We’re less than a month away from Avengers: Endgame. And Disney/Marvel is making sure you don’t forget it. First off, they posted a timer ticking down to Avengers: Endgame’s release date (to the very second). To help assuage fans until the movie drops, they’ve released a steady stream of content – posters and trailers – to feed their MCU fix.
Most recently, Marvel dropped a featurette where MCU stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson talk us through their characters’ reactions to the events in Avengers: Infinity War. As if Marvel fans weren’t already traumatized, the featurette kicks off with the sounds of our heroes screams as the Marvel Studios gets finger-snapped out of existence. Way to rub it in Marvel! Take a look for yourself.
Avengers: Endgame Featurette:
Marvel also released some new posters depicting Avengers: Infinity Wars’ survivors and fallen heroes. you know, just in case you weren’t already horribly scarred from watching T’Challa and Peter Parker turn to dust.
I’m most excited to see how Endgame folds Captain Marvel into the team. She’s so damn powerful that her presence feels like an MCU cheat code. I also want to see how she fits into the team. Captain Marvel, the movie, is at its best when we see flashes of Carol Danvers’ human side (a side we don’t see enough of). Also notable, the character is poised to headline the MCU, and based on her so-so film, Marvel has plenty of work left to do to flesh out the character.
Avengers: Endgame breakdown:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Kevin Feige produces “Avengers: Endgame,” and Anthony and Joe Russo are the directors. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers, and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
Avengers: Endgame arrives in theatres on April 26, 2019.
