Avengers: Infinity War Gets An Updated Logo

17 October 2017 4:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige isn’t one to divulge too much, too soon – hence the level of secrecy swirling around Phase 4 – but when pressed about the status of Avengers: Infinity War‘s first teaser, Feige confirmed that said promo should be online “before the end of the year.” And not much else.

Alas, one would assume that Marvel will piggyback on Thor: Ragnarok‘s release in November, particularly when you consider that December belongs to a little-known sequel called Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Besides, the Powers That Be over at Marvel have a long track record of attaching trailers to fellow McU movies – think of how Ragnarok‘s initial teaser released in and around the same corridor as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 earlier in the year. And then there’s the launch of Justice League (November 17th) to consider.

So, there’s plenty of chances for »

Thanos Wields The Gauntlet On New Avengers: Infinity War Promo Art

10 October 2017 8:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally step out of the shadows and take on the combined forces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After various teaser appearances and cameos dating all the way back to 2012’s The Avengers, there’s a lot of hype for the Mad Titan and he’s all set to be the biggest, baddest enemy the heroes of the Marvel universe have ever faced. We’re sure that the titular team will ultimately be able to take him down, but they’re certainly going to have a tough time doing so.

Not only will Thanos have the Black Order there to help him, but he’ll also be in possession of the incredibly powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which will be fully equipped by the time the film rolls around. It’ll essentially allow the uber villain to wreak havoc and do just about anything he wants, and »

Avengers: Infinity War Promo Art Shows Off Captain America, Doctor Strange And More

8 October 2017 5:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though we were supposed to see the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War with the premiere of Inhumans, or at least, there were rumors pointing to that happening, September 29th has now come and gone and we still don’t have anything. It’s likely to remain that way for a little while longer, too, after Marvel’s Louis D’Esposito took to Twitter earlier today to update fans on the status of the preview, saying that it’s not even done yet.

So, while we continue to wait – impatiently, might we add – some new promo art has surfaced that might just help tide us over until that first bit of footage arrives. It’s low-res and hardly the most exciting look at the film, but down in the gallery below you’ll see some photos that have been doing the rounds on Reddit lately, showing off characters like Captain America, »

Dave Bautista Loves What He’s Seen Of Avengers: Infinity War So Far

4 October 2017 2:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sixteen films into the McU, and Marvel’s prized asset shows no sign of slowing down – if anything, this most ambitious of cinematic universes is only going in one direction.

With pedal firmly on metal, the studio is slowly beginning to prepare for the November launch of Thor: Ragnarok which, perhaps more so than any other Marvel film before it, serves as a galactic primer for Avengers: Infinity War. Headed up by directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Infinity War is a titanic blockbuster that looks set to dial things up to 11, and in the fallout of the buzz that Marvel’s Sdcc panel created this summer, Joe Russo has been keeping fans on a knife-edge by teasing all of the many “intense surprises” in store.

Now, with the first trailer said to be arriving very soon (perhaps with Ragnarok?), excitement is beginning to reach a fever pitch and here to »

The Avengers Assemble One Last Time On Stunning Fan-Made Infinity War Poster

27 September 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Acting as the culmination of just about everything that we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, Avengers: Infinity War is not only going to be an absolutely massive motion picture, but it’s probably also the most important film that the studio’s ever made. Set to bring together nearly all of the franchise’s characters as they unite to take on Thanos, it’s going to be an event movie unlike any other and could just be one of the biggest blockbusters of all-time.

So, with that in mind, you’d think that Marvel would want to rev up the promotional machine well in advance to ensure that the hype levels are high as we inch closer and closer to Infinity War‘s release, right? Well, unfortunately, that hasn’t exactly been the case. Those who were lucky enough to attend San Diego Comic-Con got a taste of the first trailer, »

New Avengers: Infinity War Posters Continue To Tease Us

23 September 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there a bigger, more impressive blockbuster currently in the works than Avengers: Infinity War?

Sure, you have Warner’s imminent Justice League and the mooted Godzilla Vs. Kong, but in the realm of Hollywood’s shared universes, Infinity War stands head and burly shoulders above the rest because it’s about to execute on a vision that began almost ten years ago with the release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. Toss in a post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, now an McU mainstay, and the rest is history.

Indeed, when counting the yet-to-be-released Thor: Ragnarok and Ryan Coogler’s Black PantherAvengers: Infinity War will be the 19th instalment in Marvel’s grand universe, with everyone involved deeming Iw to be a superhero movie unlike any other. And even from the outside looking in, few would contest such a tantalizing claim.

But with the flick just eight months away now, »

Avengers: Infinity War Has The Most Exciting Plotline For Vision And Scarlet Witch

1 September 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

San Diego Comic-Con has now come and gone for another year, but fans are still reeling from what was an overwhelming weekend of content, be it in the form of new trailers, photos, posters, etc. for most of Hollywood’s biggest upcoming releases. Undoubtedly, one of the titles to draw the most attention – and not surprisingly – was Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, the superhero film to end all superhero films.

From what we understand, nearly every character still breathing in the McU will be returning for the pic, including Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who are expected to have fairly large roles in the blockbuster. In fact, we’ve already had set photos (see the gallery below) showing the two getting very close indeed, with a few of the shots suggesting that Vision will have his Infinity Stone removed, causing him to assume a more human form. »

Avengers: Infinity War Is “Absolutely Mind-Blowing”

25 August 2017 3:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Thor: Ragnarok quickly approaching, and looking to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s strongest efforts to date, might we add, it’s almost about time to start getting excited for the studio’s 2018 slate. And while projects like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Black Panther are certainly worth paying attention to, it’s undoubtedly Avengers: Infinity War that’s going to be hogging the lion’s share of the spotlight come next year.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s landmark event movie is currently on course for a release on May 4th, 2018, and it’ll herald the advent of the Mad Titan and his squadron of galactic accomplices. Yes, after much foreshadowing, we know Thanos to be the primary antagonist of the Russo Brothers’ ensemble piece, who wages an Infinity War to bring ‘balance’ back to the universe.

On board for the role of the mega villain is none other than Josh Brolin, »

A Lot Of Avengers: Infinity War Will Take Place On Earth

29 July 2017 5:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

San Diego Comic-Con has now come and gone for another year, but fans are still reeling from what was an overwhelming weekend of content, be it in the form of new trailers, photos, posters, etc. for most of Hollywood’s biggest upcoming releases. Undoubtedly, one of the titles to draw the most attention – and not surprisingly – was Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, the superhero film to end all superhero films.

As you surely know by now, Thanos is set to be the big bad of the movie, and with the Guardians of the Galaxy also getting in on the fun, you’d think that a lot of the action will take place in space, right? Well, maybe not. We’ll no doubt see our merry band of heroes leaving Earth for at least part of the film, that much has been confirmed, but according to Joe Russo, »

4 June 2017 7:50 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Articles suggested Wilson had been untruthful about being related to Walt Disney and getting exclusive access to Disneyland
