Spider-Man Takes A Field Trip
Spider-Man (Tom Holland) ditches one field trip to head off an intergalactic adventure with his surrogate father figure, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who isn't particularly enthused with letting the youngster tag along. However, Parker's super-strength and fondness for really old sci-fi movies does come in handy when the duo partner up to rescue Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) from Ebony Maw's (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) clutches.
Meet Ebony Maw
Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), easily the most dangerous member of Thanos' (Josh Brolin) Black Order. He's among the first to make contact with the Avengers and finally meets his intellectual match when he comes face-to-face with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), although he does manage to gain the upper hand on the Sorcerer Supreme after some well-timed trickery.
Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian
Cull Obsidian (Terry Notary) was billed as the strongest of the Black Order and considering that he manages to go toe-to-toe with the Hulkbuster (Mark Ruffalo) for a while, that's probably true, but then again, that's really he does. His introduction scene quickly wraps up with him getting transported to Antarctica while his fight with Banner in Wakanda ends in his brutal demise.
We're All Going To Die!
In a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance, Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) showed up to deliver one of the film's funniest lines as he immediately began to panic upon seeing the arrival of Ebony Maw's (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) ship. However, while unintentional, his distraction did allow his best pal Peter Parker (Tom Holland) to slip away - in broad daylight - to arrive in the nick of time to help out both Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo).
Iron Man and Doctor Strange Defend Earth
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) team-up to take down both Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) and Cull Obsidian (Terry Notary). Even by film's end, the odd couple doesn't exactly depart as friends, but it does appear as though they may have at least a mutual respect for one another, especially considering that Strange may have very deliberately left the fate of the universe in Tony's hands.
Also, there's a Sherlock Holmes joke to be made here somewhere... but I can't quite place my finger on it just yet.
The Armored Avenger
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) aboard Ebony Maw's (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) ship where he's launching an attack against either Maw or the gate-crashing Guardians. Unlike the other founding Avengers, who were reunited in Wakanda by the time the credits rolled, Tony was on his own adventure in outer space and is now currently stranded on Titan with broken armor and a mourning Nebula (Karen Gillan).
The Iron Spider Stretches His Legs
If at first you don't succeed... try, try, try again. After failing to get Peter (Tom Holland) in the Iron Spider suit at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tony saved his young protégé with the same suit as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler was spiraling back down to Earth and as an added surprise, we got to see the Iron Spider legs in action, which were extremely useful when Spidey almost fell out into outer space right behind Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor).
The Avengers Meet The Guardians of the Galaxy
In a scene that essentially pays homage to the first meeting between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in The Avengers, this scene sees Iron Man, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) meet Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), and Mantis (Pom Klementieff), which ends in a standoff, broken up by a hilarious exchange between Quill, Tony, and Drax. "Where is Gamora? Who is Gamora? Why is Gamora?"
Ebony Maw Tortures Doctor Strange
In a scene more or less ripped directly from the comics, we see Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) inflict all sorts of unimaginable pain onto the Sorcerer Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch) in order to obtain the Time Stone for Thanos (Josh Brolin). Unlike the comics, however, we didn't really get any sort of inkling that he would be willing to betray his adoptive father.
Ebony Maw Heads Back To Titan
Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) takes Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to Titan, but unbeknownst to him, his ship has two hyper-intelligent stowaways that will prove to be problematic for even the most dangerous member of Thanos' Black Order. We also get a sense of Maw's size here as he's able to pilot the ship alone while it required both Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) to pilot the ship after the villain was launched into cold depths of space.
It should also be noted that outside of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Maw was the only one of his children that Thanos seemed remotely upset about losing as he later asks Doctor Strange of Maw's fate upon arriving on Titan.
Approximately four years have passed since the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and it seems like Rocket (Bradley Cooper) has matured quite a bit since his days of stealing Anulax Batteries for fun, although his penchant for body parts has remained as strong as ever since we do see him later inquire about the Winter Soldier's (Sebastian Stan) arm.
Ain't No Thing Like Me, Except Me!
