Avengers 4 Trailer
The moment fans have waited for since at least the ending of Avengers: Infinity War has finally arrived: the release of the first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers 4. What’s more, contrary to the latest rumor, it does reveal the official subtitle — Endgame.
The footage is bleak, as one might expect given that half of all life in the universe was snuffed out by the snap of Thanos’ fingers. It opens with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark adrift in space with little prospect of rescue, recording a message to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), but not even knowing whether she survived.
But there is hope, of course, as the remaining Avengers have a plan, even if it may be a Hail Mary. “It’s going to work, Steve,” Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow assures Chris Evans’, Captain America. “I know it is,” he replies, “because I don’t know what I’m going to do if it doesn’t.”
And it that doesn’t work, there’s also Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, who shows up unexpectedly in the trailer’s “post-credits scene,” if you will.

The untitled sequel to Avengers: Infinity War will release on May 3, 2019. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Marvel’s Avengers 4 stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
The trailer opens with Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) in space – seemingly preparing to die.
It goes on to put Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Chris Evans (Captain America) front-and-center – as they mourn the loss of half of the universe’s population at the hands of Thanos.
All of the heroes who died in Infinity War are completely absent from the clip – leaving the mystery over how they reappear (and, indeed, if they reappear) to carry on a little while longer.
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is also MIA.
But two characters are seen entering the fray after missing Infinity War: Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man.
In a tweet, directors Joe and Anthony Russo said: “For those who have been here since the beginning. For those who have joined along the way.
“For the best fans in the Universe. This trailer is for you…
“With much love and gratitude for your patience, The RB’s.”
Avengers: Endgame is one of three offerings from the studio set for release next year: Captain Marvel is out on March 8, and Spider-Man: Far From Home follows on July 5.
