With exactly one week to go until the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel has released a new batch of stills, most of which show Earth’s Mightiest Heroes looking pretty glum.
As is the norm for official Endgame images, all of these pics have been taken from the trailers. Nonetheless, if you feel like getting another look at the team’s moody expressions as they reflect on the snap or contemplate their next hight-stakes mission, the gallery below is yours to browse.
Indeed, various reports, as well as the film’s trailers, have suggested that we’re in for a more somber watch than your average MCU outing, at least in the movie’s opening passages. Even co-writer Stephen McFeely told Empire earlier this year that the feature’s first act “comes from a darker place,” adding that Thor in particular has “a lot of guilt” for his famous Avengers: Infinity War blunder. Turns out that failing to prevent a universe-wide genocide is a lot to have on your conscience.
The new stills also offer a reminder that Tony Stark will have a lot more to worry about than a little guilt in the early stretches of Endgame. As you likely recall, the trailers suggest that Iron Man is going to have some trouble getting home from Titan, ultimately finding himself stranded in the middle of space and running out of oxygen.
That being said, it feels safe to assume that Robert Downey Jr.’s character will make it back to Earth somehow. After all, his travelling partner Nebula is right there in the pictures, sharing a moment with War Machine.
In any case, we’ll find out just what these images aren’t showing us when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
