I think we had to presume that Ant Man was going to be in play in this movie after the way Ant-Man and The Wasp ended.

Clearly Luis was like "Scott told me he was gonna do this whole science experiment on this roof over in Brooklyn, and we were gonna go out to this bar at 7pm after he was done to celebrate the advent of immortality due to super science and stuff, but then he didn't show up and everybody started turning into ashes and it was all crazy and cars were crashing, and I was thinking 'Oh no Scott might have turned to ash too' so I go over to that rooftop where he said the van would be parked, and I saw these three piles of ash and everyone was gone, and I was thinking 'geez where's Scott' but then I looked down at these machines and there was this red button at the end of this cord that was connected to the machines, and I was like 'should I push the button?' cuz who knows with super-science machines if they explode or whatever, so then I pushed the button and Scott appeared and he was like 'Woah dude, I was in there for like four hours!' and I was like 'Yo man, everyone turned to dust and it was all crazy and cars were crashing and you never showed up at the bar so I came looking for you and I pushed this button.'"

That was hilarious.  I can't get enough Luis in those movies.

The tag at the end of the trailer was funny, and probably one of the few light hearted moments of the entire thing.  It certainly seems grim all the way around.  But that exchange between Thor and Captain Marvel?  Pretty cool.  And Brie Larson's smirk said a lot.

I like the tease for a possible Kate Bishop with Hawkeye.  Also read online that Marvel is casting for baby twins.  Old time Marvel readers should see the set up here. 

Anyone know when tickets go on sale for Endgame?

My short spoiler free review of Endgame - it was perfect.

Will discuss more once others have seen it.

Kind of related and fun.

Go to google search.  Type “Thanos” in search bar.  Click on the gauntlet and watch what happens.

My thoughts...great movie.  I went to the 9AM showing today.  If you are disappointed, then there is something wrong with you.

"Endgame" reaction (Minus spoilers)

I worked the third shift Thursday night and went straight into "Endgame" at 8:30 AM (with my 9-year old son on his spring break, who has been getting into the MCU for the last year or so.) That said, I wasn't tempted to rest my eyes once, and that is saying something. Also, it's the first time in my life I've bought the big bucket of popcorn (*with free refill) and took advantage of the refill during the movie. I don't advise substituting a bucket and a half of popcorn for a balanced breakfast.

Going in I was nostalgic for the first Avengers movie, which took me by surprise for being as funny as it was, and knowing this one couldn't match that. It didn't, but just barely. Some good jokes and funny situations that affect the story and how it unfolds, but more importantly the jokes are played right. The laughs broke the tension and pathos so well on so many occasions. In the epilogue, a joke call-back choked me up with real feelings!

I was impressed with how well-written this entry is. Every character is spot-on, and especially the core Avenger group get to bring their individual stories to satisfying endpoints. Even the guys who get played for laughs had moments of real heart and hurt that was dealt with realistically. And there were real plot surprises to be had here, starting in the first act.

I have a couple quibbles with the main plot device and how it worked out, but the movie itself acknowledged that would be impossible to avoid "in those kinds of movies" so it wasn't a deal-breaker the way TLJ's "Space Chase" plot device was for me.

It was the most satisfying "finale" movie I've seen since "Return of the King," and it gets it's cake and eats it too, by also setting up future stuff that I find myself surprisingly interested in following. "Guardians 3" wins the prize for the best set-up, if they actually follow through I will be very pleased.

Thumbs up!
