Warn: This tale contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War . strong>
Sometimes a news conference is like a news conference. But it’s not often a monumental that perforates you right in the heart.
On Sunday, Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame news conference held in Los Angeles reminded us of exactly how many of our MCU comrades have fallen, by leaving chairs empty among the stars.
Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo, alongside stars Brie Larson, Chris Evans and Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr ., Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, and more took to their labelled places on stage.
But as you can see, half the chairs were left empty to represent those who were snarled into oblivion following the conclusion of Infinity War . It’s too much.
Harold “Happy” Hogan himself, Jon Favreau, introduces the stunt before hosting the conference.
“Clearly, things appear a little different in a post- Infinity War Marvel Cinematic Universe, ” he told reporters. “Post-snap there’s a few empty seats.”
It’s a somewhat Stark( sorry) reminder of how many of our Avenger friends we’ve lost to that giant purple schmuck, Thanos. Gimmicky, but truly effective.
We were still getting over the posters Marvel released in March, which reminded us precisely who was alive and dead applying a simple black and white filter. At least it’s handy to know where we stand.
