The mystery has been revealed! With the premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame currently underway with screenings for fans and critics being shown all around the country, there was still one big question mark – what was the movie going to debut with on Rotten Tomatoes? The stakes have never been higher for a Marvel film, as Endgame marks the final installment for phase one and is most likely the last time that audiences will see some of the iconic Avengers characters on screen together.

Well, now that spoiler-free reviews are slowly making their way online, Endgame’s rating has finally been revealed.
So, was it a yay or a nay? Choose wisely, Rotten Tomatoes…
Well, fans can let out a sigh of relief! The official score for Avengers: Endgame is a Certified Fresh, near-perfect score of 97%!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
