So, I just watched the latest trailer for Avengers: Endgame. Here are a few of my initial thoughts:
First off, people always make jokes about how, while Thor’s a God and Captain America is basically 100 years old but still looks like Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner pretty much only brings a bow and arrow to the fight. But you know what? I was really happy to see Renner return, even if he does have a questionable haircut. And I was even more happy to see that, after being underused in the previous Avengers film, it looks like Scarlett Johannson has got a decent role.
Plus, for at least some of the film, Scarlett’s a redhead again!
I loved the trailer’s use of black-and-white. It added a sense of tragic grandeur to the whole thing.
I’m still traumatized by the end of the Infinity Wars. Yeah, I know that everyone will probably be resurrected and that there’s no way they’d ever kill off Spider-Man for real but seriously, that was hella depressing! “Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good….” AGCK!
Captain Marvel shows up at the end and gets Thor’s seal of approval. One wonder if they waited to see this weekend’s box office numbers before deciding to include that scene at the end.
Speaking of which — where’s my review of Captain Marvel? I saw it earlier this week. I’ll be posting it soon.
It’s hard not to notice that Thanos wasn’t in this trailer. Of course, we did see him in the previous teaser.
Finally, I love the fact that Avengers: Endgame and Degrassi share the same tag line. “Whatever it takes!”
Here’s the latest trailer for Avengers: Endgame!
