When Joe and Anthony Russo appeared on stage, people got excited. People thought it meant an Avengers 4 trailer or at least Avengers game footage would be shown.
So how many of you are watching The Game Awards just to see if the Russo Brothers are showing any Avengers 4 stuff? (Yeah I am).

However, after that, the lights went down suddenly.
People expecting Avengers were disappointed.
Russo Brothers Enter Stage
“Oooohhhh Avengers 4? Avengers Project?!”
*Stage goes dark*
Joker is Smash announcement

Don’t get me wrong Super Smash Bros. Is cool But the #GameAwards2018 just really made me think they were gonna show the Avengers 4 trailer. How are you gonna have the Russo Brothers present then walk off stage and have the power “shut off” just to show a DLC.

Are you really gonna dramatically kill the lights for a trailer while the Russo Brothers are leaving the stage and not give us Avengers??? Not cool #TheGamesAwards

when the Russo Brothers walked off stage and everything went dark and it WASN’T the Avengers 4 trailer, I died a little inside#TheGameAwards

For real though! A total let down for me imo. They just invited the Russos for nothing, then??
