Marvel fans around the world are letting out a breath they held for 2 minutes and 26 seconds as the official trailer for Avengers: Endgame has finally been released.
Tony Stark starts the trailer with, what we’re all assuming, is his message to Pepper as he reflects on his time as Iron Man and all the good and bad that have come along with that. Fans are then taken through a series of flashbacks through the lives of our most loved heroes alongside glances at them currently, looking more defeated than we’ve ever seen them before.
The hope in their eyes is gone, missing posters are plastered around cities all around the world, and they’re gearing up -- with what heart they have left -- to try to make sense of what is and find hope for what could be.
At one moment, Tony says something we all hope to be true.
“I know I said no more surprise, but I was really hoping to pull off one last one.”
Watching the trailer feels like a labor of love, and we can’t imagine what we’ll feel when we sit in the theater for 3 hours to see the entire film. The MCU has been, in large, ruled by the Avengers for the last 10 years with looks at the heroes who fight with them (knowingly and unknowingly) to protect their worlds. A big change is coming, and it’s one we’re not prepared for. We love these heroes, they’ve carved out a big part of our hearts, and we can’t imagine what the world will look like if (we’re holding onto hope here…so we’re not saying when) we lose them.
We also hear the iconic ‘…but not us’ line which we’ve clung to from a previous teaser. We now understand that Steve is talking about how he tells everyone to move on from the losses, but they don’t, they won’t.
In an attempt to be a little lighthearted, thanks Marvel, we see new armor that the heroes will wear and we even get a look at Thor and Captain Marvel crossing paths, in which he laughs and says he likes her. We have to say, we’re looking forward to the banter between those two.
Whatever it takes, seems to be the catchphrase our heroes will live and die by in getting their lost friends and loved ones back. Whatever…it…takes.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26th.
