'Avengers: Endgame' Trailer 3 Release Date: Why It's Probably Not Happening
With just a month to go before the official release of Avengers: Endgame.), it’s natural to wonder if another trailer is in the works, but one new report says Marvel won’t be revealing Trailer #3 before the movie’s official debut on April 26.
According to Glamour Fame, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently revealed there’ll be no more trailers for Avengers: Endgame, though it’s unclear where this information comes from. While there isn’t confirmation for this bit of news, it falls in line with marketing for Avengers: Infinity War, which hit theaters around the same time last year and had its final trailer mid-March as well. With only a month left to go before Endgame, studios are less likely to release new trailers because the premiere date is so close.
The Endgame footage has been dissected and analyzed by fans since the first trailer’s release in December and there are multiple theories about what could happen and who will die. Though we’re greedy for any and all things Endgame, the film will be in theaters soon and, even though previous trailers provided some great footage and teasers, none of that footage is guaranteed to appear in the completed film anyway. Think about all the misdirects we’ve gotten so far, from Ant-Man supposedly standing at the front door of the Avengers compound to scenes that seemingly edited out team members to avoid spoilers.
Endgame’s runtime has been revealed to be just over three hours long, and given that trailers are usually no more than two and a half minutes, the assumption was that Marvel would cut together a quick trailer. However, the studio also tends to keep everything close to the chest and everyone involved with the film has practically been tip-toeing around discussions of the plot because they’re afraid of spoiling anything.
That’s understandable though. After all, Endgame is arguably one of the most highly-anticipated films of all time. It’s the culmination of over ten years worth of stories and the Avengers’ “one final stand” together in their fight against Thanos. That means anything and everything is probably a spoiler, so the less footage is out there, the better. Besides, the excitement for the film and the marketing Marvel has done so far means that another trailer wouldn’t have necessarily put more fans in theater seats.
Choosing to not release a third and final trailer may actually be a good thing. Fans are already excited for the film and the lack of new footage means everything that happens in Endgame will come as a surprise (or shock, depending on what it is). In our experience, not knowing too much makes for a better and more memorable cinematic experience.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26, 2019.
