Avengers Endgame is the perfect conclusion to not just Infinity War, but the last 10 or so years of Marvel movies. Of course the Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue after this (we’re only a few weeks away from Spider-man: Far From Home after all. Not to mention the countless other sequels we know are in the works) but the way Marvel have managed to wrap up 20+ films worth of interconnected storytelling to produce not just a satisfying conclusion but a brilliant and convincing epic at that; is nothing short of amazing.
Am I going too far? I don’t think so. Marvel absolutely smashed it out of the park with Infinity War and they’ve done it again here with another massive ensemble movie with this superhero epic. I might have been critical about Black Panther and Captain Marvel for being somewhat underwhelming but when they get the whole gang together, they manage to get fantastic chemistry, great action and so, so much emotion!
This movie is Robert Downey Jr’s movie. He is sensational in the role of Tony Stark; you couldn’t imagine one without the other now. While the entire cast are excellent, the character journey that he has been on since Iron Man 1 to get to the start of End Game has been so fun to watch.
Okay yes, there might be a few questions that you’ll have by the end of the movie but A) it’s a superhero franchise with aliens, gods and countless other powers. I will allow their universes science mumbo jumbo to not match ours perfectly B) I’m pretty sure any questions asked could be answered in future films, spin offs and comics.
Avengers: Endgame not only lived up to the hype but surpassed it in my opinion. To be honest, I didn’t think they’d be able to pull off something on such a large scale twice in a row. While I think I enjoyed Infinity War more, mostly because my favourite characters are featured far more heavily, the story they tell in a ‘post snap’ world is great.
This will be my favourite movie of 2019, without question.
