The most anticipated movie in 2019, Avengers Endgame… a film that recently topped Fandango’s list of most anticipated movies of 2019 (beating Captain Marvel and Star Wars: Episode IX).
But the biggest question is when will Avengers Endgame be on Netflix?
Thanos successfully wiped out half the universe after collecting all six Infinity Stones and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
For months, Marvel kept Avengers Endgame’s official title a secret, saying to reveal it would be a spoiler. Turns out, it ended up being titled what everyone expected all along.
The “endgame” in Avengers: Endgame refers to a line spoken by Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War. Before giving the Time Stone to Thanos, he tells Tony Stark, “We’re in the endgame now.”
The definition of endgame is: the final stage of a game such as chess or bridge, when few pieces or cards remain. With only a few Avengers left and half of the universe gone, the stakes have never been higher.
The movie is rated PG-13 (for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and some language) and directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.
Avengers Endgame release date and runtime
Avengers: Endgame is set to hit theaters on April 26, 2019. The official runtime is three hours and two minutes, making it the longest Marvel movie yet.
Avengers Endgame released date on Netflix
Avengers Infinity War was released on Netflix in December 25, 2018 and its purpose is to get you the most hyped for the final film, Avengers Endgame which will be in Cinemas in April 2019.
Since the Infinity War was released in April 2018 and debut on Netflix in December, we can assume that Endgame will also debut on the streaming platform in December 2019.
Unfortunately, over the last few months, it’s become clear that the relationship between Marvel and Netflix was winding down.
Netflix canceled Marvel series one after another, even cancelling Jessica Jones before season 3 released. Netflix hasn’t officially made their reasons known though, but it’s likely due to a decline in viewership accompanied by changing corporate priorities.
And there are rumors that Marvel-Netflix shows will come to a conclusion just in time for the launch of Disney+ in late-2019.
Although shows are different from movies, we can assume that ones there’s a Disney+ looming, Avengers Endgame might not be on Netflix.
Did Netflix cancel the Marvel shows because of Disney+?
Well, yes and no.
Netflix pays money to produce the Marvel shows, but they don’t own the IP. Those shows have clear and consistent branding to Marvel Studios.
So when the Disney+ service starts airing other Marvel shows tied to the popular films, any Marvel series on Netflix will service as de facto advertising for the other Marvel shows on Disney+.
In that way, then, the Marvel-Netflix shows were about to become marketing for a streaming service that directly competes with Netflix.
Likewise, Disney is going to pull all of their content from Netflix, so Netflix will generally lack a relationship with Marvel’s parent company and will be losing a lot of popular content that transitions over to the competing Disney+ service.
Whether Avengers Endgame will be on Netflix or not, we’ll still get the opportunity to watch it on an alternative streaming service.
