Marvel has released some brand new posters for Avengers: Infinity War. Previously, Marvel gave us a rather simple logo poster for the epic event and, more recently, they unleashed a poster that features nearly every Major MCU character, with Thanos at its center. This handful of new posters divides the heroes of the Marvel universe into teams, which is how they're primarily going to be featured in Infinity war. To the chagrin of many fans, none of these posters include Hawkeye, who is still nowhere to be found in the marketing for this movie.
Putting Hawkeye aside for a second, these posters are quite good and are going to help build just a bit more hype for Avengers: Infinity war, which arrives in theaters a month from now on April 27. Marvel recently bumped up the release date by a week, as the movie was originally scheduled to arrive on May 4. That could be so that Disney doesn't wind up competing too heavily with themselves when Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives on May 25. Whatever the case may be, nobody is upset that the highly-anticipated Avengers 3 is arriving in theaters earlier than we previously expected.
These new posters showcase the teams that we'll be seeing in Infinity War. There's the Tony Stark, Doctor Strange, Wong and Spider-Man group. In the trailers, we've seen Bruce Banner with that bunch, but he's Hulked up with Black Widow, Black Panther and Okoye here. There's also a poster with Captain America, Bucky, Black Panther's sister Shuri, Nebula and Gamora. Then we've got Scarlet Witch, Vision, Falcon and War Machine together, as well as Thor alongside Guardians of the Galaxy members Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and teenage Groot.
That's all good and well, but Marvel really has many wondering where Hawkeye is at. We know he's going to be in Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Avengers 4 next year, but why hasn't he been featured in any of the trailers or posters? Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have promised that he's in the movie and on his own, unique path following the events of Captain America: Civil War. But it's still strange that he's literally not been spotted anywhere. He was even left out of the series of Infinity War magazine covers that Entertainment Weekly released. Maybe his role in the movie is truly going to be such a big surprise that they can't afford to spoil it in a trailer or poster. Or maybe he's the one character who simply couldn't be squeezed into the action. Either way, it's pretty clear we're not seeing Clint Barton until the movie actually arrives in theaters.
Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee serve as executive producers on Avengers: Infinity War, alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: Civil War) wrote the screenplay. Be sure to check out the brand new Infinity War team posters, courtesy of Marvel Studios, for yourself below.
