At the end ofcredits promised "Thanos will return." So Josh Brolin's purple, giant villain returns in April Avengers: Endgame, but who else? If you've seen Infinity War ( ), you know it's a bit of a mystery. And a three-hour mystery by the directors Joe and Anthony Russo – so before taking you.
Below are three most recent tidbits.
Here is the trailer
Sometimes the film studios release tips on when their big trailer will fall ̵1; during the Super Bowl or on the Star Wars Celebration. But on Thursday, March 14, . And guess who's joining the gang? Captain Marvel, of course.
It is a flashback-filled trailer that shows Captain America dreaming of measuring up to World War II soldier level and also tips for the future, with the surviving Avengers who are probably preparing for something in white Star Wars Stormtrooper-like traits. (Space? The Quantum Realm?)
To no surprise, many people want to see the Avengers: Endgame, and the film research site Exhibition Relations reports that the film could be shattered. According to Collider, the Exhibitor Relations list the movie on the track to beat its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, and set a new opening weekend post of $ 282 million. Avengers: Infinity War set record with its $ 258 million opening weekend in 2018.
Take a break
Marvel movies have come fast and furious (sorry, wrong franchise) lately, but a break comes. July will see the release ofreportedly taking place just minutes after the Avengers: Endgame's conclusion. But Avengers: Endgame was the last movie in the MCU phase three, while Spider-Man: Far from Home comes not only from Sony, but is the beginning of a whole new phase. Like Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld said on Twitter, the break after so many movies can be weird.
"Still enclosing my head that there are no Marvel movies currently playing," wrote Liefeld on February 27. "So a whole year absent Marvel movies that follow Spider Man?"
Yes, look so far out. Here is ourand after Spider-Man: Far From Home there is a year-long break to gets his solo film in May 2020.
] More News
In his quest to balance the universe, Thanos acquired all the infinite signs and zapped half the population of the universe, just as he threatened. Many of Marvel's great heroes were among the missing half of the population who were just kind of … turned into piles of sand which then blew away.
Sonow has a great situation: No way are all the money that makes Marvel heroes gone too good. But some of them probably have to bite the dust for quite dramatic reasons (and since some actors have [publicly spoken about] to move on ). We have to wait to see exactly who is taking early retirement, but at present we can summarize what we know.
What's it called?
There was much speculation about what the film would be called – for a long time it was simply known as Avengers 4, and many feared that the real title would be a giant, gut-wrenching spoiler. Endgame was mentioned early in the rumor, partly becauseuntrue says Tony Stark, "We are in the end game now."
The term actually comes from the chess world, referring to the scene in the game where very few bits remain, making fine allegorical meaning. In Infinity War, Thanos and Avengers were matched in a giant chess game, and then Thanos pulled out what seems to be a checkmate.
But the game may not be over. Doctor Strange himself made a devastating victim, handing over the gemstone to Thanos, just as chess players can strategically sacrifice a piece to build on a possible victory. Now we are waiting for exactly how the playoffs will play out, and what victims will continue to do.
When will Avengers: Endgame come out?
Officially, Avengers 4 are scheduled for April 26, US edition, April 25 in the UK and April 24 in Australia.
Do you need a super-specific countdown? Marvelin November 2018, if you just want to sit there and look at it, check down to the release date.
The film was shaken back withbeginning in August 2017 and with main photography ending in January 2018. Filming was done in the Atlanta area. According to Scottish newspaper The Daily Record, several scenes were filmed in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2018.
In February 2019, directors confirmedit is still in three hours, but it can change. It would make it the longest movie in MCU – Avengers: Infinity War was 2 hours and 40 minutes long.
The movie is the fourth in a series, so if you want to watch all three previous Avengers movies, check out 2012 Avengers, 2015and 2018s . Ready with that? There are plenty of other Marvel movies to watch to enjoy the various hero's backstories. Here is to look at them.
Thanks to the trailer
]came out in December after an outrageous wait. It's pretty depressing.
Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) floats in space and speaks in a recording for girlfriend Pepper Potts about how he is likely to die in the morning. The other Avengers show that the heroes and friends they have lost, and some heroes who were not in the Infinity War show up, namely Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in their Ronin armor and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).
