Do you know how it feels when you watch a film the whole world has been waiting to witness, before anyone else does? Do you know how it feels when you know everything and yet, you can’t give away any spoilers, because the last thing you want is HATE messages in your inbox?

To begin with, let me tell you this. The word ‘Infinity’ does not do justice to what I just saw, it is completely beyond your imagination! It is cataclysmic, gargantuan, farcical, entertaining, and everything that you would want in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a showdown between the evil and biggest superheroes ever. 

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ brings together everything we have seen till date, literally everything that has made our childhood. We have Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther…and Thanos. Well, the purple giant is the very definition of the word ‘VILLIAN’. Even Nick Fury must have never imagined he would live to see something like this. 

There are deaths that will leave you paralysed on your seat- the less we say the better (Okay, but you should prepare yourself for the first 15 minutes). There are some unexpected appearances and disappearances: we bet you won’t be ready for this.

Over the course of 2 hours and 29 minutes, ‘Infinity War’ does everything that Marvel fans expected and also brings in gazillions of other elements that you never saw coming.

This is a giant battle that we always knew was coming, but didn’t realise what it would have in store until we saw it hovering over us! Director Anthony and Joe Russo make your hearts race, give you a sugar-rush and make you laugh with amusing dialogues, leaving you thrilled.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

Honestly, it’s kind of amazing how 10 years of MCU fit accurately without any glitch. Whether it is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ meeting the Avengers for the first time or the banter between Iron Man and Doctor Strange, or Captain America returning with a badass beard or the Hulk trying to see what has happened on Earth in the past few years.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

From Tony Stark to Thor to Captain America, every hero’s story follows the right path. Every member plays an important role no matter what their screen-time is. And for the War Machine’s fans, the makers definitely have something special for you.

Coming to the story, Earth is in grave danger as a massive purple hunk with a huge chin called ‘Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) aims to destroy the planet. His ultimate aim is to find all the six infinity stones and fix them on his custom-made hand that holds the strength to bear the power of all six stones. The uncontrollable power will lead him to destroy anything he wants in this universe. Okay, basic villain stuff. 

This is a true blue Thanos film and there is no denying that. As you learn more about his character, you despise him for how he wants to be the tyrant lord. As he says in the trailer, “When he is done, half of humanity will still exist.” But despite the hate, you understand his agony when he makes the biggest sacrifice to get that one infinity stone (Any guesses which one is it?). The CGI Villian has a skin like an overripe berry and is the ultimate face of MCU villains. 

Against him are the good guys. Here comes alpha male Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Joining the two is Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who is all about millennials and pop culture reference, thoroughly entertaining us.

This is followed by Thor (Chris Hemsworth) meeting the GOTG. The epic exchange of words between Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Thor can’t be missed! Wish I could say more.

Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) get a vital screen presence in the film, taking us back to the origin of their relationship we had no idea about.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

Vision (Paul Bettany) and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) are trying to have a normal life. Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans) arrives, but his reunion with the Avengers is something for you to confirm yourself. Vision is obviously in danger and that goes without saying, but does Thanos gets what he wants. And if he does, then how?

The face to face confrontation that Thanos has with Iron Man, as he says, “The world will remember you” is not for faint-hearted.

Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is seen kicking some ass as usual, while Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) is having a tough time turning into the Hulk. Wish the two have a happy ending? Again…can’t say more!

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

While Tony and the gang are squabbling, we are transported straight to Wakanda.

A sudden urge to meet Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) arises thanks to all the hi-tech advancement that the world can finally see now. But Okoye (Danai Gurira) ain’t pleased, because when the king said they were opening their gates to the world, she thought it meant Wakanda would finally get a Starbucks, not have the entire team of Avengers descend upon them instead. 

And wait till you watch the clash between two major superhero gangs, thinking each is in team Thanos. Just imagine one asking, “What master do you serve?”. And an awkwardly confused hero answering “You mean – like Jesus?”(Come on make a guess, who are these two?)

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

FYI, Thor – the God of thunder, looks ravishing as ever, taking charge and breaking bones, but even he can’t guarantee that all is well and everyone will safe. But we must warn you about one thing. Your heart will bleed, no matter what! Thanos is here and so is the end of the world.

