Funnier and more character-driven than earlier trailers, this one also introduces us to Thanos’ evil henchmen.
You wanted more Thanos? You got him. The new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War unleashes the Mad Titan in all his glory, setting up the battle between him and the Avengers (and the Guardians of the Galaxy, and assorted hangers-on).
We get a better idea of which characters may team up (Spidey and Doctor Strange; Cap and Black Panther; Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy), with more humor and personal moments than the ominous first trailer. We also get our first look at one of the few new characters in Infinity War‘s massive cast: The Black Order, Thanos’ faithful sidekicks. They appear briefly alongside Loki, with the manipulative Ebony Maw (that’s the alien making the “Shhh” sign at Doctor Strange) showing up around the 1:38 mark.
It looks like Gamora will have a more significant role than before, which makes sense. While she may not be the lead character in her own franchise, she’s the only hero with firsthand experience with Thanos. The trailer includes a flashback to her childhood as Thanos’ daughter, giving personal insight into his fearsome power.
Infinity War comes out on April 27.
