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