And most importantly Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage’s secret role is pretty amazing that will make you jump right out of your seat.  

The movie takes no time in establishing what’s at stake and who the super-villain is. In fact, you get introduced to the devil at the start itself. And it is then when you realise that NO ONE IS SAFE IN THE INFINITY WAR!

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

Marvel gives you everything they promised but at the same time, they throw curveballs that can shake your soul. The film gets stronger and more twisted as it proceeds to its ending.

Just imagine the effect this movie creates with all the superheroes crammed in one. The CGI totally works in favor of the movie, from war sequences to the representation of every newly introduced character, there is nothing that is not worth the investment.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Review: It Leaves You On A Cliffhanger© Marvel

I know we’ve got to wait for a year before we see what happens next, but I would want the Russo brothers to just give us another big movie (or Mayhem) now! Because, the sudden twists, turns, and deaths in the movie will leave you scarred for a long long time. ‘Infinity War’ will haunt you till the next movie comes out!

While the whole world is going crazy about the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ premiere, we recently found out something more about the only Marvel premiere that can top this – the premiere of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’.

If you’re a Marvel fan, you should remember how badly Mark Ruffalo fucked up during the world premiere of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ by accidentally live streaming the first 20 minutes or so of it.

I know people probably remember how this hilarious goof-up went down, but I would still like to refresh everyone’s memory. So basically, what went down was that Mark started an Instagram live for his fans but then forgot to turn it off before the movie started.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

He just kept the phone in his pocket, not realizing that over 2000 people, who were watching him live, could hear everything. No one was mad at him obviously, as this was probably the best thing that could happen to us. How often does an actor accidentally leak his own movie?

— wanda (@lizzieolses) October 11, 2017

While going through old reactions of this hilarious incident, I found this tweet that is a little relevant now because we kind of have an explanation of it finally, and no, Mark didn’t accidently leak it this time.

Marvel is gonna whoop Mark Ruffalo’s ass

— I love luke skywalker (@biperaltas) October 11, 2017

I thought Robert Downey Jr’s emotional speech at the premiere was the best thing we got before the release of ‘Infinity War’, but the cast’s appearance at Jimmy Kimmel Live might have just topped it.

When Jimmy Kimmel asked who was the least trustworthy when it comes to keeping the script a secret, we can all guess who everyone pointed at.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

But, it’s okay, Mark isn’t alone; Jimmy also said that when Tom Holland appeared on the show the night before, he also got the same title.

Tom Hiddleston obviously brought up the Thor incident which Mark tried to deny at first, calling it fake news. It’s okay, Mark, we were very thankful that you did that, can’t say the same about Marvel and Disney, though.

Then he went on to explain what exactly happened.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

Well, your mom was okay, but not you, Mark.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

This honestly wasn’t the time for you to have manners, Mark.

This went on for so long, that Disney had to step in. Since they couldn’t reach him, Mark said that they had to actually make someone go to him and personally tell him what was happening.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

Then, he was like “My phone’s not on” but, oh well. Just look at him recreating his hilarious reaction when he realized his phone was indeed on.

If Hulk Dies In 'Infinity War', We Now Know Why

And, now we know that if they kill off the mighty Hulk in ‘Infinity War’, Mark has only himself to blame.

It has been 10 years since Robert Downey Jr. first donned the Iron Man suit on the big screen and that one movie was just the beginning of the biggest movie franchise in the whole world.

Monday night was the premier of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and Marvel has come a long way in these 10 years, to say the least. The fans have been waiting for a really long time and we’re not the only ones excited and emotional about this movie.

Well, actually it was even more emotional for Robert Downey Jr because he’s the man who launched it all with ‘Iron Man’ in 2008. He got upfront and personal when he took the stage before dozens of his cast mates and told the crowd of thousands, saying, “I gotta few words. Hope you all brought a bag lunch.”

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

Referencing his battle with addiction, he said, “I want to talk about the past, present, and future. The past for me was 30 years of dependency, depravity, and despair… otherwise known as ‘An Actor Prepares!”

He went on, “The present is this moment of glory for all of us. And the future…? That is always uncertain. But looking at these friends behind me — it seems like things might brighten up after all.”

