  1. Ever since 'Captain Marvel' was announced and Brie Larson took on the role of the strongest Avenger, she's received way too much hate. If hardcore Marvel fans actually don't prefer her in the role of the superhero, that is still understandable, but most of the trolling she faced was mainly from sexist dudebros who personally had a vendetta against Brie or were just too intimidated by a badass female superhero. Whatever that case may be, I feel like she has been judged very unfairly by a lot of people. But, guess what? That doesn't matter that much because the entire Marvel cast has welcomed her into the Avengers family with open arms and couldn't be more happy with her or the character of Captain Marvel. This press tour has already given us so many iconic moments of everyone together, probably for the last time, joking around and having the time of their lives. It also gave us so many great moments of Brie with all her costars.

  2. Marvel has given us a lot of friendship goals, and not just on-screen. The entire cast, especially the OG Avengers, love each other and are always very wholesome and pure on social media. They never shy away from showing how close they are to each other. While most of the time, we're focussed on Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr and their Twitter bromance, there's someone else out there taking over RDJ's spot as the best BFF for Chris. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have always had such a cute friendship and it's so underrated, to be honest. But, we have to thank Mark Ruffalo for bringing it up again and getting this friendship the recognition it deserves. Recently, Mark shared this behind the scenes picture from the sets of 'Avengers: Endgame'. #FBF to our long days on the #AvengersEndgame set ð¾ @ChrisEvans Only 2ï¸â£ more weeks to go! pic.twitter.com/yNYSUhHi6v — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) April 12, 2019 It obviously got a lot of people excited in the replies but the best reply came from Chris himself.

  3. 'Avengers: Endgame' is so appropriately named; it really is the end of an era and it will also be the end of us Marvel fans, for sure. This is probably the last time we'll see all the OG Avengers together for the last time and everyone's already emotional about it and we haven't even lost our favourite characters forever yet. Since it's such an emotionally draining month, someone decided to remember the entire Marvel cast - who are basically BFFs now - in the best way possible. Twitter user @colonelrhodes(twitter.com/coIonelrhodes/ ) compiled a long list of just the entire Marvel cast being wild and fun together while filming their movies, during the press tour and promotions, and on the red carpet and it's just the best Twitter thread to exist, tbh. Chris Evans starting it off by being weird. 1. chris evans randomly talking in a baby voice in the middle of an interview pic.twitter.com/L3uSNnU7Nt — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 This is so wild and so cool. 2. rdj facetiming tom holland pic.twitter.com/ziBYaLYIiz — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 These two are precious. 3. chris hemsworth and tom hiddleston pretending to be dragon ball z characters on the set of thor: the dark world pic.twitter.com/uwydqcuXfV — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 The superior Chrises together. 5. that time the two chrises just absolutely lost their minds during an interview pic.twitter.com/a4IyxMSLo6 — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 The trendiest infinity stone. 5. elizabeth olson saying one of the infinity stones is rose gold coloured pic.twitter.com/SqhWBAKJGn — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 Well, he was his sugar daddy in Ragnarok. 6. jeff goldblum saying hes sure that tom hiddleston is a “tender lover” pic.twitter.com/Kr42ikOzrj — LâHIâH ð°14 days (@coIonelrhodes) April 5, 2019 Do you really want to do that, RDJ?

  4. A 74-second footage from the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' was shared by the official YouTube channel of Marvel Entertainment yesterday and boy, does it give an insight into what awaits us come May when the movie finally drops in theatres near you. The video starts with a close shot of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) staring at what appears to be a holographic model of the earth as she says: “He used the stones again,” clarifying that Thanos is still in possession of the infinity stones. Quick to jump in, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) suggests that the short-staffed Avengers attack the 'Mad Titan' as soon as possible. When Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) asks why they would succeed this time when their first tete-a-tete clearly tanked in great fashion, to which Captain Marvel says: “Before, you didn't have me.” And then we see the whole sparky moment between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Carol Danvers that we slyly smirked at in the trailers released before, followed by Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) saying: “Let's go get this son of a bitch”. Uh... Captain? LANGUAGE! via GIPHY Anyhow, the footage suggests that the team is planning an attack on Thanos and judging by the colour and length of Black Widow's hair, it appears that the scene occurs in the initial moments of the movie when the wounds of losing their teammates and loved ones into thin air are still afresh in the hearts of earth's mightiest heroes. Also, the fact that Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has not made it to the base with his van yet and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) are nowhere to be found in the footage, suggests that it's still early in the movie. Now, we have a theory and this is where we are giving a potential SPOILER WARNING just in case we ruin your lives with our ability to see the future: Still here? Okay! We believe that Carol Danvers loses her life in this attack on Thanos. Underestimating the supervillain who still has control of all the infinity stones regardless of the burned down gauntlet, Danvers might try to take him head on and end up dying. via GIPHY Multiple factors have gone into coming up with the theory: 1. The future of Captain Marvel's independent franchise is foggy. When Screen Rant asked Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, if there is going to be a second Captain Marvel movie, this is what he said: “The making of a first film is in some ways a brainstorm on the future and on what can be. So what it will be again is not clear. But what it could be is pretty amazing.” Open-ended and vague, that's a classic Feige response when it comes to a franchise coming to an end. 2. Judging once again by the colour and length of Black Widow's hair, the latter moments of the movie, during which her hair's longer and the red is finally showing, seem to dwell in a comparatively darker tone, almost as if the team just went through yet another grave loss, maybe losing one of their most powerful comrades. Added insult to injury? Maybe. 3. When the second trailer for the movie had dropped a couple of months ago, the scene in which the Avengers walked through the empty hanger wearing the Quantum Realm/Time Travel Suits, Marvel tried their best to digitally remove Stark and Nebula from the scene. Nonetheless, the empty spaces in between, got the fans to smell something fishy. And very conveniently, the following trailers showed all the characters in the shot. However, Captain Marvel was nowhere to be found even then, suggesting that this might be the second attack of the movie, the final stand against the Mad Titan, the 'all or nothing', the endgame. Of course, there is also a possibility that the footage released by the Studios would not make the final cut and was put out into the internet just to throw nerds like us off track in which case, you won Marvel. via GIPHY Fair win.
