Marvel Releases Special Video To Celebrate Success Of Avengers: Endgame
EVEN THOUGH MARVEL SWORE EVERYONE TO SILENCE, THE COMPANY'S OWN VIDEO CONTAINS HUGE AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILERS.
THERE'S YOUR SPOILER WARNING.
The footage is a pretty big spoiler, but - to be fair - it has been a few weeks now, so presumably most of the people who want to see it have already seen it.
Those of you who haven't, see the above warning.
It is the first piece of official footage that has been released by Marvel since the film came out that actually contains some of the details of what goes on.
The spoiler is that it shows all of the characters that most people saw turned into particles of dust in Avengers: Infinity War, now returned to their former glories.
They all line up near Captain America, who shouts: "Avengers, assemble!"
Remember? That was the name of another film that they made...
Doctor Strange is there, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, it's almost as if they found a way to make it so that they weren't turned into dust, after all...
That ain't where the spoiler train stops for good, either. The video even shows Captain America wielding the mythical hammer Mjolnir. That usually belongs to Thor.
However, in Endgame, Cap brandishes the famous weapon as he gets stuck right in to Thanos and his evil army.
Since it was released, Endgame has been shattering records left right and centre, almost as if it were wielding a folkloric hammer of its own.
Last Saturday saw it smash through the $2 billion mark at the box office. That's just 11 days after it came out. Needless to say that is the quickest that any film has managed the feat.
James Cameron's bizarre borefest Avatar previously held the record at 47 days.
Told you they were smashing records.
The world has spoken. Marvel Studios' #AvengersEndgame is the #1 box office opening of all time.

We've now reached the point where those behind the film have started explaining what goes on a bit more as well.
The Russo Brothers - Joe and Anthony - have been giving interviews explaining some (if not all) of their reasoning and decisions.
For example, Joe has explained why they didn't kill Captain America off, instead allowing him to return to the past to be with his love, Peggy Carter.
Russo explained: "It's not about trying to subvert expectations all the time, even though that comes into it.
"Typically, when you're in a writers' room and you're working through storytelling and somebody says something that feels obvious, you go, 'Well, that's the expectation.' And it's not that we don't always meet expectations, but the job, I think, is to surprise people."
Avengers: Endgame is in cinemas now.
