Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have shared their thoughts on the battle awaiting their superhero characters in Avengers: Endgame.
With the fate of some of Marvel’s most loved characters unknown following Thanos’s (Josh Brolin) destruction at the end of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, fans have been given a sneak peek at what’s to come in the new video.
Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, comments that people are still “coming to grips” with what’s happened, and Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson claims her character has become hardened after the fallout from the last film.
Captain America Chris Evans adds that the characters are all doing their best to keep their head above water.
“But it’s kind of a losing battle – we lost and we’re not used to losing,” he said.
“They’ve truly levelled us, not just literally but morally and emotionally…. The good thing is that it’s always easier to build people back up after they’ve been broken down. That’s what Marvel’s great at doing. It’s that shred of hope that everyone is looking for.”
Some of the cast also shared their character posters on social media with the hashtag #AvengersEndgame and the one month countdown, including Evans and Don Cheadle, aka War Machine.
Samuel L. Jackson, who stars as Nick Fury in Marvel’s flicks but isn’t credited as being in the new film, shared the featurette, telling fans: “We’re in the endgame now.” Watch this brand-new featurette from Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame, in theaters in one month.”
The next instalment of the super hero franchise begins showing in theatres around the world on 24 April (19), opening in the U.K. the following day, and in the U.S. on 26 April.
