Avengers: Endgame: Everything We Know About Last Avengers Movie

Well, here we are. We have arrived at the end. Are we sad? A little. Are we excited? A LOT. In today's blog, we're going to cover everything we know about the final installment of the Avengers movies, including fun facts, character information, and more. Without further ado, let's get started.

Initial Reviews

If initial reactions can predict anything about the viability of a movie, then we're in for a real treat with Avengers: Endgame. According to critic reviews, and current audience scores, this will be the best Avengers movie of all time (or any superhero movie, for that matter). While famous critics had voiced their concerns prior to their opportunities to view the film before its release, the accounts seem to be the same across the board: This is going to be an incredible movie filled with emotional highs and lows, and an action-packed adventure like nothing we've seen before. Audience reviews reveal a similar narrative; this movie is really going to be amazing. With only a few hours left before we can begin finding our seats, this is excellent news and only makes us more excited.

Trailers and Clips We've Seen 

Often, trailers for movies can be very misleading, but for the limited amount of information and viable theories that have been released, what we've seen from the clips and trailers is really all we have to go on. The second teaser, released during the Super Bowl, certainly had Marvel fans excited, but also a little confused and even worried. It appeared that Tony Stark was going to be left behind, and he might not have had enough oxygen to get back to Earth, which, not going to lie, would be a huge bummer. But, as the first and second trailers were released, we're starting to see clips of Tony being back at Avengers headquarters, so we think that means he's going to make it back to safety?

The first full scene debut from the movie came at CinemaCon this month, and a substantial clip from that scene was aired during an episode of Good Morning America. Thanks to ComicBook.com, we've had the chance to see the entire clip, and boy does it look awesome. Check it out below:

While this clip reveals a lot about which characters will be showing their faces in Endgame, it does also reveal an interesting dynamic that we did not anticipate. Since Thor has pretty much found his way to disliking every Avenger he's come across in the original films (until, eventually, growing to like them), he seems to really like Carol Danvers right off the bat? Is there a love interest here?...or does he just appreciate Captain Marvel's obviously incredible power and strength? We will find out!

Ticket Presales

It's official - Endgame has sold more tickets ahead of time than any movie...ever. Yes, ever. It has officially combined for at least double the number of presales for Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Aquaman, and Captain Marvel combined... Oh! Did we mention that those four are the most pre-sold-movies ever? We didn't? Well, there you go.

The hype surrounding this movie is both understandable and was inevitable, but holy cow. We would not have expected it to have sold over $100 million in tickets before the movie even came out...

The Movie Posters

In what ended up being a brilliant marketing campaign (would you expect anything less than brilliant?) Marvel released a series of movie posters 1 month prior to the release date, and they were as revealing about the movie as they were amazing. Each poster featured characters from the MCU in either color or black-and-white depending on their status following "the snap". We get a great glimpse into who will be alive and well during Endgame, as well as characters that we can (hopefully!) expect to return if the snap is reversed.

Surprises were certainly in the mix for characters that made it through the snap, and MCU fans had no problems voicing their excitement for a select few, namely, Valkyrie, Wong, Happy, and Hawkeye! 

The Movie Itself

The expected runtime for Endgame promises to be the longest of any MCU movie to-date, at just over 3 hours. First of all, an epic of this proportion certainly warrants an extended runtime, so we're not worried about that, but there also seems to be some additional justification from the directors where they explained that in order to wrap this whole story up right, they'll need the full 3 hours. Hopefully, this means little downtime, otherwise, it could have the potential for some seriously slow moments.

As for the big screen, it was reported that the entire film was shot with IMAX cameras, just like part 1, and with the release of the "look" of the footage, you can see that approximately 26% more movie will appear on IMAX screens than on the traditional big screen. Here's an example of what we're talking about:

What About The Characters?

As for the characters, it's been rumored that there may be a few that don't make it through the story. As sad as that is, it actually is intriguing enough that we'll be waiting on the edge of our seats to see if anything of that nature actually comes to fruition.

According to the contracts of a few of the characters, Iron Man and Captain America, Endgame will be their last movie, too. They're only signed on for this last film, so unless there's some sort of contract extension or further negotiations that no one has heard about, we probably won't see another Tony Stark film. 

What's Going to Happen?

We hope you didn't get here and think we have any spoilers for you. We're just as in the dark as you are, but we can certainly speculate as to what might happen in the movie. First of all, based on Dr. Strange's famous, "There's only one" line, we can hopefully look forward to a victory for the good guys. However, with the way Infinity War ended, we can't really know that for certain.

We will, on the other hand, see another Tom Holland led Spider-Man movie at the end of the year, though, so we know that either 1. the snap gets reversed or 2. they find a way to bring at least a few of the characters back.

Outside of all of the hubbub and noise surrounding this movie, we're just genuinely so excited. It does mark the end of an era, but it's been quite the era and we're all lucky to have been along for the ride.

That wraps up today's blog! We hope you enjoy the movie, and we'll talk to you next week.
