While millions of viewers watched the big game between Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, one significant film franchise dropped its latest trailer.
Avengers: Infinity War New Trailer
On Sunday, Feb. 4, Marvel Studios has dropped the latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer featuring a plethora of characters that will star in this film. Fans see Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) inside a spaceship while Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) comforts Vision (Paul Bettany).
The video also teases a fully assembled Guardians of the Galaxy team, including Groot and Rocket Raccoon hanging out with Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Fans also get a glimpse at the grim-looking Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and a determined Nebula (Karen Gillian) as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) receives a vibranium shield from Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
The trailer ends with Rogers' ragged tag group of Avengers, along with Black Panther's warriors, confront Thanos's (Josh Brolin) army while the Mad Titan menacingly stares into the camera.
YouTube Community Reacts
When Marvel Studios posted the 30-second trailer onto the video-sharing company's website, fans immediately shared their opinions.
"That combination of Dr. Strange and Iron Man gave me goosebumps," wrote one YouTube user.
"The best 30 seconds of my life," commented another YouTube user.
However, some fans used their soapbox to chastise the Marvel Studios about the visual aspects of the film.
"I like Marvel, but the CGI is a bit fake. I really hate to say this but compared to other Marvel movies, the CGI is really not that good," stated another YouTube user.
