“Avengers: Infinity War” Trailer Smashes Viewing Records

If you watched the Avengers: Infinity War trailer multiple times to catch all the details — Cap’s beard! Wakanda! The Guardians of the Galaxy! — you weren’t alone: The first trailer for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster racked up more than 200 million views in 24 hours, setting a new record for the most trailer views in a single day.

After debuting Wednesday morning, the Infinity War trailer earned 230 million views in its first day, according to Marvel. Infinity War’s record viewership dethrones the previous champion, It, which earned 197 million views when the first trailer dropped earlier this year.

The trailer for the third Avengers film finds the tyrannical Thanos (Josh Brolin) making his way to Earth in search of the powerful Infinity Stones. The first footage follows some of Marvel’s mightiest heroes — including Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) — as they team up to take Thanos down.

Vanity Fair (2017) Photo Shoot

Admittedly, we weren’t holding our breathe when it leaked Vanity Fair was holding a secret photo shoot with several stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There were only rumours with nothing confirmed regarding Cobie’s participation in the upcoming, Avengers: Infinity War film. You can imagine our surprise — and delight — when Cobie was featured in the magazine photo shoot! Does this mean we finally have confirmation?

Vanity Fair — After a decade of unprecedented success, Marvel Studios is at a pivotal moment: the looming farewell to some of its founding superheroes, and the rise of a new generation. Kevin Feige, the creative force behind the $13 billion franchise and a slew of Marvel stars, discusses its precarious beginnings, stumbles, and ever-expanding empire.

Rumoured “Avengers: Infinity War” Main Cast

With Avengers: Infinity War set to go into production early in the New Year, a casting call has arrived online which claims to offer up details of the main cast for the Marvel superhero epic.

Now, it should be noted that this is not official from Marvel, and casting calls are often inaccurate; this could just be a case of the agency taking a guess based on who they expect to appear in the film – so any Spider-Man or Falcon fans out there, don’t start panicking just yet!

Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Josh Brolin as Thanos
Chris Pratt as Star-Lord
Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier
Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange
Brie Larson as Captain Marvel
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
Karen Gillan as Nebula
Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers
Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch
Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
Vin Diesel as Groot
Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
Benedict Wong as Wong
Dave Bautista as Drax
Paul Bettany as Vision
Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther
Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark

Adding further weight to this being speculation is the absence of Cobie Smulders, who has already revealed that she’ll be reprising the role of Maria Hill.

Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4th, 2018, and will be shot-back-to-back with the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which is slated to arrive on May 3rd, 2019. (Source)

“The Avengers: Infinity War” to Be One Film

Disney has confirmed that it will make only one Avengers: Infinity movie rather than the two it had announced previously.

Disney said on Friday that it still plans to release Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as planned on May 4, 2018. But what was slated to be the second part in that story, Avengers: Infinity War Part II, has now been renamed as an Untitled Avengers project while retaining the May 3, 2019 release date.

The two “Infinity War” movies were announced together in October, 2014, with both directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Two months ago, the Russo brothers told the Uproxx site that the third and fourth Avengers were being retitled in part to clarify that the films would be two separate films rather than one large film split in half.

Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner starred in both movies. Downey and Renner have been confirmed to appear in “Infinity Wars.” No word if Cobie will return as Maria Hill. (Source)

Robert Downey Jr. Returning For “The Avengers 2”

Marvel Studios officially announced today that Robert Downey Jr. is returning as Tony Stark/Iron Man in both The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3. However, the agreement was just a two-picture deal, which means that Iron Man 3 will likely be the last of his stand-alone movies.

The deal falls in line with a story from last month, that revealed the actor was in early talks to come back for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3, but had no interest in a potential Iron Man 4. Iron Man 3 was the last movie under Robert Downey Jr.’s Marvel deal. We also reported in April that the actor wants to “retire” as Tony Stark/Iron Man, but he didn’t say when that might happen.

Joss Whedon is writing the screenplay and directing The Avengers 2, which will include the cast from Marvel’s The Avengers, along with characters never before seen in Marvel movies, such as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Production is slated to begin in March 2014, so stay tuned for more updates from this Marvel Phase Two ensemble.

The Avengers 2 comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Mark Ruffalo. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

The Avengers 3 comes to theaters in 2019 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson. (Source)
