AVENGERS ENDGAME

Starring:

Chris Evans          Scarlett Johansson     Robert Downey Jr.

Mark Ruffalo       Chris Hemsworth     Jeremy Renner

Every Journey has an end and Marvel brings our 11-year thrill ride with “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” to an epic and proper conclusion with the film AVENGERS ENDGAME!

Everything has been building toward this moment in time……from the first suit of armor that Tony Stark made when confined to the cave in the desert…. to a war hero frozen in ice…. a GOD from another universe who fell to Earth, a couple of spies with deadly aim and a scientist with some anger management issues that would become the team we call THE AVENGERS!

Last year we saw our defenders fall to the “Mad Titan” Thanos (Josh Brolin) who snapped his fingers and erased half of the galaxy’s population and we lost heroes like Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and the king of Wakanda- Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Endgame opens with fallout around the world with people mysteriously disappearing, society spirals down not being able to cope with the loss.

The Avengers that are left try to move on and locate the missing team members that weren’t in the battle of Wakanda, with Black Widow coordinating the search teams. Steve Rogers leads therapy sessions for people trying to move on from the “event”.

While they put up a strong front, the Avengers also are still trying to figure out where Thanos went and how to get the gauntlet to possibly use it to get their friends back. Dr. Banner explains that they are short-handed this time if they face Thanos, only to be corrected by newcomer Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Capt. Marvel “No this time you have me!”

If you are looking for spoilers and answers to those questions that have been burning in your soul, you won’t find them here! You need to get one of the few available tickets left and GO SEE AVENGERS ENDGAME this weekend!!!