  5. Robert Downey Jr loves being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he has never shied away from showing just that. He loves his character, he loves his costars and he just seems to love his life and his job so much. We all know how much fun he has with his Marvel co-stars off screen, we have the 'Science Bros' and of course the ongoing Twitter bromance with Chris Evans. Everyone simply loves him and I noticed one recurring thing in almost every picture he has with all the other Avengers - he's constantly kissing them and showering them with love.

  6. A new 'Avengers: Endgame' video is here and this is literally my mind right now. So, apparently, Marvel and the Russo Brothers were not done yet with toying with our emotions and decided to give all Marvel fans a special look full of reunions and emotions. Tony makes it back from space and is reunited with Pepper. The biggest question was about Tony Stark actually making it back alive and a lot of people were still not convinced, even after the last trailer, so this video is here to tell us that yes, he's safe, for now at least. The special video also gave us something we've wanted since 'Captain America: Civil War' - the much awaited Tony Stark and Captain America reunion! And, it's a great one at that. There's also a cute yet heartbreaking moment between Nebula and Rocket Raccoon. They've lost everyone they knew, it doesn't get sadder than that. We can also see Tony looking at a picture of himself and Peter Parker and the memory of his painful dusting is coming back. **** you, Thanos. Wait, is that Doctor Strange? Did they just give us concrete proof of everyone dusted coming back? Okay, there's still so much more happening, with all the characters gearing up for round two with Thanos, but here's the video.
  7. A few days ago, we shared the news with you guys that music maestro AR Rahman is teaming up with Marvel, to create a special anthem for all the desi fans of 'Avengers: Endgame'. According to reports, the special track was going to be released on April 1 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Turns out the Russo brothers did not pull an April Fool's Day prank on us. Marvel Studios The special song dropped just now and to be honest the song is good, but not something we were expecting to go with the theme of Avengers. The song features AR Rahman as a part of flash mob walking through the streets and singing 'Roke na rukenge ab to yaara', with stills of Thanos and the Avengers plugged in between. Marvel Studios The moment I heard the song, the first thing that came to my mind is that the superheroes are not going to 'avenge the fallen', but actually gearing up for a cricket match against Thanos. Given that the IPL season is on, if BCCI plays this track in a stadium during a match, it will sound like an IPL anthem of a cricket team. Having said that, it is one of those songs that you don't like initially, but grows on you gradually.
  8. Chris Evans is really out there playing with everyone's emotions and if he keeps it up, he'll be demoted to the second best Chris is Hollywood for me. But, for real, the biggest question and the scariest thing about 'Avengers: Endgame' is the fate of the OG Avengers especially Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. Everyone is 90% sure that this movie would be the last Marvel movie for both of them but this is still not confirmed. Everyone is already dreading and crying about Captain America's possible death in 'Endgame' and Chris himself is not making things better for the fans. First, it was his emotional tribute to Cap on the last day of filming and now he's basically joking about Cap dying in interviews. ICYMI, he opened up about a lot of different things in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter recently, talking about everything from Avengers to hating Trump to his retirement rumours. The main part any Marvel fanboy could focus on was his jokes about death, of course. When the interviewer jokingly asked him about the ending of 'Avengers: Endgame', he said, “Yeah, I wish I could. Uh, it's — I mean — it's a good one. It's a real good one. I saw, like, the first hour of it.” The joke continues and he's asked whether it was till Cap's death, and he said, “Right, exactly. After I die by Tony's hand, I just said, You know what? I can't watch this.” Chris, you're on thin fucking ice, don't even joke about it like that. But, also I guess he's the only one allowed to joke about it. Towards the end, he's back with this Cap's death bullshit, and I personally want to go fight him for playing with our emotions this much. He revealed that even he choked up three times while watching the movie because it's that good. Well, looks like we're all going to be bawling our eyes out in the theatre now. The interviewer kept up the joke and asked him if he cried because Cap dies, he said, “Right, it's hard. Seeing my own death. It's going to be a long movie, that's for sure. The first edit clocked in over three hours. My funeral's like an hour.” Chris, this is for you- Well, at least he can't get fired now.
