Things We Saw Today: This Avengers: Infinity War Gag Reel Tease Is Delightful
It’s almost time to watch Thanos kill everyone you love in the comfort of your own home! Let’s celebrate with some laughs.
People Magazine got an exclusive near-minute of gags from the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War blooper reel, which will drop along with the movie’s digital (July 31st) and Blu-Ray release (August 14th). Per People, the full version of the blooper reel should run to about two minutes long.
Blooper reels are funny, sure, but for me the pure joy of watching them stems from seeing the actors in full costume, skirting the line between being in character and breaking from it. Observe as Vision says, “Fuck you, Ruffalo,” Tony Stark, Stephen Strange, and Bruce Banner dance and sing a song from Mary Poppins amidst the ruins of a New York street, and absolutely everyone seems to be grooving. It’s nice to see some light-hearted content emerge from the grim Infinity War; it looks like the actors were having fun on set.
Hoofs down, the goats in Wakanda steal this whole damn reel.
There are some more bloopers contained herein (via Movieweb):

- CASTLEVANIA SEASON 2 TRAILER. Netflix is bringing back the animated show for grown-ups, inspired by the classic video game, on October 28th. Written by my perennial fave, comics legend Warren Ellis, the first season of Castlevania was only four episodes so you have no excuse not to catch up by the time season 2 rips our heart out and chops off our head for good measure.
- Trump’s personal lawyer, ex-New York City mayor Rudy “Broken Windows Policing” Giuliani, now says that he’s “not sure that collusion” with Russia would be considered a crime. In other news, war is peace, slavery is freedom, and ignorance is strength. (via CNN)
- I need this for, uh, serious reasons?
