Let's talk about Avengers Infinity War

New trailer is out... and it confirmed what I already knew.

I know this might be nitpicky and some may say nonsensical but it's my opinion.  I know we were talking about Thor: Ragnorok a few days back and someone mentioned that while it was a good and entertaining movie, it wasn't a "Thor movie" if that make sense.  And what I'm seeing from this trailer is much the same.  It may be a good movie.  It may be an entertaining movie... but not only does it sorta seem like I've already seen the "epic crossover showdown of heroes to stop a big bad villain" movie before but I also got the feeling that they kinda made a deal with the actors saying "hey if you sign up for this many movies we'll let you do one how you want it, screw the story, deal?"  We've watched and we've been able to enjoy these films because not only do they make good movies but they keep them true to the comics.  And I don't think they're taking that same sort of care now.

I know it might be a cosmetic thing but it's a tell IMO. 

Am I the only one getting that feeling?

Well Shogunn, after Thor 3, I am definitely more worried along those lines than I have been in a long time.  There's not a lot here that looks like the comics.  Even Thanos doesn't look like himself.  And, while this is a minor thing, he does look rather stupid without the helmet.  Nonetheless, what we're seeing here makes sense in regards to what they've done so far in the MCU.  It seems to be following naturally from previous stories, so that's something.  And at least the tone doesn't seem super jokey.

For awhile, Thanos was living alone on a planet, kind of being a farmer. He didn't wear his usual costume at the time. It might have been after he gave up being God.

Eh, I don't have any such impression.  Marvel has been building up to this pretty much from the beginning.  This has been planned long term.  It isn't something their throwing together in the current phase.  Plus there is nothing here.  It's just a trailer flashing scenes of the all the heroes, which is exactly what people want to see.  It really gives us on idea of what to expect.

What should give you an idea of what to expect is that this is being directed by the guys who did Winter Soldier and Civil War.  That should settle most of your worries right there.

Yeah, I see that my post sounded more apprehensive than I actually feel.  I'm sure this one will be good, but my confidence, which was about 100%, is definitely shaken some after Thor 3.  My point was that what we're seeing here makes sense in light of what we've seen in earlier movies.
