Dive in for some screen grabs asking some important questions about what we just watched... OK ..I have questions...
1. WHO is this?
Just because she's black and mostly naked, we won't just assume she's from Wakanda, home of the Black Panther, will we??!! Yea...we will.
2. WHAT is happening to Black Widow???
Reprogramming? Latent memories of something horrible our government did to her, assuring her the events of Winter Soldier are not the beginning and the end of the question "Who do you trust"? Just before this show, where she is clearly meant to look younger, she remarks "We have no place in the world". She seems pretty hopeless to me! I'd say everything she's known has revealed itself to be a lie and this is rocking her to the core.
3. WHO IS ANDY SERKIS PLAYING??!!
Could it be as simple as what is hanging around his neck being the final clue? Is Andy playing Ulysses Klaw, industrialist/land rapist who is after Wakanda's Vibranium AND the man responsible for Black Panther's father's death? Seems very likely!
4. WHO is the woman sort of dancing around behind Thor?
Slow up the vid and watch her arm movements as the Lightning seems to jump out of Thor's body. Is this Scarlet Witch in a more traditional, skimpy, iconic outfit?
5. WHAT is happening to the Hulk?!
Previously, we had thought all of Iron Man's armor was taken over by Ultron, including the Hulk Buster. In this trailer, we clearly see Tony is piloting the suit looking to take Hulk down. In this shot, you'll not the red glow in Hulk's eyes. Is he under the spell of Scarlet Witch?! This girl is going to wipe the floor with our heroes in this film!!
And now let's pair this with the first teaser...
And the clip that started it all...
And now we've got a lot to chew on!!
