On Monday night, the stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gathered in Los Angeles for the long-awaited premiere of Avengers: Endgame.
The entire purple carpet event was live streamed by Marvel, and it was capped off with a new recap TV spot that not only thanked fans for their dedication to the MCU but also reminded everyone not to spoil the many twists of the film.
The promo doesn't feature any new footage from the upcoming film. Instead, it revisits the 21 movies that came before it, charting the history of the MCU all the way back to 2008's Iron Man. It culminates with a shot of the Avengers with their new team suits, as well as a reminder not to spoil the endgame. Then, as every MCU film title populates the screen, Marvel thanks its fans for years of dedication: "Thank you for being part of our universe."
The first (non-spoiler) reactions for Endgame surfaced shortly after the premiere, and they are already calling the Marvel film an emotional epic.
The highly anticipated movie is meant to be a conclusion to the entire Infinity Saga, and it is believed to be the final film for some of the original Avengers.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
