After months of radio silence, Marvel has finally revealed the title of Avengers 4 and a chilling trailer for fans to pour over every detail of Avengers Endgame.
“Part of the journey is the end,” says Tony Stark as he seemingly accepts his fate drifting in space following the events of Avengers Infinity War. Leaving a message for Pepper Potts, Stark isn’t his usually quippy self, and things only get bleaker. Well, until the chucklesome post title scene bringing Scott Lang in to crack some wise.
Now, there might not be a huge amount of footage, any real hints about the plot, or any iconic action shots, but Marvel has played this just right. We might all have worked out that time travel will play a role in Avengers 4, sorry Endgame, but it is very refreshing that Disney isn’t giving us much. On the upside, the short trailer does definitively answer what happened to Hawkeye, he got a new outfit, haircut, and goes by the name of Ronin. I’m guessing that life on the farm with his family was much tougher going after the snap.
The title reveal of Avengers Endgame was largely speculated for months and denied multiple times by the brothers Russo. To be fair, it’s not like they would have confirmed it when asked, that’s not how this works. The release date is just a mere four and a half months away, so we can expect another trailer in the run-up to release. Hopefully, Marvel will be sparing with what footage it uses in the next trailer, I kind of hope that they keep it vague so that audiences have to see the movie to find out. You know, as they did in ye olden times.
Avengers Endgame is released in the UK on April 26, 2019.
