#NowWatching “X-Men.”

A film franchise with a complicated, but surprisingly important legacy.

Although there were obviously superhero films before, and films like “Blade” are often overlooked, “X-Men” is ground zero for the modern superhero boom.
Of course, it is, quite rightly, impossible to talk about the series without acknowledging that Bryan Singer is a well-documented sexual predator.

This informs the films’ legacy, although it seems under-discussed compared to the emergence of the MCU.

The cornerstone of the modern American popular landscape was laid by a serial sexual predator. Built to a blueprint he laid.

While it seems like the cultural mood has shifted on the “X-Men” films, it’s strange to me that this isn’t the catalyst.

Now it's Monday (@Russo_Brothers said we can finally talk about it today.) Here's my reactions via gifs seeing @Avengers #endgame the nightof 4/25/19 #spoilersendgame #spoliers
Me, when the song #DearMrFantasy by #Traffic plays from when @MarvelStudios logo comes on into showing Tony and Nebula still stuck in space way after #thanos snap. #Endgame
#Spoilers
Tony bonding with Nebula.Teaching her how to play paper football.Tony getting weaker, trying to share the last food and water with Nebula. And Nebula not needing to eat, letting Tony know she's fine and that he needs it more. #Endgame #spoilers

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

11 years and 21 films later, #AvengersEndgame is just a few days away. So, here’s presenting the #UltimateMarvelMarathon, where we watch every film in the #MCU, in the greatest Marvel Studios throwback you’ve seen.

Join us, won’t you?
Here's what we are watching on the first day of #UltimateMarvelMarathon.

Which one is your favourite?
#UltimateMarvelMarathon | And so we begin with #IronMan !

"I can’t help but think about how Tony Stark's Iron Man suit has evolved over time. In every film sees the suit change subtly. In #AvengersEndgame it looks like the sleekest it has ever been" | @pradeep_smenon

En este hilo les voy a hacer una guía muy resumida sobre lo que debes saber para disfrutar #AvengersEndgame sin haber visto previamente ninguna película 🤓 También es útil para ese familiar/amigo que no entiende nada y quieres llevarlo al estreno 😅 ¡Abro hilo! 👇
Hace millones de años, el Universo creó SEIS GEMAS poderosas llamadas "Las Gemas del Infinito" 😱 Cada una de ellas controla un aspecto de nuestra realidad:
⏺ Tiempo (verde)
⏺ Espacio (celeste)
⏺ Mente (amarillo)
⏺ Realidad (Rojo)
⏺ Poder (violeta)
⏺ Alma (naranja)
Estas seis gemas son buscadas por diferentes razas alienígenas que desean concretar sus planes. Entre ellos, #Thanos del planeta #TITAN. Este ser vió cómo su planeta se destruyó por culpa de la superpoblación.

I went to see #UsMovie tonight. I’d been looking forward to seeing it for months. I’m a big horror fan, and I loved Jordan Peele’s Get Out.

What did I think of the film?

I don’t know.

Why don’t I know?

Because I’m deaf, and the caption machine didn’t work.
I saw the film at @CineplexMovies in Saskatoon. I’d seen movies there before using the CaptiView machine, which provides individualized captions. It’s an unwieldy contraption with a bendy arm that extends out of a base you insert into the cup holder. CaptiView is also unreliable.
I sat watching the previews (including #PetSematary) and no captions rose on the CaptiView screen. Not unusual. Often the captions won’t arise until the actual film begins.

Then Us began. No captions. I pushed buttons. I made adjustments to try and catch a signal. No go.

Okay I took a few days to process after watching #CaptainMarvel and my take, not that anyone asked, is it was good MCU but not great MCU. Ant-Man/first Cap level, not Black Panther/Thor Ragnarok. It centers women—this is good.

All of its WOC are pushed to the edges. Not as good.
The storytelling was complicated—maybe more than needed—and there were plot flourishes that felt forced (like Goose as Flerkin and the Supreme Intelligence’s projective avatar). It felt like with fewer such Whoa! moments it could’ve had more time to spend developing character.
Specifically, more time examining the relationship between Carol and Maria/Monica (we only really see brief montages and hear exposition on their relationship as kids...yeah Carol kept getting up when she fell but Maria grew up to be a single mom and test pilot, BACKSTORY PLEASE)

🇳🇿1. En el tiroteo de Christchurch, Nueva Zelanda, uno de los tiradores retransmitió por Facebook el ataque terrorista a una de las mezquitas. Mientras se preparaba, dijo a los espectadores: "Y recordad suscribiros a PewDiePie".

¿Por qué? Lo voy a explicar en este hilo👇🏼
🇳🇿2. PewDiePie es el youtuber más famoso del mundo. Desde hace años, lidera la lista de canales con mayor número de suscriptores.

Esto es, hasta la llegada de T-Series, una megaproductora de Bollywood cuyo crecimiento llevaba meses siendo mucho más acelerado que el de PewDiePie.
🇳🇿3. PewDiePie es un gamer, pero desde hace un par de años su contenido es mayoritariamente vídeos de reacción a memes. Su programa más famoso es Meme Review, en el que analiza los memes más relevantes de cada semana.

Capitão Marvel, Miss Marvel, #CaptainMarvel ... A história dos quadrinhos dessas duas franquias é vasta e se amplia por diversos personagens da #MarvelComics. Carol Danvers, Mar-Vell, Genis-Vell, Monica Rambeau...

