A new trailer for Avengers: Endgame made its way during Super Bowl LIII.
The new look at Avengers: Endgame is similar with the marketing plan seen for Infinity War, the MCU film that precedes Endgame in terms of MCU storyline. During Super Bowl LII a year ago, Marvel revealed the second look at Infinity War. Avengers: Endgame will be a direct sequel to Infinity War, picking up where the film left us.
While not much is know about the details of the upcoming Avengers sequel, the directors of the film Anthony Russo and Joe Russo talked about their approach to the biggest event in Marvel’s history.
WHAT HAPPENS IN AVENGERS: ENDGAME?
“You can’t chase bigger because you get yourself into trouble,” Joe Russo told Comicbook.com of Avengers: Endgame. “What you can chase is story telling. So, everything for us is based on the story. Obviously, this is larger in scale than Civil War because we have more than double the number of characters in it, and it’s Thanos, and it’s cosmic. The stakes are the universe. You can’t get much bigger than that.”
While the Russos knew all along that Infinity War will lead into Endgame, their desire to chase story was so essential that they wanted to tell a complete story with the first half. “It was important for us. Because we wanted, the experience we wanted to have at the end of this story was the sense of emotional completion. In terms of what the narrative was in the film,” Anthony Russo said. “And hopefully they’ll have that similar feeling. It’s serialized story-telling. The mission was to not make one long movie and get out the scissors and cut it in half. Because that’s never been the most fulfilling cinematic expression. So for us, the commitment was to try and put a beginning, middle, and end to this, and a beginning, middle, and end to that.”
Avengers: Endgame hits release date is on April 26.
