It has been over a decade since the release of the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we have been taken on a ride of twenty-one films leading to this twenty-second. The Infinity Saga has come to an end and it was a grand journey.
Marvel decided to wrap up this in such grand style, the movie is three hours long and you will not want to miss a minute of it.
The jokes are packed, the drama is top class and the action is the best I have seen in the MCU. The role of Captain Marvel in the film cannot be underplayed as she did have a great effect.

This movie is just marvelous, every idea or hope you may have had on how this movie was going to turn out, get ready to have them smashed. Avengers Endgame does not play to the tune of any fan theory, but charts its own course, and does it magnificently.

Our heroes were up against what seemed like an impossible task to find Thanos and undo what he has done in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). It seemed like a simple plot, if Thanos by a snap of a finger can make half the universe population disappear then another snap of the fingers with the stones can bring them back.

Here is the challenge, Thanos was found but he was powerless to face the remaining Avengers left as the snap of the finger with the stones took a whole lot out of him. Also, he further made drained himself by destroying the stones.
With that plan hitting a dead end, the team decided to keep the universe in order as the disappearance of half its occupant was causing a lot of chaos.

Remember many things were happening around the world when Thanos snapped his finger, and we get to see Scott Lang (Antman) return from the quantum realm and he is confused.
It has been fives years since Thanos snapped his finger and Scott upon his return could tell that something was wrong. He goes to the Avengers compound and he is briefed of what has happened since he has been gone. He tells them that time in the quantum realm is not the same in the real world. He says the five years it was in the real world was to him five hours. He then suggest that they can use this knowledge to see if they can make a time machine.

Here is where this film changes things we all know about movies when it comes to time travel. We then get schooled on why every movie we know, Back to the Future, Terminator and more have lied to us. Because, if you travel to the past, that past becomes your future and your former present becomes the past, which can’t now be changed by your new future.

Amazing stuff this movie. It is a critical and commercial success breaking box office records everywhere. It is set to make over $2 billion and we are left to guess where it will end.

The movie has no end scenes and we are left to wonder what the next phase will be and with the exit of some characters what’s next?
