Avengers 4: Earth's heroes prepare for final assault on Thanos in first trailer for 'Endgame'

Thanos (Josh Brolin) got one peaceful victory sunset, but based on the first trailer for the fourth Avengers movie, his life is about to get very, very stressful. Officially titled Avengers: Endgame (we finally know the title, you guys!), the upcoming superhero film from the Russo Brothers finds the surviving heroes from Infinity War planning a massive assault on the Mad Titan.

They're not doing it for their health, either. If you recall, Thanos wiped out half of all life in the universe with the snap of his fingers, using the power of all six Infinity Stones. Among his victims were T'Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Groot (Vin Diesel), and *sniff* Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland).

Watch as the remaining characters plot their revenge in the trailer below, or as Cap (Chris Evans) puts it, "This is the fight of our lives."

Compared to out-and-out craziness of Infinity War, Endgame's trailer keeps things kinda low-key. Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) is floating out in the middle of space with limited oxygen, leaving a message to Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow); Captain America found time to shave; Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is recruiting Hawkeye; Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) look solemn. Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) is not featured, and Thanos is pretty much nowhere to be seen, except for the brief shots of his armor-based scarecrow and him walking through a field, the damaged Infinity Gauntlet prominently featured.

As you can also see, the heroes missing in Infinity War—Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)—are properly represented here. Scott Lang got trapped in the Quantum Realm at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp (GUYS?!), while Hawkeye, like Scott, was under house arrest after the events of Captain America: Civil War, so he could spend more time with his family. He's back now, though, rocking his comic-accurate Ronin gear.

Here's the first poster, too:

Noticeably missing is Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), who makes her onscreen debut in early March. Marvel dropped a second trailer for Captain Marvel earlier this week, but it'll definitely be overshadowed by Endgame's. In any case, she'll help defeat Thanos after a distress call from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

Written by the returning duo of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Avengers: Endgame will actually arrive April 26, a nice surprise seeing as it was meant to open May 3.
