Episode 173: Endgame - The Legacy of the MCU
For over a decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been catering to our superhero movie cravings, resulting in a huge, expanded universe, 21 interlinking films, multiple povs on the same universe and some of the cinematic high points of the last ten years. The recent release of Endgame has seen the passing of the torch in many ways. Whatever you think of the MCU, and there are probably few people with unmixed feelings, it has to be acknowledged that turning out 21 films in various styles of the genre without ever breaking the streak that these are all highly character driven pieces, and then fitting them all together is a huge achievement. The week, Jules and Madeleine start with Endgame and look back via character arcs at the journeys the Marvel superheros have taken - the good, the bad, the ugly...and the decidedly weird.
This is a very SPOILERY episode. We talk endings for almost every Marvel film, including Endgame and Captain Marvel. Consider this fair warning!
