I say this because I’m pretty sure anyone who follows us regularly HAS to be a nerd of some sort. So, rest assured: I’m saying it with love.
Today, at long last, Super Hubs and I are bringing you our thoughts on Marvel’s latest triumph: Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. We saw the movie on Presidents’ Day, happily contributing to its massive box-office take over that four-day opening weekend. And it’s taken us this long to blog about it because we needed to collect our jaws from the floor and remember how to breathe.
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
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!
