Guardians of the Galaxy Song in Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may have been just dethroned from the top of the box office by Deadpool 2, but fans are still talking about the Marvel Studios sequel. That includes sending questions to director James Gunn, since he was consulted about how the Guardians of the Galaxy were utilized throughout the movie. One question has been thrown his way a number of times, and he wanted to make sure everyone got the answer.

When the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, they’re flying across space to answer a distress call. While the rest of the movie only uses Alan Silvestri’s score, this particular sequence starts off with the crew listening to “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners from the Zune that Star-Lord was given at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But there were a few other options that could have been used for this sequence.  Read More »

Marvel Comic Plots That Could Inform the Avengers 4 Story

Avengers: Infinity War is driving a lot of speculation right now about what next year’s follow-up Avengers movie and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could look like. Part of that speculation draws from what we know — or think we know — based on movie news, but fans are also looking to comics history for possible indicators of where the story might go. If you read our feature about the iconic Marvel Comics moments that Infinity War brings to life, then you know that the movie is full of visual callbacks to the comics. More often than not, these moments have been re-contextualized from the comics, as if the filmmakers were using the same basic ingredients to make a different recipe.

Even before it stopped answering to the Marvel Creative Committee, Marvel Studios was never bound by a need to slavishly adapt specific stories. What it did do that set it apart from the studios behind the early batch of inferior comic book movies in the 2000s was demonstrate a genuine affinity and respect for the source material. This could be felt in things like the faithful costume design it afforded most of its heroes and some (but not all) of its villains. No longer was their colorful comic book look — the bright visual aesthetic that X-Men once dismissed with a cheeky one-liner about “yellow spandex” — regarded as silly and in need of black-leather revision.

Knowing the studio’s penchant for pulling from old back issues, let’s dig into the Marvel Comics library and take a look at some elements that might make it into Avengers 4 and Phase 4 of the MCU.

Potential spoilers for future Marvel movies and definite spoilers for Infinity War lie ahead.

Age of Ultron credits scene

In the Avengers: Age of Ultron credits scene, an increasingly-impatient Thanos (Josh Brolin) opens a vault, reaches in, grabs a stone-less gauntlet, and says, “Fine. I’ll do it myself.” But in an interview with Avengers: Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, they intimated that they weren’t going to deal with the ramifications of that scene.

“Not our movie,” McFeely said, referring to Age of Ultron. Markus then chimed in: “And we’ve all sat there and went, “What the hell is he talking about? Where was he when he did that?'”

Now Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have commented about how the Age of Ultron credits scene aligns with the events of Infinity War. And just like with real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.

infinity war soul stone

These days, a fan theory can’t even get a few weeks in the cycle without being debunked immediately by the directors who may have started it in the first place. Or rather, “clarified.” Joe and Anthony Russo are clarifying their comments on the final scene in their film Avengers: Infinity War, and in the process, may have just debunked the popular Infinity War Soul Stone theory and the stone’s role in Avengers 4. Oh well, at least we got to dream.

Guardians of the Galaxy in Infinity War

If you’re as outspoken an advocate of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as I am, Avengers: Infinity War probably left you with loads to internally process. Yes, we’re going to grade the Guardians of the Galaxy in Infinity War.

James Gunn’s lovable cosmic cowboys play a pivotal role in challenging Thanos’ scheme to collect all six Infinity Stones. Star-Lord, Drax and Mantis end up alongside Tony Stark’s space clan, Rocket and Groot aid Thor’s Stormbreaker quest, Gamora reunites with her father Thanos – the Guardians have plenty going on, but not every arc struck me as complete. We knew there’d be some character development issues with such a cluttered team-up feature, but the range of representation for my favorite MCU heroes endure scales from “Is Groot as mighty as Thor?” to “Gamora hitting rock-bottom.”

Oh, should I mention spoilers will follow? I mean, why would you click on an Infinity War article without seeing the movie anyway. In any case, here goes:
