Update #2: We now know that the Infinity War trailer will premiere on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. EST tomorrow morning.
Marvel has also shared a teaser poster for the film, which we’ve included below.
Update #1: Marvel has announced in a tweet that the Infinity War trailer is due out tomorrow, Nov. 29, sharing a brief teaser to match.
The Russos’ countdown doesn’t quite line up with a Wednesday Infinity War trailer release, but there’s no sense quibbling with this info from the horse’s mouth.
Original Story: Just yesterday, a mysterious social media post from Marvel Studios directors Anthony and Joe Russo threw MCU fans into a frenzy. After posting a number “3” in the midst of unrest over the lack of an Avengers: Infinity War trailer, fans speculated wildly as to whether the number represented a countdown or a date for the trailer’s release (or perhaps there is a third secret Russo brother). With another post from the Russos today, it has become clear that this is indeed a countdown.

Those Russo brothers certainly are cheeky bastards. Given their background with shows like Arrested Development and Community, fans shouldn’t be surprised that the duo are having some fun with this.
And MCU cast members such as Mark Ruffalo and Elizabeth Olsen have also been teasing something special to come soon.

Many on the internet (and some of us here at Paste) believed Ruffalo’s tweet, posted minutes before 3 p.m. EST, meant an imminent 3 o’clock trailer release, but this sadly did not come to pass. The photo that Olsen shared comes from a Vanity Fair; photoshoot and cover story that celebrated the 10 years of films from Marvel Studios.
The VF cover story summarized the success of the studio, led by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige (pictured above). In the story, Feige reiterates that Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel will be a culmination, acting as a “finale” for the current line of Marvel Studios films (possibly resulting in some major character deaths), and that about 20 films are planned after the fourth Avengers movie. We know that two of these films will be a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and a third Guardians of the Galaxy by writer-director James Gunn.
Avengers: Infinity War will finally arrive on May 4, 2018, but check back with Paste on Thursday, Nov. 30, for the much-anticipated trailer.
