The New 'Avengers: Endgame' Trailer Just Blew Up Some Fan Theories
With pretty much no fanfare at all, Marvel have dropped a new Avengers: Endgame trailer. Quite a lot of it is made up of clips from older Marvel films but with an 'in memoriam' sepia tint to it, but the second half—oh boy, that second half. Watch it here, then meet us below.
A few things here. Tony Stark makes it back to Earth! According to earlier trailers it looked like he'd be floating round his tin can, far above the world, until his oxygen ran out. But no, there he is, striding along with the rest of the gang in an airport wearing a fancy new white suit.
That suit isn't a surprise to anyone who's been paying attention to the toy factories of Vietnam lately, where a leak of some upcoming Endgame toys—sorry, character models—suggested the surviving members of the gang were due a glow-up. A popular line of reasoning is that these are special Quantum Realm-proof suits which stop your head exploding or whatever it is the Quantum Realm does to you if you're not properly equipped.
There's also confirmation that Scott Lang managed to squeeze himself out of the Quantum Realm—which he found himself in at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp—and pop out in the modern day. Some fans had thought he'd ended up somewhere in the mid-90s, but we see him checking the missing posters of people lost in Thanos' snap.
Nice little scene between Thor and Captain Marvel at the end there, too. It's been obvious for ages that she'd have a big role in the finale to the Avengers story, but it's very intensely exciting to see her in the mix at last.
Oh, and Hawkeye's undercut pompadour-slash-mohawk-slash-mullet is an absolute disgrace. What is that? What is it? It's a bit mid-70s Paul McCartney, a bit late-80s Bono, and a whole lot of a bloke who reckons he can do a decent fist of Tattoo Fixers-style cover-ups but using a hot needle and a biro in his shed. Get rid.
