The Marvel superheroes who survived Thanos are prepared to hunt down the villain and get the Infinity Stones back in a never-before-seen clip from “Avengers: Endgame” shown at CinemaCon on Wednesday.
The new clip shows Captain Marvel, as headstrong as ever, charging off to stop Thanos. But the Avengers tell her to stop and that they need to work as a team. When War Machine asks her where she has been all this time, Captain Marvel simply says, “There are a lot of other planets in the universe, and unfortunately they didn’t have you guys.”
Cut to Nebula and Rocket, who tell the Avengers that they know where Thanos is. Nebula remembers that back when Thanos experimented on and tortured her, he said that he had a garden on a peaceful planet that he was going to retire to once he wiped out half of existence. Rocket, meanwhile, was able to track the cosmic wave launched from Earth by Thanos’ snap to the planet he’s living on.
The clip ends with Rocket piloting the Guardians of the Galaxy’s ship, the Milano, with Captain Marvel, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and War Machine in tow. The latter three raise their hands when Rocket asks who onboard is in space for the first time.
“No throwing up on my ship,” he grumbles.
The 22nd Marvel Cinematic Universe installment sees the original Avengers struggling to cope with their defeat at the hands of Thanos and the erasing of half of all life in the universe. With the help of Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, and other “Infinity War” survivors, the Avengers come up with one last, desperate plan to undo Thanos’ genocide at any cost.
Set for release on April 26 in the U.S., “Avengers: Endgame” will be released on the same weekend in all worldwide movie markets. The film is expected to pass the record $630 million global opening set by “Infinity War,” and join its predecessor as only the second summer release to gross over $2 billion worldwide.
Combined, the 21 previous Marvel Studios films have grossed $18.5 billion worldwide, and “Avengers: Endgame” is expected to push the MCU past the $20 billion franchise lifetime gross mark.
