Avengers: Endgame Trailer Gets The Logan Treatment


Avengers: Infinity War got unusually heavy by Marvel Studios standards, so it came as little surprise to see the first trailer to the film’s highly anticipated sequel offer a similarly solemn tone. But if you think the Avengers: Endgame teaser could’ve stood to be just a little gloomier, YouTuber Mr. Krepshus has taken it upon himself to give the footage the Logan treatment.

The use of Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” has practically become its own meme among superhero movie enthusiasts, with multiple fan trailers for Infinity War applying this exact song to the film’s grim events. Still, the mournful atmosphere of the Endgame preview seems especially well suited to Cash’s somber Nine Inch Nails cover, and just for further emphasis, the new video also includes a little footage from previous MCU flicks, including several victims of Thanos’ snap.

Just as Logan served as Wolverine’s last stand, Endgame looks to be the final installment in the saga for some of the franchise’s longest-running heroes. Captain America in particular is regularly singled out by the fans as a character who’s likely to die or at least exit from the series in the events of Marvel’s Phase 3 finale, with some parts of the internet even arguing that the new trailer foreshadows Steve Rogers’ death with its shot of the old Peggy Carter photo first seen in Captain America: The First Avenger.

And then, of course, there’s Tony Stark, who’s been in this series right from the start, and remains another character whose demise has already been imagined in countless theories and fan art. Even the Endgame teaser dedicates a large part of its runtime to showing Iron Man on the brink of death, though it’s generally assumed that the film will find some way of saving Stark from his drift through space, if only to end up killing him later. Regardless, we’ll find out who gets to make the sacrifice play when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
