This article contains information that may spoil the “Avengers: Infinity War” movie if read. So proceed with caution as I explain problems that the movie had.

The problem with the newest installment of “The Avengers” movies, is the ending. 18 movies over the span of ten years led up to this masterpiece. Each of those 18 movies giving us, the audience, clues to what was to come. It started with the stinger in the first movie “Iron Man,” when Nick Fury shows up at Tony Stark's’ place and informs him about the Avengers initiative.

The audience was instantly hooked.

As we anxiously awaited each movie, maybe even more so, our anticipation continued to grow when the credits started to roll. What new clue would Marvel give us? What could we expect to see next?

Even when Captain America comes out at the end of “Spiderman: Homecoming” and lets us know we waited for nothing, we chuckled and left the theater dreaming of the greatest movie to come: “Avengers: Infinity War.”

I will admit that I am not a grand comic book collector. I’m not saying I don’t own any. However, my tastes have ventured around comics such as “Sandman” and “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac”(Don’t judge!).

I didn't read all Marvel comic books, movies were great

The fact that I hadn’t read all of the Marvel comic books and still enjoyed them was what made the movies great.

The movies were created to include those of us who didn’t fall under the label comic book geek. And that is why we loved them. Until now.

As the movie neared its end, I, like most, waited for the Avengers to win. To do what they had always done. To save the day. They are the Avengers after all. When the credits rolled, I heard an audible gasp from the audience.

The movie can’t be over. Too many Avengers are dead. The credits will save us. But they didn't. At least not in my opinion. As I and everyone else anxiously awaited the credits to finish, I wondered what would happen to fix what Thanos had done. As the movie flashed to Nick Fury and his pager, I waited for the Avengers salvation.

When he dropped it and muttered, “mother fu**er,” the audience cheered. Unbeknownst to me, the symbol on the pager was one for Captain Marvel.

If I had not been at the first showing of the movie, and with what I will assume was a large comic book reading crowd, I would not have known what the symbol was. I still had to ask around to find out who Captain Marvel was.

Captain Marvel

This is my problem with the ending. Never has there been a clue or hint to Captain Marvel’s appearance, much less to who she is. My son argued that it wasn’t possible to plan this far in advance the storylines, but I beg to differ. The first Avengers movie back in 2012 previewed Thanos. So why was Captain Marvel never hinted at?

What is her connection to the Avengers? Why is she the most powerful of them all (so I’m told), and we have never seen one mention of her? I am sad to say that the creators of the Avengers have let us down after so many great movies. Hopefully, when the "Captain Marvel" movie comes out in 2019, it will make up for the missed clues.
