Avengers: Infinity War Trailer.

Holy Santa Claus shit. Christmas has come early folks! I’m sorry for cursing.

Comic book fans rejoice. Remember at the beginning of AmericanPie, when Jim is trying to watch the illegal porn? And it’s all fuzzy and distorted? That was every comic book fan watching the leaked Infinity War trailer from San Diego Comic-Con. For the last four months since that trailer wowed audiences at SDCC, simpletons like myself have been begging Marvel to release a trailer for the highly anticipated conclusion to the Avengers trilogy. Well it’s finally here, they finally listened to all of our complaints. The Infinity War trailer has arrived, and my god is it glorious. Put away those tube socks, because before you know it this will be in front of our very eyes in a theatre near you.

“Fun isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe. But this, this does put a smile on my face” – Thanos.

So that was pretty amazing right? It only took Marvel 4 months to finally drop a trailer for Infinity War, and they did not disappoint. So many questions to consider after watching it. Let’s just get it out of the way. I’ve been waiting almost ten years to see Thanos and it lived up to the hype and build up. I really don’t see anyone beating that guy. He’s menacing, he’s pissed off and most improbably he seems to give zero you know whats. They certainly packed this trailer full, considering it is only 2 mins and 24 seconds. We get to see all of our heroes, some more than others, but remember the movie doesn’t come out for another six months….WHY GOD WHY!?

Thanos is on a mission to collect all the infinity stones it looks like and he doesn’t care who or what gets in his way. No armoured Spider-Man. Not the Hulk, Iron Man or whoever else the Avengers can throw at him. Sorry Vision your time looks to be up, Loki is doing Loki things and handing over a stone to the Mad Titan himself. There appears to be an all out war going on in Wakanda. My guess is that’s where the final infinity stone will be located so they will stop at nothing to protect it. Captain America has an incredible beard, so you know that means this movie will get serious. Thor looks like he has made some new friends, meeting up with the Guardians, not by choice I’d imagine.

Again it looks like Tony Stark will be the focale point in the movie and it almost looks like he’s given up the Iron Man persona, but that is just me speculating. Maybe he semi-retires after the events of Civil War. I just can’t get over how incredible Thanos sounds and looks, kudos to you Josh Brolin. He even looks like you!

I can’t wait 6 months for this movie to come out, I will watch this trailer about 100 times today. Infinity War is shaping up to be everything the MCU has promised it would be for the last decade. Really well done Russo Brothers.

‘Thor Ragnarok’ Yes Please

We get a talking Hulk, need I say more?

I know that’s a really big photo, but look how AMAZING that poster is!!! I also find it hilarious that Hulk is the biggest and most obvious thing on a Thor movie poster. Well played Marvel, well played.

I regret not putting this movie on my most anticipated list back in January, because my god it looks b-e-a-utiful. Seriously though, Hulk is talking, and he doesn’t sound that stupid. This is pure awesomeness in every sense of the word. Throughout the years, Hulk has just been getting better looking with every movie, and this is by far the best Hulk to date. He even got a new hair cut, how cute. He wanted to be matching hair cut buddies with his BFF Thor.

Like Chris Hemsworth was literally born to play Thor, and even with his new hairdo, I’m all in on this. The first trailer was really good, and now Marvel drops this bomb on us and they are just getting warmed up tonight. Holy shit, this trailer is good. Thor telling Hulk about his day, is so funny, it reminds me of some 21 Jump Street type banter. So this looks like a buddy cop movie starring Thor and Hulk, like just take my money Marvel, seriously just take it all.

Calling it now, Cate Blanchett will be the first great Marvel villain, since well, Loki. Who also happens to be in this movie, and doing awesome brotherly type things with Thor. But Cate looks badass as Hela, the god of death, and I’m really excited to potentially have a Marvel movie with a fantastic villain in it. The colours in this movie are quite something, my god it’s just full of beautiful colours. Everyone seems to be having a ton of fun, and I honestly don’t know how Marvel keeps pulling it off. Thor has had the worst movies thus far, but they are really going for it this time around, and I think they have a home run on their hands. Even Tessa Thompson, who I loved in Creed, looks like she will fit right in the MCU, and will be a great addition to this franchise. November is going to be an all time stacked month with this and Justice League coming out. I know I’m more excited for Justice League, but I think this might end up being the better of the two movies. Only time will tell!

Let’s Talk About That ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer 

Admit it, we’ve all wanted to go into the gladiator pit with a co-worker. 

(Marvel)

Are you not entertained?! Thor got a haircut and he’s going to throw down with The Hulk, need I say more. Well this was nice way to cure the Monday blues, I honestly thought they would wait to drop this trailer with the release of Guardians 2 next month, but hot damn, Easter came early. 

I left Thor:Ragnarok off my most anticipated list and now I feel like kind of a jackass for doing so. This trailer was amazing, it was probably better than the first two solo Thor movies to be honest. The bright colours, and weird looking aliens definitely gives this movie a real Guardians of The Galaxy vibe and that’s not a bad thing at all. Arguably the most successful solo franchise Marvel has going for them right now, so why not kind of use that style and vibe for the newest Thor outing. Like I didn’t even recognize Cate Blanchett in the role of the movies villain Hela, she looks fantastic! Maybe just maybe she will finally break the streak of god awful villains. So fingers crossed on that one, if not we at least get to see her crush his hammer which was pretty cool too see. We even got some Goldbloom action in this, and really anything with Jeff Goldbloom is okay in my books. The guy is a legend and I hope he gets enough screen time in this. 

Obviously the trailer didn’t show much, we really have no idea what the plot is or what’s really going on, but it’s a teaser so it’s meant to tease us. All we know is, Thor’s hammer gets smashed to shit, he gets a new dew and he’s going to throw down with his work buddy Hulk. Thor actually puts his helmet on in this, and we haven’t seen that since Adventures in Babysitting! I’m pumped for this movie, I almost forgot about it, but now I can’t wait for November. Which is going to be a stacked month with this and Justice League dropping. Seriously though the work friend line at the end of the trailer might be the funniest moment in the MCU so far, their throwdown should be incredible. So like I started this thing off with, I actually want Thor to drop “Are you not entertained?” in this movie, please make that happen Marvel.
