Avengers: Endgame's latest TV spot has Thanos proclaiming that he won. Marvel Studios is gearing up to wrap up the 22-film arc that they have been treading since 2008's Iron Man with the upcoming ensemble flick hitting theaters this month. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo with the story written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Avengers 4 will shift the focus to the remaining heroes after their defeat to Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
Plot details continues to be scant with Disney's marketing not giving anything away that may help the public figure out what lies ahead for the remaining MCU heroes. But between leaked set photos and interviews of people involved in the project, Endgame will likely see the Avengers travel back in time as part of their mission to restore peace and order in the universe and take down Thanos. But with the film's released slowly nearing, more marketing materials are surely rolling out, including this brand new TV spot.
Airing during last night's Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder game (via ComicBook.com) was short but meaty clip for Endgame. The video is a mix of old and new footage, with a brand new look at Carol looking at the people who were disintegrated into dust. Another key point in the video is Tony seemingly still in space with a surprised look on his face, as well as Rocket and War Machine engaged in battle. But arguably the most interesting detail from the spot is Thanos' narration, proclaiming that his work is done and that he's already won. Watch the video below.
The release of the spot came as a surprise for many considering that Marvel Studios has just dropped a special look at the movie in light of the release of the film's tickets. The one-minute clip already gave fans a lot of new visuals for the movie which in turn gave fans new material for their respective theories, and the latest spot adds to that. Despite that, fans need to be cautious about building their expectations based on these trailers since the Russos' have admitted to manipulating footage to throw off the public from figuring out the movie's full plot.
Assuming, however, that everything in the new spot makes it to the movie, it will be interesting to see where Thanos' monologue will come to play and who he's talking to. Yes, he won Infinity War, but there could be repercussions to the snap that may not exactly be worth in in hindsight.
It's curious how many more TV spots Marvel Studios will release for Avengers: Endgame. They've been very adamant about wanting to keep the story's tightly under wraps prior to its release later this month. Frankly, there's really no need for a massive marketing push for the movie since the public is already interested in seeing the flick - the high demand for ticket that resulted in clogging online retailing sites was a good indication of that. If anything, the upcoming press tour will be more likely about seeing the beloved MCU actors interact through various junkets instead of selling the film.
