Screaming into the void is about all some of us can do to contain our excitement.
"Avengers: Endgame" is only one month away. 30/31 sleeps. AMC recently released the run time of 3 hours and 2 minutes, a long but perhaps fitting culmination of the last ten years and 22 Marvel films.
As opening weekend draws nearer, stars of the film are releasing promotional posters which feature their characters with a very serious 'gotta save the world' face. But the most surprising (not really) of the posters are the ones that feature characters we previously thought to be dead.
Let's take this moment of silence to mourn for all the heroes we lost in the snap: Black Panther, Shuri, Star-Lord, Groot, Gamora, Mantis, Drax, Dr. Strange, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Bucky Barnes, Loki, Heimdall, Falcon, Spider-Man, Hope Pym, Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne, Maria Hill and Nick Fury.
Me from a year ago was upset, turns out I'm not over it:
Some of the posters being released include Loki:
As you can see, the dead characters are in black and white and our current heroes are in color. WE SEE YOU MARVEL.
So what does this mean for the future of our favorite heroes? It seems unlikely that they will all stay in their current consciousness states, as it were. Many who have died will likely come back and some who managed to survive the snap likely won't make it into the next phase of Marvel films.
Here's lookin' at you, Cap.
One BIG question remains: When the heck are tickets going on sale?!
"Avengers: Endgame" premieres April 26.
