I could spend an entire week talking about Avengers: Endgame, believe me I thought about it. Ultimately though, the majority of bloggers of indecisive subject matter like myself are all doing the same thing, spattered with some Game of Thrones. There was one topic I noticed not many writers were focusing much attention on.
It’s inherently difficult to portray the Incredible Hulk on screen and actually create something fun out of the experience. At its core, the story of Bruce Banner/The Hulk is an inherently tragic one, with both the Hulk and Banner trapped by their condition and a desperate search to end everything once and for all. But that doesn’t mean there haven’t been decades of comic books that done lighthearted, entertaining things with the character.
All the way back in February, I wrote a pretty cynical list of my thoughts on the years upcoming Super hero movies. At the time, I felt like I was getting pretty burned out on them. But between Black Panther and Infinity War, I guess I really don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. Why are you even reading this?
The Avengers: Infinity War was an amazing movie. It was incredible, spectacular, astonishing and other such superlatives which also work as alliteration. It’s not just that Infinity War was a good movie though, it was that it felt unique in being the real proof that we could make the comic book cross over transition to the big screen. And do it well.
