I’m not sure how much more I can take — two Marvel trailers in one week?! Christmas has come early.
It all started with the second Captain Marvel trailer. Yep, girl power in full swing, hence my recent Captain Marvel Christmas Ornaments DIY.
But then, later last week, we received our first Avengers 4 trailer, a poster, AND a title!
Avengers 4 = Avengers: Endgame… end. game. Just let that sink in.
I know some are upset that we don’t know much more about the plot of Avengers 4 from this trailer than we did before we saw it, but c’mon guys, do you really want sneak peeks at the plot this early? After all, Avengers: Endgame isn’t coming to theaters until April 26, 2019. Let’s take it slow, okay?
What the trailer does show is that Infinity War left the Avengers broken and defeated. Tony, Steve, Bruce, Thor, Natasha, Clint… lowest of the low.
Steve sums it up best: “We lost friends. We lost family. We lost part of ourselves. This is the fight of our lives…”
And Cap, that tear? Really? You gotta hit us in the gut this early?
I’ll be honest, I’m a little miffed at Nebula. Nebula and Tony fought together on Titan and she can’t find a way to help Tony out a bit? C’mon girl… I know you got something up your metal sleeve.
Regarding Clint, aka Hawkeye, last we knew he took a plea deal after he broke the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War, just like Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. While Clint wasn’t in Avengers: Infinity War, we accepted it because he made the call to leave the action behind and remain with his family. Well, the snap happened and now we can only imagine what he’s gone through to get to this point. The End Game trailer shows Clint repping a new, darker look, including a sword instead of his familiar bow, and some are suggesting he is making the turn into his comic character’s darker side, Ronin.

We didn’t get much of Thor or Bruce during the first trailer, but what we did get, was a little Scott Lang humor. That’s right, Ant-Man somehow got out of the Quantum Realm! The question remains, did someone rescue him? Did he somehow manage to escape himself? Or did Scott find his way into the pre-warned “time vortex” and this is an alternate place in the time?

So many questions. One thing is for sure.
Avengers: Endgame is my most anticipated film of 2019! There — I said it.
And although my husband is not fully on board (yet!), I plan to prepare for Avengers: Endgame’s April 26, 2019 release with another Marvel Movie Marathon! Earlier this year, I shared a timeline to watch all Marvel movies leading up to Infinity War. And, well, it only feels right to do it again. Find my Countdown to Avengers: Endgame movie marathon schedule here.
Love reading your thoughts! I just sent out my own reactions to trailer in my weekly email, haha! I was excited to see Clint and Scott. I’m dubious about the time travel because 9 times out of 10 when a movie or book tries to use time travel it just doesn’t work for me. We’ll see how they handle it!
I am headed over to read your reactions now! I know what you mean about time travel, it can get messy, but if anyone can do it, it’s the MCU!
I like when trailers don’t give a lot away.
Totally agree! I love seeing a movie for the first time without knowing what to expect. Sometimes seeing even a character do one little thing gives it away while you’re watching the movie.
I’m still way behind on my Marvel movies, but I plan to watch a few of them with my son over his winter break. As a person who isn’t up to date, I say the trailer looks pretty interesting.
Sounds like an awesome winter break! I plan to do the same. 🙂
