Marvel just quietly released a ton of character posters for Avengers: Endgame, and they told us so much more than what you might think at first glance. These posters are split in to two groups – colored, and black and white. The black and white seem to be the Avengers who are no longer with us, and the colored poster are those that will be “Avenging the Fallen”. But there are some I was not expecting to see in a certain group (Shuri), and my heart is a little broken.
Those That Survived the Snap
I mentioned it in my breakdown of the Avengers: Endgame trailer, but these posters confirm it – looks like Wong, Happy, and Pepper Potts made it through the snap. We also learn that Valkyrie must have survived. This has me super excited because I adore her. Plus, the actress’ name is Tessa and us Tessas have to stick together! In all seriousness though, she is a bad a*sand I cannot wait to see her in Endgame.
The rest we knew made it through Infinity War, and I cannot wait to see them kick some serious butt in Avengers 4. I was hyped to see a poster for Captain Marvel, even though her end credit scene told us she would be a part of Endgame.
Those That Did Not Survive The Snap
The black and white posters are not only those that were dusted away, they are also those that were lost during the battle with Thanos – Gamora, Loki, and Vision. These three are ones that I fear may never come back. I am holding out hope that Gamora will be back in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, but I am unsure about the other two.
We didn’t know Shuri’s fate, although it was teased in the first Avengers: Endgame trailer when we see her on the missing list. But her being on a black and white poster, well, it seems like she was a victim of Thanos and the snap heard ’round the world.
Spider-Man still hits me hard. His death is one of my top 10 emotional moments in Infinity War, and even though I have seen the movie over 40 times now, I still cry as he disappears.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26th!
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
