Unsurprisingly, this holiday season of movies has been met with the first-ever trailer for the most anticipated summer blockbuster of 2018: Avengers: Infinity War. If Wednesday’s trailer is any indication, we’ll have to wait for a continued trickle of information to see what the heck will happen in the movie, but for now, at least we know that roughly 40 gazillion Marvel characters will be in this one. Also, none of them appears to be happy. Scarlett Witch and Vision get closest with a calm, moonlit embrace. Otherwise, every Marvel character in the trailer is either writhing in pain, staring intently, or charging into battle. The full cast of both Avengers films can be seen here, with the exception of Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye being conspicuously absent from the trailer. Black Widow has gone blonde, and to show her up, Captain America opts for a beard. Show-off. (We also hear a shout from Black Panther suggesting that someone “give him a shield,” which may or may not be about the Cap.)

We also see the full weight of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brought to bear, with rapid-fire confirmations of Doctor Strange (along with his buddy Wong), Thor, Loki, Spider-man (with an upgraded suit), Okoye, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, and the full Guardians of the Galaxy roster contending with the Infinity Stones-bearing evil of Thanos.
