One of the most anticipated films of the year has arrived in the Illawarra.
Avengers Endgame sees the remaining Avengers and their allies reassembling for an emotional last stand following the elimination of half of all life in the universe at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War - bringing the smash hit series to an explosive end.
So did Marvel deliver? If early reports are anything to go by, they did that and MORE:
'#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic - a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it... If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! '
'#AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned..
'#AvengersEndgame is an astonishing, amazing film. I’ve never seen anything like it. This movie is everything I wanted to be and SO much more. Amazing.'
'There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as the credits rolled for #AvengersEndgame'
'I was not prepared for the range of emotions that #Endgame put me through, from utter despair to pure elation. I laughed, I cried, I wished Tony Stark was my dad'
'I laughed, I cried, I cried, I cheered, I laughed, I cried again and then the entire audience gave it a massive standing ovation. And then I cried again. Be ready, kids. Be. Ready.'
'Fans are going to go APES**T.'
'#AvengersEndgame is filled with so much comic book awesomeness that you may not be ready! Great blend of action, emotion and humor while keeping the stakes high throughout. Truly an achievement in blockbuster filmmaking.'
