Comment: Avengers Endgame - An End Of An Era

There was an idea, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to fight the battles we never could.

There was also an idea, called the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The idea was to bring together a diverse (or at least getting there) group of remarkable cast and crew, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when Hollywood needed them to create a film franchise we never could on our own. And after 22 films and just under 11 years, we're in the Endgame now.

Due to university schedules differing and the general busyness of existence, Harry and I decided quite late to go and see a midnight screening of Avengers: Endgame. We had two reasons for this: one, we'd never gone to a midnight screening before and wanted to try it and two - spoilers. So, after searching all 6 screenings at our local Cineworld for the best available seats we were all ready to go. And then Harry got the work call. Shift ends at 23:00, movie starts at 23:35... Oh dear.

What to do, what to do. The only thing we could really, given the circumstances (yes, this is all exaggerated for dramatic effect). We booked tickets for the day after as well, just in case. Monday rolls around (the screening is Wednesday) and Harry gets another call. Work has been moved forward a day, leaving Wednesday free for what truly matters in this world - making sure the Thanus rumours weren't true. After a successful midnight screening (even with a surprising amount of movement for an out-of-hours showing), we went home, making sure not to discuss the film to loud to avoid spoilers for everyone else. "But the other tickets!?" I hear you scream at your phone/computer monitor. Well, of course, we had to go again...

From all of us at GamesAppsAndReviews, thank you, Marvel, for the good times over the past decade, and here's to many more.

Thanks for reading, Satamer. I don't feel so good Mr Stark
