At a moment when the DCEU should be in the spotlight for its ensemble movie, Justice League, Marvel’s rival studio has stolen the headlines with just a few still images.
In advance of next May’s Avengers: Infinity War, Vanity Fair organized a photo shoot featuring every member of the titular super team. Four collectible covers commemorate the shoot, featuring everyone from old staples like Thor’s Chris Hemsworth to new favorites like Ant-Man’s Evangeline Lilly.

Lilly was just one of the stars who went to Twitter to discuss how thrilled they are to be a part of the ongoing franchise. The actors involved aren’t the only ones heavily invested in the future of the Marvel Universe. The release of the pictures were met with a tidal wave of positive response.

With all of the excitement comes some nostalgia for a few Avengers’ last ride.

Accompanying the photoshoot is an in-depth article that examines the past, present, and future of arguably the world’s most profitable running franchise. Avengers: Infinity War is directed by the ever-capable Russo Brothers, Joe and Anthony.
The movie is set to release on May 4, 2018.
