An ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Revelation

Even months after the highly-anticipated release of Avengers: Infinity War I’m still discovering new things. The latest revelation I obtained from my most recent viewing of the film is that War Machine and Iron Man, for the first time in the MCU, are never together in the movie.

Colonel Rhodes/War Machine was still on Earth and stood alongside Captain America in the fight against Thanos.

And Tony Stark/Iron Man was preoccupied in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy waiting for Thanos’s imminent arrival.

Avengers: Infinity War brought a lot of changes to the MCU–some more subtle than others–but it will be very interesting to see how Tony and Rhodes’ friendship will be after the nightmarish Infinity Snap. (I’m sure they will be even closer.)

Thanos may have won with the superheroes fractured and all over the place but when they inevitably unite and fight him all at once it is undoubtedly going to be the greatest battle in the MCU so far. (I’m. SO. EXCITED!!!)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Heimdall Is The Unsung Hero of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

I still haven’t gotten over the fact that Avengers: Infinity War was such an amazing movie. After my most recent viewing I realized something that was rather obvious but I didn’t think of until now. If it weren’t for Heimdall sending Hulk to Doctor Strange things would’ve been a LOT worse.

Tony Stark would’ve been hanging out with Pepper completely oblivious to the fact that Thanos would be arriving to end life as he knew it.

Bruce Banner wouldn’t have called Captain America which means he and his friends wouldn’t have saved Vision and Wanda from the Thanos’s minions which means that Wanda Maximoff would’ve probably perished and Vision’s stone would’ve been taken then.

And Doctor Strange would’ve still been captured by The Maw but he wouldn’t have had Iron Man and Spider-Man to rescue him which means…well, it wouldn’t have been pretty.

All in all, if you think Avengers: Infinity War is depressing without Heimdall’s aid at the beginning of the movie things could’ve been a LOT worse.

I thank you for reading my simple observation and I hope you have a great day.

Who’s Your Favorite Groot?

Groot is one of the most unique characters in the MCU for his tree-like form and his simple “I am Groot” vocabulary. When I first saw him I didn’t know what to make of the tree hero but now I can’t imagine the Marvel Cinematic Universe without him. So, on this exciting week of Who’s Your Favorite it’s all about the Groot. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Classic Groot

When Groot first came onto the Marvel scene he immediately attracted the love of most fans with his Chewbacca-esque personality and role within the Guardians of the Galaxy. He was sweet, at times disturbingly violent despite his benevolent disposition, but most importantly, he was as heroic as any hero has ever been.

He sacrificed his life to save his friends and it honestly is one of the bravest moments from any hero in the MCU. Now every time I watch that moment when he says to Rocket, “We are Groot” I get a little teary because he was so cool.

I Am Groot. Translated: RIP Classic Groot.

Ranking the Marvel Villains: From Worst to Best

The last time I wrote this post was in March of this year which was a full month before Avengers: Infinity War came out. Now, with the Marvel year over and a few new villains under the franchise’s belt it’s time to update this ranking.

20. Malekith

Malekith is still the worst villain in Marvel.

19. Ronan the Accuser

While Guardians of the Galaxy will always remain as one of my favorite Marvel films Ronan is just…corny.

18. Yellow Jacket

I like Yellow Jacket’s suit, I don’t like the man within the suit. He was way too cliché and that can be a problem.

If It Weren’t for Loki Thanos’s Infinity Stone Quest Wouldn’t Have Happened

The arrival of Thanos has been building since The Avengers introduced him in its first end-credits scene and he finally fully arrived in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. His quest to retrieve all six Infinity Stones was the main basis of Infinity War‘s story and to everyone’s great horror he actually achieved his goal, wiping out half of all existence in the process. But how did this happen? What steps did he take to committing this horrific deed? And who unknowingly aided him in this genocidal quest? Loki, that’s who. Let me tell you why.

Before I get to the events of Avengers: Infinity War let’s look back at Thor: The Dark World. While this movie is clearly one of the worst installments in the Marvel franchise it does play a key part in Thor and Loki’s relationship as it shows the brothers become allies truly for the first time in the MCU.

Loki ends up “dying” and that’s when this revelation begins. When Loki “died” and assumed the throne in the form of Odin that was supposedly four years before the events of Thor: Ragnarok. In those years Asgard was leaderless and the nine realms were thrown into chaos while Loki sat around looking at plays and enjoying life.

Now that’s where this revelation introduces Etri the Dwarf.

An IMAX Gift from Marvel

This Labor Day was one of the best I’ve had in recent memory. Marvel celebrated their ten-year anniversary by releasing all twenty Marvel films back into select IMAX theaters for us to enjoy one more time. So, naturally, I wanted to see the most epic installment in the franchise again; Avengers: Infinity War. And boy was it epic.

I’ve seen a lot of awesome movies that have blown me away in the movie theaters but I’ve never seen a film, especially a superhero movie, quite like Avengers: Infinity War. A lot of times movies are really good or entertaining but rarely do you see a film dabble fearlessly into the epic pool. Infinity War doesn’t hesitate to be as possibly good as it can be.

I watched the movie for only the second time in IMAX last night and I was blown away yet again. And I’ve watched the movie at least ten times at home since I owned it on Blu-Ray! There’s something magical and kind of unforgettable however about sitting in a dark theater and watching Thanos summon comets from a moon in IMAX.

The sound effects are SO loud, your seat is rumbling, the music is absolutely incredible, basically the movie is off the chain. This is the first Marvel film that I just can’t seem to get enough of.

Maybe it’s because it has all of my favorite heroes in it. Maybe because it’s, to me, clearly one of the funniest installments in the franchise. Or maybe because it’s just a really, really good movie.

Whatever the case, to think that Avengers 4 is probably going to be even better is just an astonishing thought and I’m so glad I have less than a year until I see it.
