The latest poster for Avengers: Infinity War focuses on Thanos and his personal team, the Black Order. With the recent reveal of what the villains will look like back at D23, it was only a matter of time before they became part of the marketing material, and here we are. While they're not exactly the main focus of the poster, they're clearly important. It's likely they'll play a bigger role than we think in retrieving all of the stones.
Together, the three posters will make a banner, one large poster showcasing everything Avengers: Infinity War has to draw audiences in. The first poster included the majority of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy as a group. This included Spider-Man in a brand new suit, made by Tony Stark and also Doctor Strange. Not that it's a surprise that the two of them will be appearing on the roster.
The third poster really focuses on the mad titan himself, Thanos, though he's not dressed how we're used to seeing him. He isn't wearing his signature helmet for one. However, he does have the Infinity Gauntlet on his hand, and it looks like all of the stones are assembled in the gauntlet. This doesn't exactly spell victory for the Avengers, since it'll grant Thanos unlimited power. The Black Order feature at the bottom of the poster, all posed as if they're jumping into battle.

It's clear that the villainous team will play a key role in battle as well as retrieving the gems. But it'll be interesting to see how they combat the Avengers and if they have any chemistry at all with them. Surely Gamora and Nebula would be familiar with them since they're both daughters of Thanos. What's also interesting to see, is that Rhodey is featured on the Avengers roster poster. This implies that even after his injuries in Captain America: Civil War, he'll have recovered and be able to use the War Machine suit once more.
The last poster should be released very soon, and while it's only speculation at this point - it's likely that Captain America will appear on that one, since there are still some big players left to include on the marketing. Black Widow, Thor, Vision, Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket and Groot are all still to appear on these posters, but we probably won't have to wait much longer since the last one-sheet will likely appear before the Marvel Studios SDCC panel later today.
