Over the last 11 years, Marvel Studios has built a franchise unlike anything the movie world has ever seen before. More than just launching an incredible run of multiple series that each center on unique characters and establish their own specific aesthetics, they’ve also maintained an immensely complex continuity that expands with each new story. Every filmmaker who contributes to the universe adds a new piece to the puzzle, carving out something different and diverse that is also crafted to add to the bigger picture.new movies 2019 avengers endgame
Within this approach there are gradients, and it results in two basic kinds of Marvel Studios films. On one side you have titles like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy, which find their own corner of the expansive world and use that specific real estate for relatively contained storytelling. On the other side there are titles like The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War, which are designed with the entire scope of the franchise in mind, and utilize specific details and elements of the larger continuity to create something both reflective and new.avengers endgame
As tremendous and exceptional as the movies in the former category can be (and that’s pretty extreme), it’s those in the latter that make the Marvel Cinematic Universe truly special. Simply making a cogent and entertaining blockbuster is a ridiculous challenge all by itself, so you’d think that simultaneously incorporating the massive details of multiple other massive films would be practically impossible. And yet, the studio has been successful time and time again.new movies 2019

The film was announced in October 2014 as Avengers new movies 2019
Infinity War – Part 2. The Russo brothers came on board to direct in April 2015, and by May, Markus and McFeely signed on to write the script for the film. In July 2016, Marvel removed the film’s title, and it remained untitled until its official title was revealed in December 2018. Filming began in August 2017 at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia, shooting back-to-back with Infinity War, and ended in January 2018. Additional filming took place in the Metro and Downtown Atlanta areas, New York, and Scotland. With an estimated budget of $356 million, it is one of the most expensive films ever made.
Avengers: Endgame was widely anticipated, and Disney backed the film with extensive marketing campaigns. It premiered in Los Angeles on April 22, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on April 26, 2019, in IMAX and 3D. The film received praise for its direction, acting, musical score, action sequences, visual effects, and emotional weight, with critics lauding its culmination of the 22-film story. It has grossed nearly $2.8 billion worldwide, surpassing Infinity War’s entire theatrical run in just eleven days and breaking numerous box office records, including becoming the highest-grossing film of all time, overtaking Avatar (2009).avengers endgame
This brings us to Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: new movies 2019
Endgame – a film that has been specifically described over the last four-and-a-half years as the movie that would be the ultimate capstone for the franchise, and exist as the story to which all of the previous 21 chapters have been leading. Obviously that’s an incredible amount of hype, and the end result is that it’s now considered one of the most anticipated releases in history… but what’s even more utterly spectacular is the fact that every ounce of that hype is totally justified.
Simply put, Avengers: Endgame is one of the most ambitious, entertaining, emotional, and stunning blockbusters we’ve ever seen, and the best film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon thus far.
Based on a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who previously wrote four of the best films in this franchise), the movie picks up following the shattering events of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, and finds the surviving heroes (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, and Brie Larson) figuring out how to move on after Thanos (Josh Brolin) successfully managed to collect all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of all life in existence.
The depression and devastation is real following their defeat, but the titular team, living up to their name, is not ready to give up. Using both their brawn and their brains, they concoct a plan that they hope will not only lead to defeating the Mad Titan, but also right the horrific wrong that has been inflicted on the universe.
Not that the film doesn’t have its quieter moments. After playing (generously) third fiddle in Infinity War, Chris Evans’s Captain America and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow have considerably beefed-up roles, with Evans in particular inspiring some punch-the-air moments that had the crowd at my screening in raptures.
On the lighter side of things, some fan-favourite characters from Thor: Ragnarok make a return, and Paul Rudd adds buckets of wide-eyed enthusiasm as Ant-Man/Scott Lang (who definitely works better in these team-up movies).
Robert Downey Jr, meanwhile, brings some real pathos to Tony Stark (the man who started it all in 2008’s Iron Man) while Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan continues to expand on her murderous cyborg Nebula.
Is the film perfect? Well, no. A comedy side-plot involving Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is played too broad, and some of the team-ups in the final battle feel a bit too much like fan service.
Also, after painting quite a nuanced portrait of Josh Brolin’s Thanos in the previous film, Endgame throws away a lot of this characterisation, making him a far less involved and more two-dimensional threat by the story’s close.
It’s also probably a little too long at a bladder-bursting three hours and one minute. Still, it’s hard to begrudge the Marvel Cinematic Universe getting a little self-indulgent in what largely amounts to a 181 minute-long victory lap.
Somehow, some way, Marvel did what nobody else could and successfully adapted the sprawling, overlapping world of comic-book superheroes to screen. Once, it would have seemed impossible. I was sitting near a 14-year-old fan during the Endgame screening, and I couldn’t imagine how I would have reacted as a teenage comic-book fan to this vibrant, bizarre world coming to life in front of me.
