New Avengers: Endgame Spot Reveals a Possible Mistake by Thanos

Stop reading right now if you want to know as little as possible about Avengers: Endgame. We are well aware that every new trailer and TV spot could potentially give you more information than you really want. Then again, Marvel is expert at giving you bits and pieces to satisfy your craving without really telling you much of anything.

Still here? Great, let’s take a look at the new TV spot, which has a few bits of new footage and hints at a potential Thanos blunder.

“We found something,” Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) says at the outset. “A chance. Maybe.”

It seems that the Mad Titan may have committed an unforced error. This might just give the surviving Avengers a chance. Granted, this could very well be yet more misdirection by the Russo Brothers and Marvel around the plot of Endgame. The broad strokes were obvious from the moment Infinity War ended: the survivors would try to find a way to resurrect their friends and the billions of other people who were wiped out by the Thanos snap. It’s always been the “how” that we’ve wondered about. That’s what has fueled a thousand and one theories, and it’s what makes this TV spot interesting.

Thanos used the full force of the collected Infinity Stones to wipe out half of the living creatures in the universe. The new TV spot suggests that Thanos uses the Infinity Stones again, after the battle. This—we’re speculating now—gives the Avengers his location. This is what leads Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) to cavalierly suggest they simply go after the stones and destroy Thanos in the process.

We won’t have to wait long to find out if this is indeed how the Avengers the Mad Titan. Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.
