It’s probably one of the biggest releases of the year, and the spoilers are about to fly (not here of course, you will have to find those elsewhere). But what we can tell you about Avengers: Endgame is the movie not only wraps up so many story lines but creates so many other questions that we’re not sure if some will change the story lines as we know it or if they will lead the sequels that are currently in production.
Picking up a few weeks after Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame brings back to Avengers coming to terms with their loss from Thanos. The team is trying to find sense in the losses, they are working to find a way to undo what has been done by the snap felt through the universe.
The movie is long and the first two hours is primarily building up to the epic battle scene that is in the last hour or third act of the film. But to get there, the movie takes you through space and time to get there. Timelines are crossed, which may create more questions than answers. And yes, there are deaths in this movie as well.
Endgame rounds out the end of the stories for the Avengers as a team very well, and is something that the beloved characters deserve for the years we’ve watched them grow and fallen in love with their story lines. But because there are so many pieces, the movie did feel a bit like a blending of the different styles and even musical choices. Instead of sticking to just the core team we know as the Avengers, there is a slight nod to all of the other characters we have come to love over the years as well.
While everyone has their favorite Marvel character by this point, they all play their roles well and to what we have come to expect. However, in Endgame Thor seems to steal the show in a most… unusual fashion.
Shockingly, there is no end credit scene! After 22 movies and ten years we have been trained to sit through to the end of the credits and Endgame doesn’t have a reason to stay and wait. There are artistic character credits before the main credits roll that are interesting to watch but if you’re looking to find a teaser for one of the upcoming sequels, you’re going to be disappointed.
Avengers: Endgame is three hours long.. THREE. HOURS. LONG. If you’re like me, you may be worried about making it through the whole movie and not missing important information if you have to run for the bathroom. With this in mind, I took some notes with some spots through the movie that you will lose minimal information if you have to make a run for the bathroom. With that being said, you should make sure you there for the last hour of the film, you won’t want to miss that part and that’s where the majority of the action of the film goes.
While we don’t suggest leaving at any point of the movie, if you absolutely have to, here are the best times for a quick bathroom run:
- 26 minutes in
- 40 minutes in
- 52 minutes in
- 1 hour 3 minutes in
- 1 hour 38 minutes in
- 1 hour 42 minutes in
- 1 hour 46 minutes in
- 1 hour 58 minutes in
- 2 hours 8 minutes in
Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: ENDGAME is in U.S. theaters on April 26, 2019.
