The Avengers: Endgame premiere was last night. Like, it just happened. And I was there (WHAT!!). If you follow me on social media then you saw all sorts of photos and videos from the red carpet – and the after party. My full review on the film is coming as soon as embargo breaks (6pm ET today), don’t worry, but let’s just say it was phenomenal. Everything I wanted and didn’t know I needed at the same time. But what is everyone else who was there saying about it? I collected some tweets of Avengers: Endgame first impressions to let you know just that.
You might not know this but the first time I watched Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was when season one premiered. I struggled through the first episode and could not get over that Coulson was alive. Yes, I love the man, but how was he alive? He died in The Avengers. It happens all the time in the comics, but this was something I was unsure of in the MCU. Well, years later I ended up binge watching seasons one through four of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – and boy had I been missing out!
We just got a new clip from Avengers: Endgame and it made my jaw literally drop. Captain America has some choice words to say about Thanos, and let’s just say they aren’t up to his normal standards. Now, I have always been a Team Iron Man kind of girl BUT I think Captain America just pulled me over to Team Cap. At least a little bit. The man grew some balls! I have always felt he was a too much of a goody-two-shoes for me, but I am loving this new Cap! Now, if we could just get the beard back…
I have two young daughters and every Easter we decorate our own Easter eggs. This year I discovered Eggnots, a dyeable ceramic replacement for Easter eggs, and I am so excited about them. Now we can keep our creations year after year – and I cannot wait to see how my daughters’ artwork changes over the years. If you know me, you know I am a total Marvel geek, so of course I made Infinity Stone Easter eggs for mine.
Avengers: Endgame is going to be hitting theaters THIS MONTH – and the hype is REAL guys! I cannot wait to see this movie on the big screen. I need closure! Of course we have yet to see too much, but as I mentioned in my Endgame trailer two breakdown and Endgame special look breakdown – we do have some information. However, I live by the motto never trust the Russo Brothers, so who really knows what we will see. As an avid comic book reader, I am going to do my best to prepare with the 5 comics you should read before seeing it. But since we haven’t really gotten any information on where the story is going, this is all speculation at this point.
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is finally back with their second season. This two episode premiere just ended, and I hope you all loved it. I already shared my spoiler free review of the Cloak and Dagger season two premiere with you, but now I am ready to dive in to the spoilers. Tandy and Tyrone are picking up right where they left off – just 8 months in the future. But they are basically in the same spots they were at the end of season one.
In case you missed it, I wrote a full Avengers: Endgame trailer 2 breakdown, and this morning we got a new special look at the movie. So of course, I needed to do a breakdown of this footage as well. If you don’t know that I am a bit of a Marvel fan, well, you don’t know me very well then. I have been reading comics since I was about 8 years old, and all things Marvel hold a special place in my heart. I attended the Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere and broke down sobbing in the theater (filled with the cast and crew of the movie). My friends had to fix my makeup before the after party – no lie. So I cannot wait for Endgame – THIS MONTH!
If you know me at all, the odds are you know about my full Guardians of the Galaxy sleeve tattoo – it was even mentioned on Nerdist. Well, one thing you might not know is that the plan has always been to add in Adam Warlock. Who is Adam Warlock? He is only one of the most powerful beings in Marvel Comics, and probably in my top ten list of favorite characters. If the casting rumors are true, and Zac Efron portrays Adam in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it looks like I will be getting his face tattooed on me.
If you truly know me, you know I love comics books. Yes, I prefer Marvel, but I love me some DC too. I mean, my daughter is named Ivy after Poison Ivy for a reason. I have to admit, about 5 pages in to the new graphic novel DC Super Sons: The Polarshield Project, I was hooked. There was no way I could put it down without knowing what happened next. And a couple hours later I was finished with it. The story sucked me right in, and remained compelling throughout. This comic took me on a super ride, and I passed it right on to my oldest daughter to check it out.
Now that Captain Marvel has been out in theaters for a few weeks, the question on everyone’s mind is can Carol Danvers beat Thanos? Fans of the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are at odds about this. Technically the writers and directors of the films can do whatever they want, regardless of what we have seen in the comics or what our opinions are. But I wanted to know what the fans thought, and I found some pretty hardcore ones to weigh in.
