That moment when Thanos had snapped his finger wearing the Infinity Stones on the gauntlet at the climax of Avengers Infinity War, every theatre around the world, every fan who saw it for the first time, there was a sudden look of shock and noise of a gasp. As people walked out of theatres, they had tears in their eyes, just as our favourite and original Avengers did on the big screen when they realised that there friends were gone…dusted…dead!
The last few months have been particularly troubling, full of anticipation, eagerness, fan theories and more. Finally, we have it. The first trailer of Avengers: End Game. We can finally put those fan theories to rest and start figuring out new ones because there is a lot that the first trailer of Avengers 4 has given us to speculate.
Here are 6 major plot points revealed in Avengers: End Game trailer
1. Hawkeye and Ant-Man are alive
For months fans had speculated that Hawkeye and Ant-Man didn’t get dusted with the snap by Thanos. One was confirmed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, when we saw Scott Lang being stuck in the Quantum Realm while Hank Pymm and his family got dusted. Now, we know that even Clint Barton aka Hawkeye is alive as well as he makes a prominent appearance in the trailer. This reiterates the fact that the original Avengers, i.e., Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow are all alive and will take the fight to Thanos.

2. Hawkeye becomes Ronin
Jeremy Renner’s appearance probably got the largest applause when he appeared in the Avengers: End Game trailer. However, he wasn’t seen in his usual uniform, rather with a Japanese Katana sword instead of just his bow and arrow. He also had a unusual haircut. This begs the speculation that has been going on for a while that like in the comics, Hawkeye has in fact become Ronin. In one of the comic storylines, Hawkeye goes on to be called Ronin after he loses his family. Ronin dresses in Black and Yellow, carries a Katana and literally murders bad guys in his state of rage. However, don’t be surprised if by the end of the climax fight, Ronin gives up his new found uniform and goes back to wearing the Hawkeye one when they fight Thanos.
3. Ant-Man was not saved by the Avengers
At the end credits of the trailer, we see Scott Lang knock at the door of the Avengers facility. However, earlier in the trailer we see Bruce Banner going through the missing person’s list and Scott’s face is on it. So, it is fair to say that the Avengers thought that Ant-Man also got dusted like the rest. However, his return in the end proves one point – the fan theories were wrong. The Avengers don’t assist Ant-Man in getting him out of the Quantum Realm, rather there is a different storyline to it which we will probably get to see in the upcoming trailer and TV spots.
4. Shuri was also dusted
When Bruce Banner was going through the missing persons’ list, there was Scott Lang, Peter Parker and in a blink and miss, there was also Shuri, T’Challa’s sister and the princess of Wakanda. Clearly both brother and sister got dusted. Now, the theory that in the absence of both T’Challa and Soori, Umbaku ascends to the throne of Wakanda until the return of the king will gather a lot of steam.

5. Tony Stark and Nebula are together
While the trailer makes you believe that Tony Stark is all by himself when he is recording an emotional message for his lady love Pepper Potts, it seems like he is adrift in space by himself in a spacecraft. But later we also get close-up shots of Nebula. If you remember, it was only Tony and Nebula left on Titan after Thanos snapped his finger. So, don’t feel that Tony is by himself. Nebula is very much with him contrary to what the makers of the trailer would have you believe. In fact, there is a blink and miss shot of Nebula putting her hand on Tony’s shoulder. Check it out.
6. Thanos has become a farmer like in the comics
In the infinity Wars storyline in Marvel Comics, Thanos becomes a farmer after he snaps his finger and kills half the living being in the universe. He is at peace and wants to live out his days ploughing his fields. In the trailer too we see his hand atop his crops and see his armour hanging as a scarecrow amidst the crop field. So, it looks like the MCU is taking the comicbook storyline after all.
