I know that it seems like I am against the Marvel films. I tend to try and defend the DC movies a little more and I have some criticisms over the MCU (which could be going away after the latest Thor and Guardians films). However, that does not mean that I do not love these movies. I get very excited for them and get chills when Black Panther says “get this man a shield.” How can you not be excited? Or the prospect of Thor meeting the Guardians? Side note, I bet that will be one of the first scenes of the movie (I said this in my Thor review).
This is where the Marvel approach paid off and works so much better. They do not need to waste any time introducing characters or giving us a quick summary on who the Hulk is or how Captain America got his powers. They just assume you have seen all the movies leading up to this one. Now you just need action, lots of action. And a cool ass villain, and Thanos definitely fits that bill. “Fun isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe, but this hahaha, does put a smile on my face.” Josh Brolin was a great choice.
Quick prediction time, who will die at the end of this movie?
