For a long while I couldn’t figure out which moments in Avengers: Infinity War I loved the most because there are so many incredibly AWESOME parts in this movie that it’s hard to decide. But after seeing this film over ten times now I feel that I finally have distinguished the moments that make the happiest in this superb superhero flick. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!
1. Iron Man vs. Thanos
Tony Stark has feared the arrival of Thanos for years. He’s gone through PTSD after the Battle of New York, he made Ultron because he wanted to create a defense mechanism that would help protect the world from Thanos’s eventual arrival, and finally, in Infinity War, these two characters that have known of each other from across the cosmos have themselves a one-on-one duel. It’s awesome!
Iron Man gets in quite a few licks with that incredible nanotech suit of his but at the end of the day Thanos is truly the most powerful villain in the universe and that becomes quickly obvious as he defeats Tony. This scene makes me so happy every time I watch it because to see these two goliaths on opposite sides fight each other is pretty cool indeed.
2. Thor Saves The Day
One of the most feel-good moments in the movie (there are many) is when Thor arrives in Wakanda to kick some alien butt. Between the iconic Avengers theme and Thor’s awesome new axe this part makes me so ridiculously happy I can’t help but cheer every time I see it. I LOVE THOR!!!!!
3. “She’s not alone.”
There has been a relieving increase of Marvel superheroines in the MCU over the years but rarely do we get to see these awesome women work together in a fight. During the Wakanda sequence Wanda Maximoff is attacked by one of Thanos’s children, Proxima Midnight. Proxima boasts that Vision will die alone, as will she, and that’s when you hear Black Widow say, “She’s not alone.”
The camera zooms upward and we see not just Black Widow but Okoye too ready to fight. Not only is it my two favorite heroines in the MCU coming together as a dynamic duo that makes this part so ridiculously awesome but it is the total girl power moment. Proxima is this awesome and really tough female warrior. And Black Widow, Okoye, and Wanda are there to fight her. There’s no men in sight. How cool is that? I hope we get to see more team-ups between Black Widow and Okoye in Avengers 4 because they are a fantastic duo.
4. Thor Makes His Axe
I’ve seen some cool stuff in my time watching movies but this is undoubtedly one of the most awe-inspiring scenes I have ever witnessed. First of all, to see how powerful Thor is pretty incredible. Secondly, the Nidavellir sequence is just a creatively fascinating portion of the movie that makes me really, really happy. And third, the music at this part will put chillbumps on your chillbumps. This is easily one of the coolest moments in the MCU so far.
5. “Wakanda forever!”
The world of Wakanda and its inhabitants had already been established as an awesome place through Black Panther and so to see these characters and this massive Wakandan army is already impressive enough as it is. And then you’ve got the king himself, Black Panther, leading his people to war. It’s like something out of The Lord of the Rings playbook, except with superheroes. How awesome does that sound?
When King T’Challa yells, “Wakanda forever!” I say it along with him nearly every time because it’s that awesome of a moment in the movie. Even though he supposedly died due to the Infinity snap (*sniffle*) I can’t wait to see him return to his heroic ways in Avengers 4.
So yeah, these are the five moments in the movie that take my happiness to other levels. There are many other scenes that are downright incredible in this film but these take the cake. And to think that the next Avengers film is going to be better? Oh my gosh, it’s going to be 100% amazing.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
