Welp, that was fast. On the heels of the second trailer for Captain Marvel early in the morning of Friday Disney threw the first trailer named after its current name Avengers: Endgame the successor of this spring, the Thanos Kills Heartstopper from the Universe Avengers: Infinity War . And to be honest, it's not the trailer everyone expected.
For one thing, it's a bit more weighty than most early teasers, which concentrate on dramatic shots and offer little action. While this is not exactly what the remaining Avengers intend to do to repair the intergalactic genocide of Thanos, it does show that they have a plan. (:: Coughing :: Getting Wong to Beat Back Time? :: Coughing: 🙂 And, in the words of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), it'll be the "fight of our lives" gonna work "because I do not know what I will do if it does not work." Desolate, Steve, bleak.
What else? Well, for one thing, Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) is out and about in space, sending messages to Pepper Potts saying he has only one more day of oxygen left. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is sad. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is back (yay?). And Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Bruce Banner / Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are in tears all the time. Fortunately, Scott Lang / Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), whose post-Thanos fate showed up in the post-credits scene of this year's Ant-Man and the Wasp finally shows up in his van To facilitate the comedy, move to Avengers Headquarters and ask, "Can you invite me?"
Not shown, perhaps unsurprisingly, is Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). She was the one Nick Fury has played through at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and will probably be the hero rescuing the day in Endgame but here she is nowhere to be found. It makes sense, considering that their original movie has not been released yet, but look for it in future trailers.
The new teaser also reveals the release date of the movie in April. The clip itself only says "April," but Marvel posted a poster on Twitter shortly after the trailer had been dropped. He announced that it would be April 26, proving that it stuck to the somewhat earlier release window of Infinity War . If only we could snap our fingers and spring for spring.
