Some new footage from Avengers: Endgame was screened at CinemaCon 2019, and thankfully, its description has surfaced on web.
During Disney’s recent panel at CinemaCon, the attendees were treated to an extended scene from Marvel Studios’ twenty-second film, Avengers: Endgame. Unfortunately, the studio has not released it online. However, thanks to ComicBook, we at least know what was shown. Here’s how the website describes the footage:
Captain Marvel is ready to leave the Avengers facility “to kill Thanos” at the top of the clip. Black Widow wants to work as a team but Captain Marvel has a cocky attitude, claiming Thanos has never faced someone as powerful as her. Captain America realizes “up there” is more her territory but thinks they should work together. She might know people who know where Thanos is but doesn’t know him herself.
Nebula explains Carol need not bother with a search. She knows where Thanos is.
Cut ahead, Nebula goes on about how Thanos made her want to please him, even when she was disassembled, failing, and in pain. His answer to where they would go when his plan was complete would always be “The Garden.”
A hologram comes up — Rocket Raccoon shows that two days ago a similar event to the one that occurred on Earth happened on another planet. He used the Stones again. Captain Marvel wants to use the Stones to bring everyone back and undo Thanos snapping his fingers. Black Widow wants to try. Bruce Banner is hesitant.
Captain Marvel says “because before you didn’t have me” is the reason they failed to defeat Thanos the first time.
“Hey, new girl, everybody in this room is about that super hero life, if you don’t mind me asking, where the hell were you before all of this?” Rhodes asks Carol. She says she was helping other planets which, unfortunately, didn’t have the Avengers. Thor steps to Carol and summons Stormbreaker. She doesn’t flinch.
“I like this one,” Thor says.
Cut ahead, again. “Let’s go get this son of a bitch,” Captain America says.
The Endgame logo plays. The Benetar ship is then seen heading into space. All of the Avengers except Tony are onboard. Black Widow, Cap, and Rhodey have never been to space, to Rocket’s dismay, requesting none of them throw up in his ship. They approach a jump, Cap watches the vibrant colors go by, and the ship speeds off.
The CinemaCon footage for Avengers: Endgame, as indicated by the description, didn’t contain any major spoilers or exciting fight scene. This is definitely welcome news for those of us who weren’t lucky enough to attend the event. It also means that there are chances of Marvel releasing at least a portion of the scene online sometime before the movie hits the theaters as part of its marketing campaign.
An interesting thing about the CinemaCon footage is that Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, and Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, are not part of it. The promotional videos released in the recent past have made it clear that Tony safely returns to Earth with Nebula from Titan, and Scott too has survived The Decimation.
So, it doesn’t seem too far-fetched to speculate that the two could be working on a Plan B. There should be plenty of surprises in store for us when the fourth outing of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes hits the theaters. Marvel surely wouldn’t plan on making us sit for as long as three hours just to show Captain Marvel singlehandedly defeating Thanos.
