‘Avengers: Endgame’ Clip: The Team Plans to Rush Thanos
The first full Avengers: Endgame clip has arrived in time for the start of the movie’s press tour, showcasing our heroes plan an attack on Thanos after he successfully wiped out half of all life in the universe. And before you ask: no, it does not spoil the movie, although it does effectively spoil everything that came before it.
The clip was revealed via Good Morning America earlier today, showing a selection of the footage that was previously revealed to attendees of Disney’s investors meeting, CinemaCon, and a recent private event meant to hype the press up for the movie. In the clip, the team finds out that Thanos used the Infinity Stones on a distant planet shortly after becoming the most notorious mass-murderer in cinematic history, and devise a simple plan to take the Infinity Gauntlet from him, reverse the damage, and call it a day. You can watch it below:
There are some people I’ve seen online that are worried that this spoils the movie, to which I say this: this scene happens incredibly early on in the three-hour movie. Like, “less than twenty minutes into the film” early. The way that the music cuts off when Captain America uses profanity (“LANGUAGE!”) makes me think that it’s the last shot before the title appears. Furthermore, based on descriptions of the scene, it sounds like it’s making a pretty huge omission that should be apparent to anyone seeing it in the theater. So, to anyone worried: no, it’s not a spoiler. Not by a long shot.
The film’s official synopsis is as follows:
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.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26, 2019.
