While no details of the footage were shared on Saturday – although adjectives such as ‘mind-blowing’ and ‘tearjerker’ were thrown about – the new Reddit post provides a detailed synopsis.
The author suggests that Marvel is screening the same 20 minutes at different events, and an earlier screening was held for test audiences in the US.
The author says they ‘took notes’ and goes on to describe, in great detail, how the movie opens and some important dramatic moments.
“The movie opens to the harsh continuous beep of an emergency broadcast over the Marvel Studios logo,” the Redditor writes.
Not only his daughter but the author also continues, “Clint turns to see his two younger sons reduced to ash in front of him,” followed shortly thereafter by his wife.
It has been strongly suggested that Barton losing his family to Thanos’ snap is what causes him to go on a self-imposed exile to Japan.
“Back on Earth,” the author continues, “Wakandans mourn their lost loved ones. We get a pretty emotional sequence there.”
We then see a dream sequence, where Tony Stark imagines his wedding to Pepper Potts. Everyone’s there, ‘including those who were snapped’. But before Pepper can say ‘I do’, she gets reduced to dust as well, and Tony wakes up screaming on Benatar.
We’re now inside the ship, where we see Tony and Nebula bond as they approach certain death. “From here,” the author continues, “we jump into a relatively fun montage of Tony and Nebula passing the time playing paper football and hard at work repairing the Benatar, played to the tune of Dear Mr. Fantasy.”
This sequence has been corroborated by independent reports, as well.
“The montage ends as we cut to New York. Desolate. Shots of looters and protesters. Most of the remaining Avengers are present in the facility, save Thor and Rocket,” the author writes.
We then move to the scene we’ve seen in the trailers and the clips; the one in which Captain Marvel and Thor meet, and the Avengers sense an energy spike.
HYPE AND MORE
Marvel president Kevin Feige has said that the marketing will be restricted to the opening 20-30 minutes of the film.
“As was the case with a lot of our films, this one, in particular, being able to generate a lot of excitement without giving away one of the many, many, many secrets. I think the Disney marketing team is the best in the world and we’ll be able to pull it off,”
Avengers: Endgame is scheduled for an April 26 release in India.
