Back in May, 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 heroes against the supremely powerful Thanos, who, at the end of the film (here come spoilers!) used his Infinity Stones-powered gauntlet to wipe out half of life in the universe so that the other half would have a better shot at long-term survival.
What a pal!
Well, the saga continues next May when the fourth chapter, newly-titled Avengers: Endgame, reaches theaters and, based on the trailer above, it seems to be a different, less bombastic approach (likely to change as more trailers are released). Much of it is spent focused on Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark, who’s adrift in the spacecraft that had brought 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.
Could this be the end of Tony Stark? Not saying whether or not he’ll make it to the end of the film, but we’re pretty confident that he’s going to get out of that particular dilemma.
From there the focus shifts to Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Chris Evans’ Captain America, with cuts to Chris Hemsworth’s 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.”
And, naturally, after the title Avengers: Endgame comes up, we get a bit of comic relief from Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man.
Look for Avengers: Endgame on April 26, 2019.
