|Avengers Endgame Poster|
As soon as Avengers: Endgame was released in the theater, we were there! After waiting a year to see the final showdown between Thanos and the Avengers, an extra week or month would be asking too much.
This is probably the most anticipated movie ever and fans were not disappointed.
There were several opportunities in the movie for Avenger fans to laugh, cheer out loud and a few very unexpected moments that reduced us to tears. If you haven't seen it yet, I advise you to take Kleenex and prepare for the roller-coaster of emotions. Avengers: Infinity War was only the beginning of gut-wrenching events and new realities for the Avengers.
As I left the theater, I had conflicting thoughts. I was ecstatic and felt a sense of gratification, but that was tempered by recognition of loss. Any war exacts a high price, and this Endgame was no exception.
Avengers: Endgame Movie Synopsis
Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame (With Bonus)I want to start by saying, don't watch trailers and don't read any spoilers. This movie deserves to be seen from beginning to end and not chopped up into scenes or reduced to opinions. I am happy to give some background, but I will not spoil the movie for you.
The Avengers: Endgame movie starts with a lot of help from Captain Marvel as they try to locate, rescue, and reorganize the remaining Avengers. Each one is dealing with their devastating personal losses from the Infinity War that seems to have ended with Thanos reducing the world's population by half. Not only are they grieving the deaths of several beloved Avengers, friends and family, but the world is simply not operating the same way without everyone in place, working their jobs, and doing the daily tasks that make everything work together.
Tony Stark (Iron Man) is the only exception. Since neither he nor Pepper Potts were "turned to ash", they have started a new life and home together. They even have a child. Truly a bright spot in an otherwise dismal few years following Infinity War.
With Black Widow at the helm, the remaining Avengers (War Machine, Rocket, Nebula, & Okoye) report in to the Avenger's compound, giving updates on their current activity. They are no longer able to work together as one team on one mission due to the large number of demands across the universe.
Captain America is leading a support group, helping individuals find a new direction and learn to move on after the loss of their loved ones. Thor has hit an all time low and is basically hiding out in the new Asgard. No doubt, his current life choices will surprise you. I know they shocked me.
But, remember Ant-Man? He was lost in a spacetime vortex when Dr. Pym and Hope (The Wasp) were turned to ash. 5 years later, when he finds his way back out, he has no knowledge of what has happened. Therefore, his outlook is totally different from the other remaining Avengers. After all, he hasn't spent the last 5 years grieving and trying to give new direction to the entire world. His perspective is fresh and completely different. Scott (Ant-Man) shows up at the Avenger's compound and presents his idea. After consulting Bruce Banner (The Hulk) to discuss the scientific validity of Scott's suggestion, they set out to reassemble the team to once again fight together as one.
Thus, the Endgame!
