Throwback Friday: My Experience Watching ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Oh my goodness everybody, Avengers: Infinity War is no joke! I’ve watched all of the Marvel movies and this is undoubtedly not only the best one but truly the entire culmination of the last eighteen movies. I sat in that movie theater waiting in silent anguish for the movie to start after all of the many trailers and once it did it latched on and didn’t let go literally from beginning to end. The audience was incredible. There were many laugh-out-loud (and silently funny) moments that had the audience in stitches. There were some fantastic character moments that just had the audience cheering with excitement. And then there were some legitimately heartbreaking moments that caused quite a bit of sniffling in the theater. When I walked out of that movie after its two hours and thirty-two-minute long run I was stunned. I felt like a young woman who had just seen the most amazing Marvel superhero movie that she had ever seen and couldn’t believe how shocking the film’s ending was…because that’s exactly what I was. My feet were lead, my eyebrows were furrowed in stunned confusion, and my mind was racing in an utter “WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!”

As I was walking out of that movie theater I saw this super awesome display for Solo: A Star Wars Story and I just had to take a picture with it.

Yeah. It’s just me sitting in the Millennium Falcon cockpit with my Star Wars buddies. 😊

Isn’t that an awesome display?! I’ve seen some cool displays in my time but this one takes the cake. Just imagining myself sitting in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon was an awesome experience. So then after that, I went to find the Infinity War display so I can take a new movie photo and when I did I was so excited.

This is the look of someone who just came out of Avengers: Infinity War. Yeah, it was a ride.

That expression on my face isn’t the look of disappointment. It’s the face of someone who doesn’t know what just happened. I’m telling you, the end of Infinity War is so unexpected and out of this world that usually an audience roars with applause at the end of a really good movie but this audience was mostly silent with the occasional murmur. All of us were legitimately stunned at what had just transpired.

All in all, Avengers: Infinity War will be a movie experience that I will undoubtedly remember for quite a while and it’s given Avengers 4 a very high bar to try to surpass.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Iron Man

Iron Man. It is the film that started it all. The cinematic universe that would go on to making $17 billion! dollars through its twenty-one films so far. Now the end of this fantastic story is upon our doorsteps, meaning the end of Iron Man’s journey has arrived as well. Thirty-one characters in the MCU I have featured in this series over the last four weeks. Dozens of posters I have shared with you all depicting these characters in their most epic light. Now the time has arrived for the final post in this series and who better to end this fantastic ride than the man who began this incredible journey; Iron Man.

So, on that note, here are his amazing character posters.

The Avengers

This was the first time Iron Man had to stop a supervillain’s master plan with a team but he was more than willing to be the hero he needed to be to save the world. The thing that is most interesting about this poster is Iron Man’s armor. It’s so much different than it is now. Wow.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Black Panther

A few years ago I knew nothing about Black Panther. Now I can’t imagine the world without him or the land that he originates from, Wakanda. Losing Black Panther in Infinity War was definitely VERY shocking and…I’m just waiting to see him return. Today on the final day of this series, we look back at his individual character posters since his debut in the MCU. Enjoy!

Captain America: Civil War

T’Challa looks like he’s looking for revenge on this poster. But can you blame him? He loved his father King T’Chaka. To lose him in the way that he did is definitely gutwrenching. I loved that his introduction into the MCU was an extensive one and I can’t wait to see his story continue in the future.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Captain America

Before I became a Marvel fan I knew nothing about these superheroes. I vaguely knew who Captain America was but I didn’t like him very much because he just seemed like a wack superhero. I mean, come on. The red, white, and blue colors, the wings on the helmet, my only response to the character was yikes. The first time I saw Captain America in live-action was in The Avengers and at the time I didn’t like him. He seemed too serious, his suit was as tacky as it could get, and I just hadn’t warmed up to the character. But, after he was redeemed in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I was a bona fide Captain America fan.

Now, five years later, the end of his journey has arrived and it’s kind of really sad. I mean, he’s such a fantastic character and to think that this is the end is just…wow, it’s a lot to think about.

So, on that note, let’s take a look at his amazing character posters through all four Avengers films. Enjoy!

The Avengers

Steve Rogers would return to save the world with a new outfit inspired by the tighter, more spangly suit he wore in The First Avenger when he was used as practically a mascot for the army. While of course, the suit could be better (MUCH BETTER) he still manages to look heroic on this character poster.
