My general point was that Infinity War was part 1 of 2. The bad guys win in the middle of a (good) story to set up the final act. There was no surprise to me that Thanos came out of IW on top, that...

But Han is captured, the Empire has wiped out the Rebel base on Hoth, and things are pretty grim. Maybe its not a complete win but the Empire is in a better position than the Rebellion.


Well yes,...

Couldn't you say this about Empire Strikes Back. Even Two Towers arguably? The bad guy generally wins in the middle of the story, that's what sets up the final act. Infinity War is just Part 1 of...

You're right, I should have said it was awful. ;)

Yes and Ms. Marvel is set in the 90's (thus the use of a pager in the bonus scene). As the only two MCU movies between now and Avengers 4 we won't see any fallout until then.*

I'm with Pale Horse, good, not great. Probably better if you're a die-hard Marvel comic nut (I'm not) but for me it doesn't live up to the best of the MCU. My top 5 of the MCU are still (in some...

The Russos may but I don't believe when push comes to shove that they'll have the final say. They may walk away but Disney will find somebody else to carry the torch until its far past played out.