Segue a linha falando de cada um deles e sua trajetória nas HQs
O primeiro é justamente ao que dá nome a todos eles: Mar-Vell, o Capitão Marvel.

Espião Kree que assume a identidade de Walter Lawson e passa a se afeiçoar aos humanos enquanto escapa das artimanhas de Yon-Rogg.

Aventureiro do espaço que aos poucos se torna simbolo do heroísmo
A trajetória dele passa a sofrer total mudança quando #Thanos (ele mesmo) ameaça todo o universo em sua sede de poder. Isso faz com que Mar-Vell seja escolhido para ser portador da "Consciência Cósmica", tornando-se o campeão da existência.

Acabei de sair de #CaptainMarvel e não tem como negar: que acerto da Marvel. Apesar de ter alguns problemas narrativos em partes pontuais, é dotado do que existe de melhor na fórmula do heroísmo. Um filme solar que homenageia o melhor dos anos 90 em um sci-fi sóbrio e inteligente
Ainda sobre #CaptainMarvel,algumas considerações sobre o filme (até para bater de frente com alguns comentários sem pé nem cabeça dos haters que li antes de assistir)

Segue a linha:
Já falei que me incomodou alguns momentos da narrativa, talvez por culpa de edição não sei, mas isso não é uma constante no filme. E isso não tem nada a ver com a desfragmentação do passado dela e muito menos com a forma como nos é apresentado. Esse é um bom trunfo da película

If you can’t get enough of #CaptainMarvel, you’re in luck! WIRED has a story (or three) for you. Start with the comics—for those who want the full backstory, we sorted through more than 50 years’ worth to figure out where you should start. wired.trib.al/1dECMkf 1/
Next, check out @waterslicer’s review, which examines how the female-specific superhero origin story of this half-human, half-Kree warrior challenges so many of the origin stories that came before it. wired.trib.al/oTW5Rq5 2/
Skrulls have been in the Marvel Comics for decades, appearing as everything from superhero impersonators to religious extremists to cannon fodder in several Avengers brawls. But #CaptainMarvel tells a different story. wired.trib.al/3PfRSyn 3/

Quick thread.
A couple of days ago, I shared this image of my youngest son looking at a picture of #CaptainMarvel.
It got quite a bit of attention. Most of it very positive...
...But it blew me away that people could see this picture, and use it to launch an attack.
As a writer for @DCComics AND @Marvel, I genuinely love the heroes at both companies. And I want nothing but success for all their films and comics. #ManyUniversesOneFamily...
...A friendly rivalry can be fun, but I will never understand those who feel they have to put down one hero to boost another. That’s not how this works. If you love these heroes, and you’ve learned from them, then you know this...

Alright I wanna talk for a second about one of the many (stupid) #CaptainMarvel memes that Sadboys are trying to stroke their hate-boners over.

Specifically the idea that the movie is a) man-hating in general and b) emasculates Fury in particular.

So. A thread. /1
The impetus of this is a ComicsGate adjacent site called CosmicNews or some shit. I'm not interested in sending traffic their way so you can read about it over at We Hunted The Mammoth. wehuntedthemammoth.com/2019/03/10/nic… /2
A lot of it is your basic "WE NEED TO BE ANGRY" bullshit twisting things out of all sense of how they actually happened or straight-up straw-manning into a weird Ship-of-Theseus version of the movie that only exists in their heads.

Then there're the complaints about Fury. /3

On va faire un top du MCU. Ceci n'est que mon avis et il ne s'agit pas de taper dessus pour taper dessus. Par ailleurs, je n'ai pas revu les 3 films avant Captain Marvel, donc il se peut que mon avis sera différent à l'avenir. En attendant, allons-y !
21 - Thor de Kenneth Branagh. Film pauvre en intérêt. Les effets-spéciaux font bien cheap et vieillissent très mal (le film a moins de 10 ans). Chris Hemsworth n'est pas encore à l'aise avec le personnage et en fait des caisses. Natalie Portman semble souvent se demander ce
qu'elle fait là. Kat Dennings est un sidekick insupportable (ce sera encore pire dans le second film individuel). Loki est un méchant en carton et l'intrigue est malheureusement très prévible. Hankeye est juste là deux minutes pour l'introduire avant Avengers, ce qui au vue de

it was so dope in #CaptainMarvel when Maria Rambeau punched the alien in the desert and then she was like I COULDA BEEN AT A BARBECUE!!! and she had to drag it through the desert

#spoilers

me struggling to sleep, wondering if i wrote dessert instead of desert

Vamos aqui converssr sobre #CapitãMarvel sem carteirinha, só sendo de boas?
Filme é filme, quadrinho é quadrinho. Por mais que possamos ler o filme como Tradução de uma linguagem pra outra, vale a pena entender que estamos ali no cinema diante de uma obra autônoma. Livre pra mudar, adaptar e ocultar e que deve ser analidada e medida pelo que é.
Representatividade é conceito, não adianta esvaziar o termo pra esvaziar o filme. Nao adianta dizer que Carol Denvers é sinônimo de empoderamento pura e simplesmente porque ela é mulher e poderosa.

I'm so excited to finally see Marvel's first woman superhero movie. I'm less excited about the fact that many of the biggest publications are having men write their #CaptainMarvel reviews. Want proof? Here's a thread of Captain Marvel reviews written by men.
