On April 26, arguably the biggest movie of 2019 will be released. I'm talking about Avengers: Endgame, a film that recently topped Fandango's list of most anticipated movies of 2019 (besting Captain Marvel and Star Wars: Episode IX). The movie is so big that we may as well declare April Avengers: Endgame month.

When Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, it'll mark the end of an era. It was over ten years ago when Iron Man kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe, paving the road to where we are now. It also began the Thanos storyline as the Mad Titan set out to collect the Infinity Stones.

Here's everything you need to know about Avengers: Endgame.

April 15, 2019 - Defeat Thanos with new Avengers: Endgame Playmoji

To celebrate the arrival of Avengers: Endgame, Google has introduced new Marvel characters to its collection of Playmoji.

Pixel owners can now have fun with War Machine, Thor, Black Widow, Rocket, and Captain Marvel. Their arrival follows the availability of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Nebula, and Okoye.

Google released a video alongside the new Playmoji, which imagines what "would happen if Pixel 3 was launched into a world in need of a little assistance, alongside the Avengers."

April 11, 2019 - Captain America goes to space in new Avengers: Endgame clip

Marvel on Thursday dropped a new TV spot for Avengers: Endgame, in which the Avengers assemble for one last fight against Thanos.

In the clip, Captain America can be heard giving a speech about their mission to defeat the Mad Titan. It's one of those inspiring speeches a captain might give before a big game. "Look out for each other," Cap says.

While the clip doesn't reveal much in the way of new footage, it does see Rocket interact with Ant-Man, as well as Cap looking mighty uncomfortable in space.

"This is the fight of our lives," Cap says, before the Avengers all put their hands together as a show of solidarity before their mission.

April 8, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame clip sees Captain Marvel clash with the Avengers

We've been wondering why Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel) wasn't around to protect Earth when Thanos began his invasion party. Now, we have an answer.

In a clip unveiled by Good Morning America, we get a more extended look at Captain Marvel interacting with the Avengers. Never one to back down or mince words, she wants to waste no time when it comes to going after Thanos.

When the Avengers see an energy signature that indicates Thanos has once again used the Infinity Stones, the team debates whether or not they should go after him. Bruce Banner and James Rhodes are apprehensive, while Black Widow and Captain Marvel are ready for a fight.

Seemingly frustrated by her gung-ho attitude, Rhodey asks Captain Marvel where she's been all these years.

"There are a lot of other planets in the universe, and unfortunately, they didn't have you guys," Captain Marvel answers.

My question is: Why is Thanos using the Infinity Stones again? I thought he'd be watching sunsets and admiring a grateful universe?

April 5 - Avengers: Endgame barreling towards record-breaking opening

Avengers: Endgame tickets went on sale earlier this week and made one thing abundantly clear: it is going to have a blockbuster movie. It is tracking ahead of almost every other movie, crashing AMC Theaters servers and wrecking Fandango, so you know anticipation is high, but how high is it?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, early tracking for Marvel Studios pegs the opening weekend for Avengers: Endgame somewhere between $200 million and $250 million. That would be a massive top-5 all-time opening. If it came in closer to the high mark, that would make it only the second moving to gross $250 million on a domestic opening weekend.

However, it should be noted that when Avengers: Infinity War was tracked, it was came in around $185 million to $225 million before grossing $257.6 million, the biggest domestic opening of all time. All things even, it sounds as if Avengers: Endgame will top that figure and set a new record. Here's where it would stand on the all-time domestic opening weekend.

  1. Avengers: Infinity War - $257.6 million
  2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens - $247.9 million
  3. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - $220 million
  4. Jurassic World - $208.8 million
  5. The Avengers - $207.4 million

This should not come as a surprise. Avengers movies have been setting records since the first one opened in 2012 and that will continue with the next movie when it opens on April 26.

April 4, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame footage reveals tense exchange between Avengers and Captain Marvel

Note: If you want to go into Avengers: Endgame without knowing anything, turn back now. This post will describe a scene in the movie and reveal why Captain America hasn't helped until now.

At CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week, Disney shared more footage of Avengers: Endgame behind closed doors. In it, a tense exchange occurs between the Avengers and Captain Marvel—and we finally get an answer as to where she has been all this time.

IGN has the description:

The footage opens mid-scene with Carol Danvers about to walk out on Cap, Banner, Natasha, Thor, Rhodey, Rocket and Nebula. No sign of Tony Stark or Scott Lang here. When asked where she's going, Carol says matter-of-factly, "To kill Thanos."

