Avengers: Infinity War movie review: it’s all been leading to this

MaryAnn’s quick take… Ten years of Marvel superheroism culminates in a battle for the universe itself. Exhausting, bitterly humorous, and gripped in a stunning finality, it’s almost too much to take in, yet somehow not enough. I’m “biast” (pro): big McU fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

Honest Trailer Released For Marvel's The Incredible Hulk

With Avengers: Infinity War coming out this week, Screen Junkies decided to do an honest trailer for Edward Norton's The Incredible Hulk. This was the Marvel movie that came out right after Iron Man and before Marvel Studios knew where they were headed. The movie is part of the McU, but in a way it also feels like the one movie that just doesn't belong because the events of it don't really matter in the McU. The one thing that it really did was introduce William Hurt's General 'Thunderbolt' Ross to the McU. Regardless of the mess that it turned out to be, I still actually enjoyed the film for what it was.

As you might imagine the guys at Screen Junkies had a lot of fun tearing into this movie in their latest episode of Honest Trailers. What did you think of The Incredible Hulk when it was first released?

‘The Incredible Hulk’ Honest Trailer: Before Marvel Studios Had Their Universe on Auto-Pilot

‘The Incredible Hulk’ Honest Trailer: Before Marvel Studios Had Their Universe on Auto-Pilot
This weekend brings Avengers: Infinity War to theaters, and it’s been a 10-year journey to get to his epic crossover of half a dozen comic book movie franchises. Though Marvel Studios might have the Marvel Cinematic Universe sorted out now, when they first started back in 2008, it was a bit of a mess, as […]

Avengers: Infinity War Review

Avengers: Infinity War reviews, what are they good for? Let’s be honest – not much. Marvel’s cinematic branch has been steamrolling its way towards 2018’s inevitable roster shakedown since 2008’s Iron Man, nary a hiccup or roadblock to count. Kevin Feige has effectively reshaped modern blockbuster culture for ten years (and counting), all signs pointing towards this interdimensional doomsday event teased by Thanos’ first post-credits cameo in 2012’s The Avengers. Mission accomplished, achievement unlocked, and now it’s time to see what new box office records Marvel can break. Could Black Panther be dethroned already? (I’m doubling-down on “No.”)

Right, you’ve clicked here for a reason – who am I to deny some early hot-off-the-presses buzz?

“Was it all worth it? The origins, sequels, and spinoffs? Did Marvel answer our prayers?” Yes(ish). No mincing of words. Avengers: Infinity War could have been an easy victim of expectations and brand loyalty,

Will Shuri One Day Appear In A Spider-Man Movie?

Ever since Tony Stark made a quick appearance in the closing moments of The Incredible Hulk, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing Marvel characters cameo in movies belonging to others. Even the studio’s most recent two offerings, those being Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther, played host to memorable guest shots made by Doctor Strange and Bucky Barnes, respectively, thus carrying on the tradition.

Well, with moviegoers still yet to get over their cases of Wakandamania, many are wondering where else a technological prodigy such as Shuri could pop up next. One natural fit in the minds of some True Believers is that of Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, as Peter Parker is quite the geek himself.

Pondering the same thing was Variety, who recently caught up with actress Letitia Wright and asked if a Spider-Man/Shuri spinoff could be in the cards. Here’s what she had to say:

One of IndieWire’s Film Critics Is Watching a 31-Hour Marvel Marathon for Charity — and You Can Help

IndieWire’s David Ehrlich is subjecting himself to a 31-hour Marvel marathon this week, and he isn’t doing it because he loved “The Incredible Hulk” so much. Rather, it’s in support of Everytown for Gun Safety, a charity that, in its own words, works to “support efforts to educate policy makers, as well the press and the public, about the consequences of gun violence and promote efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.”

Ehrlich set a $10,000 goal on YouCaring and is already more than halfway toward meeting it; should any of you dear readers feel inclined to donate, he’ll be even closer.

“While the remarkably brave survivors of the Parkland tragedy have propelled this topic back into the national conversation with the urgency it demands,” writes Ehrlich, “we have to remember that the crisis isn’t only limited to our schools.”

The marathon begins this Wednesday,

The Incredible Hulk Honest Trailer Remembers Marvel’s Forgotten Film

One of the earliest Marvel Cinematic Universe installments, The Incredible Hulk, receives the Honest Trailers treatment ahead of Avengers: Infinity War’s release. Much has already been said about 2018 being the 10-year anniversary of the McU, as the whole franchise started back in 2008 with Iron Man. However, that origin story wasn’t the only Marvel movie to hit theaters that summer. Just one month after Robert Downey, Jr. charmed audiences as Tony Stark, viewers saw Edward Norton play Bruce Banner in his first (and only) turn as the Hulk.

