A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Scarlet Witch

When Scarlet Witch debuted in Avengers: Age of Ultron I was so thrilled. At the time there weren’t many female superheroes (there was only Black Widow, Gamora, and Nebula) and so to have another heroine join The Avengers and for her to be so cool I was utterly ecstatic. And that’s why I’m so excited to take a closer look at her posters. Enjoy!

I love this poster. Her hands, glowing with power, highlight her evidently powerful abilities, her outfit looks fantastic and gives her a total Scarlet Witch vibe, and she looks ready for whatever lies ahead.

My Review of ‘BlacKkKlansman’

There were quite a few films last year that was nominated for Best Picture that I wanted to see, one of them of course being, BlacKkKlansman. The film would go on to win Spike Lee’s first Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and now that I’ve seen the movie I understand why.

BlacKkKlansman isn’t as depressing or sometimes horrifying as your typical film depicting the violent, racist acts of those in the 20th century and yet it’s all the more impactful because it brings to light the very struggles that transpire in this country on a daily basis through a true story that happened over forty! years ago.

If you’re not familiar with the film or what it’s about let me give you a quick rundown of the movie. BlacKkKlasnman follows the true story of the first African-American police officer in Colorado Springs named Ron Stallworth and his investigation/infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan. Because he would set up meetings with members of the Ku Klux Klan on the phone he would then send fellow detective, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to conduct the meetings with the Ku Klux Klan in person. Hence, these two detectives singlehandedly infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan and placed themselves in the history books.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Thor

The mighty Asgardian God of Thunder, Thor has had an amazing journey so far. He lost his power after his father Odin exiled him to Earth to get a hard lesson. That is where he met Jane Foster, a scientist who helped show him that there was more to life than just fighting. He would go on to become a more benevolent hero, joining The Avengers to stop his brother Loki from conquering Earth, saving Earth from the hungry appetite of the Dark Elf, Malekith, saving Earth yet again with The Avengers to halt Ultron’s plan of earthly extinction, fulfilling the Ragnarok prophecy to save his people and defeat his evil sister Hela, and finally, facing Thanos. That is where his winning streak came to a skidding end, leaving Thor utterly stunned by the extent of his failure.

Will Thor be able to finally avenge Loki, Heimdall, the dead Asgardians, and all of the poor victims of The Snap? Only time will tell. Until then, let’s take a look at his fascinating character posters. Enjoy!

The Avengers

Thor looks undeniably heroic but the armor and outfit definitely needed some upgrading. What I do love, however, is the sleeves of the armor and the bracers. Very, very beautiful looking.

The Chosen One: Chapter Seven

Captain Taulin’s Words

Phasma was angry. Angrier than she had felt in a very long time. The First Order presence that had been assigned to Maris Sutorn to slowly overwhelm the inhabitants of the planet until they were as submissive as mining slaves had been destroyed in one fell swoop, leaving the planet as a lost opportunity for the First Order. And it was all because of General Hux and his pathetic leading.

He had fought, cheated, betrayed, and even killed to try to assume the power of Supreme Leader and now that he had it he was what Phasma had always known he was; a coward. A man who was not willing to show the brutality of the First Order and instead wanted to play politics with senators at roundtable meetings.

Phasma didn’t like politics. Her method of diplomacy was to fight, to annihilate, and to conquer all that dared stand in her way. If she was the Supreme Leader of the First Order things would be much different. The Resistance would be decimated, their pitiful stirrings of hope demolished until the mere mention of the Resistance would seem like a curse to anyone who uttered their existence.
