Spider-Man was pretty great. Mostly for the supporting cast though. Keaton was ace.

Thor 3 was pretty damned good, mainly because Hulk. Hulk is always good, unless he has the film to himself. I've decided he's basically a comedy sidekick.

The only things I was a bit "hmm" about was Hela, who I thought was a bit two dimensional and a bit dull, and I think Thor beat Hulk too easily in the gladiator arena.

And what happened to Loki? He was nowhere near as funny or good as a good guy.

I liked seeing Dr Strange, and Matt Damon (playing Loki for the second time), Sam Neil and I assume a Hemsworth brother in the play?

I assume that was Thanos's ship at the end? Infinity War is shaping up to be quite the thing.

So that's the trilogy of trilogy's done. Bring on Black Panther!

Eh, I thought Loki was really funny in it. Shitting himself when he saw the Hulk, his reaction when finally dropping out the end of Day Strange's warp tube thing, his reaction at being revealed by Thor to be pretending to be Odin at the start; lots of good stuff.

Two things.

1 - Hulk (not Thor) won the fight comfortably because he’s Hulk. That’s what he does, even in a version that has a tiny fraction of the power from the comics.

2 - Loki wasn’t a good guy at any point; he only inadvertently ended up on that side despite his wishes because Hela was fucking up his house. And him being a devious twat means he totally stole the infinity stone whie saving/destroying the world.

But it was ace. And Korg made me laugh out loud a lot.

That he didn't. They had to stop Thor because he was winning.

And Loki is a frost giant, something that they always seem to forget.

They had to stop Thor because he was competitive and gathering popularity, not because he won (though I agree the winner is arguable).

Hulk was pretty much unconscious. I fully agree that Hulk should have just been turning him into a smear on the floor.

Given the number of characters they need to cram in to the movie, I can’t see it being anything other than an absolute mess.

That said, I am probably going to love it despite the flaws. Either way, excited! The last few Marvel movies have delivered, so here’s hoping.

meh. i'm sure it'll be another movie where the fate of the entire universe hinges on the titular heroes which of course means that there's no stakes whatsoever because the heroes can't possibly lose.

i'll still watch it anyway, obviously, but unless all of the "old guard" avengers die at the end I'll consider it a disappointment.

Well, they have Avengers 4 coming out the following year (I think), but that is the one that’s supposed to draw the line under the current generation (though likely with some exceptions).

Isn't it a two-parter? Should hopefully make it less messy.

only when basically every Marvel film has the same structure. I've mentioned before how the Marvel films I prefer are the ones that aren't taking part in the seemingly endless arms race to up the stakes.

Ant-Man, Spiderman Homecoming, Iron Man and the original Thor are probably my top 4.

You should totally pitch Marvel your 'massive team of powerful superheroes get together to unblock a sink' screen-play; the might go for it.

I think they will be able to pull off that many characters easily. Split them into four groups, give them 20 minutes screentime each. Plenty of time left over for connective tissue, Thanos stuff, and a big spectacle fight at the end.

I don't think it will be a masterpiece, but I think it will be a lot of fun. They've never really totally shat the bed, and Thor 2 isn't that bad. With the first Avengers movie, I didn't think it was incredible, but my main impression was that I didn't think they dropped the ball in any major way. They nailed the execution of the team up story, and it resulted in a fun movie.

Thanos looks good in the trailer, and it's going to be fun to see different characters and interacting, because a lot of these characters I already care about.

Isn't the next one out 12 months later or something? It's like a two parter?

i'd buy that for a dollar

Seriously though, the problem with this shit (and it's not just Marvel, but they're the worst for it simply due to the sheer number of movies in the MCU at this point) is that it's been done so many times before and by now, it's just so fucking predictable and boring.

Here's a list of what the plot says will happen if the bad guys win in each of the MCU movies:
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Iron Man - the bad guy just wants to get Stark out of the way so he can carry on making money selling weapons
The Incredible Hulk - dunno, not seen this one
Iron Man 2 - just a revenge story really
Thor - another revenge story
Captain America: The First Avenger - the Red Skull dude will launch Tesseract-powered WMDs and kill millions of people
Marvel's The Avengers - Earth will be lost to the Chitauri/Thanos, and presumably humans either wiped out or subjugated

Iron Man 3 - another revenge story
Thor: The Dark World - some sort of cataclysmic world-ending event
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - millions killed by Hydra
Guardians of the Galaxy - the bad guy will use the infinity stone to destroy the galaxy
Avengers: Age of Ultron - humanity is annihilated
Ant-Man - shrinking suits to be sold to Hydra, which will presumably end up being used to kill millions but isn't stated

Captain America: Civil War - a revenge story
Doctor Strange - Earth will be engulfed by the Dark Dimension
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - The galaxy (universe?) will be completely remolded as per Ego's own world
Spider-Man: Homecoming - some guys will continue to sell stolen alien technology
Thor: Ragnarok - Hela will rule over all 9 realms and spread death and destruction wherever she goes

I've bolded the ones that I feel Infinity War is just going to be a rehash of.

It's just nothing new. The marketing is all "it's all been building up to this" but actually it's more "you've basically already seen this at least three times before, but this time there's more heroes!"

Anyway, like I say, I'll still go and see it because I'm sure it'll be a decent blockbuster action film. In fact, if anything my moaning is a criticism of the earlier films rather than this one, it's just like the MCU has a severe form of premature ejaculation.

//edit: If I was to do a similar list for the DCEU, it would be entirely bolded :P

The studio recanted that Avengers 4 is the second half of Infinity War, and changed the title accordingly, but I think they still filmed them together so it’s probably very connected.

My favourite thing about the movies is them refusing to let Tom Holland read the script because they don’t trust him with the spoilers :D

Sebastian Stan is a massive spoiler giver awayer, too. But he's the most adorable emo bad guy ever so it's fine.

There was a picture on twitter the other day, with all the lady heroes in one shot, all dressed normally like before hair and makeup. It gave me feels.

I hope Starlord and Thor get to be bezzie mates. With no shirts on.

How about 'Massive team of powerful superheroes get together and still manage to lose'

Because if there's no chance of that, there's no dramatic tension.
