The Film Title: Avengers 4: Endgame
Before the name of Avengers 4: Endgame as in the recently released recently with the official trailer, the movie has been given another name like Avengers: Infinity War - Part 2. Then in 2016, the Russo brothers and Marvel Studio decided to give it a different name.
At that time, Joe Russo had told Uproxx that these were two different films, they would definitely change it but still had not identified the title.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has revealed that the name of the movie will be announced near the end of 2018. And then, the title of the film debuted at the same time as the trailer on December 7th, 2018.
And here's the trailer:
The Official launch date for Avengers 4: Endgame is April 26, 2019
In the meantime, Marvel also released a new movie, Captain Marvel (which will be released on March 8, 2019). This film is set in the early 1990s, before the time of the Avengers 3: Infinity War and the main story of every other Marvel Cinema Universe film was released before.
Then on 5 July 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home will be screened with the participation of young actor Tom Holland, who brought success to the Spider-Man before.
Who will be in Avenger 4: End Game?
Avengers 4: Endgame is filmed at the same time as Avengers 3: Infinity War, so we can expect a lot of characters to return in this new part. We do not know for sure yet, but here are some people expected to be featured in this part of the movie:
Robert Downey Jr. Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Anthony Mackie as the Falcon Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Dave Bautista Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther, Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Paul Bettany as the Vision, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill Agent .
There are also characters that did not appear in the previous Avengers 3: Infinity War, likely to look in this part such as Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye/ Ronin, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, and Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, who will be introduced by Marvel early next year in her own film.
What will happen in this movie?
Often, we can briefly discuss or guess the happenings in the films before the film premieres and speculates at the end of the film. However, with this film, we can not say anything that will certainly happen or not happens in the movie.
When the movie opens following the end of the previous part, half the population in the universe is dissipated, it is difficult to predict what will happen next. Marvel was very content with the film, and the trailer in the trailer also brought controversy to the fan community.
On Earth, the remaining Avengers include Thor, Black Widow, Captain America seeking to find their surviving teammates like Ant-Man and Hawkeye (now a Ronin with a dark side). And they will certainly act like their name – Avengers, finding ways to fight and avenge Thanos. In outer space, Iron Man is in a Guardians of the Galaxy spacecraft, and may also have Nebula on board.
Who will go and who will return?
This is really unpredictable because after the end of Avengers 4: Endgame, only Spider-Man is known that the exact date of the sequel. The next movie of Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, the Black Panther have yet to announce any specific definitions despite previous agreements.
Kevin Feige has announced that everything that happens after Avengers 4: Endgame will become a representative for a new era, especially for franchisees. It will undoubtedly be so when many of the veteran Marvel Cinematic Universe has expired the contract and have no intention of extending it.
Whose contracts are about to expire?
Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evan all reached the contract limit at the end of Avengers 4: Endgame.
Downey's case is a bit different, that time will be the time for renegotiation of his contract rather than ending after Robert and Marvel Studios have come up with a new deal that could keep him in the lot. More than Marvel's standard six-film contract. Robert was a successful pioneer for the Marvel universe when he first debuted with the character Tony Stark in Iron Man 2008. However, Downey has not confirmed that he will appear in any of Marvel film after Avengers 4: Endgame yet, including Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Don Cheadle will also make his final appearance in Avengers 4: Endgame as War Machine if he also signed six standard films with Marvel.
About Chris Hemsworth, when asked about his stay in the Marvel universe, he expressed that he was willing to return to Thor. Marvel also plans for Black Widow to have her own movie and the lead role is taken over by Scarlett Johansson, so she will probably stay with Marvel for some time.
Who disappeared and who stayed behind the snaps of Thanos?
The characters are killed before or after Thanos snapped away half humanity in space: Doctor Strange, Drax, Gamora, Black Panther, The Wasp, Star-Lord, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Vision, Scarlet Witch. Falcon, Spider-Man, Bucky Barnes, Curls, Heimdall and Mantis.
The characters indeed survived: Iron Man, Black Widow, Nebula, M'Baku, Bruce Banner, Ant-Man, Thor, War Machine, Okoye, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Rocket Raccoon.
The characters are still not sure about their survival: Pepper Potts - whom Iron Man sent a message about when drifting aboard the spaceship in Avengers 4 trailer, Stark's special assistant - Happy Hogan, and the man Doctor Strange's friend - Wong. They have not appeared since Thanos's flick, but this does not mean they are not alive.
Besides, T'Challa's sister - Shuri is not sure if she is still alive or has disappeared, or maybe she has become the queen of Wakanda after her brother disappeared. In the trailer, the appearance of both Ant-Man and Shuri on the board is marked missing at the Avengers' headquarters. But at the end of the trailer, Ant-Man shows up at the door, so that Shuri's survival is uncertain.
Captain Marvel still has the character listed as unknown has been dissolved in the snap or not. Carol Danvers/ Captain Marvel has not appeared in any of the Avengers films yet. But before disappearing, Nick Fury sends her a message informing her of her ability to appear in the Avengers 4 and is unaware of the timing and context.
But in a comic universe, people who have died do not mean they can not come back to stop the trouble.
The plot is based on comics
Avengers 3: Infinity War is based on Marvel Comics' 1991 story - Marvel Gauntlet. Accordingly, Thanos uses a glove containing six infinity stones and kills half the universe but is later defeated by his own self and Nebula's plan. As you can see, Nebula is a pretty small character in the vast Marvel universe, but she survived after Thanos's snap.
Soul Stone is one of the key elements, according to the Infinity War storyline, that has a world of its own called the Soul World. Perhaps this helps Thanos to talk to Young Gamora on the orange plane and head out to the end.
There may be cases where the avengers will use Time Stone to change everything. All this will be answered when Avengers 4: Endgame is officially released.
