Avengers: Endgame

Endgame is here soon. But Benedict´s lips are sealed as to its contents. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Avengers: Endgame

I watched it today. Anyone up for a discussion? (Spoiler: I liked it very much). https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Avengers: Endgame

Hi Susi
I liked it as well but not as much as Infinity War. ;) I liked Thanos as a charakter very much.

I'm not really a Marvel fan and watched only half of all the Marvel films that are out there. But of course I watched Doctor Strange.

SPOILERS from now on.

Of course Dr Strange is one of my favs and I all my attention is on him whenever he appears.
How do you interpret his gesture with the one finger in the last battle? I read there are different interpretations out there. On the one hand I thought he meant with this gesture: THIS scenario is the ONE in which we are winning. On the other hand he made a face some minutes before or afterwards (I can't remember) where he looked totally surprised and a little scared just like he realized: Shit, something in this scenario went wrong.

What do you think?

Re: Avengers: Endgame

Yes, you are right. I had the same thought: so this is the one good outcome he had seen. Could it be that the fact of Tony's death did sadden him? The price they had to pay for winning against Thanos?

Re: Avengers: Endgame

Could be but I will have to rewatch it sometime.
Very heartbreaking that Strange asked Thanos to spare Tony's life in Infinity War while he knew he would have to die in the one scenario where they win.
It is a little cold blooded but I think this fits very well to his former charakter as a surgeon. He is the only one to make "unemotional" choices about life and death.

For me it was a message to Tony saying "There is only ONE scenario where we win - so if necessary you'll have to take the gauntlet even though it will kill you."

But I only watched the film once and in 3D and with subtitles, so I've probably missed a lot. On the other hand, I didn't really enjoy it so I won't watch again (pretty much the only enjoyable moment that sticks in my memory is Steve saying "that's really America's ass" to his earlier self - IMHO he was not talking about his glutes  https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
)

What destroyed my enjoyment (apart of course Tony dying) is the fact that an Earth with 4 billion inhabitants wouldn't be particularly empty (so the pictures of New York deserted didn't make any sense to me), and that bringing 4 billion people back after 5 years, when the survivors have moved on (into the jobs and the houses) would result in so many problems that I really can't consider it a happy end.

I'm mostly just happy that this saga is now over and I can take a step back and patiently wait for Doctor Strange 2.
