The first trailer for the fourth Avengers movie is here. The sequel to this year’s hugely successful Avengers: Infinity War has been shrouded in secrecy–the movie’s title hadn’t even been revealed until now. But we now know the movie is titled Avengers: Endgame and this first teaser gives us a hint of what to expect when it hits theaters in May next year.
The trailer opens with a voiceover from Tony Stark, who is stranded in space with oxygen about to run out. Back on Earth, we see various desolate shots of the Avengers building, while Steve, Natasha, Bruce, and Thor mourn the loss of their friends after Thanos snapped his fingers. But it seems that Steve has a plan. There’s also the return of two big characters who were absent from Infinity War–check it about above.
Avengers: Endgame releases on May 3, 2019 and is directed once more by Joe and Anthony Russo. Unsurprisingly, virtually all the major actors from the MCU are set to return, so that means Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, and so on. It had been rumored that this might be the last Marvel movie for some of the MCU’s longest-running stars–in particular Evans–but nothing has been confirmed about their future in the franchise.
In related news, the second trailer for Captain Marvel was also released this week. This is the first MCU movie to arrive in 2019, and it releases on March 8. It stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jude Law, and is the first Marvel movie with a female superhero as the central character.
