When it comes to capping off the journey for a lot of established characters, Avengers: Endgame is pitch-perfect. Sure, there are plot holes if you find them but in terms of giving us an emotional experience, there wasn’t much else you could ask for. However, while the movie is generally liked by the public, there is one scene that caused a lot of fans to cringe and it wasn’t just the annoying incels either.

As the title of this article suggests, the Endgame women assemble scene received a mixed reaction when it was released. Granted, there are already a lot of cheesy scenes throughout the movie, including the awesome portals sequence but this one just felt a wee bit pandering to some, especially since some people feel that Marvel hasn’t earned a moment like that yet.

That being said, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely don’t mind the scene at all. Why? McFeely told SlashFilm, "We’ve learned this a lot – emotional logic versus intellectual logic. Emotional logic wins every time. So I recognize that there are some people who are like, 'It’s pretty convenient that all of the ladies are all in one spot,' but the eight-year-old girl next to me loses her mind and wears a T-shirt, and I’m good with it."

So yeah, try to think of how the scene gives girls hope since they are finally growing up in an age where being a woman is no longer something to be laughed at. Yeah, it’s pandering as hell but the whole film is arguably just fan service so what’s wrong with a little more?

Avengers: Endgame is now on Blu-ray and DVD.
