The excitement around "Avengers: Endgame" evaporated into the thin air as a sense of an ending dawned upon the Marvel fans after the franchise veterans, Robert Downey Jr and Jeremy Renner, greeted them at an event here and reminisced about their decade spent making superhero films.

Actor Brie Larson, the newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), also soaked in the fan mania, striking the famous Korean heart sign with her fingers and shouting "I love you" to the crowd.

The upcoming film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, completes the storyline of 22 films as Avengers, an ensemble of MCU superheroes, unite to fight supervillain Thanos who has wiped out half of the universe's population, including some of their own, with the snap of his fingers.

Though there is a strict veil of secrecy around the film, "Endgame" might mark the departure of a host of superheroes, including Downey Jr's Iron Man and actor Chris Evans' Captain America, from the MCU fold.

The film's cast and the studio have both time and again declined to confirm or deny the same. Loudest of the cheers were reserved for Downey Jr as he made a grand entry to the stage, striking his trademark Iron Man pose at the Jangchung Arena on Monday night.

The actor, known for his humorous one-liners, seemed emotional with the outpouring of love from the admirers, who chanted his name at every opportunity.

Some had even donned the heavy metallic Iron Man suit while others were spotted with messages of love, posters and photographs.

Downey Jr was all hearts as he recalled his first trip to the city and how being a superhero on screen changed his life.

Asked about his plans on the day of "Endgame" release, he promised Korean fans to visit theatres in disguise and steal their popcorns.

"Avengers: Endgame" releases on April 26 in India but fans in Korea will get to see it on April 24.
