Here is it is. The biggest battle in Game of Thrones history. And it was a huge letdown.

But does the failure of big action mean “The Long Night” itself was a total failure? Not necessarily. Because nestled in that murky brawl were scenes of sublime beauty, unforgettable misery, and triumph that has been years in the making. Let’s sort through this.

Every MCU Character After Avengers Endgame

Avengers: Endgame has been billed as a final chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, and, well, it is. Definitively. While there are still plenty of adventures to be had and sequels to be made, watching this film is like turning the final page of a large book. There’s a powerful sense of closure, even as you know a second volume is on the way.

But this movie gives us a chance to regroup and find our bearings. It puts the remaining pieces of the Marvel universe together so we can get a status update on just about everyone – alive, dead, or piles of dust. So before we launch into the next era of the MCU, let’s run down where everyone is, where they are going, and whether or not they still draw breath when the credits roll on Endgame.

Major spoilers ahead.

The Nun Reviews

While The Nun was critically slammed, there’s no denying the dollar signs that appeared in New Line Cinema’s eyes when the Conjuring spin-off made $365 million worldwide. A sequel was an inevitability. It was just a matter of when, and who would be involved.

The Perfection Trailer

I’m just going to straight with you: you shouldn’t watch the trailer for The Perfection. But you should pencil May 24, 2019 into your calendar because that’s the day this movie drops on Netflix and you should set aside two hours to watch it. And you should know as little as possible. Because I’m going to be straight with you again: seeing this movie totally blind to what it was about at Fantastic Fest last year was a highlight of my moviegoing life. Seriously.

But hey, I can’t stop you from clicking on a movie trailer, so feel free to watch it below. I will say this much: whoever cut this thing deserves a medal of some kind because it offers a special slice of the total insanity that the movie delivers without actually spoiling any key plot points or even hinting at the biggest and wildest surprises that this perverse, hilarious, and brutal movie has in store.
