Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot and what looks like the official plot synopsis for Avengers: Endgame. It doesn’t contain any spoilers or surprises if you’ve seen Infinity War. Instead, it focuses on hyping up a dramatic conclusion to a story that’s been 22 films in the making.
The synopsis comes from Marvel’s official website, which people recently discovered was updated to include the following description for Endgame: “The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.”
The 22 films reference to the all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films released since 2008, beginning with Iron Man. Endgame is the 22nd film in the series.
Marvel has also shared a new TV spot for Endgame dubbed “Honor,” which you can watch below. While not a new trailer–don’t expect any new footage–it does remix what we’ve already seen to further build up some hype for the new movie.
Avengers: Infinity War ended in dramatic fashion, with the evil Thanos snapping away half of the galaxy’s population. Lots of people died, including superheroes that fans have come to know and love. In Endgame, the remaining members of the Avengers have apparently devised a plan to make things right–though it remains to be seen if the beloved fallen heroes will be resurrected by some means.
Many fans believe “the snap” may be undone in Endgame, given that many of the characters who perished have future movies in the pipeline. According to writer Christopher Markus, the deaths from Infinity War are “real,” at least in some fashion.
“It is a different movie than you think it is,” Markus said about Endgame. “We broke your heart. Now we’re going to blow your mind.”
Endgame hits theatres on April 26. It’ll be the second Marvel movie in as many months, following the box office smash Captain Marvel in March. Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson returns to play the character again in Endgame, and she can be seen in the newest Endgame trailer that’s embedded above.
