Despite Avengers: Infinity War being released back in April of 2018, fans and casual moviegoers haven't stopped discussing and dissecting the events of The Russo Brothers' Oscar nominated blockbuster. No one expected Thanos to win the day, accruing the Infinity Stones and wiping out half the galaxy with the snap of his fingers. Fans are eager to see how the survivors has grappled with that event (named The Decimation), with the first few trailers for Avengers: Endgame revealing the dark and traumatic world that Thanos left behind.
While the teasers for Endgame are full of vague brief shots of the surviving heroes, one fan took the time to edit the footage together into one epic trailer. Check it out below, and get hyped for the bleak post-snap MCU.
Does anyone else have chills? With the two Endgame trailers combined, the vague outline of a plot may be discerned. What's more, we see how each of the characters who survived The Decimation are gearing up to battle the Mad Titan once again.
With Thanos succeeding in his quest to unite the Infinity Stones, he was shockingly able to cause a mass extinction event. Believing he was "saving" the galaxy from overpopulation, audiences were left to watch in horror as countless heroes turned to dust before their eyes. There are only a handful of heroes left after the snap, including the original Avengers, Rocket, Nebula, and War Machine.
Even with the Avengers: Endgame's trailers edited together, there is still very little known about the final blockbuster in the MCU's Phase Four. Thanos is nowhere to be seen, save for a brief glimpse at his armor and the big purple guy walking through a field of flowers. Brie Larson's Captain Marvel has also been noticeably missing from the first marketing material, with Marvel Studios likely waiting until her solo movie arrives, and audiences can meet Carol Danvers for the first time in live-action.
All seemed loss in the wake of The Decimation, as both the surviving character and audiences were left mouths agape, wondering what's next? The first footage of Endgame reveals how the world has grown darker since half the population faded into dust, Steve Rogers apparently in a support group for survivors. But while things seem helpless, the remaining character still seem determined to make a difference, and take back what they've lost from Josh Brolin's iconic villain.
It should be interesting to see if/how new Endgame footage is released to the public leading up to the blockbuster's release. Obviously Marvel will want to keep its cards close to the chest, but it also stands to reason that a full trailer will accompany such a hotly anticipated movie.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive in theaters on April 26th. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
