The trailer for Avengers: Endgame finally arrived to break hearts on Friday, and reactions have been strong, with people mourning the loss of Steve’s beard, digging Hawkeye’s makeover, and realizing how important Ant-Man is going to be. Since Friday, the trailer has gone on to break the record for the most views in 24 hours, and it’s also continued to inspire jokes. But we’ll get to the jokes in a minute, because we need to talk about Shuri.
We never saw Black Panther’s adorable genius little sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) disintegrate on-screen during Infinity War, but we didn’t see her not disintegrate either, which left people wondering if she survived the Snappening — er, the “Decimation” — and threatening to throw hands if she didn’t. Presumably, Banner is looking at the pictures of people who are missing, not necessarily dead, since no one back on Earth saw Spider-Man disintegrate, nor did they know Ant-Man was stranded in the Quantum Realm when Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym succumbed to the snap.
Our guess is Shuri will show up later in the movie, based on a statement made by Angela Bassett, who plays her mother, Queen Ramonda. Back in July, Bassett was asked if Ramonda died after the snap. She told Screen Rant, “No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, she’s a bright girl there in Wakanda. So…”
Speaking of old interviews, Michael Douglas (who plays Hank Pym) dropped a big potential spoiler back in October when he said, “The Quantum Realm, that’s the key. That’s the key. The Quantum Realm plays an important part in all the next chapters, I think, of the Marvel films.”
Somehow, Ant-Man was able to bring himself back from the Quantum Realm, which has huge implications for Endgame. He may even save the galaxy:
People on Twitter were happy to see him:
Well, that’s one way to stop Thanos. Here’s another…
