Bryan and Doug sit down to chat about the newest box office juggernaut Avengers: Endgame! The review is very spoilery right off the bat so make sure you’ve watched it before listening.
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.
I’m joined by my cohosts from The Midnight Drive-In Doug and Noah to break down the culmination of 10 years of work from Marvel Studios Avengers Infinity War! Did it live up to the hype? Find out. Also this review is very spoilery so we advise not listening without seeing the movie first.
It’s here. The movie Marvel fans have been waiting for since the mid credits scene in the first Avengers movie is finally coming in May 2018. Avengers: Infinity War marks the end of what Marvel has been working towards for the last 10 years since Nick Fury waked out of the darkness and told Tony Stark he wanted to talk to him about the Avengers Initiative.
Whether you are over the superhero boom, was never into it, or are still in love with it as I am since 2000’s X-Men, you have to appreciate Marvel’s commitment to making this cinematic universe play out like it has. Rumors are we may be saying goodbye to some of our favorite heroes. My guess is that won’t happen until Avengers 4 in 2019.
Reports seem to be Marvel may forgo the serialized format for more stand alone films heading out of 2019 but I wouldn’t count on that as fact. I’m sure Marvel has plenty of surprises up their sleeve. I’m still holding on for a Slapstick/Sleepwalker crossover.
The final Avengers romp is already jam packed with heroes, villains and other talent, but to this reporter, there is ALWAYS room for some Dinklage!
You are reading that right, Variety is reporting that fan favorite Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has signed on to play an as yet un-named “Key Role” in the upcoming mega movie.
This is not the first time Dinklage has graced a Marvel movie, having played X-Men villain Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, with the X-Characters firmly in the grasp of Fox, it is safe to say that Trask will not be showing up Infinity War, and it is doubtful that Dinklage would be taking advantage of his size and playing fan favorite Canadian hero Puck (who he was rumored to be playing in DoFP).
So what do you think? Will Dinklage finally be playing a super powered character or a human this time around? Let us know below
