Marvel Studios AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR!!! In Theaters Everywhere on April 27th!
Avengers Infinity War, the mother of all mothers is before us, who will we lose and what will be sacrificed? So many questions but not one was answered. Everything is on lockdown and the anticipation heightened. The mystery in the room was intoxicating, a black curtain projecting the Avengers “A” was cutting off half the room dropped and then in an instant our heart skipped a beat. The sight of seeing 24 Marvel superheroes LIVE is unbelievably breathtaking. I didn’t know where to look at first, it was crazy, the rush of emotions was bigger than me.
The man, the myth, the legend, Jeff Goldblum was the Grand Master Emcee, …. EPIC!!! Catch your breath, ready, set, go, to see who was there. Dave Bautista (“Drax”), Paul Bettany (“Vision”), Chadwick Boseman (“T’Challa / Black Panther”), Josh Brolin (“Thanos”), Don Cheadle (“James Rhodes / War Machine”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“Dr Stephen Strange”), Robert Downey Jr. (“Tony Stark / Iron Man”), Winston Duke (“M’Baku”), Danai Gurira (“Okoye”), Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”), Tom Hiddleston “Loki”), Tom Holland (“Peter Parker / Spider-Man”), Scarlett Johansson (“Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow”), Pom Klementieff (“Mantis”), Anthony Mackie (“Sam Wilson / Falcon”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch”), Chris Pratt (“Peter Quill / Star-Lord”), Mark Ruffalo (“Bruce Banner / The Hulk”), Zoe Saldana (“Gamora”), Sebastian Stan (“Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier”), Letitia Wright (“Shuri”), Director Anthony Russo, Director Joe Russo and last but not least Producer Kevin Feige.
The conference was an hour long and had ZERO revelation, NONE! Everyone was tight-lipped and they themselves don't know the ending. Each actor was given a script but they didn’t know if they themselves had the actual ending, now talk about secrecy! The press junket reminded me a lot of town hall meeting. Jeff would draw a name from the hopper, each ball had a talents name on it and that’s how questions would be asked and answered.
Here are some funny moments that literally made me laugh out loud.
When asked what Star-Lord's reaction is to seeing Earthlings for the first time in 30 years (and after being handed three microphones by fellow panelists eager to hear his answer), Pratt avoided answering altogether. "It might be best for you to see it, so I'm going to talk about bass fishing. OK?" Which he comically proceed to do for a full minute.
When asked how much of "Infinity War" can be considered "Black Panther 1.5," Boseman replied, "'Avengers: Infinity War' is 'Avengers: Infinity War.' It's not 'Black Panther 1.5' or 'Black Panther 2' or anything like that. I think we have a strong presence in the movie, and it was great to have some of these people in Wakanda. But it is its own movie." When Downey was called on to accept a press question, he countered with "Wait, me first. Who's better, Black Panther or Iron Man?" The asker admitted that he preferred the former, to which Downey replied "… damn, me too." He was then asked whether he will appear in 2019's "Untitled Avengers film" and after briefly consulting with Feige, determined he was allowed to reveal that they'd already filmed it. "Which means I guess I'm …," he began before course-correcting. "You never know. I've got to see the screening tomorrow night. If I die tomorrow, I'm going to be confused. We'll see."
Watch the videos yourself to catch all the shenanigans and most importantly to see the love and respect they have for one another. I will let you know I’ve seen Avengers Infinity War, buckle up, you’re in for a ride! Remember to breath when you're watching Infinity War, I found myself holding my breath A LOT! Most importantly tell whomever you're going with, NOT to ask any questions, make comments, turn off all cell phones and to just leave you alone until the end of the movie. OH, stay for credits, you don't want to miss anything. This is your public service announcement, your welcome. Thank you, Disney and Marvel, for inviting me to Avengers Infinity War, I'm still processing the magic.
