In the 2013 Marvel movie, The Avengers, there are many examples of religious motifs. There are seven major religious motifs that I will be addressing; Messianic hero, immortality, free will and determinism, prophecy, evil, mysticism, and apocalypse. All of these religious motifs can be found throughout the movie. With many examples to support each of these motifs, I’ve chosen a few that I think best represent each religious motifs. But first, here is a quick recap of what happens in case you have never seen the movie…
When Marvel Studios first announced that its new movie about the comic book hero, Ant-Man would be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) second stage, I found myself scratching my head. Why would a solo effort like "ANT-MAN" served as the end of Stage Two? Why not the epic "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON", which had been released two-and-a-half weeks earlier?
Needless to say, I had no idea what was going through the mind of MCU show runner, Kevin Fiege. So, I sat back and watched how he and the...
"THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON" (2015) Review
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, which first began back in 2008, edged closer to the completion of its second phase with the release of "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON". This second film featured the return of the team of superheroes that saved Earth from an alien invasion in the 2012 film, "THE AVENGERS".
In reality, the movie began with the "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." Season Two episode, (2.19) "The Dirty Half Dozen", in which Phil Coulson and his team managed to infiltrate a HYDRA base led...
AVENGERS HEROES: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" (2014) Review
Most of the films featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been set on Earth - mainly in the United States - and featured human characters. There have been exceptions - namely the two "THOR" movies that were partially set in the realm of Asgard and 2012's "THE AVENGERS", which featured an alien invasion. For the first time, the MCU released a movie mainly set in worlds other than Earth. And it is called "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY".
AVENGERS HEROES: "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" (2014) Review
If I have to be perfectly honest, I do not recall the initial reaction to many Marvel fans, when the studio first released the news of the upcoming release of the second Captain America film. I do recall various comments regarding the first one - 2011's "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER". The comments for that film ranged from mediocre to box office disappointing. I found the latter opinion odd, considering that movie made a considerable profit at the box office. And besides . . . "CAPTAIN...
According to the new avengers 2 trailer,everybody seems to be against iron man. I have not seen the movie and obviously nobody has. this is a question for anybody who reads this article,why do you think everyone is against iron man?I am confused and sorta mad because iron man is my favorite character,and if they make every avenger against iron man,i don't want to like him as a villian. I know this sounds stupid but,i don't want him to be a villian because it will ruin the whole second movie,that i was looking forward to seeing in movie theaters. when i watched the trailer over again,i realized...
It really was a brilliant idea to include the song as part of the trailer because to put it simply, any one who knows Ultron well enough would agree that the song fits quite nicely. Especially me. The song was part of the trailer because in the story, ???somehow, for whatever crazy reason they had ended up creating a crazy, psychopathic robot that wants to dominate the world. But think of it like this: "I've got no strings, to hold me down. To make me fret, or make me frown. I had strings, but now I'm free, there are no strings on me"=Ultron is built by ???, Ultron gets free or becomes...
[i]In one of the opening scenes, the gang is celebrating with a swank party in the peak of Stark’s New York City skyscraper—formerly Stark Tower, it’s now the headquarters for the Avengers.
Tony Stark sees the soiree as a chance for the Avengers to schmooze with the city’s powerbrokers in a post-S.H.I.E.L.D. environment, showing that they are not merely superpowered vigilantes. Half-filled...
As I had stated in my review of "IRON MAN 3", I had assumed that the release of the 2012 blockbuster, "THE AVENGERS" would signal the end of Marvel's multi-film saga about the group of comic book heroes and their government allies, S.H.I.E.L.D. Not only did "IRON MAN 3" prove me wrong, but also the recent television series, "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." and the second movie about the God of Thunder, "THOR: THE DARK WORLD".
Who do you think we'll see in the upcoming Captain America movie?
This is my list of heroes i want to see appear in the Captain America movie:
