After a long (and possibly delayed) wait, Marvel Studios has finally released the title and trailer for the upcoming Avengers movie, Avengers: Endgame, on the morning of Friday, December 7.
Given how Avengers: Infinity War ended, Avengers: Endgame is arguably the most highly anticipated move in the history of the MCU.
While the trailer was considerably light on plot, there were some hints and Easter Eggs crammed in there, so we did our best to break them all down below.
So, did that trailer tell us anything substantial? Well, not really.
We knew Tony Stark was stranded in space, we knew that the remaining heroes on Earth were defeated, and we knew that Thanos was JC at his celestial summer house. Sure, Scott Lang returning could be considered a “surprise” based on how Ant-Man and The Wasp ended, but everyone who is really an MCU fan knew it was only a matter of time before he popped back up.
Avengers: Endgame will star Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, and more. At the time of its release, it will be the 22nd film in the 11-year old Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Avengers: Endgame, the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War is due out in theaters on May 3, 2019. It is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who previously directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War
The film will be preceded by the Brie Larson-starring Captain Marvel and followed by the Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Spider-Man: Far From Home.
