Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige showed his three-hour film for the first time as he concluded his Infinity saga. “You need an ending for a great story. You also need an ending for a new beginning. You can’t expect anything to be bigger than what we’ve been up to in the last year, but you can expect it to be different and unique and build up again to something equally, I hope, surprising,” Feige said.
First Screening of Endgame
Endgame boasted the most star-packed movie premiere carpet since last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Tons of former and current Marvel actors were in hand with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johansson just the tip of the iceberg as far as recognizable faces at the Los Angeles Convention Center. They received a standing ovation alongside directors Joe and Anthony Russo and the rest of the cast.

The Screening held possessed moment of silence as a matter of respect to the end of the saga. The only sound heard was sniffling from the audience. Audible gasps laugh and cheers also erupted during the movie. Although the movie had three-hour run time, it saw nearly no one leave for a bathroom break for fear of missing out a big moment.

“I’m excited that I’m finally going to get to see the movie,” said Paul Rudd. Rudd said he had been traveling the world to promote the film and “trying to talk about it the best we can and to do all of that without having seen the film is a strange experience. So now, to finally see the movie is great.”
“It’s been an amazing ride and so moving, I love all of you guys so much. It’s been the trip of a lifetime, and what you did up there tonight was so beautiful. My brother and sister Avengers, I love you so much,” gushed Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk.
