MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; From From Home

Ah, Spider-Man, the little nerd who could, the boy wonder who broke our hearts in Infinity War, and then slung back into our lives through a glowing wizard-hole. In Far From Home (essentially the epilogue of Phase 4) we saw Peter Parker finally come into his own and step out of the oppressive shadow of … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; From From Home

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Endgame

Welcome back to the MCU Photo-Recap Countdown! It’s been a while, eh? If you recall, way back in December of 2018 I started recapping every movie in the MCU, leading up to the culmination of a decade of storytelling in the aptly named Endgame.  It was a RIDE.  Black Widow will hit theatres... eventually, so … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Endgame

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown Bonus Track; Captain Marvel

Since Captain Marvel won’t be released into the wild until June, I thought I’d include a quick recap here, before we get into Infinity War. OKAY SO, we meet our hero ‘Vers’ on a Kree planet, training, quipping, and being generally awesome. She has some super-punch power that the Kree gave her *wink*, but first … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown Bonus Track; Captain Marvel

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Ant-Man and the Wasp

Well here Ant-Man is again, sandwiched between two mega-hit monsters of movies. We met Scott Lang directly after Age of Ultron, and right before Civil War. He was the palate cleanser we needed between big-time team-ups. Then we got Ant Man and the Wasp right after Infinity War (still hurts), and before Captain Marvel, a … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Ant-Man and the Wasp

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Black Panther

Ahhhhhh yes, Black Panther, this tasty number, an undeniable hit at the box office and the first ever MCU film nominated for a Best Picture oscar. Whether you think it deserved the nomination or not, the fact that Black Panther reigned supreme can’t be denied. T’Challa has been a fan favourite since his introduction in … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Black Panther

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Spiderman Homecoming

Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a Marvel movie can! The title of Homecoming had very little to do with a dance, and a LOT to do with our boy coming home to Marvel after so many years with Sony. Here are some fundamental truths about Spider-Man: he wise-cracks, he is a genius, he is not a … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Spiderman Homecoming

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Well if it isn’t the Guardians of the Galaxy, back for another funny, action-packed comedy adventure, shockingly rooted in deep, painful and beautiful emotion. On a scale of 1 to MY HEART EXPLODED, how awesome was it to see the gang again? The sequel was highly anticipated after the success of the original, which, let’s … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Ant Man

Ah, Ant Man, the bratty little brother of the MCU. Sandwiched between heavy hitters Age of Ultron and Civil War, it provided the brief respite we all needed before the real drama began. It’s a silly, fun movie with moderate stakes and sciency-science. Ant Man knows what it is. It knows it’s not anyone’s favourite. … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Ant Man

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; The Dark World

Thor has returned! Again! And this time he’s staying a while! Everyone’s favourite lovable doofus returned to Earth for another adventure with the Science Squad, and although it wasn’t as fun a romp as the first, it was still a good time. In terms of the wider universe, it introduced the third infinity ‘stone’, the … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; The Dark World

MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Thor

Ahhhhhh Thor, the lovable dummy of the MCU. The Marvel movies had had some chuckles, with RDJ cracking wise, and Hulk… um, Bruce made that one joke, didn’t he? But then came Thor, with its physical comedy, and fish-out-of-water humour, with Chris Hemsworth’s surprisingly perfect comic timing, and Kat Denning’s pronunciation of his hammer, Mjölnir. … Continue reading MCU Photo-Recap Countdown; Thor
