MCU Fans Reveal Their #1 Favorite Scene From ‘Avengers: Endgame’
Avengers: Endgame was an action-packed saga, filled to the brim with allusions designed to conjure nostalgia and sentimental moments poised to pull at the heartstrings. From Tony Stark and Peter Parker’s reuniting to Widow’s sacrifice for Hawkeye and Thor’s brief moment with his mother, the epic conclusion was the perfect potion for any enthusiast.
Boasting a 94% critics score and a 91% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, Avengers: Endgame delivered quite the satisfying finale and, unlike Game of Thrones, rose to the challenge of closing a long-gestating narrative arc —in the MCU’s case, one spanning over a decade (Iron Man premiered in 2008).
When considering a film like Endgame, there are so many glorious scenes to choose from that selecting the best one, trying to determine your favorite scene — the one ranking superior to all others and conjuring the most emotional reaction — is no easy challenge. However, when browsing through discussion forums on the matter — from your favorite part to your top five favorite moments — one trend quickly emerges.
Though several scenes come to mind, many MCU fans tend to focus on one scene in particular when selecting their favorite and — considering it ties into one of the film’s earlier installments — the scene that takes the gold should come as no surprise. However, before we get to the one glorious moment, let’s go through some honorable mentions that come up frequently in the above two discussion boards.
A few of the best scenes from ‘Avengers: Endgame’
- Captain America assembling the Avengers; he finally gets to utter those two iconic words, “Avengers, assemble,” and the crowd goes wild.
- Tony Stark says, “I am Iron Man” before snapping his fingers and sacrificing himself. Stark deserved this glorious denoument, as it epitomized his journey from the selfish egomaniac to the selfless savior.
- The final battle, during which all the Avengers come together to, at last, defeat Thanos. A family though and through.
MCU fans’ No. 1 favorite scene: Cap wielding Mjolnir
If we’ve learned anything from three standalone Thor installments and several epic mash-ups, one must be worthy to wield Mjolnir, and such worthiness is reserved for a select few.
Back in Age of Ultron, a handful of the Avengers tried to lift Mjolnir, yet they failed. However, Captain America was able to move the hammer just a smidge; Thor perked up in his seat as a look of concern came over his face. Cap then surrendered. In Endgame, when Cap wields the hammer and uses it to bludgeon Thanos, Thor’s previous inclination— that Rogers has always been worthy — is confirmed. And, fans everywhere, virtually lose their minds. Fans discussed the scene here:

When it comes down to it, this moment in the film confirmed previous inclinations and gave Captain America the perfect goodbye. The righteous hero was always worthy, and that’s how we saw him last.
