Do you think Avengers: Endgame needs another trailer? Marvel Studios Digital Marketing VP Dustin Sandoval is asking. The trailer we just got last week was billed as the final full trailer, which doesn't mean we won't get more footage in TV spots or other sneak peeks. But it's interesting that the digital marketing exec just put the trailer question to fans anyway. The responses are also pretty telling.
Some fans are worried more trailer footage would spoil Endgame surprises ahead. But others want another trailer showing Thanos and more footage of the team. As one fan tweeted:
No, I don't want to know any more than I currently know about it until I'm sitting in the theater watching it. The fact that we know so little about it is part of what makes it so exciting, and I would hate to see them blow that.
Another fan suggested a recap video as opposed to new footage, as a better way to prepare us for the 22nd Marvel Cinematic Universe movie:
No trailer. But a video recap montage of the journey so far would be pretty cool. There's 22 MCU movies and I only realize its that many when I actually look back at the posters.
To quote Thor: "I like this one." Yes to a recap video. It would be surprising if Marvel Studios wasn't already on top of some kind of official video bringing the stories together, as opposed to fan videos like that great Captain America tribute. One fan seemed to be battling himself/herself on whether to pick yes or no:
No, it will only give us more info that may risk spoiling the plot and outcome of the movie.
Yes, I JUST WANT MORE INFO! I AM CRAVING FOR IT! I NEED MORE! MORE!
This Thor meme remains my favorite response, and probably the one closest to my own reaction:
We absolutely don't need another Avengers: Endgame trailer or any other new footage in a TV spot, sneak peek, behind-the-scenes footage, toys, magazines, interviews, etc. But if you give any of that to me I am going to drink it down and want more. Don't enable me.
The first Avengers 4 trailer was released in early December 2018, revealing the title as Endgame. This same Dustin Sandoval had tweeted at the time that Marvel Studios tried not to spoil the title via the online marketing, but fans "spoiled" it anyway:
Even with all we know so far about Avengers: Endgame, there are still so many questions. It's probable the movie will still leave us with plenty of questions, since it's meant to change the game for the MCU, but not end the MCU. This universe is continuing onward with no plans for its own endgame.
Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters Friday, April 26, as one of the many movies opening on the big screen in 2019.