  9. If you're a Marvel fan, the second you read this headline you probably thought, "hey. I'd do it for free"! But jokes apart, an American company called Cable TV is willing to pay $1000 to a die-hard Marvel nerd to basically binge watch 20 MCU movies. © Marvel It's not just hard cash that's going to come their way. The winner will also get lots of Marvel goodies like a Thanos mug encrusted with Infinity Stones, a Captain America popcorn popper amongst other super cool things. This is a promotional event for the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame' and hence, they want someone with a high level of patience and will love to binge-watch this truckload of action more than anything else. The company is looking for a Marvel nerd who can over-enthusiastically live-tweet their entire experience and also have an outgoing personality. As a submission to participate in this contest, one needs to sum up in 200 words so as to why they are the ideal choice. Sadly, this is only valid for people living in America and over the age of 18, so well, there's a lot of FOMO attached here. Maybe you can help a friend living in the US to apply for it.
  10. Marvel vs DC is an argument that will never end, even when Jason Momoa has said “screw it”, and supported all the other superheroes from other universes as well. © Instagram But, fans always love a heated debate on crucial matters like which cinematic universe is better, which superhero is better than the other, and now, even which villain is better. A new form of Marvel Vs DC argument began yesterday, with people trying to figure out who's a better villain - Thanos or Bane. Thanos or Bane? Let's argue. — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 Both of them have proved how powerful and well, villainous, they are in their own right. I mean, Thanos basically defeated the Avengers the last time we saw him, and 'dusted' half the life in the entire universe and Bane is, well, the bane of Batman's existence. And thus, a discussion began. Compelling argument. Bane lost to Batman, Thanos destroyed the Avengers. — David Weissman (@davidmweissman) March 5, 2019 Well. Bane lost to the dude that took down the Justice League, depending on how you slice things — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 There's a lot of love for Thanos. Thanos no question. U caping for DC Comics I see lol — Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 5, 2019 A very, very important addition. pic.twitter.com/UzpQ2Cor1G — Edgar Fernandez (@Edgar_usmc) March 5, 2019 More love for Thanos. Okay. Thanos defeated the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Bane was essentially Talia's henchman who got taken out by Catwoman pressing the wrong button on the Batpod. — Sean Campbell (@Melanism) March 5, 2019 Good point. Thanos hung his own jersey from the rafters... #NoBrainer pic.twitter.com/GQldt3TcwS — Chuck Whitlock II (@2Kalculated_) March 5, 2019 Thanos, all the way. If it's Bane from Dark Knight Rises, Thanos wins in a landslide. If this is juiced up, big hulking Arkham Asylum/comics Bane.......Thanos wins in a landslide https://t.co/zCyVpk9oET — Vox da ghost (@Goldyvox) March 5, 2019 Oh, wait. “Thanos or Bane? Let's-“ *snaps* https://t.co/Nv6frGjJV7 — lauren warrenðSXSW (@iamlaurenp) March 5, 2019 A nicely put argument. If you're asking who would win in a fight, Thanos would beat Bane without breaking a sweat, infinity stones or not. He's a titan. If it's whose performance was better, Tom Hardy is 3 car lengths ahead of Josh Brolin. — Rusty Westerholm (@RustyWesterholm) March 5, 2019 Thanos wouldn't dare. Bane even died in a cartoonish way. Got hit by Catwoman crashing in on a moped. Thanos would never. — ðððATLANTA IS A SOCCER TOWN! ððð(@Lex_Naija) March 5, 2019 No one can compete with Thanos' powers. Hmmmm………. Tough question. I'll say it depends on what we are comparing here. Physical powers? Ideology? Their respective personal stories? Bane's story and personality are far more interesting but Thanos's powers are not up for discussion. https://t.co/zkgvptb63H — Puff Mammy. (@PaolaAudrey) March 5, 2019 Some love for Bane. This isn't even a contest. Bane broke Batman without a bunch of all powerful infiniti stones. His motive is he just wants to burn everything down because society is too corrupt. That's more interesting than some arbitrary bullshit about getting rid of half of everyone. https://t.co/8sbwKkh72e — Chett Manley (@ChettManley) March 5, 2019 Finally. Tryna figure out how in any universe Bane vs Thanos is even up for discussion ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/93IpHV0qoV — Jay Papito De'leon (@BIGMONEY_JAYYY) March 5, 2019
  11. Yes, you read it right. If things do go right, ace musician Bappi Lahiri soon might be the sound master for one of the Marvel movies in the near future. He is already in conversation with the production team and things are looking good for him. © Instagram Well, if you remember, his song 'Jhoom Jhoom Baba' was used for 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' back in 2017 and even Chris Pratt was taken by surprise. "I am currently in talks with Marvel Studios. They had used my song Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom baba. Chris Pratt, the hero of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, had really liked the song. So maybe a song (by me) will be used in their next film. I will go to Hollywood in April," Bappi told IANS in a telephonic interview. Bappi Lahiri will also be seen in a fantastic collaboration with rappers Snoop Dogg and Akon as well. Bappi Lahiri is already making a movie this year titled 'Ek Adhura Sangeet' © Instagram If you're wondering about a possible biopic on the interesting man, well, he has had the same thought. There is nothing in the pipeline yet but he wants Ranveer Singh to play his role, if at all this happens. The man has a career that expands over 4 decades, so well, are you ready to listen to some Bappi Da in the next Marvel adventure?
  12. TV actors in the Indian industry are not just about good acting or playing second fiddle to lead women in 'saas bahu' dramas anymore. With the evolution of content on Indian television, the quality of acting and the way our actors portray themselves have remarkably changed in the last few years. Rajat Tokas, who is best known as Prithiviraj Chauhan and is currently seen in 'Naagin 3', has undergone quite an unbelievable transformation in the recent times. © Instagram Yeah, that's the same guy, with a better body and even better acting skills now. While his fans have been wondering how did this happen, Rajat has managed to surprise everyone continuously when he became super ripped for his stint in 'Naagin 3'. View this post on Instagram It's so disappointing that after so much hardwork, there's different angles to make you look good or bad.

