Avengers assemble for ‘Endgame’ recap sing-along
This week, all we can really think about Avengers: Endgame. Luckily, we’re getting plenty of content to hold us over until the big premiere.
Most recently, the cast got together for a singalong on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for a superhero-themed version of “We Didn’t Start The Fire” by Billy Joel.
Last year, they did the same thing except with the Brady Bunch theme song. You can watch that one for laughs below.
This year’s edition is pretty iconic and definitely got us pumped to see the movie. It basically recaps all of the MCU movies in one catchy song. You can watch it for yourself below.
There is no denying the film is going to be a huge success. It already has broken major records in ticket sales ahead of its release.
For one, it’s selling five times as many tickets as Infinity War during its first week of presales. This should come as no surprise with the demand of tickets being crazy enough for fans to spend upward of $15,000 for a pair.
Also, the film has broken the record for Atom Tickets’ best-selling movie of all time in only 10 days.
Currently the Marvel movie is estimated to open between $230 million to $283 million domestically. Also, it has a worldwide projection of an astounding $800 million.
The film celebrated its world premiere Monday, and the first reactions were super positive.
In anticipation for the big debut, some theaters have had to open 24 hours a day from this Thursday to Sunday to meet high demands. Those demands partly have to do with the fact that the film is going to be long. It has a leaked runtime of more than three hours, which is pretty impressive considering there is some fake footage in the trailers to throw off potential spoilers.
It was previously announced that Endgame would close out Phase 3 of the MCU. However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed he now has other plans.
Avengers: Endgame will be monumental for so many ways. For one, it will feature the final cameo by Marvel legend Stan Lee, who passed away last year at age 95. Then, it was revealed that Marvel actually compiled all of Lee’s cameos and behind-the-scenes footage into a video, that they might release with the Endgame DVD.
In other news, Twitter users were recently granted tons of emojis of nearly all the characters in the film.
While you’re online playing with all the new MCU emojis, be careful to avoid possible spoilers as footage from the film is reportedly leaked and available online.
Also, one major revelation about who Hawkeye was training in archery in one of the trailers has finally been revealed.
We’re only four days away from the release of one of the most highly anticipated films in MCU history. Yesterday, the franchise released a new teaser that gave us a first look at Valkyrie.
You can check that out below.
If you’re a die-hard MCU fan, you can snag a Marvel Movie Marathon ticket from AMC. The chain confirmed they would be showing a 59-hour marathon of all 22 Marvel films leading up to Endgame at select theaters starting today.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters this Friday, April 26.
