AVENGERS: ENDGAME Director Joe Russo Reveals That His Daughter Has A Secret Role In The Movie

Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo has revealed that his daughter Ava will have a "secret role" in Marvel Studios' upcoming superhero epic. Could she be playing a significant character, perhaps?

Joe Russo has made cameo appearances in a couple of Marvel Studios movies, and it looks like his daughter Ava is set to follow in his footsteps.

The Avengers: Endgame co-director revealed that Ava will appear in the Infinity War follow-up, but he wouldn't share any more details. "This is my daughter Ava, who's actually playing a secret role in Avengers: Endgame," Russo told reporters while chatting on the red carpet of the Captain Marvel premiere. "We're not talking about what it is yet. That's it and that's all you're going to know."

The most popular fan theory is that Ava could be portraying an older take on Clint Barton's daughter Lila, and a closer inspection of the trailer does appear to confirm that she's playing the mysterious young woman Hawkeye is giving archery lessons to - but is that his daughter, or Kate Bishop?

What do you guys think? Drop us a comment down below, and check out our breakdown of the new Avengers: Endgame trailer.

"Seems Like A Thousand Years Ago..."

Nkdexfp0 o

This trailer was always going to trade heavily on nostalgia, and it opens with some flashbacks to the pre-Avengers lives of Tony Stark, Steve Rogers and Thor, while the narration keeps us up to speed with current events as the heroes deal with the fallout of "The Decimation."

This is a great way to put across what a huge milestone this movie is while also managing to avoid giving too much away.

Kate Bishop?

Vssxyclv o

One of the apparent flashbacks is new, however, as we see Clint Barton giving a mysterious young woman an archery lesson.

There's a lot of speculation that Kate Bishop (who Hawkeye mentors in the comics) might be introduced in Endgame, and there's a chance this is her - although it may also be Barton's eldest daughter.

Either way, it's suggested that whatever happens to her - not to mention the rest of his family - drives him to Japan under the mantle of Ronin.

Not Us

Lkmtiix4 o

We get glimpses of some of the heroes that ceased to exist after The Snap, as the surviving Avengers (love the hair, 'Tasha) struggle to come to terms with losing their friends - not to mention half of all life in the universe.

It's clear that Cap, Widow, Thor and co. have no intention of moving on, as we see a visibly shaken Scott Lang attamept to piece together what happened. It's suggested in the previous teaser that he will eventually give the others the hope they've been searching for.

Rocket And War Machine

Tufrn3gd o

Yes, this one brief shot of Rocket Raccoon on War Machine's shoulder deserves its own special mention.

Really, it's not too surprising that the weapon-obsessed Guardians of the Galaxy would gravitate towards the Avenger with the biggest guns. These guys definitely have the potential to be a very entertaining double-act, but the Thor/Rabbit tandem is going to take some beating.

Whatever It Takes

Hgx72plv o

A sentiment repeated several times in the trailer; it's very clear that the surviving heroes are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice if it means reversing the catastrophic effects of the Infinity Stones.

Of course, we already know they're going to be successful (unless all of those upcoming Marvel sequels are actually prequels), but there's a very good chance not all of them will live long enough to see their dusted pals again.

Final Battle

Dweltzz0 o

There are a few shots towards the end of the trailer that might just hint at the setting for The Avengers' final showdown with Thanos.

We see a worse-for-wear Cap seemingly preparing for his last stand, Nebula roaring into battle, and Ant-Man... using a pencil as a springboard?

It's not completely clear what's going on there, but it does look like these guys are fighting in some kind of post-apocalyptic setting. Is there a chance they might even be back on Titan?

Gear Up

Zxlgckw1 o

The last couple of shots give us a great look at the team sporting those "Advanced Tech" suits we've seen so much of in the various promo material.

It seems clear that these outfits are designed (by Lang and Stark, most likely) to allow our heroes to travel either through time, or in The Quantum Realm, or both.

Although they don't share the screen here, this also marks the first time we've seen Iron Man and Captain America together in the same room since Civil War.

"I Like This One"

Xf8olfva o

You didn't think the trailer would end without giving us a glimpse of Captain Marvel, did ya?

After the logo - and we're loving the added drums on the theme, by the way - we see Thor approach Carol and guide Stormbreaker into his hand. Danvers doesn't look too impressed, and The God of Thunder likes that.

This is a nice moment of levity after a rather downbeat trailer.

We're In The Endgame Now...



We really are! Avengers: Endgame will be with us in a little over a month. Tell us, what did you think of this new trailer? Are you sufficiently hyped for the film, or would you like to see a little more before April 26?
