Avengers: Endgame scenes that still live in my head rent-free
Avengers: Endgame took place this year of 2023; 5 years after Thanos’ ‘snap’ in Avengers: Infinity War in Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the MCU’s Infinity Saga came to an end with Endgame, it inevitably offered us stunning and jaw-dropping scenes that every fan adored.
I sincerely want to watch it for the first time again and have the same thrill. Sadly, I don’t have a Quantum Realm or my own team of Time Heist Avengers to go time travelling. All I can do at this point is watch the movie again and relive the same feelings as I’m drawn into their world.
With that, here is a trip down memory lane of wholesome moments in Avengers: Endgame that I still and will always remember!
Spoiler alert: I’ll skip the heartbreaking and tear-jerking parts. I’ve been in so much pain watching those certain scenes (if you know, you know) and I don’t want to bring you along. So, the scenes that come next are those that will help you recall the “brighter” side.
Scott Lang and the struggles of his taco
Scott Lang (Ant-man) deserves more appreciation, and tacos, of course. This specific scene in Avengers: Endgame was like a calm before the storm, unless the reason why his tacos flew away was because of his squad’s landing. Poor Ant-man, good thing Dr. Bruce Banner (Hulk) had spare tacos for him to share.
“It’s Scott.” “As a baby.”
Yes, another Scott Lang moment. Can I be blamed if he’s an actual fun guy? Hulk, Steve Rogers (Captain America), and Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) were attempting to operate the time machine properly in this scene in Avengers: Endgame since Tony (Ironman) wasn’t a member of the team yet. In less than a minute, Scott, the subject, went through adolescence, late adulthood, and infancy once again. It was much funnier because of Hulk and Captain’s exchange of lines by Hulk saying that Scott would still grow from being a baby.
“I love you 3,000“
Who would have imagined that this endearing exchange between Tony Stark and his lovely daughter, Morgan, would become synonymous with the purest kind of love?
Attentive Scott Lang
Because I keep bringing up Ant-man, I’m personally reconsidering who my favorite Avenger is. Once more, can you blame me? He’s a cool guy! When Thor was asked to talk about the Aether (the Reality stone of the Infinity stones) in this particular moment, everyone was confused by what he was saying, but Scott was paying close attention. He seems to like hearing about Thor’s love life, judging by the smile and small nods.
Embarrassed Smart Hulk
They agreed on the idea of obtaining the Infinity Stones by traveling back in time in Avengers: Endgame. When they returned to New York in 2012, the Smart Hulk had a flashback of his previous self smashing things and yelling without thinking. Actually, if Captain America and Ant-man look at me like that, I’d feel much worse.
Thor is (always) worthy!
Now that we’re talking about their time travel experiences, I’ll never forget this particular scene. At this Avengers: Endgame part, Thor was still considered worthy of his hammer, Mjolnir, and was still able to “call” it. Given that Thor experienced many hardships along with everyone else, this moment serves more as comfort than as entertainment. He sought comfort, and his mother, Frigga, provided it. From his Mjolnir, he sensed the validation he needed. You’ve always been worthy, Thor!
“That is America’s ass“
This gives a vibe of Man Vs. Self as present Steven Rogers fought with his 2012 self. Obviously, he was the strongest opponent that he could face as he knew his own capabilities, but also the easiest one to beat as he was aware of his weaknesses (in this scene, it was his old mate and best friend, Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier).) After the fight, Captain took a look at his 2012 self lying on the floor acknowledging the fact that he was America’s ass.
Howard Stark meets Howard Potts
Okay, I said not to include a tearjerker, but this Avengers: Endgame scene is so wonderful that I just can’t resist it. In fact, I love this cut. To obtain the Tesseract (Space stone) and the Pym particles they would need to travel back in time, Tony and Steve traveled to New Jersey in 1970. Tony unintentionally ran into Howard Stark, his father. He then introduced himself as Howard Potts (using his father’s first name and his wife’s last name). This was such a wonderful moment that it made me joyful rather than sad.
Also deserving of far greater recognition is Hulk. He was one of the smartest people in the room (apart from Tony), and it was obvious that he understood what would happen. Putting his own safety aside, he snapped their Avengers’ version of the Infinity Stone gauntlet, bringing everyone, who had been snapped five years before, back to life. He was just fantastic.
Captain America is worthy too!
Finally, the scene where the “Big Three” (Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor) fought Thanos has arrived. When the camera pans to Mjolnir being slowly raised from the ground, hitting Thanos, and falling into Captain’s hands in this particular scene. Proving that he really is worthy. Thor saying “I knew it!” added chills and goosebumps to the scene. I really wish to hear the loud cheers in the cinema once more.
“On your left“
We saw another mind-blowing sight just three minutes after the one where the Captain used Thor’s hammer. Sam Wilson (Falcon), called out to Captain America just as he decided to take on Thanos’ whole army alone. Uttering the famous phrase “on your left” from the film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Thanks to the Sorcerer’s inter-dimensional gateways, our favorite Marvel characters appeared after this scene. We once more experience goosebumps when T’Challa (Black Panther), Dr. Stephen Strange (Dr. Strange), Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Heart), and many more heroes team together to fight Thanos. Near the end of the battle, Carol Denvers (Captain Marvels) also made an amazing entrance. This fight sequence is one that I could watch over and over again.
This Spiderman and Ironman moment
In this Avengers: Endgame moment, Peter, as usual, had not learned that battles were not actually ideal for chitchats; but Tony no longer cared. While it was only a few seconds for Peter, it’s been 5 years for Tony. The kid had no idea how he was missed. It’s a heartwarming scene especially if you were used to Tony’s tough parental love to Peter for the past years.
“Don’t worry, she’s got help.”
The women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will bring this to a close. Of course, we would love to see all of our female heroes in this, Natasha in particular, but I still get a little teary-eyed every time I see this specific moment. Even though this scene was short, I’m delighted they still had time to shine and demonstrate their girl-boss abilities. I love it!
And that concludes the Avengers: Endgame scenes that still and always will be kept in my treasured memories.
There are still a lot, but I left it for you to decide. Although we can’t watch a movie with exactly the same excitement as the first time, we can still watch it again to remember our favorite parts. It is accessible on Disney+ and other streaming services.
How about you, then? What are the Avengers: Endgame moments that still live in your mind rent-free?
