Me: The new Infinity War Trailer just dropped.
Editor: I thought that was yesterday.
Me: No, that was the trailer for people excited as they watched the trailer.
Editor: It’s shocking none of these people have kissed a girl before.
Steady your nerdrections. Call your favorite DC Comics geek and prepare to make fun his mother. Marvel finally dropped the first Avengers: Infinity War Trailer. Ten years of movies existing just to set up other movies. Ten years of the DCU ripping off Marvel and still not getting it quite right. It’s finally happening. Thanos is finally getting the Infinity Gauntlet and declaring war on Earth.
The movie stars Chris Pratt (see Chris Pratt: ‘Hollywood is Out of Touch with Blue Collar Americans…’ and Chris Pratt: ‘I Only Eat What I Kill.’ Vegans Freak…) and about 217 other people.

Let’s be honest. This movie has already had my $20 ever since the first Avengers. If I sound like I’m too mocking of comic geeks, it’s because we can smell our own. Though some of us need to switch to a new deodorant. Or, any deodorant.
It’s a teaser. An over hyped-teaser that doesn’t show much, but gives just enough for fanboys to download in their trousers. And even as an overhyped trailer, it was still more entertaining than Justice League. Don’t @ me. Just sit there puffing away on your inhaler while your mom makes you pizza rolls. You know I’m right.
Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet drops in May 2018.
