Now that Avengers 4 has only its post-production to deal with, with principal photography having wrapped up, leaks and rumors about the movie are dropping at a rapid pace. The latest, and unarguably an inevitable one, is about the movie’s trailer. Sources on the insider are claiming to have seen rough cuts of the trailer and have posted their descriptions on Reddit.
For now, two of these have caught on within the community and we have an inkling that one of these could be true. The said description paints a picture of the immediate aftermath of Thanos’ snap and how the leftover Avengers gather themselves to undo the damage caused by the Mad Titan. Stark and Nebula are stranded on Titan and use Peter Quill’s ship to get themselves off the planet. Upon arriving home, Stark apparently breaks the news of Peter’s departure to Aunt May and promises to protect and avenge the earth by joining S.H.I.E.L.D. (as director?).
Meanwhile, Thor gets everyone ready to form an army to combat Thanos. That includes (presumably) Rocket, Black Widow, Hawkeye (who’s again absent from the trailer description), and Captain Marvel, who charges ahead towards something, to combat Thanos perhaps. The trailer footage thus far doesn’t reveal the title, which concurs with the speculation that it’s still out in the air and ends on a stinger that sees some friendly banter between Rhodey and Rocket. Check out the complete description below:
Sup, you guys dont know me. However few years ago I was the one who posted here on a throw away saying Spider-Man appears in the Civil War Trailer #2 (I told people to remember the word “underoos”
But here’s some info: Final Trailer is about 2ish minutes. But it starts with the 10th year logo, which zooms into the screen in logo fashion but it flashes all colors of the stones as it does
Thanos’ voice: “My Destiny is not yet fulfilled…” A shot of a battered Tony, looks as though he’s still on Titan, confused. “Greater threats arise to undo the balance I lost everything to achieve… and I…. will not… be undone” Shot of Banner and Cap with Vision on a table fades in and out… Shot of Quills ship lifting off. Fades. Tony: “Fury was right.” He’s talking to someone out of view in some type of normal house. This MIGHT be Aunt May, he’s glossy eyed, and the dialogue is spoken over the prior screen, not actually what’s he’s saying. “He was right since day 1…” black screen Tony: scene of him in some sort of garage looking place. In front of 3 different suits, they seem pretty normal? None are the one that was leaked, he has the housing unit in his hands. “I’ll do whatever it takes so that never happens again…” black screen Tony in SHIELD gear. He’s walking towards the camera with soldiers behind him. Shot of Antman standing in the Quantum Realm. Cuts to him surrounded by 3 tardigrades. He’s running, then stops at a green portal type thing. Fades to a shot of Scott in street clothes. Gray shirt jeans and a jean jacket.
Scott: “ I think… I might have a way to help.” Not sure who he’s speaking to. Or if this is even the real dialogue lol. Doesn’t look like it matches.
Shot of an empty throne in Wakanda, various shots of Shuri, M’Baku, and Okoye. Black screen
“This was NOT our fight…” Shuri or Okoye couldn’t tell. Screen still black. Shot of Cap standing arms crossed with Rhodey, Rocket and Thor, in a room that looks like it’s still Wakanda.
Cap: “We need to make this right…”
Banner: “Cap we don’t even know where to start… Thanos is gone. He won.” Thor: “Well… then we had better get to work”
Shot panning down slowly of the pager Fury had in someone’s hands. I’m almost 100% certain it’s in Tony’s hands. A shot of Rhodey suiting up very briefly, from the knees up to the crotch area lol, it’s not nanotech, but looks more or less exactly how Starlords mask materializes with a Thor voiceover: “Are you ready for this?”
Rocket: “Well… if I’m not…” pause. Black Fades in to Rocket, music silences: “What more could I lose?” Bifrost shot w/ Thor, War machine, and Rocket. Various shots. Gauntlet, still damaged, being reached for, shot of Nebula (looks like the same place Tony was earlier) , and then shot of Banner. Black screen. Thor: “We need an army to stand against Thanos…” shot of Thanos putting on armor. “Yours is the only one formidable enough to give us a chance…” shot of Thanos wielding a big double edge sword. “So I ask of you…” Various shots of Black Widow, brief shot of Tony’s suit, Caps new chest piece (chainmail!!!) and banner putting on a purple skintight suit and a button up over it In front of a mirror. Fades to Thor, “Will you help us?” More various shots, including a broken gauntlet on the ground as someone (clearly Thanos) is walking away… same aesthetic and scenery as the one when it’s being reached for. (I think he throws it on the ground??) “It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Earth…” Music is getting louder as it crescendos to a shot of Captain Marvels chest panning up to her face. The scenery behind her almost looks like Xandar. Because it can’t be Earth (that would make no sense) but it’s blue skies and clouds outside a window… Captain Marvel: “Let’s go” Shot of her flying towards something angrily, she cocks back a punch, eyes glowing, flames surround her. She punches, then [Title Card] as Avengers theme plays.
