The single most highly anticipated trailer of the year finally debuted this week after months of leaving fans in the dark. The Avengers: Infinity War trailer is here! The trailer certainly lived up to the hype, selling a movie that features the various heroes from across the MCU banding together to face a terrible foe. Thanos! Thor with the Guardians! Wakanda ready for battle! A fully bearded Captain America! It was all a feast for the eyes, but now the cooling excitement in our brains just makes for some burning questions about Marvel's humongous blockbuster.
While the first video of Avengers: Infinity War was a strong tease of what's to come, it wouldn't be a very good trailer if it didn't leave us wanting to know more. We're left with an idea of what certain characters are doing and with whom, but there's plenty left that goes unanswered. That will likely stay the same until May 2018, so we'll just have to obsess over this trailer in the meantime (or until the next one). Thanos' plans are wrapped in mystery, and these are 6 of the biggest questions we have about Avengers: Infinity War.
Is Tony Stark Wearing An Arc Reactor?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) started it all in the first Iron Man, and he will play a huge part in the events of Avengers: Infinity War. In the trailer, Tony teams up with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Wong (Benedict Wong), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to fight something in New York City before coming face-to-face with the purple man himself: Thanos (Josh Brolin). While in his civilian clothing, what looks like a glowing metal object can be seen poking out of Tony's jacket. It certainly looks like an arc reactor, the power source of the Iron Man armor that used to be directly attached to his chest. Tony removed the reactor at the end of Iron Man 3 and has been operating his suits without it just fine. So, did he reattach it? If so, then why? For health reasons?
What Is This Mysterious Planet?
The opening shot of the trailer is an unnamed orange planet. This planet looks to be the setting of a major confrontation between Team Iron Man and Thanos (Josh Brolin). The Mad Titan smacks the crap out on Iron Man and Spider-Man in the orange wasteland, and Tony Stark looks absolutely shaken in what looks like the same setting. It's possible that this planet is actually Earth in the aftermath of a Thanos-attack, or it could be an entirely new planet we've never seen. I'm inclined to think that latter, so why are they there? And how did they get there? Thanos has the Space Stone at this point, so it's possible that he teleported everyone there from Earth. As to the why of it all, the planet happens to be a similar shade to the last remaining Infinity Stone: the Soul Stone. Could this planet be home to the final Stone?
