‘Avengers: Endgame’ Super Bowl clip sees Steve Rogers grieving over fallen mates, Rocket Raccoon in original costume

Published

on

Anything can happen at the Super Bowl, and this time it was the release of a brief 40-second clip from Marvel’s last installation in the ‘Avengers’ series, ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The clip for the movie dropped during the Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, among a range of trailers of several new movies coming out this year.

The trailer picks up from where ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ had left off, as we see Steve Rogers grieving at the deaths of multiple of his comrades who were made to disappear by Thanos. The opening scene of the clip shows Rogers (played by Chris Evans) sitting among his surviving friends, as we already know his two closest mates, Bucky Barnes, and Sam Wilson were literally turned to dust by Thanos.

As Rogers sits in what seems to be an empty locker room in the stadium, we hear him say, “Some people move on, but not us.” What is interesting about this particular shot in the clip is that Rogers’ words come immediately after a shot where we see a frame on the wall that has “Where do we go, now that they’re gone?” written on it. This clearly indicates the basic premise, the movie is about to weave itself around – with almost all the major Avengers gone, what will Captain America and the rest do now?

The answer is probably, cope with it and fight back. Immediately after we hear Rogers talking about not moving on, the frame shifts towards Natasha (a.k.a Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson) who is seen furiously practicing shooting a target. This subtle indication that each Avenger is dealing with the loss of their friends in their own way can be said will be a major theme.

Just like Rogers and Natasha, the one other character who lost almost everyone he loves was Rocket Raccoon. As literally the last surviving member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, we only get to see a glimpse of Rocket Raccoon in the clip, but there is an interesting catch here.

It seems Rocket Raccoon has a whole new look, and it might just be straight out of the comic book. Rocket is wearing some sort of blue jacket with piping down one side and red patterns running across it, as well as long gloves that run all the way up to his elbows, an outfit which his character was seen wearing in the 2008 comic that was a relaunch headed by writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

The costume was designed by Tim Green and it seems that with the Avengers series finally coming to a close, Raccoon’s costume is a miniature tribute to the comic that made it all happen. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ opens in theaters April 26th. Check out the official trailer below.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
