Avengers Disassembled: Taking apart the ‘Infinity War’ trailer shot-by-shot

If you're anything like me, you woke up this morning knowing that the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was going to drop and you probably planned your whole day around it. You probably didn't know that it was going to premiere on fucking Good Morning America, which is pretty damn great because you can be in bed before 11 since it isn't going to be on Jimmy Kimmel after all.

Anyways, I've spent most of my life in the thrall of Marvel's creations, so I figured I'd walk you through some of the cool bits of the trailer and tie together some of the new details to other previously released materials and some other spoilery goodness. So we'll take it shot by shot, and dive into cracking the puzzle that is Infinity War.

Warning: Spoilers Will Follow

Finally, our boy Thor reveals to us exactly what spaceship he was on at the start of the trailer: The Milano, the preferred spacecraft of an awkwardly-mustached Peter Quill and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Perhaps it was too much of a spoiler to reveal that the Guardians come across Thor in a field of debris (potentially coming from the Collector’s destroyed collection on Knowhere, the assault on which was leaked in the same way as the Proximia Midnight scenes were), as the Comic-Con trailer led with that. Yes, he does hit the windshield, and yes, it is very funny, even though it really shouldn’t be considering what all that debris came from — the ship housing all of his fellow Asgardians.
