Ever since the second trailer of Avengers: Endgame dropped, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been speculating that the Russo brothers have placed some fake scenes to deceive fans. They conspired this from their experience of Avengers: Infinity War. Remember when the Russo brothers fooled us into believing that Hulk was a part of the final battle scene against Thanos in Infinity War through the trailer? Given this betrayal, fans are being extra careful about what they should expect from Avengers: Endgame. Which is why, when the new promo featuring Iron Man aka Tony Stark joining the surviving Avengers on Earth was launched, fans were not totally rejoicing. We were skeptical ourselves, which is why, when we met Joe Russo recently, we quizzed him about it.
The Avengers: Endgame director told BollywoodLife exclusively, “If we were cutting a trailer for a movie that no one has ever seen before, they’ll have no context. We could put anything we want in the trailer. 22 movies in, everyone has the context of everything that happens.” He adds, “We’re very careful about what we show you and how we show it you and when we show it to you. That’s an important part of the process for people who just want to go into the movie unspoiled.”
We also queried him about the relationship between Thor and Captain Marvel in the second trailer. It was the first time that fans witnessed Thor and Carol interact. And without doubt, Twitter began cheering the duo.
Avengers: Endgame releases this month and the tickets are up for grabs in the US. Fans have gone gaga over the summer release. The Marvel movie broke the pre-sale records in six hours of the tickets going live. “Avengers: Endgame sales have exceeded all expectations and surpassed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the previous record-holder, to become Fandango’s top-selling title in its first 24 hours of sales, and it accomplished that feat in only 6 hours,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in a statement.
