A new tribute and pseudo-trailer for Avengers: Infinity War in the style of last year’s Logan is making the rounds to coincide with film’s digital release.
The video centers on highlights of Thanos from the Avengers film and features the song “Hurt” by Johnny Cash, just like one of the trailers for the reputedly final Wolverine solo film starring Hugh Jackman.
This is the second time such a trailer surfaced online; the first one was posted just prior to the release of Infinity War.
Something of a trend in its own right, this phenomenon of parodying promotional material for Logan by substituting Thanos was started by the Russo Brothers. The Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War directing duo created and shared a mock poster on Facebook showing Thanos’s giant purple hand holding the tiny hand of young Gamora. In big, white font, the faux poster reads, “THANOS,” simulating the main poster for Logan last year.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin. The film arrives Aug. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray.
