I'm not a big comic movie fan but a buddy offered me a ticket at the last minute and gave me an edible and that movie was a hell of an experience. I haven't seen all the recent Marvel stuff but was still able to follow along after the first bit of exposition. This was a really well crafted movie and I admire the scale and artful way they managed to weave together so much shit. I'm gonna have to see some of the Marvel movies that I've missed in the last few years now.

“ I know I say @marvelstudios outdoes itself with every movie but this one is the definition of a home run, from serious tone to perfectly placed comedy, character chemistry, mood and theme transitioning and cgi was all on point.

@therussobrothers did an amazing job of keeping you locked in and focused adding so much depth especially in Thanos, you really connect with him on so many levels.

Dr. Strange is my MVP it was just a surreal feeling seeing him and @robertdowneyjr #ironman on screen together they mesh so well.

Thor is a close second @chrishemsworth
Is growing on me, one of my favourites in the MCU, he brings the whole movie together.

There is not much I can say what won't give things away so I'll say this, the movie is phenomenal, it will have you laughing your butt off, in tears and breathless.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself, so I copy pasted that.

I honestly haven’t ever been that into a cinematic experience in my life.

I seriously love that they gave a total fakeout happy ending where it looks as though Thor has saved the day at the last second and killed Thanos before he can use the fully powered gauntlet, but then NOPE, he has enough strength left to snap his fingers, and it's all she wrote. The non-comic audiences will totally buy that as Thanos' end because they're expecting a happy ending for the movie, but instead they get the most depressing five minutes in Marvel history. Really ballsy stuff.

I didn't see ant man, didn't see dark world (Or don't remember it at least), didn't see age of ultron, but I did watch thor ragnarok. Yes, this picks up right where ragnarok ends.

I watched the cam version last night. Here's my review.
Infinity War is better than I expected going in. There were lots of clunky establishing scenes where the characters interact and say "witty" things. I can accept that. I don't like it, but I can accept it. I would have preferred much less expositional horse shit that sets up the plot nice and clear-like for all the retards watching. But putting that aside, I enjoyed the film. I liked that the Hulk is having a personal crisis, for the first time he's afraid of an enemy. I wish Banner would have been given more credit, he's sort of one of the fools of the movie, which I don't like. Banner isn't a buffoon, yet here he acts like one. The wakandan fight scene, I feel, was not done properly enough. Sure, it was fine, but it was missing something. The whole scene went too fast, and it was the one scene I wish there was MORE exhibition in, but between the villains and the heroes. Also the scene where Thanos sacrificed his daughter should have been done more intensely, yea sure, thanos cried, boo hoo, whatever. I wanted to see an emotionally gut wrenching scene that would leave me crying. I didn't get that. I got weak sauce instead. Don't want to frighten the retards with feels afterall. The only time in the whole movie I almost did cry, was when Groot died...and that's not so much because of the way they shot the scene, it's more to do with that Groot is fucking Groot, and if someone made an MS paint comic of groot dying, I'd still get cry-feels. Anyway I'm eager to see how they wrap this up. I'm also wondering if they're going to make Secret Wars next..

If you didn't sit through the 15 minutes of credits you missed the extra scene. Basically Nick Fury and some other ex Avengers chick noticed what was happening and Nick managed to put out a distress call to Captain Marvel just in time before they both faded to dust. His communications thing falls to the ground and you see Captain Marvel's insignia on it. I'm guessing this upcoming Captain Marvel movie will be a prequel or a prologue and then we'll catch up where we left off in Infinity War with Captain Marvel coming to the rescue.

There were a lot of continuity errors.
They nerfed Vision....I mean did didn't do much but mope around with Scarlet Witch. Whom ALL OF A SUDDEN CAN KILL HIM...Didn't she pound him down like 30 stories with no real damage once? Also, what happened with the Hulk? In Ragnarok, he was always on. Then he never turns on after getting his ass kicked by Thanos. Also, Banner in the Hulk Buster suit looked fucking ridiculous. Tiny baby head on a massive body. It looked like what it was...crappy CGI. Fortunately there is just one brief scene with Banner poking his head out of the damn thing.

I dunno....overall it was OK, but I was far from impressed. It felt like everything was sort of just setting up the next movie. That it wasn't a complete movie by any means.

Are you people legit excited about this movie? I kind of hated the movie. It's really, really hard to get emotionally involved with the action when you know for a fact that the heroes are never in danger since they bring so much money to marvel. They could have killed all of the characters and you still wouldn't feel anything because you know they'd all be back in the next movie. Because of that absolute lack of tension, all of the action scenes are basically the equivalent of someone dingling keys in front of a baby. God, I hate those tensionless "epic big war" scenes, they all look the same -- they all look like those cgi trailers for generic free MMOs -- so boring.

Also, too many characters. They handled it really nice, but even the most brilliant mind in the world would be able to make these many characters in the same movie not messy. By the 5th character reveal you don't even care anymore. It's just "oh, look, it's that guy from the other movie I guess". And like >>397237 said, I think it really needed a legit tear jerk moment to make you feel something -- anything -- in this movie because who cares about green girl from guardians of the galaxy (or was she blue? I don't even remember).

But anyway, it's what you'd expect this movie would be. Everybody knows that the more "epic" and "massive" the movie, the less the emotional impact it'll have because of the lack of character development and the endless boring and meaningless fights that hurt your eyes (that xmen apocalypse or something movie is a good example). Which is the reason why the best marvel movies are the more personal and small in scale ones.

