After 11 years and 22 movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe culminated in the sprawling, powerful, three-hour epic Avengers: Endgame. Fans had plenty of time to debate their Infinity War theories and predict how Phase 4 of the MCU might begin. Anyone worried about SPOILERS should turn back now because this list is going to go into what happened to Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
In the end, how the Avengers finally beat Thanos is as exciting as it is heartbreaking. Not one but two heroes wear the Infinity Gauntlet in a "whatever it takes" effort to crush the Mad Titan and protect the universe from his megalomania. Between large-scale fights, time travel hijinks, and a pleasantly surprising amount of humor, it is easy to miss the dozens of little Avengers: Endgame Easter eggs and references crammed throughout the movie. There's some great stuff there, though, and those little moments really cement Endgame as the climax of a story more than a decade in the making.
Strap on your magical glove and skintight time travel suit and let's get to it. And when you're done, be sure to check out all of Endgame's plot holes.
