Does the MCU Need the Multiverse to Bring the Mutants?

For those that have seen the most recent trailer for Spiderman: Far From Home you may have noticed the mention of one of the most geek fueled terms in all of comics. Yes, I’m talking about the MULTIVERSE. For those unfamiliar, this refers to the concept that our known universe is just one of an infinite amount! Each universe can contain replicas of us but never/not always identical in personality/story. For example, there can be a universe where the nazis won World War II. There could also be a universe where Gwen Stacie got bit by a radioactive spider and not Peter Parker. The possibilities are endless! Some people believe that this will be how the X-Men are brought into the MCU. This could be the case but in my opinion, I don’t think it’s necessary. Let’s look at the FACTS people! The Avengers Arrive: Unless you’ve lived under a rock you know that the original Avengers to fight Loki in 2011 were Ironman, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk. Ironman has no …

“Avengers: Endgame” SPOILER Review

I  literally just left the theater and there is NO time to waste. This will likely be my longest written film review ever so, as I did before this three hour movie, I am stretching and am ready to go! This film very much takes places in tree pieces: The aftermath, the mission, and the endgame. For the sake of staying organized I will divide this by each act. THE AFTERMATH Uh, What?!: The Russo brothers aren’t F#$^##@ around with us! We had no idea going into this movie what it was going to be. Right off the bat, the Avengers assemble, they go find Thanos, and they kill his ass.  Oh, and the Infinity Stones? He destroyed them. DUST. Ummmm ok? What everyone does after? SULK AND LOSE THEMSELVES FOR FIVE F#$%&#% YEARS!!!! I was floored by the surprise. Yet, as soon as it was revealed and we see the shots of a world unable to cope with the loss, I was completely on board for the decision. If the story took off just some …

(My) Top Ten MCU Films

With Avengers: Endgame just about a week away I decided it was time (likely because I’m bored) to find out exactly what my top ten Marvel films are. Breaking the films down from a score of 1 to 10 by each phase, and classic process of elimination, it came down to the following: 10. Spider-Man: Homecoming– It was the official return of Spider-man back home to the MCU. I personally was not the biggest Peter Parker fan (Miles Morales forever) but the pace and tone of this film was a welcomed change from the two Andrew Garfield films. A charming teenage Peter Parker (who felt a lot like Marty Mcfly from Back to the Future), Vulture played by Michael Keaton who steps away from the two-dimensional villain role, and a wonderful supporting cast. There’s so much fun and heart in this movie! To see the character interact with Iron-man and see his world connect with the larger MCU was fantastic. Also, they made a super young Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) work. Can Marvel ever miss? 9. The …
