With just over a week to go, the latest trailer for Avengers: Endgame has landed online, taking viewers on a guided tour through the superhero franchise to date.

Several of the core members of the superhero team have their journeys refreshed in the early part of the trailer, using footage from their solo movies across the history of the decade-long Marvel Cinematic Universe project. Spare a thought though for Ed Norton, as the clip representing his unloved MCU entry The Incredible Hulk actually shows Mark Ruffalo’s incarnation instead.

This is followed by a montage of every Marvel movie, culminating in Vision’s statement that “a thing isn’t beautiful because it lasts” and Doctor Strange’s foreboding warning that “we’re in the endgame now”.

The final moments of the trailer feature footage from Endgame as the remaining Avengers pool their resources ahead of a final confrontation with the genocidal titan Thanos.

Endgame is one of the most highly anticipated movies in history, with one service claiming that more than one per cent of the entire British population has already booked a ticket.

Through ticket service Atom Tickets, Endgame sold more than twice as many tickets in its first week as Aquaman, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Avengers: Infinity War and Captain Marvel combined.

The film will bring together all of Marvel’s heroes and is set to serve as a culmination of the third phase of releases in a franchise that is reportedly already laid out for the next five years.
