Okay, I'll admit it. I've been a little hard on Marvel Studios lately. In my last few editorials that touched on Marvel, I kinda...sorta...may have...gave the impression that I think their movies are "safe, corporate, predictable, softball entertainment with low stakes and crappy villains." And while I definitely do feel that way on a few levels, I think I've been a little too hard on them. Cause there's good in there. A lot of good, in fact.
This new featurette, freshly released by Marvel Studios, shines a spotlight on everything that's not just good but great about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The video, entitled "Action...Avengers!" takes us behind the scenes as the studio enters production on one of the most ambitious films ever made, Avengers: Infinity War. You can check it out right here.
I'll admit it. I teared up a bit at the 2:54 mark, when that flourish of Avengers music hit, just as Kevin Feige spoke about the Avengers meeting the Guardians of The Galaxy. Pretty amazing what they've done, considering I didn't grow up on The Avengers or the Guardians (DC dude, all the way). In the last nine years, they've developed these characters into something truly special; Something you don't realize when you look at individual entries; Something you only realize when it all comes together.
Avengers: Infinity War arrives May 4, 2018.
