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.
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.

One of my first segments of Who’s Your Favorite was Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine? Well, it’s time for the male heroes’ turn and there are many of them. There are a wizard and a radioactive spider-ling. An Iron Suit-wearing-billionaire and a patriotic super soldier. A King with a catsuit of vibranium and a God of thunder. The list goes on and on. And that’s why they’re the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.
Doctor Stephen Strange wasn’t the exact superhero type. He was obnoxious, self-centered, and egotistical. Those don’t exactly seem like the traits of an Avenger. But after losing the function of his hands in a horrendous car accident he would become one of the greatest heroes in the world.
Colonel Rhodes is a soldier and so it’s no surprise that he would do anything in his power to protect those from harm. Even after a frightening injury he still was willing to suit up and face Thanos’s forces knowing there could be lethal consequences.

Love is a powerful thing. It mends hearts, brings people together, provides happiness to even the most sorrowful, and it is a beautiful thing to observe. Love stories are some of my favorite movie storylines and superhero films always provide a good love story. So, on that note, this is the topic of today’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy.
Vision and Scarlet Witch
While this romance was doomed from the beginning it still is a beautiful relationship nonetheless. Vision, an android looking for purpose and understanding in the world, found love as his relationship with Wanda Maximoff grew. And Wanda, who lost her brother in the Battle of Sokovia, was also trying to find her place among her fellow Avengers. Vision helped fill that void that she possessed and it wasn’t long before her friendship grew into something more.
It’s a shame that we weren’t able to see more with them as a couple but then again, who knows what the future holds.
T’Challa and Nakia
A simple yet perfect relationship. Nakia, as an independent woman, didn’t let her past relationship with T’Challa hold her down to remaining in Wakanda as a Wakandan housewife for the rest of her life. And that is what is so beautiful about this relationship. Their willingness to hear each other out and be there for one another when the need arises is very touching.

In 2008 Marvel began a journey that would change my view of the superhero world forever with Iron Man. We all know how dismal Marvel movies used to be (remember Daredevil?) but now, ten years after this incredible adventure began, it seems that Marvel can do no wrong.
As other franchises have tried to jump on the multiple-movie-franchise bandwagon and failed miserably (Star Wars, DC Comics, Transformers) it has become more and more apparent how incredible the MCU machine truly is.
Kevin Feige has overseen this machine since the beginning and has laced together a massive story that involves over two dozen superheroes. And what’s even more impressive is that small references that may mean nothing could lead to something very important in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There are twenty movies in the MCU so far but there are only three trilogies which belong to some of the franchise’s most important characters; Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. Their movies have spanned eight years and debuted tons of different characters that have become prominent inclusions to the overall story but which trilogy is the most fun to watch? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you all. Enjoy!
The Iron Man Trilogy
Iron Man was the first hero to debut in the MCU and his standalone films have been fun to watch. Iron Man is still heralded as one of the best superhero movies ever made but the other two haven’t had the same critical acclaim. Now, personally, my favorite film of the trilogy is Iron Man 2 for its fun story and great characters. Iron Man 3, however, feels a bit disjointed from the overall story.
At first it seems like a great movie as it features Tony’s PTSD but that storyline is forgotten in other films following Iron Man 3. And the end of Iron Man 3 makes it feel like Tony Stark’s story is finished and yet he shows up later on in Age of Ultron. It’s all so confusing.
