SALT LAKE CITY — First, people said that we’d get the “Avengers 4” trailer on Monday. Then, they said Wednesday. But now it’s Friday, and it’s finally here.
What’s going on: Marvel has finally released the first trailer for the upcoming Avengers 4 movie.
- The title of the fourth installment will be "Avengers: Endgame."

The trailer reveals very little about the actual plotline, which has been kept a highly guarded secret by Marvel and the Russo brothers, The Verge reported. There are a few takeaways though.
