Avengers: Infinity War - Everything Missing From The Trailers

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (0:12) - Bruce, Nat, & Rhodey

The scene of Bruce Banner, Black Widow, and War Machine looking up at the barrier in Wakanda isn't in the movie. A similar shot of Bucky and Falcon standing outside and looking up at the Black Order's descending ships, though, is in the movie, which is also in the trailer, but not the shot of the rest of them. Although this particular scene isn't in the movie, there is a quick shot of War Machine warning everyone that more ships were landing out in the distance that seems to have been taken from this sequence.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (0:48) - The Handshake

The Avengers going to Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War had been heavily teased leading up to the film's release - and that was evident in the movie's final trailer. When the heroes arrive in the African nation, they are greeted by King T'Challa and the Dora Milaje. The shot of T'Challa smiling at Steve Rogers as he shakes his hand is still in the movie, but the shot immediately before that, which shows Steve initiating the handshake, isn't in the final cut. Instead, the movie has a scene of Bruce Banner bowing to T'Challa, something that Wakandans certainly do not do in their country.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (0:57) - Stark's Plan

One of the highlights of the trailer is the banter between Peter Quill and Tony Stark, and that's emphasized in this scene of Star-Lord telling Iron Man that his plan just isn't good and that he should make the plan instead because it might actually be good. While the scene made it into the movie, bits of it were different. It was a different cut that eventually led to Peter Parker asking if Quill about Footloose.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (1:06) - T'Challa & Steve Rogers' Transport

Another T'Challa and Steve Rogers scene from the trailer that didn't make it into the final cut was a quick shot of them riding the Wakandan transport to the battlefield. A similar scene showing Black Widow riding another transport vehicle was shown in the trailer and still made the final cut, even though it appeared to have been a truncated shot to allow for another scene involving the Hulkbuster.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (1:13) - Thor Using Stormbreaker

One of the biggest scenes shown in the trailer that was removed from the actual movie was a scene in which Thor uses Stormbreaker for the first time, with Groot and Rocket Raccoon both gazing in amazement. Although the trailer doesn't show Thor with a weapon (otherwise the trailer would spoil the movie), Thor is clearly at Nidavellir, and he's seen using his lightning for the first time. That scene comes after Thor, Eitri, and Groot build Stormbreaker, but audiences don't get to see that part until Thor and his newfound companions arrive in Wakanda. Perhaps it'll be a deleted scene.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (1:25) - Thor's Torture

Infinity War opens with Thanos and his Black Order taking the Space Stone/Tesseract from Loki, which first required Thanos to torture Thor in order to get the non-Asgardian to give up the Stone's location. In the trailer, audiences can see Thor screaming, but that particular shot wasn't in the movie. The reason for that scene's excision could be because Thanos actually tortured Thor using the Power Stone, which isn't shown in the trailers. If it was, then that would most likely be a spoiler.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (1:46) - Only 2 Infinity Stones

Marvel tried to hide the fact that Thanos arrives in Wakanda with more than two Infinity Stones on the Gauntlet, something that was mistakenly revealed in one of the film's promos on Twitter. In this particular scene, Thanos is shown with only the Power Stone and Space Stone, but in reality, when he arrives in Wakanda in the final cut of the movie, he already has five of the six Infinity Stones, including the Soul Stone. The only Stone he didn't have yet was Vision's Mind Stone. Again, it was all meant to be misdirection.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (2:03) - Peter Introducing Himself

One of the comedic bits from the trailer was Peter Parker introducing himself to Doctor Strange. While Peter uses his first name, Strange introduces himself as normal, as Doctor Strange, to which Peter then replies, "Oh, we're using our made-up names. Then, I'm Spider-Man." The scene itself does appear in the movie but slightly altered. A different cut of the same sequence is in the movie, with the only dialogue difference being "I'm Spider-Man, then." The rest of it is pretty much the same, with some small differences here and there.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer (2:09) - Spidey Swinging

Showing Spider-Man swinging on Titan was a great way to show off his new Iron Spider suit since audiences only got a brief look at it at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017. The scene in the movie, however, is much, much more epic than the one in the trailer, mostly because it shows off the costume's new arms/legs as well as Peter catching the Guardians of the Galaxy as they are floating in the air.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot (0:02) - Tony, Peter, & Strange

Tony Stark Spider-Man and Doctor Strange in Avengers Infinity War

The banter and team-up between Tony Stark, Peter Parker, and Doctor Strange made for great fun in Avengers: Infinity War, but there were a few scenes of theirs from the trailers that didn't make the film's final cut, as previously mentioned. One of those scenes was a shot of the three of them looking out of Ebony Maw's ship. Instead of the three of them looking out of the ship's window and gazing upon Titan, the scene begins with them scrambling to figure out how to land the ship as they reach the deserted planet.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot (0:08) - Thor, Groot, & Rocket

Thor with Rocket and Groot in Avengers Infinity War

Thor, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon made for another great team-up in Infinity War. And, interestingly, there's also a shot of them looking out of a ship's window that was altered for the movie. The scene that ended up in the final cut is more zoomed in and obviously shows Thor without an eye-patch, compared to the shot of them looking out of the Milano's pod in the Super Bowl promo. It's not a big change, but just like the whole eye-patch thing in the first trailer, Marvel was trying to keep spoilers at bay while marketing the film.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot (0:12) - Are You Ready?

While this shot is in the movie, it's entirely different in the trailer. First off, Thor still has an eye-patch despite receiving an eye from Rocket Raccoon just a few minutes prior and he's not holding a rope that attaches to the pod Rocket is flying. Furthermore, instead of asking Rocket if he's ready, Thor merely says, "Leave that to me." Then, he begins to swing Rocket's pod in circles before launching the ship out towards the next ring. Granted, putting all of this in the trailer might've spoiled this part of the movie for some people.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot (0:14) - Cap's New Shield

This was the first time that audiences really got to see Steve Rogers' new shield(s) in Infinity War, but the scene wasn't included in the movie since the entire sequence cut from T'Challa telling his people to give Rogers a new shield to them riding their transports towards Wakanda's barrier on the battlefield.