And what's the deal with that cgi alien action woman? Why didn't they use a real actress? That shit looked like ps4 graphics, it was so embarrassing.

It makes me really mad when I see all the mouth-breathers on the internet giving their meaningless numerical scores (as if numbers can represent the quality of an art piece) to the movie because they clapped after seeing the action guy say a reference. And oh god, people on the theater, jesus christ, these people are so obnoxious.

I guess I only watched this movie because I kind of had to after watching all the marvel movies. Why did I give so much of my money to disney? I should have pirated all of this shit.

Kinda agreeing with you there. I think they balanced the big bag of characters they had to deal with well...but yeah...I felt like the movie was just there make money. The ending had me going He'll be back...and anyone who might not, I didn't give a fuck about. Even the tear jerker they pulled with Spiderman blubbering like a little girl before he gets reversed Raptured by Thanos left me literally cold. I guess the Marvel fanbase is enough to ensure a ton of people getting emotional about the ending, but come on...this is just a retelling of shit they published back in what? '91? We know how it ends. Like people getting fucking upset when the boat sinks in Titanic. Old news.

Fuckin A, nobody gives a shit about how the movie is being directed so long as its not completely shit like the StarWars franchise has become with disney. They did their job well, and while not perfect, its already shattering all previous box office records. At this point its a matter of how long will it reign on top like this?

You're clearly thinking way too much about a movie that's made for manchildren. Being one that enjoyed it, I can say that.

There were a lot of issues in the movie, a lot of the cgi people was pretty annoying at times. And of course there's no development. Everyone important got that before the movie, that was the entire point, and the development they tried to cram into this movie just didn't work so thankfully they didn't do much of it.

It's a spectacle. A $300 million spectacle. Just because someone enjoyed the scale of this spectacle doesn't make them a mouthbreather who clapped when Thor got his hammer. Get over yourself. You're acting like you're disappointed that a Marvel movie wasn't made for the most discerning and intellectual of viewers with your dumb "dangling keys in front of babies" analogy.

I can't argue with that at all. I honestly prefer to read DC or third party comics over marvel. After the whole magneto thing that ended the original ultimate spider-man run then the combination of the two universes I gave up on that shit. I will admit my bias however, I think these marvel movies are gonna start a new age of movies, or at least blockbusters. I'm not sure I'm ready for everything to have a million fucking movies and a universe. It worked well for marvel but look at DC or the Universal dark universe.

I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

Thanos vs Strange is the only stone on stone battle sequence.

Thanos shoots a beam from the power stone, Strange blocks it with the Mirror Dimension and then pushes the dimension back to him. Thanos punches through it with a punch from the power stone, shattering it. Next Thanos uses the space stone to suck up the remnants of the shattered mirror dimension and send the volley back to Strange. We see Strange coming up with a counter spell that turns the volley into time stone green butterflies. Thanos doesn't react to this, he only recoils at the Strangeness (lol)

Why is this important? A yellow butterfly shows up in Strange's introduction to the multi-verse when the ancient one sends him off. Also during that trippy sequence, we see all of the infinity stone colors being channeled through Strange. A little on the nose perhaps?

Next, Strange does his multi-armed deity attack, which perhaps allows him to channel some energy from Thanos? At the very least Thanos uses the reality stone to dispel the illusion of multiple Stranges.

So, from all of this we have Doctor Strange who has experienced first hand: 2 blasts from the power stone, one blast from the space stone, and one spell from the reality stone.

The remaining questions are, were those green butterflies a duplicate time stone? Did he have an encounter with the soul stone that was subtly hinted at? Or was it necessary for Thanos to get the mind stone so that he could channel the energy of the remaining stones, allowing Strange to take in the final 2 stones and thus create some alternate dimension/reality?

Also, I'm pretty sure there's a Dutch Tilt when Strange flies in to confront Thanos.

DC tried way too hard to catch up with Marvel by just throwing money at their problems, and Universal barely tried.
This sorta thing takes serious commitment, remember that the first Iron Man came out in 2008.

I'm just sad that the DC movies all suck so far because I really prefer the characters and stories from their franchise over Marvel.

The thor hammer part was pretty cool, although I couldn't suspend my disbelief since I don't think that groot's branch was good enough to be the handle of such a powerful hammer. I mean, it's kind of like putting toyota prius tires on a mclaren. Was it how it happened in the comics? It's a nice emotionally impactful moment, but I don't know. Why do I even want things to make sense in a fantasy movie.

I felt bad but didn't tear up like a quality film would accomplish. But I also like the comic series and her dying would be a major bummer end to her arc. Although now I'm glad I didn't waste tears when she will obviously come back to life with whatever saves all those raptured heroes.

Nah, not really. I mean it was sad but you were definitely supposed to cry but they just didn't really have the time to build it up. Maybe if they spared like 5 more minutes into that and cut the whole Vision love arc it could have worked. And really, Gamora isn't the most likeable character. I mean people like her, but not a lot of people actually love her. But if you view it in the lens that it was about development for Thanos (really he's the only character that got development, so essentially he is the main character) the scene definitely served its purpose.

