WARNING: Spoiler alert (again)! Joe and Lauren have a lot to process about the Avengers: Infinity War and they couldn’t fit it all in last week’s episode so this is part 2 of their reviews, theories and reactions to Infinity War. So process all the emotions and tears along with them and let us know what were your favorite parts of the movie!
Topics Discussed in this Episode
Infinity War was really an origin story of Thanos
Thanos and Captain America’s opposing ideologies - we don’t trade lives vs one life for millions/kill the few to save many
Frustration with Starlord - he lost everything so he couldn’t let go of Thanos killing Gamora even if it was for the greater good
Joe thought everyone was going to die and Vision would bring people back with the time stone
Lauren knew who was going to die, but still cried through the whole movie
Joe and Lauren discuss their major dislike of spoilers without warnings
Joe’s theory about which characters are actually dead - he thinks it’s everyone who died before Thanos’ snap
Lauren’s theory - maybe the bearers of each stone will be trapped in their stones
Joe’s theory - maybe they’ll start using multi-verse and not bring characters back
Thanos’ altruistic, utilitarian goal to bring balance to the universe
They finally really gave Thor the power of a God and emphasized how he and Loki are Gods by Loki telling Thanos that he’ll never be a God
They discuss how Infinity War is about loss - Thor lost Loki, Thanos lost Gamora, Akoye lost Black Panther, Captain America lost Bucky (lost him twice), Iron Man lost Spiderman (father/son relationship), Scarlet Witch lost Vision, Rocket lost Groot (lost him twice, father/son relationship)
Theory - what if the people who disappeared now never existed?
How are they going to tie in Ant-Man?
Captain Marvel teaser - Lauren wants Rogue to come in and absorb her
Is Loki The Hulk?
Next stage in Marvel movies? Will they go cosmic? Maybe they’ll bring in Fantastic Four, Galactis and/or X-men since the Fox deal went through?
Don’t forget, it’s Stroke Awareness Month!
