The Super Bowl aired last night and the overall consensus from football fans was that the game was mediocre, but the Marvel spots—Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame—stole the show. Take a peek at the 30-second Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl spot:
Kevin Feige, the boss over at Marvel, has confirmed that every trailer released until the film’s premiere will only include footage from the first 15-20 minutes of the film, so as not to be too-spoilery (read: not like Wolverine’s unnecessary cameo in the the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer.)
The Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl spot was more of a hype clip, and I’m fine with it. Our Avengers (plus Rocket) are banding together to walk through the Avengers facility towards a (ship?) to head on some sort of mission to (what we assume):
A) revert time
B) save what’s left of the universe (or Tony?)
Let’s dig in on the nitty gritty.
Here are 5 things we learned from the clips we were shown in the Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl spot:
Nebula and Tony are working on… something.
Tony hasn’t given up yet—and we wouldn’t expect him to. It’s actually kind of perfect that Nebula is the one person he’s stuck with on a ship in the middle of outer space. Why? Because Nebula is a candy shop to an engineer. She has a warehouse full of goodies to rebuild his Iron Man suit… in her body. I can’t wait to see where this goes.
Cap isn’t giving up—still.
We saw in the first Avengers: Endgame trailer that Cap and Natasha (Black Widow) received a visit from Scott Lang, our fan-favorite Ant-Man. Last time we saw Scott, he was floating in the Quantum Realm after Thanos wiped out half of the universe… so how did he get out? Read more on that theory and how we think Captain Marvel had something to do with his release here.
The world is dark… and it’s creepy
It’s hard to stay motivated when the world is an actual cemetery. The aerial shots of an empty Earth are continuing to set the dark, eerie tone of the film. This isn’t a film about what we could lose, it’s about whether or not you fight when you’ve lost everything, knowing that you probably won’t get it back. This is our heroes’ trust test: Do you keep fighting, when all is lost?
Some comedic relief: Remember, Rocket’s still alive.
So as not to be too somber, directors Anthony and Joe Russo remind us that Rocket is still with us during the superhero-walk in the Avengers facility. I’m ready for some LOL one-liners to lift the mood.
CAP GETS HIS F*CKING SHIELD BACK.
Hell to the yeah. Let’s do this, Avengers.

The Russo brothers have confirmed that the famous Loki theory circling the internet isn’t true, but that doesn’t mean our God of Mischief still couldn’t have survived another way. Take a peek at the theory and let us know your thoughts.