Phase 1
I advise watching the first Iron Man, Thor & Captain America movies before the first Avengers movie. They're the 3 main characters of the whole shtick so it'll provide a good foundation. Each has their own personality and genre tropes and supporting cast so it might inform your decision to give certain sequels a look.
Incredible Hulk is entirely skippable. They original actor got fired, legal buyout stuff prevented sequels and nothing (save one supporting character) ever gets mentioned again. It was his scene-stealing showing in the Avengers movie that finally got Hulk over. Iron Man 2 is pretty forgettable but introduces a few supporting heroes that gain prominence later on, if you like Iron Man 1 you'll like it too.
Phase 2
Iron Man 3 is very hit-or-miss with people as a story, but fun & explosive & basically a direct sequel to Avengers. Again, your mileage will depend primarily on how invested you are in Iron Man as a character.
Thor 2/The Dark World is even more hit-or-miss, it was my fave for a long time but that's because I liked stuff people hated about 1 and there's more of it. It also introduces the magical maguffins that Infinity War's all about and focuses the entire plot around one of them, if that's important to you.
People love Cap 2/Winter Soldier in general. Lil' more cerebral & self-serious. It sets up Avengers 2, and thus the things that Avengers 2 sets up. The directors impressed so many people with it that it landed them the Infinity War directing job, so if metacontext is you're thing there's some incentive.
Ant-Man exists. Like Hulk its production was mired in lots of politics that majorly detract from its narrative significance. Still quaint bite-size imaginative fun tho, if you have the time. Mostly it's just an origin story for his appearance in:
Phase 3
Cap 3/Civil War's great, and arguably a better Avengers 2 than Avengers 2. Still, it's Cap's movie at its heart. No cosmic space opera magical rock stuff whatsoever, all down-to-earth emotionally-wrought character studies to pay off ~10 movies worth of investment in these characters. The way the directors seamlessly juggle so many divergent arcs & plots is what gave me faith that Infinity War'd pull it off.
Dr Strange is KINO. Watch Dr fucking Strange. Even if it didn't introduce a focal character, a vital maguffin and several important concepts, it's just bloody awesome as a film in its own right.
Thor 3/Ragnarok is fun weaponized. Colorful, varied, creative, wacky, kick-ass, think GotG but more MANLY. Also leads directly into Infinity War (literally - by a matter of minutes) and established Thor's pretty-central character arc for it accordingly.

The Avengers movies by themselves do a fine enough job of filling you in on what's happened so you could skip allllll of this and just watch those, but that includes Avengers 3/Infinity War itself so if you really wanted to save time you could go in totally blind and would fare pretty well. It's like only watching Wrestlemania every year; you're told you should care, but still missed everything that would make you care.

In summation:
>what movies feature the magical maguffins in Infinity War
Captain America, Avengers, Thor 2 The Dark World, GotG, Avengers 2, Dr Strange
>what movies feature plot point relevant to Infinity War
Thor, Avengers, GotG, Cap 3 Civil War, GotG 2, Thor 3 Ragnarok
>what movies are simply worth watching regardless
Iron Man, Cap 2 Winter Soldier, Dr Strange, the 3 you've already seen

Sorry there aren't more hard-passes. Turns out they're VERY good at making everything feel must-see for one reason or another.

Saw it last night, and walked out near the end of the movie, right when Thanos arrived to Wakanda. The first half of the movie was strong, but somehow the movie just lost me during the last half. I wasn't crazy about how the movie was oddly structured, nor was I fan of all the unnatural quips between the heroes. There were too many characters and it also felt as if there were too many subplots strung together.

I'll most likely give it another chance because I watched it in a crowded theater, which is something I don't normally do. This guy and his girlfriend were sitting next to me, and she kept asking a billion questions because she didn't watch the previous Marvel movie. Like, bitch wouldn't shut the fuck up. Then the audience would clap at the most random shit at times. It was just weird. I felt obligated to see it early since people on the internet have a fetish for spoiling shit, like this cocksucker here >>397347 You wanna use some spoilers next time, pal?

>I'm assuming that this movie started where Ragnarok ended
Yes.
>Would I have to see Dark World to get the big picture?
Dark World first mentions the term "Infinity Stones", introduces the red/Reality one, and starts Loki's slow-burn face turn. Ragnarok finalizes said face turn, loses Thor his hammer & eye, and ends up with the entire Asgardian population on a spaceship boldly going where no God has gone before. Then Thanos' ship shows up. I love them both as movies & would recommend them as experiences but that's all the relevant info for Infinity War (plus a few of the deaths that Thor rattles off on the GotG ship).

Wanda never tried killing him before, just slowing/incapacitating him. They establish that she can because only a stone can pwn a stone and her powers are derived from a stone (the very same Stone, I-just-realized).
The Hulk thing is clearly a plot thread they're setting up to be answered in Part 2. I think it's pretty clear that he's never had his ass kicked that bad before and doesn't know how to deal with it, so is basically hiding like a scared kid. Logically, his arc next time will be about overcoming that fear - maybe even being inspired by puny Banner standing up to Thanos - and coming out for a big "I'm Always Angry" blowout that he knows he'll lose but does anyway.
Banner's CGI baby head was hilariously conspicuous & shoddy-looking, yes.

The irony is that all Marvel did was apply what they've been doing for ~60 years to another medium. They've always been masters of continuity & crossovers & creative marketing. They were comic guys who got bought out by movie guys AFTER they achieved success in making movies.
DC's comic guys were bought out by movie guys decades ago, thus it was the movie guys who managed the movie project. Badly. Because they didn't fully understand these concepts that comic guys did. FFS Green Lantern only got made because some starch-shirted WB exec was an army nut who suddenly wanted a movie with lots of air force imagery.
Universal had no comic basis whatsoever so fucked everything up royally. Which is extra ironic considering they were technically the true originators of the shared universe movie concept back in the 30s.

