'Avengers: Infinity War' Reveals Thanos' Villainous 'Black Order' and Infinity Gauntlet
Marvel/Disney
All throughout Disney's D23 expo, which has been quite busy showing new trailers and behind the scenes footage, there were mysterious statues covered with tarps over by Marvel's booth, which many believed were the rumored first look at Thanos' henchmen, the Black Order, from Avengers: Infinity War.

And as it turns out, that's exactly what they were, which everybody saw when Disney and Marvel unveiled the new bad guys who'll be fighting against the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thanos' name. From left to right, meet Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, that's Thanos there in the middle, then Ebony Maw, and Black Dwarf as the big guy at the end:





We've seen traces of these four previously, since during Infinity War's filming, there have been lots of scenes where it's likely that the Black Order will be inserted through CGI or motion capture, such as whoever is attacking Doctor Strange in a motion capture suit in these set photos. And in fact, that weapon held by Corvus Glaive looks awfully familiar, because there are set photos of different dudes in motion cap suits fighting with that exact staff/spear.
 
We also get a look at the Infinity Gauntlet, which now has all of the Infinity Stones inserted into it. Notably, the orange Soul Stone is right there on the pinky finger knuckle, and that's the only stone which hasn't yet appeared in an MCU film:




In Marvel comics, the Black Order is made up of Thanos' most dangerous minions, which is why he often refers to them as his children. Although much like his adopted daughters Gamora and Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy, that's more of a title and Thanos probably doesn't much act like a good dad.

With six Infinity Stones hidden out there (possibly five, if Thanos already has the Soul Stone), these four are going to to be quite busy retrieving them all - it's a safe bet that whoever is attacking Doctor Strange in those aforementioned set photos is probably after the green Time Stone that he currently possesses.

We'll hopefully be able to show you some new Infinity War footage soon, as quite a bit was revealed at D23 but is currently unavailable to the public. The most notable scene appears to be a moment where the Guardians of the Galaxy, upon coming across a destroyed alien planet, suddenly see a body crash into their spaceship window - they're grossed out, but they pull him aboard. It's Thor. He gets better, then he asks, "Who the hell are you guys?"

That scene is likely to show up in the eventual trailer, so be on the lookout for it. Avenger: Infinity War comes out May 4, 2018.
