Marvel Studios has mastered the art of anticipation, and fans have never hated them more for it. This weekend, the company dropped its first-look footage of Avengers: Infinity War for lucky fans at D23, but the sizzle reel has yet to go public. Just, don’t worry too much about it; The film’s full teaser might be coming way sooner than fans may think.
During an interview with Good Morning America, director Joe Russo gave fans a hint as to when a teaser for the Avengers film could drop.
“Soon. I’ll say soon,” Russo said. “We’re hard at work on a trailer. I don’t want to spoil it for them, but stay tuned. You’re going to get an Infinity War teaser very soon.”
Of course, there are plenty of fans wondering why Marvel Studios doesn't just drop the teaser released at D23. The special footage was concise, and it held more than enough action to nearly break the Internet. D23 attendees were quick to praise the heart-stopping Avengers footage after it aired at Marvel’s annual panel, and ComicBook’s Brandon Davis even wrote up a description of the clip which can be read below.
For now, fans can only guess when the teaser for Avengers: Infinity War will go live. There is a good chance San Diego Comic Con will present a sizzle reel for the movie given the positive reaction its D23 clip got. The studio may simply recut the trailer before giving it to the public. However, fans may be asked to wait just a bit longer if SDCC can’t carry the teaser. Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theaters come November, and the theatrical release would be a perfect place to house the debut trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
You can check out the description of D23’s Avengers clip below:
"'We are arriving,' Mantis said to the Guardians. Teenage Groot in a seat. They describe this place as 'dangerous.' The body of Thor lands on their windshield. His hair is short. Rocket is startled. Mantis wakes him up using her powers. Thor is startled. All of the Guardians look at him, prompting him to ask who they are. The ship zips through the cosmos. Elsewhere, Wanda dodges some white energy, and it breaks a truck. Somewhere else, Loki stands in ruin, presenting the Tesseract to someone. Peter's Spider-Sense takes off as he rides a bus. Tony prepares for battle. He is in space with the Guardians.
"'Fun really isn't something one considers when balancing the universe,' Thanos said. 'This does put a smile on my face.' Gamora looks on, terrified. The Guardians observe ruin in many places across Earth and the cosmos. Thanos warps into this new world. Star-Lord battles him. Strange battles him. Spider-man, in his new suit, battles him. Winter Soldier battles on Earth. Wakanda readies to defend their territory. Cap steps out of the shadows, bearded, with longer hair. Hulkbuster fights.
"Peter looks up at Tony, laying down with his mask off, fighting tears with Tony's hand behind his head, and says, 'I'm sorry, Tony.'
"Black Panther fights an Outrider, appearing as it did Infinity. Thor's head is squeezed by Thanos. Thanos pummels Iron Man in a fight. The Guardians are all defeated. Thanos has assembled the Infinity Gauntlet. He throws a moon at an entire planet."
