If you didn't attend either D23 Expo or Comic-Con International in San Diego, you haven't had the chance to see the Avengers: Infinity War trailer yet, but the posters Marvel has been releasing as part of the convention this weekend are pretty much the next best thing. Each of the mini-posters have shown a small ensemble of the larger cast, but the newest one is the most exciting yet as it features Thanos standing triumphant with the completed Infinity Gauntlet, as the Children of Thanos prepare to strike below.
This is the first good look we've got at The Children of Thanos or, as they're referred to in the comics, The Black Order. The group is made up of Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Black Dwarf and The Ebony Maw and will likely give The Avengers more than they can handle before the Earth's Mightest Heroes even have the chance to get to the big boss. There's no word yet as to who is playing each of the Children of Thanos or why their fifth member Supergiant was omitted from the cinematic adaptation, but no doubt more information will continue to flow as we head towards the 2018 release date.
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.
