Small Details You Missed In The Avengers: Endgame Trailer

Small Details You Missed In The Avengers: Endgame Trailer


After months of waiting and endless speculation,
the trailer for the fourth Avengers movie has finally arrived. For one thing, the the trailer reveals the
title for the feature as Avengers: Endgame, confirming previously leaked info indicating
that that might be the case. But beyond that, there’s a world of mystery
to this footage, showing us our first official glimpse of the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Thanos’
decimation. You’ve already watched and rewatched this
thing about a thousand times, so let’s break down some of the small details you might have
missed in the trailer for Avengers: Endgame. Thanos – now retired to his quiet life as
a big purple space farmer – has put up his armor for good as an incredibly imposing scarecrow. You can actually see the scarecrow in Avengers:
Infinity War, in the lower right corner of the frame during the movie’s ending sequence
of Thanos looking over his crops toward the shining sun on some unknown world. But this image has some extra significance
you might not be aware of. In the six-issue Infinity Gauntlet comic book
series – which served as the inspiration for the two-part Infinity War story – the scarecrow
is a striking image from the final issue. In the comic, the scarecrow appears to be
Thanos’ only company. When the heroes come upon it, they regard
it as “an empty shell of what was”, which may imply some interesting twists in store
for the final showdown between the Avengers and Thanos. As for Thanos himself, he’s only seen briefly
in the trailer, running his hand over some plantlife with his burnt-up Infinity Gauntlet. Does he have the strength for a second round? We’ll see — after all: “We’re in the endgame now.” After sitting out the events of Infinity War,
Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton has returned for the fourth Avengers adventure – and something
is very different about him. He’s got a new haircut, a new samurai-inspired
outfit, and he seems to be stomping the streets of Japan, hunting down some sharp-dressed
victims and leaving them dead in the street for some unknown end. You alright, Clint? This is more than just a costume change – it’s
a whole new identity, one that Natasha seems somewhat shocked to see. Rumors have been swirling about the meaning
of Clint’s absence from Infinity War since before the movie even came out. The prevailing theory has been that Barton
sheds his old identity – and maybe even a little bit of his morality – when his entire
family presumably gets dusted at the end of Infinity War. We didn’t see it go down on screen, so we
don’t know for sure if that that’s what happened – but c’mon. Do you think Clint is booking flights to Japan
to go stab people if he’s got a wife and kids at home? In a bittersweet twist, it looks as though
Tony Stark has commandeered the newest vessel of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the ​Benatar​,
which took the place of the ​Milano​ after its destruction in ​Guardians of the Galaxy
Vol. 2​. Of course, not all is as bleak as it first
appears. For one, Tony does not seem to be alone on
this sad, doomed trip across the universe. It looks like Nebula is there with him, hitching
a ride after her ship was destroyed during her showdown with Thanos on Titan. Her blue fingers can be seen on someone’s
shoulder – probably Tony’s. Considering she’s more robot than mortal being
at this point thanks to Thanos’ tinkering, it’s possible that the lack of oxygen and
food on the ship isn’t as big a deal to her as it is to Tony. For months and months, rumors have swirled
about the Avengers going back in time to undo the destruction Thanos has caused, a theory
supported by leaks indicating that the production was rebuilding sets from older movies. It’s hard to think of any other reason why
Cap would be looking at a photo of Peggy with such significance, unless he was about to
go and find her for some reason. Other set leaks have indicated​ that the
movie may have built a new set for Camp Lehigh, the boot camp in Captain America: The First
Avenger where a pre-super serum Steve Rogers first proved his worth. The base, located in New Jersey, was also
visited in the modern era in ​Captain America: The Winter Soldier​ – and more importantly,
it was destroyed​. So if the movie is taking us to Camp Lehigh
as the leaks suggest, then it’s probably not going to be in the present day. And that would help explain Cap going back
to his outfit from the Winter Soldier – sort of like when Star Trek characters have to
go back in time and try their best to blend in so as not to screw up the timestream: “Uh-oh.” “Wow!” It’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but
​​the Avengers: Endgame ​trailer revealed that Shuri, the woman who we thought might
be Wakanda’s last hope, is among the missing. During the sequence of Bruce Banner looking
at the Avengers’ list of missing people, the image of Letitia Wright’s Shuri can briefly
be seen among the presumed dead. With this, we’re meant to believe that she
dies offscreen, snapped into dust just like her brother. While the team’s intelligence is wrong about
Ant-Man, who is indeed missing but not dead, we have no reason to believe that Shuri made
it out alive. But while we’re on the subject of Ant-Man… Clint Barton isn’t the only Avenger making
a triumphant return. Now that most of the heavy-hitters are dead
and dusted, it’s time to welcome Scott Lang to the party. “Welcome to the party, pal!” While Natasha and Steve are moping around
Avengers HQ, they get a video message from Ant-Man, who seems to be at the gates of the
facility. “Can you buzz me in?” That’s exciting enough – but what’s more exciting
is the gear that Scott brought with him. “sorry” “My bad.” Last time we saw Ant-Man’s Ant-Van, it had
been turned into a makeshift laboratory, kitted out with a portal to the Quantum Realm. In the post-credits sequence of Ant-Man and
the Wasp, Scott entered the Quantum Realm and appeared to be stuck there, with his partners
being dusted before they could pull him back. Scott sure looked doomed – so what gives? Right before Scott jumped into the Quantum
Realm, he got this warning from the original Wasp: “And don’t get sucked into a time vortex. We won’t be able to save you.” It seems pretty possible that Scott used a
vortex to exit the Realm, depositing himself in the future – and now he’s brought the time
travel tech to Avengers HQ. Who would have thought Ant-Man would be so
important when it came time to save the world? Probably this guy did:
