Stark asks her “Tell me his name again? Avengers: Infinity War trailer shows the true extent of Thanos menace.

“The end is near; when I’m done, half of humanity will still exist. Perfectly balanced!”- Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War trailer tells his plans for the human race. Why only half? Why not the whole Humanity? He’s from a planet called TITAN. Many years prior to the film his planet was experiencing a cataclysmic shift. They were running out of resources, and they were overpopulated. Thanos made a recommendation that they exterminate half the population randomly in order to save the rest of the population. Of course, the Titans rejected his notion, branded him a madman, exiled him, and the planet ended up dying.

9. Gamora and Nebula
We have seen Gamora and Nebula always fighting and throwing punches at each other, both verbally and physically in Guardians of the Galaxy movies. We also saw that kind of things in reality, where there two competitor sisters in a home, LoL!! Yeah, you guessed it right! Gamora and Nebula are adopted daughters of Thanos. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, we came to know that Thanos used to collect powerful warriors from the world’s he conquered.
These two sisters also belong to his collection of warriors along with other adapted warrior siblings. Thanos though believed in the perfect balance in everything. He used to conduct a brutal competition to all the warriors and the last survivors become his ”children”. Nebula who hated all other adopted siblings, she grew a genuine bond with Gamora to a point they started to consider each other as true sisters.
But Thanos had plans for them; he regularly had Nebula spar with Gamora to test their strengths. Gamora winning every match, Thanos would upgrade Nebula by cutting the limbs off and replacing the parts with cybernetic implants to make her Gamora’s equal. Nebula grew to resent Gamora for never letting her win causing Thanos to torture her. In Guardians of Galaxy Vol.2, After the heroic battle between the sisters. It leads to an emotional scene where Nebula breaks down.
Everyone thought she was the bad guy the whole time. But we realize that actually, she’s the one who (in a lot of ways) is the victim in the relationship. With Nebula and Gamora hatred of Thanos is more than anyone in the universe, will they play a key role in bringing down his terrifying father?
Black Panther being in the last movie that MCU released before the Avengers Infinity war, shows that Wakanda people and its king are going to play a vital role in the fight against Thanos. Wakanda being hidden in its advanced society and technologies for centuries, King T’Challa (Black Panther) decides to aid any country that needs their help. Shuri (King T’Challa sister) being the brain behind all the Wakanda’ s scientific advancements, as we see her along with Bruce Banner in Avengers Infinity War Trailer. She may have her first encounters with the mind of Banner is going to be fruitful and delightful.
Wakanda is being an only society with advanced techs and well trained fierce warriors. Avengers have chosen Wakanda as the main battlefield against Thanos and his outriders. The trailer has shown Thanos’s outriders swarming towards Wakanda hints us that Black Panther would have offered to hide Vision’s Mind Stone in his technologically advanced African Nation.

The day he dreamed about is here, Thanos is here. As always Tony doesn’t get bullied, he bullies other people. Of course, Tony will come up with cool toys and make Thanos feels why did he mess with Avengers in the first place.
