The first trailer didn’t reveal much. The Super Bowl TV Spot gave us even less to deal with.
And I loved them both. So what did I really expect from a new trailer? Not the stirring of emotions that makes me want to fast-forward through the remaining six weeks until April 26.
After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins. With the help of the remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ (voiced by Josh Brolin) actions and restore order to the universe.
The beginning of the trailer just shows you how far we have come in the past decade: from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) fighting his way out of captivity and becoming Iron Man to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) becoming the All-American super soldier, Captain America to Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) ascension to the throne of Asgard. Those events are captured spectacularly in grey with a hint of red along with the decimation of Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet snap that eliminated so many of Marvel’s heroes.
The remaining heroes are left broken, struggling to move on: Tony and Nebula are stuck in space. Scott Lang has escaped the Quantum Realm to an unknown present. And the man who was absent through Infinity War, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) looks lost when Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) finds him to bring him back into the fold. I guess it’s safe to say that the Decimation reached the retired Avenger’s family and put him back into the action.
Captain America’s words about moving on hit your right in the heart as he struggles to find his way.
“Some do, but not us.” A solemn Steve Rogers speaks to Widow.
But Natasha’s words provide views some hope as they owe everyone who’s not with them to try even with the smallest chance that could present itself to the heroes. From there, you see the heroes take that chance as the words “Whatever it takes” are repeated by Rogers, Barton, Romanoff, and Stark.
And it might take everything the original Avengers have left in order to save the universe after the crippling devastation from the events of Infinity War. The action shots from the heroes just has your blood pumping to see this film. Right. Now. How about the team up between Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and War Machine (Don Cheadle)? The final motion of them all in matching uniforms in the hanger of Avengers HQ had the words “Oh. My. God” leaving my lips.
Let’s not also forget the newest recruit that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) called in the post-credits scene of Infinity War: Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Watching her and Thor’s staring contest is worth speculating how entertaining how her interaction with the rest of the Avengers will be.
