Is Scarlet Witch’s Turn to Villainy On the Horizon?

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?

Throwback Friday: Here Are the Ways the Dead Heroes in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Can Return in ‘Avengers 4’

Before a movie comes out I always like to predict what’s going to happen in a film and I’m so GLAD I ran across this post I wrote back in May of last year. It’s kind of fascinating and that’s why I wanted to share it with you for this week’s Throwback Friday. Enjoy!

As I’m sure you all know by now-

(If you don’t know then discontinue reading this NOW because there are MAJOR spoilers ahead.)

-a lot of people died in Avengers: Infinity War. I mean, a LOT! So many in fact that it’s kind of obvious that they’ll be brought back in the next Avengers film but here’s the question: How can they be brought back from the dead to return to fight Thanos in a last battle worthy of this Avengers finale? Well, that’s what I’m here to theorize and I hope you enjoy. 🙂 Continue reading Throwback Friday: Here Are the Ways the Dead Heroes in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Can Return in ‘Avengers 4’

It’s a Fact: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Is the Russo Brothers’ Weakest MCU Film

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 SoldierCaptain 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

Throwback Friday: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Was A Fun Ride, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Is Going To Be An Emotional Rollercoaster

On April 4 of this year, I wrote a post highlighting the emotional differences between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Looking back, I’m surprised at how accurate I was in predicting how much of a cry fest Endgame would end up being. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, I thought this would be the perfect flashback post to read. Enjoy!

Avengers: Infinity War is one of the few films that I can watch over and over again and still enjoy with every single viewing. It’s ranked #60 (or at least it used to be) on IMDb’s Top #250 movies with a ranking of 8.5 out of 10 and it totally deserves it. The movie is amazing. It’s one of the easiest movies to watch multiple times because there’s so much to love about it.

We get to enjoy all of our favorite heroes. The action scenes are phenomenal. The music is amazing. The emotional levels of this film are truly stirring. And the end is just…the best.

Avengers: Infinity War is one of the greatest stories I have ever witnessed onscreen. There are comedy and suspense, riveting dialogue and romance, triumph and tragedy, all locked into a film that feels like your classic superhero movie but manages to present a shocking twist as the heroes actually end up losing to the villain, Thanos.

And that’s why Infinity War is so great!

My Sister’s Opinion: The Difference Between Thanos in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Thanos is a stunningly complex character. That’s why Avengers: Infinity War was such a great film; because it explored his journey in a way where, by the end of the movie, he is the winner and The Avengers have been terribly defeated, some even turned to nothing but dust before our very eyes.

And the reason for Thanos’s domination is for one reason, which is evident once watching Endgame: he was 2018 Thanos. I call him Wise Thanos.

Wise Thanos hails from a time when he has been defeated by The Avengers in 2012. When his puppet Ronan betrayed him to claim the Power Stone…and who was immediately squashed by the Guardians of the Galaxy, who he quickly learned about. Wise Thanos has lost his greatest nuisance in Loki. Both his daughters, Gamora and Nebula, are gone.

One has betrayed him and is part of the Guardians of the Galaxy, showing her allegiances have changed drastically. And Nebula almost prevailed in ending his life.

This Wise Thanos is the one who, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, says, “Fine, I’ll do it myself.”

“Myself” is the keyword in this instance. No longer was he allowing his Black Order and his daughters or Loki to gather the Infinity Stones. He took the initiative, finding each and every one of them, and taking them for his own despite the mighty heroes and forces that stood in his way. All those years of conquest and destruction were parlayed for the conclusion of his mission.

Then, you have 2014 Thanos, who I call Egotistic Thanos. Continue reading My Sister’s Opinion: The Difference Between Thanos in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’
