It’s been a long road talking about these movies, and at times I felt like I might be running out of steam writing about them. And I’ll admit that at times I struggled to come up with a unique talking point for each movie that might not be the most obvious, but when to comes to Endgame, I feel like I just need to talk about the MCU as a whole and how it all lead this conclusion of a saga.
We arrive at the penultimate entry in this series, one that has taken me much longer to complete than I had originally expected. But here I am, talking about what I feel was a rare misstep from Marvel Studios this late in their game towards what I’m sure they’d regard as their masterpiece.
If you want to check out the series in its almost entirety, then this link will take you to the link archive, otherwise let’s get into Captain Marvel.
Thinking back to my first time watching the sequel to one of the more dubious Marvel movie concepts back when Ant-Man and the Wasp came out, I remember thinking the movie was not all that; a pale imitation of the first one. Having gone back and watched it again for only the second time since June of 2018, I came to a realisation.
Ant-Man and the Wasp’s biggest problem wasn’t that it was a weaker movie than it’s predecessor, it was that it had the misfortune of being the movie that had to follow Infinity War. A problem the last movie didn’t have when it was coming off the back of the sour taste Ultron had left in many people’s mouths.
Before I get any deeper though, this is coming to the end of a year long series where I go back and watch all of the movies of the MCU from the beginning. If you want to see the archive of posts so far then look no further than this here link. Otherwise, I’ll get into Ant-Man and the Wasp.
