Avengers: Infinity War is just around the corner and Marvel Studios has just released some brand-new character posters to prepare us for the beginning of the end. The new posters come after a plea from the Russo Brothers was posted on social media, asking Marvel fans to not spoil anything about the movie when it's released. Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland shared the message yesterday and then shared the new Infinity War character posters today, further adding to the Marvel hype machine.
Robert Downey Jr. was the first of the Avengers to share his Tony Stark character poster and was quickly followed by his Infinity War co-stars. Tom Holland's Iron Spider costume is shown off in closer detail than we've previously seen, and the rest of the posters are just as detailed. In addition to Downey Jr. and Holland, the new Infinity War character posters also feature Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Chris Evans' Captain America, Don Cheadle's War Machine, Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch, Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, Zoe Saldana's Gamora, Letitia Wright's Shuri, Danai Gurira's Okoye, and Paul Bettany's Vision.
Marvel Studios as well as the cast and crew have done an admirable job keeping spoilers from leaking about the upcoming Infinity War and the still untitled Avengers 4. It's pretty remarkable that nothing has leaked at this point and the Russo Brothers aim to keep it that way. Instead of giving us the title for Avengers 4 right off the bat, the directing duo instead warn Marvel fans that they should be "scared" about the forthcoming title. It's these teasers and the interaction with fans on social media that has made the journey to Infinity War a pleasurable experience for fans.
The newly released character posters are a way to hype up the release date, but they also have a dark undertone to them. The deaths! Some of these most beloved comic book characters in history may not make it out of the epic battle with Thanos alive, and it has Marvel fans on edge. The main characters who have the most rumors swirling about them are Captain America and Iron Man at this time, which has been fueled by interviews with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. The actors reveal that they'd like to go out on top, which has led to much speculation that their characters could die.
While the Russo Brothers are asking Marvel fans from all over the world not to spoil anything about Infinity War, spoilers are bound to leak after the directors play some new footage for fans in the coming weeks and after the world premiere on April 23rd. Though no full screenings will be held before the world premiere, some bits of information are bound to find their way online, so beware.
