- The first trailer for “Avengers 4,” titled “Endgame,” was released on Friday.
- In a quick scene, Bruce Banner is looking at missing people and a photo of Shuri pops up, hinting at her possible death in “Infinity War.”
- But the “missing” label doesn’t necessarily mean she’s dead.
- The movie will hit theatres in April 2019.
The “Avengers: Endgame” trailer is finally here, and it shows some of the missing characters following the events of “Infinity War.”
Bruce Banner is shown staring at images of people who are labelled “missing” following Thanos’ snap at the end of the last “Avengers” movie, which, as Black Widow notes, “wiped out 50% of all living creatures.” Photos of Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and Shuri appear before Shuri’s picture changes into one of Peter Parker, whom fans know disintegrated.
But the missing label under Shuri doesn’t necessarily mean she disintegrated in Thanos’ snap.
In an interview with ScreenRant back in July, actress Angela Bassett, who plays Ramonda in “Black Panther,” was asked about whether she believed her character disappeared with her son, T’Challa.
“No,” Bassett said. “Neither did my daughter. Shuri, she’s a bright girl there in Wakanda.”
Bassett may not have been telling the truth, but Shuri could still be alive. As a tech genius, Shuri could be keeping herself and the rest of the Wakandan survivors hidden. The “missing” label could be a red herring to make fans think Shuri died at the end of “Infinity War.”
Additionally, Scott is listed as “missing” in that same scene, but he appears at the Avengers headquarters in the final moments of the trailer.
“Is anyone home?” Scott asks a camera as Captain America and Black Widow watch the screen. “This is Scott Lang. We met a few years ago at the airport [a reference to “Captain America: Civil War”] in Germany. I got really big.”
“Is this an old message?” Cap asks Black Widow.
“That’s the front door,” she responds.
“Can you buzz me in?” Scott asks.
So if Scott’s not missing, that means that the surviving Avengers don’t have all of the information on everyone’s whereabouts. Shuri could easily be hiding in Wakanda, working on a way to fix the events of “Infinity War.”
Fans will know what happened to Shuri and everyone else when “Avengers 4” hits theatres on April 26, 2019.
