There are a lot of Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War, as has been well-documented for the past year or so. Honestly, we might have hit peak Avengers with this movie, because depending on the day (and the behind-the-scenes picture from set), there’s anywhere from like three to 50 Avengers in the movie. There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing…but we are sure getting close to our legal Avengers limit.
So when you hear that *another* character has been 100% confirmed for the movie, you might want to groan. But do not, because this latest Avengers addition is a DAMN IMPORTANT ONE. The latest (and maybe final?) trailer for the movie reveals that the Avengers & Co. are headed to Wakanda to meet up with our favorite Disney Princess, Shuri.
Yes, the latest Avengers trailer features our girl genius — who is, in case you’ve forgotten, the smartest person in the world, so yes, she’s smarter than both Tony Stark and Bruce Banner combined — whipping up some high tech stuff for our heroes. Shuri, you’re doing amazing, girl.
There’s a real, big hope that girl genius Shuri will meet up with boy genius Peter Parker, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening in this movie. In order to take down Thanos — the big, purple dude who is trying to collect all the Infinity Stones…it’s a long story and there are 18 movies about it so far — our heroes are going to have to divide and conquer. It appears as if Captain America and friends are headed to Wakanda, while Iron Man, Dr. Strange, the Guardians, and Peter are headed to OUTER SPACE.
Remember where Peter was worried about going to Germany for the weekend? Yeah, Aunt Mae is going to have a heart attack when she hears Peter went to SPACE.
