The day has finally arrived, with Avengers: Endgame tickets going on sale today. But what would the occasion be without a brand new trailer to get the fans excited for the big finale to The Infinity Saga? Behold, a special look at the conflict to end all conflicts.
With the aftermath of Thanos’ Decimation taking its toll on the team, our surviving Avengers need to resort to desperate measures in order to defeat the Mad Titan. And those measures look like a return to space for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, complete with a reunion of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. Seriously, after all of the drama that Captain America: Civil War stirred up, it’s nice to know that a galaxy-wide cataclysm is all it took to make these boys shake hands and make up.
They’re going to need it too, as Thanos is looking as dangerous as ever in Avengers: Endgame. A testament to the quiet menace that has always been given to the character, we finally see some setup for his return to the fray, after supposedly retiring to a quiet corner of the universe following his mass destruction. A little trash talk, a variant of “you missed me so much you came back,” and it’s off to the races for what looks like the largest movie battle of 2019. Are we sure that massive weapon we heard about isn’t just Thanos’s words?
You don’t even need to see any of the fight that’s about to take place to know that something serious is about to rock the arena of Avengers: Endgame. And as if the return of Iron Man and Captain America as a fighting duo wasn’t enough, it looks like this trailer is possibly telling us that Doctor Strange will be back on the team as well. So if this trailer is anything to go by, it looks like the resurrection of those who fell in Avengers: Infinity War will take place before this huge battle royale. For as much as we know about Avengers: Endgame, we didn’t know it was going to absolutely try to break our hearts even more than its predecessor.
It’s been a hell of a ride for Marvel Studios, with 22 films over what will be 11 years this May, and all have lead to the door step of Avengers: Endgame. It truly is a movie event so singular it could never have had another title. Which means that a movie like this needs to be filled with spectacle and heart wrenching moments, and there’s plenty of that in this clip. In addition to Cap telling Tony that he absolutely trusts him in battle, we see emotional reunions between Tony and Pepper, as well as Rocket and Nebula taking the time to bond. And of course, for those of you still stinging from the disappearance of Spider-Man, let Tony’s sad gaze at a photo with him and Peter Parker remind you of that pain this morning.
