Infinity War First Thoughts (No Spoilers)


My first thoughts about the Avengers:Infinity War Movie, don't worry no spoilers here!

Last night I got to see the new Avengers: Infinity War movie at the movie theater. I have a few things I want to mention, but of course I will avoid all spoilers so anyone who has not yet seen the movie can still read this. 

First of all I want to start off by saying that if you're someone who doesn't know if you should watch this movie or think it's being overhyped or anything like that it is definitely worth the hyper and you should definitely go watch the movie. Next in no particular order I need to mention that if you want to watch five MCU movies before this one I would recommend in no particular order the following movies: Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor Ragnarok, Avengers Age of Ultron, Black Panther and Captain America: Civil War. 

The actual movie exceeded my expectations, and I have to say anything you think might happen in this movie probably is not going to happen. It was in no way whatsoever a predictable movie. 

I've heard that a lot of people are skeptical about the movie, because of how many characters are in one movie. What I will say is that at no point is every single character on screen at the same time. There are several different stories going on at once, and some of them do intersect while others do not. The movie does have plenty of funny Marvel jokes so it is not a purely dramatic movie. 

Again without spoiling anything I'll give you this advice, pay particular attention to Thor, Scarlett Witch and Thanos' stories. I'll also warn you some moments will make you mad and other moments will leave you downright shocked. My other piece of advice is to make sure you stay until the end credit scene. There is only one end credit scene as opposed to the usual two end credit scenes, but the end credit scene is very important to the future of the MCU. 

The next MCU movies are Ant-Man and the Wasp sent to be released this summer. It's going to be quite interesting how this movie ties in Infinity War or what the timeline is as far as Ant-Man and the Wasp in relation to Infinity War. After that Captain Marvel is set to be released about a month before Avengers 4, and I'm predicting it will be very relevant to Avengers 4.

Also worth mentioning is that Venom is set to be released soon and is "In association with Marvel Studios" , and Tom Holland's character is supposed to be in the movie. It's been said  that Peter Parker is in the movie, but not necessarily as Spider-Man, so my guess is that it takes place before Peter Parker became Spider-Man or sometime before Infinity War, because after Infinity War you'll realize just how the timeline doesn't quite make sense. 

Overall to close I'm just going to recommend the movie one more time because it was probably one of my top five Marvel Movies. I'll also be posting a more in depth movie review later, but probably not for a few more weeks so I can post spoilers without having to worry that people haven't seen the movie yet. Also please remember that #ThanosDemandsYourSilence and while it will be tempting to post spoilers or talk about the movie with your friends, it is important to be mindful of those who haven't been able to see the movie yet.
