Will Everett Ross Make a Cameo Appearance in ‘Captain Marvel’?

A couple of days ago I watched one of my favorite superhero films, Black Panther, and one of the characters I really enjoy in the movie is Deputy Task Force Commander Everett Ross. He debuted in Captain America: Civil War with a menial role that didn’t mean much but ended up playing a major role in Black Panther which is so cool. Here was this character that I didn’t really think about and it turns out he kind of ended up being really important.

One of the moments in the movie that stuck out to me while recently viewing the film was when Shuri relays that he is an Air Force pilot. Now, I already knew this of course, but with Captain Marvel becoming the next film to look forward to, the Air Force has suddenly become a lot more important.

Captain Marvel is set in the 90s’ so does that mean we may potentially see a younger version of Everett Ross as an Air Force pilot? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

I think it would be a fantastic cameo and would really shine an even greater light on this somewhat important character.

What do you think? Should Everett Ross have a surprise cameo appearance in Captain Marvel? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

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

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

mv5bmjexnzkxmjmzmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwodkxotmymje-_v1_-1.jpg

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.

What’s Your Favorite Marvel Movie?

Ten years, twenty movies, over two dozen characters, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t even close to coming to an end. It’s kind of incredible! Over the years the MCU has gotten better and better at creating films that are just downright awesome and now I honestly can’t imagine a year without a Marvel movie. And now as another week has passed Who’s Your Favorite is back with a new question; What’s Your Favorite Marvel Movie? Here are all of the Marvel films so far.

Iron Man

This is the film that started it all and that alone makes it one of the greatest Marvel films ever made.

The Incredible Hulk

portrait_incredible18

The Incredible Hulk was the second Marvel movie to appear in the MCU and while it hasn’t been met with the highest praise it is still an important piece to the overall puzzle of the story.

Iron Man 2

portrait_incredible17

With the booming success of Iron Man people expected Iron Man 2 to be a raging success. While some claim it to be a disappointing sequel I love it because it’s the film that replaced Terence Howard’s Rhodey with Don Cheadle (which was SO much better) and it introduced Black Widow! That’s pretty awesome.

Thor

Thor is, well, Thor’s origin story and while this is one of the few films that I’m still unfamiliar with it plays a big role in Thor’s overall story leading all the way to where he is now with the events of Infinity War. It’s kind of an awesome movie.

Captain America: The First Avenger

portrait_incredible15

Captain America is one of the MCU’s earliest characters and this film is where his story began. It’s amazing to see how far he has come.

The Avengers

portrait_incredible14

Before The Avengers there had never been a film that featured this many superheroes in one movie. Not only was it a groundbreaking achievement to bring so many beloved characters together in one film but it was really good too. It was the first superhero movie to make over a $1 billion at the box office and that isn’t a surprise. This movie is awesome.

Iron Man 3

portrait_incredible13

Iron Man 3 is an emotional film for Tony Stark. He battles PTSD as well as demons from his past that have arrived to antagonize him in the now. We also see his battle with his role as Iron Man. Does he want to remain an Avenger or is he ready to give up the suit and settle down with Pepper? Of course we know the answer but this movie does play an interesting role in his development moving forward.

Thor: The Dark World

portrait_incredible12

Thor: The Dark World is another one of those Marvel movies that didn’t turn out to be as great as it could’ve been but, like The Incredible Hulk, it does present an interesting portion to Thor’s evolution.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

portrait_incredible11

It’s hard to make an awesome sequel that surpasses its predecessor (well in this case it wasn’t) but The Winter Soldier clearly is one of the MCU’s best entries. It helped impact the MCU moving forward and it’s simply a great movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy

portrait_incredible10

Gaurdians of the Galaxy could’ve been absolutely ridiculous but with James Gunn’s brilliant take on these characters this movie quickly became a smash hit. It’s a shame he’s gone but, oh well, he shouldn’t have been nasty. *shrug*

Avengers: Age of Ultron

portrait_incredible9

Avengers: Age of Ultron has its flaws but at the end of the day it’s still awesome seeing new and old heroes come together to defeat a powerful enemy.

Ant-Man

portrait_incredible8

Ant-Man? Who is Ant-Man? This film quickly helped introduce us to the lesser known but really cool superhero and Paul Rudd’s rendition of the character has made him easily one of the most lovable characters in the MCU.

Captain America: Civil War

portrait_incredible7

Behind Avengers: Infinity War I’d have to say Civil War is the most heartbreaking film as we watch The Avengers fall apart before our very eyes. It’s a brilliantly told story that’ll keep you riveted until the end of the movie and that’s why it’s one of Marvel’s best entries.

