Infinity War is breaking pre-sale tickets records all over the world and now Marvel has released a new TV spot with some interesting footage. The coolest scene has Doctor Strange talking to Tony Stark about time travel and the odds against beating Thanos, and it doesn't look very good. The time travel aspect of Avengers 3 has been speculated about a lot over the last several months and there have been tiny hints sprinkled in some of the promotional material that's been recently released. But this new TV spot is the first time it's been talked about out in the open.
In the new Infinity War spot, Doctor Strange tells Tony Stark that he has traveled forward into the future, "to see all the possible outcomes" of the epic battle with Thanos. Stark asks if any of those outcomes involve the heroes winning, and then the scene cuts. It's an ominous scene and it's sure to make some Marvel fans squirm in their seats. There's going to be some big changes for the MCU after Infinity War, and the Russo Brothers are doing an incredible job of teasing without giving anything a way.
Another new piece of Infinity War footage in this TV spot focuses on the Josh Brolin's Thanos threatening the Avengers. The Mad Titan states that all he has to do is snap his fingers and "all of you would cease to exist," which fits well with the ominous tone of the Doctor Strange scene. Brolin delivers the line with the utmost confidence before saying, "it's a small price to pay for salvation." It appears that Thanos delivers the line when he first comes in contact with Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and Spider-Man from the looks of the background.
The scope of Infinity War looks even more massive when one looks back at all of the footage that has been released so far. Even though not a whole lot has been released, the teases of epic battles and emotional pieces are taking everything that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building upon in the last 10 years and rolling it into one movie that will lead into the still untitled Avengers 4. The stakes have never been higher and that's evident in all of the brief clips for Infinity War that we've seen.
Not only does Infinity War look like one of the biggest movies of all time, but new tracking estimates could make it the biggest movie in U.S. box office history, beating out The Force Awakens in its debut weekend. It's very exciting time to be a Marvel fan and we still have less than a few weeks to go now to finally see the culmination of 10 years of the MCU.
