Avengers: Endgame is nearly upon us. A whole year after the traumatic events of Infinity War, the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally releases in theaters this Friday, April 26. Ahead of that, another new TV spot has been released, as has our Endgame review.
The teaser trailer is very short and doesn't offer any footage of Iron Man, Black Widow, and company that we've not already seen in previous teasers, but we do get some new dialogue. It's really just a countdown–both to the movie's release in three days time and the Avengers' mission to save their friends and stop Thanos. We see Earth's Mightiest Heroes gathered and ready for some kind of operation to undo the catastrophic events of Infinity War, seemingly with Bruce Banner counting down to some kind of go signal. Nonetheless, it's all still very exciting–check it out above.
This is the latest in quite a bit of promotional material released over the past few weeks. There was a TV spot featuring new footage of Captain Marvel's new suit, another that showed Hawkeye getting into a fight on a street, a teaser that focuses on the team's mission, and the first full clip from the movie.
Endgame is reportedly on track for a record-breaking opening. We already knew its first-week pre-sales were very strong, but it could set the all-time record for a movie opening in the US. Given that this is the culmination of 10-plus years of Marvel movies–from the original Iron Man up through more recent movies like Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther–that really is not much of a surprise, especially after Infinity War's strong opening last year.
Endgame premiered in Los Angeles last night–check out our roundup of the first reactions from the movie. To get ready for Endgame, you might also want to read our guide to the best order to rewatch the MCU movies, plus this look at how powerful Thanos is without the Infinity Gauntlet.
Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26. It stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Brie Larson, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Danai Gurira, Paul Rudd, and Josh Brolin.
To coincide with the big release, Marvel appears to be collaborating with Epic Games on another Fortnite-Avengers crossover event. Last year saw a limited-time mode added to the game that allowed players to equip the Infinity Gauntlet and transform into Thanos. This time around, we don't know what to expect, but teasers have suggested you might be able to wield Captain America's shield and Thor's Stormbreaker.
