In May 2018, Marvel released Avengers: Infinity War, which immediately proved itself to be one of the greatest superhero movies ever made — and created anticipation for the Avengers 4 trailer. It pit the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy and so many more of our favorite heroes against the supremely powerful Thanos, who, at the end of the film (here come spoilers!) used his Infinity Stone-powered gauntlet to wipe out half of all life in the universe so that the other half would have a better shot at long-term survival.
What a pal!
Well, the saga concludes on April 26 when Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters and, based on the trailer above which was released today, we’ll see the surviving heroes — among them Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and new addition Brie Larson as Captain Marvel — attempting to do “whatever it takes” to reverse what Thanos did. Lots of questions abound, ranging from whether or not humanity can be restored (we’re betting it can be) to which of the heroes featured in the above trailer may not survive and where things will go from here.
The film’s first teaser trailer, released in December, spent much of its time focused on Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark, who’s adrift in the spacecraft that took him to the planet Titan, where he and a number of his fellow heroes unsuccessfully attempted to take Thanos down in Infinity War. Now we’re told that he ran out of food and water four days earlier and that oxygen will run out the following morning. From there the focus shifts to Black Widow and Captain America, with cuts to Thor and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, as they discuss the aftermath of Thanos’ actions and the fact that they’re not giving up. Cap comments, “This is the fight of our lives.”
“This is going to work, Steve,” says Black Widow, suggesting that they’ve got some sort of plan in mind to reverse what Thanos did.
“I know it is,” he replies, “because I don’t know what I’m going to do if it doesn’t.”
Look for Avengers: Endgame on April 26, 2019.
