For the last few weeks, it’s felt like the first trailer for Avengers 4 has continuously appeared on the verge of release, only for some fresh report to swoop in with the news that it’s still a few more days away. Last weekend, for instance, the most popular rumor was that the teaser would arrive on Wednesday, but a couple of days after that, the reports came in saying we’d have to wait until this coming Friday.
Since not everyone has the time and energy to keep track of this ongoing stream of updates and predictions, many fans were thinking that the footage still might arrive yesterday, only to end their Wednesday in disappointment, and the social media response is one of disillusionment:

Nonetheless, some fans evidently managed to catch the latest reports that Friday will be the date of arrival, and don’t seem to mind waiting just a little longer for the highly anticipated trailer.
Avengers 4 first trailer to drop Friday morning. Word is they held off on dropping it today in honor of President Bush. Very cool. #Avengers4 #Avengers4trailer #PresidentGeorgeHWBush pic.twitter.com/245A3TkXrv

Avengers 4 trailer was 'rumored' for monday and then for today, nothing officially confirmed so there is no actual delay. it’s coming one day or another this month, and reportedly friday THIS WEEK. stop complaining about having to wait 2 more days.

Though the new Captain Marvel trailer has certainly made this week easier for MCU fans to get through, it’ll still be a relief when the Avengers 4 footage finally drops, if for no other reason than the period of uncertainty and speculation it will bring to an end. It’s been a long journey of repeated build-ups and letdowns, with much of the internet feeling confident just a couple of weeks ago that we’d be seeing the teaser by the end of November.
When the trailer finally does arrive, it has more hype to live up to than we can reasonably put on a two-minute commercial, but Avengers 4 will presumably be saving its biggest secrets for when the film itself hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
