Avengers 4 Fan-Made Posters Tease One Last Mission For Original Team

Avengers Endgame Fan Character Posters

Avengers: Infinity War saw the ranks of the titular superhero team stripped down to just the original six members, and now a series of fan posters pays tribute to one last mission for the old-school Avengers. In the last team-up movie, the combined forces of Wakanda, the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange failed to stop Thanos from completing the Infinity Gauntlet and wiping out half of all life in the universe, but the trailer for Avengers: Endgame indicated that there's still hope for the Avengers to put things right.

How exactly the Avengers will undo the damage done remains to be seen, but based on set photos that revisit events like the Battle of New York, the popular theory is that the Avengers will travel back in time to change the course of history. The movie's title refers to a line uttered by Doctor Strange, "We're in the endgame now," which is also a strong indication that Doctor Strange had a plan in mind for defeating Thanos... by first letting him win.

After what felt like an interminably long wait, Marvel fans were finally given a first look at the next Avengers movie in a trailer released several weeks ago, which also finally confirmed the movie's title, Avengers: Endgame. The trailer release was also accompanied by a basic poster, but since there will likely be another long wait before Marvel unveils official character posters, comic book fan and artist ALASTØR has put together some amazing fan-made Avengers: Endgame posters featuring the original six team members.

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently uncertain, with only one movie - Spider-Man: Far From Home - that has a confirmed release date after Endgame. There's a definite sense that the next team-up movie will be the end of the Avengers as we know them, and that it will involve some permanent casualties, so characterizing it as "One Last Mission" seems appropriate. The superhero team broke apart after the events of Captain America: Civil War, with many of them becoming fugitives on the run from authorities, and since Iron Man and Captain America were kept apart in Infinity War, the Avengers still have yet to properly reform.

The Avengers have changed a lot since Nick Fury first recruited them, with new members like Vision and Scarlet Witch joining the team, so it was certainly a deliberate decision to only have the original six members (and Rocket Raccoon) survive the snap. If this really is the Avengers' final mission, there's no better way to go than by undoing Thanos' work and restoring trillions of lost lives - their friends included.
