What Is The Avengers’ Plan To Fight Thanos?
The most recent trailer gives us an idea that the Avengers learn ahead of time that Thanos is on his way, which at least allows them to prepare a defensive strategy on home turf. Tony Stark can be heard talking about using what Thanos wants, so that does raise the possibility that they will use the Infinity Stones. But with the Mind Stone already in Vision’s forehead and the Time Stone in Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agomotto, those two are basically already weaponized. I think there is a good possibility that Vision is sent to Wakanda to hide and perhaps to lure Thanos in. The African nation is the most technologically advanced place on Earth, and thus stands the best chance of defending itself against the Mad Titan and the Black Order. There is also an instance in the trailer where Tony Stark and Peter Quill are debating the merits of a plan as a bemused Peter Parker looks on. This seems to be a different part of the movie and may involve them going to space or attacking Thanos’ ship, Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum style.
What’s Up With Hawkeye And Ant-Man?
Absences that initially seemed like oversights that would be remedied with subsequent trailers have become impossible to ignore with each passing trailer and poster that doesn’t feature these two characters. We know that both Clint Barton and Scott Lang are in this movie, so they are clearly being held back for some reason. What’s interesting is that we haven’t even got a quick shot of either, so does that mean that seeing them at all would reveal some spoilerish detail? The Russo Brothers have spoken about Hawkeye being on his own journey in this film in the wake of the events of Captain America: Civil War. There has been speculation that the character will adopt the Ronin identity in this film and that’s why he’s being held back. As for Ant-Man, he has his own sequel movie hitting after Infinity War although it appears to take place before the cosmic clash. Maybe these two characters come in for a major save at the end or maybe they are on their own secret crucial side mission in the film, possibly looking for the Soul Stone.
