On May 23, the first provisional synopsis of “Avengers: Endgame” was shared:
“The culmination of 22 interconnected films. The fourth installment of the saga ‘Avengers’ will attract the public to witness the crucial moment of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will really understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to maintain it. ”
After there has not been another official synopsis of the film, although there are several supposed descriptions like the one that Wikipedia subscribes:
“After being defeated by Thanos the last time and that he executed his evil plan to eliminate half of the universe, the remaining Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, among other superheroes, will look for ways to face the evil Titan again and to remedy the damage caused by the clicking of the Infinity Gauntlet, this being the great final battle that will decide the fate and life of the entire universe. ”
TRAILER OF “AVENGERS: ENDGAME”
On February 4, during Super Bowl 2019, Marvel Studios previewed more of the movie through a 30-second spot.
After much waiting and rumors, Marvel Studios shared on Friday December 7 the first official trailer of “Avengers: Endgame”, where it is seen a lot, a lot, but at the same time, very little for what the fans expected.
In the preview, which appeared on Friday in the early hours, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) records a farewell message to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) as he roams aimlessly through the cosmos, alone.
“If you find this recording, do not feel bad. A part of the trip is the end. Let it be clear that drifting through space without the slightest chance of rescue is more fun than it seems. The food and water ran out 4 days ago. The oxygen will end tomorrow and when I fall asleep I will dream of you, always with you “, is the message left by the billionaire.
The last time he was seen, Tony Stark had lost all his allies, including Peter Parker (Tom Holland), and had been stranded on Titan, the planet of Thanos, with the only Nebula company (Karen Gillan). Today he is alone in a spaceship.
After Tony’s farewell, Thanos is seen on an indeterminate planet, still wearing the gauntlet, while the surviving Avengers lament. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) walks away. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) tries to find answers and laments while he sees the faces of the disappeared. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), now without a beard, cries. But then it’s time to get to work.
The ‘Cap’ and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) have a plan and the same happens in the first place by looking for Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), now become Ronin, probably after losing his family. What is the plan exactly? That is not known yet. It is only known that Captain America trusts his last chance.
At the end of the trailer, Steve, wearing his old Captain America costume, and Natasha are surprised at his base by Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), whom they had reported missing. Somehow, Ant-Man managed to escape from the quantum world, the same one he was exploring at the end of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” (2018) when Thanos snapped his fingers.
After the release of the first trailer, actor Chris Evans said the following: “This is special. They have no idea. ”
In the spot you can see something else about the plot. You can see the mourning that ravages the world by the disappearance of half the population. It can be dark. Sadness. But also hope because Steve Rogers is not willing to give up or forget his loved ones.
The preview features the Avengers who survived the snap, including Tony Stark, who with the help of Nebula tries to return to Earth. Apparently, it would not die of hunger in space as suggested by the first trailer of the tape.
OFFICIAL TITLE: “AVENGERS: ENDGAME”
When he released the first trailer of “Avengers 4”, Marvel Studios shared the official title of the film: “Avengers: Endgame”, name that confirms one of the first theories woven on this topic of the film.
In the trailer, after the ‘Cap’ and Black Widows talk about their plan to stop Thanos, the logo and the name of the film emerge, with the classic symbol of the Avengers.
Even before the premiere of “Avengers Infinity War” there were rumors about the possible title of “Avengers 4”. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo said at the time that there would not be a title for the film until well after the premiere of “Infinity War” and they did not lie. Knowing this important fact was made to wait and the theories emerged in response, including the one that finally was true.
According to Screen Rant, the title should be “Avengers: Endgame” by a phrase released by Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) before disappearing as a result of the victory of Thanos.
Before facing Thanos on Titan, Strange explores millions of scenarios for war and says to his colleagues, of all possible timelines, only beat in one to the ‘crazy Titan’. In addition, his expression suggests that this unique scenario is not very happy, something half the world understands when the Supreme Sorcerer delivers the Time Stone to the enemy to save his life Iron Man, even knowing that this would mean the end of everything.
Said and done, with the six Stones of Infinity in his possession, Thanos simply snaps his fingers at the end of “Infinity War” and half a universe disappears, including Strange, but before he dies, the Doctor says that “there was no other way” . That is, to win the war it was necessary for Thanos to get all the stones. “Now we are at the end of the game,” adds Strange before disappearing before Tony Stark.
“We have a name for this, we’re just not announcing it. And I think we came to that name from the beginning of the development process. Talk about the heart of the story, “said Anthony Russo when there was no official title yet

THEORIES OF “AVENGERS: ENDGAME”
“Avengers 4” must find a way to revive the characters killed by Thanos and then stop the villain to save the entire universe. For this purpose, five ways of returning to life the fallen by the ‘snap’ of the titan have been outlined:
1. Time Stone
The Time Stone could be the solution. Just as Thanos used it to return the time necessary to take the Mind Stone (Paul Bettany), the Avengers could use it to undo everything the ‘Crazy Titan’ did.
