Turns out that the news of legendary Indian music composer AR Rahman making the Avengers: Endgame anthem is not an April Fools’ joke. The single he produced is a huge joke though.
When we pair up the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchise with an Oscar-winning music composer, we expect the results to be glorious, not horrendous. And yet that is what the general reaction of everyone is.
You can listen to AR Rahman’s newest production here (at your own risk):

I definitely appreciate this fan event and was so dying to be a part… But here i can't relate the mcu to this song.. Never felt a connection. It seems like a sports anthem

Ok this one’s a sick burn. PM Modi’s ‘Chowkidar anthem is better‘ is not the reaction any legendary music maestro should get. AR Rahman’s star ain’t shining here it seems.
It sounds like a sports anthem! 😑
A R Rahman disappoints yet again! @Sanam_Official had made a better anthem for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' than what the "Music Maestro" of India has made.#AvengersEndgame #WhateverItTakes #AvengeTheFallen #MarvelFanEvent #JoeRusso

With most people focused on how bad the song was, some fans wanted to hear more versions of it.

Not an April Fool’s Joke We Assure You
Marvel India revealed the anthem on April 1 (not an April Fools’ joke, we repeat).
Haha.. nice April Fool joke.. you got us 😂😂 Now release the actual anthem..

Long story short, AR Rahman’s Avengers: Endgame anthem was so bad that at first people thought it was an April Fools’ joke. We expected better from the Dil Se composer.
All we can say is, better luck next time, Mr Rahman.
