There's no doubt that Avengers: Endgame will be a Marvel movie to end all Marvel movies. After Infinity War wiped out half of the Avengers — and half the world's population — the fight to defeat Thanos is the most critical in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There's been a lot of talk and guessing at how Thanos will be defeated — if he'll be defeated — and how the team will avenge the fallen. Luckily, this new Endgame clip shows Captain Marvel and the Avengers are making a plan, not only to defeat Thanos, but to bring back those they lost, too.
On Monday, April 8, Good Morning America, released the clip along with a mini interview with the original Avengers cast — Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth — all of whom survived the snap in Infinity War. It shows the scene leading up to Thor's iconic stare-down with Carol Danvers, as seen in a previous trailer. In that scene before the confrontation, the Avengers realize that Thanos used the Infinity Stones again, spurring an argument about trying to defeat him, and bring everyone back. Hint: it involves trying to steal the stones back.
In the clip, Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, notices that Thanos is using the stones, therefore they're viable and able to be used again. And that means, they could be used to bring all of those who were dusted in the snap back. Carol is ready to get into action and get the stones right away, gaining Captain America's approval of the plan. However, Bruce Banner and Rhodey aren't so keen on the idea. Bruce is very cautious because it could end in exactly the same way as Infinity War (or worse) and Rhodey, meanwhile, isn't so sure about Carol. She's certain that they'll win because she's in the mix now, but Rhodey isn't convinced, and also a bit annoyed at her being AWOL for so long.
This brings another interesting element into this clip, because it also confirms one of the theories of where Carol Danvers has been since she left Earth in 1995 at the end of Captain Marvel. "There are a lot of other planets in the universe," Carol tells Rhodey in the clip. "And unfortunately, they didn't have you guys."
This scene is actually pretty revealing when it comes to the Avengers' plan to defeating Thanos. It also seems to sideline any fan theory about Quantum Realms, time travel, and alternate realities. But could it really be as simple as just getting the Infinity Stones and using them to bring back everyone who disappeared in the snap? Seems a bit too easy. So it's important to note that this scene was could have been released to purposely throw fans off.
There's a couple weeks left until Endgame comes to theaters and finally answers all of our questions. If this clip proves anything, it's that the Avengers aren't giving up on those they've lost, they've got a little trick up their sleeve (aka Captain Marvel), and Thanos is in for an even bigger fight this time around.
