Infinity War Trailer Micro-Post

Me after watching the Infinity War Trailer. The Blood is unrelated.

Hello all you thicc purple men with garish gloves! Super Hubs here to scream at you for a few seconds about the Infinity War trailer.

First of all THERE’S AN INFINITY WAR TRAILER!! Go watch it. Watch it eight times. Memorize it. Draw it from memory. Obsess over it. Get a divorce. Watch it alone in the abandoned warehouse you call home after pushing all your friends and loved ones away. Realize Infinity War is just a movie and probably not worth ruining your life over. Realize you didn’t even ruin your life over the movie but the trailer to the movie. Reexamine yourself and your priorities. Reconcile with your ex-wife and children. Get a new job. Get your life together. AND THEN WATCH THE TRAILER AGAIN!

…I’m very excited.

This is what I’ve been waiting for since the very first Spiderman movie came out in 2002. And what I dared to hope for after the very first Marvel post-credits scene in Iron Man. 10 years. 20 movies. 5 TV shows. And we’re finally gonna see The Avengers et al face off against the Purple Planet Killer himself!

Will we see Captain America’s iconic speech against Thanos in the face of death? We better! Will someone finally say “Avengers Assemble?” Probably! And I hope it’s in the post-credits scene and I hope Phil Coulson is the one to say it! Will Hela come back and grace us all with her presence? I hope so. I hope Thanos is courting her instead of Lady Death and Hela is just so not into it with all her sass.

It’s gonna be big and I can’t. Friggin. Wait!

A few reactions to the trailer:

  • Vision with skin! Scarlet Witch in his bed. Scandalooous!
  • His Spidey sense is tingling!
  • Josh Brolin has the perfect voice for Thanos
  • Dammit Loki!
  • New Spider-suit looks awesome
  • Chris Evans looks a lot better with a beard
  • F yeah Black Panther!
  • Thanos is “balancing the universe” just like in the comic
  • The army of Wakanda is imposing AF
  • Thor meets the Guardians!

Now stop reading and go watch the trailer again! I’m gonna have it on repeat until February. Then I’ll go see Black Panther. Then I’ll have it on repeat again until the movie comes out!

My Amazing ARC Adventure: Catch-Up Batch

Hey everyone. Remember when I wrote for this blog? The one that I started on my own? What a time, eh?

Well, I’ve missed you! But in addition to just being a terrible blogger, I’ve also just been busy writing for *other* places. I know—shocking! But, back in August, I submitted a piece to the website The Prompt for a contest they were doing and won first place. Ever since, I’ve been contributing fairly regularly, and that’s been keeping me busy. (Feel free to check out my stuff.) In addition, I also wrote some essays for a collection I want to put together. So, even though I haven’t been writing here for y’all, I’ve been writing!

But also, we went to Texas in September, and then work has been . . . a thing. And sometimes, depression and anxiety just make you too tired to do things.

Anyway! At least Super Hubs has been keeping this ship afloat, with his regular IT posts from October and his recent “Justice League” review. But even with his spot-saving qualities, this blog has felt decidedly non-bookish lately, hasn’t it?? So, I’m making a concentrated effort to be better at this! I even took a break from contributing to The Prompt for this current topic so that I could start focusing on the blog!

So, with that in mind, I’m picking up on the last thread I left dangling: the dive into a bunch of ARCs I had lying around. Because it’s now been months since I’d taken on that challenge, I’m not going to devote a whole post to each book. Instead, I’m going to batch the remaining titles. Here are the first three.  Continue reading “My Amazing ARC Adventure: Catch-Up Batch”

Justice League Review

Hello all you emotionally stunted man-children in nocturnal mammal costumes! Super Hubs here with a review of Justice League! We’ve got brooding, we’ve got punching, and we’ve got a crazy fan theory with basically no real evidence! Should be a good time…even if the movie kind of wasn’t. As always, spoilers follow so tread lightly if you’re concerned about that sort of thing. Pro-Tip: There’s not a whole lot to be spoiled in this movie. Let’s go!
