Avengers: Endgame is one of the year's most highly anticipated movies. Here's how to prepare to watch it.

Okay, listen. Avengers: Endgame opens everywhere tonight at midnight and is going to be be one of the biggest movies of the year. If it’s anything like Infinity War, it’s going to break hearts, pockets and a bunch of records. Now the Marvel Cinematic Universe has quite a lot of movies (22 to be exact). So if you’re just becoming a fan, you’ve got some real catching up to do.

Watch the movies in chronological order.

Now listen. I know it’s going to take some time, but watch all the movies or at least watch the first couple of movies in the MCU because those characters are more likely to die. You should really refresh your background knowledge on some of your beloved characters and try and see how they’ve grown and developed through the course of their storyline.

This is going sound nerdy, but you should do some research on the Marvel comic books.

The movies are pretty accurate but they don’t get everything right. Do some of your own research and your might understand some of the characters and their story lines better. Plus you might find some new theories about Endgame that you never would have thought of with just the movies.

Listen to the soundtrack.

I know many people really overlook a movie’s soundtrack and never listen to it outside of the movie, but you should really take some time to sit down and listen to the songs and get a feel for the sound and how it connects with the movie. They’re loaded with hidden emotion that cannot be shown just though dialogue and acting.

Pay more attention to the acting.

Yeah, I know this sounds dumb. Like of course you pay attention to the acting when you’re watching a movie. I know a lot of people don’t give the Marvel actors credit for their acting and think they are just doing some cheesy superhero acting. Marvel characters are way more complex than what people see and the actors convey this really well just through their facial expressions and how they deliver their dialogue. Next time you watch a really meaningful scene, really pay attention to what the actor is doing.

Remember the dialogue.

Marvel loves to repeat dialogue and have recurring jokes and events. If you don’t try to remember the dialogue, you can miss out on some really funny jokes and Easter eggs for upcoming Marvel movies. Plus, if you get confused (I know I do), remember the line and Google it later.

Watch the end credits.

I can’t even put into words the anger I feel when people get up when the credits to a Marvel movies starts playing. Every MCU movie has a end credit scene and the majority even have two. The end credits usually have one really funny one and the other is a teaser or a hint for the next Marvel movie. Don’t skip the end credits because you’re really missing out. You already sat and watched the movie for two hours and you might as well wait five more minutes for the last couple of scenes.

And finally, if you do nothing else on this list do this: REWATCH INFINITY WAR!!!

Endgame is packed full of characters, story lines and deaths. If you haven’t seen or have only watched Infinity War once, you’re going to be completely lost when you see Endgame. I bet even if you think you have a good memory, you are going to forget the little things that happened in between on the action scenes and death. Infinity War is on Netflix so you have no excuse not to watch it again.

Endgame is going to be one of the best Marvel movies, and, just a heads up, spoilers have been posted online, so scroll though social media with caution. Also, don’t be that jerk who yells spoilers down the hallway. You’re not funny… just don’t.

Enjoy the movie, or what’s more likely, you’re are going to be traumatized because all of your favorite characters have died. Get some good seats and bring tissues and remember:

Endgame comes out April 26.
