fourteen favourite shots: Avengers Endgame

For the FIRST EVER! edition of Fourteen Favourite Shots I decided to do Avengers Endgame.

…which is in many ways a very ugly movie. I’M SORRY! But when I was screencapping it it felt like, so many scenes have this weird grey filter over them? Why?

However since I’m enhancing all the colours I suppose that doesn’t matter much.I still found it much harder than I expected to get a whole 14 shots I really loved though.

But! I do really love how the scenes on Vormir are lit. And that shot of Gamora on the top right is possibly my favourite shot of her ever – this tiny figure facing down the whole world.

I also totally love how there are two shots in here of a man staring at the woman he loves from the wrong side of a timeline.

some good MCU cosplays

Hey remember how I posted a bunch of good Star Wars cosplays for May 4? Well, I’m gonna stick with that idea! Here’s a bunch of equally good MCU cosplays I found on Reddit.

(My gosh, there’s a lot of good Black Widows)

Black Widow Officially Delayed — MCU Cosmic

The news Marvel fans didn’t want to hear has arrived. Black Widow will not be released on May 1st. Variety confirmed the news today. There is no new release date set for the first film in Phase 4. This follows the major theater chains in the United States shutting down over the last 24 hours,…

Some really great MCU fan posters I’ve seen recently

I LOVE this one (THE SPIDER EYES!) Better than any of the official ones in my opinion
Frickin’ love that logo
This is a wonderful concept
I don’t think Marvel Studios will actually ever do World War Hulk but this poster is great
There isn’t an official Eternals poster yet is there? Please use this one
This is WONDERFUL (WANDA-FUL) my gosh I love it

Marvel Cinematic Universe expands back and forth at Super Bowl (videos)

Eeeek! Exciting stuff! I wonder what the brief flicker of Scarlet Witch’s comic book costume is all about.

Sci-Fi Bulletin: Exploring the Universes of SF, Fantasy & Horror!

Trailers for Black Widow and the new Disney+ Marvel shows were highlights of the trailers at this year’s Super Bowl.

At some point we all have to choose, notes Scarlet Johannsen’s Natasha in the Black Widow trailer.

And there’s the first proper glimpse of the Falcon and Bucky in action, a new take on the Scarlet Witch and Vision – and a vengeful Loki in the Disney+ trailer

The Black Widow trailer is here!

I like it all, David Harbour’s character looks great, but oh man, I also kinda feel like this would have more impact if we didn’t know already she was dead and will never truly get a happy ending.

(also, for a while I wondered if the framing device for this movie would be Natasha flashing back to her past as she falls into the Soul Pit, but I guess not.)

The teaser poster has also been released and I like it so much more than that leaked one that went around a few months ago.

No thigh gap on this one! Hooray!

a post-endgame fanfic: A Scar on the World (Gamora and Natasha)

So you probably know that I had a couple of issues with Endgame, especially what happened to Gamora, and this is my attempt to fix them. (Pay attention, James Gunn.)

Title: A Scar on the World
Fandom: MCU/Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters: Gamora, Natasha
Summary: Gamora is trying to come to terms with being alone and displaced in time. Luckily, the universe isn’t done with either her or Natasha Romanoff.
