From cheering to ugly-crying, Avengers: Endgame delivers a gut-punch of emotions and we’re breaking down the most touching moments!

Spoiler Alert: What follows are huge, massive Avengers: Endgame spoilers. If you have not seen the movie, leave now. No, seriously, you’ll ruin the entire movie for yourself if you read on…

Don’t worry, we’re not about to make you ugly cry with all of the heartbreaking moments in the movie. Okay, we’re lying. Some tears are definitely on the way, it’s, to quote Thanos, inevitable. However, there are other emotional moments in the movie that aren’t sad at all, because emotional, while most commonly linked to sadness, can also mean uplifting and fun. And, despite the heartache, there are definitely plenty of laughs in Endgame.

Below, we’re breaking down 20 emotional moments in Avengers: Endgame. These are not in the order of least to most emotional, but in the order they happen in the movie. Or, at least, the order I remember them happening.

Once again — Spoiler alert! 

#1 Clint Barton’s family

Straight away, Avengers: Endgame kicks off with gasps of sadness. The first scene we see is Barton at home with his family. He’s still on house arrest after the events in Captain America: Civil War, but Barton is not complaining! The Avenger seems to be taking this as a vacation and loving the time he is spending with his wife and three kids.

Barton is teaching his oldest to shoot an arrow and, by the looks of it, she’s already a pro! We’ve got a mini Hawkeye here, ladies and gentlemen! Clearly, this is taking place before Thanos snaps his ugly, purple fingers, which brings us back to the emotional moment.

As soon as Barton turns around, his family disappears. All four of them. Heartbreaking! The confusion and pain Barton must have gone through brings tears to our eyes. How does one even deal with this? Well, probably not the way Barton ends up coping with it, but more on that later.
