AS if we couldn’t get more hyped for the grandest (and final?) Avengers movie, a new teaser trailer has just been revealed, featuring the whole team suiting up while Captain America gives them the ceremonial pep talk.
Even though Avengers: Endgame will bring the original Avengers together with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and the where-have-you-been pair of Hawkeye and Captain Marvel, much of the advertising for the film have suggested that the characters will once again split up into smaller groups with their own specific missions.
We all know how Thanos easily beat the Avengers in Infinity War and wiped out half of the universe. Now, the few heroes left have one last shot at redemption against the Mad Titan in Endgame. But they’re going to need a plan to end all plans if they want to succeed. One of those plans involves them wearing matching outfits, apparently.
You may have noticed it by now, but the Avengers look like they won’t be using their uniquely personal uniforms this time. Every trailer has shown the team wearing matching white outfits. These, apparently have a little more significance than just aesthetics.
“Obviously anything that goes into the trailers is really well considered,” director Joe Russo said in an interview with io9. “And whatever people want to take away from that, they can take away from that.”
Obviously, that tells us nothing, which is exactly how sneaky Marvel wants it. Although there have been some online buzz since the end of Infinity War suggesting that the white suits could have something to do with the Avengers going into the Quantum Realm with Ant-Man’s help. But if you ask Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, there’s a little more meaning and context to what the matching suits symbolize.
“We call them the team suits,” Feige said. “And we early on decided [revealing them] was a big differentiating factor between [Endgame] and the other films. The Avengers have never had matching outfits before, [so] we thought it was a very intriguing image to see something that made this film feel new.”
Of course, this also shows a more team-centric approach to the way they’re going to dismantle Thanos and take away the Infinity Gauntlet from him. This time, there’s no personal motivation that should ruin it. (We’re looking at you Star-Lord.)
Feige further explained that Disney and Marvel found it a little taxing to market the movie as “more than just a simple sequel.”
“[We had to] make it feel more than just Infinity War II. Because it’s not,” he added. “Those team suits add something fresh to it. As does Hawkeye, as does Captain Marvel. As does Scott Lang.”
Avenger: Endgame premieres on April 24 here in the Philippines.
