There's a slew of new Avengers: Endgame TV spots with never-before-released footage from the film. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo with the story written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the upcoming film is the 22nd entry to the MCU, which started in 2008 with Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man. The culmination of everything that has transpired in the franchise for the last decade, it'll pick up after the tragic events of Avengers: Infinity War that left the remaining heroes at their lowest point after Thanos successfully wiped out half of life in the universe using the completed Infinity Gauntlet.
Anticipation for Endgame continues to build as the release nears. The film's global press tour is in full swing with the cast and crew's latest stop being Seoul, South Korea. Back in North America, Marvel Studios continues to roll out several marketing material for the movie. While fans already got their fill of trailers, posters and TV spots still come out for the final film in The Infinity Saga. The latest batch of the latter provide some scenes that were never-before-seen, giving a bit more context to the narrative, which up until now is still tightly under wraps.
The trio of TV spots may only be running for less than 30 seconds each, but it includes new several scenes from the movie. Released by Marvel Studios and collated by YouTube channel FilmArtsy, the first spot features Hawkeye and Black Widow's moment aboard the Benatar; Ronin fighting in Japan; Pepper Potts joining the team in welcoming Tony Stark and Nebula from space, a hilarious moment between Rhodey and Scott Lang. The second clip opens with Stark and Steve Rogers talking about getting the whole team; Rhodey firing his updated War Machine suit, Widow training; and Rocket seemingly doing some ship maintenance. Finally, the third video plays a bit different from its predecessors. It includes a chunk of an actual scene from the film where Captain Marvel lays out a simple plan of getting back the stones "to bring everyone back;" a team-up of Hawkeye and Iron Man sporting and using his new armor.

Aside from never-before-seen footage, fans can also hear new dialogue from Stark delivering his own motivational speech, presumably telling his comrades: "it's time to live up to our name." For years, the MCU's premier league of superheroes have been called the Avengers, but they barely have anything to avenge for. Despite having initial minor losses, they always come out on top. The first time they were defeated was in Infinity War, with Thanos proving his commitment to his goal, not letting anything get on the way between him and achieving it. But with so much riding on this next mission, particularly for the original Avengers, fans can expect them to avenge the fallen whatever it takes - as emphasized in Endgame's marketing materials.
While majority of the viewing public is eager to know what goes down in Avengers: Endgame, some might feel like Marvel Studios are revealing too much in these new TV spots. They've been really good at crafting non-spoiler but still engaging trailers and for the most part, they've worked for the fans. It'll be a shame if they undo all that by rolling out too much new footage in these short clips. That being said, it's important to note that the Russos' admitted to footage manipulation in marketing clips to throw off people's theories about the movies, so maybe some of these shots are either different or not even in the film.
