Avengers: Infinity War releases in about a month and fans are going gaga over the upcoming summer release. There are several plot speculations, hilarious memes and numerous fans art that are doing the rounds. Amidst the infinity pool of artworks, there was one that stood out and caught the attention of Avengers: Infinity War directors Russo Brothers.
A few youngsters, believed to be from Malaysia, made a parody trailer imitating the events of the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. The promo was released in November last year. The parody trailer released close to the release of the second Avengers: Infinity War trailer.
The clip was shared by Twitter account Aiman Sany and has over 2.88 million views at the time of reporting. The video was shared with the caption: Who did it better? The video has doppelgangers of Thanos, Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man and more.
The video took no time to go viral and caught Russo Brothers' attention. The directors retweeted the video and offered them to direct Avengers 5.
Soon after Joe and Anthony Russo shared the video, fans began applauding the attempt of the boys to recreate the popular trailer. Avengers: Infinity War cast member Benedict Wong, who was also seen in the trailer, replied to Russo Brothers and the makers of the parody trailer to inform that they should drop his doppelganger and hire the actor instead.
Talking to IBTimes India, Aiman Sany said, "We're just normal high school seniors and classmates. We had an English class project where we had to make our own video of any topic. All 12 of us are big fans of Marvel, and at that time, the first trailer was a big thing and we thought, "Why don't we make a video about something we like?"
"It took us about 1 week to film because we were busy with classes, but at the end of the week, we all gathered to compile and edit the video, which took exactly 1 night. We used household objects that were readily available and the only thing we bought was the cereal," he explained.
"Originally we posted it on Twitter to show our friends what we had made. But suddenly, after a sea of retweets, it reached The Russo Brothers. We were so excited and at the same time anxious on what this would mean. But overall, we feel grateful that we managed to catch the attention of such great directors," Sany shared.
The team has definitely won hearts!
