In addition, Chadwick Boseman debuted the brand new “Black Panther” poster. See the poster along with stills from the trailer below.

“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Okoye, leader of the Dora Milaje, isn't ready to assemble.

The Black Panther may reign over Wakanda, but the Dora Milaje are the true protectors of the resplendent nation. As the general of the royal armed forces, actress Danai Gurira plays the role of Okoye, the Dora Milaje’s fierce and cautious leader. Speaking from the set of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War,” Gurira talked about Okoye’s loyalty and the roles of strong women in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As seen in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” Wakanda was isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years. Just as they opened their doors, “Infinity War” brings the Avengers all together onto Black Panther’s playing field. To have the warriors meet the super heroes was exciting for Gurira, but brought up different feelings for her character, “I’m excited for all the connections she can and might make—through what she’s about to go through with these warriors and these Avengers, these super heroes. [Okoye’s] more cautious about that.”

Gurira continued, “She’s hasn’t been excited about outsiders. You’ll see that in a very clear way in the movie.”

As a deep traditionalist with the weight of protecting Wakanda and its King, leading the Dora Milaje, and adhering to Wakanda’s traditions and structures, all responsibility lies solely on Okoye’s shoulders. “The vocation of being a Dora is you’re learning how to be one from quite a young age,” revealed Gurira. “Her entire vocation has been to maintain this nation.”

These responsibilities and traditional values are what drives her apprehension of the Avengers. “[Okoye’s] always thinking about how many things can go wrong and how much she can control what could go wrong before it goes wrong,” explained Gurira. “There’s not a lot of control that she can have over something that’s coming that’s this massive. But that’s where her caution is. That’s where her concerns lie. It’s, of course, in her gut.”

The changes Wakanda faces such as the opening of the borders and revealing themselves to the world is what Gurira’s character must grapple with as we enter “Infinity War.” Gurira acknowledged the Dora will be tested more than ever before, “This is one of the biggest threats they’ve dealt with.” At the end of the day, she’s led by her King and goes by his decision.

Gurira was acquainted with her co-stars before the filming of “Black Panther,” which lead to a comfortability on set. The sisterhood continued on the set of “Avengers: Infinity War.” On her relationship with Angela Bassett, “I’ve always really adored Ms. Bassett and she’s always been so kind and gracious to me every time I’ve been around her. It was really beautiful, actually.” As for Gurira’s sisterly relationship with Lupita Nyong’o, “Lupita and I go way back, and we just worked together on my play, ‘Eclipsed.’ We are very much [like] close sisters — it was very much balancing off each other and supporting each other, and our thoughts and collaborations and how we were figuring out the language and everything. We were making sure we had fun because I’m the person that needs to be encourage-minded to have fun, and she made sure I did that.”

As for the King’s sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, Gurira was familiar with her from her London play as well, “I loved her from the second I saw her…saying, ‘This girl’s got fire.’ I loved her since then, so getting to be in this movie with her, it was amazing.”

The familial feeling continued off-camera with the cast spending time together solidifying their successful on-screen chemistry. “We had a good time together,” said Gurira. “Supportive, fun, lots of going out on the weekend, lots of bowling, going to [get] Nigerian food, partying. Mr. Addison [Henderson] and Chadwick made sure people always had a good time. It was actually a really awesome family of women and men. It was a great sisterhood. We took a lot of care of each other.”

To be a part of a massive Marvel film with so many female characters is something that spoke to Gurira, “It’s really thrilling. I’m insanely thankful to be alive at the moment I am alive, and I don’t take it for granted that so many women before me have had to navigate and push for more representation, and I get to benefit from the fruits of their labor. I’ve seen that evolution before I started acting to now. You can feel that, the shift, and it is a really exciting thing when you see there is a lot of attention paid to the position and the contribution to the female characters.”

See Black Widow and Captain America gather the team against Thanos on April 27!

Avengers Assemble! After a Civil War, a Ragnarok, and the fight for Wakanda—Marvel’s mightiest heroes are coming back together for a fight of galactic proportions. Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings together the original team and more to unite and battle against the Mad Titan himself, Thanos.

Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Chris Evans (Captain America) talked with us during a set visit last summer about what it was like to rejoin the fragmented squad and how their characters are moving forward as a team despite their differences.

