Marvel’s “Infinity War” follow-up looks intense, violent.
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW
Parents need to know that Avengers: Endgame is the hugely anticipated follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War; it will be the fourth and final chapter in the Marvel Avengers saga. Following the intense, heartbreaking events of Infinity War, the remaining Avengers — including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) — must find a way to stop Thanos (Josh Brolin), who holds the key to the destruction of the universe. They might find help from an unlikely ally: Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). The last film upped the stakes in intensity and violence, so it’s likely that this one will continue the trend. But it won’t be easy to keep tweens and teens who’ve seen the other Marvel movies away from this epic ending.
