On April 26, arguably the biggest movie of 2019 will be released. I'm talking about Avengers: Endgame, a film that recently topped Fandango's list of most anticipated movies of 2019 (besting Captain Marvel and Star Wars: Episode IX). The movie is so big that we may as well declare April Avengers: Endgame month.
When Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, it'll mark the end of an era. It was over ten years ago when Iron Man kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe, paving the road to where we are now. It also began the Thanos storyline as the Mad Titan set out to collect the Infinity Stones.
Here's everything you need to know about Avengers: Endgame.
The footage opens mid-scene with Carol Danvers about to walk out on Cap, Banner, Natasha, Thor, Rhodey, Rocket and Nebula. No sign of Tony Stark or Scott Lang here. When asked where she's going, Carol says matter-of-factly, "To kill Thanos."
The Avengers tell her they usually work as a team, not that it fazes Carol. Rhodey, mind you, doesn't seem to like Carol -- you'd think he'd be cool with a fellow former USAF officer -- and grills her about where she's been all this time. Carol says there are a lot of planets out there who don't have Avengers to help them. That answer seems to suit Cap fine.
Carol says she knows someone who may be able to tell her where Thanos is. But Nebula does one better and says she knows exactly where he is. Nebula recalls how, even when she was disassembled, she wanted to please him. Thanos would explain his plan to her and he would always give the same answer about where he would retire to after it was accomplished.
Rocket uses a hologram to show a planet where, two days prior, the same energy signature that was recorded when Thanos used the Infinity Gauntlet on Earth appeared again. That means Thanos has used the Stones again. "So let's use them to bring everyone back," it's brought up during an exchange between Carol and the Avengers.
Some of the Avengers seem apprehensive about going after Thanos, especially after what happened last time, but Captain Marvel assures them that things will be different, because she's around to help this time.
Then, the scene ends with an all-time line from Captain America.
"Let's go get this son of a bitch."
I'm telling you right now, that's going to get a lot of applause during screenings on April 26.
