I am still not very mentally well but I did manage to see GOTG 3, a film I’ve waited so long for. It’s very, very good. (Spoilers from here on!) I admit I did really want Gamora’s Infinity War death to be “undone” in some way, I’m still bitter about that even after all this time, but at least she’s alive and has a family of her own and is on good terms with the Guardians now.
I REALLY REALLY LOVED that Gamora told Nebula “There are little girls like you all over the galaxy, we can help them” back in Vol 2 and this movie ended with both of them helping little girls escape a monstrous god-like being. OH my heart.
I have no idea what Adam Warlock is like in the comics, I gather nothing like how he is in this movie, but he was hilarious and I wish he was in the movie more. I have a newfound appreciation for Will Poulter’s comedy skills.
I loved Peter Quill in this movie, I have loved him in every GOTG movie despite him being played by Chris Pratt, and I’m very glad that he’s going to stick around in the MCU for a little bit. I really want him to be bisexual now like he is in the comics. Genuine suggestion: since there was that big and touching scene at the end of Adam Warlock saving his life, why not pair him up with Adam?
ALSO: Shout out to the taxi driver who drove us to the cinema who was a fellow theme park history enthusiast! That was super nice, I hadn’t had a fun conversation with a stranger for a while really.
The finale of What If was today, and though I’ve had some pretty big quibbles with this show I liked it overall. But I was so confused when Gamora showed up! Pleased but confused, because despite her being on the posters we’d seen absolutely nothing regarding her so far?
I decided to screencap Wreck-It Ralph 2 and I realised one of the little avatars walking around is Gamora!
There she is in the middle! And that’s Darth Maul poking his head out at the bottom and Iron Man is in the crowd too.
Though that does rather raise the question, since the little square people are meant to be “real” internet users in the movie, why are all these characters who are also presumably fictional in Ralph’s world walking around using the internet? Unless in the terms of this movie all Disney IPs are in fact real characters/people who just happen to live on the Internet? (See: the princesses.) But in that case why are Gamora, Maul etc square avatar thingys instead of looking how they do in their respective movies?
In Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Thanos intentionally puts the gauntlet where Gamora can see it when he’s torturing Nebula so that she knows he isn’t using the Reality Stone and that her pain is real.