Srsly that level of plans-within-plans Keikakkumancy would fit him pretty well & put him over strong as the new face of the franchise.
Alas, although Strange clearly put something in motion with his decision, I think there's a much simpler resolution in the works: They made sure that the Mind Stone was the last, hardest, most advertised Stone Thanos got, even putting it slap-bang central in the gauntlet's biggest slot.After having spent the whole latter half of the movie drilling into the audiences head how the Mind Stone and Vision's consciousness are virtually inseparable.

Here's summin to really make you think.
All of the deleted heroes were from Phase 2 & 3.
All of the Phase 1 heroes were among the survivors, some unexpectedly.
The Phase 1 cast are all at the ends of their contracts, the Phase 2/3 cast are who're getting getting movies after this.
You're all right, the future's already secure. But the OG Avengers team that made it possible are getting a big save-the-universe send-off first to punctuate their hard work. And there's nothing keeping them around if they die in the process. They might even "trade" their lives for the new heroes that disappeared.

This actually came up IRL after my showing. IMO, Enchantment-or-no, it's already "dead" wood - an object, independent of him - and the finale specified half of all life. Also, nobody simply died, they got fundamentally wiped from existence, which you can't really reverse-engineer. Maybe I'm totally wrong, but best I can tell - the scene existed to give him a reason to be in the film at all. Not as foreshadowing.

IDK "Thanos beats up Hulk" doesn't sound like a surprise to me whatsoever. And given how quickly it was over it's not a deal-breaker.
"Thanos kills Loki" on the other hand, I genuinely didn't see coming. Even after my brother suggested it going in. I was convinced he'd slip in his usual sycophantic shtick and go for the jugular much later, essentially filling Mephisto's role in the comic. I didn't count on him actually learning from his experiences, remaining loyal to Thor and acting heroically from the start. It's a very bitter-sweet feel.

Metaphorical rape scenarios in comics always leave a bitter taste in my mouth. It's much more fulfilling when it's explicitly stated, and the characters can work through it bluntly and honestly without all the subterfuge. I get that it's marvel and they have their gay little Comic Book Code and whatever but still, they should steer clear of it if they're not going to deal with it respectfully and properly. Rape isn't the sort of thing that needs metaphors made about it, and yet it's how it's most often dealt with because society has such a sick perverse problem with sexual penetration.

>As I say, most of my writings in this area have concerned joyous expressions of sexuality, with as much diversity as I was capable of applying at the time. Unless anyone is arguing that comic books are not a place for sexual matters, then I don’t see that they can have any major disagreements with the above. So perhaps it is the next decision that I made wherein I am at fault: my thinking was that sexual violence, including rape and domestic abuse, should also feature in my work where necessary or appropriate to a given narrative, the alternative being to imply that these things did not exist, or weren’t happening. This, given the scale upon which such events occur, would have seemed tantamount to the denial of a sexual holocaust, happening annually. I could not, in all conscience, produce work under those limitations without at least attempting to change or remove them. Presumably, my current critics would have done differently, and indeed, as I remember, most people in the field found it more convenient simply not to address issues of sex or sexuality – or those of race, politics, gender and any other matters of social substance, for that matter.

One interesting scene is where despite being enemies, Thanos has a big respect for Tony, that's because both of them have a similar views, just remember when Tony made Ultron, he got the same things like views and thinking of Tony, and this explains that in Tony's point of view, the only way to save humanity is it's destruction.

Okay so... there's no telling how much they'll diverge from the source material, but in the comics the original, male Captain Marvel was Thanos' first nemesis. The Life to his Death, if you wheel. Imagine if John Wayne was also SpaceJesus. Thanos' character, origins, motives, family, supporting cast etc. were all fleshed out in the Captain Marvel comic.
The current, female Captain Marvel was the OG's fiery human love interest, who got powers like his from a military accident and went off to be a superhero herself. Lots of fucked up shit happened to her, causing her to become disconnected from her own humanity & fly off into deep-space as escapism. When he dies, she goes through a long hard process of overcoming her demons & building her life back up to prove she's worthy of carrying on his name/legacy.
I've not kept up with the movie production but know this much: the OG Captain Marvel's been cast (Jude Law), it's gonna be set in the 1990s, and Thanos' alien acquaintances from GotG1 are featured. Presuming they stick closely to the source material instead of deviating for the sake of it; we might explore Titan before it fell, learn more about Thanos' past, witness the start of a long-term Infinity Gauntlet contingency plan, see Brie Larson go through some fucked up traumatic sci-fi shit that gives her 20 years of character development but not 20 years of age, and/or enjoy some literal unabashed Marvel-funded DBZ fights.

My all time favorite DC movies are ''Watchmen'' and ''V for Vendetta'', both are far ahead of their time.

I honestly have nothing against Mark Ruffalo, but in my honest opinion his verson of Hulk/Bruce Banner is just a tiny pussy compared with the Ed Norton version of Hulk from 2008 movie, Ed Nortons version was far more superrior, scarrier and better in my opinion.

