They flocked in groups to the theatre, grabbed their 3D glasses, crunched on some popcorn and wiped their tears… Yes! Because it was the end; Avengers: Endgame has become the highest grossing film of all time after Titanic. Like they say, ‘Endgame sunk the Titanic!’

Goa went nuts over Avengers: Endgame, folks bought tickets for the 1:45 am and 7 am shows



It’s been a decade since Marvel movies

began entertaining us. Finally an end to the saga ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has broken numerous box office records and has grossed over $2.2 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2019, the highest-grossing superhero film of all time, as well as the second-highest-grossing film of all time.

People have grown up watching the Marvel movies and have lived their last dream recently.

While everyone thought it was the ‘end-end’, it was revealed that there still are sequels to the other Marvel films. ‘The End’ was just for Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr who have amused audience with their Iron Man and Captain America roles for years now and have finally decided to move on and retire; which indeed explains the end scene that left everyone in tears where Tony Stark sacrifices himself and Steve Rogers ages in grey.

The craze has not only been worldwide, but our little Goa turned a hotspot when tickets were sold at night till 1:45 am and opening shows at 7 am in the morning. No one has seen Goa go nuts like this! It wasn’t just fans… it was fans’ friends, friends of friends, friends of friends who did not watch previous marvel movies, old, young… and the list goes on.

“There were six of us, we went for the 2:30 pm show on the day it released, we booked well in advance, and the theatre was still packed! The last hour was definitely my favourite scene. It was basically the last fight scene where all the heroes came together. They also addressed most of the fans questions and plot holes. It was really sad but an honorable ending,” expresses

Ruth Leene

from Shiroda.

Frezel De Sa

, who is not a Marvel fan and watched ‘Endgame’ because of her friends, shares, “I didn’t understand the first 15 minutes of the movie since I didn’t watch the previous movies. Later the movie was really good with all the action and fight scenes, plot and time travel.”

There were some who watched it the second and third time, “I had mixed feelings after watching the Endgame. I went twice in a day at 11:45 am and at 4:15 pm and the emotions were gushing down my throat,” says

Joshua Fernandes

from Merces. Similarly,

Assis Shaikh

from Panjim says, “I went for an early morning show at 7 am which was crowded even at that hour. I’ve watched the movie 12 times I need to watch it more as I feel like I am missing something. I feel like I need to watch it for the Easter eggs references.”

And then there were that lot - the DC fans cheating to watch a Marvel movie, “I am more of DC fan rather than Marvel. Although, I did love the storyline,” says

Carisio Azavedo

from Santa Cruz.

Surprisingly, there were girls who turned brave at the late hour and went for shows at night. “The theatre was 50% full. I went for a 9.30pm show and reached home by 1 am. We were a bit scared since it was late but I enjoyed anyway,” says

Shikha Lagali

from Margao.

The movie has been running for two weeks now and is still packed with families and friends coming in groups of 6 to 20. Most of the viewers admitted that their most loved scene was Captain America being worthy of holding the Mjolnir (hammer of Thor). People were heard wowing and applauding during the scene. There are still sequels to the other Marvel movies presumably ‘Black Panther 2’, ‘Spider-Man Far from Home’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ with Thor, and probably a sequel for ‘Black Widow’ that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
