Ayman Elhag, Entertainment Editor

One of the most anticipated movies of the year is right around the corner, Avengers: Endgame. The film directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo is based on the Avengers by the late Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

The first trailer came out on Dec. 7, 2018. The two and a half-minute trailer opens with Tony Stark in space sending a message to Pepper Potts. The scene depicts a depressed Stark as he mentions that his food and water is depleted and will soon be out of the oxygen the following day as well.

It is noted that Thanos fulfilled his promise and wiped out 50% of all living creatures. With Stark in space, the rest of the Avengers including Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, and Bruce Banner appear plotting for a showdown against Thanos in order to bring back their allies.

The epic teaser trailer concludes with Black Widow telling Steve Rogers that his plan will work to which he responds “I know it will.”
“I can’t wait until Endgame is released because I grew up watching Marvel movies so this the ultimate conclusion that will tie it all together,” senior Javonte Durr-Cannon. “I’m looking forward to seeing how some of the superheroes that haven’t met yet will react with each other.”

The second Endgame trailer came out on Mar. 14th and answered some questions as well as sparked new ones. The trailer is mostly composed of the remaining Avengers training and getting stronger for what seems to be an attempt to finish off Thanos and bring back the other 50% of the living creatures that Thanos wiped out.
The biggest takeaway from this trailer and what seems to have most fans excited and relieved is that Tony Stark, or Iron Man, was shown at the end of the trailer with the remaining Avengers. The previous trailer shows him near death so it can be assumed that he was saved somehow.

There is a lot of excitement building around the movie due to the cliffhanger conclusion that the first part of the film was ended on. Endgame is officially set to be released on April 26.

“I have watched all of the Marvel movies starting from Iron Man all the way to Avengers: Infinity War.” senior Abu Elsadeg said. “So I am eager to see how the Avenger bounce back from this major setback now that Thanos is wiping out half of the population in the universe,” Elsadeg said

The first movie of the two-part series to Endgame, Infinity War, depicts how each of the Avengers went through their own personal battles. The perspective of all the Avengers is showcased switching from Thor to Iron Man to others with each character getting around six minutes of screen time.

In the end credits of Infinity War, Nick Fury is shown calling Captain Marvel by the logo that came up. When Marvel was scheduled to release Captain Marvel before Endgame, people knew Captain Marvel would play an important role in saving the disappeared Avengers.

The previous movie also had a good balance of jokes and severity. “It was interesting seeing how they mixed humor with the seriousness of their mission that would save the universe, and I want to see more of that,” said Durr-Cannon

Some unconfirmed statements have left fans scrambling to guess what will go down. Many rumors have emerged about the movie after both trailers coming out. One of which being that only two original Avengers will survive.

Some viewers also noticed that fan favorite characters Hawkeye and Ant-man were missing. Although Ant-man’s absence was explained by his own movie, Hawkeye might be playing an important role in the late Avengers’ rescue.

There are also confirmed sequels for several of the characters who disintegrated into dust in Infinity War such as Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and the Guardians of the Galaxy so people can assume that the Avengers at least bring back this group of heroes.

After years of epic Avengers movies, Marvel looks to go out on top and satisfy their everlasting fanbase by answering all the questions sparked by the end of Infinity War and the two trailers that have released.

“This movie will define Marvel forever,” Durr-Cannon said.
