Unless Thanos snapped you out of existence, it’s likely that you’ve heard about Avengers: End- game. Featuring a star-studded cast, this is, without a doubt, the movie event of the decade.

Endgame is the highly-anticipated conclusion to Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) first three phases, comprised of 22 films. It picks up right where the events of Avengers: In nity War left off, with our heroes reeling from their defeat against Thanos and plotting a way to bring their loved ones back and finally defeat Thanos once and for all.

Not only has Endgame been a success with critics and fans alike, but it has dominated the box of office, leaving any competition in the dust (pun intended). In its opening weekend, the lm garnered over $1.2 billion worldwide in the box of office, going on to be- come the highest grossing lm of 2019.

Additionally, it wraps up the stories of some of the heroes that fans have grown to love. It’s evident that for the majority of fans, this lm brought the ultimate ending to this epic saga.

“It went above and beyond,” said WHS senior Ryan Murphy, who has been a Marvel fan for over a decade. “It was such an incredible experience, and was truly a fantastic way to end such a massive se- ries of lms.”

EIS eighth grader Joe Gamba shared Murphy’s sentiments. “It really exceeded my expectations,” he said. “I didn’t think they could ll up all three hours with entertaining moments, but they did.”

While this movie has answered all of the burning questions fans have had since Infinity War, one question remains: What will happen next?

This movie focuses mainly on the journeys of the original six Avengers, but it also provides viewers an idea of what MCU will look like in the coming years. Many new faces have emerged in recent lms, such as Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, and there are still new heroes that the MCU is planning on introducing such as The Eternals, which is scheduled to be released in the next few years.

There is certainly a lot up in the air as to where the MCU will go next, but the fans have faith in its future. “I feel like with the way the movie went, there are many paths [Marvel can take],” said Gamba.

While there is certainly a lot to look forward to, for now, Marvel fans can enjoy Endgame and see the culmination of the past 22 films. “Thank you [Marvel] for creating such an impactful series over these last 11 years,” Murphy said, when asked what he would say to the cast and crew of the lm. “I hope that your work stands the test of time and is enjoyed for generations to come.”
