The record-breaking trailer for Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity war has received the Lego treatment, complete with threats from blocky Thanos. Fans spent months waiting for the first Infinity War trailer to arrive, to the point where some had started to wonder if the trailer in question would show up before the end of 2017. Thankfully, the wait finally ended about a week ago, with the Infinity War trailer arriving in all its glory.
Some fans thought Infinity War's trailer lived up the hype leading up to it, while others were a tad underwhelmed. That said, the trailer's release was just as big an event as most had predicted it would be, with the trailer quickly smashing through online viewing records. It's not surprising though, as it's hard to think of a superhero film this highly anticipated since the original Avengers movie hit theaters back in the summer of 2012. Infinity War promises to change the MCU as fans know it, and the hype train is sure to only increase speed as the months go by.
In the meantime though, Youtube's dt98films has taken it upon itself to craft an Avengers: Infinity War Lego trailer, featuring blocky renditions of all the MCU's resident heroes and villains. Well, at least the ones that actually made it into the trailer. Alas, poor Hawkeye. Anyway, the full video can be seen above, complete with the Lego version of Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor.
One of the clear standouts in the Avengers: Infinity War Lego trailer - just as in the actual trailer - is of course Thanos, who in Infinity War will finally emerge from the shadows of space to try and take out Iron Man, Cap, Thor and the rest of the team once and for all. While Lego Thanos clearly doesn't much resemble his cinematic Josh Brolin counterpart, he at least looks closer to Thanos' classic appearance, lending more of a comic book feel to the Lego version of the trailer.
More faithfully reproduced from the trailer is Captain America's beard, which quickly became a hot topic after the Infinity War trailer arrived. Also present is an amusing Lego rendition of Peter Parker's Spider-Sense, which isn't easy to try and do, as arm hair isn't exactly a natural addition to a Lego character. Still, the creator clearly tried, and earns points for effort. Better looking is the Lego version of the running group shot that quickly became a hallmark of the trailer.