However it doesn’t actually have anything, it’s just a blank screen with the music.. Post theme cutaway stinger, Rocket is in a rolling chair looking at a few computer screens, has on this cool ass white bodysuit.
Rhodey: “I’ve seen a lot of crazy things, but a talking Raccoon? (rocket looks up at him from chair) Definitely tops them all…” Rocket, going from Rhodey back to the computer screens sarcastically: “boy if I had a unit* every time I heard that one” cuts to a shot of Thor smiling with an off queue “Ha Ha Ha”. Trailer ends… This is actually a rough cut. There’s a lot of black screens in the midst of all these lasting 1-2 seconds. This trailer is still slated to debut on Nov. 21,28, or December 12th on Good Morning America. I’m not sure of the scheduling situation. Also, official extended trailer #2 for Captain Marvel will arrive right around Christmas.
You guys can drop the “RemindMe”s if ya want. Just like Civil War, I’ll come back to this post once it drops for you guys’ thoughts. Then bye bye to this account. Also I mentioned red skull being in Infinity War, but at the time I didn’t know if it was 100% sure. I just knew some guys working on it that talked about it. Cheers mates!
Based on how much it underplays stuff compared to some of the other wild descriptions out there, this might very well be the real deal. The only thing that stands out as a sore thumb in this description is almost all footage seems to occur a short while after the snap. This is in contrast to rumors claiming Avengers 4 takes place months, or even years after the events of Infinity War, with Pepper and Tony settled together. Pretty much none of the footage described seems like it takes place a few years or months later, which is right now the only doubt I have about its veracity.
The second description, which was also picked up by certain websites, seems even more bizarre, with parts of it reeking of fan-fiction. In the interest of the minor Appocalypse community that we have, I’ll share this with everyone anyway and leave it for you to judge.
The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the Gauntlet, we hear Tony’s voice: ‘We were destined to lose.’ Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Steve Rogers say: ‘We have come so far.’ Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: ‘Tony’. Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios Logo appears.
“We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from 2012 Avengers. Loki is shown looking shocked and baffled as he is on top of the Stark tower. There is a flash of a blue light as the camera pans back. (Cuts to black) Next we see the Wakandan throne with M’Baku at the helm. He’s surrounded by his new kingsguard. (A mix of the hill tribe and Dora Milaje). Shuri and Banner are seen working on a new project in the lab. Black Widow, in full gear, is in Hawkeye’s family home from Age of Ultron. Basically everything is thrown all over the place and broken. Nat is studying some type of map with multiple photos and locations on it. A quick shot of Thanos is shown with a long sword, walking down an alleyway in New York City. The next shot is a dark hooded figure with glowing eyes, aiming a bow and arrow before shooting towards the camera.
“(1-2 visuals of the Quantum Realm) Scott Lang (no suit) is shown running through a park dodging explosions. (Shot of Space) Thor and Valkyrie are aboard a Kree ship. Thor says: ‘If the stories are true, you’re our universe’s last hope. If such a thing even exists anymore’. The next shot is an older, determined Tony Stark walking through the new SHIELD HQ (Avengers Facility in upstate New York). He’s in full SHIELD attire and carrying an orange briefcase. Banner (wearing spandex) is seen running from something, looking terrified. The next shot is Ant-Man appearing out of a flash of light and landing in a desolate place. We see it from his point of view from inside his helmet. He looks left to right and to his left again and says: ‘What in the-’.
“We see Captain Marvel floating with her fists on fire and her eyes lit up. Thanos in the soul stone with young Gamora screaming at him, Loki and Thor fighting off Chitauri together and Tony handing Steve a brand new shield in the Wakandan throne room. (Cuts back to Tony and Scott) Tony opens the orange briefcase as Scott hands him an illuminated bracelet. Tony asks: ‘How?… Is this even possible?’ Iron Man and Ant-Man are shown travelling through the Quantum Realm. Tony and Scott are back in the battle of New York from 2012. The final shot before the title reveal is an Infinity Stone disappearing from Thanos’ damaged gauntlet. He abruptly gets up and puts on his armour. His face goes from extremely infuriated to a menacing smile.
Title reveal: Avengers: Annihilation.
“Stinger: The Hulk is training at the new SHIELD facility with Black Widow and Steve. Steve notices that Hulk has been training non-stop as of late, so he asks why. Hulk responds in Banner’s normal voice with: ‘My rematch is coming real soon, I can feel it!’
So what makes it sound like it’s authentic? Soon after it was posted, the original post was removed from Reddit. Now why would something be removed if it wasn’t authentic or outright fan fiction? That’s probably the only thing that sells me to these leaks. A lot of it seems like fan fiction and the community seems to agree.
In all fairness, I hope neither of the two turn out to be exactly right. I’d like for Marvel to surprise us by turning out something in between the two. We’ll anyway know soon as the Avengers 4 trailer is being reportedly planned for a November-end or mid-December release, although I’d peg my money on November so that it gets enough time in the spotlight before playing ahead of December’s big releases like Bumblebee, Aquaman and a PG-13 Deadpool 2.
