Following the Time Skip, Thor has established a "New Asgard" for the surviving Asgardian refugees in Norway. This is similar to the plot of J. Michael Straczynski's Thor run, which saw Thor rebuilding Asgard in Oklahoma after the events of Ragnarok. Thor having become a drunken, disheveled wreck with long, messy hair was inspired by Jason Aaron's Thor (2014) run. In addition, New Asgard is located in Tønsberg, Norway, a location previously seen in the prologue sequences of both Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). See more »
Tony Stark drives an Audi e-tron gt, which is a fully electric concept car. When he arrives at the Avengers headquarters a loud combustion engine race car sound is heard. However, electric vehicles are a risk to visually-impaired pedestrians, and many countries have legislation requiring them to make a noise ; someone with Tony Stark's technical capability ( and ego ) may well have added a noise-generator which mimics a powerful engine.

IMAX version shown at AMC in Shelby, MI was only about 2.5hrs long! Appears that there are two versions being shown. Movie was to start at 12:30p.m. At that time previews to other shows started. The actual Avengers Endgame movie started about 12:50p.m. and ended around 3:20p.m. The movie is stated on the Internet as 3 hrs and 2 minutes long! See more »
Overall an epic conclusion but inferior to Infinity War's pace and energy (SPOILER FREE)
This is probably the highest 8/10 I could give for an 8/10 movie.
There are some very good moments in Endgame and that's coming from a long standing MCU fan growing up with these movies. In creating an extensive and emotional journey for a lot of the MCU characters, it absolutely succeeds.
Endgame ultimately is an excellent conclusion to over 10 years of film but I feel the plot's pacing and direction is really lacking to Infinity War, which 'trimmed the fat' and was much more focused and energetic. Granted, Endgame takes risks but this might be a disappointment to some fans with its slower pace that focuses on character development over action and intense sequences. The run time probably should be shorter or streamlined. Less cuts and motion blur during fight scenes would've made it easier to track fights as well.
Respect for the Russo Brothers for taking the direction they did with Endgame and it really does satisfy but Infinity War is overall a more entertaining movie. It's not the best MCU movie but I can't dispute its great conclusion.