How they hell he manages to work round the clock and maintain that crazy physique is beyond our understanding but the talented actor is not letting anything stop him now. Rajat recently shared a picture of his ripped self urging Marvel Studios to actually cast him as the next Wolverine and well, the man's got the abs to back it up as well. View this post on Instagram @marvelstudios all I need is one opportunity to prove myself. And trust me I won't disappoint. Never have, never will. Will literally live and breathe the character... A post shared by Rajat Tokas (@rajattokas19) on Feb 7, 2019 at 9:33pm PST Wonder what Hugh Jackman has got to say about Rajat being in his shoes! © Marvel Well, if the hunt is indeed on, we'd love to see our 'desi' Wolverine get some claws and nail the character.
  13. Paul Wight, more commonly known as Big Show, has been in the business of bursting his opponents' chests with open-arm slaps and knocking them out with a direct punch to the face with a fist as big as a freaking frying pan for a little over 24 years. Making his not-so-impressive debut with the World Wrestling Association on 24th December 1994 - a match he lost by countout - Big Show made it to the big stage a year later with the World Championship Wrestling. Getting into some of the greatest duels with the biggest names of the wrestling world like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, Big Show soon became one of the top in-ring performers in the world. According to his fellow wrestlers, an extremely 'safe' wrestler to perform against, the 7-feet-tall Show had constant health issues because of his massive size and heavy weight resulting in major medical problems such as having an irregular heartbeat, chewed out joints and constant agony for years. Shifting between 'fat' and 'less-fat' body types, over the years, Big Show often asked the typically jacked colleagues like Triple H and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson about their diet plans but could never get a definite response out of them. “When you take the time and do the research (about nutrition) it's more about what suits you, not what suits everybody,” Show spoke out on Conan O'Brien's chat show. One fine day, in what was a comparatively short conversation between Big Show and John Cena, Show talked about how weird it would be for the giant to have abs and Cena said: “Yeah. A giant with abs. That wouldn't be marketable at all,” as he walked away. Cena's words brought a reality check for the wrestler. He realised that coming up with a complete transformation would not only bring him better health, it could also bring along a new in-ring life for the athlete who was desperately searching for his lost mojo. “You don't make the transformation I've made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training,” he told WWE.com. “I wanted to make a change, and I was given the time and opportunity to make a change, so I took advantage of it.” While in the initial days of Show's new determination to transform himself, his body didn't respond to his efforts uniformly, but as the kilos dropped, his muscular physique soon began to come out, which further motivated the big man to do better. The result? Hey @Shaq...glad your training!! Because so am I! #GiantAbs #WrestleMania pic.twitter.com/1WepdkHqWj — “The Big Show” Paul Wight (@WWETheBigShow) January 15, 2017 Show's heaviest was 244 kg. He brought it down to 210 kg and finally Show's current weight is a phenomenal 170 kg! What's really worth marvelling at is the fact that Show not only lost so much weight but also kept his muscles. And guess what, a giant with the giant abs and giant biceps looks a lot more terrifying (a lot more sellable) as compared to a blob moving around the ring with a broken hip in his black tiny spandex! We hope to see Paul 'Big Show' Wight back on the WWE roster soon. Until then, let's leave the big guy to himself with a small 'Happy birthday' note.

  15. Instead of the Avengers assembling, this time we had a pure moment of Marvel fans assembling to make a dying man's wish come true. A 33-year-old Marvel fan from Australia named Alexander is suffering from liver cancer, mouth cancer, and the rare genetic disease Fanconi anaemia which affects the bone marrow, and he thinks he could die before the official release of the movie 'Avengers: Endgame'. Being a huge fan, he decided to try his luck and asked people to help him get an early screening of the movie with a post on Reddit. But, he also noted he's “not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story”, just a normal guy. He thought he would make it to April, but his “bone marrow is toast”. It's good to see that even with so much happening, Alexander hasn't lost his sense of humour since the Reddit thread is called “Dying Before April: My Endgame”. Obviously, anyone would do anything to catch an early screening of one of the most awaited movies, but this is a special case and all the Marvel fans united to get Marvel and Disney to take notice. The internet came together and the hashtag #Avengers4Alexander spread on Twitter. With an update on the original post, he informed everyone that even apparently Chris Hemsworth, God of Thunder himself is aware of the situation because “Australia is a small place, turns out I know a guy who knows a guy who is chums with Chris Hemsworth”. With so many well wishes coming his way, he also wrote, “I don't know what the outcome will be but this has been amazing. If it doesn't pan out don't sweat it - I'll carry your kind words with me and that's worth far more.” He also took a cheeky shot and said, “Lastly, I don't mean to be greedy but since I'm triple dying can we throw Captain Marvel into the mix?” With this request, he also shared a picture of his dog as a bribe. And then, it finally happened, Disney reached out to him and the whole thing turned into one of the those rare, beautiful internet moments where everyone works together. Sharing the exciting news, his last update on the Reddit post is - “Disney have reached out and we are discussing options. I cried when I read their email. It's everything I hoped for and I owe it to all of you.” People on Twitter are also very excited about his wish come true and have nothing but appreciation for everyone who held make it happen. A man will get his dying wish fulfilled. Thanks to the beautiful internet. 10 years back this wouldn't have been possible. This is some good stuff that we have achieved.https://t.co/xacO9U6KKc#avengers4alexander#avengersforalexander#AvengersEndGame #10yearchallenge — Anuj Godase (@dahelmetguy) January 19, 2019 Sometimes, it is.

