A new Avengers: Infinity War promo image has shows familiar faces, but Captain America doesn’t look as spiffy as he use to be.
Artist Steve Cas has released a new Avengers: Infinity War promo image via his Instagram account. It’s got our heroes looking stoic and ready for battle. However, Captain America looks like he needs a vacation. The aftermath of Captain America: Civil War (2016) seems to have taken a toll on our First Avenger. All the other members look pretty fresh-faced, especially Tony Stark (should I saw fresh-helmeted?) with his sleek new Iron Man suit, adorned with multiple arc reactors.
The image also includes a teenage Groot who still looks like he has a bit of angst. I wonder if he ever obeyed Star-Lord and cleaned up his messy room? A little to the back and left of our favorite living tree is Spider-Man, now wearing his Iron Spider armor—which was first introduced at the end of this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).
And flanking Steve Rogers are the rest of team Guardians of the Galaxy—Star-Lord and Rocket. I wonder if that’s Rocket only pose? Oh wait, he’s also got that crotch-grab. Peter Quill seems to be sporting a much more serious face which means things are going to be dire in this upcoming film. Hey, they should be. Reality is at stake here.
Avengers: Infinity War—Synopsis
