Avengers: Infinity War – The Review

Well, we’ve had the Infinity War Pre-Game episode, the Infinity War First Reaction, but now it’s time to actually sit down and give you the real deal, big enchilada, review of

This is THE film everyone has been waiting for all year. The Russo brothers, responsible for the film, have famously asked viewers NOT to spoil the film for those who see it after them, and we shall do our best to honor that request.

But it is not going to be easy. But fear not, even if we stray into spoiler territory, we will give you ample warning, or I may even just edit those parts out altogether.

Captain American, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, the Hulk…

There’s so many heroes in this film you just can’t believe it.

Avengers Assemble!

We just wanted to take a couple (dozen) minutes to pre-game the movie, engaging in all kinds of wild speculation, while also tangenting off-target like nobody’s business.

Will we be accurate at all about anything?

Who knows?

But we can’t wait to find out.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl footage.

Marvel teased some more of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War during the Super Bowl, and I just have one or two questions:

What is the runtime on this going to be: Three hours? The Russo brothers are going to have their hands full to balance the screen time for all the heroes to prevent complaints that “such-and-so was just a cameo,” and the like. That would be a shame.

Thanos looks better here than he did in the earlier trailer, but someone pointed out that may be a trick of the light, so the jury is still out on that one.

Steve Rogers’/Captain America’s/Nomad’s new Wakandan shield certainly looks cool, but its functionality will be 100% NOT what we—or he, for that matter—is used to. Will it impact his fighting style/effectiveness? We shall see.

A couple of times I thought the CGI looked a bit… wonky. I hope that’s a result of them not actually being 100% completed yet.

If Tom Holland can’t keep a secret about the movie, it’s just a reflection of the fact Spider-Man can’t keep his damned mask on. It’s Peter Parker in Spider-Man pajamas in this footage, too, lol. The mask is there for a reason, Pete!

Overall, I’ve got enough faith in Marvel, and the Russo Brothers, to be worried about this film at a level of approximately 3%. Why 3%? Because you never really know, and unlike some people, if this film manages, somehow, to fall into that 3%, I’ll be ready to talk about it honestly.

But I don’t expect that to happen.

Definitely hoping for an early screening on this one, as well.

See you in May!
