The Road To Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. Heralded as the culmination of the 10-year, 22-film long franchise, Endgame is set to close out the Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Stones storyline that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been steadily building up to ever since it launched. I’ve begun my necessary preparations which, for a Marvel fan, entails rewatching all the films leading up to this point. The next logical thought then is: why not make a series out of it.

Last year, I did an entire series on The Road to Avengers: Infinity War leading up to the events of that movie. This year will be the same. Naturally, the series is coined The Road to Avengers: Endgame. The last time around, I did quasi-reviews of the movies, focusing a lot more on the development efforts, technical aspects and comic book mythology references to avoid my pieces from being straight out reviews. But I don’t want to do the exact same thing again since those pieces are already out there for you to read.

For this new series then, I intend on examining the significance and importance of each movie, both in the context of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as Hollywood big-budget movie-making in general. While some movies may not actually hold as much significance in the grander scheme of things, pretty much every MCU movie has had something important to contribute in the overarching narrative, as I plan to highlight through my editorials.

So sit back, relax and reserve a small time over the weekends, which is when I plan for the articles to gradually drop, one for each movie. To make them all easily accessible, I’ll be updating this article with links to each of them, as soon as they become available. You can bookmark this post, or save the link to The Road to Avengers: Endgame. Alternatively, you can subscribe to notifications by allowing them on the prompt so you’re notified of each article as soon as it goes live.

And I’d like to involve you in the journey as well. As you reach each piece, feel free to comment, discuss and share your own thoughts on what the movies mean to you. But please, do keep toxicity and negativity out of the picture, and if you must convey negative thoughts about a movie, do so in a well-mannered way. This is a time for celebration, not for pessimism.

I hope you give my articles a read and let me know what you think about them. Avengers: Endgame is set for release on April 26, 2019. Below are placeholders for each articles, which will be updated with links as and when they become available.
