Captain Marvel and Thor, Those Haircuts and More: 6 'Endgame' Trailer Moments Blowing Up Twitter
Marvel
Revisit the 'Captain Marvel' Red Carpet Premiere

Here's why Danai Gurira and other moments began trending after the new trailer dropped.

UPDATE at 12:45pm PT: After Danai Gurira began trending over her name being left off the top of the "Endgame" poster, Marvel released an updated version, adding, "She should have been up there all this time."

Marvel dropped a brand new trailer for "Avengers: Endgame" early Thursday morning, finally giving us our first full look at the new lineup of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

After half of our super-friends -- and the world with them -- were turned to dust with the snap of Thanos' fingers in "Infinity War," a new gang has formed. Its members: Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk (or at least Bruce Banner), Black Widow, Rocket, War Machine, Ant-Man, Hawkeye (as Ronin), Nebula and, yes, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, making her Avengers debut.

With the new footage comes plenty of new questions and surprises, both of which are blowing up Twitter in the new trailer's wake. Here's what everyone can't stop talking about.

Captain Marvel + Thor

Obviously, the big moment in this sneak peek is the interaction between Thor and Captain Marvel. Anyone who saw the latter's solo movie (in theaters now), know it (SPOILER ALERT) ends with a current day post-credits scene showing her answering Nick Fury's page.

After popping up at Avengers HQ, it's clear she makes a good impression on the God of Thunder, who says -- after grabbing his axe -- "I like this one." Imagine these two together? Yeah, Thanos is in serious trouble.

Tony's Back on Earth

There really wasn't much question that Iron Man and Nebula would find their way back to Earth to join up with the rest of the gang, but this new trailer confirms it.

Previous sneak peeks showed them stranded in space, where Tony left dire voicemails for Pepper, but the footage here shows them all suited up at Avengers HQ. Phew. The big question now: will he survive the movie?

Those New Suits

Speaking of Tony and Nebula, when we see them reunited with the other superheroes, they're all decked out in brand new, matching white suits.

The main theory online for these upgraded outfits: they're Quantum Realm suits with a color scheme similar to the one Hank Pym wore when he rescued Janet from the quantum realm. Why are they wearing them? Most guesses point to time travel, in a mission to prevent the snap from ever happening.

One other question: How did Scott get out of the quantum realm by himself?!

Some Surprising New 'Dos

It wouldn't be an Avengers movie without a new hairdo for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, but she's not the only one rocking an updated look.

While Widow's hair goes from "Infinity War" blonde to red ombre in the footage, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye also goes through a transformation. After being seen with his daughter -- more on her in a minute -- with a regular dad 'do, he's later spotted with a edgy mohawk. His makeover doesn't have great implications for his family, as many assume Clint Barton becomes his Ronin alter-ego after losing them in the snap.

Kate Bishop

There's additional footage of Hawkeye that really riled up the internet this morning, as he's seen on his family's farm giving archery lessons to a young woman. While his daughter's name is Lila in the MCU, the name "Kate Bishop" began trending after the trailer dropped. In the comics, Kate is a young archer who comes under the mentorship of Clint, joining the Young Avengers alongside the offspring of other superheroes.

The current theories: Either this is Kate or Lila could be taking on Kate's storyline and, if that's the case, a cinematic version of the Young Avengers could be coming. While we have a feeling Clint's family won't survive the snap, chances are she (and everyone else who vanished) will be back.

Where's Okoye?

While Danai Gurira is featured on the new poster for "Endgame," she's the only pictured star whose name isn't above the marquee. She also doesn't appear in any new footage throughout the sneak peek and only pops up briefly in a black and white clip from "Infinity War."

After watching Black Panther disintegrate in front of her eyes, does she simply stay in Wakanda? That seems like a waste of her skills to us.

Here's how Twitter reacted to Danai being MIA from both the trailer and top billing on the poster:

"Avengers: Endgame" hits theaters April 26.
