Previewed to premiere in theaters on April 26, the new advance confirmed that Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) will appear in the film and will fight Thanos with the Avengers.

The official synopsis of Avengers: Endgame is the next:

"After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the crazy titan, Thanos. With the help of the remaining allies, the Avengers must meet once again to undo Thanos's actions and re-establish order in the universe once and for all, no matter what the consequences may be. "

The duration of the event has not yet been confirmed Avengers: Endgame, but all the reports suggest that it could be close to three hours, according to one of the directors of the film, Joe Russo. When there is new information, we will update this note.

Along with the new advance also Disney unveiled the official poster of the film.

This poster includes the character of Captain Marvel among the protagonists of Avengers: Endgame, so the first poster of the film, shared in December by the directors of the film, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, avoided revealing faces of the cast.

Trailers of the movie

The second trailer of the film confirmed that the surviving Avengers will wear a spacesuit. Are they to travel to the microscopic Quantum Kingdom seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) or to move to the planet of Thanos? However, the great revelation of the advance was the appearance of Captain Marvel.

On December 7, Marvel Studios announced the first trailer of Avengers: Endgame, which, being the first look at the movie, revealed nothing about how the surviving superheroes of Avengers: Infinity War They will beat Thanos.

At CNET in Spanish we analyze the surprises and revelations of the first trailer of the film, like the meaning of the title, the new identity of Hawkeye – now he calls himself Ronin – and the importance of the appearance of Ant-Man at the end of the advance.

Then, on February 3, Disney launched a Special advance in Super Bowl 2019, of short duration but that allowed to see how the superheroes prepared to face Thanos, who does not appear in the trailer.

Rumors and filtered information

Marvel Studios warned in January that all the trailers of Avengers: Endgame they will only show scenes of the first 15 minutes of the movie. This in order not to reveal spoilers Of the plot.

So the few revelations of the film have been obtained from unofficial sources, such as the package of popcorn that showed the new costumes of the characters. Or some Lego sets of Avengers: Endgame that revealed possible scenes from the movie, for example.

On October 26, the Web page The Wrap He published that actress Katherine Langford joined the cast of Avengers 4. Langford became famous for her starring role in the first two seasons of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and, as he knew The Wrap, the actress already filmed her scenes, made with great secrecy so as not to reveal who she plays or her importance in the plot.

In addition, an image of actress Gwyneth Paltrow was leaked in what appears to be an Iron Man armor, albeit in a different color. The website ComicBook.com suggests that it could be one of the Iron Man rescue armors that Tony Stark maintains at the Stark Industries headquarters. It makes sense that if Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is in trouble, Pepper Potts (Paltrow) decides to help him by wearing one of the superhero's rescue armor.

The directors of Avengers: Endgame, Joe and Anthony Russo, have kept the shoot in an aura of mystery and, in fact, have published on social networks two enigmatic images that have awakened debates among fans. On September 19, the Russo brothers announced a black and white photography on Twitter and Instagram accompanied by the phrase "Look Hard" (look carefully). Many speculated that the image kept the key to the possible title of the film.

Subsequently, on October 13, the Russo brothers announced that the shooting had concluded through an image blurred, without apparent explanation. Fans on the Internet also flooded the Internet with all sorts of theories about what the directors had wanted to say.

The truth is that for now it is only taken for granted that Thanos will return in the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, because nobody else is one hundred percent guaranteed that he will return. So let's review what we already know what happened before Avengers: Endgame.

The story before 'Avengers: Endgame'

In his quest to restore the balance of the universe, Thanos acquired the Gems of Infinity and made half of the population of the universe disappear, just as he promised he would. Many of Marvel's main heroes were among those inhabitants who they became mountains of dust that the wind dissolved.

So Avengers: Endgame It faces a challenge: not all those Marvel heroes that are rampaging at the box office will be out of new movies. But some of them will probably bite the dust for dramatic reasons (and because some actors have publicly expressed his desire to move on to other projects). We will have to wait to find out who withdraws from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but for now we have to stick to those we know.

We will update this story as we have news.

When it premieres?

Avengers: Endgame is scheduled to premiere on April 26, 2019 in the United States.