The fundamental difference between DC & Marvel is dynamism. DC's setting, characters & stories run on mythologizing, grandeur, symbolism etc. whilst Marvel's have centered around colloquialism, familiarity, relevance etc.. The former's heroes are perfect unattainable ideals from make-believe cities whilst the latter's are joe shmoe everymen from New York. Since one had the peerless alien god & the billionaire playboy ninja to look up to, the other gave powers to a bickering family & an insecure teen you could look eye-to-eye with. Hence why "SJW" is such a laughabler insult; Marvel's ALWAYS been "SJW". Half of their heroes were born of social justice ideas & movements.
Marvel comics got as mad-over as they did in the 1960s because they felt REAL. Characters actually learnt & grew & aged in that first decade. The problem is that the Marvel formula lived & died by the realism. Once they started to stray from it, slow time down, become more absurd & fanciful, make consequences meaningless, hire emotionally-stunted fanboys & so on, they lost their edge and just became DC with far less likable "heroes". If the original Marvel Method spirit had stayed on-course, all of the staple heroes would've long since retired from old age having naturally passed their mantles to newer, younger heroes who'd gotten over with fans organically. Now new young heroes only get created at Marvel to push an agenda as hard & fast as possible. Because everyone knows they won't amount to anything with all those ageless Lee/Kirby creations still squatting at the top. New ideas for their own will get smothered, forgotten & dismissed. Might as well use them as a vector to shill some pretentious point whilst the new car smell lasts.
Except for in the movies. Because they use actors. And actors are real-life people. And real-life people AGE. Thus the worm turns; Marvel's blundered back into its winning formula in an entirely different medium. DC as a comic universe didn't have their problem. Everyone expects their characters to stay around forever. That's their appeal. Their transcendent icons. The DCU even has an in-built reset button to simplify everything when the continuity gets too knotted. DC comics only stumbled whenever they tried to emulate Marvel and be hip & trendy & socially-aware - it doesn't fit. But nobody fucking told the movie people that. They just saw the dosh Marvel was raking in at the box office and demanded DO THAT BUT WITH OUR GUYS. So just like how Marvel comics emulated DC comics and suffered DC movies have emulated Marvel movies and suffered. Because they're different fucking pantheons with different fucking philosophies requiring different FUCKING approaches. Which brings us full circle to >>397552.

Banner's meant to be demure and Norton was a standoffish prick. Ruffalo wins that hand down.
I'd argue Ruffalo does Hulk better too. Hulk's meant to be "scary" insofar as he's a toddler with a nuke button. All the power in the world and none of the maturity to use it. He's a character unto himself, not a mindless maguffin. Ruffalo's Hulk nails that emotional fragility, which makes the bomb going off distressing as well as scary. Take the Cape Town scene in Avengers 2. Hulk's fucking terrifying in that. But you also feel as bad for him as for any of the bystanders because you know he's not aware of what he's doing and will be traumatized once he is. Like the toddler realizing what the nuke did.

There's a point where Thor specifically says "Thanos killed half my people" which suggests that half were "let go" or something before the movie started? Then again he also killed all but one dwarf so fuck knows how consistent his rule-of-thumb is.
There's a chance, albeit a less-than-certain one, that whoever wishes "everyone who Thanos killed" back alive eventually will also indirectly revive Loki, Gamora, the Asgardians etc. too, so it may be a moot point by the time Phase 3 ends.

The reason Peter Parker is the only one to comment about feeling anything when Thanos snuffed out half the life in the universe is because he WAS the only one that felt anything. His spider sense kicked into near seizure levels of fear, sickness, and dread. He knew what was coming long before everyone else did.

Groot will not come back. Just like our original Groot that died in the fight against Ronan The Accuser, this Groot will have a son. Third generation Groot will be born from Thor's Stormbreaker ax handle.

Thinking more now this also makes sense from a sales/corporate standpoint because groot is very popular and is honestly pretty underpowered compared to most other teams OP char (groot is the guardians OP char), so it makes sense to pump him up a little more. Make him able to compete with some of the other teams heavy hitters like Hulk or Iron man. I'm not saying give him thor style lightning blasts, but something sensible like bio-electric flower bugs or something so he can taze people now instead of just having physical attacks. It would open up options to him like short circuiting things etc.

Like Thanos is probably my favorite MCU villain now other than Killmonger and he actually was built as a credible threat unlike all the other villains before. Then again he’s got the infinity stones so he can change space and time and all that shit.

I_don't_think_so_Tim.jpg. Axhandle won't do shit. It was already charred, dead wood; an autonomous object. Plus he's not simply "dead"; his being was fundamentally wiped from existence. I don't think even god-hammer magic can undo that shit. The handle scene existed to give Groot something to do that'd justify his being in the movie at all.

He didn't when he BTFO Hulk. IIRC the one he had didn't flash once during that; it was all him.
Thing about Thanos is, he's formidable AF without the gems. Technically he's an especially strong, especially smart, especially soulful member of Thor's race. It's what makes him the only guy in the universe with the aptitude, competence & willpower to not only find but wield all Six in unison. Shit when he went looking for the things in the comics (albeit with a less "noble" motive) he used just his wits & guile to set himself a challenge.

