This recreation of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer using 90s cartoon is incredible
If you were a Marvel fan in the 90s, you didn’t have much joy on the movie front. Unlike today, where even Rocket Racoon is a movie star, all we had were a couple of shonky Spider-Man and Hulk TV movies from the 70s and 80s.
What we did have though, were cartoons. Lots of cartoons. The X-Men and Spider-Man animated series were beloved classics, and there were also (admittedly, less good) shows starring Iron Man, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and even a very short lived Avengers show.
This week, the frankly amazing trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped, making the wait for April 2018 seem an incredibly long one. But as a stop-gap, talented editor Fabrico Carvalho has recreated that trailer using clips from those 90s cartoons.
Check it out:
Everyone is there, including Dr Strange
And even Thanos
The only real notable absentees are the Guardians of the Galaxy, who didn't get their own cartoon show until 2015. Though it could have been cool if they had subbed in the Starjammers from the X-Men cartoon instead.
Here's the original trailer again, for reference.
