The latest Avengers: Infinity War sneak peek shows Black Panther breakout Mbaku joining the Avengers to fight Thanos. It also has a very deep-voiced Thor confronting the Guardians of the Galaxy, seeking their help for this galaxy wide threat.
Thor, or "God Man," as Drax the Destroyer likes to call him, is a pretty big dude and it seems that Star-Lord might have a bit of an inferiority complex going on in the new Avengers: Infinity War TV spot that was just released. While the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios kept a pretty tight lid on any footage from the highly anticipated movie for so long, the promotional campaign is in full swing, with new clips released almost daily now, featuring bits of new scenes to stoke the hype train. As per usual, the new TV spot is made up of old footage mixed with new scenes and dialogue.
We have previously seen Thor when he first meets up with the Guardians of the Galaxy on the Milano. Thor is unconscious on a table while Drax and Gamora admire his physique, which causes Star-Lord to get a little jealous. Now, that jealousy manifests in a new way after Thor asks the Guardians to join him and the Avengers on Earth. Star-Lord is skeptical and begins speaking in a deeper voice like Thor's, only to get called out by Rocket Raccoon and the rest of the gang.
The new clip of Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy from Infinity War shows how well James Gunn's style mixes with the new version of Thor that Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi created for Ragnarok. The absurd humor works really well in the small bit of footage that has been shown and will more than likely go a long way in balancing the darkness that Thanos brings to the Avengers during the course of the movie. Star-Lord's initial humorous reluctance to join the team pops up again in another recently released clip that features him shooting down one of Tony Stark's plans.
The rest of the new Infinity War TV spot features some new dialogue from Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange speaking about the evil power of Thanos and then some new footage of Wakanda getting torn apart. Again, like most of the previously released clips, it has dark undertones that are brightened when Thor asks the Guardians to join the Avengers. Pairing Thor with the Guardians has to be one of the better decisions that the Russo Brothers have made for Infinity War.
While we've been teased with some humor in Infinity War, we've also been warned that this is the beginning of the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Some of the world's most beloved superheroes will not make it out of the battle with Thanos alive, which is a risky decision to make. Infinity War is ten years of the MCU and a fresh start for the next phase, which will see some major changes. The movie is now only a few weeks away and you can check out the latest TV spot below, thanks to ComicBook's YouTube channel.
