Top 8 Quotes From The Avengers: Endgame Trailer (And What They Mean)

In what's perhaps this week's biggest news, the Avengers: Endgame trailer has confirmed that the entire film will just be Avengers: Infinity War with a black and white filter.

We're joking of course.

Although the newest trailer doesn't reveal a ton of new footage, it does contain a lot of riveting dialogue. What's cool about all of the new quotes are that they seem to be revealing a few potential plot points. We think that Marvel is going to keep things completely on the down low from here on out. So, it's safe to assume that the trailer's dialogue is our best shot at figuring out what's going on in the movie. Check out the list to see the trailer's best quotes and what they mean!

8 No More Surprises

Tony Stark in Space in Avengers Endgame

From what the trailers have shown so far, it looks like Avengers: Endgame may very well end up being Tony Stark staring out the window of a spaceship for three hours. We're okay with that if that means the film also includes lines like, "I know I said no more surprises, but I was really hoping to pull off one last one." How funny would it be if Tony wasn't actually saying that to Pepper Potts and was instead saying it to someone like Howard the Duck? On a more serious note, Tony's dialogue clearly refers to a promise he made to Pepper that he would retire his crimefighting career. Conversely, the line also has to do with Tony's final stand against Thanos. We hope and pray that all this doesn't ultimately allude to Tony's demise.

7 Seems Like 1,000 Years Ago

Tony Stark Records Message in Avengers Endgame

Tony looks great for being 1,000 years old. Sorry, our mistake. What Tony really says is, "It seems like 1,000 years ago, I fought my way out of that cave...became Iron Man." Honestly speaking, the reason why it's so smart to open up the trailer with this line is due to the fact that it clearly lays out the movie's mandate. It is a rousing conclusion that brings eleven years of the MCU full circle. Moreover, the majority of the trailer uses old footage from various MCU origin movies. Tony's line about the past hints that Avengers: Endgame is probably the last chapter of what's debatably the most popular movie franchise of the 21st century.

6 The Best We Can Do Is Start Over

We don't know if we should be utterly moved or terrified that Peggy Carter's ghost narrates some of the trailer. Okay, maybe it's not technically her ghost. However, one of her lines from Captain America: Winter Soldier is used at some point. Peggy says, "The world has changed. None of us can go back. Sometimes the best we can do is start over." This trailer is just one thematic gut punch after another. A line about starting over in the face of hopelessness completely encapsulates the inherent optimism of Captain America. Having a past character like Peggy featured in the trailer doubles down on the notion that Cap is another person that may or may not see his story concluded in the film.

5 I Keep Telling Everybody They Should Move On

Avengers Endgame Captain America

Is this an Avengers: Endgame trailer or a surprise teaser for a new season of The Leftovers? Captain America calmly tells Black Widow, "I keep telling everybody that they should move on. Some do, but not us." Oh Captain, my Captain. How does that line not want to make a person cheer? The idea of The Avengers fighting back against all odds is an incredible distillation of what makes comic book movies so inspiring.

Avengers: Infinity War's ending left the world in ashes (literally) and to hear Captain America deliver such optimistic words proves that the MCU is always looking towards the horizon. Excelsior!

4 Even If There's A Small Chance

Avengers Endgame Trailer - Black Widow Training

The entire quote says, "Even if there's a small chance, we owe this to everyone not in this room." What's interesting about this line is that it seems like Black Widow is attempting to convince whoever she's speaking to.

Considering that all of The Avengers were disassembled by the end of Infinity War, our guess is that she is speaking to Captain America. Specifically, she's talking about getting the old gang back together. Avengers: Endgame has been confirmed to have a runtime of three hours. It's safe to assume that a large portion of the movie will be spent showing The Avengers kissing and making up. That sounds really weird when read out loud, but you get what we mean.

3 I Like This One

Avengers Endgame Trailer - Thor Captain Marvel and Stormbreaker

The end of the trailer shows Thor summoning his hammer and it comes rushing past Captain Marvel's head. Good thing she didn't move two inches to the left otherwise that'd be a very awkward way to kill off a character who just got her own franchise. Captain Marvel doesn't even flinch in this scene. Thor says, "I like this one." Fans have known for a while that Captain Marvel would be showing up in Avengers: Endgame, but it hasn't been shown until now how her inclusion plays out with the other heroes. Obviously, it looks like Thor approves of the woman.

However, it's still unknown whether or not if Captain Marvel is going to butt heads with the other team members. The answer is probably yes, considering that half of what makes The Avengers movies so fun is to see how their worldviews clash. Either way, The Avengers better get along with Captain Marvel since the world needs someone as strong as her to go up against Thanos.

2 We Will

Avengers Endgame Captain America Angry

Sometimes it's cool to have a lengthy superhero monologue, but other times it's just as awesome to have a very meat-and-potatoes answer. Black Widow says, "We owe it everyone in this room to try." Cap's response? A simple, "We will." What's fantastic about Captain America saying this is that it shows that he hasn't lost any shred of his humanity after the events of Infinity War. There's no other option for Captain America than to fight back.

1 Whatever It Takes

Everyone and their mother in the trailer boldly proclaims they'll do, "whatever it takes." There's not a single part here that's as impactful as this line. The quote is chilling in that it foreshadows the potential finality for some of these characters. It's also incredibly powerful because it's a reminder that Marvel wants to give fans an epic showdown for the ages. We just really pray that Hawkeye doesn't die. It looks like he has spent a lot of time on that new hairdo and it'd be super unfair to kill someone off in the middle of a glow-up.
