The brand new trailer for the fourth Avengers film is here and we finally have the full title for next summer’s superhero epic — Avengers: Endgame.
The film picks up after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and finds our remaining heroes living in a world where half the universe has been killed by the cosmic maniac Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Speaking to the Sun last year, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige said that the fourth Avengers film will bring to a close the current iteration of the MCU.
“This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there,” he said.
A vague synopsis teases, “Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
In the trailer we see Robert Downey’s Iron Man adrift in space recording a message to his beloved Pepper Potts.
“If you find this recording, don’t feel bad about this. Part of the journey is the end,” he says.
But our heroes — those still standing — won’t go down without a fight. And they have a plan.
“This is the fight of our lives,” Chris Evans’ Captain America says.
We get glimpses of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as two heroes who didn’t appear in Infinity War Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).
In an interview earlier this year, Feige told the Sun that the MCU is a world without end, but “storylines can come to an end” and the changes will be finite.
“The best stories do come to an end.”
Avengers: Endgame opens April 26, 2019.
