In the first Avengers Endgame featurette from Marvel Studios titled ‘We Lost’, the cast and crew discuss their distress post the Infinity War.
Avengers: Infinity War was a heart-wrenching experience for Marvel fans, given the fact that it was the first time when Earth’s Mightiest Superheroes lost. It was the first time when the Avengers had lost a battle unable to withstand the Mad Titan Thanos’ fateful snap.
And because, the Avengers lost and they’re not used to losing, imagine the conquest of those who survived the snap and saw their friends and half of the universe’s population fizzing out. As you might see in your mind, they aren’t doing well. In the first Avengers Endgame featurette from Marvel Studios titled ‘We Lost’, the cast and crew discuss their distress post the Infinity War.
The one minute 53 seconds clip is a reminder of what happened in the last film giving us hopes that tables can still be turned.
The video opens with Robert Downey Jr who plays Iron Man saying, “Imagine if, for the first time, our heroes all lost.” and then we are taken back to events of the war when the Avengers bottled all their strength to fight back Thanos but failed.
“Everyone was doing their best to keep their heads above water, but it’s kind of a losing battle. We lost, and we’re not used to losing. They’ve truly levelled us. Not just literally, but morally and emotionally,” says Chris Evans leading the featurette.
“People are kind of still coming to grips with it,” stated Chris Hemsworth who essays the role of Thor in the films, while Scarlett Johansson long-established that her character Black Widow has come out of the War as “a little bit hardened from what she’s had to go through.”
However, Evans gives us a ray of hope saying, “The good thing is it’s always easier to build people back up after they’ve been broken down. Man, that’s what Marvel is great at doing. It’s that shred of hope everyone’s looking for.”
The video concludes with Downey Jr assuring that fans are yet to witness a last surprise from the Avengers. “I know I said no more surprises, but I was really hoping to pull off one last one.”
Along with the video, Marvel also released 32 new posters from Avengers: Endgame featuring the prominent characters who survived and disintegrated in Infinity War.
The film releases in theaters exactly a month after on April 26.
