After 11 years and 22 movies, Marvel’s latest release, “Avengers: Endgame,” has shattered all expectations. The film, which broke box office records by grossing $1.2 billion worldwide and $350 million domestically in just its opening weekend (Box Office Mojo), is unlike any Marvel movie before it. The blend of over 50 characters, past movie references and an epic soundtrack perfectly combine to mark the bittersweet end of an era.

The main theme song, composed by Alan Silvestri, made its debut in the first Avengers movie over seven years ago. The tune, with its heroic crescendos and powerful brass, pulls on heartstrings and enhances whichever scene it appears in with a triumphant tone.

For the first film of the Avengers series, the song plays in the background as a 360 degree, slow-motion shot follows the original six Avengers gearing up in the final battle. In Infinity War, the theme kicks off Thor’s entrance to the battle in Wakanda. In Endgame, chills form as the nostalgic tune returns once more.

This time, the tune is played during one of Captain America’s infamous pep-talks before a daring mission, and makes a final appearance towards the end of the credits, bidding an emotional, sentimental goodbye to the some of the beloved characters and actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The use of such a heroic theme song throughout the Avengers saga captures the excitement and thrilling concept of superhero team ups, something that Marvel fans have come to expect and love over the years. After listening to “The Avengers” and the rest of Silvestri’s brilliantly woven soundtracks, one can’t help but imagine themself as the superhero on the big screen, donning the suit and fighting alongside fellow heroes.

    Articulate, insightful and very well written movie review! It’s hard to believe that Ms.. Gibson is still in high school since she writes like a professional film critic!
