As expected, Marvel released a new trailer for “Avengers: Endgame” during the Super Bowl this evening. The new MCU installment is hitting theaters on April 26th, but fans will have “Captain Marvel” to hold them over in March. Marvel released a first-look teaser for “Avengers: Endgame” back in December, but now fans have a more substantial trailer to watch as they try to extract any clues in the video.
Anthony and Joe Russo, the same team that directed “Avengers: Infinity War,” directed “Endgame” for the studio. The film will feature Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Evangeline Lilly, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Tilda Swinton, Sebastian Stan, Pom Klementieff, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Dave Bautista, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chadwick Boseman, Frank Grillo, Letitia Wright, and Don Cheadle.
“Avengers: Endgame” will be hoping to top “Avengers: Infinity War” at the box office. The previous release had a $257M debut back in April 2018 and went on to make over $2B worldwide.
As we mentioned earlier, the next release for the MCU is “Captain Marvel,” scheduled to launch in theaters on March 8, 2019. That film was directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Starring in the titular role of Captain Marvel is Academy Award winner Brie Larson, she will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, and McKenna Grace. Also featured in the film are Clark Gregg and Jude Law.
Kevin Feige is the producer of Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patty Whitcher, and the late Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Lars Winther is serving as co-producer/first assistant director and David Grant serving as co-producer.
While “Avengers: Infinity War” holds the record for the highest-grossing movie in April, Marvel also holds the top three spots in May. Those films include “Marvel’s The Avengers” with $207M; “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with $191M; and “Captain America: Civil War” with $179M. Not to be outdone “Spider-Man 3,” “Iron Man 3” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” make up numbers four through six on the chart for the month of May. While not every movie on the list was produced by Marvel/Disney, they all come from Marvel comics.
