The D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, featured a number of revelations about the hotly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, with Marvel releasing a trailer, a closer look at Thanos and even statues of the Black Order, confirming months of speculation. Now, CBR has close-ups of those Black Order statues.
The images feature Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian (known as Black Dwarf in the comics).
Relatively new to the comics, the Black Order first appeared in 2013’s New Avengers #8 and was created by Jonathan Hickman, Jerome Opeña and Jim Cheung. Supergiant, one of the members of the group, has not appeared in any promotional materials as of yet, so it’s not clear as to whether or not she’ll make it into the film.
The Black Order was a key player in the Infinity storyline, which featured them taking on the Illuminati (then comprised of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Namor, Black Bolt and Mr. Fantastic) in pursuit of the Infinity Stones/Gems.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War boasts a sprawling ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. The film arrives in theaters May 4, 2018, with the untitled sequel opening May 3, 2019.