  16. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
  17. “MenXP, are you using internet explorer?” “Admin, the trailer came out like 10 days ago.” “Admin, keep up, we already know everything, you're late.” Before anyone comments anything like this, I'm saying sorry, yes everyone did the story as soon as the trailer comes out and not 11 days late like us, but at least better late than never. Thank you. The trailer is tragic, obviously, but it's still brilliant. I mean Marvel finally gave us the trailer but they made the trailer in such a way that you still can't figure out exactly what's happening. This has given rise to plenty of fan theories already and if you want to read about some of those, we'll have you covered, just check MensXP in the next few days for those. Coming back to the trailer, here are some things that stood out for me after watching (and rewatching, and rewatching, and rewatching…) the trailer and the things that might have been missed by some people when they watched the trailer. 1. The A in the title reveal 'reassembling' The title reveal in the trailer is pretty cool, to say the least, and it might be giving us a hint because Marvel doesn't do anything randomly, it's all calculated. Okay, just look at the A coming together, or rather reassembling, so it could be pointing to all the characters who turned to dust coming back together. Basically, the trailer might be telling us for sure that everyone will come back and honestly, that's the kind of positivity I need in my life. 2. Whose hand is that? The trailer sets it up to look like it's Nebula's hand on Tony Stark's shoulder but we all know Nebula's hand doesn't look like that and we all also know how misleading Marvel trailers can actually be. Well, my guess is that it's Captain Marvel there to save Tony since she's going to play a huge role in the movie. 3. Shuri also turned to dust in Infinity War It's kind of a blink and you miss it moment but when Bruce Banner is looking at Scott Lang's picture in the missing people database, you can see a slide with Shuri's face which quickly turns to Peter Parker. This kind of contradicts the assumptions people made about how Tony was getting help from Shuri because of some set pictures that showed Tony somewhere that looked like Wakanda. 4. Whose hand is it? Part two Seeing Peggy Carter's picture in the trailer was unexpected to say the least and again the trailer sets it up to look like Steve is actually holding that. But come on, it's not Steve's hand but rather a woman's. Could it be Natasha holding it? Is it foreshadowing Cap's death? 5. 'Endgame' has been mentioned not once but twice before 'Avengers: Infinity War' is still fresh in everyone's mind and so are Dr. Strange's words foreshadowing the title of this movie - “We're in the end game now.” But, it has been referenced in the Avengers movie preceding Infinity War as well. Yep, Tony said the line “That up there, that's the endgame” in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.
  18. We owe everything to Robert Downey Jr. No, seriously. Do you remember a time where we went without like at least two spectacular superhero movies in a year? Me neither, all thanks to Marvel and DC. It's really hard to imagine not getting kickass movies with our favourite characters everywhere and we all know who we have to thank for that, even our very own Aquaman, Jason Momoa knows. During an interview with The Toronto Sun, Jason gave the credit where it's due when he was asked about why it took so long for a mainstream solo 'Aquaman' movie to happen. Yeah, we have had Batman and Superman for ages and even the interviewer pointed it out. But Jason gave all the credit to the one character who gave birth to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man. He said, “The only thing about it now is, people want more. They've heard those other stories, and there's plenty more to tell, but they want new ones. When Batman v Superman came out and it introduced Wonder Woman, she came in and blew it open. I feel like Marvel, in its own right, has been blowing the door open with other new characters as well. I mean look what Iron Man did. That was amazing. Who knew what the hell Iron Man did? I definitely didn't. I feel like I knew more about Aquaman, and I barely knew anything about Aquaman over Iron Man (laughs). Robert Downey just came in and destroyed it. So there are all these beautiful, modern mythologies that people get inspired by and it's nice to see something different.” We all love Batman and we still do, but come on, we need more heroes, and Marvel and DC have been delivering that for so long now and the audience is loving it. It's hard to believe now but before 2008, Iron Man was not even a mainstream superhero and now it's a household name. Comic book movies have come a long way and it all can be kind of traced back to RDJ since he's the one who brought the character out of the minor leagues. What Iron Man did for Marvel ten years ago, that's what Wonder Woman did for DC. As Jason said, she came in and blew it open!
