#AvengerEndgame is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.) ♥️💙💜

I just can’t remember a cinematic experience like the one I just had with #AvengersEndgame. Simply blown away. I feel like that movie was made for every Marvel fan, everywhere.

#AvengersEndgame is A LOT. Too much at times. But wow the payoff is huge. Left me proud to have invested over a decade in a franchise that delivers an inspiring exploration of what it means to be family & a hero. (Endgame also now has one of my favorite shots in the entire MCU.)

This can’t be understated: #AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned. pic.twitter.com/5LvFw9UEBQ

Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It’s the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.

Man #AvengersEndgame kicked my ass. It was an epic conclusion to 11 years of films. It had laughs, incredible action and absolute emotional rollercoaster. It was the series finale for these cast of characters that I had been hoping for. Congrats to all for pulling off the feat.

I was not prepared for the range of emotions that #Endgame put me through, from utter despair to pure elation. I laughed, I cried, I wished Tony Stark was my dad.

#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0

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.
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.
