As the overarching plot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps growing, the secrecy surrounding the movies has only grown. Each new poster and trailer is scrutinized by fans across the globe as they try to determine plot details about the next installment, something that's only intensified with the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.
In a bid to throw off audiences, trailers for Avengers: Infinity War went so far as to depict Hulk's involvement in the climactic battle in Wakanda, scenes not included in the actual film. Now it appears the approach to the marketing for Endgame will be no less secretive, but different.
Speaking with MTV during the red carpet event before Sunday night's Golden Globes ceremony, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed speculation that the trailers for Endgame won't depict many events from later in the film.
Asked whether rumors the trailers may not show beyond the first 15 to 20 minutes of the film, Feige replied, "I'd call it somewhat accurate, yeah. I think, as was the case with a lot of our films, this one in particular, you know being able to generate excitement without giving away any of the many, many, many, many secrets would be ideal. And I think the Disney marketing team is the best in the world and we'll be able to pull it off."
The first trailer for Avengers: Endgame debuted in December, and despite its two-minute run time, it did not feature much by way of revealing footage. As the final chapter in Marvel Studio's Phase 3, there are certainly a lot of secrets to keep safe and, given the rumored three-hour run time of the film, the next Endgame trailers may not reveal much about the movie itself.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive on April 26, 2019. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
