San Diego Comic Con may not have released any public footage of Avengers: Infinity War, but that does not mean it left fans hanging. The event shared an exclusive clip of the film to the lucky attendees at Marvel Studios' Hall H panel, and Brandon Davis was able to provide the following description:
"'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."
If the footage description sounds familiar to you, then you can consider yourself a Marvel Studios diehard. The clip shown at SDCC was the same one touted at D23 earlier this month. At this point, there is no telling when the full teaser trailer will be released to the public, but fans have their suspicions. Marvel will soon premiere Thor: Ragnarok come November, so the release would be the perfect place to debut the Avengers footage to the world.
