What happens in “Avengers: Endgame”? We have no idea. But in the latest “Low Key” podcast, we talk about our hopes, predictions and fears for the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stories we’ve followed for more than a decade. You can listen on Apple or right here:
To be 100 percent clear: podcast co-hosts Keith Dennie, Aaron Lanton and I have not, as of this writing, seen “Endgame,” or heard any spoilers. We’ve carefully avoided leaked scenes, and covered our ears whenever friends tried to drop hints.
So this episode of “Low Key” is based only on our opinions — and our fandom of the 21 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. We don’t claim to know everything — anyone else have trouble keeping track of all the Infinity Stones? — but we do love the movies and the comics that inspired them.
The podcast includes our full list of dream scenarios, serious expectations, and anxieties about “Avengers: Endgame.” But here are just a few of the things we’re hoping to see in the film:
-A good scene with Hulk and Groot;
-More about the relationship between Bruce (Mark Ruffalo) and Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) that was such a big part of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and then just kind of fizzled;
-More use of the Wakandan technology used on Bucky/The Winter Soldier/The White Wolf (Sebastian Stan);
-For Kang the Conquerer to finally get his moment;
-And finally, for two characters we love to finally get that dance.
And hey, we wouldn’t hate it if Disney somehow took advantage of the fact that it now owns a few characters it didn’t own last year. But maybe that’s a wish for another day.
