Avengers Endgame new trailer arrives full of MCU flashbacks

first_imgRocket Raccoon and War Machine better be awesome together in Avengers: Endgame. Marvel Studios The new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, which Marvel Studios released Thursday, offers a few more hints of our next trip to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on April 26.Thanos may have snapped half the population to dust in Avengers: Infinity War, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over.The trailer opens with a stranded-in-space Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recording a message for his Earth-bound fiancee Pepper Potts, reminiscing about his first days as Iron Man and falling in love with her. (Still no sign of Pepper in the current timeline, however.) After the title card, the trailer ends with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) meeting Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), who isn’t fazed by his hammer tricks, as she smirks at the god.”I like this one,” he says, suggesting that the MCU powerhouses will get along just fine. TV and Movies Culture 4 Update: After an uproar over the lack of Danai Gurira’s (Okoye) name in the top billing, Marvel Studios released a new official poster.  It kicks off a series of mostly black-and-white flashbacks to the various Avengers’ past adventures — like Steve Rogers’ pre-Captain America World War 2 life and the now destroyed Asgard — and the Snappening by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Fascinatingly, the only color we see in these parts is red (like the beginning of the first Endgame trailer).Hawkeye/Ronin and Black Widow sport a variety of haircuts in the color shots, hinting at either a fashion crisis or that we’ll be hopping to different points in the timeline. Hawkeye’s flashbacks include a look at him teaching his daughter how to shoot an arrow (presumably before she’s dusted and he goes dark?). Some publications have speculated this could instead be Kate Bishop, Hawkeye’s protege, as Marvel possibly introduces Young Avengers — but if you look closely in trailer at 0:38, there are other Barton family members in the background. Is it impossible to think Marvel would rewrite comic canon for a film? Absolutely not, but signs point to this being where Clint was pre-Snappening. (Quick, someone comb through all the released Endgame footage and let us know how wrong we are!)”The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do, is to start over,” says the late Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) — a line she uttered in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Appropriately enough, we get a shot of Cap carrying her coffin. Marvel Studios We then see Cap, Nebula, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, War Machine, Iron Man (who clearly makes it home) and Black Widow in fancy, matching white Avengers outfits. Could they be preparing for a trip to space … or perhaps these are the rumored fancy suits for a trip to the Quantum Realm? 26 Photos Avengers: Endgame trailer takes you back to the start She should have been up there all this time.

Britains US ambassador resigns after Trump spat

first_imgIn this file photo taken on October 20, 2017 British Ambassador to the US Kim Darroch speaks during an annual dinner of the National Economists Club at the British Embassy in Washington, DC. Britain`s ambassador to Washington Kim Darroch said on July 10, 2019, he was resigning after drawing US President Donald Trump`s ire for criticising his administration in leaked confidential cables to London. `The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like,` Darroch wrote in his resignation letter. `I believe in the current circumstances the responsible course is to allow the appointment of a new ambassador.` AFPBritain’s ambassador to Washington Kim Darroch said Wednesday he was resigning after drawing Donald Trump’s ire for calling the US president “inept” in leaked confidential cables to London.Darroch said in a resignation letter to the Foreign Office that the scandal made it “impossible” for him to continue representing British interests in the United States.Trump has said his administration would no longer “deal” with Darroch.”Since the leak of official documents from this Embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador,” Darroch wrote.”I want to put an end to that speculation. The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like,” he said.”I believe in the current circumstances the responsible course is to allow the appointment of a new ambassador.”Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament moments after Darroch’s resignation that the criticism he faced was “beyond unfair and wrong”.”I think he’s given honourable and good service and he should be thanked for it,” she said.The Mail on Sunday’s publication of Darroch’s cables set off a political firestorm in London and saw Trump launch two successive days of Twitter attacks against the envoy and May.One of the cables called the Trump administration “uniquely disfunctional” and another characterised the US leader as “inept” and “insecure”.Trump tweeted Monday that Darroch “is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him.” He also welcomed the “good news” that Prime Minister Theresa May was stepping down in two weeks.The US leader followed that up on Tuesday by calling “wacky Ambassador” Darroch “a very stupid guy”.The scandal saw Darroch taken off the guest list of a dinner attended by Trump on Monday.He also missed visiting UK Trade Minister Liam Fox’s talks in Washington on Tuesday with the president’s adviser and daughter Ivanka Trump.last_img
