Sexists assemble! Someone has ‘defeminised’ Avengers: Endgame

An anonymous fan has made a new edit of the Marvel hit with fewer women, fewer feelings, less male hugging and less entertainment Like me, you probably hated Avengers: Endgame because it contained too many components that you ideologically oppose. Like women, for instance. And homosexuality. And feelings. And women. God, women, yuck. So it gives me enormous relief to inform you that this is exactly how Donald Trump chooses to watch movies. If he can manage to cut the fat out of Bloodsport a film that is basically one long unbroken grunt then we should be able to do the same to any films stupid enough to contain any female characters that arent simply two-dimensional submissive sexbots. The question …

The new nerds: how Avengers and Game of Thrones made everyone geek out

We, too, have enjoyed its wonders—and, boy, do we have thoughts. For a comic-book movie, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe flick was rich with themes, arcs, and plots. It was also quite stellar. Yet, walking out of the theater, we all had questions, things we needed to work through that may or may not include a deep love for Lebowski Thor and Carol Danvers' Power Lesbian Haircut. We assembled WIRED writers and editors Jason Kehe, Jason Parham, Peter Rubin, and Angela Watercutter to analyze all of the biggest themes of Marvel's franchise-defining movie.

The climax to the Marvel superhero series has broken pre-sale box office records and is on track to shatter many more If any movie is critic-proof, it is Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of 21 previous titles in the wildly popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, which began with 2008s Iron Man. Pre-sale records have already been destroyed by the cinematic colossus, with the film, which is released on Thursday, a fitting, satisfying and surprising final fling. Avengers: Endgame holds a 6% approval rating on Mashable: At both the screenings I attended, the audience reactions were so loud at certain points that entire lines of dialogue were swallowed up. Which is probably just fine with Marvel: all the more reason for fans to …

Superheroes and freaky cats: how Captain Marvel rewrote the rules

From the story behind Nick Furys eyepatch to the rehabilitation of the Skrull, the latest Marvel film has altered comic-book canon in fruitful ways If theres one thing we should have been primed for, prior to viewing Captain Marvel, it would be to expect the unexpected. Marvel is a studio that, time and again, has chosen to twist comic-book canon to suit new needs, rather than deliver overly faithful adaptations of the original work. The addition of the Skrull, a race of alien shape-shifters, to the Marvel universe, Captain Marvels trailers showed Skrull disguising themselves as human while fighting Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) naturally led observers to suspect they were up to their old tricks. To twist that narrative on …

Captain Marvel Is About Female PowerNot Empowerment

If there's one line, one quote, that will endure from Captain Marvel, it'll likely be this one from Carol Danvers herself: "What happens when I'm finally set free?" It's rhetorical. Danvers says this as she's coming to realize the true awesomeness of her powers. For years, she's had her past hidden from her, been gaslighted into believing she needed to rein in her powers to be a better warrior for the Kree. This was not true. She had been fighting "with one hand tied behind my back," and when she realizes who she should really be fighting for, her might is unleashed. She is unstoppable.