And on the Super Bowl Sunday, acame up. It flashed through the various lost heroes and shows how the survivors manage. Cap goes to a support group, Iron Man and Nebula are working on armor, and Black Widow is practicing at the gun. If anyone suspects that Avengers would just give up their lost friends and continue, then their alarm clock is.
As we mentioned above, the second trailer came from nowhere on March 14 and is probably the last full trailer before the movie is released.
That's how long?
Yes, in February 2019, the directors say that Endgame is running. Now, the edits are not finished, but realistically how much will they be able to shave off at this time?
Iwho runs the RunPee.com program, which tells movie players when to take a break in the bathroom, and while he hasn't seen the movie yet, he suggests that fans are looking for one scene that seems to be a big fight. It is usually a good breakpoint before the campaign begins.
And authors and film critics Robert K. Elder said that while this film is extremely long, many loose ends are squeezed. Marvels patience their fans with this, but probably superhero movies will not consistently be so long.
What we know about the act
Well,comes back – the credits promised. He seemed quite pleased with his balancing of the universe, most recently seen dormant at a nipa hut (the scene was shot at Banaue Rice Terraces in the Philippines), so it seems that the remaining Avengers have to take the fight against him.
Some think we can look at the comic book version of this story for how things can work, but there are always discrepancies between series and movies, so don't expect an exact copy. Still, if things fall that way, expect great roles for Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Remember, oddly making an odd decision in Infinity War, handing over the timestamp he said he would always protect. Is it because it was necessary for the scenario where he saw our heroes win? He probably has the best idea of what is going on.
It is certainly a movie that plays a role. In an Instagram Q&A on November 8,whether the stakes would be higher in Avengers 4 than in previous films. "Absolutely 100 percent the highest of any of the films so far, no doubt," he said.
Remember to stay in your places after Infinity War stopped watching the scene after credit? Webut it looks like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) successfully sent a message to Captain Marvel, based on the symbol shown on what looks like Fury's pager. that will come in March 2019, and since it is only a month or two before Avengers 4, there are expected to be some plot points.
About Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner / Hulk, has something to say about it, his character's two sides will somehow fight against each other. At Marvelist's podcast in September 2018, he said: "I always thought it would be good to see them in some form of subspace where they could fight it out with Banners' brains as a kind of superpower of their own, as a weapon of arms or psi weapons against Hulk's broken strength . "
And some fans speculate that Avengers 4 will have to deal with Infinity Gauntlet and possibly send the heroes traveling through time, with Thanos who possibly perform their mortal" snap "over and over again with different results.
Also, thanks to popcorn packaging that earned buzz in early February, we wonder if these. There is probably a really good mall in Wakanda with a hair salon, and maybe even a gym.
Who's dead to stay?
Here is a list of who disappeared, molten sand style, thanks to Thanos who eliminates half of the population:
- Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan)
- Drax (Dave Bautista)
- Big (Vin Diesel)  Mantis (Pom Klementieff)
- Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)
- Spider-Man (Tom Holland)
- Peter Quill (Chris Pratt)
- Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch)
- Black Panther ( Chadwick Bosman)
- Falcon (Anthony Mackie)
Remaining to fight another day (as far as we know – we didn't see these heroes disappear) are:
- Captain America (Chris Evans)
- Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)
- Thor (Chris Hemsworth)
- Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)
- Baku (Winston Duke)
- Okoye (Danai Gurira)
- Rocket (Bradley Cooper) 19659068] War Machine (Don Cheadle)
- Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)
- Nebula (Karen Gillan)
One of the missing h The hunters will probably return, at least for a while. Marvel would not keep them all dead than letting an internal one hundred dollars in a paper shredder – too much money to lose.
Some we know will be back –and have planned additional films, so T & # 39; Challa and Star-Lord do not go anywhere, but not all wakandans and guardians can do it through. Dave Bautista, who plays the Guardian Drax Destroyer, told Den of Geek he is returning for both Avengers: Endgame and the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, though he confirmed that he does not know how Drax will return. (So technically he could still die and be seen in flashback.) And he confirmed it again in September 2018 on the British TV show Good Morning, Britain, and said he felt a little obliged to share, but that "no one told me not to say anything. "
The future may not be so bright for the three big ones – Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Chris Evans has said heand Downey and Hemsworth have also hinted at it. But we will not know until we know, and besides Marvel is famous for restarting characters who have died / been frozen / hung up the uniform.
