Spider-Man’s Spidey sense makes an appearance in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and we’re pumped
If you were missing Peter Parker’s Spidey sense in Spider-Man: Homecoming, never fear — the webslinger’s beloved precognitive ability will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got a first look at it in action during the trailer for Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster, which debuted at the D23 Expo on Saturday.
The majority of the cast — including Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland — assembled (ha ha) to give fans a sneak peek at the trailer, which combines pretty much all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest heroes into a superhero melee that practically explodes off the screen.
In the footage, we see Peter riding on a bus and looking up at the sky when all of the hairs on his arm stand up on end — signalling the arrival of the MCU’s biggest big bad, Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Peter also gets a chance to debut the shiny new Spider-Man duds that Tony Stark presented him with at the end of Homecoming, and the red, blue and black ensemble looks super slick against the backdrop of explosions and mayhem seen in the trailer.
Spidey’s not the only hero who gets a new look in the film — the footage showed a grizzled-looking Captain America (Chris Evans) sporting a thick beard and a sleek, dark iteration of his costume.
Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) has also traded her signature red hair for a new blonde bob — maybe the Avengers are only allowed one redhead at a time and Scarlet Witch called dibs?
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige revealed that yesterday the film wrapped the halfway mark in its shooting schedule, calling is “by far the biggest production in the history of Marvel Studios.”
In addition to Holland and Brolin, fellow cast members Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Karen Gilllan (Nebula), Dave Bautista (Drax), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) were on hand for the presentation.
Avengers: Infinity War will debut in theaters on May 4, 2018.
