Enemies unite against a greater foe in the newest trailer from Marvel.

In the new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, the advanced, secretive nation of Wakanda that is led by Black Panther emerges from isolation to save a world it has otherwise always viewed as a threat.

We see old quarrels set aside as heroes unite to fight a greater evil. A battle-weary Captain America, a humbled Iron Man, a more human-looking Vision, and a Thor perplexed to be fighting alongside a talking to a teenage tree warrior and a talking raccoon are just a handful of the dozens of Marvel heroes who are joining forces against the cosmic tyrant known as Thanos.

In what seems to be the final battle for the galaxy, heroes assemble once again, some for the last time and new members join in the quest for survival.

“There was an idea …” The Trailer begins with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, but we’re looking at a distraught Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr., minus the Iron Man armor.) We are Bruce Banner plunging from the world of Thor: Ragnarok into the Sanctum Sanctorum, home of Doctor Strange.

We hear Tony Stark’s voice continue the sentence Fury began. “… to bring together a group of remarkable people …” With Hulk and Iron Man meeting Strange and Wong, the technological realm of the Marvel Universe is aligning with its mystical side.

We then see The Vision in a more human version, looking much more like actor Paul Bettany in real life, albeit with the glowing Mind Stone in his forehead radiating light as he embraces Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). His voice continues the sentence “… to see if we could become something more…”

“… so when they needed us we could fight the battles … “ says Chris Hemsworth’s Thor as the end of the sentence is spoken by Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow “… that they never could.”

We see Banner in Wakanda, admiring one of the weapons meant to keep “Mean Joe Green” in check, Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor.

We see Tom Holland as Peter Parker in the instant his spider-sense begins to tingle as outside the window of his school bus, Peter Parker sees the arrival of a strange craft, hovering over New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood.

Thai Marla he appraise of Thanos (Josh Brolon) as he scouts the galaxy for the Infinity Stones that will allow him to bend time, space, and reality itself.

The Eye of Agamotto, the green Time Stone, encased in the amulet Doctor Strange uses to warp chronology is one of these stones and Thanos is here to collect it.

Later dons the Iron Spider, The gold-laced suit that Tony Stark uses to tantalize Peter Parker at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming as he attempts to face off with Thanos.

The Tesseract, which was last seen being eyeballed by Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in Thor: Ragnarok, is a stone Thanos needs and now we see it here as Loki makes an offering of it to his old ally Thanos.

We already know Thanos does collect some of the gems he needs for his mystical Infinity Guantlet, which fuses the power of the six singularities. We see the blue stone of the Tesseract beside the purple Power Stone, which was the MacGuffin with the Orb from the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

The trailer also shows Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, who owes her abilities to the Mind Stone, much as The Vision owes his life to it. Making Thanos’ quest for the stone extra dangerous for her.

The trailer shows Thor opening a gateway into estate and subsequently allowing for the Guardiansof the Galaxy to return to Earth.

Meanwhile, we see a not so clean cut Callie face off against Proximal Midnight, whose spear is forged from the core of a distorted sun.

This act of fearlessness prompts Chadwick Boseman’s Wakandan leader to exclaim, “Evacuate the city, engage all defenses, and get this man a shield,” as we also see the Hulkbuster smashing the invading horde of Thanos.

Another treat comes in the latest iteration of Tony Stark’s armor as Iron-Man, which may very well be the last time we see him in the Marvel universe.

Sebastian Stans’ Bucky Barnes stands alongside the forces of Wakanda in what Kay he his final battle with his boyhood friend, Steve Rogers, Captain America.

The final scenes is one we’ve been waiting years to witness as our Marvel heroes are seen charging forth with Wakanda’s soldiers. War Machine appears to be back in action after Don Cheadle’s character suffered a spinal injury in Civil War. The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira will have not just a major role in Black Panther but also in this movie as Okoye, head of Wakanda’s all-female Dora Milaje secret service.
