Avengers: Endgame Special Look Trailer Breakdown: 34 Story Reveals & Secrets

Marvel's final trailer for Avengers: Endgame reveals more secrets about the upcoming movie - discover everything in our trailer breakdown! Avengers: Endgame promises to be the ultimate rematch, with Earth's surviving heroes desperately attempting to avert or undo Thanos' snap from the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel's keeping the plot a closely guarded secret, with Kevin Feige even teasing that the trailers may only include footage from the first 15-20 minutes of the film.

With tickets on sale now, Marvel has released one final Avengers: Endgame trailer. Where the others focused on setting the scene, this one attempts to give viewers a sense of what kind of story they should expect. The trailer breaks down into roughly three sections: the Avengers formulate a plan, they regroup, and they head to confront Thanos. Unfortun,ately they're both short-handed and potentially significantly overmatched; in spite of the addition of Captain Marvel, the truth is that they have nothing to equal the power of the Infinity Gauntlet.

Of course, the reality is that the story is probably going to be a lot more complex. Marvel has a habit of digitally editing scenes to avoid any big reveals, and there's already evidence they've been doing that with trailers for Avengers: Endgame. That means it's a good idea to look closely at this final trailer in order to work out what it really means.

34. The Avengers Compound (Made Foreboding)

The Avengers: Endgame trailer opens with a dark and foreboding shot of the Avengers Compound, with the sun setting over it. It's symbolic, suggesting that the snap - which is called the Decimation in-universe - is the twilight of civilization. In planning to somehow avert or undo the snap, the Avengers are essentially trying to turn back time and prevent nightfall.

33. The Avengers Have A Plan - And Bruce Banner Isn't Convinced

Previous Avengers: Endgame trailers have confirmed that the Avengers have a plan, and this one finally reveals what it is. Their goal is a simple one: to track down Thanos. At this stage it's unclear whether or not they're seeking revenge or actually believe they can put the universe to rights. Still, Bruce Banner isn't convinced. Thanos beat the Hulk to within an inch of his life, and he wasn't even using an Infinity Stone to do it. Now he has possession of all six gems, the Avengers' numbers are diminished, and Bruce presumably still isn't on good terms with his Hulk persona. It's notable that none of the trailers have yet shown a glimpse of the Hulk.

32. Thor Is Back With The Avengers

The other Avengers: Endgame trailers have suggested that the film begins with the Avengers scattered, and it's possible Thor has gone on a quest to try to find any surviving Asgardians. If that's the case, he's clearly returned by this point in the film. The God of Thunder looks understandably tense, probably blaming himself for not killing Thanos when he had the chance.

31. War Machine Cracks Wise

Everybody copes with grief in different ways, and for War Machine that means cracking wise. But it's dark humor, and his face shows how much it hurts to admit the truth; that Thanos has slaughtered so many people he knew and cared about. It's worth noting that the cost of the snap could be higher for Rhodey than for many of the other Avengers; they live for superheroism, whereas he's always been a lot more grounded in the US military, and presumably lost countless friends and colleagues when Thanos killed half the life in the universe.

30. Black Widow in Japan

The Avengers: Endgame trailer includes a brief shot of Black Widow in a Japanese garden. The rain may be a pathetic fallacy, a narrative tool used to represent a character's emotions through the weather in a scene. She's headed to Japan in order to track down her old friend Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, who is expected to have lost his family in the Decimation. Given how close Natasha is to Clint, that experience will be particularly painful.

29. Captain America... Having Just Shaved?

In Avengers: Infinity War, Steve Rogers had abandoned the Captain America identity. He'd been on the run from the authorities for the last two years, operating as an illegal vigilante, and in order to help conceal his identity, he'd grown a beard. But in the aftermath of Thanos' snap, the world has a lot more to worry about than a handful of rogue superheroes; Steve no longer needs to conceal his identity, and so in all Avengers: Endgame footage so far he's clean shaven. Surprisingly, this looks to be a moment the movie will show: the trailer shows Steve stood in one of the bathrooms of the Avengers Compound, looking at his reflection in the mirror.
