Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest movie of 2018. Fans have been anticipating what has been referred to as “the most ambitious crossover event in history” for years, waiting to see their favorite heroes interact with each other on screen. Now, finally, it’s here.
Infinity War, released April 27, tells the story of our heroes trying to prevent Thanos from finding the Infinity Stones and completing his gauntlet. If Thanos succeeds in this, with the six stones, he’ll be able to “put the universe in balance” with just the snap of his fingers. The Avengers, along with many new and old heroes, have to fight with everything they’ve got to try and defeat Thanos. Sacrifices will be made, lessons will be learned, and power will be tested.
The film has an all-star cast with Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Paul Bettany as Vision, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Peter Dinklage as Eitri, Benedict Wong as Wong, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Winston Duke as M’Baku, and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
Along with Infinity War being Marvel Studios’ biggest release, the film has already been breaking major box office records in the first couple of days in theaters. Infinity War recently passed the $1B mark in the global box office.
