The gang's back together with new member in Avengers: End Game trailer

Ars Technica

"It all seems like a thousand years ago": Our heroes reflect on their origins in third trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: End Game. Captain Marvel is still burning up the box office, saving Hollywood from a lackluster first quarter of 2019.

Might she do the same for the embattled Avengers, reeling from their staggering loss? It sure looks that way, based on the latest trailer for Marvel's Avengers: End Game. And since it would take several days at this point to re-watch all the earlier films in the franchise, we also get to revisit the origins of our surviving Avengers in black-and-white footage from those movies. (Some spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and prior MCU films in this series below.

) For the two people on the planet who don't know this yet, in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (an intergalactic supervillain from Titan) successfully collected all six Infinity Stones: the Power Stone, the Space Stone, the Time Stone, the Reality Stone, the Soul Stone, and the Mind Stone. Once collected and placed in the Infinity Gauntlet, they gave Thanos the power to wipe out half of all living beings in the universe. And despite the valiant collective efforts of pretty much every superhero in the Marvel cinematic universe, Thanos succeeds.

With a single snap of his fingers, half of the universe dissolves into dust, including many of our beloved superheroes. The first trailer for End Game dropped in December, giving us just a tantalizing glimpse of the Avengers who survived the Snappening. That's about all they could show us without giving too much away, although we did get a scene with Paul Rudd's Scott Lang/Ant-Man showing up, having escaped the quantum realm where he was presumably trapped at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Blast from the past.
