Surprise, surprise, it’s another Avengers: Endgame trailer from Marvel. Though don’t get too excited as there might not be as many major revelations in this new footage. However, we’ve contextualize what we’ve seen from the new trailer to the previous one. Here it is;
The trailer starts off gloomy in the Avengers HQ, with Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) arguing on whether or whether not their plan is a good idea, he begins with “If we do this, we’d be going in shorthanded,” – as plans are underway to take the fight to Thanos.“Yeah, you mean ’cause he killed all our friends?” Rhodey (Don Cheadle) replies to Bruce.
Its obvious here that there’s a lot of sadness we’re about to see, so brace yourselves.
As the shot cuts to Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) we see her mope under the rain, implying that there’s some serious sad fest everyone is going through. “We owe this to everyone not in this room to try,” her voice is heard over the shot, as seeming to be a part of the same conversation as Bruce and Rhodey are having.
It also looks as though this shot has taken place after Natasha brought Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) back into the fold while he’s swanning around Tokyo as Ronin, as she still has her two-tone red-and-blonde look.
Oddly enough, her hair actually plays a big part in the trailers, it leave us with a time as to when each event takes place. If watched closely, Natasha’s hair transitions to from her blonde Infinity War look into the black widow hair. Which leaves us at least a vague idea of when the Avengers start showing back up at HQ
Meanwhile, Captain America (Chris Evans) is seen moping and sadly gazing into a bathroom mirror. This could possibly be during the aftermath of what is truly the greatest loss of all of Avengers: Infinity War.
Cut to the only few remaining Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula and Rocket reunite and are both moping. – it’s a really hard time for these guys, and it’s really hitting us hard too.
And the moping doesn’t end there! Tony Stark narrates “It’s not about how much we lost,” adding “It’s about how much we have left,” at the same time we see Tony embracing Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). – This seems to take place after he’s been away on the galaxy, his face is pale and their hugs seems more of a welcome home embrace.
Quick cut to a new scenery of a daylight scene, Tony is seen with a fresh new set of Iron Man armor, as he flies above the skies of Manhattan. Hot Toys’ newly-revealed figure of this armor shows its designation as the Mk. 85—a way more advanced look than the old Mk. 50, which was worn in Infinity War. The new armor is inspired by the colour scheme of Tony’s earliest suits in the comics, most notably the Model 2 and Model 3 iterations of Tony’s classic Silver Age looks.
“We’re the Avengers, we gotta finish this” Tony continues, as Nat and Clint look towards one another and exchanges a smile- a glimpse of hope we need from all the moping! Also, Hawkeye is looking a little different here, he is seen with a new tattoo on his sleeves of a skeleton samurai, which could be from during his time as Ronin.
Another smile! (okay, may be its more of a smirk), the trailer shares an extended shot of the last trailer’s standout moment between Captain Marvel and Thor, as the latter summons Stormbreaker in an attempt to jostle the former.
And, finally, we get to see a footage of the avengers rising up and ready to save the world- well what’s left of them at least. Carol, Bruce or Thor are not in this shot, maybe cause the team is actually looking towards them.
Tony and Steve patch up their Civil War beef for good—“Do you trust me” Toney asks, “I do” Steve replies as he places his trust in Tony once again. It’s an indication that they’re about to risk it all and are willing to put aside their personal feelings in order to save the world. – I must say, this is a pretty big moment in my books!
The team is seen taking flight on the Benatar once again. But take note of the team here—Carol, Rocket, Rhodey, Nat, Steve, and Thor, and their costumes. Natasha is back in her blonde Infinity War look, while Steve is in his Winter Soldier stealth suit. Going back to the initial Endgame trailer, we see Nat comforting Steve,“This is gonna work, Steve” and Steve looking concern, looks to Nat and says “I know it is,” where he paused and added “Cause, I don’t know what I’m going to do if it doesn’t”. Which means that this conversation might have taken place during this flight.
This leaves us with many more intriguing questions about what the team is up to, and why is Tony left behind?
Back on the earth, it’s Tony’s turn to mope. Here he is seen feeling gloomy over a picture of the late Peter Parker (Tom Holland). Over it, the voice of Thanos (Josh Brolin) is finally heard: “You could not live with your own failure. And where did that bring you? Back to me.”
It cuts back to the Two ring ships dock at the Sanctuary II, of Nebula and Rhodey looking sombre and presumably gazing up on Thanos’ gigantic vessel…
Thor and Rocket look horrified and almost hopeless at something. The designs in the background looks similar to one of the ring ships or the Sanctuary II’s interior itself, so presumably the team leads an attack aboard Thanos’ ship.
And a battered Steve attempts to get up and continue his fight as Thanos teleports into the battlefield, clad in his battle armor.
Cut to Tony, on the same battlefield. Note this battlefield played a HUGE part in the recent trailer for Endgame, and between that previous trailer and this shot we’ve now seen Ant-Man, Nebula, Cap, Iron Man, and Thor scrapping on it. Unfortunately, it’s still pretty unclear as to where this could be taking place.
The trailer ends with a spine-tingling hero shot from the same ruined battlefield—However, we only see the three original Avengers, that started it all years ago. The few left are seen taking slow, determined walk toward Thanos.
Avengers: Endgame is set to be out in theaters April 26.
