The movie also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and Brian Tyree Henry. The story features a battle against The Deviants, amid bleak landscapes, filled with storms and explosions.
The trailer ends with the group discussing who would lead The Avengers in the absence of Iron Man.