The Avengers tell her they usually work as a team, not that it fazes Carol. Rhodey, mind you, doesn't seem to like Carol -- you'd think he'd be cool with a fellow former USAF officer -- and grills her about where she's been all this time. Carol says there are a lot of planets out there who don't have Avengers to help them. That answer seems to suit Cap fine.

Carol says she knows someone who may be able to tell her where Thanos is. But Nebula does one better and says she knows exactly where he is. Nebula recalls how, even when she was disassembled, she wanted to please him. Thanos would explain his plan to her and he would always give the same answer about where he would retire to after it was accomplished.

Rocket uses a hologram to show a planet where, two days prior, the same energy signature that was recorded when Thanos used the Infinity Gauntlet on Earth appeared again. That means Thanos has used the Stones again. "So let's use them to bring everyone back," it's brought up during an exchange between Carol and the Avengers.

Some of the Avengers seem apprehensive about going after Thanos, especially after what happened last time, but Captain Marvel assures them that things will be different, because she's around to help this time.

Then, the scene ends with an all-time line from Captain America.

"Let's go get this son of a bitch."

I'm telling you right now, that's going to get a lot of applause during screenings on April 26.

April 2, 2019 - New Avengers: Endgame trailer brings the fight to Thanos

Marvel has released another short trailer for Avengers: Endgame, and it's made up of primarily new footage. But even though the footage is new, it doesn't tell us much. All we know is that the Avengers are assembling to bring the fight to Thanos.

Oh, and Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are once again friends, as Tony asks, "Do you trust me?" Then the two do a Bro Shake and it hits me right in the feels.

The Avengers seems a little desperate and at the wit's end as they struggle with how to move on from Thanos's snap. It would seem they have a solution for how to avenge the fallen, but as Bruce Banner points out, they'd be going in short handed.

"You mean cause he killed all our friends," James "Rhodey" Rhodes retorts.

In case you missed it, tickets are also now available for Avengers: Endgame, but scoop them up quick, because showtimes are selling out.

April 1, 2019 - Marvel shares India anthem for Avengers: Endgame

Marvel has teamed up with A.R. Rahman to create an anthem for the Indian market. You can watch the full video above, which sadly doesn't feature any new footage for the upcoming movie.

March 28, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame poster hints the dead will soon rise

The other day, Marvel unveiled 32 character posters for Avengers: Endgame—16 characters who were dead and 16 characters who survived. It displayed a perfect balance, as all things should.

Marvel has now released a poster destined for display in China, and it hints that the dead will soon rise.

It's a very slick poster because it features the Avengers front and center, including Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man. More interestingly, below them are some of the fallen heroes, many of whom (all of whom?) will likely return from the dead by the time Avengers: Endgame is finished.

At the very least, we know characters like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and the Guardians will return, since they have sequels coming up.

Avengers: Endgame is said to clock in at just over three hours, so there will be plenty of time to see the Avengers do whatever it takes to avenge the fallen.

March 27, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame feature is filled with dread and defeat

Let's face it: In Avengers: Infinity War, Earth's Mightiest Heroes lost. And there's no prize for coming in second place when lives are at stake.

But even though the Avengers didn't win, they're not ready to give up just yet.

In a new featurette released by Marvel, some of the surviving Avengers talk about the lessons learned from defeat—a concept they're not used to, having come out victorious over the past 20+ movies.

Audiences aren't used to the concept of heroes losing either, which is what made Avengers: Infinity War so shocking. Luckily, in just under a month from now, our heroes will have a chance to avenge the fallen by doing whatever it takes.

We'll see how everything unfolds when Avengers: Endgame hit theaters very soon.

March 26, 2019 - New "Avenge the Fallen" character posters drop one month before release

Avengers: Endgame is coming out in exactly one month, and to commemorate the occasion, the cast and crew dropped a ton of new "Avenge the Fallen" character posters. Like the name suggests, the posters are meant to highlight the fallen comrades as they regroup to enact revenge upon Thanos.

There are two series to the posters: the colored posters are those of the alive characters, and the black and white are those for the fallen Avengers. It's a similar aesthetic to what the trailers have done by contrasting footage of the fallen character with black and white footage.

In all, every major character is accounted for, even some that didn't appear in Avengers: Infinity War such as Happy Hogan and Valkyrie. This also confirms that the two characters did survive the snap. Take a look at all the posters and let us know what you think. My personal favorite is Rocket Raccoon. He looks very peaceful, as opposed to his usual self.

March 25, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame is likely over 3 hours long

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently teased the film would be long—really long. Now, thanks to an AMC listing, we might actually know the movie's final runtime: 3 hours and two minutes.

