Avengers: Infinity War promises to be the biggest Marvel Studios film yet in terms of its sprawling cast, and will bring some heroes face to face for the first time. In a new image from the eagerly anticipated sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy members Rocket Raccoon and Mantis come to the aid of the mighty Thor.
The third Avengers movie sees Thanos and his Black Order finally get their hands dirty in their quest to assemble the Infinity Gauntlet with the six Infinity Stones. Five out of six of these powerful artifacts have already been discovered in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’ll take every hero we’ve met so far to stop the villains from completing the collection. That means we’ll see characters from different corners of the universe, such as Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy, come together.
This new image, which debuted in USA Today, clearly follows the final shot of the Infinity War teaser trailer, in which Chris Hemsworth’s Thor asks the Guardians, “Who the hell are you guys?” If the thunder good looked a little worse for wear after Thor: Ragnarok’s end-credits scene, that’s apparently because he is, requiring some aid from Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff).
Debuting May 4, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War is a production of Marvel Studios directed by Joe and Anthony Russo starring 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. Avengers 4 is expected to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