There's no backstory to Thanos' sidekicks. This was their first appearance. GotG introduced some business-acquaintances with their own agenda as its main villains, but the the only "crew" previously established were Gamora, Nebula & some vizier guy whom everyone thought'd be a big deal 'cuz he looked like Scarlet Witch's arch-demon arch-nemesis but they killed him off like a Red Shirt lel.
The group (they've got a special name... The Black Church or something?) were actually only created ~5 years ago, for some big "Thanos invades Earth" event that only existed to set-up another bigger event. IIRC the girl & the goblin are married, and unlike the ogre & the wizard survived all the way to said bigger event. Just realized they survive longer in the movie too, huh. I guess it was from necessity; you've got to set up pawns to make fighting the boss a bigger deal and the only sidekicks I can remember him having in the classic comics were a pair of hulk-lookin' twins whom the creator quickly realized were lame & got rid of.
Thanos' sharp angular armor in the movie is also a recent innovation from this decade. But whenever he takes it off for casual conversation/combat, his vest is the exact colors & pattern of his classic armor. Not important, but interesting. All the autistic nerd in me needs now is for him to lose the eyes. Too human. Gimme the eerie starlit pinpricks.

What do you mean by this? Death & Eternity are both abstracts in the first place.
Oblivion is another, lesser known abstract. His "sibling" abstract is Infinity. Whereas Death & Eternity embody the opposite extremes of time, Oblivion & Infinity embody the opposite extremes of space.

There's a lot more in your post I wanna dissect but as pertains to just the movies: All four are already canon to the MCU (albeit with a renamed Oblivion). Pic related was in GotG. And if they're gonna show... yeah, it'll most likely be via the Ant-Man movie. Will write a follow-up.

http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Avengers-Celestial-Quest/Issue-8?id=76814#5

i brought up oblivion (mcu version entropy) and death since in the comic version its much more convoluted , and the MCU they have streamlined a lot of cosmic because Disney/marvel mcu still doesnt have rights to many characters that are mainstays like galactus ,phoenix force.



http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Overspace

overspace as far as antman and the microverse as well as a possible quasar in gotg vol3 could be a pretty cool way to introduce the abstract entities Eternity, Infinity, Oblivion(entropy), Death.

>where oblivion stayed was i think called over space
AFAIK "Overspace" is one of many names used to refer to the general cosmic abstract water-cooler. Technically Oblivion is the one entity who doesn't hang out there, since it's existence and he doesn't much like existence. Oblivion's "place" if you can even call it that is the endless nothingness outside of reality. Might be why they've traded him for Entropy, which is much more specific, conceivable and dependent on stuff existing.
All of which is kinda irrelevant, because Oblivion/Entropy/whichever doesn't factor into the Gauntlet story. It's all about Eternity vs Death. His opposite Infinity isn't part of it either (despite the name), but that's where things get interesting regarding the movies. In the comics, Infinity DOES have their own personal "place". An dimension of pure solid uniform energy, big as normal reality but just slightly out of sync with it. Which brings us to:
>and pym particles could get you there via microverse
Kind of? Technically there's an Overspace "above" the material universe and an Underspace "below" it. You get to one by growing large enough to break through the dimensional barrier & the other by shrinking small enough to. Thing is - and this isn't unique to Marvel, vidya & cartoons have done it too - the universe is a wheel. Go far enough down you blip back in on top. Go far enough up you start growing from the bottom.
So theoretically, yeah. Although I've only seen it happen via growing, shrinking down far enough with Pym Particles to the universe-below-the-universe could actually end you up in the Overspace with all the big boys. And here's the clincher; that abstract realm Infinity exists in that runs all up & down both ends of the universe? It's called "The Quantum-Zone". What does Hank Pym call the underspace/microverse/sequelbait dimension with all the weird Dr Strange imagery at the end of Ant-Man? "The Quantum Realm". And guess what's already confirmed to be a plot point in the first MCU movie after Infinity War.

tldr; there are 4 fundamental forces in Marvel, 2 of which are focal to the Infinity Gauntlet story and have already been namedropped in the MCU, the other 2 of which are linked to a place that exists in the MCU and will be explored in Ant-Man & Wasp. Some purple fuck's messing with their stuff, around the same time some do-gooders land on their doorstep. Shit go go down. Pun unintended, but unrepentant.

BTW I double-posted so that I could add another image but now realize no one image covers everything. If anyone wants a dump of all the wacky Cosmic Abstract stuff I've been ranting about just say. A N T S

They bought out Fox tho. It's their's again. Has some sort of legal problem been in the news since then? The only character they haven't gotten back yet is Namor.
Regardless Galactus & the Phoenix are pretty tacked on anyway. As Marvel has the Big Four they don't have to change anything to accommodate their absence.
>also my memory was off with oblivion..i just always thought he looked way cooler than his actual character
don't talk shit pls, Oblivion is best cosmic boi

Marked out for the Quasar shoutout. If you only know him & Oblivion from that GotG arc I STRONGLY recommend you read the original Quasar run that it references. Up to issue 25, at least. That was the climax. It was running a bigger Infinity Gauntlet parallel to Infinity Gauntlet just under the radar.

Are you sure they weren’t featured in a previous MCU film even a little, or ever mentioned before in comics besides the past five years? I have a buddy who was pretty familiar with them, possibly from the comics but IMO they seem a bit more established than that, and someone in the thread here said they were in another MCU movie to lead up to the opening scene for Infinity War.

IDK this guy but I came across this video on youtube and have been listening.

It's 2 and half hours long so I've been listening in pieces, but dude is explaining the comic version of the Infinity Gauntlet and shows the comic scans as well.

Just posting incase someone else isn't familiar with the comic end.

