Things We Didn’t See Today: The Apparently Amazing Avengers: Infinity War Footage
At the D23 Expo, Disney’s massive biannual meeting of the Official Disney Fan Club, Marvel Studios shared some footage of Thanos battling the Avengers from Avengers: Infinity War. Unlike many other D23 reveals, it wasn’t simultaneously broadcast online – but it was apparently awesome. io9 said it “blows away even your wildest expectations“. MTV.com called it “spectacular,” and Polgyon wrote that “the Marvel we’ve dreamt of for a decade is real.” So…I guess this is a good sign?
Disney went all-out today for the D23 Expo, so I apologize that the rest of these bullets are also mostly about Disney properties.
