What’s the story?
Avengers: Endgame is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the entire year. And that’s for a very good reason. This movie is a culmination of 22+ movies that came before it and it manages to clean up and just bring in a satisfying conclusion to this version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That being said, Avengers: Endgame is not the final Marvel movie, but this continuity ends with the movie and we will get to see new characters and new stories.
That being said, Avengers: Endgame on its own is continuing a while after Thanos has won. Now we are facing the problem of finding a way for people that were dusted to come back as quickly as possible. Doing that is most likely going to rely on time travel, and that is obviously going to be a huge issue unless there are some important ideas that we didn’t get to cover until this point.
The interesting thing about Avengers: Endgame is that everything is secret for a reason. This is a culmination of many movies and it really manages to bring in front some cool and really exciting ideas to the table. On top of that, the movie is designed to bring in more and more attention to problems in our society.
Is it any good?
Having the core team as well as some other people will help a lot here, since we get to see exactly how all can pay off without actually having too much support this time around. But that’s definitely exciting, because we get to go back to basics while also trying to figure out creative ways to push the story onward in the best possible manner.
There are numerous rumors that some Avengers will die. Considering that this is seen as a culmination movie, we can expect casualties and that will be really hard to determine who will die until we actually see the movie. But what we do know is that no one is really safe, especially in a movie like this. There are always going to be people that sacrifice themselves for the better good, and we can expect that here.
Of course, there are major challenges coming to the table, but the most important thing is how everything will tie up. And as we know, Thanos is already a very powerful enemy, so we will need some very good strategies and attacks to finally put this enemy to the ground. That being said, with the comeback of Ant-Man and Hawkeye, we will have the unique opportunity to see a great team of Avengers in action, and that really says something. But it will be exciting as it is fun to see how the story unfolds.
Avengers: Endgame is set to break the $1 billion barrier quickly and some say it will even go past 2 billion. That’s hard to know, but one thing is certain, people have been waiting for this for a very long time, more than a decade, and to have this unfold this way is downright spectacular.