When we last saw Steve Rogers, he was at odds with Tony Stark, but Evans feels like both characters are ready to move on and get the job done, “I don’t think either one of us are ones to hold grudges. We operate very binary, utilitarian approach to most things we do, and I don’t think we let emotion dictate our reality. It’s been a couple years so I think we both—to some degree, not moved on—but maybe buried some things.”

Director Joe Russo, Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Director Anthony Russo

As “Infinity War” begins—dare we say it—is Cap broken at this point? “I kind of went rogue a little bit. But again, it’s in his nature to be of service, and to some degree, in order to maintain sanity, he had to function within a system. That’s how his brain works; there has to be some kind of functioning factory that he can operate within.” Having lost his shield, even Cap’s suit is showing signs of exhaustion. Alone and without protection, Evans knows Cap leaned on Widow, “He’s been running these missions, answering to nobody, really. It really is the sign of a broken person. But yeah, that’s the wear and tear.”

The breaking point during the end of “Captain America: Civil War” was a hard one to bear but Cap had an ally in Widow, and Johansson explained their mutual desire for duty, “Between the events of ‘Civil War’ and now, Steve and Natasha have been together, that’s how we imagined it. They’ve kind of been sort of flying under the radar but still taking care of business in the way that they know how to do. They sort of have a seamless communication between them.”

Having been fighting away from the main group, Johnasson explained how Cap and Widow are more hardened, “When you are working underground for such a long time and you don’t have—not that they need to have any sort of back-patting or recognition exactly—but when you’re sort of fighting for something that you know is important but is not being really recognized or supported by a larger organization or even society as a whole, it takes a certain toll, and you can get feelings about it in a way. That’s kind of where we find them.”

Director Joe Russo, Director Anthony Russo and Scarlet Johansson (Black Widow) on set

A disillusioned Cap is something Black Widow can relate to. Evans sees that Natasha has already walked a similar line, “Every single movie, he learns a little bit more that the world isn’t the way he kind of wants it to be, and that’s why there’s a connection between him and Black Widow. Black Widow has seen a lot more than he is, and is kind of a little more calloused, and in a lot of ways, he looks up to that and learns from that.”

“First it was kind of the hierarchy of a kind of government structure that fell apart, and then there was a friendship that kind of betrayed him, or abandoned him, I should say, said Evans. Still, he believes  Cap knows there’s a bigger picture, “When those things happen, it’s like a destruction of a belief system to some degree, and you kind of can be a little cold as a result. And you lean on people that have walked familiar paths and there’s no denying that Black Widow has certainly faced a lot of those challenges. He’s compartmentalized it enough to put it as a lower priority than what’s at hand, which is obviously Thanos.”

As the team finally reassembles, emotions will run high. Johansson explains the enormity of the job at hand, “There’s just a lot of people coming together, a lot of universes coming together. In some ways, there’s not a lot of time to have feelings about what’s going on, because we’re facing the greatest threat we ever have, and I mean that in itself is so much.”

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the culmination of the MCU. Evans knows fans won’t be disappointed, and can’t wait for them to see it come together, “It was fun with ‘Avengers,’ bringing all these characters to life, but they weren’t all separate threads of characters that’ve had their own separate adventures. This has ever been done before, where you have so many different franchises coming together to kind of really try to make one stew. Like I said, ‘Avengers’ was pretty ambitious, but this really blows that one out of the water.”

Get a glimpse on the storytelling elements from balancing tones to collaborations and more.

How do you approach the behemoth that is Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” — a film with ten years of baggage with different storylines, different visions, different tones, to honor? How does a storyteller divide screen time among  40+ major players who are at different stages of their journeys and continue to engage and surprise viewers? The challenge and weight of what this film means to many is not lost on “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.

As we continue unveiling everything we learned during last summer’s set visit, we couldn’t think of two better people to get a look at the magnitude of the biggest cinematic production ever assembled than those who are helming the film — the Russo Brothers. Not only were the Russos tackling “Avengers: Infinity War” and the untitled fourth “Avengers” film simultaneously, they had to contend with the finishing of James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and Taika Watiti’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” with the concurrent production of Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther,” start of Peyton Reed’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” and planning for “Captain Marvel.”

The Russos entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as storytellers with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” joined by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The team went on to tackle higher stakes with “Captain America: Civil War.” Not to be outdone, they’re now tackling 20-some heroes, multiple locations, six Infinity Stones, and the baddest/most powerful villain our heroes have ever encountered—Thanos, with the next “Avengers” installment. The Brothers shared insight on their approach to the characters, the complications of putting together a project of this scale, and dropped some insights during our intimate set visit.

