“The entire time I knew him, he only had one goal – to wipe out half of the universe and if he gets all the infinity stones, he can do it with a snap of its fingers, Snapp”
According to the Infinity Gauntlet issue #1, Mistress of Death raised Thanos from the dead to wipe out half the population. Although in the movies there is no such reference, Gamora in the new trailer gives us the very basis of Thanos collecting the Infinity Stones.
The Snap reference is actually from the Gauntlet issue where Thanos actually did a snap and half of the universe goes missing. However, later on Nebula restores it by taking the Gauntlet from Thanos.
The Black order appeared first in the New Avengers when Thanos with Black order invaded earth in search of his Inhuman son – Thane. The creators of the movie have seemingly merged the two plots and we have Thanos collecting the stones in order to wipe out half of the universe. His motivation for doing so here in still unknown. Let us hope that the Mistress of Death will get her reference here.
“Half of humanity will still exist”
In the new trailer, we also see Ebony hushing Dr Stephen Strange while he messes with his mind. In the New Avengers issue, Ebony manipulated Doctor to find Thane but in the movie, there is no mention of Thane. As far as the eye of Agamotto a.k.a Time stone is concerned we see that in the trailer. Strange is still wearing it so it can be snatched physically but messing with the Sorcerer Supreme’s mind, well that’s a whole other thing. It might also so happen that Ebony tries to use Strange to find the Soul stone. In the Infinity Gauntlet issue, it was seen that Adam Warlock did have a connection with Dr Strange (when he was trapped inside the soul stone). So maybe, to get hold of Soul stone or Adam warlock (more or less the same thing), Ebony is seen to mess with Dr strange.
There is a strong possibility that Adam makes a cameo as without Adam, Infinity war doesn’t feel good. Also, I am eager to see the attack on Wakanda as Proxima and Black dwarf attack to get the Mind stone as we see Vision being transported to Wakanda. As in the comics, Shuri becomes the queen and wears some badass suit and has a faceoff with Proxima. Let us hope that it happens.
But I have some complains as to why Supergiant is missing from the Black order because with her missing, the entire plot of X-Men goes out. We see that Supergiant was sent as undercover to Jean Grey school of Mutants where she controls Bobby(Iceman) and creates havoc. So with her missing, it’s sure that X-Men are nowhere to be seen in this movie.
As to know who doesn’t make it out to the end of Infinity War, I’d put my money on Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. In the trailer, Tony was in a pretty bad shape with his armour broken and looking all helpless. On the other hand, Steve gets into an intense brawl with Thanos and as we see one of his shield goes missing (the new shield). In the comics, Thanos crushes Captain’s shield and kills him.
The trailer was exciting and I feel that we’ll get the Avengers: Infinity War we deserve!