What a great feeling it must have been to be a part of something this huge.

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

He went on with his emotional speech and paid a tribute to the Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, the man behind the 19 interlocking blockbusters so far that have come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He said, “This is a miracle. And if any one of us took credit it would be heresy. It would be blasphemy.” Then he curtsied. “Screw it … you’re welcome!”

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

Talking about the entire MCU, he said that it is an ‘isolated incident’ in a sense that even with the huge cast, no one was ‘in competition with each other’, but instead were ‘competing for each other — and for you’.

Just to jog your memory, here’s the entire MCU cast at their Class Photo that they took last year.

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere© Marvel

He went on with his speech and said, “If you play a superhero in one of these movies, and it works, you become a big star! And it … is … meaningless. Unless you use that to achieve something higher. You have to take direction from peers, and your family, and occasionally even an actual director.”

He even mentioned how “dangerous” it is to direct a Marvel movie, saying, “It’s like a crucible. You either come out steel or dust.”

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

He also took this opportunity to talk about the lack of diversity behind the camera, before saying that things have finally started to change. He said, “Now at least half a directing team is female. Making these movies is so taxing that it is clearly a woman’s job. It’s essentially gestation. But we don’t know how to do that.”

While talking about diversity, he was sure to praise Black Panther, the movie that made history by introducing us to our first superhero and has so far earned over a billion dollars. “Wakanda rules the day and rightfully so.” He also did the iconic crossed-arm salute to Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, saying, “Wakanda forever!”

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

After praising Jon Favreau and Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, he explained that he had begun scribbling these thoughts just the night before, coming back from the international tour for the film.

“I was up late. I got a tattoo — I don’t want to talk about it! It’s none of your business! I was up late and wrote this, and …”

Robert Downey Jr Emotional Speech About His Journey As Iron Man At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

He had solid finisher for his rollercoaster of a speech, though. “I think this might be the greatest speech ever written! Or maybe I’m just emo and exhausted.”

I agree with both the parts, tbh.

It’s here, well actually, for us it’s almost here. I’m talking about the release of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, the most anticipated movie of the year and probably the biggest superhero movie of all time.

First Reactions To 'Avengers: Infinity War'

(That gif also represents how we’re running to the finish line, it’s so symbolic.)

While we have to wait for a few days for the release, some lucky bastards have already watched it and no, I’m not jealous at all, I’m just patiently waiting.

Okay, maybe just a little bit jealous because honestly, we’ve been waiting for what seems like a lifetime.

First Reactions To 'Avengers: Infinity War'

So, the premier happened last night in Los Angeles and critics’ early reactions are already rolling in. People finally have the answer to how Marvel actually managed to fit so many superheroes into one movie and get them to fight over some rainbow stones.

The premier last night was the biggest treat for the stars, press and lucky fans who got an early look at the movie and at least we also got something out of it. If the early reactions are any indication, you need to book that first day, first show right now.

Thanks for rubbing it in our faces, Brie.

WE SAW INFINITY WAR AND KNOW EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN IT OMG

Or, maybe we won’t have to wait. Mark, do your thing again man, we’re waiting. We’re counting on you.

In case Mark doesn’t come through this time, let’s just read these short reviews in the meantime while we wait for April 27.

The one thing to know to realize how epic the movie is the fact that Kevin Smith broke the embargo with a tweet that literally has the embargo time in it.

I am overwhelmed. The movie is epic beyond compare. LOVED it. My legs are still shaking. It’s a gigantic @Marvel masterpiece. So much to say but I’ll stay Silent Bob til Monday so as not to slip in spoilers. Suffice to say it’s gonna be a looooong year until @Avengers 4… pic.twitter.com/aHnsgj5MK0

See, now this is what we want.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the culmination of the last 10 years in the MCU, coming to a point of flawless action, dramatic effect, and a breathtaking appeal for its fans.  It is an impeccable achievement in both direction and visuals.  (1 of 2) #Avengers #InfinityWar pic.twitter.com/DVcxtI3Scs

— Clayton Davis (@AwardsCircuit) April 24, 2018

“Avengers: Infinity War” puts all the stakes on the table.  It could be “Empire Strikes Back” of superhero films, where you are put through the ringer OR Marvel could renege on everything we witnessed, & spit in the face of its fans in Part 2. Hope not #Avengers #InfinityWar 2/2 pic.twitter.com/pF3tCqxlAh

— Clayton Davis (@AwardsCircuit) April 24, 2018

I can’t wait to watch it now.

