A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Hawkeye

Avengers: Endgame is coming out in less than a month (YAY!!!!) and as you can see I am clearly excited for this movie. One of the most fun things about preparing for a movie is to see the film’s various posters and Marvel is fantastic at delivering fantastic posters worth getting excited about.

With this being the finale to the Infinity Saga so much is at stake and the story is set to drop some legitimate bombshell moments that we won’t see coming because so much secrecy is being kept around this movie. But, the countdown has begun and what’s not a better way to celebrate these last few weeks until the main event than by looking back at the evolution of the characters’ posters for The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy films?

Today I’m highlighting Hawkeye, the character that I’m actually most excited to see in Avengers: Endgame. Enjoy!

The Avengers

The Avengers wasn’t Hawkeye’s debut (he first made an appearance in Thor) but it was the first time he got to play a starring role in the MCU. While he was clearly awesome because of his remarkable skill with a bow and some arrows he didn’t have much of a storyline, making him one of the least interesting Avengers.

His poster, however, is pretty darn cool. See the S.H.I.E.L.D logo on his vest? It shows how far this story has come, for S.H.I.E.L.D doesn’t even exist anymore. Wow. And he wears the cool right arm wrap in this film making him look undeniably awesome.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

When Hawkeye returned in The Avengers sequel he had more of a story to latch onto. We learned he had a family who was being kept far away from the prying eyes of anyone who may want to hurt them. And we learned that he’s the defacto leader of The Avengers; keeping every hero in check when they need stabilizing, hence acting as the main sense of cohesion between the team.

In this poster, the S.H.I.E.L.D logo is gone, the right arm wrap is history and his clothes now contain a sort of maroon color to them now along with the simple black, giving his outfit a little more appeal.

Avengers: Endgame

And there’s finally his poster for the latest Avengers film, Avengers: Endgame. He didn’t have for Infinity War because he was MIA but he has one for this movie and I am so excited.

Just looking at this poster compared to the last two it’s very obvious that Clint Barton has been through some things while he’s been away. His hair is different and more rock-and-roll looking (which I really like), his expression is tense, angry, sad, and determined all in one simple look, and it’s clear from the slight bit of clothing we see in the poster that he’s coming back not as a simple spy but as a warrior.

😁😁😁😁

So, these are Hawkeye’s posters from The Avengers to Avengers: Endgame. Tomorrow I will focus on one of the deceased heroes; Mantis.

Until then I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magnificent day.

Mark Hamill May Grace His Presence on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

Since Luke Skywalker’s surprise death in The Last Jedi Mark Hamill has been very vocal about his disagreement with the treatment of Luke Skywalker in the critically-acclaimed sequel to The Force Awakens. And while he will make one final appearance as the fabled Luke Skywalker in the still untitled Episode IX his time as the character has pretty much come to a close. But it seems that Disney’s time with Mr. Hamill may not be over yet.

Recently on the entertainment airways rumors have begun to spread that Mark Hamill may be playing Rocket’s creator in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Yeah, you heard correctly.

That weird mystery person who Rocket mentioned in the first Guardians of the Galaxy that created him may make an appearance in the third GOTG (Guardians of the Galaxy) film and that individual could be portrayed by one of the coolest actors in the world; Mark Hamill. Brilliant!

Besides Miles Morales, Who’s My Favorite Spider-Person in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Days after watching the film for the first time I’m still buzzing with happiness about the movie. I’ve already written two reviews but now I want to delve into the details of the film.

One of the things that I loved about the movie was the inclusion of the several versions of Peter Parker. There was Peni Parker, an anime-style Spider-Man who originated from the year 3145 and had a robot powered by a radioactive spider. There was Peter Porker, a Looney-Tune-esque talking pig that worked for the Daily Bugle and kicked butt. Gwen Stacy is the female version of the classic Peter Parker. She plays drums in a band, she’s not into having friends, but she’s totally awesome at saving the world. There’s Spider-Man Noir, a crime-fighting detective from the 1930s’ who likes to fight Nazis. And finally, there’s older Peter Parker, a mentally beat-down, fatter version of the classic Peter Parker who has faced more than the obstacles of bad guys, he has faced the trials of life and it has left him in a rut.

All of these individual Spider-People are interesting enough to have their own movie, and yet they were all introduced in this film, making it that much more fun to watch.

Of these five Spider-People, however, who is my favorite?
