As you can see, there’s a noticeable gap between Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, and Don Cheadle’s War Machine. It doesn’t make sense that the framing would leave such a noticeable character-sized hole in the shot, so fans are already speculating which character may have been digitally removed to keep ‘s secrets intact.
One of the most obvious choices to be in the above shot is Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers will be making her live-action debut in just months before arrives in theaters. Her presence on the upcoming battle agains Thanos was teased in the final moment of , with Nick Fury managing to contact her before fading away to dust. Captain Marvel has been teased as the most powerful hero yet, and the Avengers are going to need the big guns when going back into battle with the Mad Titan.
Another likely option is Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon. After Thanos destroyed half the galaxy with the snap of a finger, Rocket was the only members of the Guardians left standing. He appeared briefly in the new trailer, although it’s unclear how he’ll factor into the narrative, or get along with anyone other than Thor. The Russo Brothers likely want to keep this ambiguous, and perhaps cut him out for that reason.
There’s another shot in the trailer that seems to be missing a body, although Rocket is accounted for. Check it out below.
In this group shot in the Avengers hanger, there is another gap at the end of the line. Between the silhouettes of War Machine and Rocket, there seems to be enough space for another body. Could this be the same character left out of the first shot? Only time will tell, but Marvel Studios has been known to purposefully throw audiences off the trail.
The Russo Brothers have teased that the marketing material for would only be from the first 15 minutes or so of the film. So while fans will speculate and theorize over each and every frame from the trailers, we’re likely going to be mostly surprised by the film’s contents once it finally arrives in theaters.
