Marvel Studios has released the third (and possibly) the final trailer for Avengers: Endgame on Thursday. The 2.5-minute trailer aims to encapsulate the entire history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by invoking a decade’s worth of nostalgia.
To avoid revealing spoilery information in the Avengers Endgame trailer, Marvel seems to have come up with an effective strategy - the trailer appears to contain just as much old footage as it does fresh shots from the upcoming film. This serves multiple purposes - not only do we, as fans, get to reminisce about our favourite heroes, but the secrets are maintained.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige had previously hinted that the idea is to not reveal anything beyond the film’s opening 30 minutes in the promotional material, which they’ve done so far.
This new Endgame trailer opens with Tony Stark, stranded in space following the events of Avengers: Infinity War, narrating a message to his fiance, Pepper Potts. This is interspersed with glimpses from the first Iron Man movie. “It seems like a 1000 years ago, I fought my way out of that cave, became Iron Man, realised I loved you. And I know we said no more surprises, but I was really hoping we could pull of one last one,” he says.
The same process is repeated with Captain America, but the voiceover that accompanies his scenes suggests that a popular fan theory might perhaps be true. “The world has changed, none of us can go back, all we can do is our best, and sometimes the best we can do is to start over,” we hear a voice say, indicating perhaps that the MCU is in for a reboot, following the introduction of alternate realities and dimensions.
But the biggest clue as to this theory’s veracity comes in the film’s money shot at the end. While Marvel, for obvious reasons couldn’t show glimpses of the final showdown with Thanos, they gave us the next best thing. Shots of Ant-Man shrinking are followed immediately by Captain America and Iron Man leading the heroes into the Quantum Realm, dressed in brand new suits.
Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans,Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and others. The film is slated for an April 26 release.
