Your Voices is a simple concept created to encourage conversation and opinions between movie lovers. It works like this: I throw out a certain topic. After that I’ll make my case or share my opinions. Then it’s time for Your Voices. Head to the comments section and let me and your fellow moviegoers know your thoughts on the topic for that day!
This next paragraph features some rather BIG “Avengers: Endgame” spoilers. Be warned…here we go. “Endgame” featured some events that will dramatically reshape the MCU landscape. Namely the death of Tony Stark, the passing of the shield by Steve Rogers, most likely the end of Banner/Hulk storyline. All three actors have intimated their desires to leave their roles and “Endgame” gave them that big satisfying finish (except for Hulk but that’s a gripe for another time).
A while back I shared some initial thoughts about the MCU’s new direction (you can read them HERE). But from your point-of-view, with such major heavy hitters and pivotal Marvel superheroes no longer leading the way, where does that leave your excitement going forward? Are you as excited for an MCU without these iconic characters? To be honest, I can’t say I am.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still interested in the MCU and love many of its remaining heroes. I’m still going to be there watching the films when they hit theaters. But I have to admit, Marvel has some work to do. Robert Downey, Jr. brought so much, not only to his character, but to the MCU as a whole. Captain America always has been and always will be my favorite Avenger. Those two along with Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor (at least he’s still around) made up an incredible core that won’t be easy to replace.
But now it’s time for Your Voices. Please hit the comments section to share your thoughts.
