Everyone is going crazy over the new movie that just got released, Avengers: Endgame. All of the die-hard Marvel fans filled up all of the seats in a nearby movie theater the day of its release. Ever since the movie has dropped, Endgame is all everyone can talk about, so that leaves the burning question: is Endgame overrated? Are people getting hyping it up too much?

For those who haven’t seen the movie, Endgame is about the remaining Avengers, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Bruce Banner all coming together to get their “vanquished” allies back together for one last showdown with Thanos. The movie was released in theaters April 24, and since the release people have been going crazy and can’t stop boasting about it. Marvel fans that haven’t seen it are even logging off of all social media in order to stay away from spoilers- which by the way are everywhere! “Avengers: Endgame”, is topping the charts fast, especially with the help of people talking about it and putting out on social media hyping it up and telling others to go see it. But all this hype has some people wondering if it’s getting hyped up a little too much, so much so that it might be a little overrated. Bekka Plitz, ‘19 gave her opinion, “I don’t think it was overrated because it was a great closing movie for the Avengers all together for the last time.” She continued, “The movie was amazingly heart wrenching to watch and it both broke my heart and made my love for the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) even bigger that it already was.”

Other people who saw it, believe that all the hype is a good thing, Alessia Tumminia ‘19 stated, “I don’t think the movie is overrated, and I honestly really loved Endgame. It is getting a lot of hype which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.” Hailey Shuttle ‘19 agreed, “I think Endgame is very hyped up because the characters are very reliable. They go through rough times and bad times and there’s an actual plot that’s not focused on love, just about family and being together for a common cause. And everyone loves action, and Captain America is hot!”

Whether you like Marvel movies or not, there is no way you have not heard of this movie. Putting a conclusion to why there is so much hype behind Endgame, it sounds like most Marvel fans think that this was the perfect way to end an ongoing series with characters Marvel fans know and love.
