Major spoilers ahead! Although if I were you and you plan to watch this movie in any capacity, I’d recommend doing it soon. Because I’m so glad I got to watch it last night. It’s only been the opening weekend and the Internet is already rife with spoilers everywhere! I’d be seriously mad if I found out a major plot point from a Youtube comment or some such.
Spoilers spoiler spoilers:
Well, the gist of it is Thanos kills everyone. Divided by two. Wait for the sequel that’s certainly coming next year, probably next summer after Captain Marvel. I’m so glad I called it when I went “yeah this is just part 1 without naming it part 1.” I assume part 2 had already finished filming – you wouldn’t hire Tom Hiddleston for just a five-minute scene would you (would you? I hope not!)?
To note, kudos for the writers who managed to write a cohesive film with 22 major characters. Yes, most of the film is just fighting, lots and lots of fighting, but it felt like everyone got more or less an equal part according to their character weight (Thor, Ironman, and Doctor Strange got more screen time, I felt like, and Thanos, but, I mean, it’s Thanos, so.) It didn’t feel super long (although it did feel like a giant book with chapters, because, again, 22 major characters!) I think the next movie will be better, since Thanos killed half of them and it’s mostly the original Avengers that’re left (plus Rocket and Nebula, I believe, and maybe Antman, Wasp, and Captain Marvel). Anyway it’s gotta be easier to script so maybe we’ll have a more fleshed out story. I bet the first thing they’ll do is resurrect Vision, though, because his body is still around, and the science girl from Wakanda is presumably not dead either.
It lived up to the hype. I was worried it’d suck, but it was good! So my hype was not wasted haha. Now I’m getting ready for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, movie 2, which is still a good half year away, but my hype train is already going. Like I said I rarely get hyped over films or franchises, but more good Harry Potter film tend to make my day.
(Just please don’t name the next film Infinity +1 War, because that’s just silly.)
