The long-awaited trailer for Avengers 4 it was finally published, and with it our first look at what will surely be the most discussed film of 2019. Let's face it, Marvel could have achieved much lower results than they were here – so what did we learn from the trailer?
The closely guarded secret that was the Avengers 4 the title has been revealed and is a popular supposition. But it is not extracted from nothing. This title is not a reference to any comic – in particular, it is something that Doctor Strange tells Tony Stark a few moments before he disintegrates during infinite war: "We are in the final now."
Strange had previously told Stark that he had scanned the future and that there was only one way to beat Thanos, so whatever we see in End of the game he is sure to be what Strange referred to. We hope he had time to tell Tony how he went down in that possible future. And that someone can go to Tony to find out. Um, of which …
Tony is lost in space
The end of Avengers: Infinity War he left us all wondering how an extremely shocked Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) would return to Earth, and this trailer gives us the answer: it will not. Or at least, he believes he will not. There is a certain irony for Tony who spends his last days trapped in a metal box, but he can not finish there … can he? That recording that makes it has all the characteristics of being discovered a lot after his death.
But hey, whether it makes him alive or dead, one theory is that Captain Marvel gives him back a ride on Earth. And of course, they are unlikely to meet randomly, but again space has become much less populated.
Thanos is fine
So, Thanos. You've just reached your goal of killing half of the universe. What are you going to do next? Cultivation of substances, it turns out. It is not an unreasonable career choice for someone who has always been concerned about sustainability issues.
What interests us is how Thanos will be dragged into this fight. The last time we saw the Infinity Stones appeared impoverished, if not completely destroyed, will they be the key to reversing The Snap? Or will Thanos be mostly on the sidelines for this film? The trailer does not tell us anything concrete, but the fact that there is inside suggests that we will not be denied the revenge we hoped for.
If nothing else, we hope that Hulk will be able to give Thanos the success that has been previously saved.
The Avengers have a plan!
We do not know exactly what Steve (Chris Evans) and Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) are discussing when they hope it works – presumably, something that could reverse The Snap – but it's nice to know that they have something in mind. They would not be the Avengers without something to revenge, after all.
If you've seen the filtered photos leaked from Avengers: Endgame shoot, can you possibly guess what the plan might be, but if not, we have some questions … How did Scott Lang get out of the quantum realm? Since time moves differently there, could he have spent enough time in that world to truly master his strange abilities? And Captain America looks at a picture of Peggy Carter before leaving for a mission that symbolizes something more than lost love?
And, more importantly: do we really believe that Cap will take time to shave his beard in this situation?
Just some things to think about …
Say hello to Ronin
Jeremy Renner is back! when infinite war came out, the fans wanted to know: where is Hawkeye? Well, now we have an answer: it was in Japan and wearing a new costume, it shows off new weapons and in general it looks much nicer than you remember.
Comic book fans will immediately recognize him as Ronin's dress, an identical Hawkeye he once assumed in comics. A ronin is, of course, a samurai without a master (as anyone has seen The Wolverine We remember). Is this Hawkeye undercover or does it symbolize something more? Perhaps an attempt to stay under the SHIELD radar?
As for his use of a sword, well, let's just say while the Avengers were studying Thanos, maybe he was studying the blade. But in the comics, Hawkeye's mentor (and surrogate father) was a guy called the swordsman – is it just an Easter egg for the fans, or a nod to some Hawkeye backstory we have yet to see in the movies?
There's a lot to think about and just four months to think about it. We have only one unanswered question: how long until next time Avengers: Endgame trailer?
