First released in China on Apr. 24, Avengers: Endgame has been keeping the attention of Marvel fans since the end of its prequel movie, Avengers: Infinity War. Rotten Tomatoes gives the movie a staggering 95%, making it a Certified Fresh movie. Set in the aftermath of Infinity War where (spoiler) half of the everyone in the universe dies, the Avengers set out to find the Infinity Stones to bring everyone back and defeat Thanos once and for all.
“If “Infinity War” was billed as a must-see event for all moviegoers, whether or not they’d attended a single Marvel movie prior, then “Endgame” is the ultimate fan-service follow-up,” writes Peter Debruge of Variety magazine.
The movie has sparked a lot of memes in an effort to post about Endgame without giving away any spoilers. The “Spoiler Without Context” meme has thundered across Twitter and Instagram. The most popular pictures to attach to the meme are a rat, Spiderman pointing at Spiderman, a man with long hair and a beer belly, American flag boxers and the infamous taco. Have fun trying to figure out what that’s about.
The other meme that has gained popularity after Endgame is the “love you 3000” meme (insert crying emoji here). If you have seen the movie, you’ll know why it’s so sad.
Avengers: Endgame has broken records in the wake of its release, topping other Marvel movies. With an opening $1.2 Billion, the number is only growing as people continue to flock to see it in theaters. However, this is probably the last Avengers movie with its original members. So goodbye, beloved team, and remember: that’s America’s a**.
