1/ As the two films narrow in on the same worldwide gross, the market-by-market performance of #AvengersEndgame v. #Avatar is fascinating, especially regarding the idea of global v. American-based IP

(Keep in mind, 'Endgame' benefits from a decade of inflation and market growth)
2/ China is super interesting. 'Avengers: Endgame' did 3.1x 'Avatar', but China's box office has grown 11.4x since 'Avatar' premiered in 2009.

If 'Avengers: Endgame' grossed $630MM in 2009, it'd have been 70% of the entire year (v. 7% today & 'Avatar''s 22%). Huge advantage.
3/ 'Avengers: Endgame' looks likely to do 9-11% more in the US than 'Avatar', but benefits from 20% increase in ticket prices.

Based on tickets sold, 'Endgame' will sell 7-9% fewer tickets.

On a total adjusted basis, 'Avatar' will likely squeeze out +3% in the US.

Theory about the "why didn't Captain Marvel just snap" thing: I think the radiation from doing the snap would probably still kill her even though she's stronger than the Hulk and Thanos, because they're resistant to it. (1/5) #AvengersEndgame
She's way stronger than the Hulk and can clearly take a punch to the face from Thanos. But I don't think Thanos survived the snap because he's "strong", it's because he's resistant to gamma radiation, just like the Hulk. (2/5)
Take a close look at the background in Infinity War when Thanos uses the Reality Stone to show Doctor Strange what Titan used to look like. The people there are human sized and proportioned (without a Thanos chin), not an 8-foot behemoth like Thanos is. (3/5)

In the past 10 days, I watched all films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some I'd seen before, others I watched for the very first time. The following is a thread of the #MCU films ranked from worst to best, in my opinion.
#22: The Incredible Hulk - This story is a total downer. Was I ever supposed to feel happy while watching this movie? This was not your typical “origin story” as it was basically an unofficial sequel to the 2003 Hulk film. To me, the film lacked character and a purpose....
...While parts of the first act in Brazil were promising, the rest was tiresome, asking myself why I should care about what my eyes were watching and my brain was processing. Easily the most forgettable of the 22 films.

Here's my pitch for an alternative take on Fat Thor. #AvengersEndgame spoilers, kinda, but actually just fanfic.

So, Rabbit and Fuckable Sweater Hulk drive to New Asgard and run into Hot Lumberjane Valkyrie. They ask where Thor is. She tells them to follow the roar of laughter.
They find Thor, fat, loud, sexy AF, cheering on an arm-wrestling contest. He offers his friends giant beers, but he no longer drinks. He seems... excessively happy.
His braids are on point, his hair is glossy, his beard is thick as his thighs, and he's back on the eye patch. He has two seagulls called Thunder and Lightning. He's King Thor.

A quick #HowStoryWorks explainer of my raindrop-hurricane theory of the cultural implications of story choices, specifically inspired by recent discussions around #GameOfThrones & #AvengersEndgame. #HereBeSpoilers
We learn how to interact with the world the same way we learn to walk and talk; by observing it. This includes stories, which we internalize as "truth" even when they are fiction, because we read our stories as emotionally True, even when they are not literal Fact.
So, when particular story choices are made over and over and over again...

... women dying to motivate male stories...

As promise. Thread untuk filem Avengers: Endgame. Please be advised, ada SPOILER, easter eggs, references & explanation tentang ending juga apa seterusnya selepas movie ini. Jom. #AvengersEndgame
Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) diperkenalkan hampir 11 tahun dengan movie pertama Iron Man (2008). Avengers: Endgame merupakan movie ke-22 dalam MCU yang dimulai dgn Robert Downey Jr. sebagai Iron Man.
First sekali yang Avengers buat adalah cari Thanos yang dah menyepikan dirinya di satu planet. Lepas dah jumpa, Thanos terangkan yg dia dah musnahkan semua batu infiniti tu.

Sería muy interesante armar el maratón de #MCU alrededor de #Avengers, pero acomodando todas las escenas de todas las películas en una sola línea temporal. No incluyo las series por que sería sumamente largo y complicado.