[Note: This interview has been edited for clarity.]

How “Avengers: Infinity War” Kicks Off

“Avengers: Infinity War” is two years following “Captain America: Civil War.” According to Anthony, “Infinity War” is a “direct corollary to the end of ‘Civil War,’ and our heroes will be heading into this film “with the ramifications of that film at the forefront of this film.”

Continuing, “[‘Infinity War’] is very much about how we move forward from ‘Civil War’ in a big way, and what happens to that division between the Avengers and how does that affect them. What does that mean when the greatest threat they’ll ever face comes to them.”

Despite the two years following “Civil War,” the Russo Brothers have a storytelling philosophy where make sure to “keep any big moments of the characters’ lives on camera.”

We know Cap’s team of Avengers find their way to Wakanda seeking aid from King T’Challa. Joe explained the fortified country is the most “logical place for anyone seeking refuge.”

Meanwhile, Tony Stark has to deal with the consequences of his choice to side with the Sokovia Accords. Our directors haven’t forgotten young Peter Parker. “They basically have a unique mentor/mentee relationship that continues to evolve as they move into this film,” shared Anthony.

With the Guardians, the directors acknowledged the film picks up 5-6 years following “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” The Guardians have had a chance to deepen their relationships with each other where the Avengers haven’t had that chance.

“They’re closer, and they’re tighter, and they’ve been doing it for a while,” said Anthony. “They’ve cemented their chemistry as a team. And they would stand in contrast with the other teams. Potentially.”

They’re thrilled at the chance to take on Thor and lean into his profound experience during “Thor: Ragnarok.” As for Hawkeye, the Russos confirmed he’s on his own journey in this film.

The Directors’ Approach to the Tone and Characters, and their Collaboration with Past Filmmakers

“It’s been a personal journey for us as filmmakers from ‘Winter Soldier,’ of a theme set in that movie that we then tried to expand upon in ‘Civil War,’ that then led to Infinity War,” shared Joe Russo. “It’s how we feel about the characters, as comic book fans, the story that we want to see.”

“It’s not only a culmination of the last ten years of Marvel storytelling, but for us, it’s a culmination of our journey as directors to the Marvel Universe,” added Joe. “Having at our disposal all of those characters and allowing ourselves to re-filter them through the way that we see the universe, the way that we feel about the characters, the themes that we really want to bring to the forefront, that’s what these two movies are for us.”

“Everything’s always got to be character based,” proclaimed Anthony. “If we’re sitting in the editing room, watch the sequences for more than 20 seconds without a character having a point of view or moving the action forward, my brain just shuts down. The action for us, it’s always character based.”

In addition to screenwriters Markus and McFeely, the Russos credited the team there were able to work with the past films, including effects supervisor Dan Deleeuw, editor Jeff Ford, DP Trent Opaloch, and stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave, to achieving the complex and ambitious nature of “Infinity War.”

It was important for the Russos to honor the journeys and approach the other MCU filmmakers took their characters on, but also make it work with the film they were creating. As Joe explained, the “Russo Brothers-execution” was filtering what others have done “through our very personal expression of them as characters.” Anthony acknowledged, “Everyone is interwoven in this plot in a way where they have an emotional connection to the story…. You can’t tell a movie with this many characters and not have each of those characters show up and honor them from the different franchises if they are not motivated to be there. If there are not in life or death circumstances. If they are not fighting to save their belief system or way of life.”

The Russos equated the MCU process as similar to how comic book stories evolve and involve several comic creators. “[We] found repeatedly that the best and only way for us to move forward is to receive that information, and keep what we like, and explore what we like, and exploit what we like, and tell the story that we want to tell. The same way you do in a comic run when you’re reading it, you go, ‘I want to see someone else’s point-of-view on that.’ That’s what Marvel’s done really well, bringing in a lot of different voices to execute the films.”

It’s safe to say everyone in the Marvel Universe had been involved. During the preparation and production of the third and fourth “Avengers” films, the Russos had the opportunity to collaborate closely with James Gunn, Taika Waititi, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed, Ryan Coogler, and producer Nate Moore. With the Marvel Universe progressing in different courses simultaneously and at the time, not yet completed, the Russos adopted a “real collaborative united artists approach” to ensure they were sensitive to the other stories and sharing those elements.

