The long-awaiting first look at the fourth Avengers film Avengers: Endgame was released this morning and gave us a sense of where the film picks up after the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The surviving Avengers have regrouped at their base in upstate New York. Tony Stark is adrift in space with “no hope of rescue” It appears that Nebula is with him and while Stark is running out of oxygen (having already run out of food and water), it would seem that Nebula’s survival does not depend on the same basic needs a human does. Sending a message to Pepper Potts via what remains of his Iron Man suit, Stark prepares for death.
We see a glimpse of Thanos basking on his farm in the glory of having achieved his goal. Black Widow and Steve Rogers discuss the fight of their lives and their plan to save what’s left of the world or perhaps reverse the damage done by Thanos. We catch our first glimpse of Clint Barton (formerly Hawkeye) in his new persona (rumoured to be Ronin). The trailer ends with Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man arriving at the Avengers facility asking to be buzzed in.
While there isn’t much to be seen, it should serve as sufficient hype until the release of Captain Marvel (2019). Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) will be a significant part of Avengers: Endgame (2019) but she is noticeably absent from the teaser, likely due to Marvel not wanting to reveal too much of the story at this point.
We are rumoured to get a look at Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) soon, the events of which will take place after Avengers: Endgame so there is no telling how much of the story will be revealed there.
Avengers: Endgame is directed by Joe and Anthony Russe and arrives in theatres on April 26, 2019
