On Friday, December 7, Marvel Studios dropped the long-awaited first trailer for the conclusion to the current iteration of the Avengers series. At the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos snapped his fingers and used the Infinity Gauntlet to reduce half the population of the universe to dust. Needless to say, that leaves our fearless heroes in a pretty tight spot...

The trailer sees Captain America and Black Widow ready to pursue a last course of action while Tony Stark prepares for death by suffocation in deep space. The trailer is a gloomy one, and fans online were feeling the hurt.

For the best fans in the Universe.
This trailer is for you...
With much love and gratitude for your patience,
Some of the films stars also sounded off on the trailer's release.

One of the trailers most memorable moments came right at the end, when Scott Lang, the Ant-Man (who many fans believe holds the key to defeating Thanos due to his access to the Quantum Zone), arrives at the deserted Avengers compound.
