Which X-Men Characters Should Be Brought To The MCU?

Since Disney bought Fox my mind has been racing with the possibilities of a X-Men/Avengers crossover and even though that might not completely come to fruition I definitely think that Marvel Studios should take this opportunity to do what they did with Spider-Man and bring some awesome X-Men superheroes to the MCU. But which X-Men characters? While I don’t know much about the X-Men there are a few characters that I really do like and that I think would be very cool additions to the MCU. I’m going to list them here and I hope you enjoy!

Beast

I don’t know much about Beast but I do know this, he’s always been one of my favorite X-Men characters. His skills are very, very impressive and I think it would be really interesting to see this character become part of the MCU. I mean, can you imagine Spider-Man or Black Panther conversing with this incredibly unique looking character? It would definitely be interesting to watch. And another thing that makes this so perfect is that in certain comic books he becomes part of The Avengers so that’s just another excuse to bring him into the MCU.

Jean Grey

Jean Grey is one of the most prominent X-Men characters (I know this because even though I don’t know anything about the X-Men I know who Jean Grey is) and I think it would be rather exciting to bring her to the MCU. Now, some of her abilities are rather similar to Scarlet Witch so that might not be a great idea to bring her into the fold but I think it would still be awesome to see her fighting alongside The Avengers.

Jake Gyllenhaal Joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe

While the old era of the MCU is coming to an end a new era is arising and with it comes new characters and new villains to be explored. It was recently announced that the famed actor, Jake Gyllenhaal will be joining the MCU family as the new villain set to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 next summer. He will play the villainous role of Mysterio which, after reading up on the character, excites me a lot and perfectly matches with the story at hand considering Mysterio, in the comics, teamed up with The Tinkerer who has already made his debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

He also, in the comics, pretended to be Spider-Man and framed him for robberies and other horrible deeds like that. That could prove to be a tough obstacle for Peter Parker and definitely sounds like a greater challenge than he faced last time against The Vulture. I can’t wait to see the MCU version of this character and what he’ll mean to the story moving forward.

Does this news excite you as well and what other Spider-Man villains would you like to make an appearance in the MCU? I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments below.

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

Scarlet Witch and Vision: An Odd Couple

Okay, I have been debating this with myself since Age of Ultron but I haven’t been able to figure it out until now, thanks to Infinity War, and that’s the realization that Vision is in fact a SUPER-intelligent robot. For a while now Vision has entirely eluded me as to what I could legitimately call him. Was he a human with an incredibly intuitive brain? Was he simply a robot with the extreme likeness, personality, and feelings of a human? Or did I have to think of him as simply a Mind Stone entity, not exactly human, not exactly a robot, just a being with infinite power? Well, Infinity War has pretty much cleared up this conundrum for me and now that this question of mine has been resolved I have to admit, I’m a tad bit grossed out about it.

Bruce Banner said that Vision is basically a mega-mix of Tony Stark, Jarvis, Banner, Ultron, and the Mind Stone all wrapped into a handsome Paul Bettany gift box. That’s a little…weird. So basically Scarlet Witch is in love with the ultimate robot? Ooookay. That’s definitely a little strange.

Vision, from what I’ve learned of his involvement in the comic books, was an alien superhero and so the relationship between him and Scarlet Witch was so totally palpable. This version of the well-known Marvel romance is a bit tweaked considering that Vision is now a robot rather than a living being. I mean, does Vision even breathe? He’s a robot so does he have to?

My Experience Watching ‘Avengers: Infinity War

Oh my goodness everybody, Avengers: Infinity War is no joke! I’ve watched all of the Marvel movies and this is undoubtedly not only the best one but truly the entire culmination of the last eighteen movies. I sat in that movie theater waiting in silent anguish for the movie to start after all of the many trailers and once it did it latched on and didn’t let go literally from beginning to end. The audience was incredible. There were many laugh-out-loud (and silently funny) moments that had the audience in stitches. There were some fantastic character moments that just had the audience cheering with excitement. And then there were some legitimately heartbreaking moments that caused quite a bit of sniffling in the theater. When I walked out of that movie after its two hour and thirty-two minute long run I was stunned. I felt like a young woman who had just seen the most amazing Marvel superhero movie that she had ever seen and couldn’t believe how shocking the film’s ending was…because that’s exactly what I was. My feet were lead, my eyebrows were furrowed in stunned confusion, and my mind was racing in an utter “WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!”

As I was walking out of that movie theater I saw this super awesome display for Solo: A Star Wars Story and I just had to take a picture with it.

Yeah. It’s just me sitting in the Millennium Falcon cockpit with my Star Wars buddies. 🙂

Isn’t that an awesome display?! I’ve seen some cool displays in my time but this one takes the cake. Just imagining myself sitting in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon was an awesome experience. So then after that I went to find the Infinity War display so I can take a new movie photo and when I did I was so excited.

This is the look of someone who just came out of Avengers: Infinity War. Yeah, it was a ride.

That expression on my face isn’t disappointment. It’s the face of someone who doesn’t know what just happened. I’m telling you, the end of Infinity War is so unexpected and out of this world that usually an audience roars with applause at the end of a really good movie but this audience was mostly silent with the occasional murmur. All of us were legitimately stunned at what had just transpired.

