Marvel has released the first official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame on their website, teasing a ‘grand conclusion’ to the series. The synopsis builds on the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War and teases a ‘final stand’.
It reads, “The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.”
This synopsis is different from the one ‘leaked’ months ago, which alluded to time travel and alternate dimensions. The older synopsis, published in an industry magazine, read, “A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
Marvel also released the first TV spot for the film, which doesn’t contain any new footage, but continues the strategy applied in the recent trailer, which contained both old and new footage. Marvel has said that only footage from the first 30 minutes of the film will be shown in marketing material, to protect secrets.
Marvel president Kevin Feige recently dubbed the first 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ‘The Infinity Saga’. It has been rumoured that future films will focus on new characters such as Black Panther and Captain Marvel, while older ones like Iron Man and Captain America will be retired.
Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and others. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film is set for an April 26 release.
