Ten years have come and gone in the blink of an eye. I can still remember the events surrounding that original Iron Man film in 2008, and my going to see it at the midnight release. I can still remember the popularity of that first trailer, and the Onion article mocking that popularity. Oh how far we’ve come, and how how great the journey has been!
I loved Avengers: Endgame 3000.
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
I have a feeling my thoughts on this film might change as time goes on. I viewed Infinity War a bit more harshly last year than I eventually settled on, and I mellowed out more on Black Panther. The same could happen here. But having seen Avengers: Endgame twice in the opening weekend, I’m very pleased with the film and everything it had to offer. It’s not perfect, and I’ve got some nitpicks, but overall it was everything we could have wanted from the Infinity Saga finale.
Join me after the jump for my full review and thoughts on Avengers: Endgame. Be warned that this article contains FULL SPOILERS and assumes you’ve seen the movie.
There are MAJOR SPOILERS for Avengers: Endgame in the latest Tell It Animated video. Why the dude behind these videos thought spoiling the movie would be a good idea is beyond me. He definitely didn’t need to spoil anything to go over the history of Captain America costumes in cinema.
But since most of my readers have probably (hopefully) seen Avengers: Endgame, they can get away with watching this vid!
But seriously, if you haven’t seen the movie, don’t watch this delightfully animated video. He gives the whole game away. It’s ridiculous.
Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters today and I’ve got my ticket! I’ll be showing up at least an hour in advance at my local theater to ensure I get one of the good, comfy, reclining seats. So it’s gonna be a long day, with a really rewarding end!
To get us all in the Avengers spirit, here’s a bunch of Avengers videos I’ve been holding onto for a couple weeks! Like this sweet retrospective.
Or How Captain Marvel Should Have Ended by the HISHE people!
Avengers: Endgame is going to rock my socks off, hopefully! Reviews have been stellar, all past movies have been perfect. I feel like I’m in a good place here, people.
I hope you enjoy it too!
Avengers: Endgame will be here in only a few days and then a decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will reach its conclusion — but that won’t be the end of Marvel movies. Disney and Marvel would be fools to bring this gravy train to a halt. They’ve already got a lot of plans for further Black Panther and Doctor Strange movies, along with finally giving us a Black Widow film, and whatever nonsense they’re planning with the Eternals.
But where does the Avengers name brand franchise go from here? How about a spin-off!
I have not yet seen Avengers: Endgame so I do not yet know the state of the team at the end of the film. Who’s dead? Who’s retired? Are the Avengers even still around? Do they still have that sweet compound in Upstate New York? I’ll find out in a few days! But until then, how about we wildly speculate about where the Avengers franchise could go next! Surely the brand name is too famous and popular to let lie. So how about we look back at some classic comic book spin-off Avengers teams and figure out how they could host the next billion dollar franchise!
Join me after the jump for all the possibilities!
By this time next week, I will have seen Avengers: Endgame and all will be right in the world. I can’t wait. I’m very excited. Let’s hope I’m not too excited!
Until then, we’ve got to read some fun comics, like Guardians of the Galaxy and the final issue of West Coast Avengers! The War of the Realms also continued this week! But Comic Book of the Week goes to the big, climactic issue of Tony Stark – Iron Man for a solid, enjoyable story.
Meanwhile, my skimming of new Uncanny X-Men issues reaffirms my correct decision to drop them. More characters I like are dead. Though if my brother is reading this, he might be slightly pleased to know that the original Pyro has been stealth returned to the living…though apparently as a one-note bad guy. I’m working on a larger Pyro article, I promise.
Comic Reviews: Guardians of the Galaxy #4, Magnificent Ms. Marvel #2, Tony Stark – Iron Man #10, War of the Realms #2 and West Coast Avengers #10.
