The tears in Tony’s eyes in that first gif. The thick swallow and the small gasp of air. He’s trying not to cry while he asks Steve “is um.” Which is totally leading into him asking if Pepper is alive or if she’s been dusted. The pain of the idea that even though he lived he may have lost her must have been so powerful
In the second gif he takes a moment to really realize she’s there, she’s alive. He may have lost but he still has her. The very slight relaxation of his shoulders, to me, shows that just seeing her takes away or at least aliviates most of the anger and pain he has over losing.
In the third. Pepper realizes that the world’s gone to shit, the avengers lost. Everyone lost. But at least there’s a small glimmer of hope, there’s something that’s okay now. They have each other still. Pepper’s “oh my god!” Is enough to to show she had so much hope he was alive but she was also terrified he had died and she didn’t want to get her hopes up just in case. But he’s here, he’s alive. He made it home to her and while he looks terrible and clearly needs plenty of care it’s all things that can be fixed now. He gave her that one more surprise and it’s probably the best one he’s ever given her
Tony found his corpse, while surrounded by a team who should have allowed him space for his grief, and instead treated him with hostility and anger. There was no time for his grief because there was a world to save, and the most animated we see Tony in Age of Ultron is when he realizes JARVIS is not quite as dead as he initally thought.
And then Vision happens and that’s–not Jarvis.
One of the first things Vision says is that he’s not Jarvis.
Tony lost his first child–DUM-E, U, Butterfingers–they’re his, but they’re not JARVIS. And he was left alone in a ruined tower with that child’s remains.
And then, a lifetime and a galaxy away–Tony lost Peter.
His second child.
A child he chose instead of created.
And in those last moments on Titan, we see that grief, that crushed despair in Tony’s eyes, something we saw hints of in Age of Ultron when he realized JARVIS had been killed.
Peter’s death was hard–a parent losing a child.
But what is tragic to me, is that it wasn’t the first time Tony had felt that loss, and it was, once again, a loss brushed aside as soon as he voiced it, never really acknowledged by the people who should have held him and helped him through his grief.
Tony Stark, the man who faced death in a cave and built an arc reactor and the Iron-man suit, the man who refused to accept the inevitable–lost two children and spent years grieving them in silence. Is it any fucking wonder, when given half an idea, he figured out how the hell to fix it, how to get Peter back?
And the other actors who possibly could be nominated such as, Taron edgerton, Adam driver, Christian bale, Brad pitt, and etc. sorry folks, this year the competition is very fierce. Oscar only give a good performance not the most actor who played in Short term hype movie.
Exhausted and grief-stricken, Peter makes his way home to May after the final battle, and reunites a family along the way.
This story was strongly inspired by the train scene from Spider-Man 2, and my wondering what reaction an unmasked MCU Peter would get from his fellow New Yorkers.
Word count: 5436
After (Mr. Stark died)
the final battle to defeat Thanos (oh
God, Tony was dead, he’d watched him die, saw the life leave his eyes, heard
his heart falter then stop, and it was like losing Ben all over again),
Peter had been shepherded to the only part of the Avengers Compound that had
been left standing. He let the guiding hand on his shoulder push him down on to
a crate, barely registering the fact that Captain America had been the one
steering him, a strong arm wrapped around Peter’s back. The Peter of six months
ago (not six months, five years, but he
couldn’t think about that right now) would have stuttered and stammered
with fanboy enthusiasm, but he was emotionally numb as the other man took a
seat next to him on his own crate.
If Bucky Barnes can move on and let go of 70 years of pain, manipulation, control, bondage, and torture, surely Steve could have done the same about a woman he didn’t even know that long and who got over him within a year after his presumed death.
Are we sure the right super soldier was worthy of holding Mjölnir?
Another rumour was that they wanted to cast him as Nova, specifically Sam
Alexander, a teen whose father was a special agent or something in Nova Corps
(which weve seen in Guardians of the galaxy) and inherits his armour &
I dont know much about
the character & whilst Im sure Finn would do a great job ive thought of
something far better id like to see him take a stab at if he joined the MCU.
So ever since Antman
& even Iron man 3 ive seen the possibility that they may do a young
Avengers movie, though now it could also be a Disney+ drama. With the Events of
endgame having Cassie Lang be the right age, the announcement of Kate Bishop
being in the Hawkeye show as well as the fact Marvel now has the rights to Kree
& Skrulls it looks like this may be happening more & more. So who would
Finn play? Well the character becomes a much later addition to the group when
only 3 of the original members are still part of the team, though given the
fact Black widow & hawkeye were not part of the 1st avengers
team in the comics it doesn’t matter if they change the line up of the team a
bit. But given the fact this character now has his own Disney+ series the
possibilities of it happening are less and less likely. However if Young Avengers does happen it wont be till
way down the line since most of phase 4 has already been planned out, and if shit
that’s been happening with Sony & Spiderman has taught us anything is that
things can change at the drop of a hat. So heres who I think would be a good
character for Finn if he does join the MCU in young avengers:
From what I understand
of the Comics Loki sacrificed himself in order to prevent something he had put
in motion but lost control of from destroying everything, apologising to his
brother as his final words. Because of something to do with Hela rather than truly
die he was reincarnated on earth as a kid with no memories of his past and found
by Thor who told him who he really was, though the boy was terrified of the
nightmares which showed the horrible things he had done. The Asgardians didn’t want
him back in Asgard, especially Odin who constantly yelled at him and belittled
him for the actions of his past self. After helping Thor defend Asgard (at one
point he even uses the Destroyer (from the first Thor movie) to save the day) he
eventually makes contact with his past self who reveals that this has all been
part of his plan and it is time for him to assume control. Refusing to let that
happen Kid Loki traps Loki and hides it from Thor..
