The eagerly awaited “Avengers: End Game” has finally hit theaters, and although it delivers everything Marvel fans expect: epic battles, humor and great special effects, it didn’t live up to the hype Disney and Marvel Studios was bombarding audiences with for the past 12 months. No picture could.
That aside, “Endgame” is the last chapter of the Avenger’s saga, which started seven years ago with “The Avengers” (’12). The original Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk and Thor are just a shell of their former selves after super villain Thanos turned half of the universe to dust at the end of the previous Avenger’s movie.
Enter new heroine Captain Marvel (Brie Narson) who was off world defending other galaxies, and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) who was trapped in the quantum realm during the big dust off. Ant-Man comes up with a plan to use the quantum realm to utilize time and gather the Infinity Stones before Thanos can used them in the Big Snap.
Assembling the surviving Avengers takes a little doing as Iron Man (Tony Stark) and (Captain America) Steve Rogers have to resolve their past differences. And then there’s the Hulk, who poses for selfies with fans, and guilt-ridden Thor who is more interested in guzzling beer than reversing the damage Thanos caused.
The thing to admire about “Endgame,” and all Marvel movies for that matter, is their consistency in storytelling. “Endgame” answers all Easter Egg questions and as a bonus, all the Avengers finally assemble to fight Thanos and his army. “Endgame” is the end of the Avengers arc. In fact, there is such a finality that there’s no after credit scene. Clearly Marvel Studios is moving onto a new saga.
