TOP 5 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT AVENGERS INFINITY WAR

1. The Infinity Stones: Where Are They Now?

As of the release of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), five of the six Infinity Stones have surfaced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Space Stone (also known as the Tesseract) was first revealed in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), and now resides with Loki. The Mind Stone, which was housed in Loki's staff until Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and now is in the possession of Vision. The Power Stone, first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), is under control of the Nova Corps. The Reality Stone (also known as the Aether) was first seen in Thor: The Dark World (2013), and was placed in the care of the Collector. With the destruction of the Collector's Vault in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), its whereabouts are unclear. The fifth and final known stone, the Time Stone (also known as the Eye of Agamotto), was revealed in Doctor Strange (2016) and is under his protection in Kamar-Taj. The whereabouts of the sixth stone, the Soul Stone, is unknown and may appear in this movie.

2. A Little Context Before You Watch the Movie 

It has been confirmed by the Russo brothers that what happened in Captain America: Civil War (2016) will still continue in this movie where the teams will still be divided. The film will conclude the Thanos and the Infinity Stones story arc, and the plot will follow the Avengers joining forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos from destroying the universe with the six Infinity Stones.

3. The Dope New Shield: Made in Wakanda

Steve Rogers wields a new shield in this film, made from Wakandan Vibranium, that splits apart into two arm guards. This is based on two different shields Rogers wielded in the comics: one shield was provided by the Black Panther, and the other split apart into two guards. The tech reflects his surroundings, apparently made of vibranium — the same rare naturally occurring meteoric ore that Black Panther’s suit is made of — which derives from the African nation. And according to the recent reveal that Shuri is the tech genius behind her brother’s superhero gadgetry, it’s pretty safe to say that Cap’s new gauntlet shield was invented by the Princess of Wakanda herself.

4. Hey Thor! How About a New Hammer!?

Having lost his hammer Mjolnir in Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Thor constructs a new hammer in this film, known as Stormbreaker. Stormbreaker is named for the Asgardian hammer given to Thor's comrade Beta Ray Bill. It is a war hammer-ax, based on the Marvel Ultimate Mjolnir.

5. The White Wolf < The Winter Soldier

Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bucky Barnes will go by the code name 'White Wolf' in Avengers: Infinity War, as he was referred to by the children of Wakanda in the after credit scene in Black Panther (2018). White Wolf in the comics was T'Challa's adopted brother Hunter who was the leader of Wakanda's secret police: The Hatut Zeraze.

TOP 5 HOLLYWOOD MOVIES RELEASING THIS SUMMER

5. Christopher McQuarrie's - 'Mission: Impossible – Fallout'

Release Date - July 27 | Starring - Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson

'Mission Impossible' is always exciting and amazing franchise to watch because of its superior quality and the breathtaking action sequences. With Christopher McQuarrie who previously directed 'Rogue Nation' and 'Jack Reacher' returning to the director's chair, 'Fallout' looks promising and will no doubt be another highly successful film in the franchise.

4. J. A. Bayona's - 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'

Release Date - June 22 | Starring - Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard

With the earlier film in the franchise 'Jurassic World' grossing over 1.6 billion worldwide, fans were really excited about the sequel until they've watched the promos which received a mixed reaction. But, Jurassic World has a larger appeal from the worldwide audience and will surely be a blockbuster. But, will it succeed its predecessor in terms of story, screenplay, action, and box-office? We just have to wait and see.

3. Ron Howard's - 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Release Date - May 25 | Starring - Alden Ehrenreich and Emilia Clarke

With numerous rumors, suspicions, and overall a negative vibe surrounding the film, 'Solo' should be a very interesting film to watch primarily because of the difficulties it went through during production. Moreover, Han Solo is the most beloved hero in the Star Wars Universe and his backstory is something I'm excited to watch. Hopefully, the film doesn't disappoint!

2. David Leitch's - 'Deadpool 2'

Release Date - May 18 | Starring - Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin

'Deadpool (2016)' is a game-changer, the Rated R humor, action, and the execution inspired many Comic Book Films like 'Logan' and the audience responded to the film remarkably as it wreaked havoc at the box-office grossing over 780 million worldwide. 'Deadpool 2' already started to make a mark in the film community with its amusing promos and trailers with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin as Cable. Even though Tim Miller didn't return to direct the second installment, this film still looks fun and will surely be an entertaining ride.

1. The Russo Brothers' - 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Release Date - April 27 | Starring - Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans

Here comes the big dog, the mothership of all Comic Book / Superhero films, 'Infinity War' is tracking to make over 200 million dollars in its opening weekend and with all the hype 'Black Panther' is carrying right now, 'Infinity War' will no-doubt become the biggest Superhero film of all time with major developments in its storyline and characters. Let's hope the film delivers the way we anticipated.
