Avengers prepare to take the fight to Thanos in ‘Endgame’ CinemaCon footage
Avengers: Endgame remains a glorious mystery — one we can’t wait to dig into once it hits theaters April 26.
Today’s clip from the upcoming fourquel finale to the MCU superhero series was essentially a gathering of the Avengers who were not turned to dust in Infinity War as they contemplate how to track down and take down Thanos
The clip also serves as a reminder that Marvel’s greatest strength is its knack for creating memorable characters and throwing them together. The team dynamic is what sells this footage, more than whatever convoluted plan they’ve cooked up for getting rid of Thanos.
And, finally, it reveals that part of Marvel’s plan here is to share very few of its plans at all. As entertaining as this extended clip was, it offers very little we haven’t already seen, whether in the Captain Marvel credits or in earlier teasers.
All the characters from the previous scene are on board, and a few of them raise their hands, including Cap. “You better not throw up on my ship,” says Rocket.
Also featuring are Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket and Karen Gillan’s Nebula who may just have the secret to where Thanos and his Infinity Stones are hiding out. If there’s even a small chance to find him, says Johansson, “We owe it to everyone not in this room to try.”
As the scene wraps, Thor summons his new weapon that was forged in Infinity Warand quips of Danvers, “I like this one.” Cap gets on board: “Let’s go get this son of a bitch.” Cut to the crew in Rocket’s space ship as they make a jump to light speed.
Endgame kicks off internationally on April 24, including in China, and will be dominating the rest of the globe by April 26 when all overseas markets will be open as well as domestic. While it’s still early days to put a full projection on the worldwide launch, a new all-time record certainly seems to be in store.
