Most of the Avengers survived the Age of Ultron, but another threat has been lingering in the Marvel universe since the end of 2012’s The Avengers, and he’s prepared to handle it himself. Last year, when Marvel Studios announced their full slate of films, which has since been shaken up to include 2017’s Spider-Man, a quick promotional teaser showed the mad titan himself, Thanos, with a complete infinity gauntlet to announce Avengers: Infinity War. Now, a high-res version of the image (via CBM) has debuted online, and is set to be included in a featurette for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray.

“It’s Thanos against everyone,” star Josh Brolin told us about the “Phase Three” capper late last year, which is believed to involve the Mad Titan’s quest to bring together the six Infinity Stones we’ve seen appear throughout the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will pen the scripts for the two-part feature which will also see Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo returning. Both parts of the film will be filmed entirely in IMAX.
“The intent with the Infinity War films is to bring ten years of accumulative storytelling to an incredible climax,” Joe and Anthony Russo previously said. “We felt that the best way to exploit the scale and scope required to close out the final chapter of these three phases, was to be the first films shot entirely on the IMAX/ARRI Digital camera.”
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is slated for release in theaters on May 4, 2018; Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.
