Except it completely undoes the Agent Carter series. Even though it was a TV series, it was still part of the MCU.

Its been explained that Cap came back after that series, as he didn't want to interfere with history of WWII. I forget where I read that, I think it was and EW article.

He doesn’t want to interfere with WWII, but he’s okay interfering with the rest of history? Because no Peggy’s not gonna do a bunch of the crap she did after the show.

Not saying I hated it, I’m just saying it still creates a splinter Timeline.

And honestly, I’m okay with undoing anything and everything that happened in the TV Series. Agents of SHIELD has sucked ever since season 2, and I always felt Agent Carter was way over rated. And while the Netflix shows were pretty great, the facts that they (a) had zero interaction with the films proper definitely calls into question their actual connections to the MCU and (b) they’ve all been cancelled anyway leaves me with little desire to see them interact with the Avengers.

The last time a movie completely took my breath away I was a 6 year old watching Star Wars for the first time in 77. As an adult I am speechless to the utter epicness of this movie, especially the fight. We saw it Thursday night then again yesterday and while I loved it the first time, the second time I loved it even more. We are going to see it again with my middle daughter next week.
Definitely worth the hype!

Well, the Russo's said in an interview that Cap lived with Peggy in an alt timeline, so I guess there we all go.


Anyway, I saw this last night. I wasn't going to, but I was bored, home alone, and had nothing better to do, so I dropped the ridiculous 10 bucks and watched it.

It is glorious. I literally have zero problems with this. Not one, and that is tough for me to do, as I'm typically a cranky nitpicker. I think it was such a great wrap up to the Infinity storyline. I enjoyed it so much, that just a few minutes in, I was so caught up, that I completely forgot that I had read spoilers and just went along with the ride.

Just a few of my highlights:

"That is America's Ass"

"So he's an idiot"

"Step aside, Lebowski"

"So Back to the Future all bullshit?"

As for some of the popular compaints:
Old Cap.

While some hate this, I loved it. Steve has always felt a bit out of place in the future. Every appearance he as made has eluded to this. Going back, and getting his happy ending made since. See, he never got to go home at the end of the war. His war just continued and grew larger. I never watched the Peggy Carter series, so I don't have any feelings that way, but as I mentioned above, the Russo's state he lived with Peggy in an alt timeline, so there is that.

I am Ironman.

Tony needed a rest, and while those he loved were in danger, that would never happen. He was always trying to fix what he saw as the mistakes of his past, so making the ultimate sacrifice makes since. It sucks so much he didn't get to watch his daughter or surrogate son grow up, but at least they will. His legacy will carry on.

Girl power.


While this scene did feel a little forced and out of place, at the same time, it didn't interrupt the story, and was a nice little nod to all those little girls out there looking for heroes. It wasn't over reaching, and it wasn't in your face, and it didn't interrupt the flow of the movie. In my opinion, its something that people need to let go and get over.

Sam getting the shield.

This just fits. In the MCU, up to this point, Bucky simply hasn't done enough to earn or prove his worth to carry the shield. Sam has been with Cap almost since he came back, just shortly after the battle of New York. He has been a dedicated soldier, and while Bucky might be Cap's oldest friend, Sam is his best friend.

Black Widow and the high dive of destiny.

Again, this fits perfectly with Nat's character. She too, was looking to correct past wrongs. Also, I'm sorry to all the folks on here who are not parents, but yes, and parents life is worth more. Does not mean that Nat deserved to die in any way, it just means that Clint had more to go home to. Her death is super heroic, and not a slight on women's rights in any way. Anybody who thinks so is a bit of an idiot.

The Big Thorbowski.

This was just great, seriously, how could anybody have an issue with this? Thor suffered a lot, and is not the type to handle loss well.

Smart Hulk.

Some have said that the Hulk didn't smash enough. Well, of course not. This isn't the Incredible Hulk, this is Bruce Hulk Banner. That rage that led to the smashing is gone, so of course Hulk would not do as much. Sure, smashing would have been fun to watch, but this fits the story being told. Bruce is a super nerd, not a warrior.


I don't see how this movie could have been any better, honestly, seen in terms of the MCU as it stands. I really believe this movie had everything. It even came close to giving me one of my favorite comic panels of all time from the Avengers series about 20 years ago. Ultron is taking over, and the fight comes down to Cap, Thor, and Ironman. They stand in front of him, and Thor says: "Ultron, we would have words with thee". While Thor didn't say that, he, Cap, and Tony did confront Thanos in the final battle. Marvels 'big three'.


Cap swinging Thor's hammer. Perfection.

@Ironhidensh: I agree with you 100%.

I watched it for the 3rd time last night, and I keep loving it even more as I keep watching it. Despite the 3 hour runtime, I haven't felt myself get bored with any part of the movie 3 times in. And I will be watching it a 4th time next weekend with my girlfriend, and there are no complaints from me about doing that again.

I also keep noticing more for each viewing. It might take 10 viewings or so to really catch everything.

And yeah, my favorite super hero ever had the best line of the entire 22 movie stretch. That hero lived up to my hype and more.

I. Am. Iron Man.

More in this specific ( or similar) situation. Clint has more to go home to than Nat. It should be noted that Nat very much shares this mindset/view point. Nat's death has less collateral damage. That doesn't mean it doesn't suck or hurt, but there it is.

And Nat knew that.

She was willing to do everything to get the family back together, and to bring all the snapped back. She was willing to lay it down, and she did not want Clint to lose his family, or his family to lose him. She looked at the 2 of them, and it would not be easy to let your best friend kill themselves either way

My first thought when he first stopped her was "Why? You have a family!" but only because they were pretty much equal in every other aspect. Maybe he felt guilty having done what he did for 5 years and thought he had to pay for it?

Well, being a true hero, Barton would be willing to make that sacrifice anyway. Same thing with our armed forces, they have loved and families but they know that they may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom and to protect his loved ones.

For the first time ever, I've placed a pre-order for a Marvel item! And in this case, 3. my Iron Squad will be complete, and I will have my favorite super hero's infinity gauntlet!

I really enjoyed seeing Rescue in the film, even if it was only for a brief bit at the end. It was awesome to see a whole live action Iron Squad. I also decided that Nebula officially counts as a member of the squad too. She went well with both Tony and Rhodey, and I may have to get a legends version of her too to go with them.

And this gauntlet is sweet, I wanted to get the Infinity Gaunlet last year but didn't, and now that my favorite hero made one in his style, I'm glad I waited

I just saw Dark Phoenix.

I liked it. It's not a typical X-Men movie, and definitely not a typical superhero movie. But it was pretty good. Not as much action as the previous movies, and I disagree with it being touted as a great ending to the X-Men universe for now. But as a standalone film about a girl struggling with something inside her it was intriguing. It was 2 hours long but it flew by pretty fast. I am a fan of the comic story, as well as the 90s cartoon, but this movie had very little to do with that. I would have loved to see that story told, but as a substitute, this wasn't bad. I still think it's the weakest in the 4-movie series with the younger cast, I would put it on par with The Last Stand. Hopefully the actual comic story of the Phoenix will be put on screen sooner than later, but some other stories have to be told first, I guess. Nonetheless, I recommend this movie for at least 1 watch.
