    I mean, Ant-Man's place in the MCU at least has some relevance with the quantum realm / soul stone. I doubt T'Challa knows everything about vibranium to try and use it to save people...

    ...that said, though, we never saw Shuri getting snapped away; maybe she's alive and might actually have a part in trying to rescue people. And of all the Black Panther cast, she'd have the most knowledge on tweaking vibranium to assist the Avengers.

    Why would they carve out something major for T'Challa? Shuri is going to be a major focus going forward and I'm betting she will be important in Endgame. They've already said she is the smartest human in the MCU. Also, I like her character better. The quantum realm is the part that likely has a huge role not Ant Man even though he is going to be coming from the quantum realm.

    FWIW I hope any other trailers coming up for Endgame are in this style where they set the tone and don't reveal anything significant.

    I know Nebula has had a pivotal role in the comics, but so far Nebula has had little relevance besides being Gamora's Sister and Thanos' Kid and she is in the trailer.

    T'challa is one of the four smartest people in the comics. Shuri is the smartest person in the MCU, but that doesn't mean her bother is a dummy. It was Black Panther that led the army against Thanos in Wakanda, not Cap. He doesn't have to assist with Vabranium. He can use his knowledge, leadership, skill and strategy to help in the fight. Also, Wakanda just revealed itself to the world. The Snap could have been a way to introduce Wakanda as a country delivering humanitarian aid with it's advanced tech. I'm just saying there is a bunch of ways to do it. If Black Panther was in the plan like Ant Man was, Disney could have made a way.

    I mean, Black Panther is a billion dollar movie, why wouldn't they carve out something for that cash cow? I agree, T'Challa was the least interesting person in his own movie. If they leave him dead and let Shuri take the mantle of Black Panther, That would be pretty crazy and a bold move.You wouldn't get the Storm/Black Panther marriage though...

    The original Ronin was a deaf hispanic woman, Hawkeye was the 2nd Ronin.

    I think you're taking the first teaser a bit too seriously. None of the people who got disintegrated by Thanos appeared in the trailer. Pretty sure everyone knows some or all of them are coming back one way or another, but I'd think you could understand why they wouldn't show that.

    What Buck said.

    I also think you're getting irrationally mad at BP not being included in the trailer. It only showed characters that weren't snapped away - Nebula included. Just because Black Panther wasn't included in the trailer doesn't mean Disney / Marvel forgot about it or its success. The trailer probably only featured Ant-Man because the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp directly ties into Infinity War.

    But, again, the movie is about the Avengers - not Black Panther. That's why Hawkeye was shown. You're asking for a really minor detail about a different property to be included in a movie that's about every single hero introduced in the 10 year universe. It'd be like complaining that Wong from Dr. Strange wasn't in the trailer. Not everyone can get screentime, especially in a trailer, and especially not snapped characters.

    To your point, though, they could still have Wakanda giving aid in the movie. It would just be a very minor thing to highlight in a trailer.

    Naw. We are just discussing the trailer. If you go back and read my post, I just made an observation. I wish there were more black people in the trailer. That's it. M'baku, Okoye, and War Machine are still alive post snap. Then you guys pounced.


    I'm not mad, guys. @Ottomaton has already established why BP is not a featured player in Infinity War 1 and 2: IW was being made the same time as BP and was already written. If Disney knew how popular BP was going to be their plans (might)would have changed. I have no doubt. Marvel is on a schedule.

    All other discussions were just theory crafting how they could have included BP as someone who survived the snap.

    I like how Lang points at a padlocked gate and asks them to buzz him in.

    Infinity War had too much black representation. Thanos balanced it in Endgame.

    I read on Wikipedia that it was supposed to be Daredevil but he was occupied in other storylines so they had to invent a new character.

    I think if Disney knew BP would be so popular then they would definitely have him disappear in IW. Him being beloved is what makes it impactful. I thought him and Spidey going was great because it was totally unexpected: they were thought to be 2 pillars of the next several years.

    Give the old guard a send off in IW with the new guard returning to help save the day and take over.

    The new guys will come back. Every one knows that. As such I don't see people sitting out Endgame because they think BP won't be in it. Everyone knows he will be.

    I imagine a trailer might even tease the possibility of bringing people back, which would be a good way to get those bizarrely sitting out to come watch.

    Nah, they've learned the lesson of Black Panther, if they want a best picture nomination, they have to make nearly the entire cast black. I expect a second snap that sets that up and puts Endgame in contention for essentially every Oscar.

    When did Shuri become smarter than Reed Richards or Tony Stark? Is this in the actual comics too?
