Further Review: A superhero movie viewer’s No. 1 problem

The good news: The latest installment in the popular Marvel Comics Cinematic Universe opens today: “Avengers: Endgame.” The bad news: It’s long—very long. Which could pose a problem to those of us who do not have superpowered bladders.

Thirteen summers ago, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked during a relatively small Comic-Con panel whether he could ever see his company’s characters interacting on screen. “Who knows?” Feige teased. “This is a big new experiment for Marvel. But it’s no coincidence that we have the rights to Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Cap” – and right then, before he could finish, he was interrupted by the volume of audience glee and hopeful extrapolation.

‘Avengers’ winning streak not threatened by ‘Life of the Party’

“Avengers: Infinity War” easily retained the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office for a third straight weekend, adding $61.8 million in ticket sales.

Review: It’s not all fun and games in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

“Infinity War” is a very dark film about loss and grief, following our group of superheroes through the traumas and violence they’ve endured. Don’t worry though, there’s still a healthy amount of easy humor threaded throughout (one of the hallmarks of the Marvel superhero films, where the heroes crack wise as much as they crack heads).

Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is a delicious blend of meaty action and sublime silliness

When Cate Blanchett, as Hela the Goddess of Death, strides through the treasure storehouse of her father, Odin in “Thor: Ragnarok,” she casts her eye about. One by one, the film’s black-antlered villainess assesses the artifacts – which include the highly sought-after blue “infinity stone” – with a series of blunt dismissals: “Fake!” “Weak!” “Smaller than I thought it would be!”
