Could Thor: Ragnarok Be The Reason Why We Still Don’t Have Avengers: Infinity War’s Teaser?

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok.

It's been a while since Marvel finished principal photography on Avengers: Infinity War, and though fans have been expecting trailer to pop up along with Thor: Ragnarok's international release, it seems like there's still no sign of a teaser for the first of Marvel's two-part Avengers movie.

Now, with Thor: Ragnarok dropping in countries outside of the US, Marvel fans have a slight idea why the studio's been holding back on the Infinity War teaser.

To those who haven't seen the film, we recommend that you get yourself out of here. Those who've already seen Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) space buddy movie can stay.

Remember the third half of Taika Waititi's offbeat superhero comedy movie when Hela (Cate Blanchett) tore out Thor's right eye? Forced to wear an eye patch like the All-Father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), Thor takes on his new role as the King of Asgard during the very end of Ragnarok.

It's a pretty stark change in Thor's look, and it seems like the spoiler was cut out of the film's trailers. Marvel chose to cover up the Asgardian God of Thunder's missing eye in the film's promotional material.

Check it out down here:

That's not all. Promo art for Infinity War also has Thor keeping to his left side, avoiding his right eye.

Seeing how Marvel's been working around this spoiler, it seems like the studio might be waiting for Ragnarok to finish its theatrical run before releasing the teaser to Infinity War. Marvel probably didn't want to litter the teaser with altered scenes again just so that it could cover up the spoiler.

That, or the studio has a different marketing plan in mind.

Thor: Ragnarok hits cinemas in the US on November 3, 2017. Avengers: Infinity War on the other hand comes out on May 3, 2018, while its follow-up, Avengers 4, makes its big debut on May 4, 2018.
