''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' and ''Film/AvengersEndgame'', being the culmination of 10 years of movies in over twenty films with dozens of superheros. ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' was billed as one as well - one of the only modern crossover films that wasn't instantly spurned by critics and audiences - but certainly pales in comparison.


Epic Movies are ''movie'' movies. These movies are what make Hollywood ''Hollywood''. These movies are so big they need '''''italic emphasis'''''. These movies are what we think of when we think of the stars getting out of limousines to walk down red carpets while being shot by the paparazzi and entering rooms with grand staircases and lit by chandeliers. The grand, gigantic, sweeping, glossy, flamboyant spectacles that define and are the triumphs of the film industry. The scope of these Greatest Stories Ever Filmed and the amount of time and money invested in them means that only one comes along every few years. 5 years in the making! 3-and-a-half hours long! Two {{intermission}}s! $200,000,000 budget! 50,000 cast members! AllStarCast! A+ list actors! OscarBait to the core! Coming soon to an IMAX theater near you! [[OverlyLongGag Can't even be described by sentences that don't end in an exclamation mark!]] These are the ''[[Literature/WarAndPeace War and Peaces]]'' and ''[[Literature/MobyDick Moby Dicks]]'' of cinema. If they were books, they'd be {{Doorstopper}}s (especially if they're adapted from books that ''are'' Doorstoppers.)