#InfinityWar is mostly great, somehow managing to mix all the elements of the MCU into one big mix-tape of fun, thrills, emotion… and despair. The ending is brilliant.

— Scott Collura (@ScottCollura) April 24, 2018

Me too, man.

Laughter. Fights. Tough decisions. Triumph and emptiness. @Avengers has it all. I feel the weight of what I just saw and the journey of the last ten years bearing down. Mama needs a drink. Wow. #infinitywar #ThanosDemandsYourSilence

— Grae Drake (@graedrake) April 24, 2018

Now, this sounds helpful.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is basically CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR times 20, except with less hero-on-hero fighting. I think people who loved the airport fight in CIVIL WAR like I did will go nuts for this film, and people who were bored will be 20 times as bored here. #InfinityWar

— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) April 24, 2018

But personally, if I’d seen #InfinityWar for the first time at a normal screening in a normal theater, I would have walked out afterward, bought another ticket, and walked right back in for a second viewing. That’s how much I was into it.

— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) April 24, 2018

WHAT IS THE ENDING? I NEED TO KNOW.

Another thing: I’ve been reviewing films for decades now, and I have never heard an audience react to the end of a film like the #InfinityWar audience reacted tonight. It was an astonishing experience. (And it’s another reason I want to see the film again in a packed house.)

— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) April 24, 2018

Okay then.

Avengers #InfinityWar is epic, emotional and most of all, shocking. Marvel just raised the stakes higher than you can believe. pic.twitter.com/KnqJICe7fC

Just an excuse to watch it multiple times.

#InfinityWar is a whole lot to process. I liked it a lot, and there’s so much that works, but it definitely is “Part 1.” The ending is amazing and worth the journey, but there is a LOT crammed into its run time. Overall really liked it but need a rewatch already. pic.twitter.com/3P3rd3ojHJ

— Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) April 24, 2018

I really like the first line.

#InfinityWar is everything you want, nothing you expect. It’s funny, surprising, dark, filled with delightful interplay between characters never seen on screen before. I know many filmmakers say they are trying to make a sequel in the vein of Empire Strikes Back, this succeeds.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 24, 2018

Okay, remember people, stay till the very end.

Infinity WOW! #InfinityWar. Lots of payoffs. Stay till the very END. That’s all I’m saying. pic.twitter.com/ch7adyFK21

We don’t even mind.

#InfinityWar may be the most expensive Hollywood movie ever designed to mess with its audience. People sure are going to sit through a lot of credits!

— erickohn (@erickohn) April 24, 2018

That’s a good idea, also that hashtag tho.

A lot to unpack? We don’t even mind.

#AvengersInfinityWar is the MCU’s biggest soap opera ever, and that’s not a bad thing. Feels more like a sequel to Guardians, and you’ll get to see what makes a Mad Titan tick. We will have A LOT to unpack soon.

— Mike Sorrentino (@MikeJSorrentino) April 24, 2018

What is the ending? I need to know now.

The final minutes of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR are heartstopping. Can’t wait for the next one. Marvel wins again. #AvengersInfinityWar #Avengers #InfinityWar

— Ben Barna (@sufferings) April 24, 2018

I will probably be the one clapping in the theatres.

From beginning to end, #AvengersInfinityWar is non-stop action. It’s really dynamic and jaw-dropping, but at times, it could have stopped for air and give us more substance on plot points. Loved it when the audience clapped as soon as #BlackPanther & #okoye entered the scene.

— Wilson Morales (@blackfilm) April 24, 2018

Captain America always brings it.

I saw #AvengersInfinityWar earlier tonight and I can say that it delivers. There’s a lot of really fun character interactions, some cool action moments (Thor’s powers, Iron Man’s suit), and a few powerful emotional beats. Most of the humor is 👌ðŸ?» Also Captain America is 💥 pic.twitter.com/WoZNPDpGXk

— Molly Freeman (@mollyrockit) April 24, 2018

Okay, we have some pros and cons.

