After 22 marvelous movies about an amazing universe that was brought to life on the big screen, the day has come. Today, on the 24th of April 2019, Marvel Studios released the supposed “end” to all of our superheroes’ journeys.
Ever since their very first film, Iron Man in 2008, Marvel has built up the hype to each and every viewer that this year, the Avengers: Endgame could just be the most awaited movie of all time. Well, the wait is over, but the big question is: is the final product of an over-a-decade’s production worth the wait?
As mentioned, this is a spoiler-free review of Avengers: Endgame. Just let me tell you this – it will leave you satisfied.
Each and every cliffhanger from its prequel, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) will be made clear. It’s so satisfying that most of the questions that didn’t let you sleep at night after watching Infinity War last year will be answered in just a snap (no pun intended). The first thirty minutes of the movie will be so packed that you’ll be left to think: “Okay, so what now?” I was honestly left clueless, but I kept my mind open and got rid of all my assumptions and expectations because, at that point, really anything can happen. It felt like nothing was impossible. I didn’t want to get excited or disappointed. I just let them tell their story and lead me towards the “ending.”
There are so many things I love about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the one that stands out for me the most in Avengers: Endgame is the characterization. If you have been following the stories of these superheroes that the world has learned to love for the past decade, I know you’d understand. You might cry when they’re down, you’ll smile when they’re having fun and throwing their usual witty banter.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t simply churn out a series of superhero movies, they went above and beyond and made these movies a part of people’s lives whereas only comic-book enthusiasts knew about these stories before. But with a special magic formula, MCU was able to relate the superheroes to more people, regardless of age, genre preference, and more.
The film series finale definitely did NOT disappoint. They were keen with details, making sure that all those little quirks that people love about their characters were there; those qualities that make them so alive and human.
Before you watch, I guess you should know that even though I said that most of the questions from the prequel will be answered in pretty early in Avengers: Endgame, there is an even more important question—the most important one— that will be plotted. I wish I could express more of how I feel about it! But, as promised, no spoilers here.
Although if you want to know if the wrath of Thanos is inevitable, you just have to remember the truth in how it all started.