Doctor Strange

portrait_incredible6

Doctor Strange could’ve easily been a flop as it stood as one of the MCU’s trippiest installments but with the brilliant casting of Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Eijofor, etc. the movie was destined to succeed. I love this movie!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

MV5BMTg2MzI1MTg3OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTU3NDA2MTI@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_.jpg

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may not have been the sequel some people wanted but it did present new challenges for the Guardians as well as some awesome new characters. And who doesn’t love Baby Groot? 🙂

Spider-Man: Homecoming

MV5BMTU4ODQzNDg0Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjQ5MTE0MjI@._V1_SY1000_SX675_AL_.jpg

Spider-Man was great in Captain America: Civil War so it’s honestly not a surprise that the movie turned out to be as good as it was.

Thor: Ragnarok

MV5BMjMyNDkzMzI1OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODcxODg5MjI@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_.jpg

Thor is an awesome character but when it came to his standalone films they just never were exactly up to par. Taika Waititi changed that after completely revamping the entire tone of Thor and it was one of the greatest decisions in the MCU.

Black Panther

MV5BMTg1MTY2MjYzNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTc4NTMwNDI@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_

Black Panther is a cultural phenomenon that has shaken the world with its brilliantly diverse cast, its powerful storytelling, and its remarkable representation of black people. Now Marvel is pushing this film for a Best Picture nomination and I can’t wait to see what happens.

Avengers: Infinity War

MV5BMjMxNjY2MDU1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzY1MTUwNTM@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_ (1).jpg

Infinity War is easily the MCU’s largest installment with twenty plus characters making an appearance and the film featuring a villain with almost invincible powers. It took ten years to reach this movie and thankfully it was totally worth it.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

antmanwaspposter.jpg

Ant-Man and the Wasp was a fantastic sequel to Ant-Man, as it kept an overall small approach to the MCU while still providing a thrilling film with new characters and challenges for the heroes. All in all, great film.

So, of these twenty films, which one is your favorite? Mine is Infinity War. Surprisingly, I enjoy it more at home than I did at the movie theaters. There aren’t a lot of films that are 100% epic but Infinity War is, in my opinion. And to see so many of my favorite heroes together in one movie is downright incredible. I. LOVE. THIS. MOVIE!!! 🙂

I can’t wait to hear which film is your favorite. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Five Best Moments in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

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

ironmanvsthanos.jpg

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.

Ranking the Marvel Trailers from Worst to Best: Part 2

It’s Day 2 of my Ranking the Marvel Trailers from Worst to Best series and I’m so excited to share with you the top ten trailers. Enjoy!

(If you missed it the first part to this series is linked here.)

10. Iron Man 2

Whoa, this is a good trailer. It shows plenty of exciting money shots without giving the viewer any idea of what the movie is about. It’s kind of amazing. And Whiplash actually presents a legitimate threat in this trailer. I like it.

9. Captain America: Civil War

I remember seeing this trailer and being a tad bit horrified. Seeing these heroes that had grown to be friends fighting each other is kind of mortifying. I’m glad the movie ended up being even better than this trailer because that shows how good it is.

My Awesome Magazine Collection

I love collecting awesome Entertainment Weekly magazines that feature covers of my favorite upcoming movies. Last time I wrote this post it was still three weeks away from The Last Jedi arriving in theaters. Since then I’ve added a few new magazines to my collection but those covers I will share at the end of the year as I accumulate more incredible Entertainment Weekly covers. So for now, I’m just reposting this post to jog down memory lane. Enjoy!

My Marvel Movie Collection

Magazine1

These issues are all in alphabetical order and date back to December 2015. Can you believe that?! So many Marvel movies have come out in that time. You’ve got first looks at Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There’s Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor and Black Panther. Oh, let me tell you a little bit about my experience when I got the Thor: Ragnarok issue.

I had seen bits and pieces of Thor: Ragnarok concept art (only of Hela) in the movie news but I had no idea of the changes that would be made to the Asgardian God of Thunder. So imagine my surprise when I get my Entertainment Weekly that week and saw Thor with his short hairdo, wielding two swords, and flanked by these two AWESOME looking women. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen with Thor and I practically exploded with excitement. It was a great day.

To revisit these issues brings me so much joy as I think about the excitement I obtained with every collection.

So out of these eight marvelous covers I broke it down to the four I like the best. Here they are.

It’s Fact: Marvel Movies Are Better With Compelling Villains

Yesterday evening I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier after not having seen it in months. I enjoyed it thoroughly of course, for it’s one of Marvel’s greatest installments in the franchise, but as I watched it I realized something. For a while now I have presented the argument that a movie can’t truly be incredible and memorable without a great villain. Take The Dark Knight for example. Many people herald it as the greatest superhero ever made not because of Batman (even though he was clearly awesome) but mainly because we remember The Joker.

Heath Ledger took the iconic Batman villain to the next level, making us believe in the cynical plans he constantly concocted and shaking us with his dark jokes about how he got his scars just before killing someone. He was, at many times, smarter than Batman and he made for a compelling antagonist that took the movie to a whole other level.

Marvel has started to figure that out over the years. Villains are Marvel’s one blaring flaw. Their constant obstacle that has become a suspected hindrance to the franchise. But of late they have tried to change that narrative by incorporating villains that are actually memorable and worth caring about in the past few years. And that’s where I come to the point of this post.