MVPs: Thanos!!! Thor, most of the Guardians, Peter Parker, best ending of any Marvel movie, possibly the best end credits scene of any marvel movie.                                             Cons: Cg villains other than Thanos, teenage Groot, not enough black panther leads.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 24, 2018

Can’t wait to gasp.

I’ve left every Marvel movie with a sense of where the franchise was going. The strong “Avengers: Infinity War” is the first time where I’m utterly perplexed about what’s next. There were audible gasps at the NYC screening. pic.twitter.com/xouqNzh7ps

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you will have noticed that Benedict Cumberbatch has slowly and steadily gained a massive fan following over the years. Well, for us it started with his unparalleled portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. His charming arrogance and his trademark I -don’t-give-a-f**k attitude wrapped us in a spell that left us wanting more everytime.

And then came Doctor Strange. Whether you love or hate superheroes, Dr. Strange was definitely a character that could not be ignored. From saving the world to using the Time Stone, Cumberbatch nailed Strange down to the last detail.

Dr. Strange Tells Us If He'll Survive 'Infinity War'© Marvel

With ‘Avengers’ coming up with their next mind-blowing installment, we can’t stop obsessing over what’s in store for the Marvel superheroes this time. The Russo brothers are already breaking records even before the film has hit the screens as the trailer got 230 million views within 24 hours.

So, when MensXP got the rare chance for a tete-a-tete with the star cast of the film in Singapore, we unleashed a barrage of questions to satiate our anxious souls, and of course, our readers.

Speaking to Benedict Cumberbatch, aka Dr. Strange himself, we discovered a lot more than we thought we would, about the man with the magic red cape.

MensXP: Do you read comic books? Are you a fan of the Avengers?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Well, I do read comic books now than earlier. I am a massive Marvel fan though, massive MCU fan. I have watched the films, more than I have read the comics. But now having got this role, I have started to read more

MensXP: The Sorcerer Supreme vs The God of Mischief. Who would win?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Definitely the Sorcerer Supreme (smiles), judging by Ragnarok, it’s all tied all.

Dr. Strange Tells Us If He'll Survive 'Infinity War'© Priyadarshini Patwa_Mensxp

MensXP: Your own solo movie vs a movie with every MCU character. What was more challenging?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Different challenges, not more or less. You have a lot of burdens if it’s your film that you are carrying but at the same time, you have to both protect your character integrity and how you manage to be part of a much bigger picture. It’s a tiny square in a huge maze, Avengers family.

MensXP: Will we get to see Dr. Strange use the Time Gem to save the day again in ‘Infinity War’?

Benedict Cumberbatch: You will have to wait and see (grin)

MensXP: Will you survive Thanos’ assault on Earth? Any plans for Dr. Strange 2?

Benedict Cumberbatch: You will have to see that (laughs). You will need to watch the film to see if he makes it out the film alive. I said in the first film that Dr. Strange will be back and I have been back in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, I have been back in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, so if I will be back again? You will have to wait and see.

Dr. Strange Tells Us If He'll Survive 'Infinity War'© Marvel

MensXP: There’s a big match on TV and your wife wants to have dinner from a place that doesn’t deliver? What would Doctor Strange do?

Benedict Cumberbatch: He will probably portal himself to the restaurant and come back with the food and of course, pause the game as well, stop time!

MensXP: After all the interviews if Dr. Strange could go somewhere instantly to relax where would he go?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Hmm, a hammock or my bed or a spa (laughs), so many places like these, where normal people get to relax. Would like to have dinner with friends or he might just sit down and watch a movie, who knows (grins).

MensXP: What should people expect from Dr. Strange?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Expect the unexpected. Well, he is a lot better at his craft, he will be seen doing some pretty cool stuff. He is more mature, but a lot funny and he is definitely growing up.

MensXP: When can we expect Doctor Strange to come down to India?

Benedict Cumberbatch: Oh, he is coming down to India, just after this Interview. I am going to portal myself and say ‘hi’ and then portal myself back.

This is the best year for Marvel fans with a good number of superhero movies lined up to entertain them thoroughly.

