I liked Infinity War, but I'm getting kinda bored of the MCU. I think the main reason I'm getting kinda bored with it is because I'm bored with the characters at this point. I know IW sets up the possibility of new heroes taking the helm, but I'm doubtful that Disney's gonna bring in any of the really cool but more obscure characters, like Namor the Submariner, Dane Whitman the Black Knight, Kang, The Skrulls, and others.

 

Also, Marvel trying to get people hyped for Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel yet again is kinda silly. She's been uninteresting since her debut in the late 60's, yet they keep trying to bring her back as some new version which never catches on. I never thought of her as some super awesome and unique character in any way, especially not as some kind of stand-alone savior of the universe. She got her powers from her DNA mixing with the original Captain Marvel (the alien Mar-vell), and only took up the Captain Marvel name as recent as 2012, so she's far from being an established character that many people would be familiar with, at least as the new Captain Marvel.

 

The first thing people I went with asked me at the end of IW was, "What was that icon on the pager?". I told them it was for Captain Marvel, and none of them had any idea who the character was.

I forgot to say, but I saw Deadpool 2 on Saturday of launch weekend.

It was... Good. Way more engaging for me than Infinity War. But it played its cards way too close to the original. I kinda liked that, but then again I kinda didn't. It immediately came across as formulaic, which I wasn't totally put off by, but then it started delivering many of the same jokes from the first film. I liked the new characters, but I was disappointed that there was even less cool Negasonic Teenage Warhead action than in the first movie. I'm the end, I wish the first movie had been given the budget of the sequel, because I liked the original story better, with my only gripe being that it could have used a few more action scenes.

But yeah, good movie. If like to see it again someday, though I don't excitedly anticipate that next opportunity.

Yeah, the original Captain Marvel/Shazam has an interesting story regarding how he started and eventually ended up in DC's hands, and how Marvel took the Captain Marvel name once the copyright expired.

It was kind of a dick move on Stan Lee's part.
