The Avengers took a punch, and now they’re regrouping. Captain America, Iron Man (with Nebula), Thor, Rocket, Black Widow, the Hulk, Ant-Man, and the rest of the living Avengers are training, plotting, and coming together with a plan.
After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos' actions and restore order to the universe.
Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe RussoIn the trailer, what remains of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are dealing with the aftermath of Thanos’s finger snap at the end of Infinity War that wiped out half of all life in the universe. The world (an abandoned Citi Field is shown) is decimated and gloomy. Everyone has lost friends and family.

Marvel released the biggest tease yet for its biggest movie of the year, during the biggest football game of the year. During Super Bowl 53, Marvel unleashed the second trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War and the culmination of more than a decade of Marvel superhero movies.
Just what exactly that plan is … we’ll have to find out when the movie comes out on April 26.
Endgame’s first trailer dropped in December, and the second one is inevitably similar due to the storytelling consequences of revealing too much. Because Infinity War ended with a cliffhanger built around several famous Marvel characters evaporating into dust, Marvel can only feature its non-dusted heroes in Endgame’s marketing; otherwise, it risks spoiling the movie with even the smallest hints.
Directed by the Russo brothers, Avengers: Endgame will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come back together (and back from the dust) to fight Thanos once again and, as the movie’s title implies, finish the story that began in Infinity War and reveal the fates of the Avengers. The film is poised to cap off the first phase of Marvel’s interlocking superhero movies, and portends to be the end for some of Marvel’s flagship actors, including Chris Evans.
Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on April 26.