  19. We all knew Captain Marvel was the last resort and also the last saving grace for the Avengers, when a disintegrating Nick Fury 'paged' her in the end credits of 'Infinity War'. Her importance in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' shot by leaps and bounds following the incredible trailer of 'Captain Marvel', where we got a fair sense of what she is capable of – which is basically mind-blowing, boundless power. Even though I have been following Captain Marvel for a long time through comic books, and am fully aware of her powers, I can't help but confess that I was a wee bit doubtful if she would be of any help at all. Especially with Thanos now in possession of all the Infinity Gems- Soul Stone, Reality Stone, Mind Stone, Space Stone, Time Stone and Power Stone. However, Brie Larson, who is playing Captain Marvel just said something insanely awesome to put my doubts to rest and also confirmed that she is definitely going to bring the pain right to Thanos' doorstep. In an interview to TNT Brasil, when asked that even though Captain Marvel was among the strongest superheroes in the Marvel Universe, Thanos could probably give her a run for her money, Larson simply shrugged and said with a nonchalant expression, “he looks kinda shrimpy to me.” OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! MIC DROP!!!! Look at that face! Look at the confidence! That's the face of someone who KNOWS she is gonna kick some purple ass! Look at the choice of her words. 'Shrimpy'! I mean, come on. This is Thanos we are talking about. The dude who single-handedly wiped off like half of the MCU. Even Thor's Stormbreaker had zero effect on Thanos when the axe was embedded in his freaking chest (why didn't you go for the head? Goddamnit Thor!) So, given Larson's statement, I have no trouble believing she has something seriously terrible planned for the Mad Titan and is probably just counting the days for her encounter with 'shrimpy'. What do you guys think? Captain Marvel can take on Thanos? Or, is she also going to turn to crumbs? Let us know in the comment section.
  20. DC vs. Marvel is the battle that will never end. We have equally enthusiastic fans on both sides that have their valid points to prove who is better. But there is one superhero that no one hates. The one who is admired by all! We can safely say that he's the Rahul Dravid of the superhero franchise. Yes, we're talking about the one and only, 'Batman'! Let's try to decode why he is loved by all: 1. The Relatable Humanity In the super-heroic world full of demigods and super-humans, we have a human being who is doing everything he can to save his city – Batman. We like him because he's fully human. He's the superhero who doesn't have any superpowers and still rose above all. He neither comes from an alien planet nor does he have a magic ring to give him superpowers. He is just a man who fought his weaknesses to be compared to the mighty superheroes. Not just compared, but he did beat the God himself! Remember 'Batman vs. Superman'? 2. The Self-Made Man Kal-El was gifted with the strength of steel which made him Superman. Peter Parker got lucky and became Spiderman. But Bruce Wayne became a superhero on his own. He overcame his fears, fought his demons, left his lavish home, learned martial arts and came back to save his city as Batman! Bruce saw his parents getting killed. He was raised by his butler. He had more money than anyone could think of. Yet he chose a different lifestyle. Remember how Nolan's Bruce maintained a playboy image to avoid suspicion of him being the Batman? That was because people expected him to be a millionaire playboy! And no one would have blamed him had he been one. But he chose a different path and served his city. 3. The Never Say Die Attitude It is easier to fight when you're a demigod or a superhuman as you know it is next to impossible to kill you. But fighting, getting defeated and getting up again to fight when you're human, is commendable. Bane almost broke Batman. Not just his spine, but his spirit too. Yet, Batman came back, stronger than ever. “I do fear death. I fear dying here while my city burns and there's no one to save it.” 4. Being The Dark Knight Batman has his own shades of life. He has his flaws and limitations. His darkness is quite alluring. The 'man' has comrades who can fly, run faster than light, read minds and yet he is the one who intimidates them when he walks into the room. Such is his persona! Batman could have been a vengeance-seeking hero who kills people. But he controlled his inner darkness and didn't let his human side go. That's what we love about him. He didn't leave his roots, he didn't forget what his father taught him. He still remained a human, despite being a superhero! As we grow up, we realise that there's no magic in this world which can make our problems go away. And there's no sky out of which a man in blue will come to save us. It is us who have to get up, take a stand, and fight our battles. Just the way Batman did. Maybe that's why we can relate to Batman more than any other superhero. Maybe that's why we love Batman more than any other superhero!
  21. There's only one thing Mark Ruffalo is known for more than playing the character of The Hulk. Well, any guesses? It's an easy one. Giving out spoilers of course, and if you are a Marvel fan, you know how seriously Marvel and the Marvel fanbase actually takes spoilers. But, we all still love Mark, even though he f*cks up sometimes, he's like a little puppy that you can't stay mad at. Instead of showing disappointment, let's all celebrate this man and how much extra information he gives all the fans, accidentally of course. Here's us looking back at all the times Mark didn't know when to shut up - or shut off his phone - which probably landed him in hot water with Marvel and Disney. The first, and the arguably the best, Mark screw up till date has to be the Instagram live incident at the premier of 'Thor: Ragnarok'. The poor guy was just trying to do something nice for the fans by going live on Instagram but didn't realize he never ended that live. Oh, Mark. So, he ended up 'leaking' his own movie at the premier itself and over 2000 people heard the starting of the movie. Oops! He also revealed how everything went down at the theatre later on as well. Basically, his phone was blowing up with people trying to inform him he was still live but he didn't want to check his phone while watching a movie and here's when his manners shouldn't have mattered. Disney had to literally send someone to yell at Mark to turn off his phone. Then comes an 'Avengers: Infinity War' spoiler that no one even realized was a spoiler at the time. I would like to apologize for bringing up the ending of that movie but it's important. While we were aware that we would see