37. The Aftermath of the Snap
The Avengers: Endgame trailer moves on to the aftermath of the snap, focusing on the area around the Statue of Liberty. The survivors of the snap appear to have huddled at the foot of the statue in a boat community, seeking comfort and companionship from one another. This is a major hint that there's some degree of a time jump over the course of the film to allow for this kind of community to develop.
36. Steve Rogers' Support Group
Steve Rogers is part of a support group of snap survivors, people who are desperately attempting to make sense of their grief and loss. Dialogue later in the Avengers: Endgame trailer suggests that Steve is running the group, taking Peggy's advice to heart, and yet is struggling to practice what he preaches.
35. Hawkeye Training His Daughter
The MCU's version of Clint Barton is a family man. Avengers: Age of Ultron revealed that he has a wife and three kids, who live in a farmhouse in the countryside. Hawkeye's long been attempting to retire from his superhero career in order to spend time with his family, but keeps dragging back into it; in the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Clint signed a plea deal with the US Government and was placed under two years' house arrest at his homestead. He's clearly enjoyed quality time with the wife and kids, and the Avengers: Endgame trailer shows a touching moment in which he's training his daughter Lila to use a bow and arrow.
Of course, comic book fans know that it hints at a dark tragedy. In the Ultimate comic book range, Clint Barton's family were killed, and their deaths launched him on a dark path. It's safe to assume that the same will happen in Avengers: Endgame; what we're likely seeing here is the precursor to Hawkeye's family dying as a result of the snap, leading to his adopting the Ronin identity (and not, as some have speculated, the MCU's Kate Bishop).
The Avengers: Endgame trailers have confirmed that Hawkeye has lost all hope in the wake of his family's deaths, and he appears to have committed himself to a life of violence, heading to Japan to take on the Yakuza. He's assumed the identity of Ronin, a vigilante identity he took up at his darkest times in the comics.
33. Black Widow Meets Ronin
Black Widow has caught up with Clint Barton in Japan, and looks pretty shocked at how far her friend has fallen. Most of these scenes were shown in the original teaser trailer, but this new Avengers: Endgame trailer goes a little further. It shows Natasha gently taking Clint's hand, expressing heartfelt sympathy for her friend's suffering. Black Widow has worked with Clint for 20 years at this point, and she's a close friend of the family - to the extent that one of Clint's children, Nathaniel, was named after her. She, too, will be heartbroken at their deaths.
32. Peggy's Funeral
One of the central themes of Steve Rogers' life is loss, and it's neatly symbolized by Peggy Carter's death in Captain America: Civil War. Peggy was the love of Steve's life, but their relationship was brought to an abrupt end when Captain America was frozen in the ice. He was able to be there for the last few years of her life, but her passing was a heartbreaking moment for the First Avenger. With the death of Bucky during the snap, all connections to Steve's old life back in the 1930s and 1940s have now been severed. This will surely be a key motivator for him in Avengers: Endgame.
