New ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Clip Shows Black Order Vs. Avengers
On Thursday, actor Anthony Mackie stopped by “Good Morning America” to discuss the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. It’s expected to be one of the biggest superhero movies ever as it will feature the greatest collection of Avengers superheroes together in one film. Not only will it feature heroes, but some brand new villains who have yet to appear on the big screen. A clip shown on “GMA” during Mackie’s appearance gave viewers a look at some of those villains known as “The Black Order” in the Marvel comics.
The “Good Morning America” YouTube channel features a video of Mackie discussing the upcoming movie. Mackie, who plays the superhero Falcon in the “Avengers” movies, said he was only allowed to see about 25 pages of the movie script, but joked there was another 250 pages of it. He mentioned that he mainly got to take a look at the part of the script focusing on the movie’s final battle.
Mackie also spoke about the improvisation that took place while filming due to the fact so many different characters from the Marvel cinematic universe were assembled together for the first time. That provided a collection of acting talents which spanned all of the Marvel films that have been released so far.
For example, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and the Guardians of the Galaxy characters weren’t featured in “Captain American: Civil War,” while many of the other superheroes in “Infinity War” were part of that previous film. That makes for a lot of new interactions in the newest movie.
The folks at “GMA” also showed a very brief clip from the movie which shows Black Widow and Captain America battling members of the Black Order. Mackie’s Falcon eventually flies in to give an assist to help them take advantage of the numbers game. After the clip is finished, Mackie explained how he performed his “swift kick” move, thanks to the help of a skilled stuntman.
For those unfamiliar, the Black Order consists of three villains who act as Thanos’ henchmen. They are Ebony Maw, Cull Obsidian, and Proxima Midnight. Their roles are handled in the upcoming film by Terry Notary, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Carrie Coon. Prior to the new clip’s release, fans had seen one part of the trailer in which Doctor Strange is confronted by one of the Black Order.
The wait will be over for movie fans as “Avengers: Infinity War” is set for release in theaters on Friday, April 27th all around the United States.
