Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing. Avengers: Endgame is out this week and we are going to take a look back at some of the events that led up to it.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has consisted of three phases so far with each one climaxing with an Avengers movie. Phase 2 also had Ant-Man act as a sort of epilogue and it seems Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the epilogue of Phase 3. But this will also be the end of “Volume 1” we could call it of the overall MCU. We know there are going to be more Marvel movies coming but this is the end of the story they started all those years ago. We knew Infinity War would be the beginning of the end for a long time because Marvel announced it long before most of Phase 3 even began production.
To this day Marvel has never released an official version of this teaser but the internet finds a way.
Phase 1 of the MCU was all about getting to know the Avengers so they could come together and triumph. Phase 2 was about testing their limitations as heroes. Phase 3 began by tearing them apart.
This MCUExchange supercut is still one of my favorites and we will be looking at more of them as the week goes on. For now I will leave you here. Check back tomorrow for more.
