Avengers: Endgame IMAX Trailer Solves A Few Marvel Fan Theories


The first trailer for Avengers: Endgame has been the subject of an insane level of frame by frame scrutiny from the fans, but while it’s quite possible that the internet has already spotted all there is to spot from the online video, the teaser’s upcoming IMAX showings will give fans a much bigger screen from which to conduct their analysis. Indeed, MCU Cosmic has already reported that the extra screen space and higher quality footage has helped confirm a couple of previously speculated points.

First off, there’s the shot from the teaser that’s been widely interpreted as showing Nebula’s hand on Tony Stark’s shoulder. While some fans have suggested that the person sitting down could actually be Natasha Romanoff or Steve Rogers, since both characters are witnessed in similar outfits to Tony’s while on what appears to be an aircraft, the IMAX version allows us to see the stubble on Robert Downey Jr.’s face and the curved windshield design of the Benatar ship, confirming that this is indeed Iron Man.

What’s more, the IMAX trailer gives us a fuller picture of Nat’s hair when she encounters Hawkeye in Japan, which is seen to be in a ponytail, rather than pulled back into a braid like some previously leaked promo art would indicate.

The clarification is appreciated, though anyone who remembers the fake Hulk scene from the Avengers: Infinity War trailer knows not to believe everything they see in an MCU preview. We’ll find out if and how we’ve been deceived by the footage when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019, but in the meantime, you can see the teaser blown up large when it comes to cinemas this weekend to accompany IMAX screenings of Aquaman.
