How Women Have Evolved in Marvel: Part 3

For the past two days, I have shared with you all the evolution of Marvel’s heroines in the last eleven years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Last time I wrote this piece I only had to write two parts but now, with Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel showing women in even more inspiring ways, I had to extend this series to a three-part ordeal. So, on that note, here is the current evolution of these outstanding heroines.

2018

2018 was a GREAT year in the way women were presented in the Marvel films, starting with Black Panther. We got to see a beautiful, benevolent, strong queen of Wakanda in Queen Mother Ramonda who is just as capable of fighting as the powerful female warriors around her.

Where Do I Rank ‘Avengers: Endgame’ in the MCU?

Avengers: Endgame was a great film, no doubt about that. In fact, it’s easily one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. But where does it fall in the MCU? Is it my favorite of all time or has another Marvel film not been able to be surpassed? That’s what I’m here to share with you all. Enjoy!

1. Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is, in my opinion, utter perfection. Infinity War, so far, is the Empire Strikes Back of the MCU, meaning it can’t be easily topped. The storytelling is phenomenal, the action scenes are stellar, the romance is actually necessary, and the ending of this movie is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Infinity War surprised me in ways that I couldn’t have seen coming whereas Endgame turned out just as I expected. And that’s why Infinity War is still my favorite Marvel movie of all time.

Throwback Friday: Doctor Strange’s Time Travel Is the Most Important Moment in ‘Infinity War’

At the end of February, I wrote a post featuring Doctor Strange, the moment he went forward in time to see what was going to happen, and how impactful that small part is in the whole scheme of things. Now, looking back, I’m getting chills (and a bit teary) just reading this old post. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

I love Avengers: Infinity War. I have watched it countless times and found a way to enjoy it with every viewing. Avengers: Endgame is coming out in two months (thank the maker) and so as we grow closer to the event of the year I’m trying to find hidden references or tantalizing easter eggs that’ll maybe give a hint toward the events of Endgame.

In my latest viewing of Infinity War, the scene involving Doctor Strange’s time travel hit me because of its striking importance.

Doctor Strange foresaw 14, 000, 605 possible futures and only one version of the future saw them winning the fight against Thanos. While that would seem heartening the expression on Strange’s face says it all.

He knows what is going to happen and judging from the look he’s wearing it’s not going to be good. We think the worst has happened due to Thanos’s Infinity Snap but there is much more hardship coming and it’s going to be a doozy. Beloved heroes are going to die and this time they won’t be the subject of imminent resurrection.

This scene, while simple, is hands down, in my opinion, the single most important moment in Infinity War. And while we won’t completely understand the importance of this scene until we watch Endgame I’m sure there will be a day when looking back, this moment will be even more chilling than it is now.

Oh, and by the way, Tony Stark is so doomed. The way Doctor Strange looks at him as if he can see the very moment in time when he will perish is frightening (and saddening) indeed.

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

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.
