If you’re like me, you spent yesterday squealing “Avengers: Endgame LEGOs!” in the middle of Target as you rushed past women and children with your eyes closed because what if the boxes have spoilers? (My life is dope.) But because I lack the slightest whiff of willpower, I looked at every box. Every single one. I even ducked over to the action figure aisle, which was brimming with Avengers: Endgame characters in their spiffy new outfits.
While my sweet toy excursion was thankfully spoiler-free, one thing was very clear: Marvel is done being coy about the obvious fact that The Avengers get back together and take the fight to Thanos, so naturally, they dropped a brand new Avengers: Endgame trailer that showcases exactly that.
In the meantime, remember when a bunch of online wienerbabies thought it’d be a smart idea to not only bet against a Marvel movie making money because the lead character has an innie instead of an outie, but also predicted that her movie full of cooties would torpedo Endgame’s box office?
About that. Via Deadline:
Avengers: Endgame tickets went on sale today with Atom Tickets reporting that in the first hour, the Marvel movie has set a record for the mobile ticket retailer. To date, Avengers: Endgame has sold three times more tickets on Atom in the first hour of pre-sales than Avengers: Infinity War did last year.
Of course, what’s truly amazing about this latest trailer and the ticket frenzy that followed is there isn’t even a single shot that suggests real fans will get what they want: Ant-Man killing Thanos through the butt. Why else are people even going to this thing? To see Iron Man and Captain America becomes friends again? Jesus Christ. They practically hugged and promised to text each other at the end of Civil War. I’ve had worse fights with Domino’s.