Many fans saw a possible spoiler on October 4 when Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, tweeted that he had finished his work on the film and continued to say that this role over the past eight years has been an honor. It certainly knew for many fans that Cap had breathed his last, at least in this film round, and at least with Evans who played him.
"In other words, Cap's dead" wrote a fan altogether. Answered another, "No, he will just marry Sharon Carter and move to a farm upstairs with Old Yeller. Right?"
As infinity war actors know, some characters – or seemed to be dead – killed before Thanos did his thing. Heimdall (Idris Elba), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Vision (Paul Bettany) are on a different level than the others, but death does not always mean forever in Marvel land.
Actor Benicio del Toro, who plays The Collector, told Cinema Blend, his character is still alive, but it is unclear if he is joking. But he later seemed to confirm this belief in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
And some signs are someone's guess. We did not see the fate of Shuri (Letitia Wright), M & # 39; Baku (Winston Duke) and Wong (Benedict Wong).
Hawkeye, who was not seen in the Infinity War, returns to Avengers: Endgame. Jeremy Renner published a photo in early September explaining that it is "good to be back !!!" and then followed up with another with a set of Avengers-related hashtags. At least one fan theory suggests that the Hawkeye family, or part of it, disappeared during the great Thanos snap, and the archer is outlawed.
Even for almost a year, there have been rumors that Hawkeye is taking on another super identity, that of masked ninja Ronin, one of Hawkey's comic book identities. The trailer seems to confirm this, as Hawkeye looks to wear Ronin's armor.
And remember what we said about Gamora's death is different from those affected by the snap? It doesn't mean she's gone for good. A Reddit user is an exciting theory of Gamora's spirit captured in Soul Stone, a plot that has roots in the series. In this theory she would not be liberated in Avengers: Endgame, but in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which, as we all know,. This theory has bones – it would create a huge task for GOTG3, as Star-Lord and crew would certainly fight against the last breath to get their team member back.
Leaked images from the reshoots came out in September 2018, and lent more credibility to the idea that time travel will play a major role in the plot. (Note: Captain America's pure shaved look, and Black Widow, peeking out of a dinner, seems to have the red hair she played in previous Avengers movies.) And, hello, there's Paul "Ant-Man" Rudd!
John Slattery, who played Tony Starks father Howard in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The Civil War reportedly has a role in the film. Howard Stark was killed by the winter soldier in a disturbing scene that appeared in the 2016 Civil War. While he could be seen in flashback or simply one of Tony Stark's memories, time travel might play a role in getting him back as well.
And let's talk about Valkyrie, the Asgardian hero played by Tessa Thompson. At the end of September 2018, a fan on Twitter asked Thompson if her character was shattered in the trap, and she replied, "No, she's in one piece and THRIVING."
And some online sleuthing by The Wrap seemed to track Thompson traveling from London to Atlanta on the same private jet as Chris Hemsworth (Thor). Nothing is guaranteed, but this kind of evidence would make it seem as if Valkyrie has a decent size to play in Avengers 4.
October 24, a photo of Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Tony Stark's love interest, Pepper Potts, posted to Instagram by Uncanny Comic Quest podcast.
It's totally unofficial and unconfirmed, but it seems like showing Paltrow in what looks like his own personal version of an Iron Man suit posing in front of a green screen. "Does Tony die and Pepper take revenge on Thanos?! Let us know in the comments below," the post reads.
Where does this cost come from? Insider points out that the suit looks like a Stark builds for Potts in the series, one that she wears during the hero alias Rescue. It's not the first time the costume has emerged recently. A week before this photo was shared, a photo showing toys from Avengers 4 presented a similar armor.
Later, Paltrow said that she stopped the character if it wasn't needed by the studio one day.
"I mean, I'm a little old to be in a suit and all that on this point," said Paltrow Variety. But she praised the movies and said if she needed a como or flashback in the future, she can only gather with Avengers again. "Of course, if they said," Can you come back for a day? "I will always be there if they need me," she said.
It is yet another juicy reputation for fans to chew as the long wait for Avengers: Endgame continues.
October 26, The Wrap reported that Katherine Langford, who played as Hannah in Netflix 13 reasons, has played scenes for a role in Avengers: Endgame. Langford was nominated for a Golden Globe for his part in the Netflix series. There is no word on who to play.
Fans have theories
