In just one week, Avengers: Infinity War will finally be upon us, and fans everywhere will be suiting up to head out to Thursday night showing of Marvel Studios' biggest movie ever. That means the film's many, many stars are making the rounds on talk shows around the world, and talk shows mean clips.

Yesterday, Black Panther co-star Letitia Wright stopped by Good Morning America to talk about her experience with Infinity War, and debuted a brief moment featuring Shuri, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Vision (Paul Bettany) in Wakanda. Today, it was Anthony Mackie's turn to join the morning show and talk about playing Falcon for the fourth time. In between praising his stunt man, talking about the limited exposure he had to the script (at first he was sent just 25 pages), and revealing which cast member makes everyone laugh during takes the most (Ruffalo), Mackie also brought along a brief snippet of footage from the film.

The clip features a moment we've seen a second here and a second there of already through various trailers, and we've even heard a bit of dialogue from it before. It features three members of Captain America's (Chris Evans) fugitive squad of Avengers — Black Widow, Falcon, and Cap himself — facing off against two members of Thanos' Black Order: Proxima Midnight (Carrie Coon) and Corvus Glaive (unknown, but possibly Peter Dinklage). Glimpses of Widow and Midnight dueling have appeared in several trailers and TV spots, but we've never been able to see bigger chunks of the fight play out until now. Check out the clip beginning at about 3:25 in the video below:

When they first appear during the Marvel Comics event Infinity, the Black Order arrive on Earth as the vanguard for Thanos himself, bringing their armies and their particular talents to various spots on Earth. We don't know exactly where Corvus and Midnight arrive, but at some point they encounter these three Avengers in what looks like a train station, and things don't go well for them. The aliens (a husband and wife duo in the film) are quickly subdued Earth's Mightiest Heroes, to the point that Corvus is apparently immobilized.

Of course, it could all be a deception, as Corvus is billed in comic book form as the best general Earth has ever seen, and Proxima is a gifted fighter. We'll see how the rest of this clash plays out when the film finally hits theaters next week.

As for Corvus Glaive's voice...well, it's hard to tell from just two words, but it's certainly plausible that Dinklage is the man behind it.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters next week.
