    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.

    Ah, I hadn't thought of that. :p

    I guess at most we'd get a flashback scene.

    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...

    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.

    12/19: Renner hints he gets to do a lot of 'wondrous things' with Hawkeye that's he's always wanted to do.

    March 2018 solicitations are released:
    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.

    I really need to see this winged armor in action! I bet it'll be used towards the end of the film, though.

    He can already fly fast. What will the wings do?

    The wings seem wider then his usual back jets, so I imagine they give him a greater boost of speed, and also frees up his arms to fire Repulsors and those arm cannons :cool:.

    I was wondering what Mantis would actually get to contribute here, but I guess she can help wake Thor up :p.

    Wit that hair and green jacket, Widow reminds me a lot of Rogue from the X-Men :sweat:.

    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:.
    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...
    This should probably be reassuring for anyone worried about the stakes in this movie ;).
    I'm guessing they're staring at Thanos' flagship or the portal he and his troops are coming from :eek:.
    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

    It should also be interesting given Thor was one of the only two Avengers the Russo's didn't get a chance with in Civil War (the other being Hulk) :).

    Someone figured out the location of the giant stargate in the trailer. It's hovering over Greenwich Village at West 4th and 10th Streets so when Tony is outside the Sanctum he's looking in the opposite direction at something else.
