Captain Marvel came out last week and I knew it was only a matter of time before we would see marketing for Avengers: Endgame begin to ramp up. Well, this morning, Marvel Studios finally released an official trailer for Endgame and I am losing my mind. Here it is.
I’m trying not to cry whenever I see this trailer. What manages to always get to my emotions is the first section of the trailer that shows Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor’s evolution from their respective first films to their story now. These characters have come so far and honestly, it’s emotional seeing these characters in this tragic state.
But there’s also something so rewarding about this trailer as well.
Yes, these heroes have faced tragedy and have been inflicted a terrible defeat at the hands (or gauntlet) of Thanos but as all heroes do they won’t quit. They will avenge the galaxy and when Thanos sees them again he will meet face a force unlike any he’s met before. That’s enough to make anyone pump their fist in the air with excitement for The Avengers.
Being an African-American in the United States, Driving Miss Daisy is a film that whether you watch it or not, you know the movie’s premise, but not in a good way. For years I’ve heard about this movie by prominent African-Americans who have painted a rather grim picture of a Best Picture-winning film that was apparently, in their views, semi-racist.
And judging by the poster, they weren’t wrong. I mean, a movie about a black man carting around an old white lady around during a time of America when black peoples’ rights were practically nonexistent?

My fanfiction adventure focusing on a trio of stormtroopers has come to an end and that means a new story will arrive. Valkyrie, being my favorite Marvel heroine, fascinates me in so many different ways. She’s tough-skinned, she’s powerful, she has a great personality, but beneath that hardened exterior is a vulnerable woman who has experienced trauma and tragedy. It’s female characters like her that are the most fun to write about (that’s why I love writing stories about Qi’ra) and that’s why for the three weeks I will share two shorter stories featuring Valkyrie.
The first is called That Night; it’s a story that takes place the night before Valkyrie meets Thor on Sakaar in Thor: Ragnarok. It’s a bit of a love story but for Valkyrie, things are never that simple.
The second story is Valkyrie: The Kings of Asgard? It immediately follows the events of Avengers: Endgame when Valkyrie is made the King of Asgard but of course she is met with opposition. What challenges will she face and can she overcome them? We shall see.
I’m really excited to share these two stories and I hope you enjoy.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
