Coming Soon: Avengers Endgame

Becky Aurit

My name is Becky, and I have a confession to make. I haven't seen "Captain Marvel" yet. I know, it is surprising. My intentions were good, but life (and by life, I mean weather) got in my way. The husband and I had tickets, and plans to see the movie with friends, but then we were blessed by a huge blizzard that was followed by freezing rain. Our friends' sitter cancelled, and the roads in my city were too messy to drive. So here I am, behind the curve, and not quite understanding all the cat jokes. None the less, I am sticking with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and decided to watch the trailer for "Avengers: Endgame" this week.

"Avengers: Endgame" takes place at some point after the conclusion of "Avengers: Infinity War." The timeline between the two movies is a bit unclear, based on the trailer. Thor still has short hair, but it has been long enough for Hawkeye and Black Widow to start dating, apparently. Hawkeye is back, by the way, if you are one of the five people who missed him in "Avengers: Infinity War."

In order to keep things spoiler free, the preview for "Avengers: Endgame" doesn't give away much in terms of plot points. It opens with Tony Stark floating in space, after he was left alone because of Thanos's destruction. The rest of the trailer consists of clips of our remaining heroes. In addition to Tony, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Thor, we see Hulk, Captain America, and Rocket Raccoon. Antman is introduced briefly, and we get a decent shot of Mr. Ant using a pencil to catapult himself in an action scene.

Towards the end of the trailer, we see a shot of all of the living Avengers wearing matching space suits. It is unclear if they are heading into space to save Iron Man, or to battle Thanos, or both. Either way, I am glad that they took time to make sure their space suits matched, just in case they stop for a team photo during this crisis.

The final bit in the trailer for "Avengers: Endgame" involves the introduction of Captain Marvel. Initially Thor summons his hammer-replacement when she appears, but after that he declares that he likes the team's new visitor. It's a cute bit, and I am always onboard for funny Thor.

"Avengers: Endgame" is in theaters the weekend of April 26-28. Despite my failure to see "Captain Marvel," I do plan to catch the latest Avengers opening weekend, though you never know what the weather will do in Minnesota.
