SPOILERS AHEAD PLEASE DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS MOVIE YET!
Instead of a book review today, I decided to share my thoughts about the newest and last edition to Marvel’s Avengers. Sure we are still getting Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, Doctor Strange 2, and some TV shows. (BUCKY IS GETTING A TV SHOW WITH FALCON……I CANNOT WAIT!! GAHHHHH) But we will never get another movie with the original 6 again.
This is where all the spoilers began so PLEASE go back if you haven’t seen this movie! Please I beg you!!!
This movie was everything I could have asked for, for the last Avengers movie ever. Looking back, even though this movie was super depressing, everything about this movie was perfection. Actually one thing that made me really mad was Thor being fat. Like what?! I know he cracked after killing Thanos but did he really have to have a pot belly the ENTIRE movie?!? Other than that this movie was perfection.
Now before I get hate for saying that Nat’s and Tony’s deaths were not perfection let me explain. Nat’s death was the first of the many times I cried during this movie. I was heart broken to see Natasha die. Sure, she wasn’t a favorite but I still loved her character so much. I had a deep connection with her, like all the other Marvel characters. I hated that she died. I hated when Tony died, but their deaths were key to the plot of the movie. They sacrificed themselves for the greater good.
Whatever it takes
*takes a deep breathe* Tony’s death was so heart wrenching. *starts tearing up* Tony throughout the series has had the GREATEST character development. He went from a cocky, arrogant, selfish man to someone who put his life on the line time and time again before he finally died.
Throughout the series, we saw him change. We saw him want to marry Pepper and have a kid. Steve reprimanded Tony a few times and it also changed him for the greater good.
I have to say that even though I saw devastated by Tony’s death, he had to die. Looking back, they have been hinting at this death from the beginning. I was crying so hard after he died, it wasn’t funny. His funeral was so devastating and ughhhh why did he have to die?!?
The climax of this movie though was AMAZING! How crap was it good. I was crying my eyes out while it was Thor, Tony, and Steve fighting Thanos alone right after he bombed their headquarters. I thought for sure the one or all of them were going to die there. I hardly even watched the scene because I was crying so hard. Yes, I am THAT emotional.
Then when Steve picked up the hammer I stopped crying and was cheering so loud that my friend elbowed me because I was too loud. I then proceeded to cry again because I thought the was it for him. #tooemotionalformyowngood
After Tony and Thor were knocked down and it was Steve alone and he stood up against Thanos’ army, I thought that was the end. I was so devastated until all the sling rings started to appear. I was laughing and doing a happy dance in my chair. Seriously I was so happy I nearly started running around the theater cheering.
Then I saw Peter and Bucky and I literally was majorly fangirling and flipping out because I knew that is was all going to be okay. Until Tony risked his life for everyone and died. 😭😭😭😭
I was curious after that to see what they would do with Steve and then we found out. He went back to the 40s and stayed with Peggy. *gets chocked up* By this time I was sobbing again because #emotional. He came back as an old man and literally I was not ready for that at all. Heck I’m about to start crying all over again just thinking about all of this.
Another thing that made me flip out was the fact that Steve was wearing his star and Avengers pin again. In Civil War, he wasn’t wearing his pin, in Infinity Wars, he wasn’t wearing his star so I was so excited to see him wearing them again!!!
I know that some people may have gotten upset over the fact that Steve gave his shield to Sam and not Bucky but I know why. Bucky is specifically the Winter Soldier/his best friend. Steve knows him better than anyone and knew that he has a bigger part to play than becoming the next him. He knew that Bucky would always be his best friend. He didn’t want Bucky to become him.
As much as I wanted Bucky to become the next Captain America, I know why Steve didn’t choose him. Sam would fit the role better, even though he would NEVER be as good as Steve Rodgers. Those are big shoes to fill that no one will ever be able to fill.
Overall, I was very pleased with this movie and I am super happy with how they ended it. Don’t get me wrong, I really wish that these movies could go on but all good things have to come to an end……sadly. I literally have been so messed up since the end of this movie. I have loved and will always love Avengers. No one can ever change that!
I feel in love with the series at the age of 11 when I watched Captain America: The First Avenger for the first time. I have loved it ever since. Y’all this is the end. This literally is the end of the Avengers……this is the end of the story. I don’t think I will ever be emotionally strong enough to accept that though. This series has been like a book and I still have a hangover from it. These characters are forever going to be some of my all time favorites. They will forever be a huge part of my life. This series is going to forever be an all time favorite. Nothing will ever change that.
Now excuse me while I go cry myself another river.
This movie got a 5 out of 5 for me.
