I honestly loved Endgame but I must admit I really do enjoy reading the comments here about what some of you would have preferred. I actually find myself wanting to explore the comics for myself now

One of the MCU’s consistent big misses has been Hawkeye. In the comics he’s a sarcastic, sometime self-conscious (due to being a mere bowman in the presence of gods and super androids) hothead. He’s also one of the most highly skilled members of the team, someone Cap trusts in terms of ability. In time the self-conscious Hawkeye realizes that every Avenger has their moment and that only he’s suited for certain jobs. We’ve seen none of that personality/characterization from MCU Hawkeye though and that’s a shame. Classic comic book Hawkeye is way more interesting than ultraviolent Ronin Hawkeye ever was.

With Thor, the more MCU movies we get, the more they seem to f**k him up. That’s really awful as he’s one of the big 3 Avengers who MUST be done right imho. Thor 1 got him how I’d like him BUT he was human for far too long in that. That whole sequence with him, Loki, Lady Sif, and The Warriors Three on that frost giant realm Jotunheim was perfectly executed in terms of characterizations. I would’ve wanted more of that in the Thor movies.

I’ve said my issues with MCU Vision already in this thread.

Iron Man and Cap they really have done well in these movies. And I didn’t even like Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3 was just ok. Cap 1-3 are high quality and they got better and better. Sure, there are MCU Iron Man and Cap pieces that don’t exactly match up with their comic counterparts but imho those differences are small and easily forgivable. The Endgame endings for both of them are perfect the more I think about it.

Yea....i've always said the same.  All Cap movies are great (With Civil war being my fav MCU film ever.)

Iron man........not so much.

i enjoyed 1 but couldn't take 2 and 3.

but.....I love iron man's appearances in other films way more.

Interesting dynamic there.

Iron Man was pure brilliance
Iron Man 2 was good, but burdened with Justin Hammer's constant irritating babbling and blatant showcasing of Scarlett Johansson's sex-appeal.
Iron Man 3 was bad. The kid was majorly annoying, Stark wouldn't shut up, the fake Mandarin was lame, and the ending was a mess.

I’d go like this...

Iron Man: excellent
Iron Man 2: bad
Iron Man 3: ok / just passable...but it got worse after second and third viewings

Did you catch that Iron Man 3 kid in Endgame at Stark’s lakeside funeral?

Cap: good
Cap 2: excellent
Cap 3: superb

I hear you when it comes to Iron Man in non-Iron Man flicks. He’s a fun character that mixes well with others. And you can see they’re trying to make Thor that guy now. But I don’t think it’s working with him as it’s looking too forced with all the Thor “comedy”.

just Fukk you.


So all in all still a B-.  good enough.  but a bit of a let down after Infinity War


Mick

I saw Endgame for the second time last night. And although it didn’t get worse, it didn’t get better either. And I thought more of Black Widow. Earlier in this thread I said i thought she was done okay as I didn’t know what else they could’ve done with her. I still mostly think that but feel they could’ve used her to guide the next team of Avengers in Phase 4. After all, she was the one trying to hold the team together in Endgame immediately following the snap. I know her prequel is coming next year so it’s not the end of Johansson. Still, they seem to want to showcase “girl power” as shown in Captain Marvel and that one battle scene in Endgame. Having her lead the Phase 4 Avengers team could’ve made sense as she’s been there from the start anyway.

This wouldn’t be my A-Team of Avengers but it could’ve looked like this going forward:

1. Widow: as leader
2. Sam Wilson Captain America
3. Ant-Man
4. Wasp
5. Spidey

A smaller, noticeably less muscle bound / cosmic team could’ve been a new dynamic for them to play with. Of course it won’t happen because MCU Disney is going to want to do more space stories and Danvers stories and...sell as many toys as possible.

yea i think they've killed Thor.  Him being possibly with the guardians now won't lessen the comedy unfortunately.

So they'd have to be pretty serious about bringing him back around.

Director of Thor Rag won’t do that. Since he knows nothing of the comic character, he has no reason to make him what he should actually be. He was praised for Thor Rag so he’ll do the same thing again - comedy Thor. And Hemsworth prefers the comedy too.

I’d guess Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will have powerhouse Adam Warlock (he was in the cocoon in GotG2). And Thor could be used to show how tough Adam Warlock is.

With Widow I’m not sure what else they could’ve done with her so for me what they did with her was just ok.

