First of all: NO SPOILERS.
I mean, really readers? I wouldn’t do that to you.
But I have just returned from Marvel’s Endgame. Yup, my birthday gift to myself was a ticket for opening night. Kind of. It’s 4 AM here, so you can guess how late I was at the showing. But …
Here’s all I have to say. Again, no spoilers. None. I simply couldn’t.
If you’re at all invested in the Marvel films, just go see it.
I still remember sitting down to see Iron Man ten-odd years ago with my younger brother. I remember watching through it, enjoying every minute, chatting through the end credits … I think just because we had nothing better to do and were really excited to have seen such a good superhero flick.
And then it happened. The credits ended. And a new scene played. With Samuel L. Jackson. I turned to my brother, eyes wide, and loudly proclaimed “They’re doing it.”
And they did. Have. And tonight … was the culmination.
What else is there to say? You already know whether or not you plan to see Endgame. I can’t say any more without risking spoilers. Just … I found it worth my time. I’m still digesting everything but …
Years from now, I’ll be able to tell my niece and nephew about how I went to see it, how I saw it start … Just like my parents told me about seeing Star Wars for the first time.
So yeah. If you’re at all interested … face the crowds and go.
And be ready for a ride.
