Phase 4 is fast approaching and that means new stories will have to be told. One of the fascinating trends of the first three phases was seeing villainous characters end up becoming allies of the heroes. Loki, Nebula, and Ghost are examples of this trend. What if this time around, for the next three phases, we get another exciting plot twist; the heroes becoming villains.
Wanda Maximoff started as a villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron but would become an ally of The Avengers. We saw her side with Captain America against Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War. We saw her fall in love with Vision and have to kill him just as quickly in order to save the universe from Thanos. And we saw her come back from the dead and fight Thanos in an epic one-on-one moment that left me pumping my fist in the air with joy.
But now what? Where will her story take her in the future?

When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe romance may not be something that immediately comes to mind but the relationships built and established in this franchise are some of the greatest we’ve seen in cinema. And, at the top of the romance list, are two couples that have melted our hearts over the years; Tony Stark and Pepper Potts and Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter. These love stories were present all the way until Avengers: Endgame, with both stories concluding in two very different yet very satisfying ways.
For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I figured this would be the perfect topic, considering that the next few weeks will probably be filled with Star Wars content considering that the final trailer will drop tomorrow night. Enjoy! Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite: Tony and Pepper or Steve and Peggy?
Captain America, our beloved patriotic hero who found his way into our hearts, if not immediately, then gradually over the years. Unlike Iron Man, Captain America did not perish at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame but he did pass over the mantle to Sam Wilson/Falcon to become the new Captain America in the coming years. It’s sad to think we won’t have Steve Rogers anymore in the next few phases of the MCU and yet…maybe we will still have him around. Not in a literal sense but in a figurative sense. You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, let me elaborate.
As you may remember Steve Rogers was tasked with putting all of the stones back but instead of returning to his friends like he should’ve he decided to stay in the past and live out his life with Peggy.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier Peggy tells the reporter in a video: “That was a difficult winter. A blizzard had trapped half our battalion behind the German line. Steve, Captain Rogers, he fought his way through a HYDRA blockade that had pinned down our allies for months. He saved over a thousand men. Including the man who would become my husband as it turns out. Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.”
Immediately we assumed that she had gone on and married some guy in the army that Steve had saved but apparently that didn’t happen. A particular sentence in this scene now stands out to me. It’s when Peggy says: “Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.” Continue reading Captain America May Return to the MCU, Just Not in the Way We Think
Throughout the MCU the characters have evolved in more ways than one. At one time Thor had the dazzling golden locks (or dazzling golden wig.) Then he had short hair. And then he was, in lamer terms, fat. These heroes and heroines have become different people over the course of the MCU and one of the greatest evolving characters is Black Widow. Her evolution is literally shown through the journey of her hairstyles. From long and curly to blond and cropped, Black Widow’s hair has had quite the evolution and this evolution will continue to evolve even in her standalone film which is set to arrive next May.
With that in mind, I will surely have to update this list after Black Widow, but for now, here’s my ranking of her hairstyles from worst to best.
I love Black Widow’s role in Iron Man 2 but her hairstyle during her off-the-chain action sequence in the film is a little…distracting. I understand that her hair was like this at this particular part because she had just pulled it out of a bun so it fell around her face in these curls but like I said before, it was distracting away from how awesome she really is. Continue reading Ranking All of Black Widow’s Hairstyles; from Worst to Best
Avengers: Endgame broke box-office record after box-office record after box-office record because it brought about the end of a BEAUTIFUL era that we followed and fell in love with for the last eleven years. After revisiting Captain America: Civil War for the first time after seeing Endgame my appreciation for Civil War only grew but I soon realized that Avengers: Endgame is hands down the weakest of the Russo Brothers’ four movies by a long shot and I’ll tell you why.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War all have one very important thing in common; they are all unpredictable. Continue reading It’s a Fact: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Is the Russo Brothers’ Weakest MCU Film
