Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) seemed very distraught in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one Marvel fan seems to have a compelling theory why.
The trailer for Avengers: Endgame featured some heartbreaking moments. One of these moments was Bruce Banner looking very, very emotional while looking at an image suggesting that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and Shuri (Leticia Wright) are all missing after the events of Avengers: Infinity War. It seems like he’s focused on Ant-Man before he looks away, seemingly overwhelmed.
The strange thing is, the only one of those characters that Banner even briefly encountered was Shuri. So, why does he seem so upset? It’s a pretty overwhelming situation in general, but a Reddit post from user hulkreborn seems to have a pretty convincing theory. The fan theory suggests that Marvel is pulling a fast one on fans by swapping out the faces in the trailer because Banner is actually looking at a picture of Betty Ross. Check out the full theory in the post below.
Betty Ross is Bruce Banner’s iconic love interest that was last played by Liv Tyler in The Incredible Hulk. Despite the titular role being recast and many of the plot-threads being left open, the film is still a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, Betty’s father General Ross (William Hurt) played an integral role in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. While speaking with the Huffington Post, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo did confirm that Betty Ross was a victim of Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) snap, so the theory isn’t exactly a long shot.

Here’s Every Hero Who Appears In The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.
The First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she's been assessing the consequences of Thanos' actions. Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.
Although Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.
Nebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.
The new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.
After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.
While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
