9 Unpopular Opinions About Avengers: Endgame, According To Reddit
With the season finale of moon knight just came out and Ms. Marvel set to premiere on June 8, MCU fans have a lot to look forward to. The third anniversary of Avengers: Endgame also passed recently, giving fans a lot to think about.
Although End of Game received overwhelmingly positive reviews and garnered praise from critics and fans alike, people certainly still have unpopular opinions about the film, and they aren’t afraid to share them.
It’s not as good as people say
Avengers: Endgame was a hit with Marvel fans, earning an Audience Score of 90% and a Critics Score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is considerably high even for a Marvel movie. Despite this, some Redditors claim that End of Gamethe culmination of more than a decade of movies, is not as good as it sounds.
A Editor clarified that they did not hate him. “He definitely had his moments,” they wrote, “But the rest of the time it was just ‘cheese whiz’ jokes and enforced depression. It wasn’t BAD, but it wasn’t as good as the previous movie, and definitely wasn’t on my favorites list.” Many fans don’t think this is an accurate summary of the movie.
humor doesn’t work
The MCU’s use of humor to ease tension has improved and evolved over time. guardians of the galaxy was the first really funny MCU movie, and since then they’ve slowly gotten funnier. From Scott Lang losing his taco to Tony and Nebula playing foosball, End of Game offers an appropriate dose of fun humor. That being said, some fans disagree and think the jokes in this movie don’t sit well.
Reddit user bennyandthegentz argues, “How can anyone [legitimately] laugh at that?! Fifteen days, dabbing, fat Thor, calling Back to the future bulls–t (even though that’s twice as much as any Marvel movie) and more. Fat Thor legitimately felt like something out of a bad Adam Sandler movie or a Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer parody the dabbing and fortnight references are things people rip on Illumination and the Sony animation to do, but Marvel gets a free pass? the user certainly seems mad at these jokes and is right about some of them, but most viewers enjoyed the humor.
Time travel makes no sense
Time travel is always a tricky subject to talk about and a difficult trope to use effectively. That being said, most fans seem to think that End of Game did it pretty well. Even though most Marvel fans enjoy the time travel aspect of End of Gamesome Redditors strongly disagree.
“The time heist thing was so convoluted and they ended up doing a bunch of universe-altering gaffes that make the whole ‘turning the stones’ thing seem completely pointless and stupid,” said the Reddit user. KutestKoala0407 wrote: “Either time travel works like ‘fuck you, I’ve got mine’ or events should have affected things. This movie sucked for me. Time travel rules were weak and made for a messy viewing experience.” Alas, many agree that the way they approach time travel makes more sense than in many other sci-fi films.
He disrespects the characters
End of Game was the culmination of over 10 years of Marvel movies, featuring a loaded roster of superheroes. It must have been a difficult task to use all of these characters effectively and give everyone proper screen time.
“Doctor Strange was lost. He was basically sent to the kiddie pool. Star-Lord was basically around getting his nuts kicked.” Reddit user Finito-1994 argues, “It’s like they don’t know how to deal with huge power differentials and average them out. Avengers 1 did it right.” Most fans think this movie manages to balance all those heroes, giving the most shine to those who needed it in a way that benefits the story.
It is not reviewable
When End of Game was first released, fans around the world gushed over it enthusiastically, going to see it in theaters multiple times. At just over three hours, it certainly pays to watch it more than once. Most Marvel movies are very reusable, and End of Game is no exception, but some Redditors disagree.
Reddit user OniiChan_ argues, “If you see it and accept it as a goodbye love letter to the fans, I think it’s more enjoyable. I still won’t see it again.” If you ask most big MCU fans, they’ll tell you they love watching this over and over again, even though they don’t think it’s an all-time great movie.
The end of Captain America is terrible
This opinion is certainly not as unpopular as the others, but it still deserves a place. At the end of End of Game, Steve Rogers chooses to stay in the past with Peggy Carter. Many fans love this ending, saying it’s a perfect way to end Steve’s story: he’s at peace and happy, reunited with the love of his life. While some Marvel fans relish this ending, a large number absolutely despise it.
“I hated it and it was a really bad idea. The more you think about it, the worse it gets,” the Reddit user said. matty_nice says, “Is Steve letting Alternate Bucky stay with Hydra? Thing to do to your best friend. Is Steve telling Alternate Peggy the whole truth? Thing to hide if you don’t.” Plus, there’s the obvious addition that this sounds like the sort of thing the TVA would arrest Steve for.
Tony Stark’s death isn’t sad
End of Game certainly delivers some of the saddest MCU deaths to date. First, it takes Natasha Romanoff, in a heartbreaking scene where she sacrifices herself for the Soul Stone. At the end of the film, Iron Man completes his arc and makes a similar gesture of self-sacrifice as he snaps with the Infinity Gauntlet, bringing everyone injured back to life and mortally wounding himself. Audiences were devastated to witness the death of the very first MCU superhero, signaling the end of an era.
This Editor wrote: “His death is no exaggeration. I didn’t cry or feel remorse for him but his death made me feel like the movie was over. He was a good character and I will miss him, but I I’ll never understand what made people cry. A movie where a main character sacrifices himself even though he was a bit arrogant at first, now it’s a character development I’ve been expecting in a Marvel movie. of Tony’s status in the franchise, most fans were crushed.
Captain Marvel is useless
The post-credits scene of Infinity War teased Captain Marvel‘s first appearance, and Captain Marvel came out just before End of Game. Fans were curious to see what kind of role Captain Marvel would play End of Game, fearing that she will overshadow the original Avengers with her intense powers. Most fans were happy with her role in the film, but some people were bothered by her lack of presence, saying she did too little.
Reddit user SquilliamFantasySon95 wrote: “Her appearance in the movie bothered me because they didn’t give her any meaningful dialogue or roles! She’s supposed to be one of the most powerful superheroes in the universe and they treated her like an afterthought.” It’s a tough balancing act because you can’t let her overshadow the original team that was crucial to the story, but you also have to make sure she comes across as the savior Nick Fury requested.
Professor Hulk is not nice
It reveals itself in End of Game that Bruce Banner and the Hulk achieved unity in the five years that begin, meeting halfway in between as Professor Hulk. It’s shocking at first, but Professor Hulk comes in handy, helping with time travel and snapping his fingers to bring everyone back. People’s reaction to Professor Hulk is generally overwhelmingly positive, but some fans think he’s not nice.
Reddit user Tandril91, “But what really pisses me off is that all of his character development happens OFF-SCREEN…And something that I just can’t stand is that he literally doesn’t do anything onscreen during the final battle The Incredible Go**amn Hulk, the embodiment of overwhelming strength and rage, does nothing memorable in the titanic final battle to decide the fate of the MCU. What kind of avengers fight is it when Hulk is upstaged by literally everyone else?” Hulk’s role in the battle has come under understandable criticism, though it’s hard to blame off-screen development since Marvel Studios doesn’t have the rights to a solo Hulk movie.
