Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It’s the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 23, 2019
Tip #1 - Go in with multiple handkerchiefs
#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic - a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) April 23, 2019
Tip #2 - Watch all 21 of them. You still have time
Do not go in expecting Infinity War part two. The two films are so different, yet compliment each other in all the best ways. In terms of which MCU movie to watch beforehand... honestly, all of them. What an experience - what an accomplishment#AvengersEndgame— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) April 23, 2019
Tip #3 - Don't go in expecting Thanos
Just saw #AvengersEndgame and don’t want to spoil anything but trust that this movie delivers everything you’re hoping for - from a surprisingly sweet Ant-Man/Nebula team-up to a positively visceral Bucky/Cap fisting scene. They really nailed it - this saga ends on a high note— Mekler @ the Movies! (@benmekler) April 23, 2019
Tip #4 - Be ready for ANY and EVERY possibility
90% of the #AvengersEndgame footage that’s been officially released is from first the 15 minutes: Other than the actual surprises, the biggest surprise to me was how funny it is

#AvengersEndgame is filled with so much comic book awesomeness that you may not be ready! Great blend of action, emotion and humor while keeping the stakes high throughout. Truly an achievement in blockbuster filmmaking.— Dennis Tzeng (@ThinkHero) April 23, 2019
Tip #7 - Comicbook fans. We also get a payoff. Maybe explaining to your friends and partners over 10 years wasn't a waste after all.
You guys. This is it! Avengers: Endgame is entertainment from beginning to end. There were tears, laughter, cheering. A lot of cheering. I’m ready to watch it again. The payoff is so plan your bathroom breaks accordingly. #avengersendgame— Wendy Lee Szany (@WendyLeeSzany) April 23, 2019

#AvengersEndgame just ended. No spoiler, but some first thoughts.— Anthony Breznican (@Breznican) April 23, 2019
Epic is the word. Epic multiplied by a decade of emotion, excitement and investment. This is the payoff.
It left me with a full heart, but one I had has some scars on it. Those are the strongest kind, after all. pic.twitter.com/Ay2rXISBOB
