Avengers: Endgame (opens in new tab) is a little over a month away, and Marvel has finally (finally!) given us a second look with a much longer Avengers 4 trailer (opens in new tab) that calls back to the MCU's history while teasing its potential future. Before you do anything else, sit back, find some headphones, and watch the entire two and half minute trailer above.
Even with the full trailer's extended length, the Russo brothers are doing very well to keep things under wraps this close to Avengers: Endgame's release. For starters, half of the trailer is old footage from previous Marvel films, including Iron Man (opens in new tab), Captain America: The First Avenger (opens in new tab), and Avengers: Infinity War (opens in new tab), distinguished from the new stuff by its monochromatic filter, with the odd splash of red for dramatic effect. But is there more to it than just savvy obfuscation?
Who is Hawkeye Ronin (opens in new tab) - and what does a simple costume change mean for Avengers: Endgame?
Luckily, the fresh footage that is there is oh so glorious. We get a proper look at Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, both before the snappening - where he's seen hanging out with his daughter (potential future Avenger Kate Bishop) - and after, as newly mohawked vigilante Ronin.
There's also a fresh look at the surviving Avengers in their new, potentially quantum realm hopping suits, which corroborates with the leaked images to surface last year (opens in new tab) (though there's no sight of Professor Hulk just yet). Heck, Captain Marvel (opens in new tab) herself even shows up at the end, impressing Thor with her equally god-like confidence to match his (which also aligns with the behind-closed-doors footage shareholders saw a few weeks ago (opens in new tab)).
Here's your first look at the new poster for Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame. See it in theaters April 26. pic.twitter.com/1ABjppabXTMarch 14, 2019
Other than that, the confirmation that Tony Stark and Nebula make it to Earth, and a brief shot of Rocket Racoon and Ant-Man (opens in new tab) fighting... something, the story details of Avengers: Endgame still remain up in the air, and this new trailer is doing very little to fill in the massive gaps.
Marvel has released a new poster (seen above) equally averse to spoiling a single thing, but that's probably for the best, as you'll want to go in blind for what is bound to be the movie event of the year. Now, time to watch that trailer on repeat for the next four weeks until show time.
Avengers: Endgame is out on April 25 in the UK and April 26 in the US. Check out what other upcoming movies (opens in new tab) are worth keeping an eye out for in 2019.
