Thanos will have a whole new crew this time round.
At the recent D23 expo in Anaheim, Marvel revealed some juicy details and footage for next year's Avengers: Inifinity War.
While the super-powerful, supervillain Thanos(Josh Brolin) had already been confirmed as the main threat for Captain America, Iron man and co., we know know that he'll have a five-man legion of doom will be at his disposable to help do his destructive bidding.
Marvel revealed that the Black Order, a group of ruthless aliens that work for Thanos, will appear in the the film. With names like Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight , Ebony Maw and Black Dwarf, they don't exactly sound like the most friendly bunch and will be sure to pack more than a punch for our heroes.
There is no word as to who will be playing or voicing the characters but recent stills of Benedict Cumberbatch fighting as yet unnamed man in a CGI suit had people on these shores speculating that Ireland's own Tom Vaughn Lawlor(Love/Hate) will be starring as one of the villains. Given his slender body type, Ebony Maw seems like the most likely role hes taken on if it were true. But it looks likely:

At the same expo, Marvel also revealed footage of the film that has not yet been made available to the public. It allegedly shows Thanos throwing around planets in what sounds like a very subdued action scene.
