Deadpool 2 is a crass, immature, sometimes vulgar movie which also happens to have a huge amount of heart to it. Quietly, I felt that a lot of the reason the first Deadpool was so successful was because of how unexpected it was: a fresh take on the genre that also wanted to rip it down. Going into the sequel, I was always kind of worried that Deadpool 2 would be a lazy, more of the same, kind of movie. I’m happy to say I was wrong.
I’m still thinking about Infinity War, it’s been rattling around in my brain since I saw it and it won’t go away. There are so many lingering questions, desperate to be answered. So much so that I need to ask them, if not to a person who can answer them, then at least to the internet at large. I’m aware that’s like farting into a wind tunnel, but damn it this is important and I don’t see anyone posing this kind of speculation.
So, I pose to you fair reader; 10 questions I’ve been left with after Infinity War in preparation for the follow up coming out next year. Some serious, some not so much. But questions are questions and I would like to know. Also, spoilers, obviously. If you want to see the movie still I’d come back afterwards.
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.
