usher in a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Phase 1 of Marvel’s masterplan kicked-off way back in 2008 with Iron Man along with The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and Iron Man 2. These movies led to Marvel’s first ensemble movie – Avengers Assemble.
The final chapter before Avengers: Infinity War will be Black Panther, heading to cinemas on 12th February 2018 before Avengers: Infinity War is released in April.
Let’s take a look at what we know so far about Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel are, of course, very secretive about the plot. But a spoiler-free synopsis finds The Avengers and their superhero allies willing to sacrifice everything in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos (Josh Brolin) before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe as we know it.
