Time to talk about #InfinityWar. I'll keep the hashtag in all tweets.
#InfinityWar is the culmination of 10 years of building a whole connected universe of movies. It is an incredible feat. And all of that was to make it even more devastating to watch it all collapse.
I don't know what their plans are for Avengers 4. But the MCU is effectively changed as of #InfinityWar. It'll be like TV where the second to last episode is really the season shocker. The season finale is just about wrapping up and setting up next season.

I'm going to rant a bit about Thanos. So, if you're one of the twelve people who isn't my mother that hasn't seen #InfinityWar yet, don't read this thread. There will be spoilers.
Except for a couple of years of X-Men in the mid-80s, I never really read comics. I like them-and I've mostly liked comic book movies-but they were never my thing. So I didn't come to the MCU with any knowledge of the backstory or expectations about the stories.
I generally accept changes to stories moving from one medium to another of they're necessary and done well. But I am one of those people who gets annoyed when something I like gets made into a movie or TV show and stuff I consider really important gets screwed with.

Aight. Now that I'm up, this is my official *SPOILER THREAD* for #InfinityWar.

I'll discuss all that I can/remember here and will try to answer questions as they come up!

So. Some preliminary thoughts on #InfinityWar:

#Spoilers
1. The movie's GREATEST WEAKNESS is that it relies on romances that are undercooked af. This hampers all of the pathos that we're supposed to feel due to those relationships.

These relationships in question are Quill and Gamora and Vision and Wanda.

Been a week since I watched #InfinityWar and another week till it’s #GE14, so here’s a thread on which Malaysian #PRU14 calon is which #InfinityWar character.

Spoilers warning ⚠️
Thanos: Najib. The power stone is GST; space stone is redelineation; reality stone is 1MDB; soul stone is Altantuuya; time stone is UndiRabu; and mind stone is cybertroopers. (1/10)
Iron Man: Mahathir. Was supposed to retire but none of us can actually remember him retiring. Everyone thinks he’s gonna die soon. (2/10)

ME: Hi, um. Mr. Thanos, was it?
THANOS: That's correct.
ME: Could we just talk for a second here? I feel like if I'm going to die here, I'd appreciate having a clear understanding as to why.
THANOS: Hm. Well, I don't see why not.

(I now pause for a half hour or so, specifically so @KolarRachel @eflind and others trying to avoid spoilers can mute this thread)
ME: So I understand that your lifelong goal is to curb overpopulation on a galactic / universal level.

#Thanos : Indeed.

ME: So I might disagree with your means, but rationally, I guess I can at least sort of see where you're coming from? Kind of? A little anyway.

Ok @tnyfrontrow I've given some thought about your article in The New Yorker, a very presumed and prestigious news/media/pop culture publication that has been around for quite a long time. I've temporarily stepped out of my comfort zone - 1
2 - to understand the viewpoints that you are attempting to address amidst the flurry and overwhelming amount of Superhero genre movies and television shows that have surged in popularity in the past few years. I've disagreed with some of the reviews in the past, but have not...
3 - ... addressed them as they seemed to still give their fair opinions about superhero movies. Here's the thing, though. I'm not here to address you as a person because I don't know you, and I'm sure that you have a respected following as a writer. What you have failed...

ok you could say the exact same thing about the characters in Homer's Iliad but go off i guess
it is 2018 no one is going to slow-motion explain to you how crossovers work or what the genre conventions are

"um so the god Apollo just...shows up? And then he shoots some arrows? And then he leaves? PRETTY LAX STORYTELLING IMO"

Ok guys, disebabkan aku suka sangat cerita Avengers Infinity War ni, aku nak cerita secara ringkas tentang siapakah “Children Of Thanos” atau “The Black Order” bagi sesiapa yg belum kenal diorang ni [No Spoilers]
Seperti yg kita tau, Thanos memang main character dalam cerita ni. Thanos ingin memusnahkan separuh humanity dalam dunia ni untuk beri keseimbangan manusia dan sumber yg ada dalam alam semester. Asal usul Thanos ni panjang aku nak cerita so korang baca lah sendiri ye.
Demi merialisasikan impian Thanos, dia perlukan 6 infinity stones iaitu 6 jenis kuasa yg jika Thanos dapat kesemuanya, dia boleh musnahkan kehidupan dekat dunia ni dengan satu petikkan jari sahaja.

Gros #Thread à lire avant de voir #InfinityWar !

Si vous n’êtes pas à jour jusqu’à Black Panther, que vous avez oublié la moitié des films Marvel ou que vous voulez juste une piqûre de rappel, ce thread est fait pour vous !

⚠️ RT pour partager la bonne parole ! ⚠️
Sommaire :

- Les pierres d’infinité
- Thanos
- Les héros

⚠️ Vous serez prévenus en cas de spoileur ⚠️
- Introduction

Les films Marvel sont tous reliés entre eux, c’est ce qu’on appelle le Marvel Cinematic Universe (ou MCU) qui ne contient pas les 4 fantastiques, ni les X-men, ni les anciens Spiderman (Andrew Garfield et Tobey Maguire). Voici la liste des films du MCU :

I saw the lovely @FilmFatale_NYC's tweets this morning and I cannot believe I am about to do this, but here we go:
Saying that the MCU's Tony Stark is a "walking embodiment of toxic masculinity" is not only completely off-base but you would have had to WILLFULLY ignore Tony's arc and every movie Tony had been in this far to make this argument.

Like complete ignorance at this point.
Like don't misunderstand me. I have hellllllllllllaaaaaa problems with Tony still. Like hella problems. Like one day, when I have time, I hope to write a piece on him that details what exactly my issues are without any of the condescension I've seen directed this character's way.

I’m watching all of the @Marvel movies with @ThereseTheBeast, we are going in release order over the next 8 weeks leading up to #AvengersInfinityWar

Yesterday was Iron Man, we just started The Incredible Hulk now.

Updating this thread with thoughts and lists as we go #marvel
💭 Most shocking moment so far in the @Hulk 2008 is @LivTyler dating the dad from Modern Family.

Also as much as I like Edward Norton I’m just picturing @MarkRuffalo in my head and this movie is even better.
Putting @Hulk on pause to talk Iron Man.

1. I forgot how we used to talk about Marvel movies being “grounded” or “realistic” especially when it comes to color pallete and portrayal of characters or events.

The colors in Black Panther and Thor 3 have come a long way since 2008.

1. Going through my TL this morning and except for the #InfinityWar trailer, it is a bunch of “are we in full blown authoritarianism yet?” hemming and hawing.
2. POTUS outright promoting white supremacy in our closest ally (I suppose this is payback for being barred from the royal wedding).
3. More commentary on how the guy with a medal of friendship from Putin and promoted by Gates and Rice has single-handedly disemboweled our diplomatic infrastructure.