The film was filmed after Infinity War, with a shoot that began in August of 2017 and from which their main scenes finished filming in January 2018 (with the filming of reshoots finished on October 13). Filming took place in the Atlanta area, according to the Scottish newspaper The Daily Record, more scenes will be filmed in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2018.

The film is the fourth in a series, so if you want to catch up with the three previous installments of the Avengers, you should see The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018). You already did? There are many other Marvel movies to watch to learn the origin stories of each superhero. Here you can read Our suggested order To see them.

What we know about the plot

Well, Thanos will return; the credits of the film promised. He looked very satisfied with the balance he imposed on the universe, while he sat down to rest in his hut nipa (The scene was filmed on the terraces of rice fields in Banaue, Philippines), so it seems likely that the surviving Avengers will have to travel there to fight with him.

Some think that we should look at the version of the story in the comics to know how it will be its outcome, but there are always deviations between comics and movies, so you should not expect an exact copy of the plot. However, if the events take that well-known course, expect an important role for Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Remember, Strange made a strange decision in Infinity War, delivering the Gem of Time that he swore to defend. Did he do it because it was necessary to do it on the stage where he saw our heroes winning? Dr. Strange surely has a complete idea of ​​what will happen.

Did you stay in your chair after it culminated Infinity War to see the post-credit scene? Here we explain what it means but everything seems to indicate that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) successfully sent a message to Captain Marvel, which is inferred by the symbol that appears on the screen of the pager (pager) of Fury. Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel in a film to be released in March 2019, and since its release occurs two months before Avengers: Endgame, it is expected that this film fixes the foundations of some essential elements of history.

Who can remain dead?

This is a list of those who disappeared when Thanos eliminated half of the population:

  • Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan)
  • Drax (Dave Bautista)
  • Groot (Vin Diesel)
  • Mantis (Pom Klementieff)
  • Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)
  • Spider-Man (Tom Holland)
  • Peter Quill (Chris Pratt)
  • Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch)
  • Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman)
  • Falcon (Anthony Mackie)

Those who were left to fight one more day (what we know, as we did not see these heroes disappear) are:

  • Captain America (Chris Evans)
  • Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)
  • Thor (Chris Hemsworth)
  • Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)
  • M'Baku (Winston Duke)
  • Okoye (Danai Gurira)
  • Rocket (Bradley Cooper)
  • War Machine (Don Cheadle)
  • Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)
  • Nebula (Karen Gillan)

It is likely that some of the heroes who died will return, at least for a time. Marvel will not keep them dead for long and end a source of income: there is a lot of money to lose.

We are sure that some will return: Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy they have additional films planned, so T'Challa and Star-Lord will not go very far, although not all of Wakanda's subjects and Guardians will be well spared in the process.

The future may not look auspicious for the three great heroes of the Marvel Universe: Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Chris Evans has said that will hang the shield after Avengers 4, and Downey and Hemsworth have suggested the same. But we will not know until it's confirmed, and, after all, Marvel is famous for relaunching characters who have died, frozen or retired.

In fact, Joe Russo, co-director of Avengers: Endgame, assured on December 2 that Chris Evans will be Captain America again Well, it's not over with the character.

And, as some fanatics know Infinity War, some characters died – or seem to be dead – before Thanos snapped his fingers. Heimdall (Idris Elba), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Vision (Paul Bettany) belong to a different category of deceased than the others, although, it is fair to admit, that death is never in the kingdom forever Marvel

And the whereabouts of some characters is a mystery. The first trailer of Avengers: Endgame He confirmed that Shuri (Letitia Wright) died but we know nothing of M'Baku (Winston Duke) and Wong (Benedict Wong). By the final sequence of Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) we are aware of the fate of The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). And the first trailer of Avengers: Endgame revealed that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) will make an appearance in the sequel.

Fanatics theories

With a gap of one year between both films, fans have plenty of time to think about what will happen in Avengers 4. Here are some ideas, some more serious than others:

Meet the cast (almost certainly)

Since in Marvel death is never final, these are the characters that you should be able to see in the next movie.

  • Chris Evans

  • Benedict Cumberbatch
