The same has been the case for the new "Avengers: Infinity War".
The movie's ending - just one of the spoilers that divulging here would bring Thanos' fist down upon me - will be the major talking point.
"I've had that phone call from my accountant that said, "I was about to call you to tell you that you're bankrupt". Now, we have to wait one more year for Avengers 4 to wrap everything up, but that doesn't mean Infinity War didn't offer up some clues for the resolution.
The mad super villain Thanos is ready to take charge and secure all six of the infinity stones to create his ideal idea of humanity.
For all the conflict Loki caused in "The Avengers", it's easy to forget that Thanos is the one who sent him to Earth to get the Tesseract. He's a tough bag guy.
Okay, so the film's post-credits scene pretty much takes place shortly after Thanos accomplishes his goal of obtaining all six Infinity Stones and wiping out half of the universe with just a snap of his fingers. Tonight, we're going to skip the news and instead we're going to bleep and blur the biggest moments from Marvel movies - whether they need it or not. Its sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron", launched with $191 million. Trust me. This movie, more so than every other Marvel movie before it, is like going to a straight-up packed-stadium concert. In a decade of Marvel movies, never has so much depended on so few.
Thanos is the main character of this film which makes sense because there are too many other main characters to do them justice so the focus needed to be on the motivations of the villain. Red Skull's disappearance was a loose plot end that they wrapped up. "Infinity War" rarely, surprisingly feels as overstuffed as such a superhero smorgasbord ought to, a testament to the filmmakers' adept plate-spinning skills. It's exciting and fun. "Force Awakens", which made $57 million on its Thursday night preview in 2015, holds the title for the biggest opening.
Avengers: Infinity War ably juggles a dizzying array of MCU heroes in the fight against their gravest threat yet, and the result is a thrilling, emotionally resonant blockbuster that (mostly) realizes its gargantuan ambitions.
The movie is also off to a big start overseas, nabbing $95 million since opening internationally on Wednesday.
