Update: The full-length Avengers: Infinity War trailer is now online.
Destiny is finally arriving: Marvel has confirmed Avengers: Infinity War's full trailer will be released today. But what time exactly can you expect to get your next proper look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe's epic culmination?
Infinity War is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and, now Black Panther has decimated the box office, all eyes are on the next entry in the MCU. Bringing together pretty much every hero from across the shared universe to stop Mad Titan Thanos, it promises superhero spectacle on a scale that's never been seen before. So far Marvel has provided very little footage of the film - only a teaser trailer last November and a short 30-second spot at the Super Bowl - but that's all going to change soon.
Marvel has announced that the Infinity War trailer will release on Friday, March 16, but haven't said when exactly. Typically, trailers for Disney releases premiere on one of the company's networks - Good Morning America or Jimmy Kimmel on ABC, or Monday Night Football on ESPN. However, there doesn't appear to be any synergized tie-in for the full Avengers 3 trailer, meaning it will presumably debut straight to Marvel's YouTube channel (and thus on the hour).
Based on prior Marvel form, we predict the Avengers: Infinity War trailer will release at 9am PST/12pm EST/4pm GMT, exactly 24 hours after the initial announcement. It's could be a little earlier (any hour after 6am PST/9pm EST/1pm GMT fits Marvel's strategy) but based on previous releases that time is most likely.
The first Infinity War teaser broke the view record for the first 24 hours on release, something the new trailer could definitely come close to. Anticipation is certainly high, especially after a slew of set visit reveals, and with it now almost four months since the teaser fans are desperate for another look.
As for what we can expect in the trailer itself, that's harder to say given how close to their chest Marvel has been holding their secrets on the film. More Wakanda seems likely, given both Black Panther's success and its prominent position in much of the pre-release hype; T'Challa's homeland serves as the backdrop for much of the third act. Of course, what most people want to see is more of big bad Thanos, who will become so powerful once he collects some of the Infinity Stones that he'll be able to throw an entire moon.
