‘Avengers: Infinity War’ premiere in Kigali: Prepare yourselves for some Jaw-dropping and wow effect

As Rwandan movie buffs are still buzzing with excitement over the superhero film Black Panther, the hype has turned around to Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest highly anticipated entry, “Avengers: Infinity War,”.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to unleash – you guessed it – Infinity War.

The Epic and highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest entry, “Avengers: Infinity War,” that had its world premiere in Los Angeles last night, will be premiered in Kigali like the rest of the world, on April 27th, in Century Cinemas.

Here’s what you should keep in mind for this Jaw-dropping and Epic blockbuster;

It’s all about Infinity Stones, and the villainous guy who wants them.

Since his introduction at the end of The Avengers, the bad guy A.K.A Thanos, has been the major lurking threat to almost every character in the MCU. The through line to his recurring appearances has been his quest to find six legendary Infinity Stones, which he plans to put into a shiny Infinity Gauntlet. The result is unlimited power and the opportunity to unleash – you guessed it – Infinity War. We’ve already seen five of the stones in previous films; it’s safe to assume that the final one will be revealed in this new film.

Spider-Man isn’t technically an Avenger … yet.

In the final moments of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker was offered a chance to join the Avengers by his mentor Tony Stark, who even built him a nifty new Iron Spider suit. He turned it down. Of course, that kind of refusal won’t keep him from web-slinging in Infinity War, but it might be worth remembering that he’s still something of an outsider. (For that matter, Ant-Man is also something of a free agent, in terms of his official Avengers status ... which could factor into the film as well.)

Bruce Banner runs the risk of being the Hulk forever.

One of the subplots in Thor: Ragnarok was the disturbance of the balance between the peaceful human Bruce Banner and his rage-filled alter ego, the Hulk. It appears that Banner’s time spent as the big green guy is getting longer all the time – and could even become permanent.

Iron Man and Captain America still aren’t getting along.

The two alpha males of the MCU have had a playfully adversarial relationship from their first scene together, but they really don’t like each other now. The drama started in Captain America: Civil War when the red, white and blue hero refused to be overseen by the UN and chose to protect his brainwashed pal Bucky instead of siding with Iron Man. When the smoke cleared, Cap and his allies – Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Falcon and Scarlet Witch – became fugitives and presumably went underground with the assistance of Black Panther. Black Widow was caught in the middle, but eventually sided with Cap (detailed in a tie-in comic book that’s apparently canon). Most importantly, Mr. Rogers also left a phone with Iron Man to use if his old friend ever needs him again. Spoiler: It will probably ring in Infinity War.

Thor’s hammer went boom.

One of the most iconic weapons of the MCU, Thor’s hammer Mjolnir, was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. Ye olde God of Thunder learned he was still powerful without the superweapon, of course, but Infinity War will apparently see the big guy looking for a replacement somewhere other than a hardware store.

Shuri brought Bucky back just in time.

Civil War ended with Captain America’s best bud Bucky being placed into a cryogenic state in the hope that his Manchurian Candidate-esque brainwashing could be reversed by the super-scientists of Wakanda one day. Then the post-credits tag for Black Panther revealed that Shuri had completed that process – so Cap’s sidekick is now back to normal and ready for action. Bucky will likely join the Black Panther crew, now an international force after T’Challa revealed the existence of Wakanda to the world at the end of his blockbuster movie. Which is great: The Avengers are going to need all the help they can get.

Avengers: Infinity War will be screened in Century Cinemas Kigali, which recently premiered superhero film Black Panther in 3D. Tickets will be booked under Rwf7000 only.
