My favorite fandom right now is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hands down. Want to see me geek about something? Just mention one of the Avengers or an MCU movie title and I’m off to the races with information for you. You know the type. Ahem. So imagine the excitement around here when I found out I was heading the LA for the Avengers: Endgame Red Carpet Premiere as press. Sure I had to pay my own way- but this is why frequent flier points exist! And yep: it was totally worth the investment in this trip. I got to experience the Avengers: Endgame Premiere Red Carpet Experience and I want YOU to see what it was like. Come walk the red carpet with me!
Walking a red carpet is this fangirls DREAM come true- and walking one at a Marvel movie is easily my most favorite experience ever.
It’s just a little surreal and super, super cool for the average movie fan to experience.
Every time something special like this comes into my life, I say out loud, “How DID this happen, exactly?!”. I definitely feel all the hashtag blessed when it comes to experiences like this.
And last night was absolutely no different.
I announced last week that I was heading to Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame red carpet premiere in LA. Here’s what we saw, experienced, and fangirled out a bit during the event!
Walk the Red Carpet | Avengers: Endgame Premiere Experience
We arrived at our designated time, picked up the tickets at Will Call, and started freaking out just a little bit.
My previous experiences were in Hollywood itself- on Hollywood Boulevard at the El Capitan Theatre.
Which is a super cool place to see a movie- any movie- much less a world premiere. Especially if you are into the whole Hollywood history thing like I am!
Where Was the Avengers: Endgame Red Carpet?
This red carpet, however, was different. We found ourselves navigating the Los Angeles Convention Center- and boy is it HUGE.
The movie was scheduled to start at 6 PM and we were asked to be there by 5 PM.
We didn’t enter through the front doors like the stars, which I thought was going to be disappointing. And it kinda was only because one of my good friends was outside cosplaying as Black Widow- and I wanted to see her!
Our badges were held back in Will Call, so we had to head around the building to pick those up.
But other than that, I have zero complaints on this night. Okay: my feet HURT but that’s because I went for shoes I had no business wearing for more than 3 hours.
That’s on me.
But so cute!
What We Saw At the Avengers: Endgame Red Carpet
They had the stars and press positioned in a circle out front. We found a good spot to see the celebrities as they exited the carpet and headed into the theater.
Many stopped for a picture against the backdrop and were easy to approach and chat for a few minutes.
I loved the colors and the music and the whole vibe of this red carpet. My previous experiences were rather rushed with security constantly telling us to move along.
But this one was totally different and we were allowed to kind hang in our area and wait for the stars to come by.
And right off the bat, we got to see pretty much the entire Agents of SHIELD cast– which was my big hope for this carpet!
Who We Saw at The Avengers: Endgame Red Carpet
My first selfie of the night was one of the Russo Brothers- I mean, go big or go home!
Joe Russo was with his entire family and was so generous to take a few minutes for pictures with us fans as well.
After Mr. Russo, the Agents started leaving the media area and yeah, I kinda freaked for a minute.
Be cool, it’s just an ordinary day.
NO IT’S NOT! Agent Coulson, aka Clark Gregg, aka… pretty much my most favorite character in the MCU.
Director Al “Mack” McKenzie, aka Henry Simmons.
I think he wins the award for nicest agent EVER. He stopped and chatted a bit about the show and has us even more pumped for Season 6 starting on May 10.
Chloe Bennett was a stunner in this orange dress! And in person, she was so delicate and beautiful and I couldn’t stop staring at her.
Which was creepy and weird so it was still nice that she took the pic with me!
She plays Daisy Johnson or Quake on the show.
And then Queen Melinda May- I mean, Agent May- walked in.
We legit swooned I think. And she called us the ladies in red and now I’m dead because Ming-Na Wen- Mulan, Agent Melinda May- talked to me.
A few minutes later I found myself standing next to Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus.
Their appearance in our area was definitely one that got everyone excited- and they took selfie after selfie with the fans.
They had security with them and could have blown through us- but they didn’t and it was so lovely for those of us waiting on the carpet!
More Stars At The Avengers: Endgame Premiere
The Avengers: Endgame Afterparty
We watched the movie (sooo much more to come on this later!) and then headed right into the afterparty.
Since it was held in the same place as the movie, it was so easy to move from one place to the other.
I loved this so much!
Great food, great music, and so many of the stars of the movie, Marvel Studios and Disney Studios were there.
Because they were all trying to eat and drink after what I’m sure was a long day, I didn’t want to bug them- so I pretty much just observed the whole thing.
I did take some video if you want to see what happens at a Marvel afterparty!
Hope you all have your Endgame tickets!
