Avengers Infinity War has absolutely delighted fans worldwide while smashing the box office record in the opening weekend with a grossing of $640.5 million.
The movie has so far exceeded $808 million worldwide, which makes it the second highest-grossing movies of 2018 so far after Marvel’s Black Panther.
Avengers: Infinity War is the most intense and complex Marvel movie so far, delivering an exciting culmination of the MCU.
Based on Marvel Comic books, the superhero iconic hit has been in the making for 10 years.
In the movie we see an impressive list of major superheroes, something that is never attempted in Hollywood before, that team up in attempt to prevent Thanos from destroying half of the universe.
Teaming up to stop him are an impressive list of the big-screen Marvel heroes including Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and also Avengers Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Spider Man (Tom Holland), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).
The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy need to stop Thanos from collecting powerful cosmic gems: the Infinity Stones.
Marvel Studios has already confirmed that the second part of the Infinity War is on its way, making it the first Avengers movie that will follow a second part while the previous movies have been standalone storylines allowing the audiences to watch them on their own.
The next Avengers (Avengers 4) is expected to be released next year on May 3, 2019.
And no, Captain Marvel is not the next Avengers: Infinity War. It’s rather a film in its own and will be released next year on March 6, 2019.
Coming back to the storyline, the battle which leads to shocking consequences, takes place on several planets as Thanos and his accomplices stop at nothing to find the stones.
While evil Thanos wants death and destruction, his motives might not be as cliché as we’re used to. He doesn’t want universal domination. He wants to destroy half of the population because he believes that the Universe suffers from overpopulation and lack of resources, which makes the narrative more complex.
As Thanos manages to acquire the Power Stone and keeps seeking the other five, the location of the sixth, which will bring Thanos the power he wants, will also lead him to not so pleasant crossroad with his stepdaughter Gamora.
You might already know this but Avengers: Infinity War is dark, daring, a bit bizarre; many of your favorite superheroes will die and will definitely leave you stunned by the ending of part one.
Trying to make sense of the movie in a review and describing 2 hours and 30 minutes is a difficult task which would require addressing all the characters, their motivations, subplots and culmination parts.
What we can say for sure is that, alike fans worldwide, we can’t wait to see what will happen next year.
