The world has been waiting a year for this Avengers instalment, the movie that ties together 10 years of Marvel movies:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
We previewed the movie and were blown away. Be warned, it is a three hour movie and you do not want to miss one second of it! And for the record, the three hours felt like an hour and a half, time flew, the movie was that amazing!
My son and I saw the movie Tuesday morning. He rarely goes to movies with us anymore, but he begged for me to get him an invite to this one, and he was not disappointed!
We know how the movie is going to progress because Dr. Strange made it clear in Infinity Wars that there was one path in 14 million that would provide the universe with the best outcome, as he handed Thanos the time stone. He was clearly setting in motion the steps that needed to occur for this one scenario to happen. This is not a spoiler, it is information that you can piece together from the last movie.
Does everyone live? No. Does everyone die? No. Does Captain Marvel save the day? maybe, but remember, this is an Avengers movie, and they are all about the team effort!
And the movie was funny, there were comedic bits and jokes throughout, all tastefully done so as to not detract from the morbidity of the fact that half of the universe was erased.
-This was Stan Lee’s last cameo, and it was as wonderful as ever.
-Wakanda is represented, and in doing so, Marvel reminded me that we do not see enough of the folks from this land. I need a full Wakandan movie every six months to feel satisfied at this point.
-Tom Holland is my favorite Spider-Man of all time. He is perfect every time he is on screen, no matter the movie.
-Thor is not quite the same, and neither are his hammers.
-Cameos galore: from Tilda Swinton, to Taika David Waititi. I was overwhelmed, thrilled, and entranced at the enormity of the cast involved in this movie!
I hope you can get tickets before the end of the year, check out Fandango.com right now!
Kevin Feige produces “Avengers: Endgame,” and Anthony and Joe Russo are the directors. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers, and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
This guys sense of humor is fantastic. I am still reeling from the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” is in U.S. theaters on April 26, 2019.
I did get to chat with Chris Evans about the movie, he said it was exhilarating and exhausting at the same time!
Nebula (Karen Gillan) also stopped by to say hello:
