What We Want From 'Avengers: Endgame'

Season 1, Ep. 28

What happens in "Avengers: Endgame"? We have no idea. But in this episode, 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.


To be 100 percent clear: We 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 MCU 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. 


We also talk this episode about what DC could learn from Marvel's films.