The Sources and Influences

Mark Ruffalo previously alluded to how THE INFINITY GAUNTLET informed the film, but there are clear deviations. Joe further elaborated on the comics source: “Certainly the Starlin book was our jumping off point. It’s a brilliant comic, and the ideas behind it are so large, it’s what pushed us to go for the scale that we’re going for on these movies.”

Joe continuing, “Anth and I love the post-modern comics. We’re also drawing from newer INFINITY stuff, and we’re kind of combining it all into…how do we see elements from each helping the story that we want to tell.”

In addition, the Russos were inspired by ensemble 90s crime films, and the two films that they look to for inspiration in relation to narrative imagery were “Two Days in the Valley” and “Out of Sight.”

“These movies are so complex you need a unifying peace, or a sense of cohesion, and that cohesion can come from a narrative construct that you can apply all the characters to,” explained Joe Russo.

Thanos (Josh Brolin)


True Believers, you’ve never seen a more formidable antagonist in the MCU like the Mad Titan, and he’s on a destructive mission to collect all the Infinity Stones no matter the stakes.

“This movie is catalyzed by Thanos’ decision and an opportunity for him to make a very aggressive move for the stones, a more effective move for the stones than he has ever in the past,” revealed Anthony. “When Thanos decides to do it, he really goes for it. He’s one step ahead of our heroes through the movie and he puts them through a lot of pain in the process.”

“Our job with Thanos is to make him the preeminent villain in the Marvel Universe,” added Joe. “In order to be a preeminent villain, you have to do some pretty bad things.”

The Russos stressed that the Infinity Stones are the “bedrock of the film” — “the key driver.”

Prepare Your Hearts

On the subject of Thanos, several of our heroes wield/guard the Infinity Stones putting them in directly in the path of Thanos, elevating the emotional weight. When asked about the invincibility of our heroes, Joe quickly teased, “I’m sorry.”

Acknowledging that every character is someone’s favorite character, Anthony explained, “We like mature storytelling. We like dramatic storytelling. We like intense storytelling. We appreciate conflict, and we appreciate stakes. And without stakes, there really isn’t a lot of value to the story. If you look at the Marvel Universe as a whole, as a story that’s been told for 10 years, you can look at [‘Infinity War’] as the climax. The stakes will be higher in this movie than they’ve ever been, times ten.”

Once the dust settles, we can expect the Avengers to see major casualties as they protect the universe and all of existence from Thanos.

Topping the “Civil War” Airport Fight Scene

“We have an equivalent that’s like if you had a comic book, and you open it up to your double panel, and then you fold it out. And then you fold it out again and again,” said Joe Russo.

Anthony Russo adding, “And you have another comic book laid out next to it.” “So we have the equivalent of that in this movie,” continued Joe Russo.

Hinting at the Untitled Fourth “Avengers” Film

The Brothers on the new challenge of shooting two MCU films at the same time: “Our approach has always been how we look at the project. It’s simply the same thing in the way that the ‘Winter Soldier’ related to ‘Civil War,’ and the way that ‘Civil War’ relates to ‘Infinity War.’ These two movies will also relate…but at the same time, there’s an independence in terms of what the experience is or where the story goes. It isn’t a true two-parter…. It ended up being more of two singular expressions.”

“We always try to make each film different so they don’t get repetitive,” said Joe. “This kind of serialized storytelling…. You have to keep evolving who’s at the forefront, how you’re laying the story out because rigor mortis will set in very quickly. Each character…can shape and color and re-tone an entire film depending on who you’re following. We find them as exciting as complex and inspiring and heartbreaking, and we believe that there are real emotional stakes. This is exactly the kind of movies we aspire to and exactly the kind of movies we look for as film goers in a theater.”

It’s safe to say that we’ve never seen anything like “Avengers: Infinity War.” Closing out the visit, Joe remarked, “If you were to think of the Marvel Universe over the last ten years of the book, this is the ending of the book. There may be new books written, but this is certainly the ending of this book.”

Mark Ruffalo talks Hulk's place on the team and the evolution of speaking in full sentences!

After Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Hulk has seen it all and done it all. He can even control his anger…somewhat. The Big Guy has grown and evolved, and now he’s ready to take his place on the team and fight the biggest threat in the universe, Thanos, in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Having been mysteriously missing from “Captain America: Civil War,” we now know that Hulk had other important business to attend to, and he may be the only hero to have firsthand knowledge of the extent of Thanos’ power.

