Graphic artist Boss Logic was all over the latest trailer for Avengers: Infinity War. He even mocked up a poster inspired by last year’s Logan. Just seeing this poster hit me in the gut and brought up all the knots of emotions I felt seeing the bond between Logan and Lara form only to have it ultimately dashed. Instead of seeing Lara grab Logan’s hand, we get Gamora holding onto Thanos. The powerful image was also one of our favorite moments from the trailer.
Talk about taking poster making to the next level. Here’s the original Logan poster for comparison.
This scene could also be Anthony and Joe Russo teasing the location of the Soul Stone. There is a significant theory that sees Gamora as the key to the Soul Stone. In order to obtain the Soul Stone one must sacrifice the life of a loved one. Thus Thanos will sacrifice his daughter Gamora in order to obtain the Soul Stone.
Based on the trailer footage released yesterday, it appears Thanos deeply cares for Gamora. And we saw him disgusted by the idea that Ronan drove her away in Guardians of the Galaxy.
