????????????????????? (More spoilers about "Avengers: Infinity War," if the picture wasn't warning enough)

Somebody somewhere in the depths of the internet has noticed this, but damned if I'm going to look it up.  I finally realized what's wrong with this picture, aside from the fact I never saw this shot in the movie (Black Panther led his forces into battle; he didn't play second fiddle to Steve Rogers f/k/a Captain America at any point).

The Hulk only appears in the first few minutes of the film.  Once Heimdall blasts the Hulk to earth on the Bifrost (his last act before Thanos kills him), Banner lands in the New York sanctum of Dr. Strange, slowly reverting to Banner and never changing into the Hulk again for the entire movie (it's a running....gag?  No.  Plot point?  Barely.  Anyway, it's a bit odd, but makes sense as Hulk would make mincemeat of Thanos' "children," the heavies he sends to earth to fetch the Infinity Stones there.  Regular non-superpowered-as-Hulk-or-Thor superheroes dispatch them all, right down to Scarlett Johansson.  And if he hadn't already acquired the Power Stone (Mighty Morphin Power Stone Rangers!  I know; I can't get that outta my head.  There is something really dumb about all this.), Hulk probably would have ended Thanos before the movie started.

Still:  what is this picture from, and why is it on the intertubes?  It's meant to depict the defense of Wakanda (where Vision is being treated to have his stone removed. No, seriously!), but it doesn't happen this way.

So why did Marvel release it?

Like I said, in the grand scheme of things, who cares?  But this is the internet!  Everything is an outrage to somebody!


No, wait:  no collusion, no collusion.  You're the collusion!

I really gotta get off the intertoobs more.....
