I have done my best to keep this spoiler-free (and it wasn’t easy, believe me), and will tag any potential spoilers with**.
I don’t really know what to say about this film, the closing act of a story arc that has captivated us for eleven years. In 2008, before Disney bought Marvel, before superhero swag was omnipresent in stores, before most of us knew what a “Mjolnir” was, Marvel took a risk, and produced its first self-financed film: Ironman.
11 years and 21 films later, the same studio, now backed by Disney, has brought us the finale to the story that began with just Tony Stark in a cave, a bucket of tools, and an idea.
Last year, when I wrote my review of ‘Infinity War’, I wondered if the payoff in the fourth Avengers movie would be worth the wait. I also described Infinity War as ‘the most ambitious superhero movie ever made’, and, well, if Infinity War was ten years of ambition, Endgame is the culmination of that ambition.

As Marvel’s Phase 2 comes to an end this year, Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron sets off the summer blockbusters as one has come to expect from the franchise. There are CGI sequences, political commentary, superhero banter, and fiery explosions all set to a swelling score on an international backdrop. While we see familiar themes and characters throughout the film, it is the new faces, questions and challenges set forth for the Avengers that ultimately allow for a narrative shift that has me looking forward to Phase 3.
Some (vague) spoilers ahead, Sweetie!
