All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Trailer for some thing called MARVEL STUDIOS' AVENGERS INFINITY WAR? I have no idea what this is about but it looks like it could be interesting.

it is going to be a slaughter. 3 or 4 major character deaths....maybe more

I'm guessing this one could be the longest MCU movie yet, too, they are going to be packing A LOT into one movie.

A bit of Infinity War news that some of you might perhaps find interesting: it won't screen for critics until a mere 3 days before the release date. You will recognize this move as one that studios usually make with movies they know are bad in order to prevent negative word-of-mouth from getting out before opening weekend. In this case, Marvel claims it's been done to "protect the movie's secrets."

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Disney have something of a mixed relationship with movie critics/reporters at the moment.

Athough I expect that, with a movie like this, Disney don't really need support from them for it to succeed.

I think this is a case of a desire for as many people as possible to see it "fresh", without knowing the big surprise/twist that the directors say define the movie. the title of the next Avengers movie isn't being released yet because the title itself is a spoiler for what happens in Infinity War. movie reviewers are hardly a bunch of people that are considered to have either a high degree of ethics or intelligence, so I think the studio is perfectly justified in not trusting them to keep the lid on a big "secret" about a part of the movie which they think will lessen people's enjoyment, and therefore the impact, of the movie. you watch, there will be reviews that spoil "it". but with the reviews released only a few days before opening weekend there will be less people who are unfortunate enough to be exposed.

if they want to protect the film's secrets, why put it out for review at all? is it really that much better to have the secrets spoiled 3 days before release instead of a week before release?

On the other hand, it was just announced that Solo will premiere at Cannes. And the last Marvel movie, Black Panther, premiered about three WEEKS before its release date. But whatever the reason not to pre-screen Infinity War, you're right that they don't need critical word-of-mouth to make money on this one: it's already sold more tickets than the last seven Marvel movies combined.

I am leaning toward the theory that Marvel is going for such a high level of secrecy because of the level of character carnage in Infinity War, they are going to be killing off some fan favorites
