After months of agonizing over the fate of Spider-Man, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Bucky Barnes, and, well, half the Earth’s population, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally have some idea of what’s next. The Avengers: Endgame trailer is finally here, and while it doesn’t give much in terms of answers, it can at least give us all hope that there is still a future for some of the MCU and the Avengers themselves.
MCU fans will remember that Avengers: Infinity War ended with Thanos decimating half of Earth’s population, and, one would assume, the populations of all planets in the galaxy. Having collected all six Infinity Stones, Thanos snapped his fingers, and just like that, Star-Lord, Drax, Mantis, Falcon, Dr. Strange, and Nick Fury himself disintegrated into dust. The Wasp and Dr. Pym were later revealed to have also disappeared, leaving a sub-atomic Ant-Man in a bit of a pickle at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp.
For those keeping track, that means that the only Avengers left to fight Thanos and (hopefully) restore the lives that were taken are Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Bruce Banner (who is having trouble reaching his Hulk alter-ego), Hawkeye (we think), Thor, Ant-Man, Okoye, Nebula, Rocket, War Machine, and M’Baku. The film didn’t provide answers regarding the fates of Shuri, Pepper Potts, Agent 13, Wong, W’Kabi, or Agent Ross. But, based on the ending of Infinity War, the surviving Avengers could be getting a helping hand from none other than Captain Marvel.
