A year after its official release, the most popular blockbuster of all time Avengers: Endgame is still an unforgettable movie for global audiences, and it is also a topic that makes people constantly talk about.
The Marvel Studios movie series is always filled with hilarious, funny atmosphere with a lot of epic action scenes with beautiful effects. However, the final twist in Avengers: Infinity War has changed everything. The first time the audience witnessed the superheroes they loved failed miserably, and it was also the first time Marvel directly “killed” a series of important characters to the surprise of the fans.
This traumatic moment followed them for a year of waiting, and continues to haunt in many scenes of Avengers: Endgame. The biggest blockbuster of Marvel still has many funny dialogue, there are still many battle scenes. But covering the whole movie is a very heavy, uncomfortable atmosphere that surviving superheroes suffer. And the same atmosphere has repeatedly caused the audience to shed tears during the 3 hours of the biggest blockbuster action, science fiction in 2019.
In celebration of Endgame’s 1-year anniversary, let’s take a look at the emotional moments that show this movie is not simply an ordinary entertainment action.
Clint Barton’s dazed, desperate look when he realized his whole family had suddenly disappeared.
From the very first seconds, Avengers: Endgame has rubbed salt into the wound of a fan who is still bleeding after Thanos’ snap a year ago. Hawkeye, who went missing in Infinity War, suddenly returned on the big screen, but in a way that wasn’t very nice.
The opening of this video is a quite peaceful scene, when Hawkeye can spend more time with his family. However, with just one camera pan, his wife and two children suddenly disappeared, leaving no trace. What’s worse, Hawkeye is still unaware of the existence of Thanos, and the actions he has taken with the 6 Infinity Stones. This made him more frustrated, confused and helpless when he did not know what happened, nor did he know how to save his loved ones.
Tony Stark completely collapsed when returning from space.
Iron Man is probably one of the people who Thanos hurt most deeply physically and mentally. He was stabbed in a fatal blow when he dueled with the crazy titan and was only saved when Doctor Strange decided to sacrifice Time Stone students. However, he later witnessed a series of flying teammates after the infinity snap, including the young Peter Parker that he extremely loved.
When Captain Marvel rescued him and brought him back to Earth, the first sentence that Tony told Captain America was: “I can’t stop him. I lost him “. The death of Spider-Man and the defeat of Thanos has always been haunting in his mind during the time when he was floating in space, and also the pain of millions of fans because the “spider” just returned to Marvel was not so long ago suddenly had to leave like that. Later scenes showed Tony having completely collapsed, to the point of becoming tired of revenge or doing anything as Iron Man anymore.
Black Widow sacrifices in exchange for the Soul Stone.
Avengers: Infinity War is the first time Marvel Studios has actually tapped the Soul Stone, and it also revealed how it can be collected: one life for one. So when Black Widow and Hawkeye came to Vomir, the audience did not want to but had to accept that one of the first two members of the Avengers would have to die here. Even more bitter, they were close comrades before the establishment of the Avengers, who were so close brothers born and died together.
This sadness continued when Hawkeye returned alone to the present. Although he didn’t say a word, the others understood that they had just lost an important member of the team. Before going back to the past, Black Widow had the message that: “See you in a little while”. However, ironically, it was the last time she was with the Avengers, and the trip to Vomir was a one-way ticket, forever unable to return.
Thor met his mother the same day Asgard was attacked.
Besides Iron Man, Thor also collapsed completely after his defeat to Thanos. He constantly blamed himself for losing narrowly by victory, and from there began a life of indulgent, carelessness. Without his parents, younger brother Loki has also been killed, Thor becomes a desperate bomb that can explode at any time, making viewers extremely sorry, although his appearance in Endgame is quite funny.
When tasked with returning to Asgard 2013 to get the Reality Stone, Thor continued to show his weakness when he knew that this was the day Frigga, his mother, would have to leave. He almost cried when he admitted to his mother who was returning from the future, and no longer had any confidence to face the same pain he had experienced 10 years earlier. The scene of the mother and daughter talking to each other, though not really as heavy as the details above, but it is enough to make the audience, especially long-time MCU fans, have to recover emotionally.
Tony Stark met his biological father again.
Throughout many MCU films, Tony Stark has never been interested in his relationship with his father – Howard Stark. However, things changed when he and Steve Rogers returned to S.H.I.E.L.D headquarters in 1970 to retrieve the Space Stone and collect more Pym particles to return to the present.
After meeting his biological father, Tony was quite shocked. The audience rarely saw this multi-talented billionaire become so confused and confused. 2 people continue to talk on many different topics, including parenting. This is when Tony seems to have let go of all his anger and burden to accept Howard’s feelings for him (even though Howard doesn’t know who Tony is, even watching him right now) like a weird guy).
Steve Rogers and his lover are close to their eyes and on the horizon.
While Tony Stark was confused when meeting his biological father, Steve Rogers also fell into the same emotional situation when he met his hundred-year-old lover – Peggy Carter. However, he did not have the opportunity to meet her directly, but could only secretly observe from afar through the separating window.
Steve has never forgotten Peggy since Captain America: The First Avengers. However, this meeting is not really complete, when he still has a lot of work to solve in reality. However, this is probably also the time Cap realized what he would have to do when the battle with Thanos ended (if the Avengers won), leading to his end without returning at the end of the movie as in the version. release.
Bucky Barnes says goodbye to Steve Rogers.
As a close friend from a young age, Bucky knows Steve will never return when time travel to return 6 Infinity Stones. The problem is not with technology, but he knows Steve will actively choose to stay in the past with the person he loves. That’s why the scene of the farewell scene between the two was somewhat regretful but very relieved, while Falcon and Hulk standing next to it did not understand what was happening.
Tony Stark died after performing a snap of his hand.
This is probably the most frustrating and painful moment for all the characters in the film as well as millions of viewers watching on the big screen. Just a few seconds ago, everyone was happy when Iron Man deceived Thanos and reclaimed 6 Infinity Stones in an instant. The victory is definitely in the hands of the Avengers. However, the price to pay is too expensive, and not everyone can accept this sudden end.
The reaction of War Machine, Spider-Man and Pepper Potts – Tony Stark’s three best friends spoke out all the emotions of the fans: Hypnosis, pain, helplessness but also somewhat relieved when he finally Iron was able to rest, no need to worry about the safety of the Earth and the universe. Shortly thereafter, all superheroes who fought with Thanos immediately bowed to express their gratitude and regret for the departure of the person who gave birth to the MCU.
If the “damage” is not enough, Marvel continues to broadcast the video that Tony shot to send to his daughter Morgan Stark before traveling time to earn Infinity Stones, with the conclusion that everyone is not I could not stop crying: “I love you 3000”.
