    Well, it’s almost here. We got our tickets for tomorrow night, the Thursday preview showing, at 7:30. I understand that the movie premiered in China and now the entire bootleg of the movie is online. Also, people are once again posting spoilers on the Internet. I have been scrupulously avoiding social media where I might see any spoilers.

    Who else is looking forward to this movie?

    Stoked!! Seeing it Sunday in IMAX....There was an article online discussing the best times to get up and go to the bathroom since it’s three hours long....when AntMan/Scott is figuring things out ~30 mins in, and when the Hulk is eating lunch which is about 1hr 15 mins in...

    I have scrupulously avoided anything that might even be accidentally a spoiler. And I will not give any spoilers here.

    I would just say that the movie was awesome. They did a great job weaving a wonderful tapestry. And within that tapestry were great nods to the movies of the past decade. And the events that transpired were mostly things that I have not read any theories about. Our youngest son thinks it may just be the best movie he’s ever seen.

    No spoilers. Went to midnight movie tonight with a group of young teen boys. I loved it. Can’t match the action per second ratio of Infinity War but the second half nearly does. First half lots of character moments with mild action. Very clever story. Lots of emotion in this thing. No spoilers. Highly recommend if you liked infinity war.

    You said what my 16 yr old said. He hated the 1st 2 hours due to little action scenes but it's what these kids were brought up on - 100% action, 0% talking. I loved the whole movie including the 1st 2 hours. Yeah it was devoid of the action of the prior movies, but it was necessary because what do heroes do when half the universe just winked out? Some heroes took it worse than others. But yeah, the last 45 minutes is when you absolutely do not go to the bathroom.

    Let me clarify, the 1st hours are not like watching FireFox, there are tons of action going on, but it isn't in-your-face-every-second action. There aren't many moments in the movie where you could just get up and do a bathroom or food run and not miss something really important.

    Really enjoyed the movie. It was an ending fit for the original Avengers.

    Will enjoy watching it again to just enjoy without expectations.

    We need a thread to discuss what happened with spoiler alerts. Lots of questions after watching it once.

    I really liked it, but truth be told I thought Infinity Wars was better. Maybe because of expectations. Perfect ending to the series, though.

    Well if you are talking Avengers in the title movies, there have been 4 (Avengers, Age of Ultron, Infinity War, Endgame).....but if you are talking total MCU movies, I think it’s 22 or 23

    Not to mention Captain America Civil War, it was essentially an Avengers movie without the name in title.
