Marvel has released a new TV spot for Infinity War that teases the end. While there's no new footage shown off, the mythical second trailer may finally be released this week, since a new report suggests that the pre-sale tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 16th. The first trailer was released late last year, and fans have been asking for more footage nearly every day since then. It was announced last week that Infinity War was bumped up to April 27th, which has just led to more thirst for the second trailer.
The new 30-second TV spot starts off in the exact same way as the original Infinity War teaser trailer. However, the sneak peek features a new piece of dialogue that states, "The end is near." It's not clear just who exactly is saying the cryptic message, but it could be one of Thanos' Black Order. The new TV spot comes up right before we're expected to get a behind-the-scenes look at the next Marvel Cinematic Universe project on Entertainment Tonight this evening.
Even more exciting, it's been reported that the pre-sale tickets for Infinity War will go on sale this Friday. An anonymous source reports that his place of employment, possibly AMC theaters, received information about the pre-sale starting this week and produced a screenshot. Additionally, it looks like there will be special 3D screenings on April 26th for hardcore fans. The Reddit user had this to say.
"Word has just been put out by bookings that we will need show times prepared and ready by tomorrow, and they will be shown online to the public by this Friday. First show times start at 7pm on the 26th. There will be a 3D fan event with collectibles reserved for fan event ticketholders at 6pm on the 26th. (they are nothing special, trust me, but a good opportunity to see the movie one hour early if you get tickets early enough)."
Though nothing has been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, putting the pre-sale tickets on sale 6 weeks beforehand is the same marketing strategy that they used for Black Panther. If the pre-sale tickets end up going on sale this Friday, that means that the second trailer will more than likely be released this week as well. The last trailer premiered on Good Morning America, so Marvel may end up going a different route this time around.
With a behind-the-scenes featurette showing up on Entertainment Tonight, the new 30-second TV spot, and the heavy rumors of the pre-sale tickets going on sale this week, it's proving to be quite the exciting week for Marvel fans. However, the reports of the new trailer and pre-sale tickets have not been confirmed officially at this time, so take this report with a grain of salt.
