‘Avengers: Endgame’ Review: The McU’s Long Goodbye Is an Emotional Wipeout

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Review: The McU’s Long Goodbye Is an Emotional Wipeout
Thanos demands my silence. So if you expect a lot of specific “who lives, who dies” spoilers in this review, snap out of it. However, it is fair to say that Avengers: Endgame, directed by the Russo brothers — Anthony and Joseph — with a fan’s reverence for all that came before, is truly epic and thunderously exciting. You probably won’t care that at three hours, it’s bloated, uneven and all over the place, flitting from character to character like a bird that doesn’t know where to land.

Kevin Feige on when he realised The Avengers assembling shot would be iconic

Kevin Feige has revealed when he became aware that the Avengers assembling moment could become an iconic one.

There have been many standout moments across the Avengers films and indeed, the McU, but the most iconic is certainly the shot of all the heroes assembling in Marvel’s The Avengers. Was the shot obviously iconic from the start though?

Apparently not to Kevin Feige who has revealed what the shot originally looked like and when he realised how special the moment was. Speaking as part of Rotten Tomatoes’ 21 Most Memorable Moments video, Feige said:

“That shot, the shot of all the Avengers assembling for the first time, was so much spectacle, so many visual effects. It was filmed in an open air warehouse in New Mexico, not in New York. There was nothing but green screen behind them. Hulk wasn’t in the shot. Iron Man wasn’t in the

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Review: All Good Things…

It's been over 10 years and 22 films in the making, and Marvel Studios' epic tale of the Mad Titan, Thanos, and his Infinity Gauntlet finally comes to an epic conclusion with Avengers: Endgame. For the sake of everyone involved, this review will try to remain as spoiler-free as possible, being overly vague in areas and speaking more on the impact of the film -- and the series -- and less on specific details. Thank you for understanding.

Avengers: Endgame opens up in Missouri while the events of Infinity War are still going on, then jumps ahead to 21 days after the Decimation, the ominous moniker given to Thanos' devastating finger snap. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) are adrift in the Guardians' ship, the Benatar, running out of food and oxygen. On Earth, the surviving Avengers, Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), James "Rhodey

Avengers: Endgame Review: A Staggering, Sweeping Epic (Spoiler-Free!)

Avengers: Endgame Review: A Staggering, Sweeping Epic (Spoiler-Free!)
Avengers: Endgame is a staggering, sweeping epic that touches every corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The densely plotted, three hour runtime has emotional highs that will hit fandom like a freight train. The details do get hazy. There are points where the film feels like an avalanche of exposition. Thankfully the labyrinth becomes clear for an ass-kicking finale. This review is spoiler free.

The world is devastated by the horrific aftermath of the Infinity War. Half the planet's life has vanished. Sorrow and failure have overtaken the survivors. The remaining Avengers, especially Thor (Chris Hemsworth), are consumed with guilt. As Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) search for some kind of response. They are joined by a powerful new ally, Carol "Captain Marvel" Danvers (Brie Larson), whose abilities to travel through space are critical.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, a stroke of random

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper, and Josh Brolin.

Synopsis:

The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”

After having just consumed the appropriately mammoth-sized (for both narrative scope and beefy 3-hour running time) Avengers: Endgame, one word comes to mind, and it’s a word that has never been associated with just about anything regarding the whole of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; finality. The rabid fanbase is going to feel closure for one of the saga’s many self-anointed phases for the very first time. Avengers: Endgame opens with

Avengers: Endgame Review Round-Up: An Epic, Must-See Love Letter To Fans

Last night, Avengers: Endgame finally had its world premiere in Los Angeles. And in the hours that followed, social media saw a wave of glowing responses from viewers praising the film as an epic conclusion to the McU’s first era.

Now that the review embargo has lifted though, we can see how this positive buzz translates into full-length opinions. And sure enough, the consensus is that co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo have delivered an ambitious and engrossing love letter to a decade of superhero cinema that may even live up to the ridiculous levels of hype that it’s had to contend with.

Here’s just a sampling of what the critics are saying:

A gargantuan film by any standard, this three-hour extravaganza shuffles back into the action numerous significant characters seen in recent Marvel films as it wraps up an epic story in which the survival of

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’
Spoiler Alert: The following review contains mild spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame.”

The culmination of 10 years and more than twice as many movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Avengers: Endgame” promises closure where its predecessor, “Avengers: Infinity War,” sowed chaos. That film — which revealed that the cookie-cutter uniformity of all those McU movies had been part of an unprecedented master plan — infamously wrapped with a snap: a gesture that, when performed by a supervillain armed with the six Infinity Stones, was capable of wiping out half of all life in the universe.

