Kevin Smith calls Avengers: Infinity War a "gigantic Marvel masterpiece"

I think if the movie were to get complicated at points, that you have to balance the film out. Yet somehow, Marvel once again defied the odds and the skeptics to craft yet another cinematic comic masterpiece.

And the most important Friday of 2018 is upon us. While attending the Avengers: Infinity War Hollywood premiere on Monday, Hemsworth spoke with Variety (via Digital Spy), and opened up about the reboot that aims to pick up where Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones left off.

As the movie progresses, the stakes get higher, so the tone will shift as the movie progresses.

Dan Casey is the senior editor of Nerdist and the author of books about Star Wars and the Avengers. We know the locations of five infinity stones; it's just the soul stone of whose whereabouts are revealed later in the film.

The Avengers: Infinity War Character and Level Pack is available to download as part of Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2's Season Pass ($14.99) or as a standalone download ($2.99). The legends then have to fight Thanos, but the group are taken down nearly immediately.

"And the idea is there is so much in this movie; that even if you get a spoiler, the other 99 percent of the movie is going to blow your mind".


"It's our longest rough cut of any of the four movies".

Some reviewers felt like while it was awesome, the film is not flawless.

The other reason certain emotional beats don't work is due to a lack of character development. Critics advise viewers to expect the unexpected because the trailers do not do the film justice. This is especially the case when Infinity War has to move on to another story or character beat in order to keep up the film's brisk pace and wrap up in a reasonable amount of time.

With several dozen Marvel characters to juggle, Infinity War's main narrative drive comes from Thanos.

The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of numerous key players in Infinity War - alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly - and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019. He's just floating in wreckage before they pull him in. Coming back to the question of whether Avengers: Infinity War lives up to the hype and anticipation, the movie doesn't exceed expectations even though it does meet those expectations.

So, just to summarise where we are in terms of Infinity Stones and who has them. Obviously Marvel isn't going to end things like that, far from it, and in fact there will be a phase 4 (and presumably beyond).
