Now, time to talk about the elephant in the room. Avengers: Endgame was the conclusion to a decade long story that spanned a multitude of movies. This epic finale to the Marvel cinematic universe was a direct follow up to last years Avengers: Infinity War, which tells the epic story of the Avenger’s goal to defeat Thanos and save not only the world, but the universe. The film, once again, impressively featured the entire cast of the MCU. Although the movie was confusing for newcomers and suffered a long run time, fans who followed the series from the beginning were rewarded with memorable cameos and references. The movie became the number one highest-grossing films and became a media icon.
