Laren seems to have hit a lot of the elements that I had in mind after watching it.
This was definitely an epic film but the closing moments didn't really feel like they fit the end of the era it's been set up as. I think part of it was I didn't expect the five years later aspect to remain. That seems like a very weird aspect to keep. Especially when it relates to Peter Parker and his circle of friends/acquaintances.
It really separates everything though. There's before Endgame and after Endgame. Marvel Studios has a lot of work ahead to get the new batch of characters up and running. Hopefully continuing series like Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Captain Marvel work in this new time frame.
With the time travel aspect fully formed it does make me wonder if Kang the Conqueror will be a possibility now. If so, that could be interesting.
How does all this hit the tv series still remaining? Daredevil and the Netflix shows are gone. Which saves them from having to explain how their worlds fit into the Endgame timeline. But Agents of Shield is back in May. It has a full season coming soon plus a final season after that. You have other shows that can/will be affected by this. That's something to consider. The upcoming shows seem to all be taking the Endgame world into consideration so we'll get more info as everything rolls out.
After Spider-Man in July it's going to be quite the pause for Marvel films. Does this help or hurt the brand? I think the newer properties they have set up are huge gambles. The Eternals and Shang-Chi are not exactly out of the box winners. GoTG 3, Doctor Strange/Captain Matvel/Black Panther 2 are safer bets. Maybe another Spider-Man film. Beyond that it's a different world. I'm not entirely sure I'm totally on board but I'll try to keep an open mind.