Abro #hilo y me explico.
#AvengersElHilo
Actualmente hay dos formas (bueno hay un chingo) en que puedes ver todas las películas del Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel:
1.- En el orden cronológico de lanzamiento, es decir comenzar con #IronMan (2008), hasta llegar a #AvengersEndgame (2019).
2.- Viéndolas en orden cronológico de tiempo de los eventos, es decir, comenzar con lo que sucedió primero con #CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger y terminando con #AvengersEndgame. Esto sin contar los "flashbacks" con los que comienzan algunas como #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy

SPOILERS DE #AvengersEndgame

Acho que todo mundo que me segue/lê meus tweets já viu #VingadoresUltimato mas fica o aviso.

Queria falar aqui a minha interpretação da viagem no tempo no MCU, e como eu gostaria que ela funcionasse baseado nas conversas que os personagens tiveram.
Primeiro temos que levar em consideração o que o Prof. Hulk fala: quando alguém viaja pro passado, o passado se torna o futuro da experiência daquela pessoa, e o presente se torna o passado dela. E o passado não pode ser alterado pelo futuro.

Isso trás 2 possibilidades:
1. "O que aconteceu, aconteceu": ou seja, se alguém voltar no tempo significa que, na linha temporal, sempre houve uma versão futura daquele alguém naquele momento. Sempre esteve escrito.

2. Se alguém voltar pro passado, instantaneamente cria-se uma nova linha temporal.

1/Know the odds of anyone changing their life around because of a few Tweets are slim to none, but 1) never worry about the odds 2) I believe in the slow burn realization-- the phenomenon wherein a concept enters one's mind and sits and churns in there till perhaps it meets it's
2/component thought ten years later and boom catalyzes a chain reaction... Anyway, compelled to relay that seeing all the posts about #AvengersEndgame and #BattleOfWinterfell brings something to the surface in me, because I see that the reason these stories resonate so deeply is
3/because of our own heroic natures, which we often deny. I see the world as if everyone in those battles, all the allies, the whole team decided to take a meal break, perhaps a trip to Ikea, maybe freshen up their make-up mid battle...in other words it's always been unfathomable

Awwwww yeah, let’s do this.

#AvengersEndgame
Kinda surprised by how many folks are here. This theater is packed for an 11:30pm showing on a Sunday.

#AvengersEndgame
Soooo... it was a tad long, but I liked it a lot. And the “you will need tissues” refrain proved true.

There was also a lot of subtle social justice commentary that I appreciated. Really well done.

I love how the first ten minutes of #BattleOfWinterfell is just a montage of nervous people staring at the dark

#GameOfThrones
Holy shit that opening battle sequence was brilliant

The swordlights winking out. Like hope flickering away.

As #AvengersEndgame rightfully celebrates all the great @Marvel heroes on screen, I just wanted to tip my (ahem) Cap to the actors who play them… many of whom take seriously the responsibility of portraying champions of goodness. I got to see that up close over the years. 1/8
…putting together charity screenings with Disney and @NYDailyNews. Back when the effort was just a cocktail napkin idea to honor kids who did volunteer work after Hurricane Sandy, @RobertDowneyJr volunteered: . He did a second one a few years later. 2/8
Then, to surprise a group of underprivileged young actors in 2013, @twhiddleston literally flew in to New York from London (between play performances) for less than 24 hours. Yeah, Loki is a big hero. 3/8

Congrats, @lsirikul! And you address one of the biggest issues I had with #AvengersEndgame’s time travel logic: The “present” of the main MCU is in fact not the “prime” MCU—it’s an alternate continuity created by Cap’s decision to go back and stay.
So here’s an interesting thing to note: Dr. Strange saw 14M versions of reality and this alternate was the only one where Thanos is defeated.

But what defeated Thanos isn’t just the recovery of the Stones—or at least that’s not the original “intervention.”
#AvengersEndgame
By going back in time and staying, Steve likely had some role in encouraging Peggy and Howard Stark to found SHIELD—and to safeguard the two Stones that Steve and Tony later acquire.

It’s unassailable that the present day MCU exists because of SHIELD (HYDRA infestation and all).

