We’re just a few days out from Avengers: Endgame and with its arrival comes the feeling like we’re at the end of a distinct era in blockbuster filmmaking.
These movies began with Iron Man all the way back in 2008, and Marvel Studios is channeling that decade-plus legacy in their final Endgame trailer. The spot is less a tease of what’s to come than a reminder of where we’ve been, with a quick retrospective on all 22 movies leading up to the upcoming final showdown between the surviving Avengers and Thanos.
Captain America. Black Widow. Thor. Black Panther. Doctor Strange. Groot. Captain Marvel. Drax. All our old pals are here gearing up for one final crack at avenging the world. It’s enough to make us get just a teensy-tiny bit emotional.
We’ll arrive at the endgame April 26.