Eventually after a lot
of character development Kid Loki has to let his past self take back control in
order to save everyone, though not before letting him have 3 conversations with
anyone he chooses without revealing whats about to happen, basically giving him
the chance to say goodbye before he disappears and old Loki takes over. Its after
this point, whilst still disguising himself as Kid Loki that he joins the young
Now heres how I think
Kid, or rather Teen Loki would fit into the MCU and why Finn would be good to
play him (warning this will be long winded so skip this if your not interested):
The Loki Show: its
been made clear that the show will be focusing on the Loki from the timeline
where he escaped with the tesseract (space stone) in Endgame. Its also clear
that the Multiverse will play a big part in the Doctor Strange sequel and that Scarlet
Witch will play a big part in that movie. So im wondering if the events of WandaVision
(which airs before DS & Loki) will be similar to House of M in that her
powers have grown and in her grief over what happened to vision along with all
the shit that has happened to her in her life she is losing her sanity and unintentionally
altering reality in which Vision lived and the two are a happy couple, complete
with kids (which plays a HUGE part in 2 of the young avengers & their
powers). The series would end with Doctor Strange confronting her and lead into
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness where the 2 must put reality back
together after realities start bleeding into each other.
In the chaos of all the
multiverses bleeding into each other the Loki from the reality where he escaped
with the space stone ends up in the main MCU reality which will lead into the
Loki series. Either during that or Thor Love & Thunder he will sacrifice
himself only to be discovered reincarnated by Thor as Teen Loki (played by Finn)
with seemingly no memory of his past self in the end credits.
Due to his past he’ll
be shunned by other Asgardians and get involved with whatever leads up to the
young avengers being formed. Given how stopping Loki was the reason the
Avengers first teamed up wouldn’t it be a cool call back if Teen Loki was the
one who brought the Young Avengers together to save the world this time?
But as the series
progresses Old Loki starts to whisper to Teen Loki (Hiddleston cameoing either
in person or voice), eventually revealing that nearly everything that has happened in the series, including the team being formed, has been set up by him pre mind wipe so that he gains the trust
of both the young & old avengers, going to such lengths as completely
wiping his memories so that any mind readers will believe he really is a
different person before putting his plans into action. Remember THIS Loki is
still the villainous Loki we had in the first avengers movie. Any character
development after that is retconned by whatever we get in Thor 4 & the Loki
Series, so Old Loki could still be all out evil.
By series end he is
the final villain and enacts his master plan that the team must stop. Either
they or whatever is left of Teen Loki will be the ones to foil the plan. Hopefully
the door for Teen Loki to make a comeback would be open ended (Finn’s a
workaholic after all).
Now as for why I
think Finn would be good as Loki:
First and foremost,
hes a great actor. We’ve seen he is great at giving emotional performances and has
great comedic timing. The taunting creepy childlike laugh he gives Billy in
stranger things sauna scene would be super creepy if Loki eventually went evil
& used his knowledge of his team & his magic/illusions to taunt them.
Id actually like to see Finn play a full-on villain, and I think he could pull
off Loki at his smarmiest overconfident to his full on deranged gleefully
smiling maniac. As for the emotional scenes just tell me he wouldn’t be good at
giving the three secret goodbye speeches before Old Loki takes over again.
Like I said this is
all my own opinion on who he would be good to play in the MCU. Finn has
reportedly stated he would be fine playing a background character rather than
an actual full on character in a superhero movie so he may not even be
interested if the chance came up.
But what do you guys
think? Could you see Finn as this character?
so, i watched endgame again. this is only the second time i’ve seen the film because i had no interest to validate a greedy corporation that destroyed the characters ive grown up loving.
in all of my anger and frustrations since the film was released, i forgot how good the stevetony time heist scenes were, how in sync they both were just like they’ve always been in the comics and the fact that steve had absolute trust in tony, also like in the comics, when he proposed they go back to the 70s to get the tesseract and more pym particles. in the previous films, we’ve seen steve counter tony at every step, but, this time, he was 100% on board with whatever tony had to say.
howard potts and captain stevens made me smile and i honestly wasn’t expecting it when i decided to watch this film. it’s still not an easy film to stomach because a part of me is still angry at what they did to steve but the brief glimpses of stevetony acting more like their comics counterparts made it worth it.
