The recently released Avengers: Endgame movie posters have taken the world by storm, and it was only mere hours before the internet did what it does best: photoshopped them into memes.
Social media is no stranger to turning Marvel posters into internet humor. Earlier this month, photoshopped memes of Captain Marvel’s poster became a viral online trend, so it’s no surprise that the Avengers: Endgame posters weren’t able to escape the internet’s insatiable need for memes. With less than a month left before the US release date of the final Avengers franchise movie on April 26, the reveal of these posters kickstarted even more anticipation for the film.
The posters, showing a total of 32 beloved Marvel characters with the caption ‘Avenge The Fallen’ etched over their faces, were posted on the official Avengers' twitter page on March 26. The posters featured headshots of almost every Marvel hero, including some villains (we’re looking at you, Loki).
Avengers: Infinity War was possibly one of the most devastating superhero films ever released, and these posters are definitely making us relive all those feels from the last movie. The Marvel characters who are known to be alive are shown in color photos, while those presumed dead are depicted in black and white. Each poster also features the caption, "Avenge The Fallen," just as a reminder of how high the stakes are for this final movie in the franchise.
But of course, since the internet is the internet, people immediately took advantage of the "Avenge The Fallen" tagline and turned it into a viral meme featuring other fallen heroes from pop culture. And we have to admit, it's pretty fantastic.
While the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War might have left you not feeling so good, brace yourself because these memes land somewhere between laugh-out-loud funny and hilariously dark.
Compiled by Mashable, this harmlessly funny collection of memes has everything from Alf to The Office and even former RuPaul's Drag Race contestants. Kenny from South Park also makes an appearance, and with his ridiculous amount of deaths, that would require some endless avenging.
The hilariously dark round of the Avenge The Fallen memes starts off strong with some dead Disney parents: Bambi’s mom, Nemo’s mom, and Simba’s dad. Because let’s be honest, we’re still not over any of those and we probably never will be.
We’ve even got an early 2000s wonder, Wilson, making an appearance.
With the Avengers: Endgame movie's release date coming up fast, it’s nice to have some entertainment to hold us over until then. If there aren’t enough Marvel memes for you here, why not check out some Ant-Man and The Wasp, Deadpool, or Captain America memes?
We’ll leave the wildly popular (though questionable), Thanos memes up to you to find.
