At long last, the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War is here. And for fans who didn’t see the footage Marvel unveiled over the summer at D23 and San Diego Comic Con, it’s our first glimpse of the biggest thing ever to happen in the MCU. And while seeing footage of all of our favorite heroes in action reveals a lot about the movie, it also raises a bunch of questions about how, exactly, things are going to go down when Thanos invades. These are questions beyond just “what is the plot going to be?” There’s a lot we already know about Infinity War, and plenty of loose threads from past MCU movies. The puzzle is just figuring out how Infinity War will bring all of those together.

Here are some of the biggest things Inverse is wondering about. (This post contains some spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok, in case you haven’t seen that film yet).

9. Where Are Ant-Man and the Wasp?

Infinity War is packed with just about every major character in the MCU, and earlier reports that there are 67 characters in the movie seem pretty reasonable, given everyone who made an appearance in the trailer. But, Ant-Man hould behould behould behould behould beand the Wasp, two of Marvel’s, uh, “smallest” heroes, are MIA. Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man should be in the movie, as the actor was front-and-center in a fundraising video filmed on set.

Loki Infinity War

8. Does Loki Break Bad?

The first Avengers movie focused on Loki’s attempted conquest of Earth with just one Infinity Stone, which seems so quaint now. But in the Infinity War trailer, a somewhat dirty-looking Loki is seen offering up that same Space Stone to somebody. We saw Loki do a double take when he ran by the stone in Odin’s vault at the end of Thor: Ragnarok. Maybe he swiped it.

Loki made a deal with Thanos for the stone back in the first movie. Perhaps he’s trying to give it back in order to save his own hide, or perhaps he’s trying to give it back for a more noble reason — to convince Thanos to spare the Asgardian refugees. Or, maybe Loki is going to become a bag guy again.

7. What’s the deal with Thor’s eye?

Thor’s eye is one of the biggest continuity mysteries surrounding Infinity War. In the footage shown at D23 and Comic Con, Thor had two eyes, which wasn’t surprising at the time. But, at the end of Ragnarok, Hela scratches one out. A Vanity Fair cover shoot earlier this week showed a two-eyed Thor rocking a badass scar, which seemed to suggest he’d get the eye back, but the Infinity War trailer has him with an eyepatch again. Perhaps the Guardians of the Galaxy have some eye-fixing juice on their ship.

6. How do The Hulk and Thor get separated?

Ragnarok ended with a ship we presume is Thanos’s looming above the Asgardian refugee spacecraft. Thor, Loki, Valkyrie, and the Hulk were all aboard. But, the D23 footage shows Thor hurling through space and hitting the Guardians of the Galaxy’s windshield alone. The new trailer shows Bruce Banner crashed down on Earth. What happened that separated the two, and how did the Hulk end up on Earth while Thor went flying through space?

5. If Team Cap is in Wakanda, what’s the deal with Black Panther?

Kind of a question for Black Panther more than it is for Infinity War, but T’Challa’s upcoming solo-movie is set after Captain America: Civil War, which had Team Cap flee to Wakanda to hide from the law. Infinity War shows that they’re all still chilling there, which begs the question: What were Steve and Natasha doing while Black Panther was defending his kingdom from threats. At least we’ll know the answer to this question before Infinity War, since Black Panther’s set for a February 16 release.

4. Where Is the Last Infinity Stone?

This question has plagued Marvel fans for several movies now, as we’ve seen five of the six Infinity Stones. But, now that Thanos is actually getting off his throne and doing something about it, it’s an even more pressing question. Our guess? The Soul Stone is in Wakanda — why else would Thanos launch an invasion?

3. Vision and Scarlett Witch Are Totally Gonna Bone, Right?

Vision and Scarlett Witch were a couple in the comics, so this really seems like an inevitability — especially now that Vision has a sexy new more-human form. Some fans think a casting call for Avengers 4 actually spoils that the two are going to have twins, like they do in the comics. Will the consummate things in Infinity War?

2. Is Vision Going to Die?

And, if Scarlett Witch and Vision do have sex, is it going to be before Vision dies? One of the Infinity Stones, the Mind Stone, is in his forehead. A scene from the trailer shows what looks like Proxima Midnight trying to rip it from him so Thanos can add it to his collection. Maybe somebody (Captain America?) will intervene, or maybe Vision can live without the stone. Or, maybe he’ll die.

1. Is Anybody Else Going to Die?

Vision might not die, but it sure seems like somebody is going to. Captain America and Iron Man are the two biggest contenders, especially when you consider that the actors’ contracts are up after Avengers 4. Killing off one of the original Avengers would certainly set the stakes, and we do see Thanos, equipped with two Infinity Stones, easy toss Iron Man aside.


These question should be answered when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.

Everyone’s favorite interdimensional animated duo, Morty Smith and Rick Sanchez, have been on hiatus since Rick and Morty Season 3 ended in October 2017. Even though Adult Swim ordered a whopping 70 more episodes of the show for the near future, the only thing on anybody’s mind is when Season 4 might finally grace us with more wacky adventures.

The Dragon Prince landed on Netflix last week, but the show is already a hit, generating loads of fan art and a passionate community eager to dive into this new fantasy world from some of the minds behind Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show’s first season lasts for just nine episodes, so there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already binged through it. If that’s the case, you’re probably already wondering when we can expect to get a release date for Dragon Prince Season 2.

The first official photo of Joaquin Phoenix in character as the Joker had him looking decidedly nonplussed, but the first video teaser may give you genuine chills. The new Joker camera test not only gives Phoenix some creepy clown makeup, but the Clown Prince of Crime even cracks a smile.

Earlier this week, Joker director Todd Phillips shared the first official photo of Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, the man that goes on to become Batman’s greatest nemesis, but on Friday afternoon, he shared a screen test from what looks like the same moment as the photo. Except here, the projection of a clown video flickers across Fleck’s face as he slowly cracks a smile, revealing a layer of smudged clown makeup across his face.

The very last week of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 challenges are here, and for Week 10, players have to solve a puzzle — or at least find a bunch of jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and perhaps the most fun challenge has players “search jigsaw puzzle pieces in basements.” This one’s just like previous challenges involving gnomes, rubber duckies, or even letters — there are many locations on the map that contain puzzle pieces, but players only need to get seven of them to complete the challenge. In this case, every puzzle piece will be located in some kind of basement, and it does seem like almost every basement on the map has one.

The very last week of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 challenges are here, and even though huge changes are bound to happen very soon, the typical “search between” challenge model is totally back for Week 10.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and one of the “HARD” challenges has players “search between a covered bridge, waterfall, and the 9th green.”
