So… that happened. That was what I thought when I finished watching the Avengers: Endgame trailer. Sure, all trailers are meant to get you excited for the movie. But this trailer took it to another level.

The suspense that was left from Avengers: Infinity War was honed in when Marvel decided to create a pre-holiday thriller of a preview, especially one that casual to die-hard fans speculate about.

A gloomy beginning has Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) stuck in space on an empty space ship hopeless, trying to return to Earth after a gut-wrenching battle with Thanos (Josh Brolin). Trying to cling on to what supplies he still had, he sends a message to hopefully back to Earth telling Pepper Potts, his wife, what happened on the distant planet Titan.

The preview then cuts to a Thanos-less battle suit hanging up like a scarecrow in a field. Thanos’s unnaturally large, purple hand brushes up against some plants. Showing that Thanos did his job, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) gives a grimm recap of what he did. All the while, headshots of Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) slide across the screen showing who was lost.

This leaves who’s left of our heroes in complete disarray, contemplating their strategy. Captain America (Chris Evans) mentions how the heroes have lost family, with a hooded Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) making an appearance in what looks like a city setting. This gave me a lot of speculative thoughts because Hawkeye hadn’t made an appearance since Captain America: Civil War.

From the trailer’s beginning, the movie catches your attention. Iron Man is in an unusual environment. All of the characters don’t know what to do with themselves. They have to figure out a game plan for defeating Thanos, and bring back their fallen warriors and friends.

The preview concludes with an epic appearance from the new Avengers: Endgame logo, as well as a surprising appearance from Ant-Man, who was lost in the “Quantum Realm” at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp. He’s seen by a security camera at the entrance of the updated Avengers facility.

We’ll have to wait for this movie to come out until April, but in the meantime, let the Marvel speculations begin.
