Would've preferred if they didn't go the kid friendly way for GotG, but they're still good movies. I prefer big monstrous scary Groot, and 90s action hero Starlord

Now that the true Mandarin has been officially confirmed for the MCU courtesy of Kevin Feige, how do you think that they will introduce the character and him? He is likely bound to debut in the upcoming Shang Chi movie, but that raises another question : How will they execute the character to make him not overly stereotypical?

Spoiler:
Given Iron Man's dead, there's really no reason for The Mandarin. That's like Fox waiting until they've killed off Professor X to introduce Magneto in X-Men. If he's not facing off against his nemesis, why bring him in?

That'd be cool, and it lines up in the timeline, but I'm sure they'll just give the mantle to his daughter like they're likely going to do with Hawkeye and Ant Man.

I could see them try some teen Iron Heart drama stuff.

Not succeeding of course but still.

So with Endgame over and that awesome Captain America scene, I got in thinking earlier: what other, if any, MCU characters could lift Thor's hammer?

The best possible ideas I have is MAYBE Falcon and the Ancient One. I'd also argue Luke Cage from the Netflix series as well, if only for his wholesomeness.

So with Deadpool coming over to the MCU in some way or fashion I just realize how Disney can kill too birds with one stone. Bring in Dafne Keen as Wolverine. They can get a popular female hero and she wouldn't be forced into the role and it gives more time to distance Hugh Jackman from the next Wolverine.

Honestly, this my preferred solution. I think distancing themselves from Wolverine for a while, is what they should. Dafne Keen has only X-23 once, but she definitely one of the highlights from Logan.

X-23 also becomes Wolverine in the comics so I feel like it would be less Backlash if they announce her and said were doing female Wolverine in the MCU and Logan later. Also gives Disney their Lesbian female super hero that can be a lead without forcing it.

I didn't actually realize she was a lesbian.

Seems like every future MCU hero has a daughter groomed to be a hero as well. Why not throw in Dafne Keen to continue the theme?

I'm sure that'd bode well...

I honestly may be completely alone on this, but the more I watch Endgame’s final battle through the various, admittedly poor cam footage on YouTube, the more it starts to feel a bit meh to me. The first half with Thanos’s assault on Avengers HQ, his fight with the big three, and the return and assembling of the Avengers is fantastic, properly intense and bloody hype inducing. But, afterwards, when the big battle starts is when it begins to fall flat for me. And, before it can even think to pick itself up again, the battle is over. Now, there are some awesome singular character moments that happen, but just as a whole it all feels a bit dull to me now.

Compare that to the battle on Titan and the battle in Wakanda in Infinity War, I feel like those two scenarios are a lot better paced and feel more alive and energetic than Endgame’s final sequence. Like I said, verrry unpopular opinion I’m sure, but that’s how I feel about it. Maybe my view will change when I watch it again properly in HD and 4K, who knows.

I still argue Infinty War is better than Endgame personally.

I was also kind of underwhelmed by Endgame's final battle. It got too big, in my opinion, with way too many people involved, and a lot of major characters ended up getting little or no focus as a result. I get that it was intended to be an Avengers movie first, but why even bring the Guardians in if half of them are going to be totally sidelined in the final battle?

If anything besides the third act and final battle I found Endgame underwhelming having expected to go in thinking we were gonna get some grand epic scale of action and adventure throughout. At the same time I suppose it was meant to be build-up but still.

Spoiler:
I also still don't like what they did to Thor! :evil:

Engame's final battle runs into a bit of the same problem as Return of the King's, which despite its greater scope ends up feeling less exciting and dynamic than that of The Two Towers: when things get too big, with too many moving pieces, they start to become abstract. We have a better sense of what's going on - with the specific characters, and with the state of the battle as a whole, in Infinity War.

That said, I still love the final battle of Endgame for all the little moments it manages to capture with characters I've grown to love. While Infinity War is constantly doing a ton of plot work (and using its characters very well to move that plot forward), Endgame is more reflective, more focused on those little moments.

They're both pretty rad, honestly, and I don't see any particular reason to rank one against the other, when they're simply doing different parts of the job required to tell a single story.

I appreciate what Endgame was going for but 8 think Infinity War is far superior. Then again Guardians is my favorite MCU franchise and the Guardians are a big part of IW.

I seriously don’t understand the people who like infinity war more. I have nothing against them, I just don’t get it. Infinity war was boring to me and left me feeling very underwhelmed. Endgame was what I thought infinity war was going to be.
anyway, yeah, macaroni.
