Whatever it takes! Watch new ‘Avengers: Endgame’ trailer

“Whatever it takes.”

That is the clear-cut theme of the new Avengers: Endgame trailer which Marvel surprised the world with early this morning.

It’s an interesting take on the superhero genre, especially since Marvel has become so synonymous with a “fun” time at the movies.

In fact, the tone is very melancholy, filled with regret on the heroes part after losing not only their friends, but half of the world due to Thanos’ snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

The beginning of the trailer provides a retrospective on how our heroes got here. We see Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in his first Iron Man suit in the desert from the film that started it all, Iron Man. Then we see Steve Rogers, a skinny Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), before he became Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger.

That’s followed by Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), who was not seen in Infinity War, teaching a young girl how to successfully fire a bow and arrow. Is she the one to take on the Hawkeye mantle since we know Clint becomes Ronin.

Then we see Steve at the funeral of the love of his life – Peggy Carter. There’s Thor (Chris Hemsworth) interacting with his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins).

The sadness is followed by a growing determination led by Cap to correct all that went wrong. We especially see this as Cap leads the remaining Avengers (Tony included) in what is assumed to be their Quantum Realm armor. The scene is one of hope and focus as it feels like something big is coming.

And their mantra: Whatever it takes. Watch below:

The Reel 360 team not been this amped to see a sequel since Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. We are joined by 18m+ views on YouTube since this morning.

Marvel did experience one rare faux-pas. On the poster released along with the trailer, Danai Gurira, who plays Black Panther’s Okoye, is featured but her name was left off of the poster.


We didn’t notice the gaffe at first, but Twitter sure did and reacted as well.

After the backlash, Marvel quickly corrected the omission and added her name.


With Captain Marvel predicted to cross the $700m global mark this weekend, it sure is a good time to be a Marvel fan.
