Following the tragic events of one of last year's biggest films, Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos has wiped out over half of all life in the Universe. Iron Man is adrift in space and running out of time whilst Captain America, Thor and the rest of the Avengers are recovering and figuring out their next steps back on earth. The wounded superhero team must now band together to rescue Tony, find a way to defeat Thanos and retrieve the Infinity Gauntlet in one of the most anticipated blockbusters in recent memory. Expect action, fantasy and a lot of surprises in the latest, and biggest, film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
