I watched it Friday in the early afternoon. Beating the crowd.
They could have ended it much better.
A more thrilling end would have been to have Thanos from a parallel universe enter the equation. That Thanos a complete opposite. A good guy, that feels the need to eliminate his evil counterpart.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Obliterates Records With $1.2 Billion Global Debut
It’s truly the Avengers’ world. The opening weekend of “Avengers: Endgame” demolished box office records with a stunning $350 million in North America and $1.2 billion worldwide.

Disney-Marvel’s fourth and final Avengers superhero movie has captivated moviegoers, accounting for more than four of every five tickets sold domestically. “Avengers: Endgame” topped the year-old “Avengers: Infinity War” records by nearly $100 million domestically and a jaw-dropping $560 million worldwide. China generated an astounding $329 million over its five-day launch weekend.

The film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, has a star-studded cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin.




“Avengrs: Endgame” is the 22nd movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which launched in 2008 with “Iron Man.” Those films have now eclipsed $19 billion in worldwide box office. Here’s a rundown of all the records “Endgame” will break or has already broken this weekend.

“‘Endgame’ represents the culmination of a decade long commitment of Marvel to the audience and the fans devotion to the beloved characters of the MCU,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. “This massive and historic debut shows that by delivering consistently great movies coupled with characters inhabited by perhaps the most perfectly cast group of actors in cinematic history, Marvel has literally rewritten the rule book and in the process has made box office history.”

Critics have strongly supported “Avengers: Endgame” with a 96% score from Rotten Tomatoes — the second best ever earned by a Marvel release after “Black Panther” at 97%. ComScore/Screen Engine reported that 61% of this weekend’s North American audience bought their tickets online ahead of time.

“Avengers: Endgame” is providing a badly needed jolt to the North American box office, which for 2019 was down 16.7% to $2.94 billion as of April 24. As of Sunday, the gap had dropped to 13.3%, according to Comscore.

“The Avengers, by assembling the biggest movie debut in history, have proven that another of their superpowers is the ability to knock several percentage points off the year-to-date deficit,” Dergarabedian said. “‘Endgame’ has truly started the momentum rolling on potentially the biggest revenue generating summer (and year) in box office history.”

Imax reported that “Avengers: Endgame” broke its worldwide opening record with $91.5 million, 92% above previous record-holder “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office,” said Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn. “Though ‘Endgame’ is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend’s monumental success is a testament to the world they’ve envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world.”

I was satisfied with Thanos' fate. It seemed just.

Well, I watched it today. I thought it was very good overall.

I like the new Hulk. I believe this version has been depicted at times in the comics.

"I suppose MCU will continue the Iron-Man character with a new actor. I'm guessing Robert Downey Jr. got too expensive. Maybe there will be a new Black Widow as well, though she's not nearly as popular, so conceivably she could be abandoned. As for Vision, my speculation is that since they needed the Infinity Stone that sustained him, he couldn't be brought back."I suppose MCU will continue the Iron-Man character with a new actor.

Okay that's why I don't see it because I can't edit. So I typed it in manually. lol

The reason he doesn't come back is because he was killed before the snap of the fingers. Tony makes everyone promise/agree not to change anything else because he is afraid it could affect his daughters arrival. So, the only thing they can change is who died by Thanos snapping his fingers.

Avengers: Endgame tally.

"Altogether, 4 or 5 heroes are now gone. Tony Stark - dead. Though Iron Man will surely be replaced. Black Widow - dead. Vision - dead. Captain America - Now old and out of the picture. The remaining question mark is Nick Fury. Even though he didn't appear in the great battle, he wasn't in the Infinity War battle either."

Can you elaborate on what that may mean? What will the next phase be like?

I read that here...

MCU Timeline Shifts as ‘Spider Man: Far From Home’ Confirmed as Phase Three Finale, Not ‘Endgame’

While there are numerous Phase Four movies in development, none have been officially announced or dated by Marvel Studios.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has kept the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline under lock and key in the lead up to this weekend’s “Avengers: Endgame,” but he did surprise fans at a recent fan event in Shanghai (via Newsweek) by confirming that “Endgame” is not the last chapter in Phase Three of the MCU.

The upcoming “Spider Man: Far From Home,” set for release this July, is actually the final installment of Phase Three, which began with “Captain America: Civil War” in 2016
and has included such beloved MCU entries as “Black Panther” and “Thor: Ragnarok.”

-----------------

As for what Phase Four holds in store for the MCU, expect Feige to start announcing titles and dates some time after “Endgame” hits theaters. Franchises such as “Black Panther,” “Captain Marvel,” and “Doctor Strange” are all expected to land sequels, while new franchises to the MCU will include Chloe Zhao’s “The Eternals” and Daniel Destin Cretton’s “Shang-Chi.” Scarlett Johansson’s fan favorite Black Widow will also be getting her first standalone movie. Many of these projects are in development, but Feige and Marvel have made it a priority not to announce any Phase Four details prior to “Endgame.” The first Phase Four movie is already set for May 1, 2020.
