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…
The Avengers is about a group of superheroes and humans that come together to save the world from an evil being. Loki, the evil being, also Thor’s brother, comes from Asgard, and tries to take over earth so that he can use the people for his own ulterior motive. He uses the power of the tesseract (a cube with a magnitude of power and energy) to take over the minds of people and make them do his what he wants.

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 filmmakers for "ANT-MAN" would handle this. And I must say . . . I found myself more than pleasantly surprised. This surprise, along with the actual movie also taught me another lesson about making assumptions. One day, this lesson will remain with me and I will stop making assumptions for good. Hopefully.

As for "ANT-MAN", the movie created a small controversy when the Marvel and Disney Studio bosses decided to fire British filmmaker Edgar Wright and replace him with Peyton Reed as director. They also dismissed the screenplay that Wright co-wrote with collaborator Joe Cornish...

"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 by one Doctor List and discover the location of the secret base of the evil organization in the fictional country of Sokovia. "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON" opened with the Avengers in Slovakia, attacking the HYDRA base. Despite Clint Barton aka Hawkeye's injury and the team's encounter with HYDRA's new superhumans, Sokovia natives Pietro and Wanda Maximoff aka Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch; the Avengers prevail by arresting HYDRA leader Baron Wolfgang von Strucker and obtaining the Chitauri Scepter used by Loki in the 2012 movie. However, Tony Stark aka Iron Man has an encounter with the...
