The premiere to Avengers: Endgame is steadily approaching and fans are counting down with enough excitement to make a grown man wet the bed. One fan channeled that anticipation into a video titled “Fortnite Endgame Trailer” – which was posted to YouTube by user Flawex. Each Marvel character being replaced using only props and characters from the battle royale game.
The trailer is nearly shot-for-shot and uses the audio from the original trailer. Making it even more impressive is the fact that it was all edited together on an iPhone with the iMovie application. This is definitely one of the more impressive trailer recreations to hit the internet in recent years, fueled by the current Fortnite craze that has taken over the gaming world.
Created by a player who goes by TheRedTomatoHead on Reddit, the cinematic was created entirely with in-game clips (and iphone). The creator said that’s how they do most of their fan edits. The same creator shared a trailer for Avengers: Infinity War several months ago and did their best to reuse the same characters.
For those who may or may not be familiar with Avengers: Endgame and Fortnite… the cast is: The Visitor as Thanos, The Reaper as Iron Man, Rose Team Leader as Black Widow, Havoc as Captain America, Tomatohead for Hulk, Battlehawk as Thor, Lynx as Nebula, Enforcer as Ronin/ Hawkeye, and Wingman as Antman.
The actual trailer for Avengers: Endgame can be seen below on our Official YouTube channel to make comparisons with the Fortnite Version.
The popularity of the video is reflective of the seemingly ever-growing enthusiasm Marvel fans have for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
