The Fan Theories
Story and Pacing
This movie really is an intensive, action packed ride, that never lets up on the story telling. The acting is amazing, from the smallest cast member to the largest – and not just Antman. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are definitely the needed comedic relief in much of the movie. They’re like the lemon sorbet between courses at a fancy restaurant.
This is the part that just astonishes me: there are quite a large number of surprises in this movie that I have not heard even a whisper of a rumour online. Many closed sets would have assisted in the silence, but an entire crew being so tight-lipped on this scale is astonishing. I can tell you for starters that not one cast list online is currently completely correct. Some people barely make an appearance despite the hype, while others are a surprisingly large influence. This intricate web of stories has been spun by masterful storytellers for 11 years. Many strands are brought together in this movie, and you wonder if that had been the intent all along. That said, the fate of some favoured characters are not completely resolved by the end of the movie, and that would suggest new movies (some of which have already been announced) to solve these obvious questions.

This was by far the hardest review I’ve ever had to write. mostly because saying pretty much anything substantive about what happens in the moview would ruin it.
So I’ll share only three more facts about the film:
1. Take tissues. You’ll need them.
2. There is no end credit scene to wait for.
3. Yes, there is a Stan Lee cameo, probably his last one ever. Make sure to catch up with Infinity War before going to see this one. If you’ve seen any of the Marvel movies in the last decade, you’ll want to watch this one on the big screen.
