How long till we finally get Deadpool 3?

xxO0022

After Avengers: Endgame, there’s only one (comic book) movie that gets me excited like first date, one movie that I’m really really looking forward to: Deadpool 3. And I check the news almost every day. And every time I search for news, all I get are click-baits, misleading headlines, and dead-ends.

So, while waiting for news about the new Deadpool movie to finally arrive (the Disney-Fox merger kind of messed up the continuum in the same way Thanos did messed up the universe when he snapped—therefore Disney is actually Thanos), I tried to be a useful human.

Thank you, Tony Stark

You were young and so in love
But your ex-boyfriend married another girl
‘Cause you were dusted in the snap
Now, do you say, “Thank you, Tony Stark?”

You used to have a high-paying job
But you were dusted in the snap
Now you’re back and you’re jobless
Now, do you say, “Thank you, Tony Stark?”

Not to mention, your colleagues are all managers now.

You have a family
Three kids, a beautiful wife
But they’re five years older now.
And your ex-wife married another man.

One of your kids committed suicide, another is in jail
And your youngest got into drugs.
You could say that you just suck as a Dad.
But you wouldn’t be so miserable
Had you remained dusted due to the snap.

And worse, the Avengers brought you back
Now, tell me, do you still say, “Thank you, Tony Stark?”

You were just a kid when you lost your mom and dad
And it’s because those supes in Wakanda
Failed to plan their counterattack
You said you’d avenge them, so you became Kick-Ass

But with no superpower, superheroing just sucks
Now your parents are back
But their baby boy’s gone
In fact, Kick-Ass was gone, dead, hit by a truck

Now, you can’t possibly still say “Thank you, Tony Stark.”

 


This isn’t really about Tony Stark but Marvel’s creative decision to make that five-year jump after the “snap” which brought up a lot of questions which Avengers: Endgame did not or failed to address. Of course, Marvel seems to have everything planned and they seem to have reasons behind the five-year jump. It’s just that at the moment, I’m not fully convinced that everything is A-OK after the Hulk made that second snap. And these are some of the worse case scenarios. I might still add a few verses later. And feel free to add your own verse/s below. 

11 Favorite Moments In ‘Avengers: Endgame’

1. Justine Bieber. That moment when Rocket joked about Captain Marvel’s ever changing haircut. Yup, Captain Marvel is Disney’s attempt at a lesbian superhero. And they still couldn’t spell it out. Where’s your balls Kevin Feige Mickey Mouse? Also, Deadpool did it first. And she has a very cool name: Negasonic Teenage Warhead. By the way, Deadpool is now also Disney—but with balls (hopefully).

2. Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy.” Hawkeye losing his family to the snap, this song, and Tony Stark and Nebula drifting in space set the tone of Endgame‘s first act. It’s also probably a reference to the Iron Man movies which features mostly 70s rock music (AC/DC) on its soundtrack. Continue reading “11 Favorite Moments In ‘Avengers: Endgame’”

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Avengers: Endgame Is The Super Duper $@%!#& Season Finale of the Year

The End Is The Beginning Is The End

Avengers: Endgame isn’t “the best MCU movie or the best superhero movie since (insert your preference here),” but it does what it has to do, “whatever it takes.” Even if that means Endgame makes for an unwieldy, ponderous, pandering, uneven, thrilling ride. It’s a crowd-pleaser and super duper entertaining.

Just like the fanboys/girls are saying, it gloriously caps the 22-movie Infinity Stones Saga and its a fitting swan song, encore, last dance, last hurrah for the OG Avengers, who, more or less, are saying goodbye to the fans after this movie. It’s a massive ending. If the whole of Infinity War is one big climax, Endgame is a false ending, another big climax then denouement. Continue reading “Avengers: Endgame (2019)”

Avengers: Endgame Leaks, Spoilers, Fan Theories

PBpaPfht3TSS2rSg5ezHE-480-80We’re in the Endgame now. Avengers: Endgame is now showing in theaters. In Manila. And probably in malls in some other cities. Don’t have a firm plan yet. Don’t want to wait in long cues but I don’t want to wait until two weeks either. Not really afraid about someone spoiling it to me because I’ve been reading plot leaks, potential spoilers and fan theories for quite some time now.

And I don’t think Endgame is the type of movie that can be spoiled by major spoilers (i.e., character deaths). They’re not like M. Night Shyamalan movies. Yes, it takes away some of the shock factor by the time you actually see it on screen but you’d be lying to yourself if you’d say you didn’t think that either Tony or Cap might die this whole time.

Like it said in the title, this is about the plot leaks, potential spoilers and fan theories I found on the web after watching those Endgame’s TV spots and trailers, and what I think about them. If the TV spots and trailers are like strip tease without revealing anything, the online leaks and theories is like you imagining you actually saw something. And if you’re wary about reading potential spoilers and want to go in blind, you’ve got to stop now. Right here.

Despite all those leaks, one big question remains: Just how are they going to beat Thanos this time? Are they going to undo the snap with a new Gauntlet? Or are they going to go back in time, go to Wakanda to change the ending of the previous movie? Are they going to kill Thanos before he could do the snap?

According to one of the leaks, there’s going to be a big battle in Nova. Does this mean they’re going to undo all those events after Thanos gets the power stone?

Wait, someone’s knocking on my door. And it’s… it’s Thanos. So, I guess thathjdjd it. See yksjdjfn.

The Avengers (2012)

The Avengers (2012). The cataclysmic results of Loki’s entrance in a S.H.I.E.L.D. base was somewhat off-putting, sort of Michael Bay-like, but the movie regains my trust the moment Black Widow and Bruce Banner show up. At the start, Steve Rogers has nothing for Tony Stark but contempt, for Nick Fury and SHIELD, distrust. Bruce Banner isn’t comfortable within a military organizations like SHIELD but tries to help them anyway. Despite that, he’s in full control of his rage—except with Loki’s scepter in close proximity. The scepter is neatly situated at the center and surrounded by the would-be Avengers, pitting the superheroes against each other, amplifying their egos, fears, dividing them Continue reading “The Avengers (2012)”

Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Thor (2011)

Iron-Man (2008). This is where it all begun, the Mark I of all Marvel movies. This is the movie where Marvel–after deciding to make their own movies based on characters they haven’t sold yet–finally hammers it home. In a cave. In Afghanistan. Tony Stark’s billionaire-genuis-playboy suits Robert Downey Jr. perfectly in the same the way the red and gold weaponized armor suit fits Tony Stark. The CGI’s top notch. So is Iron Man’s origin story: Stark’s transformation from an egotistical weapons manufacturer to an egotistical armor-suited do-gooder. For better or worse, this movie has forged Continue reading “Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Thor (2011)”
