Now I haven't seen the last one yet, meant to but never found time, but you mean to tell me their connections run deeper then just the principal actors and the subtle nods to each other? Was this revealed in the third film or just what's being said in interviews?

Just the Cornetto. It's the only thing that's consistent (aside from the flavour) throughout all three movies.

Marvel slayed the buildup, everything worked perfectly, and it has paid off tremendously.

What saddens me is the people complaining about Infinity War as if it is a one shot movie, not part 1 of 2 of the big end to the first 3 phases of Marvel movies that slowly but surely built up on one another in spectacular fashion.

Also, I have an opinion: Iron Man has done his best work in movies that aren't named after him

It's something they've been working on in his current solo book.


Not only that,but its something that goes way back from the original Infinity Gauntlet Saga.Then in the comic version of Infinity War,he essential to saving the universe,going after what the cause with the help of (somewhat hesitant) heroes.

Is this new ongoing solo book worth it?I thoroughly believe Thanos is at his best when written by Jim Starlin.

If you're a fan of Thanos and have been for a few years, maybe.

It's really just about Thanos re-establishing his place in the universe after his stay in the Cancerverse.

I'll agree with this though, I would like to see more about the mandarin after the hail to the king short. Iron man 2, I didn't think was that bad but I was expecting more from whiplash after what I read before (I think the actor was as well) bit it was cool to see iron man and war machine fighting alongside each other. Iron man 3 though...It just seemed pointless and the big reveal? Yeah the fact that marvel essentially back peddled on it shows that even they wished they could go back and alter it.

Motto: "A man who wants nothing is invincible."
My GF (nerd, but not comic book nerd) was shocked and saddened by all the deaths, obviously and especially Peter's. Granted it was a sad moment, but I just laughed "oh dear, with this many deaths and another movie to go, trust me, they'll be back" :lol:

And because of that fact, I thought killing Peter was a tricky tear jerking cop-out, but a Youtuber pointed out something rather interesting. In the original Infinity Gauntlet comic, Spidey does what he can, then gets sidelined for the finale because against a cosmic GOD, what can he really do? So rather than be sidelined in the next movie (and Climax to said story) it was much more impactful to kill him off as opposed to lamely sideline him due to uselessness.

Also yes, it was surprising to see Strange hand over his stone to save Tony, but it was pretty easy to surmise that he'd only have done so if it led to the one scenario where they all live.


All in all, it was a phenomenal movie. And I was mostly shocked and impressed with, for how many characters the story had to juggle, how cohesive it was. I'll likely have more to say, but s'all I got for now.

That's my feeling too. 1 was a good origin story, 2 was my favorite (I am a War machine and triangle chest piece fan). and then 3 kinda really sucked. I don't like it that much. Iron Man has been more enjoyable in the Avengers, Spider Man, and even Civil War.

You're telling me man. So much yowza.

And Shajaki, that's something interesting to bring up, and I like it. Spidey's death was the one part of the movie where I cried, it hurt

All those deaths meant nothing to me, considering the majority of them already have sequels of their own movies in the pipe line. Image

Yes! What was the point of rescuing the downtrodden of Asgard, only to have them all BRUTALLY SLAIN, OFF SCREEN, IN THE OPENING MINUTES OF THE MOVIE?! I thought they would establish an Asgardian colony on earth ala Thor post Civil War.

Be careful, if you're white you're not supposed to say anything bad about anyone black or else you'll lose your job and have to humiliate yourself publicly with an apology on the news.

He wanted to destroy half of all living things in the universe. He wanted to do it to stop overpopulation as he thought it was unsustainable.

I haven't seen black panther yet, probably have to wait till it comes on blu ray now.

It's a shame it's been confirmed that Adam warlock won't appear in the next avengers film, he was a big part of the original infinity gauntlet storyline, still in guess we don't need to wait too long for guardians 3.

Is the Hulk in the Avengers “Hulk Light?”

When are we going to get the World War Hulk that overpowers The Avengers, X-men, Fantastic Four, etc....all combined?

He should have crushed Thanos.

And why is Captain Marvel so anticipated? Is she the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Universe?

I feel this came out wrong. I understand why this movie was so amazing for so many, I do. I'm happy for that and content to take anything from it. I just mean I don't have that connection to this film, so for me it was just another marvel movie. Very well done, enjoyable, and above the average, but no Civil War or Ragnorok.

You know, from people I've talked to, civil war is divisive. I mean it's not like age of ultron which everyone rounds upon (except I like it, it's no where near the best and is towards the bottom of the pile, but it's a guilty pleasure). They critercise it's balance of characters and about what they're fighting about. My family moaned about it being one fight after another.

Great... another thread for Duragrip to ruin.... >:oP

It's funny about Black Panther though. I felt compelled to say it was great, but didn't really think so. Which like Densh don't get me wrong, I still thought was a wonderfully enjoyable installment, but not one of the greatest Marvel flicks it was hyped up to be.

However, I did end up seeing it a second time, and for some reason was able to get into it much more than the first viewing. I rank it higher now, and my main complaint is just that the villain was pretty much a copy paste evil Black Panther. Shattered Glass almost :lol:

Yeah, pretty much all of my issues revolve around Killmonger. I saw the character as a complete waste of Jordan's talents. I really think the kid is gonna be one of the greats, if not the great, of his acting generation.

Also, even for a sci-fi superhero movie, I find the idea of such an advanced and prosperous nation like wakanda staying Biden ridiculous. :-P In an easily overlooked good way if course.

I didn't mind Black Panther, though I agree it's far from the best of the Marvel movies. What made it different is it was more of a sequel type movie rather than an origin movie and just served to introduce us to other characters and Wakanda itself.

With Infinity Gauntlet being the last of the phase coming out next year, I would like to see Marvel release every movie starting with the 1st Iron Man and ending with Infinity Gauntlet on Blu-ray in 1 giant set next year.

I just saw Deadpool 2.

It was pretty good, on par with the first one as far as humor and vulgarity goes. However, the first film was a more coherent story while this felt like a collection of skits. Nonetheless, it was entertaining. And finally we get to see Colossus fight Juggernaut! There are other X-Men cameos as well. I definitely recommend it. Of course stay through the credits, as Wade does some serious reconning.
