John (Taloni) Taloni (JohnTaloni) | 2618 comments Yeah, like I needed any MORE reason to go to Avengers 4. Infinity Gauntlet - check. Thanos - check. Warlock would be the icing on the cake, but even without him there is soooooo much to love.

Trike | 4913 comments It’s definitely just a teaser. The only thing I could say with absolute certainty based on that trailer is that it looks like Clint has lost his family which has driven him become a dark avenger, adopting the persona of Arrow Ronin.

I’m curious as to how Scott got out of the Quantum Realm, but it looks like he’s driving Luis’ van, so maybe everyone in his life got dusted, too.

I hadn’t thought about Adam Warlock... maybe he saves Tony and Nebula. That would be pretty awesome. Although having Captain Marvel show up super early would work, too. I doubt she would be out in space since Fury paged her back on Earth, unless she just happened to pass them by as she was heading to Earth.

I do kinda hope Captain America sacrifices himself, raising his status to being the ultimate icon of the MCU. Even better would be if he gets sent off to another world where he has to survive, then dramatically returns 10 years from now in New Avengers 2. Maybe they can riff off of Castaway in Dimension Z where instead of Cap raising Arnim Zola’s son, he can raise the Hulk’s son Skaar on Sakaar. (In the Dimension Z storyline, the Green Skull is basically trying to do to Earth what Thanos did to the universe, so thematically it fits.)

I’m also hoping that the characters who died pre-snap stay dead, just to give the story some heft. Plus creating a clean break between MCU storylines. That means no more Loki, Vision, Heimdall or Gamora.

KevBayer (SporadicReviews) | 513 comments I've seen others comment they think the scenes with Tony recording a message to Pepper is *late* in the movie after they've succeeded, and that's why Nebula isn't with him and he has a true Iron Man helmet instead of a nano-created one.

Personally, I think the helmet could still be nano-created and he, you know, took it off. But I'm withholding judgment until I see the movie.

Nils Krebber | 108 comments Or, it's just the usual editing magic for trailers and teasers, where either the character is just off screen OR the scene simply is not in the movie like that.
The Ronin thing is obvious, even though I always asked myself even in the comics - you were a joke with bow and arrow between Gods, Supersoldiers and Aliens - so you downgrade to a sword?
Took me two viewings to understand that the scarecrow is Thanos Armour and not some other heroes remnants.

That would be cool, too. Endless possibilities, really. I mean, why not Moondragon and Pip?

Since this is all supposed to be time travel, which is pretty much guaranteed at this point, they get to have their cake and eat it, too. So they can kill off Tony only to go back in time and save him.

Notice in the corner of the video with Ant-Man at the front door it reads “1983 Archive.” Implying that Scott went through a time vortex in the Quantum Realm and tried to contact the Avengers 35 years earlier. So maybe he gets to meet younger Hank Pym (explaining how Pym knew to watch out for Scott in the original Ant-Man movie) as well as Howard Stark and Agent Carter. (Although none of them are on the cast list.)

Otherwise, as it is a teaser I wonder how much of that will really be in the actual movie."


Why not both? Phase 4 will need new blood. I'd love for it to take on more of a space/cosmic feel.


message 9: by Joseph (new)

Joseph | 1899 comments I want Jack of Hearts and Quasar. And Rom: Spaceknight, although I know that'll never happen because of licensing issues.

(I remember when Quasar had a monthly series that was basically Marvel Trademark/Copyright Retention Monthly -- he'd have all of these guest stars who were just on the verge of lapsing. Or at least that was my theory.)


message 10: by KevBayer (new)

KevBayer (SporadicReviews) | 513 comments I think Hasbro has the license to Rom now for films. They've had him in the IDW comics for awhile now.

As for Avengers Endgame, I'd be happy to just see the movie at this point! : ) Enough with the teases and waiting. Want! Want now!

Rik | 777 comments Cap is wearing his Winter Soldier era costume and has the haircut to match. Implies to me that some of the rumors of them visiting past films via time travel to steal the infinity stones is true which is why he had look like he used to look so he could impersonate himself.

I kind of like the idea that the past scenes are created using BARF, rather than actual time travel, and all the time travel theories have been seeded to throw us off.

That said, I still think it’s a time travel movie.

Has anyone talked to Mark Ruffalo lately? He’s probably accidentally spilled the entire plot at this point.

I think Disney hired Don Cheadle to follow him at all times, ready to smack him on the back of his head.
