Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl TV spot promises surviving heroes will fight back

Some people move on. But not them — "them" being the heroes who survived the universe-halving Decimation that took place in Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios released a new TV spot for Avengers: Endgame, the follow-up to the heart-breaking and capital-S shocking Infinity War, during the 2019 Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3 — one that promises Earth's Mightiest Heroes will fight back. 

Opening on a shot of a gloomy New York City then sweeping through to show the Statue of Liberty, a long-abandoned football stadium, and a poster that reads, "Where do we go, now that they're gone?", the new Endgame footage establishes the harrowing fact that most of the people on Earth are no longer alive. They died, as did many of our favorite Marvel heroes, when Thanos (Josh Brolin) snapped his big purple fingers and murdered half of all living beings in existence in an act he believed was merciful, in an effort to restore balance and usher in a new universe order. Where some whose lives were spared in the Decimation have accepted the deaths of their loved ones and have taken the steps to move on from the tragedy (which they presumably don't know was the result of an intergalactic tyrant charging up what's effectively a magical glove), the Avengers and co. can't. 

We see Captain America (Chris Evans) biting his lip, crossing his arms, and looking equal parts devastated and irritated at this new reality — then watch as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) tinker away at pieces of technology. (Are they working on a machine that could allow them to undo Thanos' Decimation? We can only dream!) Elsewhere, while War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), and Cap walk across an empty field while looking up at something seemingly quite important, Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) opens the door to a mysterious shed. In another scene, Black Widow practices her shooting skills, sending bullets flying through paper targets. There are also peeks at Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in his Ronin alter-ego before the Endgame teaser wraps on a shot of the heroes walking through Avengers HQ, apparently taking their first steps in a brand-new mission.

As with all things related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, any new footage of Endgame is exciting. Here, Marvel upheld its standard of secrecy and was careful not to reveal too much about the upcoming film, as whatever goes down in Endgame will shape the future of the MCU as it enters Phase Four. This Super Bowl spot, like the first trailer we saw for Endgame, offers up just enough to widen viewers' eyes, pique their interests, and send them running to Reddit to post their theories about potential plot points — but it doesn't spoil anything. All the questions it leaves us with, directors Joe and Anthony Russo will (hopefully) answer when Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on April 26.
