When the events of Avengers: Infinity War concluded we were all sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see what was going to happen next. Months passed as we saw trailers and other snippets from Endgame but we had no idea what was in store. Finally the time came when I bought my tickets online for my local theater and made my way there. I made sure I had enough time to hit the concessions stands and then settled into my comfy chair with my popcorn and bottled water and watched the events unfold. Now you can recreate this experience at home as Avengers: Endgame is now available on Blu-ray!
For the two people that haven’t seen this movie it takes place after the events of Infinity War. Earth’s mightiest heroes have lost against Thanos and we see the repercussions of his snap decision. However, all is not lost as Scott Lang (aka Ant Man) comes back from the quantum realm and devises a plan to reverse what Thanos has done. What follows is an amazing spectacle that peaks until a massive battle at the end with every superhero from the MCU engaging against the forces of Thanos. This ALONE makes the movie worth watching as you will want to watch this scene again and again to see what all of your favorite heroes do during this massive conflict. If you haven’t seen this movie yet then this is the best way to experience this in your own home. You can also choose to watch this flim with an introduction by the directors Joe and Anthony Russo or just skip right to the action.
The special features for this release are so massive they come on their own separate Blu-ray. The first is A Man Out of Time and this focuses on what went into creating the super soldier of the Avengers: Captain America. There are more than a few deleted scenes including more of Bro Thor and interactions between Tony and Howard Stark. One of the greatest featurettes has to be Remembering Stan Lee as we look back at the man, myth and legend who has created some of the most iconic characters in comic book history. There is also a gag reel as you can see the lighter side of when this film was shot including some hilarious outtakes by the cast of End Game. In Setting the Tone this features on the casting of Robert Downey, Jr. as he was the star of the first MCU film Iron Man. The Russo Brothers explain how they had gotten to this final conclusion with Journey to Endgame. And rounding out the features of this disc we have The Women of the MCU as we go over some of the great female characters in the Marvel universe.
Avengers: Endgame is a must have if you are a fan of the MCU or Avengers movies in general. The only problem is that I cannot rate it higher than 5 out of 5. I would rate it 3000 out of 5 if I could as the film and the special features are that well paired.
