I screened Avengers: Endgame early, and I have to tell you all that it is so much more than we all anticipated. Endgame will be the pop culture moment for the 2010s. The film tells an epic story and in doing so, it incorporates so many Easter eggs and references to some of the most well-known pop culture moments in the past 40 years.
Since some of you are eagerly fidgeting to see the film, only a few days away. So, I have developed an assignment of sorts. Endgame referenced some key films, ones that you need to rewatch before coming to see the Avengers battle for their lives. Now, I am sure that you already went through the 22 MCU films that lead to this penultimate work. However, watching the films on this list will help you understand certain parts of Endgame. This will also keep you all off the spoiler sites until the opening night.

The films that follow are presented without order or context. I added clips, again without order or context, to prevent spoilers. You have your assignment. Start watching.
