My mom was genuinely shocked and horrified when Thanos appeared to kill Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War. My dad was disturbed by the film’s subsequent bleak ending. It was a movie cliffhanger to rival Empire Strikes Back, and now the concluding chapter—10 years of movies later—is in sight with the release of Avengers 4‘s trailer Friday morning.
By the way, it’s called Avengers: Endgame, like the Taylor Swift song, and directors the Russo brothers tweeted the trailer at 6:59am CT. I’ll get out of the way here and we can watch it together.
For those who have been here since the beginning.
For those who have joined along the way.
For the best fans in the Universe.
This trailer is for you…
With much love and gratitude for your patience,

Wow, Hawkeye’s back—and his disapproving scowl seems stern AF.
Iron Man’s floating off into space. Captain America is a measured statesman as always. Thor looks like he’s in the locker room, losing at halftime. And look, it’s already an Ariana Grande meme:
