Marvel recently released new character posters of Avengers: Endgame and with these posters, the makers have answered many fan questions. The character posters include all the pivotal characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the posters is written the line Avenge the Fallen, with the ‘a’ in ‘fallen’ written in the style of Avengers’ logo.
Clearly, the Avengers, or what remains of them, are finally going to prove true to their name and exact vengeance upon Thanos, the intergalactic supervillain who wiped out half the universe’s life using the Infinity Stones. That might be difficult since the Mad Titan has escaped to an unnamed planet to live the life of a farmer.
While we saw many superheroes turn to dust at the end Avengers: Infinity War, the fate of a few characters was left unclear. These posters maintain a uniform pattern that all the characters who survived Thanos’ snap have coloured posters but all those who turned to dust are featured in black and white.
The big reveals include Valkyrie and Shuri. Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson, was missing in action in Avengers: Infinity War but it left the viewers puzzled as she was on the ship from Asgard after Thor: Ragnarok. We’ll now know of her whereabouts as she has survived Thanos’ snap.
Shuri, who was in Wakanda during Thanos’ snap, turned to dust, much like T’Challa and though we did not see it happen on screen, MCU has now confirmed it.
Here are the posters of Avengers: Endgame:
Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Thor, Natasha, Bruce Banner, Clint Barton, Okoye, Captain Marvel, Scott Lang, Nebula, Okoye, James Rhodes, Pepper Potts, Rocket, Valkyrie, Wong and Happy Hogan are confirmed as alive through these posters.
The dead ones include Black Panther, Star-Lord, Gamora, Doctor Strange, Spider-man, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Nick Fury, Loki, Shuri, Groot, Hope van Dyne, Falcon, Bucky, Mantis and Drax.
Avengers: Endgame is also expected to set up the future slate of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kevin Feige has said that the focus in Endgame will be on the original Avengers. This might indicate that we will be seeing the last of them as the contracts of actors like Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans expires with this movie.
Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26.
