Avengers: Infinity War SPOILER Talk

Be Warned! There Are Avengers: Infinity War Spoilers Ahead

In case you have been living under a rock, Avengers: Infinity War finally hit theaters and everyone went to go see it. It made $258 million dollars opening weekend, which is the highest in movie history. So yea, it’s kind of a big deal. I wrote my review last week in which I gave the movie an A+.

It’s not the best movie I have ever seen, but it was by far the greatest theatrical experience of my entire life.

Infinity War fulfilled every nerd’s dream and I have never felt the energy and the emotions like I did opening night for this movie. But that’s not why we’re here; here is where we talk about SPOILERS. Let’s dive deep people.

After seeing the movie for a second time on Friday, I got to analyze it a lot more and it is truly better a second time. When watching a movie with this many amazing characters, it’s hard for specific characters to stand out amongst the crowd. But to me, the highlights went to Thor and Doctor Strange. Thor (along with Gamora) has the most personal tragedy in this movie as he helplessly watches Thanos kill Loki right in front of him. After most of his people were massacred in the beginning of the film, Thor makes it his mission to personally kill Thanos. When Thor got his new weapon called “Storm Breaker” and landed into Wakanda, I don’t think I have ever screamed as loud in a movie theater as I did there. He single handedly saved Wakanda and nearly killed Thanos on his own. But like Thanos said, he should have gone for the head. Wasn’t really a fan of him getting his eye back though. As for Doctor Strange, he of course had a major role in the film as he was the holder of the time stone. But I didn’t realize how powerful he got before Infinity War. When he cloned himself into a 100 versions to take on Thanos; that easily became one of the highlights of the movie as well.

Getting into Thanos, I said he was the best villain in the MCU after the 1st viewing and I stand by that after the 2nd viewing. What makes Thanos such a great villain is that he truly believes that he is right. After his home world of Titan was destroyed due to over population, Thanos made it his mission in life to bring balance to the universe. Even though he’s talking about intergalactic genocide, Thanos makes a great point and he truly believes he is saving the universe. He also goes on a major personal journey as he sacrifices his daughter Gamora to complete his mission. But the thing that made Thanos different is that he won. He snapped his fingers at the end and half of life disappeared. Bucky Barnes, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and Star-Lord all disintegrate and the Avengers are left decimated. Spider-Man’s death in particular brought tears to my eyes because he was a kid and he was scared. When the movie ended, I was knocked on my ass and I couldn’t believe that I have to wait a full year to see how this story ends in Avengers 4. It’s not a coincidence that the original Avengers survived the snap as Avengers 4 could be their last go to fix reality and save the universe.

As for the post credit scene, I thought it was great. It was fantastic to see Nick Fury for the 1st time since Age of Ultron and what he has been up to. But the good feeling is gone quickly as he disintegrates as well. Luckily, Fury is able to send a message through a beeper and Captain Marvel’s logo appears. For those who don’t know, Brie Larson will be staring as Carol Danvers next March (2 months before Avengers 4 comes out) and the movie will be set in the 90’s. Captain Marvel is arguably the closest character Marvel has to Superman in terms of just raw power, So it looks like Danvers will be making her way back to Earth to help the Avengers take down Thanos once and for all. It left me with a little hope that they may be able to beat Thanos, but we won’t know for another year. All I know is that I saw Avengers: Infinity War opening night and it was one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. Post your spoiler questions and thoughts down below!