Considering the stakes involved in the upcoming film, hearing that Avengers: Endgame is long is no real surprise. The Avengers have to undo the damage done by Thanos, and it's not going to be a cake walk.

If the movie is entertaining, audiences won't even realize the length when they're sitting in the theaters. Avengers: Infinity War was 2 hours and 29 minutes long, but it hardly felt like it. My guess is three hours will fly by.

In addition to listing the runtime for Avengers: Endgame, AMC also lists a short synopsis:

The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios' grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.

March 21, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame TV spot teases crucial moment in fight against Thanos

Marvel has introduced the first TV spot for Avengers: Endgame, and while it doesn't include any footage we haven't seen, it teases a big moment in the fight against Thanos.

"Today we have a chance to take it all back," a voiceover from Steve Rogers says.

"Take it all back," of course, refers to the devastating snap from Avengers: Infinity War. But how, exactly, will the Avengers take it all back?

With time travel a rumored plot point in Avengers: Endgame, this new TV spot could hint at a plan to hop into the Quantum Realm, where a time vortex could be utilized to undo the snap by Thanos.

The Avengers will take it all back when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.

March 19, 2019 – Don't believe what you see in those Avengers Trailers

We're ready for Avengers: Endgame. We're anxiously keeping an eye out for Avengers tickets, we're ready for Captain Marvel to save the day and we can't wait to see who lives and who dies in the end.

The Avengers: Endgame trailers have us anxious for the film's release on April 26, but as it turns out, they might be a misleading. Director Joe Russo has confirmed a long-running theory that the trailers contain extra scenes that won't make it to the final cut, in a bid to keep fans in suspense.

Speaking to Empire Online, Joe Russo confirmed:

We talked about all scales of marketing. The thing that's most important to us is that we preserve the surprise of the narrative. When I was a kid and saw The Empire Strikes Back at 11am on the day it opened…it so profoundly moved me because I didn't know a damn thing about the story I was going to watch. We're trying to replicate that experience.

All of this means we're going to have to wait until April 26 to know exactly what happens. Which shots do you think are misleading us? Check out the trailer below and let us know on Twitter.

March 14, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame trailer features a glimmer of hope in Captain Marvel

Marvel has released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame, and while it continues to paint a dire picture, there's the faintest glimmer of hope: Captain Marvel.

It seems that now that her solo movie has been released, Marvel has no problem revealing that, yes, she will be joining the fight come April 26. I guess you don't have to watch that post-credits scene in Captain Marvel to see her with the Avengers.

Here's how Captain Marvel connects to Avengers: Endgame

Much of the trailer recaps where the Avengers have been and the kind of loss they've encountered. But the thing that makes them heroic is that they persevere. They continue to fight.

In this case, the Avengers aren't content to move on from their defeat and want to undo the astronomical damage done by Thanos. How they're going to achieve that remains unclear, but their new white suits and the Quantum Realm might have something to do with it.

March 7, 2019 - Disney shows off new footage to shareholders

With about two months until Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, Disney is starting to unveil more of the movie. At a shareholders meeting on Thursday, the company showed off more footage to those in attendance. Comicbook has the scoop:

According to our source, the footage starts out with the Avengers sitting in the room at the Avengers compound we saw in the first teaser and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) is in attendance. Nebula (Karen Gillan) mentions that she thinks Thanos would go to "the garden" after he completed his plan.

Captain Marvel speaks up and tells the group they need to go there and use the stones to undo everything. The footage then showed Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Nebula, Captain America (Chris Evans), War Machine (Don Cheadle), and Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson) in space. Rocket says something along the lines of, "Who has never been in space before? Raise your hand."

The footage then closes with Rocket warning those who haven't been in space to not puke on his ship.

February 7, 2019 - The official synopsis for the movie revealed

As April gets closer, we are finding out more and more details about Avengers: Endgame. We just got a new and somewhat limited TV spot (which you can see below) during the Super Bowl that gave us some new footage of the Avengers and now, thanks to Disney's Australian site, we know the official synopsis for the movie, and it is all about retribution.

Avenger the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of the remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos' actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.

That last part is the most interesting. One of the popular theories surrounding Avengers: Endgame has been who can possibly die. Judging from the last line in the synopsis, death may take a heavy toll as the Avengers take on Thanos and undo the damage he has done.

January 29, 2019 - Avengers: Endgame merchandise reveals new "space suits"

Earlier this year, we got a glimpse at some of the original Avengers wearing new "space suits." Now, a new toy leak purports to confirm the sartorial changes coming to the Avengers universe.

