There’s just three short weeks before makes its hotly anticipated premiere, and Marvel is stoking the fires of anticipation with one last teaser, featuring our first glimpse of arch-villain Thanos, who seems more than ready for a rematch.
The first trailer for dropped in December, giving us a glimpse of the Avengers who survived the Snappening, in which Thanos wiped out half of all living beings in the universe with a snap of his fingers, including many of our beloved superheroes.
That’s about all they could show us without giving too much away, although we did get a scene with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man showing up, having escaped the quantum realm where he was presumably trapped at the end of .
A second trailer aired during the Super Bowl, using footage from just the first 20 minutes of . We saw the fallen/dusted in rapid succession, in striking black-and-white hues with red highlights. But we also see them finally starting to regroup. Last month, Marvel dropped yet another trailer, taking us back to the origins of the remaining Avengers and introducing Brie Larsen’s Carole Danvers (aka, Captain Marvel) into the mix for the first time.
In this latest trailer, we get several heartfelt reunions: Tony Stark and his long-suffering fiancée, Pepper Potts; Black Widow and Hawkeye; and a mending of fences between Tony and Steve Rogers as they shake hands on their mutual renewed trust in each other. The team is formulating some kind of a plan, although the specifics are vague (because spoilers). “If we do this, we’d be going in short-handed,” Bruce Banner/The Hulk cautions. “Yeah, you mean because he killed all our friends?” War Machine retorts, stating the obvious.
Then Captain Marvel shows up with her spaceship and whisks everyone off to space, and they find themselves once again facing Thanos. “You could not live with your own failure,” he taunts. “And where did that bring you? Back to me.” Perhaps they’ll fail again. There’s certainly a chance some of our heroes won’t survive this installment in the franchise. But as Tony says, “We’re the Avengers. We have to finish this.”
