New MCU Trailer Teases Potential Death of Cinema

LOS ANGELES — Marvel Studios released the final trailer for the upcoming film Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, in which eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the trailer clearly hints at the potential death of cinema

“If you really analyze the trailer, with the longing looks from characters and what we know about the MCU so far, this one is finally going to kill off cinema once and for all,” said YouTube commenter Andy Freely. “Frankly, I’m surprised cinema has held on this long, but from what we know about the script there’s not way it survives this one. It’s not unearned, though, I feel like they’ve been building to the death of cinema for the last ten movies.”

While he wouldn’t reveal specifics, Paul Rudd’s press tour for the film seemed to confirm the fan theory.

“I don’t want to give anything away, but when I read the script, I cried after seeing what happened to the movie industry as a whole,” Rudd told reporters Sunday. “It’s tough to see something you love so much come to an end, but cinema has run its course, and the Marvel universe has to continue on without it. I love cinema as much as the next person, but don’t go into Ant-Man 3 expecting movies as an artform to make it out unscathed. Sorry Marty!”

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said the death has been a long time in the making.

“I’m glad we can finally pay off something we’ve been teasing since the first slate of Marvel movies,” Feige said. “It’s been so hard to keep it a secret for this amount of time, but every fan who predicted that the artform cinema would die sooner or later in the Marvel films was absolutely correct. We hid it as long as we could, but we’ve been trying to kill off cinema since 2008.”

At press time, sources reported that the trailer also contained hidden Easter Eggs hinting that the movie would not be very good.
