Avengers: Infinity War Footage Description from D23 Expo

And from the sounds of it, Infinity War looks set to crush expectations. Now it is gone.

After taking in the surprise visitor, the Guardians bring him aboard the ship where Mantis wakes the stunned hero, who is coming face-to-face with the Guardians for the very first time. Thor asks the motley crew. There's a cut to Loki holding the Tesseract. Spider-Man is on a school bus.

Spidey's not the only hero who gets a new look in the film - the footage showed a grizzled-looking Captain America (Chris Evans) sporting a thick beard and a sleek, dark iteration of his costume. Then Thanos emerges from a smoky portal as Brolin's voice-over purrs a menacing suggestion: he's here to bring "balance to the universe".

- Thanos wears the Infinity Gauntlet, and pulls down part of a moon to battle the Avengers on an alien planet.

When Thanos finally goes to war with the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he'll have shed his gaudy space regalia in favour of a much more casual pair of space pants and an armoured, sleeveless shirt, ideal for showing off his ridiculously muscular space arms. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.

LOTS of Avengers fighting! That's without even getting into the panel itself, which saw Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie-a.k.a. about a quarter of the movie's cast-sharing the stage.