If you are a true Avengers fan, you know everything about the movie and beyond it. But do you know what’s the difference between Thor and Star-Lord? 

Come on, we bet you do. Well, if you don’t, then the former is a man and the latter a dude. Yes, that’s something the newly released clip from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ has established and it’s a damn interesting thing.

The latest clip shows Thor meeting the Guardians of The Galaxy, and we just can’t get enough of it.

With just a few weeks left for the film to hit the screens, the makers are treating their fans with new posters, trailers and now this awesome clip.

Well, before you think we are making this news up, let us tell you that this really happened. The clip was released at the 2018 Kids Choice Awards. In this small clip, Thor can be seen floating around in space and soon lands on the ship of the Guardians.

Gamora is seen examining him and Drax calls him the muscular “man” and not a “dude”. W3 soon sees Thor waking up and asking, “Who the hell are you guys?”

And as per reports in Screen Rant, this is Iron Man aka Robert Downey Jr’s favourite scene and now it’s our favourite too.

Check out the clip that is making everyone go crazy here:

Just when we thought the Hindi version of the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ trailer could not get any more awesome, someone has blessed us with a new trailer that has left us with tears in our eyes. Tears of laughter to be precise. 

Honestly, this fan-made trailer is simply epic and too good to miss. Wondering why? Because it has a twist inspired by the classic Bollywood movie ‘Sholay’.

Avengers: Infinity War (c) Marvel

 “Yeh haath humko dede Thakur.” That’s exactly what you will hear Thanos saying loudly! He is just as epic as Gabbar. Man! Amjad Khan would have liked this new version as well if he was alive today.

Well, the footage is same but it’s the dialogue from our evergreen movie that’s adding the Bollywood masala and entertaining us to another level. It’s fun to see how someone else’s dialogue can sync perfectly with the original trailer. A sheer delight for Marvel and Bollywood fans, we must say!

Avengers Sholay(c) Marvel

You have the ‘Sholay’ theme track setting the clip in motion with Iron Man aka Tony Stark repeating Thakur’s dialogue. We bet, never in his life would Robert Doney Jr. have thought that there would come a day like this. And we are going crazy over his desi avatar. 

You have Hulk and Black Panther using Veeru’s dialogue and Black Widow as the feisty Basanti is amazing AF! And wait till you see who is  ‘Angrezo ke zamaane ka Jailer’.

Avengers: Infinity War(c) Marvel

Despite it just being a fan-made trailer, everything is so well put that you can clearly mistake it for an original. Original or not, we are loving ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ team as Angaray Banay Sholay and we are sure you will too.

Check out the trailer now:

“Ab aayega maaza khel ka.”

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will hit the theatres on April 27.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, this movie stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chadwick Boseman among others.

We all know ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, is by no means going to be a regular superhero movie. The two-part finale is already making us lose our minds, and the recently released trailer further elevated that excitement.

There are no points for guessing things are pretty much going to change, not just for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but for all superhero fans out there, as the makers have been constantly hinting at some major exits or deaths of key characters. After all, it is Thanos vs the entire MCU this time.

And we guess you already knew who has the strongest chances of dying in the movie – Captain America.

After Cap received a kickass pair of shields from Black Panther in Wakanda, we were quite excited to see how the new ones, that look like extended claws, can replace the iconic red, white and blue shield, which was emblematic of his struggle.

But, by the time we got over this discussion, Chris Evans had already decided it was time for Captain America aka Steve Rogers to hang up his boots forever and exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Chris Evans Hints At Leaving Avengers Infinity War© Marvel Studios

According to an interview in The New York Times recently, Chris Evans, the first Avenger, confirms he will be leaving the Marvel franchise after the yet untitled ‘Avengers 4’.

“You want to get off the train before they push you off,” Chris said, which clearly means he has no plans to return after ‘Avengers 4’ that is expected to release in May 2019.

Now the question is how will Anthony and Joe Russo justify his exit? Unlike other superheroes, Captain America has no life or friends outside Avengers. This means, they cannot show him as simply retiring and settling in some other parallel world or dimension.

