As we draw ever closer to the arrival of Avengers: Infinity War, we've been unable to resist trawling through promo footage for hints, clues and Easter eggs.

For example, what the hell does Spider-Man's Iron Spider armour mean?

But before we dissect Infinity War's latest completely awesome image, we think it's probably fair just to enjoy it a little. Which is what we'll do, courtesy of Chris Evans.

The brand new photo (originally published by Total Film) shows key players from both Black Panther and the Avengers backed by a fierce Wakandan army. Okoye, Black Panther, Captain America, Black Widow and Bucky Barnes are all correct and present.

The gang might not all be there, but we're in no place to argue that that isn't one "dangerous" superhero super-group.

Speaking of Bucky, the photo also serves as our best look yet at his swish new bionic arm

MCU spoiler alert... ever since his old one was destroyed at the end of Captain America: Civil War, fans have been speculating about his new limb – he wasn't sporting it at the end of Black Panther.

But it looks like tech whizz Shuri has been hard at work on the metallic (possibly vibranium?) arm since, as the Winter Soldier now looks ready for battle in Infinity War.

Fortunately, US Marvel fans will no longer have to wait that extra week to see the super-group to end all super-groups, as the epic has had its release date pushed forward.

And it turns out they have Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr to thank for that, after a brief Twitter exchange between Robert and Marvel secured a unified worldwide release date.

Cheers, Tony.

Bucking the usual trend of an early UK release date, Avengers: Infinity War will now open worldwide on April 27 – which is only 50 days away, fact fans.
