Avengers: Endgame

People are LOVING ‘Avengers: Endgame’

This weekend, Avengers: Endgame finally hits theaters. After ten years and twenty-one films, the most epic chapter in the MCU’s history will finally be released. If there was any worry about whether or not the film is any good, these early Twitter reactions should be a clear indication.

On Monday night, Endgame had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A handful of journalists and reviewers were able to see it. Though a review embargo is still in place, many of them posted their reactions online:

 


The general consensus seems to be that Avengers: Endgame is an epic film that balances humor and sadness well and not only serves as a proper sequel to Infinity War but also a tribute to the last eleven years of MCU history.

How excited are you for Endgame?

Russo Brothers Write Open Letter to Fans Regarding ‘Endgame’ Leak

As Game of Thrones nears its end and the Avengers prepare to assemble one last time: how can we avoid spoilers? Not look? Families don’t go to the zoo and not expect to see a lion or two; because let’s be honest, a zoo without lions would be exceptionally lame (I’m not condoning the incarceration of animals by the way—set them free). Spoilers are like lions and we are their prey. Even now, millions of unsuspecting people are scrolling their news feeds and aimlessly goggling while you read this article. You don’t know me; maybe I’m some sick spoiler obsessed freak who’s about to drop the incendiary piece of information that ruins your day, week, month or year. Lucky enough for you, I’m reformed. I used to love spoilers; however, the months leading up to the final season of Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame have changed me.

Once upon a time, impatience was my mistress. I would read and watch stories up until the moment a cliffhanger or some oblique bit of ominous information presented itself. Masterclass storytellers would wind me up like a jack in the box until I exploded and craved an answer or an ending. I couldn’t stand not knowing. How could I possibly be a productive member of society with thousands of possible story threads/outcomes tangling up my brain? It only made sense to flip further a few pages or do one innocent online search—simply to put my mind at ease and move on with my life. And shouldn’t I grant others the same relief?

No.

People don’t like that.

Directors like the Anthony and Joseph Russo don’t like that. After the ending of Avengers Endgame was recently leaked online the duo took to their shared (exercise some individuality guys) Twitter:

I’m with them on this one. But I won’t lie to you: I can’t say my past as a member of the sinful spoiler syndicate was not dark and disturbed. When I experienced stories in the traditional way I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about them or to see their reaction.

I’m sorry Tucker for pretending Battle of the Bastards just popped up on my T.V. by accident when you were committed to reading The Winds of Winter first. I was sick. Impatience is like irreverently racing towards the finish line, throwing earned catharsis, character development and revelations to the wind. The internet reinforces this with an endless rabbit hole of theorizing in the form of videos, Reddit threads and wasted hours.

That’s all very unfulfilling…and there’s probably a very bad place reserved for those who spoil Harry Potter’s semi-death, Robert Neville’s monstrosities, Tyler Durden’s existence or how gone a girl Amy Dunne really is. Fortunately, my taste for spoilers seems to be diminishing with age so I have the rest of my life to repent.

At this point in my life, I don’t want the end of Game of Thrones or Avengers: Endgame spoiled for me. I’ve spent too much time with these characters. I want to experience it. The only problem is: spoilers are out there and threatening the immersive storytelling experience craftsmen like the Russo brothers set out to provide. In their case, a twenty-two film arc finale.

Minutes before I sat down to watch the premiere episode of GoT on Sunday, I received more than a few text messages from people who were not going to be able to see it right away. Some of them said things like “Don’t say anything,” “I’m blocking you until tomorrow,” “I’m going to be an hour behind. If you ruin anything consider our friendship terminated.” I’m still regaining people’s trust…

And to those who still find a way to spoil things for people: I will beat you.

We Wish This ‘Avengers’ Spoiler Was An April Fools’ Joke

Avengers: Endgame is just around the corner. There will be tears. There will be spring-cleaning of all the dust from the ‘Snap.’ A number of our beloved original Avengers will likely bite the dust as well…

Many leaks have made their way to the internet. The latest ones will have you grinding your teeth and losing your mind as you wait to find out if they’re true. Here is the most plausible one.


SPOILER WARNING


 

Doctor Strange uses the Time Stone to trap Thanos in the Quantum Realm (The place where Ant-Man gets stuck at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp). Thanos tries to escape via the “Time Vortex,” which Ant-Man will use to exit the pocket dimension at the beginning of Endgame. The Time Stone creates a loop that continuously keeps Thanos from reaching this exit. Meanwhile, a revived Hank Pym quickly builds a machine that lets the Avengers see how small and microscopic Thanos has become in the real/physical world.

Then, the Hulk steps on Thanos and kills him.

It goes without saying that this was an April Fools’ joke. As a reward for being a good sport, if you did not already know, TICKETS FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME GO ON SALE TOMORROW. I SWEAR ON MY COMICS THIS ONE IS NOT A JOKE. CHECK HERE FOR SHOWTIMES.

32 Stunning ‘Avengers Endgame’ Posters Feature Every Hero

One month from today, Avengers: Endgame will be upon us. The culmination of ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will reach its dramatic conclusion. Two weeks ago, Marvel released the first trailer for the highly anticipated film. The trailer put an emphasis on older Marvel films while offering only glimpses of what to expect.

With the marketing of the film ramping up, Marvel just released thirty-two character posters for the new film featuring all the heroes from Infinity War. Each poster is color coded: sixteen of the posters feature the surviving Avengers in color, while the other sixteen feature the fallen heroes in black-and-white. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

All the characters featured in the trailer are here, along with some surprising additions like Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan. Sadly, the posters also confirm that fan-favorite Shuri did not survive the snap. There are still other characters, like M’Baku and Maria Hill, that have not been shown at all in any previews.

 

Look at the posters here.

 


Avengers: Endgame comes out April 26th.

New ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Has Just Dropped

Hot off the heels of Captain Marvel‘s massive opening weekend, Marvel Studios has released another trailer for Avengers: Endgame.

 

 

 

Warning: Do not continue reading if you haven’t watched the trailer!

 

The trailer cuts together footage of the previous Avengers film, Infinity War, along with new footage from the sequel. There are also some callbacks to the original Iron Man and Captain America films.

The most notable aspects of the trailer are the introduction of Avengers previously unseen in Infinity War. Hawkeye returns to the team after being absent from Infinity War. Ant-Man joins the team, though it’s not explained how he escaped the quantum realm after the events of Ant-Man and The Wasp. And as to be expected, Captain Marvel makes an appearance. Surprisingly, Thanos is nowhere to be found.

Marvel Studios also released a new poster. Only those who survived the snap are shown.
