i haven't posted in *coughs* nearly five months.
aaaaaand i have no excuse. also i won't be back for awhile.
but, i saw that the lovely Christine Smith created a MCU tag and of course, being the super geek that i am, i just couldn't resist. so i'm here just to do this tag & then i'll disappear for another undisclosed amount of time, xD.
guys. Avengers: Endgame comes out this Friday.
IM SCREAMING RIGHT NOW. i'm so not prepared and ready for this movie, but it's coming.
we're seeing it friday at 4pm. it's on my calendar in blood. xD the day the tickets came out, my friend and i were in math class and we kept checking the movie theater website and it took thirty minutes to load. as soon as math ended, we sprinted to the parking lot and nearly sped all the way to the theater to buy our tickets. then we were so excited and nervous that we kept dropping our purses and wallets. the ticket booth guys were laughing at us. xD
okay. psa is over. on to the tag.

HOW WERE YOU INTRODUCED INTO THE MCU FANDOM?
i assume you mean MCU films and not Marvel? well, i saw my very first Marvel film when i was 13 or 14, and it was The Avengers. it completely blew me away, as i grew up reading Silver and Golden Age comics and absolutely loved the superheroes. my very first Marvel film in the theaters was Avengers: Age of Ultron, and from then on, i've seen almost every Marvel film in the theater. i'm a total sucker for Marvel films, xD.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MARVEL FILM?
no question about it.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
yup. it's my absolute favorite Marvel film & i've seen it about *squints* five times? and each time, it gets better.
i also really like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Thor: Ragnorak.
TOP FAVORITE MARVEL CHARACTER?
again, no question about it.
Bucky Barnes. The Winter Soldier. White Wolf. James Buchanan Barnes.
yup. he's my ultimate favorite character. one of my favorite shirts is this one that one of my best friends got me as a graduation present. it's black and says BUCKY BARNES PROTECTION SQUAD on it and i love it. ;)
second favorite is, without question, Captain America. Steve Rogers. <3
i also love Spider-Man. anddd..... *stops before i list all the MCU characters*
IF YOU WERE TRANSPORTED INTO THE MCU AND HAD TO TRADE PLACES WITH ONE OF THE SUPERHEROES, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
that's a hard question.
probably Steve? then i could be best friends with Bucky. xD
or Black Widow. she's really cool and then i could have Hawkeye as my best friend and spy partner.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE FILMS?
oh, i have a lot. xD
my ultimate favorite: i'm with you til the end of the line, pal.
i have nothing to prove to you.
^^ k, when that part in Captain Marvel happened, the entire theater just went oooohhhh. hands-down, one of the best parts in that entire, gorgeous movie.
i recognize that the council has made a decision, but given that it's a stupid--- decision, i've elected to ignore it.
kick names. take ---.
also just realized that two of my favorite quotes have a curse word in it. xD
funny story: every time we take a test, one of my best friends and i look at each, and with deadpan faces, say "kick names. take butt.". and then we crack up laughing. xD
WHICH CREW WOULD YOU WANT TO BE PART OF THE MOST:
AVENGERS, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, OR REVENGERS?
ooh, tough question. i'll be an Avenger. bc then i can fight alongside Steve, Natasha, Clint, Scott, Wanda, etc. it'll be awesome. then we can go get shwarma after we defeat the purple slimeball, Thanos.
FAVORITE AND LEAST FAVORITE SHIP?
okay, my favorite noncanon ship is definitely, without a doubt, Black Widow & Hawkeye. i've always shipped them together, and while the subplot in Age of Ultron was cute, it was so unexpected and abrupt. still bitter that they're not together ;).
my favorite canon ship is definitely Steve and Peggy & Tony and Pepper. there better be a Tony & Pepper scene in Endgame *squints suspiciously at the Russo brothers*.
my least favorite ship.....is, without a doubt, Natasha and Bruce. #sorry #notreally. the romance was so abrupt and unexpected and just nooppppeee.
also Steve and Sharon. firstly, the romance between them was so forced and abrupt (especially that kiss *gags*) and it's incredibly awkward since Sharon is Peggy's niece.
FAVORITE AND LEAST FAVORITE VILLAIN?
ooh, Loki is probably my favorite villain. also i really liked Hela from Thor: Ragnorak and i'm super excited to see Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
least favorite villain....is definitely Killmonger from Black Panther. i just really didn't like how they made Killmonger's character. he's a villain, people. yes, he had a rough childhood. but that's no excuse to enjoy killing people? he scarred himself for every life he took, and personally, that's super messed up and disturbing. idk. just really did not like him.
UNPOPULAR MCU OPINION?
oh, here we go. xD
okay, so i didn't love Black Panther.
*waits for tirade of angry comments*
clarification: i didn't hate it, but i didn't love it. don't get me wrong, i absolutely love T'Challa and Shuri and Okoye, and Wakanda, and all that. but i didn't like the villain (Killmonger), some underlying political messages, and some lines in the film.
just sayin', the second post credits scene was the best part of the whole movie. #notsorry
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE STAN LEE CAMEO?
so, the Russo brothers just released a statement saying that Endgame is the last MCU film to have a Stan Lee cameo. *sobs*
anyway, my favorite cameo is definitely, without a doubt, the cameo in Age of Ultron. when Stan Lee drinks some of Thor's aged beer from Asgard and is carried out saying, "Exelsior!" <3 <3 that's how Stan Lee would always sign off on comics and stuff. a nice little nod to the Marvel comics. :)

so yea. just popping in to do this tag, bc i may or may not have screamed when i saw Christine's post. and i just HAD to do it. bc i'm a giant, proud Marvel geek. who has way too many Captain America t-shirts. also, for the record, i'm #TeamCap all the way. til the end of the line *sobs*. IM NOT READY FOR ENDGAME.
anyway. *coughs* sorry about this huge hiatus, and yes, i will be gone for another undisclosed amount of time. just a lot of stuff to work thru. school & other fun stuff.
