Avengers: Infinity War is currently the longest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) at 156 minutes. But the Russo Brothers, who co-directed the film have frequently hinted that the follow-up will be in the vicinity of 180 minutes. Given the scope of this epic storyline and all the characters involved, there’s enough reason to believe that yes, Avengers: Endgame will be the longest film, not only in the MCU, but also in the entire superhero genre. They’re back!

Some characters were noticeably absent in Avengers: Infinity War. Hawkeye/Clint Barton was MIA. Ant-Man was nowhere to be found. The Wasp was absent and so was Valkyrie. Also non-existent were the Sakaarian heroes, Thor’s newfound allies from Thor: Ragnarok led by the ever-gentle Korg. But they’re set for a comeback in Avengers: Endgame — or at least Hawkeye (as the much darker Ronin), Ant-Man, and The Wasp. No word yet, though, if Valkyrie and the Sakaraarians will be back, too. The Endgame will have a mind game

Expect an extravaganza of fight scenes in Avengers: Endgame, as that’s the norm for a MCU film. But expect some sort of mind games, too, perhaps more than usual. The term endgame is generally used to refer to the latter stages of a chess match, where strategy is at a premium given a major reduction in pieces. The same dynamic will likely be at play in Avengers: Endgame. After all, Thor and company aren’t likely to overpower a much more powerful Thanos, so they will need to outwit him instead. It will mark an end . . . for something

Producer Kevin Paige guarantees “a definite ending” at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame. What will end is Phase Three of the fabled MCU, whose previous 22 films, beginning with Iron Man in 2008, all lead to this much-anticipated movie. As Paige points out, “the best stories do come to an end,” and this particular one will end in Avengers: Endgame, likely with a flourish. It’ll be a continuation, too

Avengers: Endgame will be one of the biggest ever in history. It is, after all, part of the Marvel franchise, whose success transcends cinema and spans the entire spectrum within the entertainment industry. It has spawned a range of official merchandise, from toys to comic book tie-ins to t-shirts to games. The multibillion franchise, which is noticeably transitioning into featuring superheroines in more prominent roles, has also inspired a number of unofficial content, notably in the world of gaming.

Natural Powers from Sandlot Games is a superhero game that takes inspiration from Marvel (and even DC), particularly in the case of putting female characters front and center, to create their own universe.

While unofficial, such a game nonetheless satiates fans’ great interest in the genre, which figures to continue its unprecedented wave of popularity. That alone means Avengers: Endgame will not necessarily be the end for the Marvel empire. There’ll be new characters and story arcs, including a possible X-Men movie. There’s just too much money to be made not to keep on going.

Yes, anticipation for Avengers: Endgame is definitely sky-high, and every trailer and poster is just ramping up the hype even more. And from all indications, the film just might justify all this attention. So, do mark your calendars, or wait for further announcements as regards release dates here in Latin America.
