Watch This New 'Avengers: Endgame' Trailer While You Try to Buy Tickets (Video) It looks like Marvel Studios decided to drop one last big tease for "Avengers: Endgame" on us while they put tickets up for sale at the wee hours of the morning — and, yes, since we're based in Los Angeles, this is a hella early time for us to have to care about buying anything. Thus far we're not having much luck actually procuring tickets as all the sellers are swamped — no surprise, since this is probably the most anticipated movie maybe ever — but this trailer, which lasts one minute, is quite a doozy.

Avengers : Endgame is already breaking records . Disney on Saturday announced that the first trailer for the highly anticipated Marvel installment broke the record for most views in 24 hours across its platforms.

Avengers : Infinity War is the third Avengers film and the nineteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), released six years after the first Avengers film and ten years after the first MCU film.

“Avengers: Infinity War” set the North American record a year ago for top domestic opening with $257.7 million during April 27-29, topping the 2015 mark held by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by nearly $10 million.

“The overwhelming demand is what’s caused this temporary problem,” noted Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with Comscore. “There would not be a problem with a movie that only a few people wanted to see.”

“Avengers: Endgame” stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper, and Josh Brolin. It’s a direct sequel to “Avengers: Infinity War.” Both were directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

'Fortnite' and 'Avengers: Endgame' are teaming up for a crossover event.
While the finer points of the event -- likely a special, limited game mode -- are still unknown, it will apparently kick off Thursday.
