In the first official Avengers: Infinity War trailer, we see the villain Thanos collecting some of the coveted Infinity Stones. While the whereabouts of the Soul Stone remains unknown, the trailer hints that a popular theory might be true: The Orange Soul Stone has been in Wakanda this whole time.

Because it’s the only stone we haven’t seen yet, and because Black Panther is the only Marvel movie set to come out before Infinity War, this theory already made a lot of sense. Almost all of the MCU movies have featured at least one Infinity Stone in some fashion, with only a few notable exceptions. So it stands to reason that the only Stone we’ve never seen might be in a place we’ve never really gone: Wakanda. But the Infinity War trailer makes this seem more likely than ever.

Why would Thanos launch an assault on Wakanda if not to retrieve an Infinity Stone?

The Infinity War footage screened at D23 and San Diego Comic-Con over the summer featured Black Panther and the Winter Soldier uniting on the battlefield with an army to fight some invading alien force. We didn’t know for sure where it was back then, but now, it seems all but certain that the epic battle takes place just outside of what’s probably the capital city of Wakanda, Birnin Zana.

Evidence mounts when you look at how many Avengers show up for the fight. In perhaps the most epic moment of the trailer, we see the Winter Soldier, War Machine, Black Widow, Captain America, the Hulk, Okoye, and Black Panther. We even see the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor in action during one shot.

At the 1:18 mark, T’Challa says, “Evacuate the city, engage our defenses, and get this man a shield.” He’s no doubt referring to some impending assault on Birnin Zana, and the “man” is definitely Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, who commonly fights with a Vibranium shield but gave his up at the end of Captain America: Civil War.

Now all we have to do is wait for Black Panther.


Black Panther will be released February 16, 2018 with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters May 4, 2018.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

A mythical new weapon has come to the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of the Infinity Blade from the video game series of the same name, and it just made one place on the map the most trafficked location of all.

Following up on a Monday teaser, Epic Games introduced a sword called the Infinity Blade to Fortnite Season 7 and it’s so much more than another pickaxe like some players thought. The Fortnite version 7.01 patch notes outline everything to know about this new weapon, and it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before in the game. In fact, the closest thing to the Infinity Blade is the Infinity Gauntlet that transformed players into Thanos for the Infinity War crossover in April. (Both items are classified as “Mythic.”)

When Nintendo announced that every fighter in Smash Bros. history would be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans everywhere probably didn’t consider how long it would take to actually obtain all 70-plus fighters. Thankfully, it doesn’t take that long to begin smashing with your favorite mains. You will, however, need to put in some effort.

If, for some reason, you’re the type of person who skips special episodes or doesn’t like holiday episodes (hey, we won’t judge), you’re still going to want to tune in to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale on Friday, December 14. It may not be an official part of Season 1, but it could have a huge impact on the plot of Season 2.

When the first Captain Marvel trailer hit back in September, movie fans around the world wondered one thing: Why is Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson) punching an old lady? At the time, Inverse explained that Danvers was likely attacking a disguised Skrull (a shapeshifting alien race from the comics), and a new trailer confirms that we were right.
