“Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.” And it has. The long-awaited Avengers: Infinity Wars is here.
Released April 27th, the Avengers movie features all your favorite superheroes. Including Black Panther, Captain America, Spider-Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s time for all the heroes to band together to stop Thanos…and the end of the world. (Or, half of the world.)
All the movies in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) have been leading up to this moment. From the end of credit scene in the first Avengers, that hinted at Thanos’s arrival. Not to mention the cliffhangers left at both the Spiderman, Thor and Black Panther movies that fans cannot wait to be resolved.
Many questions have arisen about what the Avengers movie might hold. And the trailers have not seemed to do much but generate questions. What happens to Vision? Thor? Iron Man? What about the Winter Soldier? And what is with Black Widow’s hair? Or Captain America’s beard?
I am happy to say that some of your questions do get answered in this movie, including some that you didn’t even know you had. The movie did an amazing job at combining all the superheroes, and showing all of their adventures. Though it did jump around to the different points of view, there was a perfect balance between humor and the serious plot of the movie.
The writers also did an amazing job at introducing each character, not just to the audience, but also to the other characters. It was widely known that the Guardians and the Avengers were going to finally meet, but the movie did a great job at introducing them to each other without losing focus on the main problem.
Of course, you can’t end a Marvel movie without an end of credit scene. It was speculated that the end of credits would lead into the Captain Marvel movie coming out next March. Starring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, the movie is said to introduce the characters origin story, as well as taking place after the end of Infinity Wars. There are hopes to see how the Captain handles the effects left at the end of this movie and leads up to the fourth Avengers coming out next May.
Marvel has already released the trailer for their next movie, Ant-Man, and the Wasp. To be released July 6, 2018, the movie features Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. The movie is said to take place in the two years between Civil War and this Avengers movie. The trailer very much implies that Civil War left Ant-Man on some bad terms with the government, as well as his family. Find out how they are dealing with being on the run, and finally get to see the Wasp suit in action.
And even though this movie has just hit theaters, there are many speculations about what Avengers 4, supposedly named Infinity Wars Part 2, may hold. Not to mention the ever-growing cast list that continuously leaves fans guessing. Time travel? Memory resurfacing? S.H.I.E.L.D? As well as some other out of the ballpark speculation. But I guess we will find out May 2019.
