Yes people, there will be spoilers. Duh!
After seeing Avengers: EndGame twice in one day I can say I’m ready for a third viewing. EndGame was filled with so much emotion. The death of Black Widow and Tony Stark… I knew someone was going to be sacrificed when Widow and Ronin went to retrieve Soul stone. But death aside, Captain America was the MVP of EndGame. Between his mirror match, being worthy, and squaring off with Thanos I can watch those scenes all day long. His ending and passing the shield to Sam was perfect. One expectation I was waiting on was seeing Pepper Potts suit up and become Rescue. I always enjoyed her in the comics when she put that suit of armor on.
The battle at the end when all the portals opened would have been a great opportunity for Wolverine to walk out and fight alongside the Avengers. One scene that hit me right in the feels was Thor speaking to his mother, if I had one more chance to speak to mine, I would… Oh! and overweight Thor, I’m down with that. Because I got myself a Thor body as well. Karen Gillan got a bigger part for starring in EndGame and I’m proud of her, she cut her teeth in Doctor Who and babyface Nebula is fine by me.
So, do you think Disney will rerelease all the MCU movies with a new edit and edit in all the time travel scenes into said films? They better be loaded with complete new extras or commentaries because I’m not buying these movies again.
Captain Marvel was good I’m glad she didn’t get much screen time. Opening and ending was about right for her. And with Brie Larson getting heat for her comments, might not be long before she’s dropped from the MCU… At one time it was rumored that Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) was going to have a role in EndGame, I was hyped for that news and thought she was going to be in it until I didn’t see her in the film. Looked it and come to find out it was a rumor.
Out of the whole MCU Civil War is my number one and EndGame came close to knocking it off. I love the airport scene in Civil War and the battle in EndGame rivals it, but I been waiting on Stark-Rogers to fight ever since I read Civil War years ago and that’s why it’s still holds up to me. Call it a emotional attachment, nostalgia, call it whatever you want. Woo! Nothing can touch that airport clash of heroes.
I been hearing people complaining about how there wasn’t a mid or end credits scene. The story is over people, this ten-eleven year story had a conclusion and there shouldn’t be a scene to setup something new. You’ll get your post credit scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home… maybe. Just enjoy the movie for what it is.
With all that being said! I enjoyed every minute of the movie and hope in the future I can see these characters again in a supporting role when it’s time for the New Avengers to take the spotlight… It all started with me sitting in a theater in 2008 watching Iron Man and ending it the same way I started, sitting in a theater. Massive.
This week we’re going to jail. Well technically a juvenile detention center. But we watch as some boys cause chaos in Scum. Then we hang with Sean Penn as we beat some people with some sodas in Bad Boys. After that we chat about The Raid, the new Pet Semetary (spoilers), and finally Golden Girls. Yes for real.
We’re having a few bad nights. First up is a trip to the mall in Night Of The Comet. After that we start talking about slugs in Night Of The Creeps but we end up talking about Night Of The Creeps, Monster Squad, and Slither. Also we chat about Michael Bay movies, the new Disney Streaming Service, Shazam, and Dark Side Of The Ring.
This week we’re taking a look at some crazy Asian movies. First we head to Japan and try to make sense out of Ichi The Killer. Then we hop over to South Korea and get kidnapped for 15 years as we experience Oldboy. After that we chat about US, Shazam, and talk about this season of the Walking Dead.
It’s hunting season as we check out two movies that explore the deadliest beast on earth. Man. First off we’re kidnapped in our daisy dukes and forced to kill mercenaries in Deadly Prey. Then Gary Busey and Rutger Hauer take us to a cabin in the mountains to see if we can be Surviving The Game. After that we talk about Critters: The New Binge, Planet Of The Apes, and at the end of the show give a spoilerific review of Captain Marvel.
As of writing this Avengers: EndGame hasn’t come out yet but I do have a few theories, if you will… Copy and Paste writers have said, someone will die in EndGame some say Stark and others say Captain America. If Stark didn’t die in Infinity War he’s not going anywhere. As for Capt. I do like the theory of him going back to his own timeline. Maybe then we can see a sequel to The First Avenger, but! I still want that Bucky-Capt team up movie. I’m guessing Thanos will be facing off against Captain Marvel, should be a good fight but I hope the prelude has the Avengers we know and love take on Thanos one more time before Captain Marvel jumps in to save the day.
I know that time travel will be a big part of EndGame but I don’t know what for. Are they going back to stop Thanos before getting any Infinity Stones or going back to get their fallen friends to help defeat Thanos and army? So many questions… Also I hope Deadpool isn’t in this film, Deadpool fans are like CM Punk fans, take that as you will. Hugh Jackman has said he’s done with Wolverine but I don’t think he is maybe just maybe he finds a way into EndGame.
Also, if Marvel wants to reboot the MCU Civil War II would be the perfect story. Make Carol Danvers heel. Hawkeye kills the Hulk, Captain America could be working for Hydra and Stark trying to keep everyone together… And Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is worth watching, sure the first couple seasons are rough but season three is where it gets good.
There you have it 10 Years of the MCU through my eyes. Now I’ll leave you with my Top Five MCU films.
When I’m ask what is my favorite MCU movie I always say, Captain America: Civil War. The Civil War storyline I hold in high regards because when I got back into reading comics I was thrown into the Civil War story and loved everything about it. Captain America vs Iron Man on the big screen was like WrestleMania. And out of every MCU film Civil War feels like a comic book come to life.
I was surprised how much I liked Doctor Strange the character was portrayed very well and kept to the comic material… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a disappointment and didn’t hold up to the first film. The film had Kurt Russell in it and it was still bad. I don’t have high hopes for Volume 3.
Send the hate mail to Wolford because I hated Spider-Man: Homecoming… I think Tom Holland is a bit to young to play the Web Slinger. Sure not rehashing the Uncle Ben story was a nice change but I’m a Andrew Garfield guy. His appearance in Civil War was good, like Ant-Man put him with a team of heroes and I’m fine with it.
Thor: Ragnarok has grown on me over time, my first thought was it’s cartoonish but I grew to like it after each viewing. Comedy Thor is a good change, if you will.
I skipped Black Panther completely. I was told how good it was and I needed to see it but it was just another filler movie for me. But I did finally buy the Blu and it’s a solid film, lots of action and fight scenes. Some say it’s the live action Lion King but I digress.
Avengers: Infinity War… The only film I’ve seen sitting in the front row of a theater because every other seat was nWo Sold Out! Being that close I’ve missed a lot of stuff, after a while your neck starts to hurt looking up so much. But after buying the Blu it was an okay Avengers film, I could’ve done without all the Gamora backstory but Red Skull came back, that was Massive!
Ant-Man and the Wasp, no thanks. And now that leads me to Captain Marvel or as I said when buying the tickets, one for Ms. Marvel please. This film was set in the nineties it was kinda overkill. Don’t get me wrong hearing Nirvana on the screen got my pumped, but that NIN shirt kinda cringey. Captain Marvel was okay, would I see it again? Not for a very long time. It had decent action and humor. But I didn’t take anything away from seeing it. And having the Skrull army being a babyface killed any chance of a Secret Invasion movie. From what I can remember both Kree and Skrull are heels.
So… If you made it this far I’m not done yet.
