Warning: SPOILERS for Avengers: Infinity War
The latest entry in Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers series has had its way with Avengers: Infinity War, not only highlighting some of the movie's standout moments, but revealing major spoilers as well. Between character deaths and third-act revelations, Honest Trailers has no mercy for any of its spoiler-phobic fans.
After 10 years, the MCU finally brings Thanos into the action in Avengers: Infinity War as he finishes his search for the coveted Infinity Stones. The titular heroes are divided, scattered across the universe as they pursue the Mad Titan before he can successfully snap his fingers and wipe out half of all living things. And, now that Avengers: Infinity War has been released on Blu-ray and digital, any fans who missed the action in theaters are well aware of how things ultimately played out. Thanos succeeded in his plan, most of the Avengers have perished, and all hope appears to be lost. That said, any fans who haven't yet caught the epic second Avengers sequel might want to steer clear of the most recent episode of Honest Trailers, given it's full of spoilers that give away the most significant plot points in the movie.
In the Screen Junkies Honest Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, everything from the finger snap to unexpected cameos are front and center. The first spoiler starts off big, showing Thanos being stabbed in the chest with Thor's new axe, Stormbreaker. The trailer then reveals Peter Dinklage's character, the Dwarf King Eitri (who was kept hidden from audiences prior to Infinity War's release), as well as the revelation that Xandar (the planet the Guardians saved in Guardians of the Galaxy) has been decimated and that Loki has been killed. The trailer also gives away major reveals from the movie, including a shot of Groot wielding Stormbreaker, Red Skull's appearance, Thor's new eye, and essentially all major character deaths, starting with Gamora.
The most significant spoiler is the reveal of Thanos' fatal finger snap, as well as all the destruction it causes. In fact, the trailer specifically highlights the deaths of T'Challa, Peter, all of the Guardians (save for Rocket, who survived), Doctor Strange, Bucky, Sam, Vision, Wanda, and Nick Fury (who, yes, is in the movie).
Nearly three months since the movie's theatrical release, it should be safe to assume that fans of the MCU have already seen the movie. That said, there are always exceptions. So, any fans who planned on holding out on Avengers: Infinity War until its home release ought to navigate the internet with caution. Though, at this point, fans should know better than to assume the internet won't be ripe with spoilers - especially with something as epic as Avengers: Infinity War.