None that I've seen m8. First news that the'd be in it at all came from cam-phone leaks when they were filming the Scotland & NY scenes. It was so outta nowhere that I thought it was bullshit at first.
Thanos' ship shows up in the Thor Ragnarok post-credit scene, but it doesn't show who's on it. Closest thing to any of them I can think of is the vizier dude from Avengers 1 who got his neck snapped in his very next appearance.

There's a compilation of just the Starlin SpaceJesus stuff to keep it simple. If you're after context for the current one phewwwwwww that's a little more complicated.
>quasar i lost track of years ago
He only ever got the one ongoing in the first half of the 90s. He lead the GotG's bigger badder beefier replacements The Annihilators for a bit but then GotG came back. Last I checked he'd just kinda retired and passed the mantle on.
>tbh i just want an adam warlock movie with pip the troll and moondragon doing whatever they always did
Dude MCU Adam Warlock's already fucked. Without Thanos or the Gems he just isn't Adam Warlock. Unless they rush him into Part 2 they won't be able to do him justice and "rushing him in" would likely look pretty shitty.
Plus they already cast Peter Dinklage so there goes the perfect Pip casting. And Drax's latest scenes drops further shade on Moondragon ever getting in.
That said it's all salvageable if a certain other character becomes Warlock.

But what if they change how it ends in the movie and fag it up like how they removed Thanos's reason for snuffing out half of life. His romantic pursuit of Death. Would have been a perfect opportunity to introduce the higher gods of the marvel universe.

>Would have been a perfect opportunity to introduce the higher gods
Not really? Worldbuilding works in the movies for the same reason it does in the comics; they can spread it the fuck out. Extravaganzas like Avengers, Civil War & this are only possible because 5-15 other movies have done all of the leg work explaining who these characters are, how these concepts work, what an Asgard is etc., allowing them the time & space to focus on cool shit.
We've not seen any abstracts yet. "Death" was namedropped, "Eternity" was namedropped, but as far as anyone knows they were just words. People expect Dormammu to be weird & incomprehensible since he exists in an entirely different universe, how the fuck does the normal matter-and-sequence universe have things like that? They'd have to be explained from the ground up. Infinity War worked because it was perfectly balanced wew dat irony, introducing a whole exposition plotline about metaphysics would topple the balance right over.
It'd also muddy a really well-done character arc for Thanos. "Fag it up" nothing, changes to source material are excusable if they're an improvement and Thanos' new reason is a lot more understandable, sympathetic & thus frankly scary. Like, FFS dude, have you read the comic? He didn't even PLAN to snuff out half of life. He did it on impulse after he'd had the Gauntlet for a while because he'd run out of ways to impress his waifu! I love his necrophilia too and will be really disappointed if they don't go there, but we've got another few movies for that. Maybe he discovers her with his newfound Cosmic Awareness and is immediately smitten. Maybe he's been doing it for her all along and is just lying. Maybe that's the true story behind Titan's fall. Captain Marvel spoilers, you heard it here first.

Also no shit they're gonna change it, the context's completely different. Here's that one sentence: The comic ends with Silver Surfer & Adam Warlock making Thanos realize he's not worthy of Death's love, undo everything he did & retire to a farm to rethink his worldview. There's no Surfer, no Warlock, and no deep-wrought pining for Mistress Death here. At best they can reshape the old material to fit the new setting like they already did with the "retire to a farm" part.

They could still introduce them in the sequel to Infinity War. I think they’re going to have a lot going on in the next movie since all the action sequences were done in the first part. Now, they have a lot of story ground to cover and everyone has gotten their shit in already. I think the only big action fight scene or scenes will be Hulk redeeming himself against Thanos and, maybe Iron Man/Captain America foolishly attempting one more attack. They’ll definitely have opportunities to introduce gods of the marvel universe with everyone being erased like they were.

I can see why they might want to skip introducing those gods at all. The movies have had a fair amount (for blockbuster action movies) of subtle existential questioning type content. Like, the second Guardians movie had a big solipsistic payload about Boltzmann Brain type shit.

As soon as you have higher powers and with them an inscrutable level of existence beyond (as opposed to parallel to) our own, you kind of defer a lot of that stuff to the realm of "unknown/unrevealed" as opposed to being open questions which are left with the audience for them to actively think about.

Dormammu's Dark Dimension, Ant-Man's Quantum Realm, etc.. They're "beyond", not "parallel". Parallel implies an alternate timeline to the same existence.
Y'know how the Phase 1 was all set on Earth, with slight dalliances into the cosmic? And Phase 2 built on that with an explicit cosmic movie? And how by Phase 3 cosmic's the norm and multiversal is the fresh new idea?
They're going with the gods, pham. It's unavoidable. They're the gatekeepers of the next evolution of the MCU. The Universe is the new Earth. Whatever's outside the Universe is the new whatever's outside Earth. The Abstract gods are the new Asgardian gods, sitting on the fence with a clear view of either yard.
They've made no secret that Dr Strange is intended to be the "new Iron Man" at the center of the setting going forward. i.e. the tour-guide for the multiverse and all its scary shit. Furthermore, Mordo looks set to be the new Loki. And why did Mordo turn? Because you don't fuck with Stones. There will be consequences. You'll get something's attention. So tell me; What do you think will happen now that's someone's abusing All Six?

In all seriousness it'll take Cap'n being well-established to even entertain the idea of a superfan.

Not long enough for "extremists" to have gone away sure but the Middle East is in a bit of a progressiveness dick-measuring contest right now that stands to make the situation a lot better in 5-10 years time.

