The first official trailer for next year's all-star superhero fest "Avengers: Infinity War" was released Wednesday morning, quickly becoming the top-trending video on YouTube with almost a half-million views before noon. But standing in his way are a whole slew of superheroes, including the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The trailer shows the biggest assembling of heros in a Marvel film so far, including Spider Man, Black Panther, Ant Man, Thor, the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Doctor Strange, Loki, Black Widow, Hawkeye and, right at the end of the preview, a special appearance by the Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The trailer also gave us our best look yet at the film's villain, Thanos (Josh Brolin), who has appeared in small cameos since the first Avengers movie in 2012, but is at long last coming after our heroes. "I know it will not be in ways people are expecting".
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.
Thanos (Josh Brolin), the powerful cosmic entity behind numerous events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, arrives on Earth to finish collecting the "Infinity Stone" gems that will make him all-powerful.
"So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could".
So begins the spine-tingling first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War released by Disney's Marvel Studios today, which also managed to somehow cram that same group into a two-minute clip, The Daily Mail reports. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after.
The most recent Marvel movie, the Taika Waititi-directed Thor: Ragnarok is now the 9th biggest movie of 2017 worldwide, having earned NZ$1.15b so far.
