They've finally given us an official trailer...and I won't say it's the trailer to end all trailers, but it is damn good.

They just bumped up the movie's release date from May 4th to April 27th, which makes it even more unlikely that Black Panther will be out on video before then...so if you want to be caught up on everything by the time Infinity War hits, you'd best move fast.

The highly-anticipated new trailer has been released.



Yeah, that was pretty damn cool.

Okay, I'm practically bursting at the seams to avoid spoiling anything, but I promise I won't...at least for now.

What I will say is that my expectations for this movie were extraordinarily high, and I'll be damned if it didn't meet every single one of them.

All right, I'm going to assume by now that most of you have seen Infinity War. So let's talk about it.

As the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, the climax that the previous eighteen movies were building up to, it's no exaggeration to say that a lot of things about this film were really unprecedented. The sheer size, scope and scale of it, obviously, with the enormous cast of previously established characters finally brought together to face a threat unlike any seen before. And even knowing how powerful and unstoppable Thanos was, I must confess that I was unprepared for the full extent of the carnage he would ultimately unleash.

So, to put it very directly, what happens is...
[Reveal] Spoiler: Avengers: Infinity War
Thanos wins.

"Okay," you say, "that's interesting, but not exactly unprecedented. After all, didn't Emperor Palpatine ultimately win in Revenge of the Sith? The heroes will surely rally again in the next movie."

Well, that's the thing. By "winning", I mean Thanos accomplished his ultimate goal. And his ultimate goal was to eradicate half of all life in the universe.

Yeah.


Even though I still haven't updated the overall roster (does anyone even care? :| ), let's go ahead and run down a "before and after" list of the current major characters of the MCU, to illustrate the full consequences of Infinity War.
