Why a New ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer at the Super Bowl Seems Very Possible

We probably won’t be getting a Star Wars: Episode IX trailer at the Super Bowl this weekend, but could Disney still delight fans with a new Avengers: Endgame trailer? There’s reason to believe that new footage from the upcoming Marvel movie could debut during Sunday’s big game in trailer #2 for Avengers: Endgame.

The first reason to get excited is that Disney is definitely going to show something during the Super Bowl. A report from AdAge reveals that the entertainment giant has booked “an undisclosed number of spots.” That’s no surprise considering how many movie’s are on Disney’s docket this year, from Toy Story 4 to the Lion King remake, but there’s another reason fans think at least one of those spots could be reserved for Avengers: Endgame.

Marvel actually has a history of dropping big trailers during the big game. That’s what the company did with last year’s Infinity War. So why not repeat that success again with an Endgame trailer?

Then again, last year we got the first ever Infinity War trailer during the Super Bowl, but Marvel already released the first Avengers: Endgame trailer last month. So this would be trailer #2, which isn’t unheard of but also feels a little soon given the movie’s April release date.

Then again, dropping a trailer during one of the most-watched live sports events in the country will guarantee maximum engagement and exposure. Even a short teaser or some sort of commercial tie-in could be enough to boost excitement for Avengers: Endgame.

Whether it’ll be a full trailer or simply a teaser, Marvel has a history of debuting new trailers and TV spots at the Super Bowl, the first one having been Iron Man back when the MCU was just beginning. So the likelihood of a new trailer is very high.

While we assume to know some aspects of what the plot of Endgame will be — the remaining Avengers regroup and formulate a plan that would bring their comrades back and save the world from Thanos, obviously — the exact details are still a mystery. No trailer is going to spoil the actual movie, but a second sneak peek could give us a lot more information to dissect.

We might even learn the fate of some key missing-in-action characters like Valkyrie and Pepper Potts, who’s rumored to take on her own superhero identity in Avengers: Endgame as Rescue.

Either way, we won’t have to wait very long to find out. The Super Bowl is set to air February 3, 2019.

Avengers: Endgame will be in theaters April 26, 2019.
