There are a few film franchises that stand the test of time such as Star Wars and James Bond. Yet with those franchises, they’ve both had some clunkers (the Star Wars prequels and Die Another Day come to mind). Yet the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to churn put quality movies that are consistently good. While Black Panther became the third highest movie of all time after being released in February, Marvel does it again with Avengers Infinity War. Infinity War culminates the first 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s so well thought of since scenes in the previous film foreshadowed the battle with Thanos for the infinity stones.
I’m not going to divulge any details of the movie, except that it’s a little long at 150 minutes. Then again, that’s what happens when you have so many characters in it. There were so many characters involved that there was no room for Hawkeye or Ant-Man. The movie is wall-to-wall excitement, energy, and humor. It leaves off a great cliffhanger, which will be paid off with the next Avengers movies coming next May. There is even a possible reference to next year’s Captain Marvel.
Now if only DC would make movies like Marvel.
