The studios also released the first trailer for the film, in which Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow character explains that Thanos really did erase half the population. "Avengers: Infinity War" ended on that cliffhanger as many of Marvel's superheroes dissolved into the air. It went on to become the highest grossing film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with over $2 billion in ticket sales.
Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo "Avengers: Endgame" will also now debut in North American theaters a week earlier on April 26, 2019.
