    Oh it's a bumper year for comic book movies and the ilk and the MCU is once again tearing up the place.

    Having seen Black Panther, and what an excellent movie it was, there are more still to come. It feels like there is going to loads of good stuff between now and the end of the year.

    We have Avengers: Infinity War at the end of April, which is what a lot of the movies have built up to and a damn fine job they have done of that. We have more Deadpool, because you can never have enough Deadpoool until he has finished doing crossovers with everyone else. Finally we have Antman and Wasp which is the first MCU movie to have a female name in the title. MCU still lagging behind DCU in that respects, but its the only thing missing from it.

    Strange to think they have already shot the second of those Avengers movies as well doing them back to back, which makes a lot of sense as everyone is still around. I just hope the can keep all the continuity going.

    Of course, with such Avengers as such big epic, I'm expecting character permadeath for the heroes which will be weird to see as normally they just come back to life a bit later on. Only question is who will it be? The obvious guess would be Captain America, but then again who knows. maybe they will only knock off some of the smaller parts instead.

    Anyone else looking forward to the next few months?

    To go, or not to go to the midnight viewing for Avengers?

    I have this horrible feeling that if I don't see it quickly it 's going to be spoiled even faster

    There are spoilers for it everywhere now. I didn't see this many for the two last Star Wars films.

    They are also remarkably hard to dodge this time. The front page of the Express contains a spoiler and the full article contains exact details of what happens to several major characters and the ending.

    CIAS went and dragged me along. No comments, because you haven't all seen it. I may critique, if I am allowed a spoiler thread without being murdered!

    Come on, it was great. "A" grade all round.

    They managed to cram in so many big names who can and have starred as film leads in their own right. The pacing was great, I hadn't realised so much time had gone and I was glued from start to finish without once checking my watch, which is normally a great sign of interest in a movie, at least for me.

    Plot wise, I can see where they are going with it, and I'm betting the next two films will tie straight into the action.

    Ant Man and Wasp is going to be a solid movie I'm sure, but they had better get Captain Marvel right, at least nearly as good as Wonder Woman, or they will lose so much momentum.

    As for the ending, I got blindsided - wasn't expecting it - but it sets things up so much better than if they had gone for something more standard.

    I do hope they aren't going to put setup for between movies one and two in the other movies they release between them. As the two films are back-to-back it would make so little sense, as there is no time for it.

    I do wish the finally teaser had been

    If that had been the case, the Infinity war would not have even started. :whistle:

    I will be quite blunt and say that removing the Death Romance angle realy does weaken the story due to Thanos' idiot ball. He's got the reality gauntlet that allows him to change the fundamental rules of the universe...
    so why kill half the population, which is a temporary fix, when you can change those fundamental rules to remove the problem permanently by fixing resource consumption, availability, etc.

    There was someone who said something similar, that humanity would be extinct because the population would outgrow the food supply if people were not culled. He could even give a date for the extinction. It was in the 1800's.
    So when someone tells me Thanos is an anti-hero, I find myself comparing him to Doctor Doom of Minion after he beat Magneto: "We shall invade Genosha. We shall invade with an army of doctors, teachers, and engineers, to restore your inadequate infrastructure and improve standards to those Doom expects for his people." Then he does it.
