Disney released a tiny movie some of you may have heard about over the weekend. It’s called Avengers: Endgame. After 11 years and 21 films, it has come down to this one movie that simply smashed box office records. Having seen it four times already, I can tell you that it is one of the best movie-going experiences I have had in a very long time. Watching the press screening is one thing, but watching it with the general public is something else.
And it shows, as Avengers: Endgame was not only the number one film this weekend, taking in $350 million domestically, but also smashed a few other records in the process such as the biggest opening day and weekend, which were previously held by films like The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity War. But now the question is, can it pass Avatar? More on this report below.

It wouldn’t be the least bit cliche to say that all good things must come to an end. For Marvel Studios, all roads that have been paved by the last 21 movies in the last 11 years have led up to Avengers: Endgame. What directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have done is truly indescribable. It’s a true gift to the fans who have been a part of this journey since 2008. To put it simply, it is the epic conclusion to an 11-year story arc.
Filled with a wide range of emotions from joy, sorrow, laughter, and excitement, Avengers: Endgame will surely go down as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. Check out my full review below.
“Heroes, it’s an old-fashioned notion.” That’s a quote from Nick Fury said in The Avengers, when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were at their lowest. Defeated, they eventually rallied together to defeat a common enemy when the people of Earth needed it. Little did these heroes know, the Earth and the entire universe would need them again. Needless to say, all roads lead to Avengers: Endgame.
The latest special look video takes a look back at 21 films, 11 years, and 11 franchises that make up the grand mosaic that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus, the Russo brothers have a very special message to those who are tempted to spoil one of the biggest superhero films in history. Check out the latest special look video below.
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, also known as the Russo brothers, have been a part for the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2014, when they directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Their unique take on the superhero genre with an added political thriller vibe was so much of a success that they were brought in to oversee Captain America: Civil War, a smaller scale ensemble that brought in other heroes together to fight amongst themselves. They eventually went on to direct the final two Avengers films, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the latter of which hits theaters later this month.
Geeks of Doom was invited to participate in the global press conference for Avengers: Endgame, where the Russo brothers talked about the upcoming and possibly final Avengers film, their approach to making films, and more. Check out what they had to say below.
Marvel Studios has been keeping some of the bigger plot details of Avengers: Endgame a secret for the better part of the past year. It’s a formula that has worked out for them as no one will expect to see some of the major surprises. Though many have their suspicions on what will happen in the sequel, no one but those close to the film and its production knows what will happen.
During the global press conference for Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Ronin), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Danai Gurira (Okoye), and Don Cheadle (War Machine) all opened up about what it was like play these iconic characters and moving on after being a part of a 10-year narrative. Others shared their thoughts on starting this new journey. Check out what they had to say below.
