    Anyone who hasn't seen the leaked trailer, scoured the internet until you find it. It's so fittingly epic that it made my toes curl. Thor's introduction to the Guardians had me in fits of laughter

    The leaked trailer is really awful quality, though. I wish they'd just release the trailer since it's been leaked - you can't put the genie back into the bottle. (Despite Disney's best attempts)

    This. I can't be bothered to look for a shit quality video that's probably going to be released later this year anyway.

    I'm not buying this. It's more likely that they will drop the "phase" grouping but new movies will be made.

    Also, the official Infinity War poster:

    I'd assumed Captain Marvel would be on the poster - she's making her debut in this film, right? Perhaps they haven't finalised the look yet or something.

    Which is exactly what I meant. That there is not going to be phases and with some actors finishing their contracts, A4 is the end of MCU as it was when they were involved from its beginning.

    Three things on that poster that caught my attention.

    Cap has a beard.

    Widow is a platinum blonde.

    Implied Vision/Wanda ship?

    They were married for a bit in the comics, and there were a couple of hints that way in Civil War, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them going that direction.

    Widow no longer a red head? Scrap everything!

    Don't be too butthurt about Disney taking down the trailers, it was a exclusive to those that went to D23 right? Go next time and you can see it live, or just wait like a sane person...

    Regarding female heroes, as much as it pains me to say it because I adore Tom Holland and the new Spidey stuff, MAN it would have been ballsy and fantastic if they'd just used SpiderGwen...

    Oh, and how the fuck does Ruffalo age out of the Hulk role? It's 70% cgi...

    I doubt they have a real problem with it. The trailers are there to make people want to see the film and if they are excited by bad quality leaks then all the better.

    Unless you're WB then you start threating it's the last time you bring any exclusive footage anywhere. :p

    EDIT:

    AS someone pointed out elsewhere, we've come a long way.

    You know, I wonder if the ending of the latest season of Agents of SHIELD will be in any way connected to the Skrulls from Captain Marvel.

    At the very least, the ending gives a very Agents of SWORD vibe so it isn't impossible.

    Blasphemy! Such bravado is unbecoming of a civilized individual.

    Yes, that'd be the case.

    I can see Peter wearing the other infinity gauntlet, if he is strong enough to hold one of the stones with his bare hands, then something designed to hold multiple stones is sure to help him. It might be the only weapon strong enough to counter thanos.

    I have a theory that the reason why Peter was the only one of ego children to express powers is that his mother had inhuman genes. The Kree attempted their experiments on many worlds, but only succeeded on earth. The same for ego. So I wonder if Peter is a successful hybrid, because his mom was one already one. So when he visits earth, he get exposed to terrigen, and gain powers. That might provide the edge needed when going up against thanos,

    That's a pretty interesting theory - in universe we don't have anything on his parents, so maybe Ego was his dad...

    He is. That was the plot of GotG2. His mum randomly having powers as well doesn't really seem likely, but it's not impossible, I suppose.
