5. Thanos Arrives In Avengers: Endgame's Marketing
The Avengers: Endgame trailers ends on a dramatic note, promising the ultimate rematch between Thanos and the Avengers. This time around, the Mad Titan cuts a far more impressive figure, wearing his armor to battle. This is actually quite significant; in Avengers: Infinity War, he didn't bother with it, reflecting his dominance as he gathered the Infinity Stones. He wouldn't be wearing this armor if he didn't believe himself to be a lot more vulnerable.
4. Thanos Can Still Use The Infinity Gauntlet
That vulnerability may be the fact that the snap involved a phenomenal release of energy, badly scarring Thanos and even damaging the Infinity Gauntlet. As Joe Russo noted on the Avengers: Infinity War audio commentary, "See there, with his Gauntlet and the arm, the power that it takes to use all six Stones is significant, and clearly damaged the Gauntlet and damaged Thanos permanently." And yet, for all he may be weakened, Thanos is still able to use the Infinity Gauntlet. He arrives in a flare of blue Tesseract energy, confirming he's teleported using the Space Stone.
3. Iron Man - Against A Backdrop Of Destruction
The Avengers: Endgame trailer shows a brief shot of Tony Stark stood before a scene of utter destruction. This is a very curious scene, particularly given the architecture looks to be human; tie-in merchandise has teased that Thanos and his Outriders will launch an attack upon the Avengers Compound.
That suggests the battle between the Avengers and Thanos will ultimately come to Earth, with Tony Stark donning the Mark 85 - surely his most powerful armor yet - in order to take on the Mad Titan.
2. The Avengers Trinity Face Thanos
It all comes down to this: Marvel's own Trinity - Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor - face off against Thanos. These three heroes have stood at the center of the Infinity Saga, stars of their own trilogies. More ominously, all three actors' contracts are believed to be coming to a close, which means viewers are concerned any one could pay the ultimate price to stop Thanos. The Avengers: Endgame trailer will leave the fans a lot more tense because of this shot.
1. Thanos' Sword
The Avengers: Endgame trailer features a first glimpse of Thanos' new weapon, a double-bladed sword that's previously only been seen in tie-in merchandise. Again, the fact that Thanos feels he needs another weapon may well signify that he's a bit more vulnerable as a result of the snap.
