Avengers: Endgame delivered on the impossible. It wrapped up several decades long arcs with a satisfying conclusion, gave fans some massively anticipated moments and shattered box office records.
Pleasing such a massive fanbase with your already hugely-hyped finale is no easy feat - just ask Game Of Thrones.
However, as is always the case, you can’t please everyone all of the time (even when you gross $2 billion). From casting, actor gossip, marketing and fan reaction, the movie has generated a surprising amount of controversy... and that’s before you even look at the events of the movie themselves.
General complaints (Thanos being less developed this time around, too much/little screen time for favoured characters) don’t come into this; most entries here are much, much stranger.
Endgame was a bit of a once in a lifetime event, so plenty of pundits were clamouring to give their hot takes while the media frenzy was at its peak. Anyone who was anyone had something to say about Endgame, and there’s been plenty of arguments in the fallout.
Were they all worthwhile takes? Well, you be the judge of that.
