Avengers: Endgame Trailer Had a Major Comic Easter Egg

Marvel finally released a trailer for Avengers: Endgame, and it’s depressing as hell. The remaining Avengers are still in mourning following the events of Avengers: Infinity War, with Steve Rogers taking the loss especially hard. When I saw Steve crying I nearly lost it!

Making the trailer even more depressing is a scene about halfway through, where we see Bruce Banner and Black Widow talking about the lives lost in the snap. Chief among the losses is Scott Lang and Shuri, as well as Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.

The scene is actually a callback to the “Infinity Gauntlet” comic, which features a detailed panel of the heroes who perished after Thanos wipes out half the universe.

In the comics, people like Human Torch, Iceman, Wasp, Thing, and Quicksilver are lost. Even Hawkeye is on the list, though as the trailer shows, Hawkeye is alive, but he’s assumed the identity of Ronin.

Additionally, the trailer shows that Scott Lang actually isn’t dead. In fact, he shows up at the Avengers headquarters, probably to tell them about the time vortexes in the Quantum Realm.

It’s unclear if Avengers: Endgame will take other plot points from Infinity Gauntlet, but there have been some convincing theories that it will. We’ll find out when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26, 2019.
