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

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.

There have been twenty movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far but at one time all we knew of these films were their exciting or somewhat disappointing trailers. Trailers tell you everything about a movie’s quality and that’s why I’m ranking them. But because there are, well, twenty trailers to rank I’m breaking it up into a two-day series. Enjoy!
20. The Incredible Hulk
Like The Incredible Hulk this is clearly the worst trailer of them all. Maybe I’m being a little biased because I know the movie isn’t that good but still, it’s kind of lame. It could’ve been a good movie but unfortunately it isn’t.
19. Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America: The First Avenger is a boring origin story, pure and simple. The story is well told but the movie is poorly made. In the hands of the Russo Brothers it might have been a completely different film but in those days Marvel hadn’t entirely gotten their footing yet. It definitely is #19 in my opinion.

I haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War in months so imagine my excitement when I bought and watched it last night in the comfort of my house. It’s always interesting watching movies for the first at home on the small screen because it’s different than watching the film in a giant, loud movie theater. The sound may not be as good or the CGI might look terrible. Or maybe the movie isn’t as good as you remembered it to be because there isn’t any IMAX to make the film decent.
Well, I can tell you that it was an amazing experience watching it at home. For months I have watched the Marvel movies such as Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok, and Doctor Strange with the excitement that these individual stories all leads to Infinity War. I watched Ant-Man and the Wasp several weeks ago and its constant levity helped tone down that ultra serious tone Infinity War had blanketed over the entire series. But after seeing it again last night I realized just how incredible Infinity War is.

For the past five years there have been five DC films and thirteen! Marvel films (ten of the thirteen Marvel films I have enjoyed immensely.) But it’s not the fact that Marvel has twenty and counting movies under their belt that makes them a better franchise all around but DC seems to willingly want to keep their franchise less liked by constantly cranking out mediocre superhero movies. I mean, let’s think about the comparisons of the two superhero franchises.
Marvel’s First Movie: Iron Man
Iron Man came out ten years ago and, for the most part, it was a good movie. Yeah it’s now available for free on subscription services like Hulu and Amazon Prime but that’s not because it’s essentially a bad movie. It’s just old. A movie featuring a character like Tony Stark’s Iron Man could’ve easily been a flop but with the genius casting of Robert Downey Jr. he managed to make the movie not only enjoyable but a global success.
Marvel’s first movie was a home run and an exciting precursor for what was to come.
DC’s First Movie: Man of Steel
Man of Steel, on the other hand, was an entirely different story. This is the first movie that the new DC universe debuted to the world and it was not getting the excited buzz that Iron Man had obtained five years before.
So, what’s the difference between these two debut films? Why did Iron Man work where Man of Steel failed? Well, first off, Iron Man was a better executed movie. It conveyed a story that people could comprehend and when you have a character who’s as lovable as Tony Stark you can’t help but enjoy the movie more. I hadn’t even seen Iron Man and Iron Man 2 all the way through as a child and he had become my favorite superhero because he was that cool.
With Man of Steel I didn’t get that same love for Superman as I did for Iron Man. I enjoyed the movie but I didn’t love the superhero. I think that’s the difference. If Henry Cavill could’ve made Clark Kent as lovable as Robert Downey Jr. did with Tony Stark people would’ve probably met the movie with more praise than criticism.
