As the magic of Black Panther continues to rule at the Box Office, the new trailer of Avengers: Infinity War gives a sneak peek into the great battle that would ensue in Wakanda in the film. The third film in the Avengers series, Avengers: Infinity War has preponed its release date from May 4th to April 27th. 

The film will pit the Marvel's superheroes against Thanos, whose master plan to accumulate all the Infinity Stones has been quietly playing out in a lot of Marvel Universe movies these past years. Armed with the powerful Infinity Gauntlet, the supervillain, played by Josh Brolin through motion capture, has been billed as one of the most terrifying villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

While the trailer gives a glimpse of MCU's superheroes including Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and the Black Widow, the biggest takeaway remains the split-second appearance of the Black Panther as he gears up for war.

The film, which released in February, has crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Industry insiders predict that after the film's stupendous success MCU might market Avengers: Infinity War highlighting the involvement of Black Panther- played by Chadwick Boseman. 

A similar strategy was adopted while promoting The Justice League after Wonder Woman did well at the Box Office. 

A key action sequence set in Wakanda has been frequently hinted at in all the trailers we’ve seen so far from the film.

According to actor Don Cheadle, who plays War Machine in the Marvel movies, the cast shot one action set-piece that features over 40 superheroes. Avengers: Infinity War stars Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Don Cheadle, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, and Tom Hiddleston.
