The Avengers: Endgame World Premiere has been done and dusted and we finally have the reactions of the fans and the critics. This film goes beyond Avengers: Infinity War on so many levels. The first half of Infinity War was a bit clumsy and that is why the Rotten Tomatoes score of the film came out to be 85%. But people appreciated that anyway because the film was made on a larger scale and the Russos had managed to get a compelling story forward successfully. For those who feared for the same thing with Endgame can be happy as Marvel has gone past all of our expectations!

Avengers: Endgame has debuted with a Rotten Tomatoes score of a mammoth 98%. Now that’s a score many studios would only wish for their films to get. To begin with, Avengers: Endgame got 98% positive reviews out of 51, but with more reviews coming in, the probability of this score going down was always supposed to be high.
As of now, 106 reviews have been counted and the score stands at 96%. The number of reviews goes up to somewhere between 300-350, so we could expect this score to come down even further. But it would have been so great to see the score stand at 98% as that would have made it higher than Black Panther, and that would have also meant for this film to be the very best of the MCU in all terms and categories.
Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film Marvel has ever produced. It has the most number of actors attached and the biggest budget involved. Its reported budget was somewhere around $300-$400 Million and it has spent a mammoth $200 Million upon the marketing. So, even the expenditure on this film was the highest. We already know that it will turn out to be the highest grossing superhero movie domestically and worldwide, and to top that, it even has the potential to beat Avatar and hit the $3 Billion mark.
Along with everything else, it is also the longest MCU movie as it runs for 180 minutes and 58 seconds. So, having the highest Rotten Tomatoes score for a Superhero movie would have made things just so perfect! Well, Avengers: Endgame is already perfect and this is no set back of any kind. Anything above 90% is a goldmine for Marvel as this would ensure that the critics love this movie as much as the fans, and that will bring in the extra $400-$500 Million to beat Avatar!
No matter what happens. This surely is the greatest movie of the decade and no other film can do what it has done even before hitting the theatres. Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame will open on April 26, and it’ll presumably star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Paul Rudd, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Tessa Thompson, Evangeline Lilly, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Katherine Langford, Stellan Skarsgard, Ava Russo and Brie Larson.
#AvengersEndgame is every bit the masterpiece it deserves to be. It’s extraordinary. It is a conclusion worthy of the greatest cinematic saga of all time! Congratulations to everyone who had anything to do with this film, or the 21 films before it. I am emotionally spent. pic.twitter.com/2Yiu3ZIimC

Here’s the new synopsis of Avengers: Endgame:
“Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, and half the life in the universe instantly dissolved. Now a ragged group of surviving warriors, including Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk works to counteract the Mad Titan’s genocidal action.
Since our heroes couldn’t stop Thanos the first time, what makes them think they can win in a rematch? The answer may be in overwhelming power, thanks to Captain Marvel, or in the tiniest spaces between atoms accessible to Ant-Man. Avengers: Endgame will rewrite the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. When it’s all over, nothing will be the same.”