Avengers: Infinity War Spoiler-Free Social Media Reviews Are In

The embargo has been lifted—but don't worry about spoilers! With the exception of a few cast members, Monday's Hollywood premiere marked the first time that the stars of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War saw the film in its entirety. Uniting characters from Ant-Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and Thor against a common enemy—in this case, Thanos (Josh Brolin)—was no easy task. But crticis agree directors Anthony Russo...

All 19 Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)

Nobody on the internet wants to talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s a topic we just can’t go on ignoring. But seriously: even though this seemingly unstoppable franchise has rabid fans across the globe, no one can agree on which ones they like best (or least, for that matter). TheWrap’s Film Reviews Editor Alonso Duralde take his own stab at the subject — and no, he’s not getting paid by anyone at Disney to like (or dislike, for that matter) any of these films.

19. “The Incredible Hulk” (2008)

Released just five years after Ang Lee‘s “Hulk,” this second attempt to make a leading man out of the big green Gamma-radiated creature proved to be similarly disappointing. If we’ve learned anything from the Avengers movies, it’s that Bruce Banner works best when he’s a supporting character (and when he’s played by Mark Ruffalo)

18. “Ant-Man” (2015).

While this movie deserves credit for not putting the fate of mankind on the line — the stakes are more child’s-toy-train-sized — the film’s stabs at humor seem overplayed, and little of Paul Rudd‘s natural charm comes to the forefront of what should be a breezy caper. We can only wonder what Edgar Wright‘s original version might have been like.

17. “Thor” (2011).

Director Kenneth Branagh nails the thee-and-thou of the Asgard segments, but the small town where the climax plays out is one of the screen’s cheesiest fake cities since the terrible 1980s “Supergirl” movie. On the upside, actor Chris Hemsworth demonstrates a twinkly wit in this thunder god adventure, matched with impressive brawn.

16. “Iron Man 2” (2010).

The best McU movies do a good job of distracting you from all the setting-up of future franchise entries; this one offers so much empire-building that it might as well have a “Pardon Our Dust” sign on it. Still, the first appearance of Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, dispatching a hallway’s worth of opponents, made an unforgettable impression.

15. “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011).

Much as he did in “The Rocketeer,” director Joe Johnston excels at portraying the gloss of the 1940s, although the characters aren’t nearly as vivid as the Uso bunting. But fear not, true believers — Cap’s onscreen adventures got way better in his subsequent solo and team movies.

14.”Thor: The Dark World” (2013).

Firmly average, yes, but an improvement on its predecessor and a straight-up good time, skillfully balancing superheroics, second bananas, entertaining villains and the occasional killer one-liner. By no means a cornerstone of the McU, but this one, mostly, works.

13. “Iron Man 3” (2013).

Director and co-writer Shane Black doesn’t always have the tightest grasp on the story — what does the nefarious Extremis do again, and why? — but he shows off his skill at witty banter (which Robert Downey, Jr. can perform within an inch of its life) and breathtaking action (a mid-air rescue of a dozen passengers who have just tumbled out of Air Force One).

12. “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015).

It’s always fun when the band gets back together, but it’s also difficult to recapture the magic of that first time. This sequel offers plenty of excitement and Joss Whedon-scripted badinage, but it’s also a little overstuffed with supporting characters and set-ups for the next round of McU movies. Lovers and haters of superhero movies can both find bolsters for their arguments here.

11. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (2017) The band is back together, and they’re as bristly hilarious as in their first outing, but overall this sequel feels like it’s just vamping (entertainingly) until the next major plot shift in the McU. Kurt Russell pops up as Ego the Living Planet, who claims to be the long-lost father of Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and while the movie is more concerned with character and emotion than plot, not all of the moving moments ring true.

10. “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018): It’s a little tough to judge this one on its own merits since it’s so clearly half a movie; we won’t really know how this film comes to fruition until we get the sequel. But in the meantime, it does a fairly impressive job of juggling some 25 major McU characters and keeping its sense of humor even in the face of mass destruction (and intense scenes involving torture and genocide).

9. “Thor: Ragnarok” (2017)

Director Taika Waititi (“Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) strikes a delicate balance between breathless action and fate-of-the-universe stakes on one hand and tongue-in-cheek silliness and snappy banter on the other. Luckily, he’s got Chris Hemsworth, who excels at both, surrounded by the witty likes of Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and franchise newbies Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum and a gloriously over-the-top Cate Blanchett.

8.”Captain America: Civil War” (2016) .

