As if the trailer for Avengers: Endgame wasn't emotional enough, a fan had to go and edit it in the style of Logan, set to Johnny Cash's "Hurt." There have been many deeply emotional moments during the MCU's 20-film (to date) run, including Steve Rogers' decision to sacrifice himself to stop Red Skull's plan in Captain America: The First Avenger, Tony Stark's realization that The Winter Soldier murdered his parents in Captain America: Civil War, and T'Challa encountering his ancestors in the afterlife in Black Panther. Of course, the MCU experienced a whole new level of sadness when Thanos snapped so many of its heroes out of existence at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
While from the looks of it, Avengers: Endgame will do its best to tug at viewers' heartstrings, it's hard to imagine any potential Marvel moment sadder than a shocked Tony Stark cradling a terrified Peter Parker as he slowly turns to dust. Naturally, that ending left fans absolutely clamoring for footage from the project formerly known as Avengers 4 in the many months since Infinity War's release, and this past Friday, Endgame's trailer finally arrived.
The fan reaction to Avengers: Endgame's trailer has been almost entirely positive so far, with the footage serving to fuel some fan theories, kill off others, and tease a world deeply damaged by Thanos' genocidal actions. Its scenes of Captain America crying and Tony Stark making peace with the fact that he's going to soon die in space also left many shell-shocked. Well, those fans should get ready to feel even worse, as Youtube creator Mr. Krepshus has taken it upon himself to re-cut the Avengers: Endgame trailer in the style of Logan's iconic trailer, complete with Johnny Cash's classic cover of Nine Inch Nails' song "Hurt." The result is truly heartbreaking. Check it out below.
This emotional fan edit of the Avengers: Endgame trailer is a bit shorter than the official version, although that's seemingly due to the cuts between footage here coming at a faster pace. To add to the overall melancholy vibe of this version, the creator even opted to add in older footage of Steve watching Bucky vanish in Infinity War, Thor in happier times with Loki during Thor: Ragnarok, and Hawkeye hugging his children from Avengers: Age of Ultron, all of which are contrasted with those heroes looking despondent in shots from Endgame.
While one assumes most (if not all) of the heroes dusted by Thanos in Infinity War will be resurrected before the end of Avengers 4, there's no guarantees. There's also no guarantees that beloved characters like Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor will survive the final battle against Thanos. All fans can do is hope that their favorites make it, because as Tony says in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, part of the journey is the end.
