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.



Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, the movie's directors, sent fans a message on Friday:

For those who have been here since the beginning.
For those who have joined along the way.
For the best fans in the Universe.
This trailer is for you...
With much love and gratitude for your patience,
The RB's

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.




Of course, many Twitter users used jokes to hide their pain.

The posters for the new film look suitably exciting.


The trailer also revealed the film's official title!


Fans are both excited for and terrified of this final movie, which seems to be ramping up to a finale that will leave us all devastated. What will the world be like after The Avengers: Endgame?

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