So, will the makers hold an epic showdown between Captain America and Thanos, which will eventually lead to Cap’s death? Will they then replace Steve Rogers with either the ‘Falcon’ Sam Wilson or the ‘Winter Soldier’ Bucky Barnes? The two were Rogers’ replacement in the comics.

Or will they honour Cap’s death and not pass the shield on to anyone, marking the exit of the character from the MCU forever?

Clearly, the fans aren’t taking it positively and being very vocal at the thought of losing their beloved superhero.

Chris Evans leaving the MCU is gonna hurt me so bad. I ain’t ready! #TeamCap #CaptainAmerica

So Chris Evens confirmed that Avengers 4 will be his last time as captain America. Wonder if Bucky or Sam will pick up the shield or if Captain Marvel will take his place as leader. #DoYouEvenComicBook pic.twitter.com/hblS7DFAji

So, considering Chris Evans won’t reprise his role as Captain America after Avengers (4) I’m thinking they may actually kill off Captain America to replace him with Bucky 👀

Well, we won’t have any idea as to how he dies until ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers 4’ releases, one thing’s for sure we’re going to miss you Cap.

Avengers: Infinity War is expected to release on April 27, 2018 with the follow-up film scheduled for a May 3, 2019 release date.

When we saw the Hindi version of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ trailer,( https://www.mensxp.com/entertainment/hollywood/43279-the-avengers-infinity-war-hindi-trailer-is-way-better-than-any-bhojpuri-movie-ever-made.html ) we didn’t think it could get any better than that. That was, in itself, the perfect parody, and that too unintentionally. But, a bunch of Malaysian guys are taking it up a notch (or, maybe down, we can’t decide).

Everyone is so excited about the upcoming Avengers movie and honestly, that is all we can talk about, after all, it’s probably the biggest release of the year. While we’re all desperately waiting for the movie to hit the screens, these guys found the perfect way to deal with the pain of waiting – by recreating the whole freaking first trailer.

But, no it’s not exactly a recreation. We all know that no one can reach the level of perfection that is the movie, but there is always the scope for making it more hilarious, right? That’s exactly what these students did.

Improving the original trailer (jk, don’t @ me), they made a low budget version and if the spoof doesn’t make you laugh, then you’re probably not human. Check it out!

They didn’t miss out a single scene, but the best part is the creative use of all the regular household things that you won’t ever find in the Avengers. Let’s see some hilarious highlights that deserve a special mention.

I’ll start with my favorite – the plates.

Okay, for the rest, watch the whole video, because it will honestly make your day. The video was so hilarious that even the Russo Brothers, the directors of ‘Infinity War’, replied with an actual open invitation to direct Avengers 5. How cool is that? 

Aiman. You guys are geniuses. Are you available to direct Avengers 5? https://t.co/8IIS3hacBu

We are all looking forward to their next Avengers movie, it’ll be the best one, I can feel it.

We all have our favourites when it comes to ‘Game Of Thrones’, but we all can agree mutually over the fact that no one can top the delightfully crass Tyrion Lannister.

His character’s evolution, his acting skills and dramatic timing of dishing out dialogues makes us all love him more.However, for all the fans who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms and missing Peter, there is a precious chunk of news that will put some life back into you. He is going to be in the new Avengers movie! Yes, that’s true. I seriously hope you have watched the trailer though.

Well, if you are wondering if he is disguised as someone which is why you couldn’t spot him, then let me explain. It is not your fault. He is indeed going to be a part of the movie but no one knows what character he is playing yet. Twitterati, as usual, had some observations though.

Wild prediction – might Dinklage voice one of the Black Order? I recall Feige teasing a few surprises last year when it came to the cast members lending their vocal chords to those characters’ CGI forms.

— Tom Buxton (@TomBuxtonUncut) March 16, 2018

remember when Peter Dinklage was announced to be in Infinity War and Avengers 4 and no one knew who he was playing? well i’m starting to think he’s the voice of one of the Black Order

Hoping they finally reveal what character Peter Dinklage is playing in @Avengers #InfinityWar thinking either The Watcher or Pip The Troll

— Justin Williams (@jwadewilli) July 22, 2017

Guess we’ll have to wait on that one to find out. But we have no trouble believing that he will kick-ass among the star-studded cast.
