Is the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Too Lackadaisical For Comfort?

I’ve watched a lot of trailers in my time. Some have been unforgettably awesome. Some have been downright forgettable. One of the best trailers I have ever laid my eyes on, however, was the Avengers: Infinity War teaser. It was on another level of epic. I have watched that trailer at least twenty times and every time I have ever seen I am covered in chills and utterly blown away by the trailer’s amazing tone. It presented the clear idea that Infinity War would be the climactic movie that we had been waiting six years for and I had no doubt that it was going to be the franchise’s most enjoyable installment. And it was.

Last Friday when the Avengers: Endgame dropped I screamed. I was that excited. For months I had waited and waited, hoping that at least the title would be dropped, and yet Marvel didn’t give us anything. Rumors kept appearing that the trailer was coming but as the weeks went by and the rumors continued turning up false I started not to care anymore.

When the trailer arrived I watched it with a wide-eyed carefulness, clinging to every word, every shot with the passion of someone desperate to get information from the new movie. To get a glimpse of what to expect. At the end of the two minutes, however, I found myself flabbergasted by how underwhelming the trailer turned out to be. I began to think that it was a teaser for the real trailer but then when I discovered that it was the official trailer I was at a loss of words.

My Fun Weekly Twitter Poll Has Gone Live!

Another seven days have gone by and that means it’s time for another weekly Twitter poll. Today I’m straying from the topic of Star Wars and focusing on another, more pressing subject; the Avengers: Endgame trailer. The highly-anticipated teaser has already broken records, becoming the first film to ever get 289 million! views in a single day. And so, because it was such a hit last Friday I couldn’t help but make it the subject of my weekly Twitter poll. Here’s the tweet.

Feel free to help contribute to the conversation if you’d like. Of course, I can’t vote (because I made the poll) but if I could I would vote Kind of Excited. The trailer had its exciting moments but overall it was a lot less impressive than I’d imagine it to be.

And if you need to be reminded about the trailer here it is.

I thank you for reading (and potentially contributing) and I hope you have a beautiful day.

The Cast of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Gets A Little Interesting

With the trailer dropping for Avengers: Endgame last week the film’s imminent arrival truly feels concrete and while there wasn’t much to get excited about from the surprisingly underwhelming teaser it looks like teases for the film’s storyline can be found elsewhere; in the casting list.

SPOILER ALERT AHEAD! These new entries in the cast are heavy spoilers for the movie so if you’d rather stay in the dark I suggest you stop reading now. Thank you for heeding this warning. 🙂

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine?

The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.

Mantis

Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable and she is an asset to the team.

Nebula

Nebula hasn’t had the easiest journey but she has found a way to endure. She fought by Ronan’s side in Guardians of the Galaxy and after being reunited with her beloved sister she turned down a different path; one of revenge and redemption. How her journey will end, no one knows, but she will play an integral role in the fight against Thanos.

Breathe, Just Breathe, the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Just Dropped!

Remember the other day when I posted about a rumor that the Avengers 4 trailer was going to drop on Wednesday and then it didn’t? Well, I did share with you all that there were also rumors that it would drop today on this glorious Friday but, of course, they were merely that; rumors. Well, it seems that finally the rumors have come true and the Avengers (Endgame) trailer is here. So, hold yourself together, take a deep breath, here it is.

Okay, okay, okay. Marvel is awesome and this is why. They gave us a teaser and yes, it was a teaser. They know we are clinging to every word, every shot, so they gave us abso-lute-ly nothing! I love it! But, because there is legitimate footage before me, here are the five things that stood out to me the most in the trailer.

1. Tony Stark Is In a Desperate Situation

Iron Man is in desperate need of aid as he floats through space deprived of food and water. Tony obviously feels that his end is imminent, reminding us of the direness of the situation that we were left with at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War. He’s seen recording a message to Pepper just in case she somehow gets it, sticking to the theme that has remained throughout the franchise of Tony’s immense love for her.

‘Black Panther’ Is Nominated for the Golden Globes!

Black Panther made history earliest this year as it broke box-office records left and right, making just over $1.3 billion dollars, and wowing moviegoers around the world. Most superhero movies aren’t usually considered for the Oscar race but this film, set with a story that was not only well written but resonated heavily with the theme of race, which is a huge topic these days, has garnered the praise, and attention, of many. When Bob Iger decided earlier this year to place Black Panther up for consideration for the Oscar race I was excited but didn’t think it would amount to much.

Well, I was wrong, as the Golden Globe Nominations just dropped today and, to my great surprise and elation, it was one of the nominees. I couldn’t believe my eyes. If I’m not mistaken Black Panther is the first superhero movie ever nominated for the Best Motion Picture-Drama category. That is downright outstanding. And the movie deserves all the praise it can get.

Black Panther is easily the best written Marvel film that has ever been made (Avengers: Infinity War is still my personal favorite) and I couldn’t be happier about this news. Of course, it most likely will not win the award but the simple fact that it was recognized for its incredible storytelling is a sign that maybe Hollywood is starting to understand that superhero movies can be just as impactful and incredible as any complex or thoughtful film set to the backdrop of an “incredible true story”.

Black Panther has done the impossible; gotten a Golden Globe nomination. Next stop; Oscars. 🙂
