With an all-star cast and ties to every other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie from the so-called “Infinity Saga,” Avengers: Endgame is arguably the franchise’s most ambitious project ever. And cinemas are still echoing with fans’ triumphant cheers as their favorite heroes get their share of iconic big-screen moments. But that being said, the unidentified character in the film’s tear-jerking close has left many movie-goers baffled.
So if you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet, be warned: spoilers are ahead. For those of you who have already watched the movie, though, read on. And with that formality aside, grab your tissues too – because we’re going to revisit the flick’s most emotional sequences.
We knew, of course, that there’d be consequences when the heroes failed to defeat the supervillain Thanos (played by Josh Brolin) at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. After all, actors’ contracts were coming to an end, character arcs were closing and the baddie – also known as The Mad Titan – was still at large. So Endgame sees the superhero team regroup one last time to finally put a stop to Thanos. But this heroic act results in the losses of some of the franchise’s key characters.
