Driving to school today I could feel a knot forming in my stomach as every second went by. It was foggy, cold, and deathly quiet. A perfect trio for such a morbid day. Today is the day it all ends. Today is “Avengers: Endgame”.
Since 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been slowly building up a network of characters, story-lines, timelines, and events. By 2017, the MCU has made $10,916,958,583 dollars worldwide, plus the money from their more recent films. With millions of fans, millions of dollars, and millions of characters the MCU could go on forever. However, directors and writers at Marvel have other plans. All of the movies we have seen so far are just a part of a phase. Today, April 25, 2019, that phase ends. With 21 very successful movies, the MCU has become a definite part of Pop Culture, and many peoples lives.
A lot of fans worldwide want to know, what comes next? With the death of Stan Lee the creator, writer, and inspiration of Marvel Studios, it is unclear how Marvel plans to continue, and if they will continue as planned. The truth is that we don’t really know. All we can do is have faith because, in the end, we have to “keep moving forward, if its time to go, its time. Nothing lasts forever.” (Stan Lee)
