Did Avengers: Infinity War’s Ending Live Up To All The Hype?


Did We Get Robbed?

It’s difficult to say we were robbed. Avengers: Infinity War played out more like an event than it did a standalone movie. If you went into it not knowing anything about the MCU, you would’ve been lost and confused. It was certainly more episodic than the other movies we’ve seen.

Look, it was a larger-than-life spectacle that delivered some of the most fascinating scenes we’ve ever witnessed and brought together an entire universe of characters. On that level, it did something entirely unique and unheard of, so it should be applauded for doing so.

The conclusion (or let’s say the end of part one) of the film though did leave the impression that more could’ve happened – or have had lasting consequences. Or maybe it’s similar to the case of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, where our expectations and wild fan theories got the best of us. The resentment that film gets (“not muh Star Wars“) is mostly a result of the story going against the grain.

Perhaps this is the same of Avengers: Infinity War, too. Should we really have expected the MCU to take such massive gambles in the first place? If we’ve learned anything here, it’s that we need to temper our expectations for Avengers 4. It’ll be big, yes, but it might not be as shocking as you’d expect it to be.

Tell us, do you think the ending of Avengers: Infinity War was a cop-out? Sound off in the comments section below.
