    Thor's story arc isn't a farce, not by a longshot. He's probably got the most tragic Shakesperean arc of all the Avengers. He's lost his mother, father, brother, home and his sense of purpose. Not to mention he feels personally responsible for half the universe dying. You need the superficially farcical moments so it's not oppressively dark, but it's clear that in spite of the jokes Thor is utterly lost until his conversation with his mother.

    Thor cut off Thanos' arm and head after Thanos was half dead from destroying the stones. The Thanos Carol fought was full power.

    And yet he still couldn't make a dent in her without using the power stone to infinity punch her.

    And Thor cut through his chest when he was at full power. And that was after Stormbreaker had to cut through a six-gem infinity blast. So no, he's not indestructible.

    She had her chance. She should have gone for the head.
    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Saw the movie yesterday and thought it was excellent. I haven’t tried to make much sense of the time travel part but I’m also ok with Superman reversing the world or whatever. I just can’t go that deep with these things. My head hurts even trying. Lol!! The story was good, great action, and a nice conclusion. Ready for a nice break. I’ve seen comic book movies this year. That was awesome the year “Dark Knight”, “Hulk”, & “Iron Man “ cane out but now it feels like sugar overload. My eyes need a break from all the explosions. I’d give “Endgame” a 9 out of 10 though. No real complaints although I wasn’t crazy about Thor.

    I haven’t bought a comic in nearly 20 yrs so I’ve missed where Cap was replaced by Falcon. I’m not crazy about seeing every character eventually replaced in the films. I get that film is much different than a never ending comic book so I understand why many would prefer that to an eventual reboot. New characters will test my interest level.

    He's not allowed to go anywhere. He's been grounded and sent to his room without dinner.

    Captain Britain and the Black Knight was rumored last year with Guy Ritchie BEGGING to direct it.

    There was even a rumor that if Aladdin does well, they would give him any MCU project he wanted.

    And Coogler has shown no compunction when saying he wants Namor for Black Panther 2. He wants a King vs. King story.

    One of my favorites references from the movie was the possible Namor reference,as a comic book reader i would say that this is the first reference of Namor in the MCU.

    Was the Iron Spider-Man costume destroyed at the end of the movie?

    I really liked that suit.

    The first time I watched Endgame, I was too caught up in wondering who was going to die to fully appreciate the Volmir scene. On a second viewing...oh man, I was an emotional wreck. Johanson and Renner sold that moment beautifully. It's just heart wrenching.

    I think Hulk's attempt to bring Natasha back with the gauntlet certainly leaves some options open. Her death could be final, or she could return but maybe more involved in the spy side of things as opposed to the superhero community. If Hulk did bring her back, she might see that as an opportunity to operate as a ghost.

    No, Peter still has the Iron Spider suit.
