SO I SAW THIS NEW MOVIE. IT'S CALLED AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. ANYONE HERE HEARD OF IT? :P



Honestly better than the original. Probably the best Marvel movie to combine action and fun. I still prefer Guardians personally though, but just barely (and probably because of the soundtrack). Joss Whedon deserves all the props for pulling off this impossible task TWICE. I will spoil nothing because I know you're going to see it.
Bioshock is considered a masterpiece. Let me attempt to showcase why : viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13252

It aired last April 22 here which I think is early compared to the US. [spoiler]The Hulk x Black Widow thing was distracting, but it was a fun film. Wasn't surprised about Quicksilver dying instead of Hawkeye but the latter raised too many death flags and almost fell for it. We were practically screaming in the theatre, "Hawkeye, don't die!"[/spoiler]


Also, Daredevil rocks.

[spoiler]Seriously, I was hoping Hawkeye wouldn't die, but killing off Quicksilver surprised me too. I figured he'd be around for at least one more movie so we would have time to really start to like him first. Overall, I think the movie was great, though I was hoping Bucky would show up. I'm glad Maria has a larger part than she used to, as I find her quite entertaining.

I wasn't distracted by Hulk x Black Widow, but I was sort of expecting it.

Ultron himself was surprisingly funny. I don't usually expect that out of the villain, particularly when said villain is AI. I was sad when it looked like he killed Jarvis, though.

The best parts, in my opinion, were the scenes involving Mjolnir - first when no one else could lift it (except Cap almost did and Thor panicked for a moment), then when Vision picked it up like it was nothing and they all just stared at him for a bit.[/spoiler]

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same.

[spoiler]Given that they set up Ulysses for Black Panther, was it a good idea to make him look so nonthreatening?[/spoiler]

Some thoughts

[spoiler]In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the T.A.H.I.T.I. program that Fury used to bring Coulson back to life was supposed to be for a 'fallen Avenger'. While the secret base was destroyed, we're not really sure it was the only facility. In Age of Ultron, Quicksilver dies. I think it was mentioned somewhere that the Maximoff twins are related to Inhumans (although I forgot if they gained their powers through experimentation or if they had Inhuman blood to begin with). A major component of the serum from the T.A.H.I.T.I. program, as far as I've already watched, was an alien who visited Earth many years ago. (The blue alien could be Kree; just don't wanna spoil myself and check the internet to confirm.) While the serum had unfortunate side-effects when used on human subjects it could work very well with special people e.g. Skye who are possibly connected with the alien race somehow (if the alien was Kree, the connection would be that in the comics they were responsible for the evolution of the Inhuman species). Thus it's not impossible for Quicksilver to be revived.

Ofc I doubt they're gonna use this tidbit since the death of Quicksilver serves as motivation for Wanda and not everyone watches Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Edit: Hmmm it seems the twins aren't related to Inhumans. If Secret Wars is any indication...[/spoiler]
