Rumours back in May suggested that Marvel and Disney would be releasing a 22 film ‘Infinity Saga’ boxset featuring every film from Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame. Then at San Diego Comic-Con, visitors were treated to a trailer that featured all of the films in the series – also titled The Infinity Saga – and now Marvel have posted it online.
