WARNING: Spoilers ahead for “Avengers: Infinity War.”
New character posters for “Avengers: Endgame” were released via social media on Tuesday.
In fact, the batch of promo images even includes characters who were apparently killed in “Infinity War,” like Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and,surprisingly enough, Letitia Wright (Shuri) – but posters of the fallen are black and white, while the Avengers still in play are shown in full colour.
Each photo is emblazoned with the tag line, “Avenge the fallen.”
Iron Man eventually makes it back home.
The last time we saw Tony Stark, he was stuck on a powerless space ship. But the most recent “Endgame” trailer revealed that he’ll eventually make it home.
Pepper Potts also survived.
The first trailer for “Endgame” showed Tony sending a message to the love of his life, Pepper Potts.
Captain America is ready to suit up.
“Some people move on,” Captain America said during an “Endgame” teaser. “But not us.”
The Winter Soldier fell victim to the Thanos snap.
Captain America had to watch his oldest and best friend, Bucky, disintegrate in Wakanda.
We may see the Hulk fight another battle.
Bruce Banner had difficulty convincing “the other guy” to fight for him in “Infinity War.” The last time we saw Hulk smashing, it was in the film’s opening scene – but he lost to Thanos, just after the villain managed to decimate the population of Asgard, Thor’s home planet.
Loki was one of the first victims in “Infinity War.”
In one of “Infinity War’s” most heartbreaking moments, Thor’s reformed brother Loki tried to stop Thanos before he could truly begin – but was swiftly choked and killed.
Thor has a score to settle.
After watching Thanos kill his people and his brother, Thor nearly succeeded at avenging them; But he wasn’t able to finish off Thanos, just before the villain snapped his fingers and made half of the universe’s population disappear. In “Endgame,” hopefully, we’ll see Thor aim for the head.
Valkyrie, one of Thor’s major allies, also survived the snap.
“Infinity War” co-director Joe Russo previously confirmed “Thor: Ragnarok” scene-stealer Valkyrie survived the events of “Infinity War” during a Q&A following the movie’s release. She was able to get some Asgardians to safety before Thanos arrived on board for the Infinity stone Loki had in his possession.
Vision, one of the Avengers’ most powerful assets, died a painful death.
Vision’s forehead was host to the mind stone, which Thanos needed to complete his set. So he heroically begged Scarlet Witch, whose powers came from the stone itself, to destroy it.
But Thanos managed to undo Scarlet Witch’s actions using the time stone and dig the mind stone out of Vision’s forehead – so technically, Vision died twice.
Scarlet Witch disappeared just after watching Thanos kill her boyfriend.
She was crouched over Vision’s body when she disintegrated.
Black Widow is sporting a similar hair colour.
Black Widow’s hairstyles have been in constant flux over the course of Marvel’s series of movies. In “Infinity War,” she ditched the signature red for a short, blonde bob as a way to stay undercover.
Hawkeye is back after a brief hiatus.
Hawkeye was last seen in “Captain America: Civil War,” in which he was arrested and detained.
In “Infinity War,” Black Widow briefly explains that Hawkeye took some sort of plea deal, because anything else would have been too hard on his family.
Captain Marvel is ready to join the team.
Captain Marvel hasn’t been seen on Earth since the ’90s.
Nick Fury’s disappearance was revealed in the end credits scene of “Infinity War.”
He managed to get a distress call out to Captain Marvel just before he disappeared.
Spider-Man’s disappearance was one of the film’s most heartbreaking scenes.
Spider-Man uttered a now-iconic line just before he fell victim to Thanos’ snap: “Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.”
Doctor Strange seemed at peace with his own disappearance.
Doctor Strange was able to use the time stone to see “all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict.”
“There was no other way,” he tells Tony, just before he disappears.
Wong is an important supporting character.
Wong, who worked closely with Doctor Strange as a Master of the Mystic Arts, appeared in the beginning of “Infinity War” to help Hulk and Iron Man fend off Thanos’ minions.
Black Panther disappears while trying to help his friend.
“Up,” he tells Okoye, extending his hand to her. “This is no place to die.”
Okoye will want to avenge her king.
Okoye is fiercely loyal to Wakanda; watching her king disappear in front of her will undoubtedly take a toll.
Shuri was previously believed to be alive.
Last summer, Angela Bassett stated that her character, Ramonda (T’Challa and Shuri’s mother), had survived, along with Shuri.
When asked if she had disappeared, Bassett said, “No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, she’s a bright girl there in Wakanda.”
But the new poster depicts Shuri in black and white, along with other characters who we watched disappear, which clearly implies that Shuri is among the fallen.
Mantis was the first of the Guardians of the Galaxy to disappear.
Mantis was almost able to help defeat Thanos by making him sleep, while her teammates worked to steal his gauntlet. But their mission failed.
She was closely followed by Drax.
“Quill?” Drax says as his body disintegrates.
Even Star-Lord disappears.
“Oh man,” Quill mutters, as he watches his body turn to dust.
Back on Earth, Groot also turned to dust.
He reaches out to his best friend and teammate, Rocket, as he disappears.
Rocket is the only Guardian who survived.
Thanos nearly managed to wipe out every single one of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gamora had already been murdered by Thanos.
Thanos and his adopted daughter Gamora travelled to the planet Vormir so he coukd retrieve the soul stone. In order to obtain it, Thanos was told he needed to sacrifice a loved one – and unfortunately for Gamora, she was the only person Thanos has ever loved.
Nebula, though not technically a Guardian, also survived.
We last saw her stranded in space with Tony.
Ant-Man skipped the battles in “Infinity War,” but he’s back.
Scott was on house arrest after the events of “Captain America: Civil War.”
The Wasp disappeared offscreen.
Ant-Man’s partner in crime wasn’t around for the events of “Infinity War,” but it looks like the Wasp fell victim to “the Snappening.”
Falcon disappeared in the jungle of Wakanda.
Just after he turns to dust, War Machine can be seen searching for him and calling out his name.
War Machine fought in the Battle of Wakanda and survived the Snappening.
“Rhodey” will be thrilled whenever his pal Tony manages to get back to Earth.
“Iron Man” fans will be thrilled that Happy Hogan is still around.
Though he doesn’t play a major role in “Infinity War,” Happy has been with the Avengers since the beginning – and it’s fitting that he earned his own poster for the upcoming film.
Notable absences in the batch of posters include Maria Hill, Nick Fury’s right-hand woman; Heimdall, the Asgardian gatekeeper; M’Baku, the leader of the Jabari Tribe; and Nakia, T’Challa’s lover.
