Marvel fans have been waiting on the edge of their seats to find out the name and release date of the latest installment in the Avengers films.
And now their patience is being rewarded, as the Avengers directorial duo Joe and Anthony Russo have finally shared the trailer of the new film.
The new movie will be released on April 26 of next year, and it will feature all your favorite Marvel superheroes, including Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Captain America. The Russos announced the trailer via Tweet:
Watch the full preview below:
Wow! As you can see, the new installment will be named “Avengers: Endgame,” and it will be an intense follow-up to the destruction left behind after the event now known as The Decimation in “Avengers: Infinity War.”
As fans know, in “Infinity War,” Thanos (Josh Brolin) killed more than half of all life on planet Earth at the snap of his fingers. Fans have been referring to that infamous moment as the “Snappening,” but the trailer reveals that Marvel has given that event an official name. As ScreenRant explains, calling it “The Decimation” is fitting as it hearkens back to earlier comics involving the Scarlet Witch.
Fans have been buzzing about the possible fallout of The Decimation, and many felt certain that Captain America will meet his death in this latest installment after actor Chris Evans posted this emotional tweet about his time playing Captain America:
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.

Sounds like a goodbye, doesn’t it? But Evans was quick backpedal on the tweet, assuring fans at ACE Comic Con that this tweet was not meant to reveal his upcoming death, but rather just a reflection on how much he loves his time working with his Avengers family.
“I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler,” Evans told fans at the convention. “That last day of filming really was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies — this unbelievable tapestry — and you feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel, and I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect, but I am neither confirming nor denying anything.”
Hmm, still seems to be a bit of foreshadowing, doesn’t it? We will just have to wait until April 2019 to find out!
