Avengers: Endgame finishes the story begun in last year’s Infinity War and represents the culmination of all the stories begun 11 years ago with Iron Man. We were surprised how much we liked Infinity War. How does the direct sequel fare?

After a long absence, scheduling difficulties, and some technical glitches, Bits Don’t Byte is back! We bring you another long, nerdy, in-depth discussion of a movie.
If you’ve heard my movie podcast, then you know I was really jazzed about Infinity War. Find out what my co-hosts Joshua Kehe, his brother Ben think. We also discuss the MCU in general – the past and future including our favorites, least favorites, and theories for Avengers 4.
Unfortunately with our remote podcast set up we had some technical issues. Please forgive the less-than-pristine audio quality. We’ll try and have that back up to snuff next time.
Speaking of next time, we’d like to do these more often and have several topics we’re excited to talk about in-depth provided we can schedule it. So hopefully the next episode will be out than 6 months from now.
Surprise! We didn’t think we were going to cover this movie, but here we are. The latest and biggest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe broke all kinds of records, but most shockingly we both liked it a lot.
