Marvel & Disney Unveil “Avengers: Infinity War” Shared Posters

Spring is here (despite it still being cold) and we are just about a month away from the release of “Avengers: Infinity War” and every time there is a reveal of some kind I find myself getting all “geek excited”. About a month ago we shared a whole bunch of Character Art Posters the Entertainment Weekly Magazine showcased “15” different character covers. When the time came for the Final Official Trailer around St. Patrick’s Day I thought that would be it – but I was wrong. Earlier, the studio released “5” more character posters that place a few heroes onto each one. Let’s have a look shall we? I’m starting with the Final Theatrical Poster and the films premise before it continues along.

The Premise: 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. (thanks Wiki).

Marvel Studios Presents: “Avengers: Infinity War” Official Trailer #2

I have to admit that I’ve been on a bit of a Marvel Studios high over the last few weeks after seeing “Black Panther”. It was so good and has made over $1.1 billion dollars at the global box office. Have you seen it yet? If you haven’t you are going to want to because it gives us a nice look at Wakanda which I am sure will play some part in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” film that opens on April 27th. Now all the vibe is going to that film and we’ve just received a second trailer for the film. Let’s start off the Friday properly, and watch…..

By Thanos Decree, The “Avengers: Infinity War” Official Trailer Arrives

I’ve secured the clip along with premise and the massive casting for you below so get on with the checking it out. Don’t worry, I’ll return with some editorial opinion at the close.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it my readers and without being super negative about the topic, THAT IS HOW YOU DO a massive superhero team film. Sure the recently opened “Justice League” film is calling the audience to attention with the catch phrase of “ALL IN” but I have to say that this trailer shows us what “All In” really looks like. I’m psyched and the summer cannot get here fast enough. In reviewing the trailer, I’d have to add that I don’t think we are going to see too many surprise new heroes introduced because there are more than thirty denoted above and unless this film is three hours long the screen time is going to be tight. Oh let’s admit it, this is probably a film that would work as a super extended one since its obviously loaded to the brim with action. It’s all been leading up to this one and what a ride its been so far. I anticipate this trailer shaking up the heads of state at Warner Brothers who no longer seem to be interested in a shared universe as per numerous disclosures in recent weeks. Time to wake up over there people but I digress. So let’s hear from you folks. What do you think about this trailer and how excited are you for the release in 2018 – Are you “All In”? (Sorry I couldn’t resist).

Airing Tonight: “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” Season 2 (9/23/2014)

Have you been keeping up with Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” yet? If not, I understand you since the first season dragged on a little bit and at times was finding me questioning whether or not I wanted to stick with it. Of course I decided to rally behind it since once on the DVR its always easy to zip past the slow parts. Plus I wanted to see how much referencing was being done to the films that are coming out faster than ever. Anyway, the second season begins tonight and I’ve added the poster, premise and casting. Check it out.

Premise: The series follows the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising his role from the films, and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) agents. The season sees Coulson, the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., attempt to rebuild the organization with his team of agents and allies, following its collapse with the infiltration of the terrorist organization Hydra. They are forced to operate in secrecy due to being wanted fugitives, and hunt down the remaining threats of Hydra. Several characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Marvel One-Shots appear throughout the season. (taken from Wikipedia).

Airing Tonight: “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (9/24/2013)

Boy have there been a lot of chances to use the “Movie and TV Mania” category, but I am okay with that because we love to spark you to attention about these shows that interest us and most likely you. This has worked out so far and longer time readers probably realize that I am speaking about the day of broadcasting I’ve done when films that speak directly to our audience demographic are opening up. That being said, tonight is the night for the broadcast television premiere of Josh Whedon’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.”….The acronym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division but it was originally Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division back in the early days. Then it got changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate until its most recent re-branding. For me as a fan of the organization I feel it works. Do you?