Audiences have had a year to mourn the loss of Spider-Man, Star-Lord, and Black Panther (whom they’d only just met two months earlier), and to nurture theories as to where directing siblings Anthony and Joe Russo might steer things from here. Maybe all those characters weren’t really dead. Maybe the remaining Avengers just needed to travel inside

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Film Review: Superhero Season Finale Gives Fan Service a Good Name

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Film Review: Superhero Season Finale Gives Fan Service a Good Name
Some movies give us what we want, while others give us what we need. Claire Denis’ “High Life,” for instance, is an intense, tough viewing experience, but it offers important ideas about humanity’s future. “Avengers: Endgame” has almost nothing on its mind but crossing the Ts and dotting the Is of a far-flung superhero saga, but to anyone with even a minor emotional stake in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it has all the fleeting satisfaction of a shot of whipped cream delivered directly from the spray can.

And that’s not a bad thing. You want an arthouse superhero movie, go see “Fast Color.” (And you should.) “Avengers: Endgame” is a popcorn epic, of the extra salt-and-butter variety.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo were known mostly for TV before getting involved with the McU, and they and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (both also Marvel-movie vets) have

Avengers: Endgame shatters midnight box office records in China as tracking rises to $1 billion opening weekend

As I’m sure you’re aware, this week sees the global roll out of Marvel’s hugely-anticipated superhero epic Avengers: Endgame, with the film tracking an unprecedented box office opening of anywhere between $850 million and $1 billion (!) in A Single Weekend.

We won’t know for sure just how big Endgame’s weekend is going to be until the dust settles on Sunday, but it’s certainly got off to an impressive start in China with a “midnight” opening of $26.8 million. That’s close to three times the previous record of $9.1 million set by The Fate of the Furious, and the $8.9 million of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.

Estimated pre-sales for China clock in at $115 million, compared to $65 million for Infinity War, and tracking is pointing to a five-day opening in China the region of $250 million to $300 million. Throw in the same again from the U.S., and a further $400 million internationally,

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Why a $300 Million Opening Could Be Impossible

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Why a $300 Million Opening Could Be Impossible
Avengers: Endgame” is preparing for a staggering debut between $250 million and $268 million in North America alone. Unprecedented anticipation surrounding the Marvel juggernaut has some particularly optimistic box office watchers tossing around even higher numbers, estimating the superhero tentpole could clear nearly $300 million in ticket sales in its first three days.

If any film could reach that benchmark, “Avengers: Endgame” certainly seems like the best contender. But is it even possible for any single film to top that number in one weekend? The naturally limited amount of available seats and showtimes in a given day makes that a difficult pinnacle to reach for any movie. The taxing three hour and one minute runtime of “Endgame” limits the screenings each day, making it all the more challenging.

The most money that the entire domestic box office has ever generated in a single weekend is $314 million, according to Comscore. That came with the

On the 15th Anniversary of 13 Going on 30, Some Fans Are Just Realizing This Crazy Casting Fact

Believe it or not, it's the 15th anniversary of 13 Going on 30, which was released on April 23, 2004. If you watch it for the 200th time (as one should), you might notice something you hadn't before: Brie Larson is in it. She was one of the Six Chicks - yes, the mean girls with the side ponies - led by Judy Greer, aka "Tom-Tom." There's a chance you already knew that, but someone who didn't is Larson's current costar, Mark Ruffalo, who, of course, is 13 Going on 30's main star besides Jennifer Garner. Because Larson had a smaller role, the two never worked together directly on the movie, and Ruffalo just learned about the connection while on the red carpet premiere of the pair's new movie, Avengers: Endgame.

Pretty crazy, huh? Before Larson was an Oscar-nominated actress with leading roles in Room and as Captain Marvel, she was in smaller movies including Sleepover and Hoot.

Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, has revealed that the company is going to compile a video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Stan Lee’s cameos.

Captain Marvel’s Success May Mean We Get An All-Female Avengers Movie

They said it would be Marvel Studios’ first outright flop. They said audiences would be turned off by a feminist superhero. They said that there was ‘panic’ inside Disney at the state of the movie. I am, of course. talking about Captain Marvel, which has gone on to utterly silence its many online naysayers by making more than a billion dollars and becoming the 25th highest grossing film of all-time. Now, it’s looking like that runaway success may light a fire under the long-proposed all-female Avengers spinoff.

The project would unite all of Marvel’s female big hitters, bringing together Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Karen Gillan’s Nebula and Letitia Wright’s Shuri. Hell, why not throw in Mantis, the Wasp and Okoye while you’re at it, too?

Marvel Studios co-president says all of Avengers: Endgame is a spoiler

Marvel Studios co-president and Avengers: Endgame producer Louis D’Esposito says that “all of it is a spoiler” when talking about what he can reveal.

Everyone and their grandmother wants a piece of Avengers: Endgame and even more people are searching for clues about what the film might have in store for us once it hits cinemas.

One person who certainly knows is producer and Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, but he apparently can’t say anything about it as the entire film is a spoiler, which makes him quite nervous. Speaking at Endgame‘s premiere (via ComicBook.com), the producer said:

“I’m a little nervous, actually. Well, you know, there’s a lot of expectation on this film, and I really love it, and when I really like something, I get nervous to share it with everyone.
