And here it finally is!
Marvel Studios just dropped the first trailer for its upcoming sequel, which also revealed the title for the first time: “Avengers: Endgame.”
The sneak peek isn’t loaded with action, but instead more dramatic moments after Thanos (Josh Brolin) wiped out half the Earth’s population with the snap of his fingers at the end of “Infinity War.”
It kicks off with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) — as well as a brief glimpse of Nebula (Karen Gillan) — aboard the Milano in deep space, as he records a message to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).
“Ms. Potts, if you find this recording, don’t feel bad about this. Part of the journey is the end,” he says, rather prophetically. “Being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds. Food and water ran out four days ago. Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning and that’ll be it. When I drift off, I will dream about you. It’s always you.”
Back on Earth, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America (Chris Evans) strategize their revenge. Cap tears up as we hear him say, via voiceover, “We lost, all of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We lost a part of ourselves. This is the fight of our lives.”
Widow assures him their plan, whatever it is, is “gonna work.” His response: “I know it is, because I don’t know what I’m gonna do if it doesn’t.” Worth noting: Cap’s beard is, tragically, gone.
There are also shots of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who was MIA for the last film, in his character’s Ronin gear from the comics. It’s clear he’s lost something in The Snappening too, likely his family.
After flashing the title, the trailer ends with Scott Lang, AKA Ant-Man (), showing up to Marvel HQ to give some much-needed comic relief … and hopefully help them all save the day. Looks like he somehow found his way out of the Quantum Realm after Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), Hank (Michael Douglas) and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) turned into dust.
Also popping up in the sneak peek: a surly Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and a shot confirming Shuri (Letitia Wright) is believed to be “MISSING.” We. Can’t. Take. This. Wait.
“Avengers: Endgame” hits theaters April 26, 2019.