Rocket (Bradley Cooper) proved himself to be absolutely vital in Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) journey to Nidavellir and later helps the mighty God of Thunder restart the dying star. Rocket also showed a great deal of compassion and respect toward his new friend Thor (definitely more than he's shown Quill) and even gave him a new eye after hearing his tragic story.
Groot Witnesses Thor's Sacrifice
Groot's (Vin Diesel) really just around four human years old when Infinity War picks up, but since Flora colossus ages at a different speed than homo sapiens, he's depicted as a teenager here, which gives us a few laughs as the Guardians do their best to parent him early on. We also learn that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) can understand him, which made for a very fun reveal.
Groot joins both Thor and his father figure Rocket (Bradley Cooper) on their important mission to Nidavellir, but doesn't really partake in the action until he sees exactly how far the God of Thunder was willing to go to stop Thanos. Groot's reaction to Thor's sacrifice is pictured above.
The Benatar Answers A Distress Call
Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I believe this shot is from the Guardians' introduction scene where they answer a distress call and discover the wreckage of an Asgardian ship. Upon further examination, they run straight into Thor (Chris Hemsworth) himself and bring him aboard, questioning how exactly he's managed to survive in deep space. After Drax (Dave Bautista) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) both take a liking to the God of Thunder and his god-like physique, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) promptly asks Mantis (Pom Klementieff) to wake him up, which kickstarts the beginning of the end for the Guardians as they find themselves on a collision course with Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Thor Risks Everything
Having lost his parents (Anthony Hopkins & Rene Russo), his brother (Tom Hiddleston), his sister (Cate Blanchett), his best friend (Idris Elba), his home, and more, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) had almost nothing left to lose in Infinity War and knew that without a new weapon, stopping Thanos (Josh Brolin) and the combined might of the Infinity Stones would be near-impossible.
This was one of the most critical and emotional scenes in the movie as we saw the God of Thunder take the full force of the star in order to help Eitri (Peter Dinklage) forge Stormbreaker.
Groot Completes Stormbreaker
With Thor (Chris Hemsworth) near-death and Eitri (Peter Dinklage) off looking for a handle, Groot (Vin Diesel) stepped up big time and used his own arm to join both sides of Stormbreaker before the God of Thunder took over, managing to summon the weapon and bring the two-favorite Guardians along with him to Earth.
Point Break, Rabbit, and Tree Walk Into A Bar
Out of all the various pairings in Infinity War, the quick team-up between Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) proved to be among the best as we were treated to arguably Hemsworth's best Marvel performance yet. Here's to hoping he survives the events of next year's Avengers 4, so we can get plenty more adventures with a character that suddenly feels rejuvenated after his makeover from the mastermind that is Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Cavalry Has Arrived
While the battle with the Black Order and the Outriders was far from over, it did seem as though the tides were turning in their favor as it was becoming increasingly difficult for Captain America (Chris Evans) and company to hold their ground. Luckily, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Stormbreaker arrived just on time with arguably the most badass entry in the entire film (although Cap's entry is a personal favorite), bringing some major reinforcements with both Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) by his side and ready to kick names and take ass.
The Hulk and the Hulkbuster
After having seen Avengers: Infinity War, it does make a lot of sense why the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) wasn't featured as prominently on the film's posters, especially since he only appears in the opening sequence where he gets his ass kicked by Thanos (Josh Brolin) before being shipped off to Earth by a dying Heimdall (Idris Elba).
He refuses to reemerge for the rest of the film, which was a little frustrating for Bruce Banner, but as it turns out, Banner didn't exactly need the Hulk to be an Avenger and he still managed to prove himself on the battlefield by taking down Cull Obsidian (Terry Notary). He was also among the first to charge Thanos when he arrived on Earth, showing off his bravery, but was quickly dispatched as the Mad Titan could not be bothered on his way to rip the Mind Stone from Vision (Paul Bettany).
Here it is, the official title card for Avengers: Infinity War, which falls very much in line with the title cards used for the theatrical releases of both The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. This title card was completed by the good people at Perception.
