Let's start our weekend with a little teaser because THE NEW AVENGERS TRAILER IS NOW AVAILABLE AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW. Yes, I said that in all caps on purpose. You better believe it.
If you would have told me a couple of years ago that I would be one thousand percent wrapped up in the “OMG what's next” of Marvel Comic Book characters, I would have laughed and laughed and laughed. I came late to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but I got here (thank you, Thor) and like many of you, I sat in a theater this past April with my mouth hanging open when a certain purple dude snapped his fingers and made half of humanity disappear. And, like many of you, I sat in another theater this past July and with my mouth hanging open as all three Van Dyne's disappear while Scott Lang is stuck in the Quantum Realm. Obviously if you've read this far, you know I am now a huge MCU geek and if anything I've written confuses you, go watch the MCU in its entirety and come on back. You have some time to catch up before Captain Marvel. Soooo…for the past several months I've been not-so-patiently waiting for Marvel to reveal more.
And, they have. But only a little.
As one would expect, it brings more questions than it answers. I'm not sure if we all needed to get more pumped up about the yet-to-be-released MCU movies or if that's even possible but this teaser trailer definitely does that for me. The scenes between Black Widow and Steve Rogers assure us that the Avengers that didn't turn to dust still have the fight in them. The best thing about this trailer, if that's even possible to identify, is that we see Scott Lang DID manage to escape from the Quantum Realm, which would suggest Luis and his friends survived Thanos' snap. At least that's what I hope.
I got all the feels on this one. The “part of the journey is the end” just completely gut punched me this morning…I literally had just taken my first sip of coffee when I started watching and I was so not ready for all these emotions so early in the day. This, coupled with the recent passing of the great Stan Lee has started my Friday out on more of an emotional note than I bargained for.
We might not know much about Avengers End Game but we do know that Marvel will continue to tease us until the April 2019 release. April 26th, to be exact. Not that I'm marking my calendar or anything. Ahem.
