I have a feeling this coming season of Agents of SHIELD will tie into Infinity War in the way it once did with Winter Soldier. 

Just a hunch based on the 17 minute preview for AOS.

The announcement yesterday of todayís trailer release had me pretty stoked, but the trailer itself left me feeling underwhelmed.

 While the trailer didn't live up to the hype in my opinion, it still hit a nerve in me. The slow AVENGERS' theme is amazing. Thanos looks, despite having a better CG face than Superman, pretty weird without his armor.

I really hope Marvel plans to introduce Warlock before this Thanos saga is done. Looking forward to an extended trailer in a few months for a better grasp of how epic this film will be.

-C!

James Gunn says to not look for Adam Warlock until AFTER Guardians Vol. 3.  

And he will not be appearing in Avengers 3 and 4.

Can't lie:  Yet-another generic, giant sky-hole; yet-another generic CGI horde army; and Thanos looking like a generic, intergalactic space-bouncer are my only main complaints.

But everything look else looks stellar.  Feels like they're really going for some (super) human drama in this one.

10 years in the making.  Unreal!

Have to agree with Thad that I found this underwhelming. Sometimes less really is more. And this is just... more, more and more. Blonde Black Widow and non-traditional Spider-Man costume seem like missteps.

Of course this is all caveated with this is a teaser. The movie will live or die on its story, pacing and character beats, and a teaser can only provides sketch-lines.

I am assuming maybe there is some deal with Netflix, for example, that figures into things. These legal things are tricky. You may be absolutely correct in that Marvel wouldn't give any control away, yet Disney still farmed out publishing rights to its characters to BOOM! comics even though Disney owns Marvel Comics. I also understand that the Marvel TV team is distinct from the film studio people, so are considered different operations within the overall company.

******

I remember reading before the first season of DAREDEVIL came out that all the actors in the Netflix shows signed contracts that contained stuff in them that said they had to be available to Marvel if it was decided they wanted to use the characters in any films. 

I think the main reason they may not show up is that the TV and Movie divisions just donít get along very well.

My question: once the MCU is done with Thanos, who else is there for the Avengers or anyone else to fight who counts as a world-threatening villain?

Can't use Doctor Doom, Magneto, Galactus (yes, not really a villain), the Skrulls (right?)...

Neither Graviton nor Count Nefaria are very interesting (everyone would laugh at "Nefaria" anyway). The High Evolutionary, perhaps? Kang seems like an obvious choice. (Bring in Immortus, too!)

I'd love to see a version of the Korvac Saga. Changes would have to be made, of course. I doubt Korvac would be from 3007 A.D. in a movie version. But he's incredibly powerful and his personality is very, very different from that of Thanos.

Skrulls are now on the table. The
prevailing rumors about Avengers 4 is that
it will either continue and finish the
Thanos storyline or it will be the MCU
version of Secret Invasion.

Of all the bloated epic crossovers Marvel
Comics has done in the last ten years,
Secret Invasion, at its core, I think,
makes for the best story idea. Imo, the
Avengers:EMH animated series executed the
story better than the comics. I think it
would be a cool story to do on through big
screen.

If the rumours are true, the Fox deal is looking like it may be back on. Galactus May be back in after that

Is AVENGERS 4 still slated for 2019? If so, being only a year after INFINITY WAR would suggest they are being filmed together, and likely would be a connected storyline, right?
