The epic end to the Avengers franchise, as we currently know it, has finally come and what an end it is!
Part of the journey is the end, and while Avengers: Endgame is not a definitive end to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as fans have come to know and love, it is the ultimate climax of an experience that has been teased over 11 years and 21 movies.
Starting from when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) first approaches Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey) for the assemblage of an Avengers team, MCU fans have been treated to a plethora of movies that created an expansive world and have always edged towards a big picture with a purple Titan always hovering.
From ridiculously lighthearted to edgy and emotional roller coasters, this franchise has done it all over and over again all so we could end up here at the Endgame where every thread meets and tangles.
The last time we saw the Avengers, only half of the team was left standing after Thanos, voiced by Josh Brolin, delivered that finger-snap that decimated half of the universe, an ending that flipped the script and left jaws on the floor.
Endgame picks up weeks after the chaos of Infinity War as characters left behind deal with the emotional fallout of losing their friends and failing to protect Earth, and the universe, from the Mad Titan.
The movie races through what is a shocking, exciting first few minutes that’s best left to the imagination of people that are yet to watch, before it settles into a lull that magnifies the impact of Thanos’ action on the characters.
While some of our heroes continue to search for a workaround on Thanos’ genocidal snap despite a significant time jump, others move forward with their lives in sullen resignation.
