With an all-star cast and ties to every other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie from the “Infinity Saga,” Avengers: Endgame is arguably the franchise’s most ambitious project ever. Cinemas are echoing with fans’ triumphant cheers as their favorite heroes get their big-screen moments. But the unidentified character in the film’s tear-jerking close has left cinema-goers baffled.
If you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet, then be warned: spoilers are ahead. For those of you who have watched it, or just thrive on knowing plot points in advance, then read on. And with that formality aside grab your tissues, because we’re going to revisit the movie’s most emotional moments.
