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.

False Alarm: We Still Have To Wait for the Trailer for ‘Avengers 4’

Yesterday I wrote a post displaying a rumor that the Avengers 4 trailer would drop today. It didn’t. And now we must go another day knowing that the trailer is out there and yet Marvel doesn’t seem to want to drop it yet.

Of course, it makes total sense that it wouldn’t be released today. Captain Marvel needs her moment to shine (or glow) before we start flipping over the undoubtedly exciting contents of the Avengers 4 teaser.

But, to potentially appease your disappointment another rumor (yes, it’s a rumor) has arrived saying that the trailer will drop on Friday. This sounds much more reasonable on Marvel’s part and could very well be true. And then it could be absolute nonsense as all of the other rumors have been.

All in all, we’re getting the trailer sometime this month. It’s only a matter of when.

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

 

My Full Analysis of the ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer

As you may know the second trailer for Captain Marvel dropped the last night, wowing viewers around the world. The trailer, however, still managed to keep the movie’s overall plotline a secret while still providing us with enticing shots and awesome implications for what we should expect from the film. I appreciate that. Trailers are supposed to intrigue the moviegoer into watching the movie, not share with us the entire plotline, spoilers and all. And that’s what this trailer did in a phenomenal way.

While there wasn’t anything overly telling in the trailer I’m still going to share with my full analysis of the trailer and all of the things that stood out to me. Enjoy!

1. Nick Fury

This is just as much as Nick Fury’s origin story as Captain Marvel’s as we get to see him in his earlier stages working at S.H.I.E.L.D. I love how the trailer highlighted his naivety, a trait that usually isn’t associated with the stern, one-eyed Nick Fury that we have grown to know. Seeing a younger Nick Fury whose experience with superheroes and their frightful enemies is absent is an exciting prospect for the film and an exciting setup for Nick Fury and Captain Marvel’s potential reunion in Avengers 4.

My Reaction to the ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer: Ahh!!!

The official trailer for Captain Marvel just dropped and I am beyond excited! It looks awesome, as expected, and yet it still feels so secretive. There are many more enticing shots that make the trailer especially delightful mixed in with things we’ve already seen before but I’m telling you, I can’t wait to see this movie. To think that Captain Marvel is going to be a part of Avengers 4 is just…ah, I’m trying to process this calmly but my mind is racing!

Tomorrow I will share with you all my full analysis of the trailer but until then…*squealing*

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