"Endgame" not only answers the cliffhanger of its predecessor that puny $300 million, 156-minute "appetizer" better known as "Infinity War" but ties together the entire 22-film arc of the Marvel "cinematic universe," begun with 2008's "Iron Man".Generous in humor, spirit and sentimentality, Anthony and Joe Russo's "Endgame" is a surprisingly full feast of blockbuster-making that, through some time-traveling magic, looks back nostalgically at Marvel's decade of world domination. It was Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark (Iron Man) who kicked things off for the MCU, and it is he who opens "Endgame" and most often takes center stage.While Marvel has improved in gender parity (Brie Larson's recently launched Captain Marvel plays a small but pivotal role here), its cosmos could still use some funny actresses."Endgame" will likely be most remembered for its teary goodbyes.Lee's swan song, as much as anything, verifies that "Endgame" marks the end of an era.Marvel's assembly lines are already humming and I suspect it will be some time before we understand just what Marvel has wrought with these movies.It's not a spoiler to say that "Endgame" verges more on the latter ... at least I don't think so."Avengers: Endgame" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
