‘Avengers: Infinity War’ trailer unites Marvel’s greatest heroes and most familiar plot elements

Avengers: Infinity War is the ultimate superhero ensemble film of superhero ensemble films, and as you’ll see in this first trailer, Marvel has spared no expense in bringing together all the biggest and most iconic superhero ensemble plot elements in one place. The casual destruction of a major metropolis; a monologist baddie with a special, glowy weapon; an invading army of generic, ill-defined aliens; a conveniently desolate expanse to square off in; vaguely powerful cubes; and, yeah, a bunch superheroes—this time including the full Avengers lineup, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Spider-Man, and assumedly Ant-Man, even if this preview is notably lacking in dramatic shots of Rudd.

The culmination of a decade of enjoyably boilerplate storytelling hits theaters May 4.