Glad Parker being a genius has been properly shown on film for once. His level of smarts in the comics is almost a super power itself. That's what makes him OP.

TBF I saw an analysis on this last week; the movie's all abuot everyone doing the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason, and none of it mattering. The moral laws of the MCU stopped working. Thanos' superpower is "Fuck You I'm Thanos". Even Star Lord. Not sure if it was here or another site entirely but his "chimp out like a manchild" act is what saved the day in his two movies. Why wouldn't it here? And that only happened in the first place because he did the RIGHT thing earlier in pulling the trigger on Gamora and it didn't matter. Fuck You I'm Thanos.

Vision wanted Scarlet Witch to destroy the Mind Stone, she didn't want to because she didn't want to lose him. Tony wanted Strange to destroy the Time Stone, Strange didn't because he thought it was perfectly safe within his hands. Starlord is the only person who made the right choice, IMO, the others were completely selfish.

W-wut
Strange knew every possible outcome and knew exactly what he had to do to play his part, and all he could do was hope that everyone else played theirs. They did, because he says at the end "This was the only way Tony...". He knew this was the only possible path to stopping Thanos. Everything is going according to plan.

That's not the part I'm talking about, I mean when Tony and Strange first met, 15 minutes into the movie, looooooong before Strange looked into the future. Tony told Strange "if Thanos wants it, let's just destroy it now" and Strange was like "lol nah I kinda like it, I'll keep it safe." Did I imagine that exchange?

Oh yea. He did do that. Call it wizards intuition I guess. Or arrogance. Whatever. Either way works for the character and makes sense contextually. His character would of course think he could beat some random guy he's never heard of who's just a corporeal being...he's faced Dormamu and won. And Dormamu was like a god pretty much.

What the other guy said. Strange's OP. He was holding his own 1v1 against a Thanos with 4 gems. He outwitted a mystic entity far beyond Thanos' weight class. Why the fuck would/should he destroy one of the 6 cornerstones of reality (that he's specifically been tasked with protecting) over this egocentric raisin?
It only becomes clear that Thanos' more of a threat than that once Strange analyzes the timeline possibilities. And the wisdom he gleaned from that was "the only way to beat him is to give it to him". Which refers you back to the prior posts.

Good points, although how safe is the stone in Thanos's hands? Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with anything he did post-look (my bet is that Tony is integral to fixing things and he had to give up the stone to keep him alive). He was still a pompous dick before then. But I digress - you've convinced me. I have to wonder why that wasn't in the script, though (or if it was, I just don't remember it, don't trust my memory lol). All you need is a single line saying exactly that: "I defeated an entity that's basically a god, I can take down a guy who can't handle his grapes."

>how safe is the stone in Thanos's hands?
We'll find out next year. Although were I to hazard a guess, there's one MAJOR element of the source material that somehow hasn't come up ITT yet.
The big central theme to all of Thanos' plots is that he's the one who stops & undoes them. His recurring bids for perfect, foolproof omnipotence always work, but once he gets there it triggers some Freudian routine deep in his subconscious that causes him to self-sabotage. Because he hates himself and doesn't truly feel that deserve to win. Fun fact: his creator came up with him during a psychology lecture whilst 'Nam was going on.
Maybe they'll diverge into something less cerebral but if it's anything like the comics, the Stones're probably safest with Thanos.
>my bet is that Tony is integral to fixing things and he had to give up the stone to keep him alive
To clarify the above; it's never just that which saves the day. It's just one of a complex combination of factors going off in a domino-effect. This suggestion is another one that I expect to come into play. As is Vision still being conscious inside the Mind Stone.
>I have to wonder why that wasn't in the script, though (or if it was, I just don't remember it, don't trust my memory lol).
I don't think it was textually, by maybe sub-textually. Like the aloof tone he had when dismissing the idea. Or that I've-seen-some-shit mini-rant on the ship where he basically tells the others to KYS.

True, but for now, we do know Strange as stated is clearly set to replace Stark as they’re all lead through a now other wordly realm of comicbook tier lore. I dont expect the Captain Marvel movie to follow up until its final scene if not end credits scene considering its set decades prior. I’m going to rewatch infinity war all year though to re analyze with all this threads info considered because i knew none of this as i have not read the comicbooks.

I expect it to follow-up retroactively, whatever the term may be. Preface?
We only know what we've been told. That movie may tell us more. Like watching the Prequels after Empire Strikes Back.

I just finished watching this and deadpool 2. Deadpool 2 should of waited on their release date tbh. More people would probably go see it if it came out in a few weeks instead of so close to infinity war.

Really loved the avengers movie. was so surprised at how much I liked it. Deadpool 2 was average. Something didn't feel right about it but that's okay. It wasn't bad or anything. I would watch the next one.

Deadpool was given negative reviews in prescreening and they reshot a bunch of shit like the little fellas they are. Suck the toes of the average retard, at the expense of the mature viewer. Makes me fucking sick.

...You saw the movie right? 'Cuz it had that is spades.
>>398521
Literally a business thing. Freddie Got Fingered was notoriously risque and had to edit an "I'm okay, dad!" soundbit into the final scene because violently killing a child automatically ramps the rating up an extra level or something. I get that you're taking the piss but still; one post-credit gag isn't worth the hassle (especially considering how much better the ones they use are).
The only cut I'm aware of is a gag about Disney buying out Fox. Which Reynolds agrees was sorta lazily rushed in there, and which presumably would be done better justice in DP3 anyway.
