I love this trailer, but I hate the title, which is Marvel’s own damn fault — don’t keep the name of the movie a secret and overhype it if you’re just going to go with what everyone’s first guess was, you ninnies.
In fact, here’s a few titles I would have liked them to go with instead:
Avengers: Captain Marvel’s Gonna Be Pissed
Avengers: Good of You to Finally Show Up, Hawkeye Ronin
Avengers: Probably the Last One Before the X-Men Start Ruining Things, Ugh
Before we all rush to the theater to finally see Avengers: Infinity War tonight, please feel free to listen to this week’s brief episode of Nearly Coherent to find out what I think is going to happen, which might not, but it’d be kinda great if it did tbh
Ask Feige what makes his particular kind of world-building possible and he says, simply, “have a plan.” It doesn’t have to be set in stone, he adds. His current estimate is that Marvel movies have been three-quarters plan and 25 percent bob-and-weave.
As important as having a plan is, I would argue that having someone to help form and execute that plan – someone who is a fan of the source material and the characters – is even more important. This’ll be fairly self-evident in a few years, when we can compare Marvel’s efforts, lead by Feige, and DC’s attempt to replicate that success, lead by the guy who made “Sucker Punch”.