The Black Widow character was all finished, in my opinion.  She is who she is - a former Soviet spy/assassin who is now a loyal member of the Avengers.  She no longer has red in her ledger.

Marvel's planned Black Widow film will be just more of the same - fighting scenes, athletic stunts, and Natasha being sexy all during it.  :eyeroll:

Johansson could be sexy wearing an oversized garbage bag.

I’m ambivalent about a Widow movie. But I assume they’ll make that a spy type movie since the MCU hasn’t tackled that genre yet. Besides, she is a spy after all. One problem is that she doesn’t have any memorable villains to fight. I guess they could bring in Hawkeye and since it’s a prequel, a still-mind-controlled Bucky/Winter Soldier in a cameo or at least a mention. Also, maybe we’d be able to see what actually happened in Budapest. And, it just came to me that maybe the Hawkeye/Widow ongoing reference to Budapest isn’t actually THE Budapest but rather, a small hicktown named Budapest in nowheresville, USA where death and destruction occurred.

I’m thinking out loud and digressing.

Anyway...

:blaze:

A Hawkeye/Black Widow story would be interesting, as long as it’s Renner/Johansson doing it.  They have good chemistry.

Supposedly, there’s a Hawkeye show coming out through Disney’s streaming service. First is the Falcon/Winter Soldier one, then I think it’s Vision/Scarlet Witch show, Loki’s, and finally the Hawkeye one which is a very new development.  

The one scene in Endgame (or any other MCU movie for that matter) where Hawkeye seemed like Hawkeye imho was when he was frustrated and screaming at Thor. This was right after they all returned and Widow sacrificed herself.

Having Hawkeye and even Winter Soldier in the Widow prequel would make sense but I’m not so sure Disney MCU would do that. They might just have completely new characters for the audience since Widow is an already established character herself. Plus, they seem to be wanting to go with unused Marvel characters for these upcoming movies [see also: The Eternals]. And since Hawkeye will have his own show, his chances to be in the Widow movie might be slightly smaller.

I read somewhere that Howard the Duck is somewhere in that last battle scene with everyone. Couldn’t find him though.

One info that seemed to be bs is that some X-Men names are listed in that memorial area where Lang was looking for his daughter’s name. No reason for that to be true especially since the movie was mainly finished before the Fox deal was.

I’m pretty satisfied with Iron Man’s story. I’m really surprised by his death. And I’m amused that prior to opening day some YouTubers were kind of arrogantly predicting that the big last scene with all the characters was going to be Tony & Pepper’s wedding FOLLOWING Cap’s funeral. Man were they wrong. :lol:

Next time I see Endgame will be either on a long haul flight or on blu-ray.

And I’m amused that prior to opening day some YouTubers were kind of arrogantly predicting that the big last scene with all the characters was going to be Tony & Pepper’s wedding FOLLOWING Cap’s funeral. Man were they wrong. :lol:

Next time I see Endgame will be either on a long haul flight or on blu-ray.

I find it very entertaining when a big teaser trailer is released, followed by thousands of predictions and theories, and then seeing all of them - including my own - get shot down.  :lol:

Just got back from my 3rd viewing.  :lol:  The ending was the same!

Yeah!

Things I didn’t expect:

- two heroes putting on the glove
- Iron Man’s death
- Cap to grow old and happy
- Cap to pass on the mantle to Falcon; if anything, I thought it’d go to Bucky...but not yet.
- Though I thought it was a possibility, I didn’t expect Widow’s death
- Vision not being shown or even mentioned
- the bastardization of Thor and handing over Asgard...WTF?!!!
- ALL of the villains being snapped


Things I was right or kind of right about:

- Cap in the past...I thought he’d get STUCK in the past (and lost to modern day Avengers) and not actually come out of it a happy old man. I guess they still can have young Evans Cap in superhero adventures in the past in that alternate timeline.
- Thor and Hawkeye surviving were the two I thought who were guaranteed to make it—Thor because he’s Thor, and Hawkeye because he’s been the least spotlighted original Avenger so his death wouldn't have had much impact.


There are probably a few others on both ends that I’ve forgotten.

I figured that at least one hero would die, but I wasn’t sure who.  Stark was a logical choice, as he could not handle being “retired”.  He would always want to be involved.  I thought Natasha may die, which would have had Banner go off into a Hulk rage like we’ve never seen.  I was totally wrong on that.  :lol:
