“Avengers: Infinity War” doesn’t just bring together almost all of the storylines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the past 10 years — it also shakes everything up, changing everything we know about the MCU in the process. The story concerns Thanos (Josh Brolin), a massively powerful super-bad guy whose arrival the MCU has been teasing since 2012’s “The Avengers.” Thanos has one big goal: Wipe out half the life in the universe, in order to allow the other half to thrive with abundant resources. It’s kind of a genocidal approach to garden pruning, and all the heroes of the MCU are fighting against it.
“Infinity War” begins right where “Thor: Ragnarok” leaves off, with Thanos (Josh Brolin) having murdered half of the Asgardians who survived the events of the earlier film. Into this mess, the Hulk attacks Thanos and for a hot minute it looks like he might even give the Mad Titan a real fight. Turns out, however, that Thanos was just having a little fun — after he and Hulk trade a few punches, Thanos absolutely kicks Hulk’s ass.
“Avengers: Infinity War” can check off yet another record: The second-highest second weekend of all time.
