Moviegoers around the world will have to wait for just 20 more days before "Avengers: Endgame",

a highly-anticipated conclusion of a phenomenon saga led by superheroes and super villains of Marvel, is globally released. Before joining force with remaining superheroes who are eager to have a payback with Thanos on 24th of April, let us have a brief and complete recount of all actions that had happened in the unmatched Marvel Cinematic Universe, a well-structured movie universe sparking craves for superhero movies around the world

"Iron Man", the first installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe, was released back in 2008 and other following movies successfully laid a solid foundation of superhero movies made by Marvel Studios. Leading roles played by A-list stars of Hollywood including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, and Chris Hemsworth have audaciously uplifted standards and expectations of superheroes movies and some of Marvel-made movies are also reigning in many records such as Avengers: Infinity War which is recognized as Hollywood's top grossing movie at 430 million baht and 232 million baht, which sets the highest record on its opening day around the world. These accomplishments do not happen overnight, it is a result of Marvel's tactful script which connects 21 movies released throughout 11 continuous years into a neat storyline that is going to be concluded with 'Avengers: Endgame' in 2019!

Marvel Cinematic Universe can be divided into three main phases:
Phase 1 – Origins of legendary heroes and the first assembly of 'The Avengers'

Marvel Studios kickstarted its biggest universe with six movies telling origins of the first six Marvel Cinematic Universe superheroes. The phase began with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk in 2008. A sequel of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, was released then in 2010. Thor introduced all fans to Space Stone, one of the six notorious Infinity Stones which was hidden inside The Tesseract. A sign of unite forces was made clear with Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011 and the first phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe reached its peak in 2012 as six Marvel heroes namely Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye appeared together in a 2012 movie of The Avengers to save the world. It also revealed that Loki has a Scepter and it possesses a power of the second Infinity Stone called Mind Stone while Thanos presented himself for the first time as an end credit cameo.

Phase 2 – An unfathomable terror caused by Infinity Stones and Thanos's wicked plan

Six movies are woven to form the Phase 2 of Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starting with Iron Man 3 in 2013 and Thor: The Dark World where Aether or Reality Stone is categorized as the third Infinity Stone. The line-up was followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, an adventure of interstellar nomads who would like to put their hands on The Orb or Power Stone, the fourth Infinity Stone. Phase 2 ended with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man in 2015. At the very last minute of this phase, Thanos put on his Infinity Gauntlet and boldly said "Fine, I'll do it myself.", implying the beginning of the Infinity Stones hunt in the next phase.

Phase 3 – Thanos's devastating snap and losses of The Avengers

Shattering relationships of the Avengers members were unfolded in Captain America: Civil War, released in 2016. As the Avengers were divided into 2 groups; one led by Iron Man and another y Captain America. Doctor Strange, made a debut alongside his ultimate weapon called The Eye of Agamotto which contains Time Stone—the fifth Infinity Stone. Three movies were released in 2017 namely Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok. Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2018 was majorly circled around Wakanda, an exotic state full of advanced technologies, since Wakanda is the battlefield of both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel's biggest and most bloodshed war started when Thanos accomplished his quest by owning all six Infinity Stones, especially the long-lost and mysterious Reality Stone, and he snapped his fingers to vaporize half of living creatures in all realms to complete his ideal. Thanos's snap has caused severe consequences to the Avengers as only six original members and a handful of heroes can survive this annihilation. In the same timeline, Ant-Man returned last year with a sequel entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp in which its end credit revealed that The Wasp and her parents were also melted away by Thanos's dreadful snap. Most recently, Marvel's most powerful heroine named Captain Marvel appeared in her own movie and the Phase 3 of Marvel Cinematic Universe is now destined to end with its biggest fanfare in Avengers: Endgame.

"Avengers: Endgame", a definitive conclusion of a legacy superhero movies the world is waiting for

The Avengers' most disturbing defeat in Avengers: Infinity War means half of creatures living in all realms, including superheroes, were wiped out. This loss, however, will not be a wasteful one as all surviving Avengers members including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, as well as new recruits such as Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Rocket, Nebula, and supporting members led by War Machine will step up to stop Thanos in every possible way they can as Tony "Iron Man" Stark says "It's not about how much we lost, it's about how much we have left." As Avengers: Endgame is going to be a significant turning point for all superheroes, fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe should not miss a chance to see the final chapter of this 11-year superhero movie universe by reserving a seat in advance at Major and SF applications as well as box office of every cinema across Thailand. Avengers: Endgame is going to be officially released in Thailand on Wednesday, 24th April 2019!

To exhilarate Thai Marvel fans, The Walt Disney (Thailand) Co., Ltd. is going to launch its biggest activity named "Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame Integrated Event" where fans can purchase official Marvel merchandise from licensees and join countless activities. This event will take place at Fashion Hall, Siam Paragon, from 23 April to 8 May 2019.
