Throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s eleven year run there have been several directors and writers who have brought these movies and characters to life. The Russo Brothers first Marvel movie debut was Captain America: The Winter Soldier where they displayed a great sense of understanding the character of Captain America and creating a superhero movie on a lesser scale than some of the other Marvel films that had been made at the time.
Only until recently The Winter Soldier was my favorite film because of its more personal storyline and its impactful significance to the overall plot of the MCU. Since The Winter Soldier, however, they have made three other films (Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame) that are clearly some of the greatest superhero movies ever made. (I will only be talking about Civil War, Infinity War considering that Endgame ends with a profound conclusion.) But what makes these three movies so perfectly composed and entertaining? Well, it’s simple. The Russo Brothers like cliffhangers.
For example; let’s look at the endings of these three movies.
