Avengers: Endgame celebrates anniversary as the most highest-grossing movie of all timeMay 3, 2020
Believe it or not, a whole year has passed since all the heroes from across Marvel’s Cinematic Universe stood side by side in the fight against Thanos and his army in Avengers: Endgame, released on April 26, 2019.
Avengers: Endgame has become the most highest-grossing movie of all time with a record of 2.8 billion dollars in revenue and many satisfied fans worldwide.
One of the most memorable parts of Endgame was when Captain America picked up Thor’s hammer for the first time and shocked everyone in the audience to thundering applause in the movie theater. There is no doubt that will forever be an iconic moment in modern movie history. It took over 10 years of Marvel movies to get to Avengers: Endgame and finally gather all the superheroes in one giant Avengers team.
Endgame is the second most recent Marvel movie (Endgame was followed by Spider-man: Far from home). The next Marvel movie coming up is Black Widow which might possibly be released on Disney + instead of the movie theaters in the near future.
Why Black Widow might premiere on Disney + is of course because of the current situation with the virus. All movie theaters are closed and at the time of posting this, there is still a curfew and mandatory home isolation for most people in the US.
Streaming has increased significantly now that the situation is as it is, so Disney + can probably expect another big boost of subscribers when (and if) the latest Marvel movie is released directly to the platform.
Marvel directors Anthony and Joe Russo hosted a virtual event with fans on Monday night to watch the movie live and remember the production of the highest-grossing movie of all time. They also went live on their Instagram Story to talk to Robert Downey Jr., who we know ended his story arc as Tony Stark in Endgame after over 10 years of mantling the role.
Downey Jr. mentioned that he remembers when they filmed his very last scene and the chemistry he felt with his role. He also revealed that the line from the movie “I love you 3,000” was originally something his son used to say to him in real life.
The directors also shared a video on their Twitter of Downey Jr.’s final day on production with Chris Evans, who of course also ended his character arc as Captain America at the end of Endgame.
Given the current situation in the world, I finally want to make use of Tony Stark’s last lines in Endgame which was a recorded message to his daughter in the film, which in a way fits a little into how the world is doing right now during the pandemic and maybe giving hope for the future.
“Everybody wants a happy ending, right? But it doesn’t always roll that way. Maybe this time. I’m hoping if you play this back, it’s in celebration. I hope families are reunited. I hope we get it back, in somewhat like a normal version of the planet has been restored, if there ever was such a thing.”