From the set of “Avengers: Infinity War,” Mark Ruffalo explained that the big green guy was just plain busy. “He went to another dimension for a little while and met up with his pal—good pal— Thor, and they went on an intergalactic buddy trip, and then he came back,” said Ruffalo. Now Hulk’s back and ready for action, “We were introduced to Thanos after doing a lot of fighting, and now he’s been brought back together with the Avengers.”

The outsider of the team, Ruffalo revealed his character’s return to the Avengers with a new sense of purpose. “Banner knows probably more about Thanos than probably anybody. He’s really trying to impress on everybody how dangerous he is. It’s a little bit of a Chicken Little (scenario). He comes in screaming bloody murder.”

“He’s seen what damage he can cause and how powerful he is,” added Ruffalo. “The entire group is in disarray so he’s also getting caught up on what’s happened here and is trying to get them to transcend their differences and impress upon them how much danger they’re actually facing.”

Banner faced a life changing experience in “Thor: Ragnarok,” which pushed Hulk’s ability to be expressive and not internalized. Those events gives him perspective on the fallout of “Captain America: Civil War.” “It’s not combative but they’re not so in sync as they were,” shared Ruffalo. “Banner doesn’t understand ‘Civil War.’ He just doesn’t get it.”

After being away on a cosmic journey for three years, Ruffalo said Hulk needs to get back into the game. “Once again, I think he’s trying to find his place in the line-up. He’s having some difficulties integrating with the rest of the group, but he’s also privy to some information that is essential for their survival.”

Hulk has been exposed to more things in the universe and is steadily evolving, even down to his speech patterns. “The division between Hulk and Banner is starting to blur a little bit. You have a Hulk that can actually express himself without being angry. There are sentences, yes. We’re getting into like a five-year-old.”

Ruffalo sees the evolution of Hulk as a character parallel to the progression of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Oddly enough, I joke with people that this is like doing a TV show where you shoot one episode every three years. There’s a continuity to it and when we talked about it with Marvel or Kevin [Feige], we really do talk about it as the character’s progression. I’ve been able to have a lot of say in where it goes and you’re also dealing with a new script and a new world but the characters feel like they’re making a journey. It does feel like one goes to the next and goes to the next. It feels like a long serial which is nice.”

While Stark and Banner are the Science Bros, “Infinity War” has the added element of the most technologically-advanced nation in the universe, Wakanda. Ruffalo said the team must recognize their collective skills and come together — “there’s no way to overcome what they’re facing without in some way coming to terms with their differences and embracing their diversity. That’s essentially a core value of the film and that together, only together, can they triumph.”

Chadwick Boseman shares his thoughts on opening Wakanda to the world!

Black Panther has been busy as the newly crowned king of Wakanda — dealing with his father, King T’Chaka’s death while trying to restore order in a country full of unrest. Now T’Challa will have to deal with a crisis of colossal proportions — Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” is coming to Wakanda!

In Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” in theaters now, viewers got a peek at the mysterious, technologically-advanced world of Wakanda. Why the notoriously elusive country decided to open its door to outsiders? The King himself—Chadwick Boseman—explains that T’Challa wants to do what’s best for the greater good. “You have a world problem with Thanos, a problem that affects everyone in the world. So Wakanda is on the world stage and we’re obviously advanced in a way where we can help with the situation.”

As for the Avengers, they’ll be awakened to new experiences once they step foot into Wakanda. “They’re in my world so it’s interesting to have them enter our space, which is not something that happens all of the time,” said Boseman.

He expanded on what it’s like to have the team members come together, “I think it’s important for us to give the flavor of Wakanda, and they’re really adjusting to our space. That will be part of the fun of the movie. And the Guardians entering it, obviously, there is a clash, all of that is conflict. It’s not conflict between us necessarily. It is an emotional, psychological, social conflict.”

Okoye (Danai Gurira), Black Panther/T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson) and Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan)

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the largest assembled cast of Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, which means the actors get to work with other cast members they may not have met before. “I can tell you what it feels like today. It’s fun to see, especially because we have not had a lot of opportunities to work together and when you look at actors that you respect and revere and you see them doing their thing, it’s not just about the characters but the cast members. It’s fun to listen to people tell stories,” mused Boseman.

