Rocket Takes The Avengers Into Space In New Endgame Promo


Though Avengers: Endgame will surely have to juggle an overwhelming array of heroes, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige clarified the other month that the stars of 2012’s The Avengers will act as the primary focus of the story. Indeed, Captain America and Iron Man have been featured pretty prominently in the film’s trailers and TV spots, but it won’t only be the OG line-up that gets the spotlight.

As you surely know by now, the Phase 1 heroes will be joined by a few other familiar faces, like War Machine, Ant-Man, Nebula and Rocket, among others, and it’s that last one who arguably gets the best line in this brief new TV spot. Though not the best quality and also not terribly long, this quick little promo gives us a glimpse of the scene where Bradley Cooper’s trash panda takes the gang into space on his ship, warning them not to throw up.

Not to mention we also get a few fresh shots of the team’s newest recruit, Captain Marvel. Yes, Carol Danvers is present in this latest preview and looks ready and able to take on the Mad Titan.

Circling back to Rocket, though, and while most of the Marvel universe has a reason to bear a grudge against Thanos these days, the Guardian of the Galaxy got it particularly bad in Avengers: Infinity War, as nearly all of his friends were dusted in the snap. Even worse is the fact that the hero has yet to learn what happened to his teammates, meaning he’ll likely hear of the devastating news in Endgame.

If nothing else, that’ll give him even more motivation to go after Thanos and we’re excited to see him take on what looks to be an increased role in the film. After all, Rocket’s always a ton of fun to watch and with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 still a long ways away, we’re hopeful that he’ll get a fair amount of time in the spotlight later this month with Avengers: Endgame.