many characters die in this movie, no one expected the list to be that long. It was impressive to see how Marvel kept this all under wraps but then an interview of Mark Ruffalo and Don Cheadle with 'Good Morning America' from last year resurfaced and became really relevant again because obviously Mark really couldn't help himself from giving out a major spoiler. Classic old Mark, tbh. Uh oh, @DonCheadle, is @MarkRuffalo going to get in trouble with @MarvelStudios now!? #InfinityWar #D23expo pic.twitter.com/WR5C1QCBTb — Good Morning America (@GMA) July 16, 2017 While talking about 'Thor: Ragnarok', “Every other Marvel movie, it doesn't end well for the superheroes.” Well, he should've stopped at that but of course, he added, “Wait till you see the next one, everybody dies.” Oh, Mark. Don's reaction probably summed up Marvel's reaction as well. And then comes the time when he was 'fired' from MCU after giving out spoilers during an interview with Jimmy Fallon. The best thing about Mark, though, is that he at least tries to cover up his mistakes and that's what he tried this time as well. But, since he doesn't think before speaking about multimillion-dollar movies, he obviously doesn't think before tweeting about it as well. .@JimmyFallon, I trust that you will cut my spoiler slip on the show tonight. That was “off the record” homey. Please don't get me in trouble with Marvel (Barry) again. DM me back. M — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 5, 2018 Here's the clip in question - I LOVE YOU @MarkRuffalo WITH OR WITHOUT SPOILERS #FallonTonight pic.twitter.com/ZSkPJfdp2v — αâÑ | IT'S MARK AND SCARLETT'S BIRTHDAY (@bannersfluff) October 6, 2018 This spoiler incident was obviously a joke and Jimmy kept it up as well. Dude, it's too late - already sent the final show to Burbank for air. Are you sure you're gonna be in trouble? We could maybe bleep it out. What is “DM”? https://t.co/GMds1hGO8X — jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) October 5, 2018 But, it was too late. The Russo brothers got to know about it before Mark could fix it, and well, now you know the reason if The Hulk does not show up in the next Avengers movie. Mark, you're fired. — Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) October 6, 2018 He also did some damage control. Guys... can we talk about this? https://t.co/PYe56UiUgO — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 7, 2018 In the end, I would just like to say that Mark please never stop giving us spoilers, we're all waiting for anything about 'Avengers 4'. So leak something already. Thanks.
  22. hree words – Robert Downey Jr. You know who he is. You know what RDJ loves more than anything in this world? Marvel, of course. It's no secret that the role of Iron Man literally changed his life and even we can't imagine anyone other than him as Tony Stark. To be honest, he was born to play the superhero and he embraces that fact fully. His online presence is mostly just about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it's not just about promotion or anything, because let's be real, Marvel don't need no promotion. So, here's a bunch of times Robert Downey Jr was the biggest Marvel fanboy and we all loved it. Infinity gauntlet got a luxurious update.

  23. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has always been guilty of some of its half-hearted romances, given the female characters from the MCU play very 'unlike female roles', for them to build a stronger romantic narrative. Of course, this view is very subjective but the bit about half-hearted romance not so much. When Stan Lee wrote most of the characters for the MCU, he carefully crafted their relationships and gave them very distinct dynamics. Be that of brotherhood, a mentor/mentee, siblings, frenemies, or even lovers; each equation was build on trust and history, that moulded their dynamic separately. While I am not sure if Lee was an ardent believer of love and romance, he surely did create some relationships based on pure fierceness and love, that never made them leave each other's side. © Walt Disney Studios In recent film franchise, we've seen the MCU get a little better at the love thing though. I remember watching the first Spiderman movie that was released with Toby Maguire and thinking 'wow, this guy's a wimp in the romance department but even so, he gets the damn girl'. Something very co-relational to Lee's interpretation of Spiderman and MJ's dynamic in the comic books. I did enjoy their relationship though. He always chose his responsibilities over loving her, or allowing her to ever get hurt, by revealing his identity or even by leaving her for doing what's right. I always imagined a love like that could never really die! And it didn't. It probably evolved along the way. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures So, keeping the love alive, and Lee's memory intact in all the future frames Marvel produces, here are some of the most iconic romantic relationships shared between two people in the MCU, both from the movie franchise and comic books. (1) Tony Stark & Pepper Potts (Iron Man) The relationship between Pepper and Tony has not just been well developed but sustained throughout the franchise, with additional scenes from 'Infinity War' and 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Pepper is the person Tony has always relied upon and even during his character build-up during 'Civil War', he's seen to be grieving her absence. The fact that she takes care of his needs and wants, gives the two characters so much heat and builds the basis of love between them. © Paramount Pictures While Ironman does entertain the people with humour, sarcasm and his wit, I don't think enough attention is paid to the developing romance between Tony and his woman. I also think the romance bit was an important crux for Ironman and if you see the subtlety of it, Pepper is always the antithesis of Tony. When the audience is losing hope in him she's always there to remind people to be patient and have enough faith in their hero and of course, she does the same for him. It's a beautiful narrative of their subtle love for each other. I guess men can learn to be true to their 'heart' and keep their love going in abundance just like Tony has for Pepper, over time! (2) Peter Parker & Mary Jane (Spiderman) Peter Parker and Mary Jane are one of the most iconic stories in both comic book lore and the movies. They've had each other's back for a long time and have gone through Green Goblins, Doc Oc's and Civil Wars together and survived. Jane was Parker's childhood love and that's the purest love that can ever exist and building a narrative of that through a comic book, is an exceptionally well-kept romance! © Marvel Comics The love they had had for each other was so precious that Mephisto wanted