Joe and Anthony Russo helped answer a lot of questions that people had about Avengers: Endgame but one thing they never cleared up was a particularly strange moment that happened toward the end of Infinity War. Let me explain.
After Thanos does the Infinity Snap, hence wiping out half of all life, he goes to this otherworldly realm where he sees his daughter Gamora at the same age she was when he first met her. Gamora asks him a simple question.
“Did you do it?”
He responds sadly, knowing that his mission was only successful because he killed her, “Yes.”
Gamora seems on the verge of tears, not upset because he killed her but instead it seems she’s disappointed. Disappointed in the idea that he would be willing to sacrifice something he loved so dearly to do so much harm.
This sequence has always intrigued me because it felt like there was a deeper meaning to that scene and yet Endgame didn’t help elaborate on that scene, nor did the Russo Brothers. And yet, I think I’ve found at least a piece of the answer to this strange scene. Continue reading I Think I’ve Discovered An Infinity Stone Connection
Far away, in the night sky, past the planets of our known galaxy, a simple orange and blue ship are casually flying through space. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (Post-Story Chapter)
Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy seems like a rascally scoundrel with a bombastic attitude at first meeting but there’s a lot more emotional depth to him than meets the eye. Having only one parent to provide for him as a child made losing his beloved mother as a child all the more heartbreaking. He never wanted to show weakness or emotion due to Yondu’s reckless upbringing so he hid all of his sadder emotions behind a careless facade whose main goal was getting rich and finding chicks.
Star-Lord’s kinder side, however, would lead him to becoming a galactic hero and definitely one of my favorite characters in the MCU. Here are his character posters. Enjoy!
Guardians of the Galaxy
With Guardians of the Galaxy being Star-Lord’s debut this poster had to show him in a very heroic light and as the clear leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy so it’s no surprise that this poster looks so awesome. With his blasters in hand and the serious expression on his face Star-Lord looks like a hero fighting alongside to save the galaxy.

Love is a powerful thing. It mends hearts, brings people together, provides happiness to even the most sorrowful, and it is a beautiful thing to observe. Love stories are some of my favorite movie storylines and superhero films always provide a good love story. So, on that note, this is the topic of today’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy.
Vision and Scarlet Witch
While this romance was doomed from the beginning it still is a beautiful relationship nonetheless. Vision, an android looking for purpose and understanding in the world, found love as his relationship with Wanda Maximoff grew. And Wanda, who lost her brother in the Battle of Sokovia, was also trying to find her place among her fellow Avengers. Vision helped fill that void that she possessed and it wasn’t long before her friendship grew into something more.
It’s a shame that we weren’t able to see more with them as a couple but then again, who knows what the future holds.
T’Challa and Nakia
A simple yet perfect relationship. Nakia, as an independent woman, didn’t let her past relationship with T’Challa hold her down to remaining in Wakanda as a Wakandan housewife for the rest of her life. And that is what is so beautiful about this relationship. Their willingness to hear each other out and be there for one another when the need arises is very touching.

Marvel has introduced over two dozen fascinating and fabulous superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the most memorable of these wonderful characters have been, undoubtedly, the Guardians of the Galaxy. While they are clearly a bunch of misfits they have grabbed the hearts of Marvel fans and casual moviegoers around the world with their uncanny heroism. But which of these lovable scoundrels is your favorite? That’s what I’m here to ask you on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.
Groot is practically the Chewbacca of the MCU. He’s big and represents the brute strength of the Guardiab, he speaks a foreign language in the form of “I am Groot” which we, as moviegoers, can’t understand, and he’s awfully sweet and kind (at least every version of Groot except the teenage Groot.) Groot is one of the coolest, most original characters I have ever seen in a movie and that’s why he’s so awesome.