All in all, Avengers: Infinity War will be a movie experience that I will undoubtedly remember for quite a while and it’s given Avengers 4 a very high bar to try to surpass.

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

The ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer and Poster Is Here!

So earlier today I wrote a post about an Avengers: Infinity War trailer appearing tonight during March Madness but turns out it actually came out this morning and it’s finally here. First off, here’s the poster.

MV5BMjMxNjY2MDU1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzY1MTUwNTM@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_

Pretty awesome right? Wow, there are so many characters. And here’s the trailer:

So this is what I think about the trailer. I love the teaser, the teaser is perfect for everything that it is. The music, the action, the characters, the story, everything about the teaser was impeccable and this trailer only built on that narrative.

I loved seeing more of Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy, I loved seeing Shuri make an appearance in the trailer, I finally got a glimpse at Thanos’s henchmen, and overall it was an exciting trailer but there was nothing utterly jaw dropping from it and that’s a great thing.

You can’t give viewers all of the film’s nuggets before we even see the film. That would be ridiculous and it would show that the movie isn’t worth watching. The fact that Marvel Studios provided us with a trailer that gave us tantalizing imagery without giving anything away is utterly perfect. I mean come on, the movie is coming out in exactly seven weeks. If I can’t wait until April 27 to find out what’s going to happen in this movie I obviously need to take a chill pill.

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing this trailer as much as I did and I am SO EXCITED to see this movie because it’s clearly going to be OFF THE CHAIN! And that last bit of the trailer with Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, lol, now that was perfect. I’m already liking this Spider-Man/Doctor Strange dynamic. *thumbs up.*

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

Don’t Miss the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer Tonight

Yesterday evening I was watching March Madness on CBS and out of nowhere an Avengers: Infinity War commercial popped up announcing that the world trailer premiere for the movie will be coming out tonight. Well, that was a surprise! I’m so excited about this news. As you can see on my Avengers: Infinity War countdown it’s only 42 days until the movie comes out and it’s about time for the marketing for this movie to ramp up. So, tomorrow I will undoubtedly provide you with an extensive post on how awesome the trailer undoubtedly is going to be and if you want to see it tonight tune in to March Madness on CBS.

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

This ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ News Will Blow Your Mind!

Okay, we all know that an Avengers: Infinity War trailer is just around the corner and to get us ready for the trailer premiere there have been some rather exciting developments for the movie.

First, off there’s a new promotional poster featuring Thanos and his villainous crew. Here it is.

Okay, this is already exciting enough as it is but listen to this. Here are Thanos’s four henchmen and the actors that are playing their voices.

Corvus Glaive (the creepy guy in black) is the general of Thanos’s armies and wields a pike that makes him immortal! The pike can also penetrate any surface or object. (Captain America and Black Panther, don’t get too cocky with your impenetrable vibranium.) And guess who’s voicing this character? None other than…Mark Hamil!!!! Yes, it’s true. Mark Hamill is voicing one of the villains in Avengers: Infinity War. Can this movie get any better?

The second character is Proxima Midnight (the only female on the poster)  who is the wife of General Glaive and carries a spear forged from a star by Thanos himself. (These villains sound like the real deal. Uh-oh.) And she’s being voiced by Whoopi Goldberg. Can you believe that? This movie is going to be off. The. CHAIN!!!

The third character is Ebony Maw (this is the alien by Thanos’s left arm) who is a mind manipulator. I guess he’s basically Scarlet Witch on steroids in the persuasive department. He’s voiced by Bill Nighy (I, unfortunately don’t know who that is.)

And the final henchman is named Cull Obsidian (he’s the horn faced alien in the right corner) who is basically the Hulk of Thanos’s army. He’s big, he’s brutish, and I’m pretty sure he kicks serious butt. He will be voiced by Vin Diesel.

I have to say, after hearing the descriptions of these villains, including Thanos, I am legitimately worried now. These Marvel superheroes have faced difficult antagonists before but they have never come across the likes of these powerful beings. I mean, these villains sound just as powerful, maybe even more powerful than some of the Avengers and that’s worrying me greatly. I knew there were going to be casualties in this movie but I think it’s going to be worse than I imagined. Or maybe not. I don’t have long to find out though. *thumbs up*

And finally, the biggest development for Avengers: Infinity War is this. You know how how it was supposed to come out on May 4. Well, Disney changed the dates and it’s now coming out on April 27. Yes, this is not a joke. Avengers: Infinity War is coming out a week earlier and I am bouncing-off-the-walls happy.

Paul Bettany, Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

This is a game changer and the perfect move for Disney. Ever since Solo: A Star Wars Story was announced to come out in May of this year I knew it was going to be a problem box-office wise. Having two mega-blockbuster franchises like Marvel and Star Wars have movies coming out in the same month just doesn’t sound right and I think Disney knew that.

They also probably moved the date back to avoid spoilers from the movie leaking online. You see, it was going to originally open internationally in India on April 27 but that would’ve meant there would have been a whole week for spoilers to spring from the international premiere onto the internet. And I’m sure the spoilers would have been ridiculously awesome so Disney just decided to have us over here in the United States and Canada see it at the same time so we Marvel fans can enjoy the movie all the same time. Thank you Disney.

Well, this is the latest news for Avengers: Infinity War and it has absolutely made my day. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a Marvel-ous day.
