Avengers: Infinity War had left fans shell shocked by ending it on an wildly unpredictable note.

Avengers: Endgame starts few weeks after the chaos and the remaining superheroes are left dispirited and weak. They want to avenge the loss of their loved ones. But will revenge itself let them live in peace?

Avengers: Endgame is not just any superhero film. It is the culmination of more than twenty movies in the Marvel cinematic universe.

However, none of the entries go unnoticed. Almost ninety percent of the characters gets an applause from the audience at their introduction.

Another interesting thing about the franchise is showing the most powerful characters in a comical way. Hulk's transformation is just hilarious and he steals the show in his entry scenes.

There is that Big Lebowski vibe to his character that is addressed by the Ironman character in a scene. Avengers has lots of drama but the conversations are lively and funnier all the time. The references to other movies are hilarious.

Audience and fans expect to see a grand spectacle of action episodes from a movie of this scale. The directors are aware of it, but they don't just provide them all the time. They make us wait for it with proper buildup to the final act. Marvel Cinematic Universe has changed the outlook of superhero films by making drama a vital part of the storytelling.

Not many movies were successful in giving a perfect ending to a popular franchise.

The ending will leave a lump in the throat for fans for sure even though it isn't as heartbreaking as the ending of Infinity War.
