With the final trailers dropping for Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it’s only natural that attention would switch to arguably the most anticipated superhero film ever — Avengers: Infinity War. Even with the film now finished and in post, we haven’t seen much of anything aside from a few BTS photos and videos.
One would assume that a first trailer would be attached to Thor: Ragnarok or at the very latest, Star Wars. Black Panther, due on February 16, will obviously have a trailer attached, but we would hope that it’s at least trailer number two, giving us even more.
So when is this dang thing coming out? Fandango’s Erik Davis dropped a clue last night on Twitter after speaking with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. It’s very much in the Feige way of stating things which is to give us a some information, but not too much. In other words, a tease. Here’s what he had to say:
I asked Kevin Feige when the #InfinityWar trailer is going to hit, and he confirmed it will arrive “before the end of the year.” 😜👍

7 Big Potential Changes For The Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers 4’
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.
Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will probably never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.
