The countdown is on for “Avengers: Endgame.” After news broke yesterday that the runtime would top at 182 minutes, the longest for any Marvel film thus far, the studio also capped the day with brand new character posters that show the fury and the fallen, along with a brand-new featurette.
With the first official screenings set to begin April 22 and April 23 in Los Angeles and New York, and a heavy embargo in place until Tuesday, April 23 at 6:00 pm Eastern, the anticipation is palpable.
The history of Marvel Studios at the box office has been one that any studio can dream. When it comes to awards, since 2008, and up until this year at the 91st ceremony, have they found gold on the Dolby Theatre stage.
Nine films in the MCU have garnered nominations in the Best Visual Effects category. “Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2,” “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Doctor Strange,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
The MCU has also shown strength in other technical categories such as sound editing and makeup and hairstyling. “Black Panther” made history earlier this year winning three Academy Awards for Production Design, Costume Design, and Original Score.
With the new posters released, we see the living and “dead” from the previous film but one of the surprising “deaths” seems to be Shuri, as played by Letitia Wright. Is she really gone? Did she disappear or did she die upon trying to save Vision before his own death?
“Avengers: Endgame” opens in theaters on April 26.
