Avengers: Endgame – Reel Dialogue Survival Pack

Our Reel Dialogue team has been asked for information on Avengers: Endgame and we have put together a survival pack. In our investigation with friends, family and people on the street, we realised there are still some people who have not seen most of the films. Yet, they are wanting to go see this blockbuster. We thought to put together a concise bit of information that will help anyone in this situation.

  • Information you will need to prepare for this film
  • Essential films to watch, if you have not already seen all the MCU films
  • Our top 5 favourites in the MCU (Sneaky seven, actually)
  • Who is left to turn things around from Avengers: Infinity War

Interesting facts

  • Avengers: Endgame is set to hit theatres on April 26, 2019.
  • Longest run time: The official runtime is three hours and two minutes, making it the longest Marvel movie yet.
  • 22 current films, 11 years… here we are… Avengers:Endgame
  • Stan Lee’s final cameo: He has had 21 cameos in MCU
  • Biggest film financially: Worldwide – Avengers: Infinity War ; Biggest US – Black Panther 
  • This franchise has made close to $15 billion (US) dollars worldwide 
  • Thanos acquired all the Stones — Space (blue), Power (purple), Reality (red), Soul (orange), Mind (yellow), and Time (green) — and then used them to wipe out half of all life in the universe with a snap of his fingers. That act is often referred to as “The Snap.” Then is relaxing on a planet… not doing anything? 
  • Total hours of MCU films: 44 hours and 48 minutes
  • Who has the most screen time of any character? Iron man … 4 hours 20 minutes and he said Jarvis’ name 49 times

Any theories… not really, just keep an eye on Antman… We think he is at the core of this thing 

As Endgame begins, the surviving heroes on Earth are:

  • Captain America (Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans)
  • Thor (umm…Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth)
  • Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson)
  • War Machine (James Rhodes, played by Don Cheadle)
  • The Hulk (Bruce Banner, played by Mark Ruffalo)
  • Rocket (Rocket Raccoon, although he hates being called that, voiced by Bradley Cooper)
  • Okoye (played by Danai Gurira)
  • Meanwhile, two more characters are alive out in deep space: Iron Man (Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula (played by Karen Gillan). 

Wildcards: Captain Marvel, Valkyrie, Hawkeye (Ronin) and Ant-man
