We’ve been waiting for what feels like forever.
Despite the fact that Avengers: Infinity War released less than a year ago, every Marvel fan has been waiting with bated breath for any news they could get of the next film. Rumors swirled about the name of this climactic sequel. Now, the trailer has come and the subtitle for the film has been revealed.
Clearly there is a lot to unpack here, from Tony Stark’s ominous speech to start the trailer, to the final giddy moments with Ant-Man at the front door. However, if there’s one thing that the Russo brothers want you to take away from this trailer, it’s that they’re serious about this being an end of sorts. Of course, the MCU will live on after Avengers: Endgame, but it won’t exist in the way it has for the past ten years. That’s exciting and scary in equal measure.
I will say that this trailer feels a bit underwhelming, though I think that’s a calculated move on the part of Disney’s marketing team. While the Infinity War trailer showed off big, splashy CGI battles and explosive action, this trailer feels more like the calm before the storm. I’m sure with future trailers (Disney usually releases one or two more before the premiere date) we will see more of the climactic, emotional story elements we are waiting for.
