“Avengers: Endgame” is a magnificent end to an amazing series

Marvel’s newest movie “Avengers: Endgame” has been building since the release of “Iron Man” in 2008. And ever since half of the universe was wiped out by Thanos (Josh Brolin) last year in “Infinity War,” fans have been on the edge of their seats, waiting to find out their favorite characters’ fates.

“Avengers: Endgame” is over three hours long, and Marvel made every moment count. Each character has changed significantly since half of the universe was wiped out.

All six original Avengers survived Thanos, as well as Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Okoye (Danai Gurira), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). They have all gone their separate ways after the events that took place in “Infinity War.” Eventually, they are reunited by Scott, and seek to reverse “The Snap” by finding the infinity stones.

There is only one critique I have: do not have so many different things happening at the same time. There are some points in the movie that have a lot of different things happening at the same time, which gets hard to understand. Other than that, it was a magnificent movie to watch.

“Avengers: Endgame” will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. It will have you laughing one minute and sobbing the next.

This is the first Marvel movie that does not have a post-credit scene, which is understandable, since every post-credit scene has been building to this movie. However, there is a character “showcase” at the end that has a picture of every character and the actor’s name with it. The original six Avengers have a different showcase than the others.

“Avengers: Endgame” premiered on April 26. It has already broken the global box office record, set by “Avengers: Infinity War,” and Thursday preview day, set by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

It is not clear what movies Marvel is going to make next, except for the new Spider-Man movie, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which is set to come out July 5.
