The alarm bells are ringing too loud. Avengers: Endgame trailer 2 has created a whole new level of buzz it needed and for all the right reasons. We have to hand it to them. These guys know how to make a trailer. Even when it is taking a lot of time and energy to gulp down the sheer awesomeness of the surprise trailer itself, new facts about the trailer keep peeking their head over the surface, facts that reveal just how meticulous and well-planned Marvel Cinematic Universe’s strategy is.
The newest reveal shows us that the Avengers: Endgame trailer had a massive throwback to one of the most iconic scenes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Presenting – Avengers: Endgame trailer reveals stunning Captain America Winter Soldier Easter egg!!!
Apart from people shipping Captain Marvel and Thor together and the new advanced ‘High Tech’ Red and white suits that the Avengers are wearing, the latest reveal is about one of the scenes involving the one and only Captain America – Super Soldier and leader of the Avengers. The scene in question takes us back years ago to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger, where Steve Rogers visits Peggy Carter, now old and frail, when she gives him some words of supreme wisdom. She says and we quote:
“The world has changed. None of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes the best that we can do is to start over.”
The question is – why did Marvel Studios choose the very same line in the Avengers: Endgame trailer as well? Is there supposed to be a deeper meaning to all this? If yes, what could it be??
There could be multiple reasons behind all this. Maybe with half the world’s population now dead after the infamous Thanos Snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, it is still hard for the surviving half to move on. But they have to. Captain America was literally frozen in the depths of the Arctic Ocean when the World around him once changed and he was helpless to stop it from happening. This time as well, the world has changed and yet again, he is helpless. No matter how hard he tries, the World around him, his friend’s his family, his loved ones; they all go away. That must be excruciatingly painful to live through for even once. Captain America has been through that twice in a row!
The scene where they show Hawkeye and the loss he has suffered at the hands of the Mad Titan, with his hands joining Black Widow’s as the words “Start Over” echo in this distance might mean two things – either Hawkeye and Black Widow will finally become a couple, something the Marvel fans had long hoped for, or there is going to be a time travel element involved, hence the word “Start Over”.
With the Quantum Realm and the Time Stone now showing that travelling back and forth in time is no more just a theory but can be materialized into action, this theory might not just be a theory anymore and could end up as a reality.
Many believe that the reason Peggy Carter’s line was involved in the Avengers: Endgame trailer is because Captain America, while traveling through time, will meet the young Peggy Carter again and the movie will reveal to us a heart-warming reunion of the first official MCU couple.
Steve Rogers never had the chance to say a proper goodbye to Peggy and the latter also never got an opportunity to profess her love for the Super Soldier. Maybe, this time fate has intertwined their strings beyond the fabric of time and space. We will know for sure when Avengers: Endgame hits the screens next month.
Avengers: Endgame is set for release on the 26th of April, 2019. The official film synopsis of the movie has been recently released and it states:
“After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.”
