AceShowbiz - Disney and Marvel have been so elusive when it comes to their upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War". Frustrated fans have been trying to get leaked sneak-peek or teasers to sate their curiosity, just like how they found leaked screenshots of "Infinity War" trailer in mid-November. As expected, some leaked trailer clips and a film scene found their way out on the internet.
The clips were leaked by Reddit users via Vimeo. The footage wasn't long and mostly didn't have any sound, but it gave the fans a picture of what's going to happen to our beloved heroes. A clip featured Proxima Midnight battling Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Falcon attacked Proxima from up close and bearded Captain America managed to catch her spear.
Another clip showed Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) blowing up a truck. There was also an additional clip of Scarlet Witch with her romantic interest, Vision (Paul Bettany), as the two looked at each other longingly. As previously reported, there was a leaked set photo of the two kissing by a window. Moreover, both Olsen and Bettany hinted that the new "Avengers" film would dive deep into their characters' relationship just like in the comic book.
An approximately two-minute clip showed the Guardians of the Galaxy sneaking into The Collector's (Benicio Del Toro) residence, only to find out that Thanos (Josh Brolin) was already there before they did. The team was witnessing Thanos interrogating The Collector in order to know the location of Reality Stone. The Collector kept telling the mad titan that he sold the stone without realizing the value of the stone. Thanos was shown to be aggravated and the scene got more intense when Drax (Dave Bautista) was determined to kill Thanos despite the warning of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana).
The clips on Vimeo were removed almost instantly. Several sites had also taken down their leaked footage as requested by Disney and Marvel. In the past, Marvel attempted to divert attention from leaked footage by releasing their official trailer earlier. It is unknown whether the studio will use the same treatment for this leak incident. Fans are getting more agitated by Marvel's slow-moving actions as opposed to getting more excited for the film. Maybe this time, the studio finally listens to their fans' demand.
"Avengers: Infinity War" is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff and Tom Holland. The film is set to open on May 4, 2018 in U.S. theaters.