it as barter. That's when Jane made a deal with Mephisto that resulted in Peter and her never getting married. Well, you win some, you lose some! Ultimately they don't really end up together or get married, but Jane did tell Parker that their love was so strong that it would find its way back, eventually! Sigh! Remarkable dedication and pure honesty is what true love is all about after all. Every man should definitely learn how to love in the purest sense, despite the responsibilities overburdening his shoulders. (3) Peter Quill & Gamora (Guardians Of The Galaxy) While there has been a romantic liaison between Peter and Gamora in the past, there has been some serious romantic development between them in Infinity War. They exchange their 'I love yous' but Gamora also tries to convince Peter to kill her just so she doesn't fall into the hands of Thanos. He, of course, can't kill his one and only love, can he? Of course, he can. He does take his gun out to kill her while she's in Thanos's grip but bubbles instead of bullets come out of his gun. Any guesses why? Not only did he respect Gamorás wishes, he even sacrificed his one true love for what she willed when the time had come How many men do that nowadays? © Walt Disney Studios (4) Storm & T'Challa (Black Panther) Yup, we've usually seen Storm single in the movie franchise and T'challa with Nakia, but in the MCU comic series, the relationship between these two was great. They were actually married to each other for 6 years before they separated. They were also very similar in many ways. Both were warriors, both lost their parents at a very young age and they both understood what it was like to have the weight of the world on their shoulders. The only problem was that their relationship wasn't given much importance in comic books and it was fast-tracked and there was a giant jump from the time when they met as kids to when they fell in love as adults. Even after their separation, Storm and T'challa worked on their relationship and didn't let it die down immediately. I guess the only lesson men can take from T'challa is to always support their lady love, no matter how the relationship is going! © Marvel Comic (5) Vision & Wanda-Scarlet Witch (Civil War) I think they had a very twisted dynamic in all of MCU, which was worth a mention here. It's actually a romance between two unlikely characters. While in the movie it may seem like a fairytale, the comics depict a different picture altogether! In the comic series, he used to be a synthezoid automaton, created by one of Avenger's greatest enemies and she was a spell caster, who was always on the wrong side of the law. © Marvel Comic When Vision and Scarlet both joined the Avengers as outsiders, they both had a troubled past. When they got together, it actually made their equation quiet unexpected and adorable, to say the least. ' He was a robot who wanted to feel everything human and she was a mutant looking for acceptance. It actually fit perfectly and that's the dynamic we see in 'Civil War' and later in 'Infinity War' as well. I can only sum up this equation by qualifying it as 'twisted love'. © Walt Disney productions MCU has a string of other 'sweet romances' that I haven't listed. For example Hulk and Black Widow, where their relationship was more philosophical and seemed a little forced in an already stuffed 'Age of Ultron'. It just felt like an unnecessary distraction. But other than that we have Luke Cage and Jessica James, T'Challa and Nakia, Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter, to name a few, all filling in major gaps in the romance department of the MCU! So, all in all, the MCU is not just Stan Lee's heartless power force, but a subtle meltdown of action, love, romance, responsibilities, eccentricities and of course power. I suggest you read some comic book romances if you really want to understand the dynamic the romantics shared in the invincible MCU.
  24. The world came to a standstill when the newsflash hit everyone's phones: Stan Lee had passed away. Honestly, I had to check across multiple portals to check if this was a hoax or not, but once this gut-wrenching piece of news was confirmed, the first thing that popped in my mind was- “Oh my God, Marvel movies without Stan Lee in it? How will this even work?” via GIPHY I don't know if I am the only one who does this, but whenever I see Stan on the big screen making a badass cameo out of nowhere, I instantly go into fanboy mode without giving a damn if the dude next to me is judging me or not! via GIPHY The cheers, clap and whistles just come pouring out as soon as I see him making a trademark sarcastic comment about superheroes. This is my personal favourite. via GIPHY Now that he is gone, it is hard to imagine a Marvel movie without him. I mean, of course, it will still be mindblowing, but I won't be eagerly waiting for Stan anymore to pop on the screen and shoot a snarky line…and that breaks my heart. via GIPHY Stan was probably the biggest fan of his own work, as evident by his dedicated appearances at every movie premiere, comic book conventions and public signings. © AP Keeping in mind that this was a man above 90, who like his peers, should've been resting or just be on the down-low and spend his time golfing, it was incredible how enthusiastic he always was. Stan was the biggest personification of the quote “age is just a number” and a walking contradiction to the common notion, that 'old people' are not cool. via GIPHY It does make one wonder that why did not take a break from his movie career? I mean, it would not have been out of the norm. Actors his age often silently walk away from the spotlight, but Stan was always there and never broke under the pressure of the industry. Back in 2016, Stan told the Hollywood Reporter the reason behind him not retiring, and the answer is typical Stan. “When you retire, you have a chance to do all the things you've always wanted to do. I've been doing all the things I've always wanted to do. I've always wanted to be involved in entertaining people.” Wow. If that's not the most incredible thing you've heard, then I don't know what is. via GIPHY The man knew what he and his work meant to his fans. He knew the importance of the universe that he had created and always reminded himself, that in a way, he was helping people. “I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you're able to entertain, you're doing a good thing.” Stan once told the Washington Post. via GIPHY His life and his works are proof that you won't hate your job if you love what you do. It goes without saying that Stan Lee is irreplaceable and that his loss will take a while to sink in. Until then, fanboys like me are waiting for the next Avengers movie, where we're going to yell our lungs out when we see him on the screen again! via GIPHY
