Marvel Studios dropped a new Avengers: Endgame spot during Sunday’s Super Bowl trailer. And ever since, fans have been poring over the footage, looking for new details.
Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl Trailer
But there is one detail many have missed. The beginning of the trailer featured flashes of many heroes who died during the Infinity War. No one can blame people for not catching it. The flashes- ten in total- but 13 characters in all. It all happened in quick successions in under a second before Marvel logo comes up. It’s an incredible opening, with each character’s appearance coming from other films they’ve appeared in.
While it’s unclear what those flashes mean, it wouldn’t surprise us if there’s a meaning behind it. Although it would be really cool, if not somber reminder of everything that’s dusted. But if you weren’t able to notice this, don’t worry. We’ve made a breakdown of all fallen heroes appearing in Avengers: Endgame footage.