Coming off the success of “Black Panther,” Boseman can now enjoy his place among the Super Heroes. “It’s a lot of pressure because I don’t have time to joke when we were shooting ‘Black Panther,’ it’s serious all the time. In this case, you don’t have all the weight on your shoulders, so you have more comfort. We’re sharing the weight. Which is actually what’s happening with the super heroes as well, because they could not deal with Thanos alone. I think there is a lot of comfort in having people who are so good around you.”

As for how the King’s warriors, the Dora Milaje, feel about the new visitors? Skepticism is obviously going to be the fiercely protective faction’s first assessment. “Infinity War’s” own Hulk, co-star Mark Ruffalo, joked that it’s very much a “there goes the neighborhood” situation.

Boseman agreed, “There goes the neighborhood, that is a good way of saying it.”

True Believers, we’re inching closer to culmination of the last decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War,” in theaters April 27!

Last summer, had the opportunity to visit the “Avengers: Infinity War” set and now we’re allowed to share with you all the things we learned about the final chapter phase of the MCU. [Warning: If you want to head into the film knowing nothing, do not proceed ahead!]

With that warning in mind, let’s begin and peep some new photos while you’re at it:

[Updated Thursday, March 15]

[1] Source Material. “Avengers: Infinity War” will deviate from the source material. So don’t go in expecting THE INFINITY GAUNTLET, the 1992 six-issue run.

Mark Ruffalo, who plays Hulk/Bruce Banner, revealed during the visit, “It’s so different from the comic books. There’s elements that are clearly the same, but when you really start to get into the story, everything changes.”

He goes on to add, “[Infinity Gauntlet] is informative…but then again it just gets so off of the topic that it starts to become a little confusing.”

[2] Witness the King. Hot on the heels of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” our set visit was able to witness a scene unfold as our Avengers — a fully bearded Captain America, a platinum blonde Black Widow, a visibly-wounded Vision holding on to Scarlet Witch, Falcon, War Machine wearing STARK leg braces, and Bruce Banner — make their way off the Quinjet in the country of Wakanda. Our current roster of Avengers are greeted by King T’Challa, the Dora Milaje, and Bucky.

Some of our heroes have not seen each other in a very long time following the events of Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War.” Steve and Bucky embrace while Sam approaches with a quip, “Are you gonna snap and kill someone if they say bologna sandwich?”

T’Challa asks, “How big of an assault should we expect?”

“A pretty big one, sir,” Cap replies.

As seen at the end of “Black Panther,” T’Challa has brought Wakanda out of the shadows. Is the nation ready for Thanos to bring the fight to them? That’s left to be seen.

[3] Avengers (Re)Assemble. As highlighted in the scene above, some of our heroes will be meeting each other for the first time, while others haven’t seen each other since the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” or “Captain America: Civil War.”

For instance, our Avengers are meeting the healed Bucky, now known to his Wakandan allies as “White Wolf.” Banner has been missing in action on his cosmic adventure, and may know how big a threat Thanos really is.

Get prepared for tons of amazing pairings!

[4] Children of Thanos. The Mad Titan himself will not be operating alone. As we’ve seen in the trailers, Thanos likes to get his hands dirty but he also has those to do his bidding. Enter the Children of Thanos. While on set, we were shown maquettes of Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight, Cull Obsidian, and Corvus Glaive. Get a glimpse of the Children of Thanos maquettes during our D23 2017 coverage here.

Maquettes of Smart Hulk, who we caught a glimpse of in “Thor: Ragnarok” and angsty Tween Groot, as seen in the end credits of “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” made an appearance.

[5] Costume Upgrades. You can bet our heroes are going to look their baddest and sharpest versions as they take on the Mad Titan. We’ve already seen Bucky and Cap get some upgrades thanks to Wakanda’s source of Vibranium. Spidey has a pretty sweet revamp courtesy of Tony, while Rhodey has STARK leg braces to help him navigate the injuries he endured during “Captain America: Civil War.” We can expect these aren’t the only heroes who will leveling up their armor.

That’s all we can share for now, but keep it on as we start rolling out interviews with the directors, screenwwriters and stars over the next few weeks!

[6] IMAX. The Russo Brothers revealed the entire film was shot by IMAX Arri 65 cameras. With unbelievably larger-than-life characters, the IMAX cameras helped the directors frame the shots and capture the intricate beauty of the exotic landscapes. Not only that, the evolving visual effects technology will push what Josh Brolin can do as a performer.