I own a shotgun.
I want sensible gun control.
This is a crap take taking a crap shot ⁦@KamalaHarris⁩.
You don’t need a candid camera to see agenda here.
“Harris owns a handgun. That's disqualifying for a 2020 Democrat in my book.”
YOUR BOOK SUCKS. usatoday.com/story/opinion/…
Ah.
I get it.
Funt has a choice and its not Harris so he took a cheap shot.
He’s for Mayor Pete it seems.
Me? The only “endorsement” I have is a “non-dorsement” against Tulsi, but I’ll call BS when I see it.
And his attack on Harris is biased BS.

usatoday.com/story/opinion/…
BTW: I have NO idea if Mayor Pete owns a gun. Honestly, he intrigues me as a candidate and I will learn more.
But I don’t have patience for weak torpedo takes on Dems, and that’s what this piece was to me.
And now, back to fawning over #AvengersEndgame

OMG DID YOU SEE I CANNOT BELIEVE AND THEN THEY ALL HOW CAN I BE DEHYDRATED AND HAVE TO PEE THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER BISH WHAT THE HELL NO WAY I DIDNT EVEN BREATHE FOR THE LAST HOUR GIVE THOSE RUSSO BOYS A KISS DEAD ON THE MOUTH I HAVE QUESTIONS PLEASE HELP #AvengersEndgame
Also.... the @Russo_Brothers being the benevolent geniuses that they are, really didn’t put any end credit scenes in. Because they knew we had to pee. So unless you’re looking for your friend’s name, you can leave when the names start scrolling. Promise. #AvengersEndgame
Oh snap (pun intended)! I just made a connection between #AvengersEndgame and #InfinityWar. While eating my noodles. This is my life for the next several days, isn’t it?

EVERYBODY SHUT UP I’m about to watch REVENGERS: BLAMEGAME or whatever this movie is called, I haven’t seen any of the other REVENGERS movies, or whatever, no spoilers but does CAPTAIN IRONTHULK die or what
Update: REVENGERS was good, mostly! Okay, bye!
Okay, a somewhat hasty and spoiler-free #AvengersEndgame review: first third, solid! Middle-third, kinda draggy? Ennh? Final third, holy shit.

Without spoilers, I will say this.
The best thing about sequential story telling is how you can mark moments in your life with moments in the story telling.
I remember who I was when #IronMan came out.
I know who I am now.
/1

#AvengersEndgame
I was getting a drink at the bar...
...with someone celebrating their 21st birthday at #AvengersEndgame.
He was 11 when Iron Man came out.
He bought action figures.
I did too.
/2
It was nice, for a while, to be in a communal space with people just... enjoying something.
Laughing at the same jokes.
Cheering the same things.
Gasping at the same shocks.
Reveling in the same moments.

I'm rewatching #InfinityWars before I see #AvengersEndgame tomorrow. And if they can bring back Loki, who died on Asgard, they damn well can bring back Heimdall.
Also... (apparently I'm live tweeting #InfinityWars), if Dr. Strange had just listened to Stark and put the Time Stone in the garbage disposal, we wouldn't be in this mess. But NNNNNOOOOOOOOO. Strange and his stupid oath. Look at this fool.
What year is it in #InfinityWars if Tony Stark has a flip phone but also the Google Glass glasses thing? Make it make sense.

I went and just saw #AvengersEndgame movie, "SPOILER" "ALERT" it sucked badly! Everything @Disney touches it sucks especially the #Marvel franchises, i just wish they have gone with the 90th comics version...
90th #Avengers was the best version. Prove me wrong... #Marvel
I grew up reading and watching the 80th and 90th #Marvel comics and shows! I enjoyed watching #ironman 1,2 and 3 but it wasn't good as the animated versions of the comic books. @TheRealStanLee is my youth hero, but i just wish they stick with the comics version.

There shall be ZERO spoilers from me. Don't worry. This is one of the biggest cinematic moments of our lifetimes. I'm watching the midnight showing...
Good luck everyone.
Here's a recap of how we got here!
#WhateverItTakes #AvengersEndgame
I need Captain Marvel to be a more interesting character than Captain America. She was brilliant at the start of her movie. She was practically Tony Stark in warrior form. More of that personality please!! #AvengersEndgame
(Yes, I'm tweeting all my thoughts now, because you all know I haven't seen #AvengersEndgame yet, so none of these tweets can be spoilers. I'm not looking forwards to having to go into Marvel radio silence once I enter the cinema.)
