Amazing

It told us nothing about the movie we didn't already know.

"It told us nothing about the movie we didn't already know."

Not true. If you compare this to the previous trailer: We see Scott Lang walking around a desolate neighborhood looking at missing people posters. Tony reveals he was planning on surprising Pepper Pots with something (Marriage or a baby?). Whatever they have planned to bring everyone back will be done no matter what it takes. Captain America definitely looks like he is on the losing end of a big fight. And of course it's shown that Captain marvel is joining the team (not that this was a surprise)

I'm pretty sure Steve Rogers is going to die.

We also find out that I want to see a Thor and Captain marvel team up movie.

I'd watch it. It could be a buddy cop style movie where Captain America is always serious and Thor is always goofing off. They butt heads but at the end they have learned to work with eachother's strengths and develop brotherly love and respect.

In terms of it "showing us nothing we didn't already know" that is partly the idea. They are intentionally avoiding large chunks of the film to prevent people from figuring out what's going to happen. They're avoiding spoilers of any kind.

Also it showed them in the new Avengers team costumes that people spotted action figures for a couple of months ago.

I am thinking that Thor and Carol will team up to go do some kind of mission in Endgame.

Thor better smash. Thats all I'm saying.

With captain marvels consent of course.

Do you really think anyone could do anything physical to Captain Marvel against her consent?

Possibly doctor strange with his mind fuckery. Full gauntlet thanos can.

Full gauntlet thanos can.

There's probably already some rule 34 of that.

Thor can't touch her though.

Eh Thor took a dying star to the chest. I'm sure he can put up some sort of a fight. We haven't seen much of withers full potential imo.

Any who thats why I said with captains marvels consent

OMG IM HAVING A NERDGASM!!!! I LOVE THOR!

Posted March 15th by Marvel Nerd Man

Is it weird that my big take-away was that I kinda totally want a Hawkeye/Ronin movie? Like, I kinda feel like that movie would be way more interesting and fun. Have him transition to Japan, fight Yakuza or something. Keep it smaller and maybe a bit of noir. I kinda hope that type of thing is the future of Marvel movies.

Black Widow really got the shaft by not having the first female-lead standalone movie.

I think I'm sort of on the same page as Patrick Willem, if you follow him on YouTube. Basically, I enjoy the movies quite a lot, but I have a hard time getting amped up about the big "game changing" event when we still haven't ever really seen any of the consequences of the previous game changing events. For me, the downside to trying to make movies like the comics is that we just don't really get to see the interesting stuff. We see the events, but not their aftermath. That has been the case for every Avengers movie, really. Like, for all the talk of how someone needs to die for something to matter, we never really get to see the aftermath of anything anyway. If they kill Cap, will it really mean that much more than, say, when Cap had to give up the shield just before Infinity War? We didn't get any stories to show us what him not as Cap means. So what is the substance behind killing Cap here? I dunno. I kinda want smaller stories with more impact, I guess. I feel like this is a thing DC is poised to potentially do (if they can just stop trying to build everything around a Snyder/Nolan aesthetic.)

I'm sure it will be technically impressive, and the character interactions will all be very entertaining. But I guess I'm feeling a little stuffed with junk food lately, and kinda want to eat something of substance.

Also it showed them in the new Avengers team costumes


Seeing all the MCU characters in those new uniforms put chills down my spine.

I'm looking forward to this movie obviously, and will see it obviously. Nothing more to add really, except that I'm not nearly as hyped as I was for infinity war. (not that that's a bad thing -- it'll be a long while before someone builds a whole universe that pays off after 10+ years like that again).

I'm curious: what do people mean when they talk about it "paying off"?

Well for one we finally get to see the accumulation of all our heroes who had been presented to us over multiple movies in the last 10 years. We also got to see the actual baddie behind the first Avengers movie finally come out to play. All of these things could have been done badly. But Marvel managed to pull them off.

We will also see closure for some of these characters.

I guess the thing sort of interesting to me about that is that it isn't exactly like - in terms of character stories or really just overall narrative of each film - the franchise has really been building *narratively* to this point. Like, yes, they have dropped nuggets in post-credit sequences and through small moments in the Guardians films, but it's not like Infinity War is where Thor: Ragnarok was building to, or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, or Iron Man 3. On the most part, *narratively,* Infinity War is just a sort of random event that hasn't really mattered to the individual stories being told. We refer to the MCU as "serialized storytelling" but by and large, the stories being told are finished when the credits roll. Sometimes there are loose threads. Really, the only movie that feels like a narrative sequel is Civil War, which does continue to the Bucky plot of Winter Soldier.

You know what I mean?

As for it being sort of the culmination of these characters, I guess I'm not really sure what that means either. They have done a good job crafting a cinematic world around each other so that when Iron Man shows up in a Cap movie, it doesn't need explanation. Same thing with Hulk showing up in a Thor film. Isn't that in itself the culmination? Is a mega-crossover event really what it takes to be the "culmination" of this endeavor? And as far as character arcs go, given that people expect someone to die (and they almost certainly will kill someone off), is the argument that these character arcs only pay off if they die at the end? Like would the culmination of Cap's and Bucky's arcs are that Cap eventually dies and Bucky takes the mantle? Even though a bunch of their story actually occurs off-screen? Even though we still haven't really seen the impact of Cap without his shield? Will the MCU with Bucky at the helm instead of Steve really change the stories we get going forward?

I know I'm kinda ranty. The point here isn't to be like, "This ISN'T exciting." I guess I just don't totally understand the exact reasoning behind the concept that a mega cross-over event and the death of some characters are what this franchise has been "building towards" when by and large each movie has kinda stood on its own and not really connected to each other besides connecting the universe itself.

Posted March 18th by Jet Presto

I totally agree with you Jet. I don't feel like anything has really built towards this. All they have done is drop a few hints, retcon a few key objects to be infinity stones and teased Thanos in post-credits scenes.

Narratively this hasn't been built up in any meaningful way and the idea that it has is just Disney's marketing team doing their job. (Like the stupid story they've told about the title of this movie having been teased in previous movies even though I'm fairly confident they had no idea what they were going to call it at the time).

Seeing ten years of plotlines and characters come together, basically. All the gigantic parts of the franchise had something to do with these "infinity stones" and/or thanos, so seeing it all pay off was awesome.
