Thor and Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame trailer

Hands down the best part of the new Avengers: Endgame trailer was Thor trying to take Captain Marvel’s measure. The few seconds of footage tagged at trailer’s end was the only moment of levity, and as these things are wont to do, it launched frenzied social media reactions, memes, fanart, and even a (misguided) ship.
