Favourite MCU film: Avengers: Infinity War
Nitpicks aside, Infinity War is pretty damn perfect in what it sets out to achieve. The Russos manage to make Thanos and his quest for balance so compelling, and they did a perfect job translating the Mad Titan to screen. At the end of the day, Infinity War adopts a crushing feeling of hopelessness by positing the question: could the Avengers lose? Indeed they can, and it is somehow harrowing and satifsfying at the same time.
Favourite MCU Character: Spider-Man
Spidey’s always had a special place in my heart, and the Tom Holland interpretation absolutely nails what I love about the character. Witty, awkward and vulnerable, there’s never been a more faithful Spider-Man than the one we have in the MCU.
Why I joined The Direct...
Through The Direct, I will endeavour to produce content that unearths the countless possibilities of the MCU, as well as celebrates the stellar lineup of films that we’ve already gotten. Ultimately, through this opportunity, I hope to engage further with film speculation and criticism and explore these aspects in other mediums beyond writing, such as videos and podcasts!
- It's great to see Rian giving some heartwarming and respectful comments for other entries in the Star Wars universe. He's definitely got a profound connection with Star Wars as a fan, and I can't wait to see what he's got in store with his own trilogy. In the words of Elijah Wood: "Long live Rian Johnson!"
- Spider-Woman's more espionage roots could allow the MCU to return to a more political-thriller type of adventure, which excites me a lot as we haven't seen that since Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Anything Spider-Man related, even if she isn't necessarily that Spider-Man related, has me pumped!
