Greetings, all. Nikkie here, all by my lonesome, to straight-up blow your minds with this realization I had recently.
Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, aka a stupid waste of space, and Jessica Jones (their MCU versions, anyway) are REALLY, REALLY FUCKING SIMILAR. Like . . . seriously. Their story arcs, particularly across Civil War and season 2 of Jessica Jones, have a lot of the same beats, and it’s enough to make me wonder if it’s on purpose. With the separation between the films and the Netflix show portion of the MCU, it would make sense to give each one their own anchor. And while I consider Tony Stark to be the main anchor (or Nick Fury) in the movies, an argument can be made for Captain America, and Jessica Jones definitely feels like the anchor of the Netflix shows (even though Daredevil came first).
So! Once I started connecting the dots, I knew it was a blog-worthy theory to share with the world (or the few people who read our blog, anyway). And here we are.
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!
