Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is coming to Canada!

20 Oct

Avengers STATION (@AvengersStation) | TwitterNot even a pandemic can stop Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. from touring. All health and safety protocols will be of highest priority, and even J.A.R.V.I.S. is likely to get in the act! This exhibit is making its Canadian debut in Toronto at Yorkdale Shopping Centre for a limited engagement.

After a wildly successful run around the world–London, Soeul, Paris, Singapore, Bejing and India, this exhibit is currently in Las Vegas before heading north. Who knows, we might even see Alpha Flight make a surprise appearance. We can only hope, but fans of Marvel Entertainment’s huge cinematic franchise can start making bets as to when this will happen. With Disney acquiring Fox recently, all the talk has been about which phase will bring in the mutants, and when they’re in the canon proper, we will no doubt have to see other superhero groups making its appearance on screen.

The Science with Spider-Man, Far From Home and My Wishlist with the MCU

* Spoiler Alert

Spider-man: Far From Home is an action-packed fun-filled ride that’s less about being an epilogue to Avengers Endgame and more about Peter Parker (Tom Holland) growing up. The explanations of those returning from nothing gets explained very conveniently and felt more like a tacked on response.

At the same time, this movie also very similar to the first one as Petey leaves New York to stay with the decathlon team when trouble keeps on showing up–whether he likes it or not! (and also tries to get used to new Spidey suits)

Just who disappeared in the main and supporting cast of Sony’s Spider-Man universe show no trauma of being displaced. We know from the main Marvel Cinematic Universe films that people were emotionally affected by the sudden disappearances. The discourse in Far From Home went by too fast before jumping into a story about a small group of high school students going on summer vacation.

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.
