Robert Downey Jr. has warned fans that Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War will deliver on its promise of being a high-stakes battle.
"Believe me, I’m tired of every movie, you know, “It’s the end! It’s Armageddon! It’s the Be All, End All, Forever!” And then it’s … not," he told Entertainment Weekly. "This one actually is. They’re not kidding. This is a heads-will-roll scenario."
Marvel Studios has spent a lot a time building up Infinity War as the culmination of 10 years of storytelling that begin in 2008 with Iron Man. Studio President Kevin Feige previously warned that, “Within the first five minutes of Infinity War, people will understand why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."
Thanos has even been likened to Darth Vader in his quest for the Infinity Stones, and, as the debut trailer hinted, the Mad Titan may well be bringing a lot of death to the MCU, making Downey's words all the more ominous.
