WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE AVENGERS: ENDGAME TRAILER AHEAD!
December 7th, 2018. The day the Avengers 4 (A4) trailer dropped.
Ever since the wild cliffhanger ending of Avengers: Infinity War earlier this year (and *that* end-credit scene from Ant-Man and the Wasp), fans have been begging Marvel for hints about the next installment in the Avengers franchise. The buzz surrounding the rumored A4 trailer has been high recently, and when I opened Instagram and saw a video of Iron Man looking distressed, I almost dropped my phone in shock--the trailer was finally here.
Stage 1: Excitement
Stage 2: Shock
Stage 3: Dread
The third stage? Dread. Just plain dread. Why does it look like the Avengers have given up? Who let Steve shave his beard? Why is Thanos just chilling? How will Tony get back to Earth? Will he get back to Earth?!
But seriously, why did Steve shave his beard?
Stage 4: Existentialism
The fourth stage is existentialism with a touch of anger. Why oh why does Marvel love to play with our emotions so? And why am I in love with so many superheroes? Will I make it until April? Is Spider-Man doing okay? Also, the name of the movie is Avengers: Endgame, and that makes me nervous...
Stage 5: Excitement (again)
As worrying as the new trailer is--everyone looks really, really bummed out--I think A4 is going to be a great movie. Marvel hasn't let me down before, and no matter what happens, we'll always have the old movies to re-watch and reminisce.
