As of this writing, we are exactly two weeks away from Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters, and Marvel Studios is putting out new TV spots daily to ramp up excitement. In the latest spot, there’s a quick barrage of scenes that fly by, but when slowed down, one particular scene stands out from the rest. The scene in question features Iron Man and Star-Lord in what looks like a confrontation. We’ve seen Peter Quill disagree with one of Tony Stark’s plans of attack, but will the two really get into a physical altercation?
When looked at closely, the new scene from Infinity War looks like Iron Man is holding Star-Lord back from something. And by the look on Star-Lord’s face, it isn’t a pretty sight. While it could be that they are in a fight of sorts, it really doesn’t look that way. It seems highly probable that Star-Lord is witnessing something awful happen to someone that he cannot save at the hands of Thanos. This isn’t official, but you can look at the photo below to see what you think.
Another interesting shot from the latest Infinity War TV spot comes right from the start. The spot opens with a brand-new look at Thanos and his Black Order before he raises the Infinity Gauntlet up into the air in triumph. Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight, Corvus Glaive, and Black Dwarf are all standing together in a semi-circle around the Mad Titan, giving us our best look at the evil group that we’ve seen to date. Proxima Midnight and Ebony Maw have been featured in previous spots, but briefly.
The Black Order will assist Thanos in the recovery of the Infinity Stones and wiping out as many of the Avengers that they can in Infinity War. From the looks of things, Ebony Maw looks like a force to be reckoned with in the footage shown where he’s torturing Doctor Strange. Actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor plays the character, which the Russo Brothers have likened to Thanos’ “hype man.” The directors had this to say.
“This character Ebony Maw in particular is like Thanos’ herald. He’s a little bit of his hype man. And Thanos is sort of a culty character. Ebony Maw, the character who Tom plays, is the one that builds up the cult.”
Thanos and his Black Order are going to be the biggest challenge that the superheroes in Infinity War have ever faced, and the new still picture of Iron Man and Star-Lord may give a certain clue about just how bad things get in the highly anticipated movie. Even with the barrage of new Infinity War footage that Marvel Studios has released over the last few weeks, Marvel fans are still in the dark as to what will go down in the epic movie, which is obviously a good thing.
