I Want To See Another Thor Movie

Thor. Oh, the mighty Thor. At one time he was my least favorite Avenger. He was always too serious. He never cracked a joke. He never fit in right with the team. And he was made out to be epic but he felt the exact opposite for me.

I guess Taika Waititi realized that no, Thor isn’t exactly epic, but he’s really funny and actually has a great personality behind that austere facade. And so, he revamped the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok and my view of Thor has been changed ever since.

Now when I see Thor he makes me smile because he is all kinds of awesome. He’s hilarious, heroic, powerful, cool, etc. I’ve love Thor.

Thor is so great in fact that I would be kind of sad if the Russo Brothers killed him off in Avengers 4. I get it, we’re going to see some of these classic Avengers perish in this next film but Thor’s so cool now. I’d be a shame to get rid of him just when he became really awesome.

And besides, I’d LOVE to see at least one more Marvel film with Taika Waititi as the director featuring another wild adventure with yours truly; Thor. It could be so much fun. It could once again star Tessa Thompson as his newfound Asgardian buddy, Valkyrie. Maybe Bruce Banner could come along again for the ride. And then maybe we could see some other new characters that could make the movie a complete blast.

I’m not familiar at all with the Thor comics so I don’t know which new villains he could face but I’m sure it could be really cool.

Like I said before, Thor is awesome, and I definitely think he needs at least one more film. What do you think? Should Thor return for another movie or should his story end in Avengers 4? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

 

The Five Best Moments in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

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.

Ranking the Marvel Trailers From Worst to Best; Part 1

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.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ At Home

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 PantherCaptain America: Civil WarThor: 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.

How Women Have Evolved in Marvel: Part 1

Marvel has made twenty movies in the last ten years and through this fascinating journey that Marvel has taken us on we have seen an evolution of the franchise right before our very eyes. Take The Avengers for example. In its heyday it was the talk of the town, the groundbreaking movie that broke creative barriers that people didn’t know could be achieved as it proved that a superhero film could be successful with multiple heroes. It broke records and set a precedent for the Marvel movies that would come afterward. Now it’s just an old example of the first steps Marvel was taking to create this fantastic journey that has led up to the events of today’s current Marvel films. But as great as The Avengers was it’s always a little jarring seeing how much it lacked diversity compared to how the franchise looks now.

The only major women in The Avengers was Black Widow and Agent Hill and the only person of color to participate in the film was Nick Fury. Marvel, at that time, was still heavily centered around white male characters and in the last few years that dynamic has changed a lot, making the franchise that much more enjoyable. So, through the course of the nest two days, I’m going to look at how the roles of women have evolved throughout the years to what the MCU is now. Enjoy!

In the MCU’s first installment, Iron Man, the one major female presence was Pepper Potts whose character was the typical hot assistant that the rich guy, in this case Tony Stark, couldn’t keep his eyes off of. She was merely a part of the movie’s story as Tony’s imminent love interest and soon to be damsel-in-distress.

In The Incredible Hulk Liv Tyler played Betty Ross, the love interest of Bruce Banner and daughter of General “Thunderbolt” Ross. Once again a woman in the MCU was utilized as merely a tool for romance rather than substance and that’s always a bummer.

Who’s Your Favorite Classic Avenger?

When Iron Man came out ten years ago I could’ve never imagined all of the incredible movies and heroes that would spawn from this superhero franchise. Looking back it’s amazing how far this franchise has come and while there are now over two dozen different superheroes to enjoy it’s still good to recognize the characters that made this franchise so awesome in the first place. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite I’m asking you which classic Avenger is the hero that you absolutely love? Here they are. Enjoy!

The Hulk

The Hulk has always been a cool character because he’s such a unique superhero. I mean, he’s a scientist named Bruce Banner who accidentally induced himself with too much gamma radiation and on spurts becomes a giant-green-rage-monster. That’s sounds so awesome…and it is. The Hulk is not only sometimes frightening and intimidating but he’s also quite hilarious as well. I mean, who knew The Hulk loved fire? Lol.

My Five Favorite Marvel Sidekicks

While there are nearly two dozen superheroes saving the world time and time again in the MCU from life threatening villains sometimes they need help from their not-so-super, or sometimes kind of super, sidekicks to get the job done. So, in honor of these lesser advertised heroes, I’m dedicating a post to these characters who have brought me so much joy over the years.

5. Heimdall

I remember when I watched Thor: Ragnarok for the first time Heimdall was my favorite character from Thor’s world after seeing the movie. His eyes were strange and he was so cool looking as he stood as guard of the Bifrost (I think that’s what he was guarding.) Throughout the Thor franchise his awesome never particularly dwindled and his involvement in Thor: Ragnarok only helped increase his coolness. Unfortunately he was killed at the very beginning of Avengers: Infinity War so it’s a good chance we’ll never see him again but he was definitely an awesome compatriot of Thor’s while he lasted.
