Well, I'm expecting this film to start with a real bang now.

It's also possible that the film opens with Thanos attacking Thor's ship.
Maybe but Thor: Ragnarok was 2017, the only 2017 movie to take place in 2017, and Infinity War supposedly takes place in 2018 so there could be a time skip after the opening scene if that's the case.

Honestly I'm hoping it's Xandar. No offense to Glenn Close or other members of the Nova Core but having an opening seeing them totally get trashed and Thanos taking the stone would make for a more chilling opening as the mad Titan can just totally obliterate the planet in a totally savage way without kind of wimping out on it, like we got in Justice league with Steppenwolf attacking the Amazons and Atlantians. Not to mention we probably wouldn't see it otherwise if it wasn't directly focused on Thanos so I want to see that and see the scene with Thor take place later in the movie. Since like with Doctor Strange having the post credits scene take place 20 minutes in Ragnarok, the Ragnarok teaser can do the same thing with Ragnarok. Though speaking of time differation...

Maybe but Thor: Ragnarok was 2017, the only 2017 movie to take place in 2017, and Infinity War supposedly takes place in 2018 so there could be a time skip after the opening scene if that's the case.
Wait shouldn't Infinity War take place in 2021 as Spider-Man Homecoming takes place apparently in 2020 and obviously Infinity war happens AFTER Homecoming.

Where the heck did you read that? Homecoming is a few months after the events of Civil War so like Fall 2016-ish.

12/23: New look at Iron Man armor on a T-shirt.

12/28: LEGO set spoils a bit more at Thor's new weapon Jarnbjorn.
Kinda surprised they don't just have Thor rebuild a more powerful Mjolnir, though I guess Jarnbjorn might be portrayed as an upgrade here :cool:.
RDJ teases Cap and IM's relationship will take a turn.
I can't imagine this film wouldn't deal with the fallout of Civil War and the issue of Steve and Tony's relationship :ack:.

We can't really have The Avengers reunite without Cap and Iron Man burying the hatchet...
Joe Russo highlights pain and sacrifice as strong themes of the movie.
This should probably be reassuring for anyone worried about the stakes in this movie ;).
Still of Tony, Strange, Wong, and Bruce amid ruins in NYC.
I'm guessing they're staring at Thanos' flagship or the portal he and his troops are coming from :eek:.
A foregone conclusion, but Winter Soldier's new arm will originate from Wakanda.
I wonder how much of an upgrade it will be from his old arm and if there might be some new bells and whistles attached to it :)?

I would guess the availability of components. Mjolnir had that Uru thing and the whole forged-in-a-dying-star thing.

Well, WW2-era HYDRA tech vs. Modern Day Wakandan tech... Me thinks a lot. :p

the point of no return
Russo's promise Thor story continues:

https://movieweb.com/amp/avengers-infinity-war-thor-ragnarok-story/
"I'm going to pick Thor because Thor, we're picking up his story from the end of Thor: Ragnarok and at the end of that film as any fan would know his home planet of Asgard is destroyed, and so the character is in new territory so to speak, because his past has been torn away from him to a degree."
