Yesterday morning, Marvel released the final trailer for the upcoming epic showdown between Avengers vs Thanos in “Avengers: Endgame”. The “Special Look” teaser trailer shows new footage from the superhero blockbuster, and, as can be expected, the remaining Avengers team is having a bit of a bad time.
“It’s not about how much we lost, it’s about how much we have left.”

Since Infinity War, many of the Avengers – in fact, something like half of the beings in the universe – have been evaporated by the almighty Thanos. Still, as to be expected, the team isn’t going to go down without a fight.
As Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (aka Robert Downey Jr.), says: “It’s not about how much we’ve lost, it’s about how much we have left.”
Moving stuff, Tony, very moving!
The trailer was launched yesterday in an attempt to raise hype for the final instalment to astronomical proportions, and also to advertise that pre-order tickets were available to buy online. On both accounts, the trailer seems to have worked.
The tweet by Marvel advertising the new trailer was reposted over 10,000 times in 12 minutes! Not sure even Captain America could move that fast!
Demand for advanced tickets was also so high that it crashed movie-ticket sites Fandango and AMC, to the irritation of Marvel fans throughout the country. The ticket-crashes were also experienced throughout Canada and the UK.
A statement from AMC even tried to blame Thanos for the error, but I don’t think we’re buying that one.
We want everyone to be able to grab their Avengers: Endgame tickets, but it looks like we've gotten Thanos' snap. We're working on getting things back up and running, and in the meantime, please keep trying our website and our partner sites!

Despite the success of the last Avengers movie, which had the biggest opening weekend of any film in history, three times as many tickets were sold in the first hour of pre-sales compared to Infinity War. It’s clear that people around the world are desperate to know the fate of their favorite superhero ensemble.
Although it feels like the Avengers have been around for forever, this is actually only the fourth Avengers movie. That is, if we don’t include all the other Marvel movies, of which there are 22!
The previous Avengers films include 2012’s The Avengers, 2015’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron and 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. This year’s installment is billed to be the last of the Avengers movies, and who can really blame them when many of the actors have played the same characters for almost a decade.
As Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) says in the new trailer: “We’re the Avengers; We’re going to finish this!”
However, with the Avengers franchise bringing in billions of dollars every few years for film studio Disney, despite Black Widow’s best intentions, the Avengers might not be finished just yet.