However, going back in time would not solve the real problem, since, while everyone would revive, Thanos would continue with his plan and the Avengers could not stop it.
2. Soul Stone
“Avengers: Infinity War” showed Thanos in a desolate world where a young Gamora was waiting for him and for many, that place could be the world of Soul Stone the Soulworld, which according to the Marvel comics houses all the souls that the Soul Stone takes. Then, all those who died by Thanos’ crack are there with Gamora. What does it take to get them out?
According to the comics there is no way to remove anyone from the Soul Stone, only some characters can enter and leave the world at will, but the MCU could invent an entry to Soulworld, perhaps with a sacrifice in between.
For many fans, the character of Captain Marvel would come into play here, as it will be the most important character in the film, considered until now the most powerful superheroine of the entire Marvel Studios Universe (MCU).
3. Quantum Realm
Ant-Man did not appear in “Avengers: Infinity War”, but in his second film, which premiered in July 2018, Quantum Realm was talked about and maybe, this microverse will be the key to recover those killed by Thanos.
Quantum Realm or Microverse (in the comic) is an alternative dimension that can be entered by magical means or by means of Pym particles. If you shrink beyond a subatomic level using the particles, you can enter the realm as Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Scott Lang. In fact, when Thanos evaporates halfway through the universe, Scott becomes trapped in this dimension and the means he uses to escape would be the key to defeating Thanos. After the appearance of the first trailer of “Avengers: Endgame”, Scott is already on Earth, but how did he escape? Also, in what time is it? Undoubtedly, Ant-Man will be a key piece to save the universe.
4. Adam Warlock
Adam Warlock has not appeared in the MCU, but his creation was mentioned in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”. In the comics, the artificial human could manage the power of the Soul Stone and inherited it after Thanos lost possession of the Infinity Gauntlet. If Marvel decides to include him, Warlock could know how to revive the superheroes.
While the Russo brothers have said that Adam Warlock will not appear in the movie, they may be giving false leads.
5. Reality Stone
The Reality Stone has the power to alter reality and the laws of logic. In the comics, the Stone could be used to resurrect the dead, so the Avengers could find a way to exercise their power.
1. One last trick by Doctor Strange
A follower based his theory on Strange’s death and visions. “If we go back to Doctor Strange’s solo movie, we realize that the Elder could not see the future beyond her death. However, when Strange reviewed all the possibilities he knew there was one in which they would win. How could he have seen them win if he died a few minutes later? (…) They are not dead, but they are in another place, in an alternative reality, in a parallel universe “.
Then, by visiting all possible futures and seeing that only one won, Strange’s decisions can be guided by the only way to beat Thanos.
2. Travel in time
Some images of the filming of “Avengers 4” showed Captain America, Tony Stark, Hulk and Ant-Man / Scott Lang in what looks like the scene of the battle of New York. Therefore, a fan shared a theory following those photos. “I have not thought about all the details, but I think ‘Avengers 4’ will take place (at least partially) in 2012, when the first invasion of New York took place.”
“My theory is that the team returns to the past, to that battle, because they know that it is the moment in which Thanos decided to destroy them. So, instead of having only Iron Man flying into the portal, they find a way to go around and face Thanos before he is ready for it. (…) They risk everything to be able to save the lives of the heroes who will follow in their footsteps. While traveling to the portal, they meet Thanos and destroy him before he takes the Gauntlet. I do not think the original team will survive in Avengers 4 and, to be honest, I’m pretty sure Tony and Steve will die together. ”
3. Loki is alive
Some fans believe that the ‘God of the deceived’ is not dead and that he has a plan in hand. “Loki says: ‘brother, I promise the sun will shine again on us’ (…) I think Loki subtly tries to say that he has an ace up his sleeve and that he can help them out alive. […] Loki disappears from the scene for several minutes in which we do not know what he was doing and then reappears super cock and arrogant, which contrasts enough with how terrified he had shown a few minutes before. This may suggest that you are using an illusion or something similar. He emphasizes that he is the ‘God of Deception’, perhaps giving Thor a clue that he is about to do some of his tricks or to indicate to the audience that nothing is what it seems to be. ”
Also, “Loki did not return to his Jotun form once he died. And this seems strange since his form of Aesir is an illusion, so he should have disappeared when he died. In addition, Loki mentions several times that he is ‘the legitimate King of Jotunheim’ and not Asgard, which may be an attempt to get the attention of the audience to go to this fact. […] If the Russo brothers had wanted Loki’s death to be credible, they would have made Loki use his illusions and Thanos had to discern where Loki was and then kill him. The fact that none of Loki’s powers showed up, seems to indicate that he may have faked his death. And finally, I refuse to think that Thor’s last words to his brother were: ‘You really are the worst, brother.’ ”
