Is ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ a Secret Avengers Movie?

I had an epiphany the other day. I was thinking about, well, Marvel and something dawned on me.

The last Marvel movie to have a trailer as a post-credit scene for another MCU film was The Avengers at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. The Avengers, of course, was the studio’s first ensemble film which managed to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could face the battles most never could. The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lived up to the hype, stopping Loki and his invasion on Earth in a film that not only changed the game for the superhero genre but proved that Marvel Studios was, in fact, not a fluke.

So, considering that was the last MCU film to have a trailer as a post-credits scene is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness secretly the latest Avengers movie? It makes sense if that were so.

Last year each film was very much a standalone story; from the series to the movies, the stories never really required a multitude of superheroes from different properties to save the day. Even Doctor Strange played a menial role in Spider-Man: No Way Home, allowing the focus to truly shine on Spider-Man and his story alone.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the first movie that is actually going to feature a multitude of heroes, Wong, America Chavez, and of course Wanda a.k.a the Scarlet Witch. And that’s not the only heroes we will see in this movie.

There are rumors that we will be seeing a multiversal Avengers team in this film comprised of a group of heroes that I will not disclose in this post. I will say this though, the rumored members of this team is going to have people cheering again for sure.

And with so many cameos destined for this movie this truly does feel like a major event coming our way this May and I am ready for the showdown. What’s going to happen, how will it affect the MCU moving forward, and is this in fact, technically, the next Avengers movie? I think it is.

Here’s the trailer if you need a quick reminder of the awesomeness that awaits us.

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

Where Does ‘Hawkeye’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Even though we’re a few weeks removed from the Hawkeye era I’m finally getting around to ranking it in the MCU. Once again, this will be a slightly different ranking because it’s always shifting for me but, yeah, here we go. Let’s add this thirty-second installment to the list.  

32. The Incredible Hulk

Eternals isn’t the worst MCU film. This is. It’s so bad it isn’t on Disney+ and I don’t care.

31. Thor

It’s got one of the best-acted scenes in the franchise between Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins when Loki’s birthright is revealed but…that’s the only great thing about this movie. Oh, and the first thirty minutes are pretty fun to watch. The rest is a snoozefest.

30. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

There’s too much hollering, the jokes aren’t as funny, Ego is an okay villain, Yondu’s death is corny, and Gamora gets sidetracked for this story a bit. The only thing that keeps me coming back is how visually stunning this movie is.

Ranking the Movies of 2021: From Worst to Best

It’s been a busy movie year. I’ve seen a bunch of movies, some that have been legitimately enjoyable while there have been a few stumbles along the way. Now it’s the end of 2021 and it’s time to share my ranking. Enjoy!

32. The Matrix: Resurrections

The Matrix Resurrections' Review: The Wachowskis Were the Oracles All Along  | WIRED

When I saw the official teaser for The Matrix: Resurrections I wasn’t expecting the best movie ever but I wasn’t expecting a movie that bad.

A few days before the fourth installment hit HBO Max I watched The Matrix with my sister (it was only my second viewing… and it was awesome… again) so I was fresh into this story. Then I watched Resurrections and my head practically exploded.

It’s so bad and as someone who has never been a fan of this franchise, this movie just seemed even worse than I could’ve imagined. The story is an intriguing concept but poorly executed, Yahya Abdul Mateen II is a TERRIBLE Morpheus, and the actors, set designs, and costumes sometimes feel like a high-budget show on Syfy. It’s that bad.

31. The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad' Isn't a Typical Superhero Movie - The Atlantic

There are people who will say this is one of the best comic book movies they’ve seen. I beg to differ. The Suicide Squad is a ridiculously violent, boring island adventure with a bunch of unlikable characters and maybe two standouts. And yeah the villain was actually intimidating…for two seconds. Then he was killed in such a ridiculous fashion that I was left just staring at the screen like, “Really.”

But I’m glad there were people who liked it.

⭐½

30. In the Heights

In the Heights (2021) - IMDb

In the Heights used to be my least favorite film of the year but there are two films worse than it this year for sure. It’s is still one of the worst musicals I’ve ever seen though.

⭐⭐

29. The Little Things

The Little Things' movie review, Denzel Washington thriller - Los Angeles  Times

I wasn’t expecting this movie to be good but I wasn’t expecting it to be as bad as it was either. I love a good whodunnit movie but this film just didn’t cut it. And its conclusion was infuriating!

‘Dune’ Might Win Best Picture and ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Could Join the Race

I can’t believe this is a post I’m writing but here we are.

Ever since Dune came out it’s been kind of obvious that it would garner a bunch of award nominations thanks to Denis Villeneuve doing something no other director has been able to manage; make a great Dune movie.

It managed to surpass my expectations and showed that the film was adaptable to the big screen after all. So far, the film has not won any major awards yet but with the Critics’ Choice Awards hopefully, just a few weeks away (it was supposed to take place on January 9 but with the sudden outburst of COVID it’s been delayed indefinitely) it’ll be the first test on whether the sci-fi epic has a real shot at nabbing Best Picture next year.

Jane Campion's 'The Power of the Dog' Is a Gorgeous Western | Time

It however does have some stiff competition against the critically-acclaimed Netflix film The Power of the Dog directed by Jane Campion (The Piano) thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch’s rave reviews for his apparent outstanding performance as an incredibly mean homosexual cowboy. The role has been said by many to be his best performance.

And then there’s Kenneth Branagh’s under-the-radar Belfast which has started to ramp up as one of the best films of the year.

Marvel Studios Just Proved That “Marvel Fatigue” Isn’t a Thing

“Marvel fatigue.” It’s a term that has been circulating for the past few years as Marvel Studios has dedicated themselves to giving fans more and more content. That seemed like an understatement this year as we got four movies and five series, all of which have been varying degrees of entertaining. But now Spider-Man: No Way Home has made history by having the third best opening weekend of all time domestically and globally…during the pandemic… and without China’s box-office numbers.

With $253 million domestically and $587 million globally the film surpassed many expectations. In fact, No Way Home made more money in its opening weekend than The Force Awakens… We, as Star Wars fans, apparently need to do better.

Thankfully the film was worth every cent, as its two and a half hours ran by thanks to a riveting, surprisingly emotional story that gave Spider-Man fans everything they could’ve possibly wanted and a little bit more.

Tomorrow I’m talking spoilers in my official spoiler review and I can’t wait to discuss the film with you.

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