Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War trailer might have smashed viewership records, but one fan took their Marvel commitment to a whole new level with a shot-by-shot recreation of the trailer using action figures.
The recreated trailer, which is the product of Markez Films, actually addresses one of fans’ biggest complaints about the upcoming movie – Thanos. The CGI version of Josh Brolin’s Thanos was much-maligned when he first appeared in all his smug, conquering glory. The recreated trailer brings back the purple, yellow and blue Thanos comic book fans know and love, without the weird goatee chin markings.
The action figure trailer does retain one of the original trailer’s most talked about features, though. That’s right, Captain America’s beard is back and in full force. At least we can sleep comfortably at night knowing that, if Cap has to take on hordes of alien invaders, whether as an action figure or in the flesh, he’ll be wearing his beautiful recluse beard when he does.
