Opening: “Avengers: Infinity War” in Theaters Everywhere (4/27/2018)

It’s here, it’s FINALLY HERE!!!! Yes my comic book movie loving friends, “Avengers: Infinity War” opens today in theaters across the country and I am nothing less than shaking with the amount of psyched that I have in my system. As you longer termed readers know, we’ve been supporting this side of the media fence for a number of years now and are so glad to be rallying behind these kinds of films. Let’s take a look at the fantastic theatrical poster, some premise reminder and the massive cast.

The Premise: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain. (thanks Wiki).

Marvel & Disney Unveil “Avengers: Infinity War” Shared Posters

Spring is here (despite it still being cold) and we are just about a month away from the release of “Avengers: Infinity War” and every time there is a reveal of some kind I find myself getting all “geek excited”. About a month ago we shared a whole bunch of Character Art Posters the Entertainment Weekly Magazine showcased “15” different character covers. When the time came for the Final Official Trailer around St. Patrick’s Day I thought that would be it – but I was wrong. Earlier, the studio released “5” more character posters that place a few heroes onto each one. Let’s have a look shall we? I’m starting with the Final Theatrical Poster and the films premise before it continues along.

Marvel Studios Presents: “Avengers: Infinity War” Official Trailer #2

I have to admit that I’ve been on a bit of a Marvel Studios high over the last few weeks after seeing “Black Panther”. It was so good and has made over $1.1 billion dollars at the global box office. Have you seen it yet? If you haven’t you are going to want to because it gives us a nice look at Wakanda which I am sure will play some part in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” film that opens on April 27th. Now all the vibe is going to that film and we’ve just received a second trailer for the film. Let’s start off the Friday properly, and watch…..

By Thanos Decree, The “Avengers: Infinity War” Official Trailer Arrives


It’s pretty amusing to learn that there are at least “20” more MCU films coming according to Kevin Feige who disclosed this information in a very recent interview because not even a day later comes the trailer that we have been long anticipating with “Avengers: Infinity War”. I’ve secured the clip along with premise and the massive casting for you below so get on with the checking it out. Don’t worry, I’ll return with some editorial opinion at the close.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it my readers and without being super negative about the topic, THAT IS HOW YOU DO a massive superhero team film. Sure the recently opened “Justice League” film is calling the audience to attention with the catch phrase of “ALL IN” but I have to say that this trailer shows us what “All In” really looks like. I’m psyched and the summer cannot get here fast enough. In reviewing the trailer, I’d have to add that I don’t think we are going to see too many surprise new heroes introduced because there are more than thirty denoted above and unless this film is three hours long the screen time is going to be tight. Oh let’s admit it, this is probably a film that would work as a super extended one since its obviously loaded to the brim with action. It’s all been leading up to this one and what a ride its been so far. I anticipate this trailer shaking up the heads of state at Warner Brothers who no longer seem to be interested in a shared universe as per numerous disclosures in recent weeks. Time to wake up over there people but I digress. So let’s hear from you folks. What do you think about this trailer and how excited are you for the release in 2018 – Are you “All In”? (Sorry I couldn’t resist).

Opening: “Thor: Ragnarok” in Theaters Everywhere (11/3/2017)

While it is sad to report that no brand-new first issues would be heading our way from Marvel Comics this month, I can say with some authority that the “Marvel Legacy” initiative is hitting the racks in a full steam ahead fashion and a score of titles are bringing you into the action in the comforts of home. This post however is one that is designed at getting you outside and over to the nearest theater with a viewing because “Thor: Ragnarok” opens today. Below you can find the official theatrical poster along with the premise and casting. I’ll return with a brief closing editorial thought.

The Premise:
After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor, held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, must win a gladiatorial duel against an old friend — the Hulk — in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarök, the doom of the Asgardian civilization.

The Cast:
Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Cate Blanchett as Hela
Idris Elba as Heimdall
Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster
Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
Karl Urban as Skurge
Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange
Sam Neill is cast in an undisclosed role
Waititi makes a cameo appearance in the film

PiercingMetal Thoughts: For some reason the Thor films in the MCU have not been as “fun” of a ride as some of the other ones and perhaps its because they were taking themselves a little too seriously for some reason. Marvel has shown that elements of humor often work well to propel the narrative and we’ve seen this in both of the Guardians films and most recently in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. I liked what I saw in the teaser trailer and now its only been compounded with added interest. This does this look like a thrill ride and a whole new bunch of characters to keep that MCU expanding make an appearance, there is nothing wrong with that. This will be the perfect closing up for the year of Marvel movies. You readers can let me know what you think down in the comments below. See you next time and don’t forget to hit your local comic shop for a copy of “Thor” #700 which should still be on the stands if you are lucky. Verily, I’ve repeated the cover art below for good measure.