The plotting and pacing aren’t as tight as in “Winter Soldier,” but if you’re looking for dark human conflict and rousing superhero-on-superhero action, this movie does a whole lot right that “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” did wrong.

7. “Iron Man” (2008) .

It all starts here — a superhero origin story for literalists who can’t get behind exploding planets or radioactive spiders. Jon Favreau, then most famous for directing “Elf” and writing and co-starring in “Swingers,” seemed an odd choice for the material, but he knows how to give us both the characters (played by Downey and Gwyneth Paltrow with panache) and the ka-blam.

6. Black Panther (2018).

While Chadwick Boseman’s titular African king-superhero takes something of a back seat to a troika of fascinating female characters — played by Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright — the movie nonetheless overflows with excitement and rich backstory. (And Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger ranks among the franchise’s greatest villains.)

5. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017) Less guilt-driven and haunted than previous iterations of the character (on the page or on screen), this Spider-Man (Tom Holland) has enough on his plate dealing with his superhero growing pains. Hungry to join The Avengers but still grappling with all he has to learn — he’s only 15, after all — our hero faces off against blue-collar bad guy The Vulture (Michael Keaton, Birdman at last) in an adventure that’s breezy and funny while also featuring genuine stakes, terrific characterizations and wonderfully detailed casting. (You gotta love a teen movie that works in Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Abraham Attah and J.J. Totah, plus scene-stealing newcomer Jacob Batalon.) 4. “Doctor Strange” (2016).

It would be all too easy to make the spell-casting Master of the Mystic Arts look ridiculous on the big screen, but somehow director Scott Derrickson and his crew gave us a version of surgeon-turned-magician Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), who seems at home in the real world, rubbing shoulders with the Avengers, and traversing trippy, eye-popping dimensions where none other could go.

3. “Guardians of the Galaxy” (2014) .

Breezy, flippant and soaking in the super hits of the ’70s, this comedy adventure is something of an outlier — both tonally and geographically — in the Marvel Universe. Still, whether or not Rocket Raccoon and Black Widow ever cross paths, this star-spanning saga was a reminder that there’s more than one way to tell a superhero story.

2. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014) .

Aggressive patriotism meets anti-government paranoia in this exciting tale that pits the Captain against labyrinthine conspiracies. It also turns out that Steve Rogers is way more interesting displaced in time in the 2000s than firmly at home in the 1940s. And you will believe The Falcon can fly.

1. “The Avengers” (2012) .

Still the gold standard of the McU, this movie reveals that Joss Whedon gets comic books down to their DNA, in the same way that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were fluent in the language of serials in the “Indiana Jones” movies. Putting all these heroes in one room (or helicarrier, anyway) yielded terrific results, even if the film’s success led to the all-superheroes-all-the-time ethos of contemporary Hollywood.

'A Quiet Place' Back at #1, While 'Super Troopers 2' Demolishes Expectations

'A Quiet Place' Back at #1, While 'Super Troopers 2' Demolishes Expectations
Early on it looked as if it might be a tight race for the weekend #1, and while the margin was slim, in the end A Quiet Place settled into the spot, topping last weekend's champion Rampage. Stx's I Feel Pretty settled into third over its debut weekend, delivering results a shade over expectations, narrowly topping the outstanding performance from Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2, which more than doubled expectations. With an estimated $22 million, Paramount's A Quiet Place topped the weekend as its domestic cume climbs to an outstanding $132.4 million after just 17 days in release. For comparison, Split and The Conjuring finished with $138.2 million and $137.4 million respectively over the course of their entire domestic runs. In fact, A Quiet Place is now Paramount's highest grossing domestic release since 2016's Star Trek Beyond ($158.8m) as it topped the $130.1 million brought in by Transformers: The Last Knight last year.

The Road to Infinity War: ‘Thor’

Looking back on Marvel’s Phase 1, it’s hard to see how the McU ever got to be as big as it was. Between having sold off most of their key franchises to rival movie studios, the studio’s inexperience at actually making movies and the merely solid quality of a lot of these movies, it was set up to be a good franchise, even a generally great one, but not anything like what it quickly turned into. The mega-franchise really only had one mega-hit until The Avengers in Iron Man. Most people didn’t remember The Incredible Hulk, most didn’t care for

Chris Hemsworth’s Casting Convinced Marvel Thor Could Work

The Avengers scribe Zak Penn candidly reveals that he was initially skeptical about Thor’s chances of translating well on the big screen until he saw Chris Hemsworth. The veteran writer is no stranger to comic book films having written Fox’s X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand before he started writing for the then-budding Marvel Studios.
