We know that we’ll be seeing the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War before the end of the year, and after leaking a few images last week (which have since been deleted), Reddit user The Ascended Ancient has now shared a partial description of said trailer. Now, Reddit isn’t always the most reliable source, but considering the images were genuine, there’s no reason to suspect this isn’t either…
Loki gives the tesseract to Thanos to be spared when Thanos attacks Thor’s ship. Thor, Hulk, and company take on the the Black Order while their ship tries to flee. The fight goes bad and Thor is left dangling in space until discovered by the Guardians.
The Collector’s place is raided and attacked by the Black Order. The Guardians fail to stop them and the reality gem is brought to Thanos.
Thanos is missing the last and important gem, the soul gem. All the avengers assemble to protect it, which is inside Heimdall.
Poor Heimdall! It doesn’t sound like things are going to go too well for him…
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
