The Inevitable End

Why Avengers Endgame struck a Core with all that watched

The Inevitable End

Justin De Leon, Staff Writer

This is it, over 10 years of storytelling, 21 films, and billions of fans and enthusiasts, all coming to an end as well a new beginning for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel as a whole. The first MCU movie was Iron Man, this is also the first movie I ever watched in a Movie theater, which is why Avengers Endgame has struck me to my innermost core. The MCU has spanned over 3 quarters of my own life, making it a part of my childhood and adolescence, and I truly believe this is true for many of my friends, as well as an innumerable amount of people.

Avengers Endgame could be best described as an emotional rollercoaster times infinity (hehe). It is jam-packed with many surprises that are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. But this article isn’t about how good it is or what it feels like watching it, no, this is about what the impact the movie had on all that watched.

For those who love comic books, myself included, this movie can only be described as utterly iconic, stupendously epic, and flat-out insane. The team-ups, the powers, the gadgets, and the clashes between the Mad Titan known as Thanos all brought together in one phenomenal film, I could easily consider this movie our generation’s Citizen Kane. It may not have ultra dramatic acting that is Oscar-worthy or a story that is 10/10 for all critics, but what it does have are impact and influence. The plethora of emotions one feels during this movie is crazy, never have I ever felt this much excitement and joy, as well as pain and mourning all in one movie. This movie is best described as your favorite song, you hear it constantly, but it always ends, no matter how many times you hear it, it ends and you want more and more of it.

While many things in this movie are at times confusing and mind-boggling, it still appeals to all and it executes the exact properties of a perfect superhero movie, and for that, I could not be more grateful.

This movie brings a decade of amazing cinematography and compelling storytelling to an end that couldn’t have been any better. For the sake of not spoiling the movie, my best advice is to be prepared, grab your popcorn, grab the tissues, and get ready for one of the greatest films ever made. This is why it has struck a core with all that watched it, although it may have been an insane emotional blow, to quote the great Tony Stark known worldwide as Iron Man, “Don’t feel bad about this, part of the journey is the end.”
