Avengers Endgame (no spoilers)

[ Listen to article ]

Like quite a few Galway geeks it appears, I queued up early to see Avengers Endgame.

This was taken around 10pm as we waited for the one past midnight showing. For once I walked in pretty unspoiled and it was well worth the wait. I can’t go into what I liked without spoilers but can say that I was surprised, I laughed a fair bit, I teared up and was just plain wowed in parts. They made bold choices.

The MCU could completely stop right here. The groundwork is laid for the future but with a light touch. No cliffhangers, just a nice view to what could be. I sincerely hope it doesn’t stop here and once we walk into the far distance I’m sure a few cliffs might appear to hang off of. But for Endgame, they tied off all of the proceeding movies, let us stay in the moment with just a light hint that other stories can be told.
