Avengers 4 prom­ises ‘fight of our lives’

Ottawa Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — Mark Daniell

The brand new trailer for the fourth Avengers film is here and we fi­nally have the full ti­tle for next sum­mer’s su­per­hero epic — Avengers: Endgame.

The film picks up af­ter the events of Avengers: In­fin­ity War and finds our re­main­ing he­roes liv­ing in a world where half the uni­verse has been killed by the cos­mic ma­niac Thanos (Josh Brolin).

Speak­ing to the Sun last year, Marvel Stu­dios boss Kevin Feige said that the fourth Avengers film will bring to a close the cur­rent it­er­a­tion of the Marvel Cine­matic Uni­verse.

“This orig­i­nal 22-movie arc ends with the un­ti­tled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spi­der-Man that usher us into the af­ter­math and how things pro­ceed from there,” he said.

A vague syn­op­sis for Endgame teases: “Our beloved he­roes will truly un­der­stand how frag­ile this re­al­ity is and the sac­ri­fices that must be made to up­hold it.”

In the trailer we see Robert Downey’s Iron Man adrift in space record­ing a mes­sage to his beloved Pep­per Potts.

“If you find this record­ing, don’t feel bad about this. Part of the jour­ney is the end,” he says.

But our he­roes — those still stand­ing — won’t go down with­out a fight. And they have a plan.

“This is the fight of our lives,” Chris Evans” Cap­tain Amer­ica says.

We get glimpses of Black Widow (Scar­lett Jo­hans­son) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as two he­roes who didn’t ap­pear in In­fin­ity War, Hawk­eye (Jeremy Ren­ner) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).

In an in­ter­view ear­lier this year, Feige told the Sun that the MCU is a world with­out end, but “sto­ry­lines can come to an end” and the changes Endgame will bring are go­ing to be fi­nite.

“The best sto­ries do come to an end,” he said.

Avengers: Endgame opens April 26, 2019.
