UPDATE 1: Sigh. Apparently the trailer was going to drop Wednesday, but it was reportedly pushed back, due to President George H.W. Bush's funeral. Wednesday has been declared a National Day of Mourning in the U.S. So, those of you who guessed the trailer might be delayed for that reason, it looks like you were correct. Everyone else, don't give up. The Avengers 4 trailer will still show up very soon, with the latest update saying it will drop this Friday. We'll see. At least the Captain Marvel trailer showed up on time. And there's even more good Marvel stuff ahead this week.
ORIGINAL POST: Is it finally happening? After an incredibly long wait, and an even more incredible amount of speculation, we now have a date for the first Avengers 4 trailer: This Wednesday morning, December 5.
The trailer may drop on Good Morning America on ABC, which is part of the Disney/Marvel family. That's unconfirmed. It could also just be a straight online drop. They could also change the plan again and save the trailer for later, because messing with fans is Marvel's favorite thing to do. Whatever the case, get your butt up early Wednesday to see what's up.
Marvel did confirm that the second Captain Marvel trailer will be coming Monday (tomorrow) night. They also shared a new poster:
Nice. Brie Larson's first trailer and poster arrived in September.
And don't forget that Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be at the Game Awards this Thursday, Dec. 6, when fans should learn more about the Avengers game.
So it's possible Jeremy Renner was indeed teasing the upcoming Avengers 4 trailer with his recent social media post. Maybe fans will get more than just the trailer, we may get some kind of special promo. Also, don't forget, the trailer should finally reveal the official title -- another source of rampant speculation from the fandom.
Fans have been waiting for this trailer with bated breath, many expecting it to drop last week at the same time the Avengers: Infinity War trailer had dropped. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige had said we'd get the trailer toward the end of this year, after the first promotion for Captain Marvel. If this plays out as currently advertised, the Avengers 4 trailer will follow just two days after more Captain Marvel promotion.
Marvel fans had been getting a wee bit impatient because Disney recently shared first teasers for a few films coming out after Avengers 4 -- like The Lion King and Aladdin. All of that will be forgiven and forgotten if the Avengers 4 trailer does arrive this Wednesday morning. Expect to see any and all footage dissected to within an inch of its life.
Captain Marvel is scheduled for release in theaters on March 8, 2019. Avengers 4 is currently scheduled to open in the U.S. on May 3, 2019. Since they are coming out less than two months apart, it's fitting that they are being promoted together. It's like they're fraternal twins. We know Carol Danvers' story will have a huge impact on Avengers 4, and we can't wait till it all gets started. Excelsior!
