Marvel Studios‘ hype machine is on overdrive, and for good measure, ahead of the release of its biggest title yet, ‘Avengers: Endgame‘, the culmination of over a decade of theatrical productions, spanning 22 blockbuster films, due in theaters in just under ten days.
On movie ticketing sites KenyaBuzz and PataHapa, tickets to advance Thursday screenings of Endgame in select theaters in Kenya, have already sold out in well under 48 hours. Initially scheduled to premiere on Friday 26th April 2019, cinemas and corporates sneaked in early Thursday 25th April 2019 screening offerings this week, to the delight of fans, as 6.30pm shows promptly sold out, with 10.00pm shows so far boasting bookings of roughly over 70% across locations.
The latest, and probably the final Avengers: Endgame trailer titled ‘To The End’, released today uses carefully crafted footage from each of the Marvel Studios superhero films to construct a beautiful trip down memory lane that creates some form of finality to the impending film. This really is the end folks – we’re wrapping up this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and only God, as well as Disney execs and creators, know what’s in store for our beloved heroes.
In an interview with Variety, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige reveals how the MCU is set to tie in with television ‘in a very big way’, thanks to the development, and impending launch of Disney+ streaming later this year. In case you’re still in denial, this really is it, though in what way, we’re all not sure yet!

The “To the End” trailer collates scenes from each of the 21 films we’ve seen, leading up to the pivotal actions of Endgame: remember Tony Stark with his arms wide open in the middle of the desert introducing his very first prototypes; Captain America grabbing his starred shield for the very first time, and the Black Panther, T’Challah looking at his subjects by the waterfalls of his Kingdom, proudly shouting “Wakanda forever!”
As you wade through the Social Media streets however, be wary of Endgame spoilers which are allegedly creeping up on a host platforms including Twitter. The film’s directors, the Russo brothers, remind us that Thanos still demands your silence, so #DontSpoilTheEndgame.
