The new trailer doesn’t reveal much about the plot of the movie, but it teases the heroes facing off against Thanos once again. It also highlights the team uniting and vowing to avenge those that Thanos killed in Infinity War. It also shows Tony Stark back from space and meeting Captain America for the first time since their fight in Civil War.
In addition to the new trailer, three new posters were released..
Early rumors claim that Endgame might end up taking three hours, something that the Russoshave a very specific justification for.
“We’re still looking at a similar time [approximately three hours].” Joe Russo revealed in a recent interview. “This one’s been very specific in its run time. It really hasn’t changed since we executed the first cut of the film. Even though we’ve shot a lot of footage between now and then, we’ve swapped things out and the water keeps rising to the same level because the story’s so dense. We have so many characters that we’re working with again that require that kind of run time.”
“My brother [Anthony Russo] and I are really committed to emotional stakes, and emotion requires story real estate.” Russo continued. “When you have a sprawling plot with a lot of characters and emotional stakes, it requires time to breathe emotionally. On the scale, you’re just going to wind up at a certain run time. We’ve been really hard on the film. We don’t like excessive run times; it’s just very difficult wrapping up 10 years of storytelling.”
Avengers Endgame is coming to theatres April 26.
