Summer Movie Preview 2018: From 'Infinity War' to 'BlacKkKlansman'

From superhero epics to a stranger-than-fiction KKK drama – your complete guide to the season's blockbusters and big-name movies

'Avengers: Infinity War' (Apr. 27)

If you want proof that it's Marvel's World and we just live in it at the movies, here it is. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have crammed nearly every Avenger into one jumbo MCU package – Spider-Man! Captain America! Black Panther! – that takes up two-and-a-half hours of screen time as they take on the big, purple bad guy Thanos (thank you, Josh Brolin, for giving this cosmic villain some humanity). You probably won't be able to keep track of who's doing what where, but the public is turning out (the $250 million opening weekend is an all-time box-office record) – just like we will next year when the currently unnamed second part of the saga hits theaters.
