(No spoilers) . . .
. . . I cried. Wiping tears away for minutes. Wifey didn’t shed a tear, and yes she’s also quite into MCU and she’s usually bawling and I get lump in throat at most. Titanic, move over!
@hammi99 For my money, I think “I cried” is a spoiler. Not a major one, but a spoiler nonetheless.
Let me state on the front end as emphatically as possible I am not mad, nor do I think you did anything “wrong”. If I am so adamant about no spoilers (and I am), I shouldn’t be reading threads like this on the internet (and I didn’t until after I saw it Friday). But you don’t have to reveal a plot point to constitute a spoiler. In addition, when a so-called “non-spoilers” like yours are combined with other “non-spoilers”, they can indeed give away plot details.
For example, << SPOILER BELOW that some would claim is not a spoiler >>
I heard a woman on the radio early Friday morning “I cried so hard at the end of Avengers Endgame”. They said it just as I started my car, and I could not switch the station in time. That was it. I am pretty sure she didn’t think what she said constituted a spoiler, but it was a major spoiler for me, and the “at the end” was significant. From that alone, I was able to surmise “something happens” to at one or more characters, and when combined with other details in the film, it was easy for me to resolve “to whom”, that “something happens”. In short, I knew what was going to happen in the climatic scene before it happened. I would not have known that without the seemingly innocuous comment.
@mfladd I mean, as long as nobody gives away that Rosebud is Cap’s sled, we’re good. And really, we have a couple "Cap"s now, so as long as you don’t reveal if it belonged to America, Marvel, or Caveman then is it really a spoiler?
@ZeroCharisma there are apparently a couple good 5 - 15 minute ”recap to get you ready” videos out there. A coworker who had only seen maybe 8 of the 21 others watched a few and said he only had to ask about 3 questions to get fully caught up.
I have seen about 37 of the 21 (a few multiple times) but my son is at college another week and we are all waiting . So far everyone has been good on no spoilers. Thanks!
@Kawa yup, and that was an issue as well. I dont want to give too much away… lots of time spent on less important plot developments, and mininal time spent with the true heroes. They could have cut the movie time in half.
@therealjrn I think you mean Mster? Thanks for the giphy. I honestly wouldn’t know if Spidey was part of all that. Sacrilege, I know . I am aware of Thor, Iron Man and Antman, however. And I think there’s a Captain or 2…
We saw it by accident* yesterday. My first movie since last year.
It was okay. Some heartstrings were pulled.
It was pretty long, I thought I’d have more of a problem with my bionic hip than I did, sitting for that length of time.
Then we watched some reruns of Justified on Amazon Prime when we got home, then Game of Thrones (east coast feed of HBO, watched at six pm, yay!).
I was pretty deaded out last night.
*I asked for tickets to Captain Marvel. Brian never looked at the tickets after they were handed to him. We were just told which theater to go to and we did. Didn’t realize which movie it was until the title credits.
