The Mad Titan clicked his fingers, and everyone couldn’t believe what happened next! Worst still, we had to wait one whole year to get to see the aftermath of this galactic cliff-hanger! Avengers: Endgame didn’t fail to deliver on its promise though. The epic conclusion to this colossal series of films that spanned over a decade of more than 22 movies has become the biggest grossing movie of all time! So, let’s take a look at what made it so big at the box office!
The final act of this unforgettable collection of films has been described as “an irresistible blend of action and comedy, guaranteeing a sugar rush of delirious enjoyment” and rightly so.
The main reason for its success rests entirely on the slow build up of its characters and then throwing them altogether into what has to be one of the most spectacular showdowns in all movie history. Fans have given years of dedication to the characters in this saga and they have seen their loyalty repaid in full.
And when we look back, it all has been carried by an incredible cast of actors and actresses over the years. With the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Brie Larson and many other big Hollywood names involved.
Over the 22 movies that have all been leading up to this spectacular finale, most have managed to keep a subtle balance between action, drama, spectacular visuals and humor. This is one of the factors behind this movie’s overwhelming success. It all boils down to the studio’s main man, Kevin Feige, who “carefully hired the right creative people to direct these 22 pictures, choosing filmmakers with personality, style and unique voices. From the more serious entries like Infinity War and spy thriller Captain America: The Winter Soldier to the inspired goofy Thor: Ragnarok, buoyant good humour has always been a must”.
One more thing that made it such a runaway success was the sense of shock from the previous movie. Audiences still could not grasp the fact that the main antagonist had won and managed to wipe out half the universe in the process. The fans of the saga indeed needed some kind of resolution and closure.
Over 11 years, fans have been treated to 22 films that expanded across a grand universe before their very eyes. We have got to experience the highs and lows with our favorite superhero characters as they intermingled with each amidst drama, comedy and action. Those not yet ready to part ways with this epic saga can go for a re-watch, with the film being now available on Blu Ray. On the other hand, those ready to move on can actually have a taste of what phase 4 will look like with the newly released Spiderman: Far from home entry!
