‘Avengers: Endgame’ has broken all box office records. The Fandom for the film that closes the current phase of the MCU has reached crazy heights. However, some of us have very busy schedules and might not get to witness this cultural phenomenon unfurl in the theaters. Even if we do watch it, we might want to rewatch it at a later date, and relive all the emotions, the glory of the battle, and how the heroes came together for one last time to do whatever it took, to not only avenge Thanos’ actions in ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ but also to restore the way things were in the universe. Thus, we bring you when ‘Avengers: Endgame’ will be coming to Netflix and getting a DVD release. However, first, here is a little about the film.
Avengers: Endgame Plot: What is it about?
The plot of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ picks up where ‘Infinity War’ left off. We are given a taste of how personal the loss felt when Thanos snapped his fingers, wiping out half the universe’s population. This is shown through the loss of Hawkeye’s family. However, the Avengers, now aided by Captain Marvel are quick to retaliate and kill Thanos. However, they fail to reverse his actions, as Thanos had the foresight to destroy the Infinity Stones. Left without an option, years pass, and the heroes struggle with moving on, having lost their comrades and loved ones. Only Tony Stark seems to have gotten lucky and starts a family with Pepper. He even has a daughter, although he mourns the loss of Peter Parker. An accident, however, sets Ant-Man free, who we last saw trapped in the Quantum Realm. He rejoins the heroes and gives them hope that time travel might be possible through this realm. The heroes travel back in time gathering the stones in an attempt to stop Thanos. The irony in the reversal of roles is evident here, as it is now up to Thanos to stop the heroes from snapping their fingers.
The Mad Titan brings all the wrath to planet earth and even promises to destroy the entire universe this time because they have proven to be stubborn and has refused his gift of the perfect balance, which would have allowed life to thrive. However, this time our heroes are prepared, and they are all prepared to do whatever it takes to prevent it from happening again. An epic battle ensues, which has some of the most glorious moments in superhero cinema, and finally, our heroes come out on top. However, the entire war and victory against Thanos, comes at a great personal cost, and the film ends with each character getting their individual resolution, and moment to shine in what has been Anthony and Joe Russo’s grand coda.

Avengers: Endgame Netflix, DVD Release Date: When is it coming?
‘Avengers: Endgame’ released in theaters on April 26, 2019. Since films usually have a three-month theatrical release period, before coming to DVD, we expect it should get a DVD release sometime in August 2019, presumably by the third week of the month. To put things in context, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ released on April 27, 2018, and got the DVD release on August 14, 2018.
As for the Netflix release, unfortunately, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ will not be coming to Netflix. The contract Netflix had with Disney, which is who Marvel Studios is tied up with, stipulated that ‘Captain Marvel’ would be the last Marvel movie to come to Netflix. From here on, all Marvel content will be consolidated under one umbrella, which is the new streaming service Disney is launching, titled Disney+. This new streaming service is set to launch on November 12, 2019, so one might expect them to add ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to their film repository around that time. Disney+ could take a page out of Netflix’s book, and make ‘Endgame’ available for streaming during the holidays, that is on December 25, like Netflix did for ‘Infinity War‘.
With all that said and done, to experience the movie in its true magnitude, and to feel part of something larger than yourself, do try and catch the movie in theaters, as you feel a wider connection with the audiences and fans during many moments of the film.
