While Avengers Endgame is a very satisfying blockbuster and cinematic experience, a lingering thought may well be in the minds of some. Could The Russo Brother‘s time travel story be avoided? I’m not entirely against their idea, but I feel to use a traditional science-fiction solution to solve all problems is not all that creative.

The obligatory break is provided as I delve into heavy spoiler territory. Continue reading

On Avengers: Endgame & It’s Implications in the MCU

Expectations are high for Avengers: End Game to see how Thanos will ultimately get defeated. I know some points from Ant-Man & The Wasp are key to this film more than the self-titled movie introducing Captain Marvel. To see the heroes make use of the quantum realm can mean anything… and just what happens is a huge spoiler which I will not directly address in part one of a two-part article. Massive plot reveals will be explored later.

Overall, the experience of seeing Endgame is worth the wait of everything the past films built up to. It’s well-paced, packed to the gills with Easter Eggs to sate the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans and gives audiences everything expected of a blockbuster film. Warning: a few Act One reveals follow.

Ant-Man Dated and Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Pushed Back

Will Ant-Man be a dead ant, if the reports from both Slash Film and The Hollywood Reporter are any indication?

Edgar Wright’s Marvel movie about a scientist, Henry Pym, discovering sub-atomic particles that can change a mass’ size can mean either high budget effects or lower than expectation scares in a busy summer movie month. The big question the industry folks are asking is how well will this movie perform in the middle of summer, now that this film has been pushed to July 31, 2015.

On this busy plate is Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, Inside Out on June 19, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 on July 10. No date has been set for Star Wars Episode VII.

But with todays news that PoTC being put on hold, there is finally some breathing room. But as for what that means for the mouse, are they overreaching themselves? Fortunately, they have the sense to pace all these blockbuster titles out throughout the next few years.

The next step for the Avengers to make may include Pym. But until phase 3 of the Avengers saga is developed, what’s next is only a version of the East Coast scene. Fans might end up seeing a formation of the West Coast Avengers to save the day!