Images shared by Stephen Parker on Twitter reveals Thor, Rocket, Valkyrie, and Black Widow all wearing new suits, which will apparently be for time traveling purposes.

The images don't reveal much else—and it's always difficult to ascertain a movie's plot details based on toys. Oftentimes what's included in a toy set isn't what is found in a movie.

All the big details

Avengers: Endgame trailer

Not much is shown in the official trailer for Avengers: Endgame, and that's the way we like it. Rather than showing audiences how the remaining Avengers will undo the damage done by Thanos, we instead see how they're struggling to come to terms with defeat.

Defeat is certainly a new concept to the Avengers, who have been undefeated up until Thanos showed up. But they're not ready to give up so easily—they owe it to the lives lost to fight back.

Here's hoping Marvel doesn't get too anxious and show much more from Avengers: Endgame. The hype for the film is already through the roof. No need to spoil what's to come.

Avengers: Endgame release date and runtime

Avengers: Endgame is set to hit theaters on April 26, 2019. The official runtime is three hours and two minutes, making it the longest Marvel movie yet.

Avengers: Endgame title

For months, Marvel kept Avengers: Endgame's official title a secret, saying to reveal it would be a spoiler. Turns out, it ended up being titled what everyone expected all along.

The "endgame" in Avengers: Endgame refers to a line spoken by Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War. Before giving the Time Stone to Thanos, he tells Tony Stark, "We're in the endgame now."

The definition of endgame is: the final stage of a game such as chess or bridge, when few pieces or cards remain. With only a few Avengers left and half of the universe gone, the stakes have never been higher.

Avengers: Endgame recap

The MCU began all the way back in 2008, so you may have forgotten what's happened up until now. All you really need to know is that Thanos successfully wiped out half the universe after collecting all six Infinity Stones. He said he did it for the good of all life, as a way to ensure prosperity across the universe.

After Tony Stark's introduction, Marvel spends Phase 1 introducing the founding members of the MCU, including Bruce Banner/Hulk, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Thor, and Steve Rogers/Captain America. In 2012, the Avengers team up to take on Loki and a Chitauri invasion of New York. They eat shawarma and call it a day.

In Phase 2, the Infinity Stones start to become a more important part of the narrative. The Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man make their debut, giving Marvel the chance to explore the complexity of the Quantum Realm.

Then, in a mid-credits scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thanos wields an Infinity Gauntlet and vows to personally collect the Infinity Stones, rather than hiring others to do the work for him.

Phase 3 is easily Marvel's most important phase, because it features the most drama, action, and destruction. In Captain America: Civil War, the Avengers become divided over the Sokovia accords, a document that would have given a panel power to control the team. It's this movie we're introduced to Tom Holland's Spider-Man.

Marvel then introduces Doctor Strange and Black Panther, before we finally get to Avengers: Infinity War, where Thanos successfully collects the Infinity Stones and wipes out half the universe. Some of the MCU's biggest characters died, including Spider-Man, Peter Quill, and Black Panther, to name a few.

Avengers: Endgame characters

Not everyone perished from Thanos's snap. In fact, quite a few Avengers survived. Here's a list of who will still be alive when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters.

  • Black Widow
  • Captain America
  • Ant-Man
  • Hawkeye
  • Hulk
  • M'Baku
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Nebula
  • War Machine
  • Pepper Potts
  • Wong
  • Happy Hogan
  • Iron Man
  • Okoye
  • Thor
  • Valkyrie
  • Captain Marvel

Avengers: Endgame plot

At this point, very little is know about Avengers: Endgame. About all we do know is that the Avengers have some sort of plan. But what is it?

Over the past several months, there have been numerous theories about how Avengers: Endgame will unfold, from speculation about a cosmic threat to traveling through the Quantum Realm. The thing is, we have no clue what's going to happen.

Based on what we learned in the trailer, we know that whatever Scott Lang has to say to the Avengers, it's very important. Remember, right before Lang went into the Quantum Realm at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Janet Van Dyne warned him to stay away from time vortexes.

Time travel is going to play an important part

We're not sure how Lang was able to escape the Quantum Realm, but Van Dyne's line about time vortexes is likely very important.

Many rumors about Avengers: Endgame claim the remaining Avengers will go back in time and attempt to collect the Infinity Stones before Thanos does. Whether they're successful remains to be seen, but you can bet characters like Spider-Man and Black Panther won't stay dead.

Not to mention Captain Marvel has yet to join the fray. The hero will make her long awaited debut in Captain Marvel in March, before becoming a more important part of the wider MCU. Why else would Nick Fury have paged her at the end of Avengers: Infinity War?
