The trailer for the much-hyped Marvel opus, The Russo Brothers’ “Avengers: Endgame”, has just dropped. And it’s about as thick as you’d hope in confirming fan theories.
I’ll cut my babble short right now and urge you to watch the trailer first (by clicking the play button above), and then come back to this post for a rundown of what’s shaking with the trailer.
All good? Great.
First: The Quantum Realm theory? Most probably true. I mean, there’s a whole lot of sexy-man Paul Rudd in the trailer.
And then there’s that scene that features his Scott Lang, dinging the doorbell to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s headquarters, even though he’s supposedly a casualty of The Snappening. So yep, Scott has wiggled his way out of the Realm, and that should confirm most if not all fan speculations about his role in re-assembling the Avengers once more.
Second: Hawkeye’s Ronin getup has me gasping for air. I’m glad it’s already getting its two seconds of fame this early into the film’s promotion.
Third, and most important: Thanos’ armor hoisted like a scarecrow. It’s an evocative image that portends to an even bigger threat than the Purple Meanie himself. And truthfully, I’m down with anything—Sentinel fiascos ahem, “X-Men: Apocalypse” notwithstanding—as long as sexy-man Paul Rudd doesn’t die.
Obviously, there’s even more to unpack from the trailer. And looking at how contained the trailer feels, it looks like it’s just one part of the film, and there’s plenty we’ve yet to see.
But I’ll leave all that to you. Let us know what you thought of the trailer in the comments.
“Avengers: Endgame” opens in theaters April 2019. We’re positive to get an exact release date very soon from Disney, but for now, let the theorists have their high tea and overanalyze this trailer frame-by-frame. I’m all for it.
