The MCU Ranked, and Slightly Updated

Dave messaged me last week wanting to know if I’d be ready for an Endgame podcast by Sunday. I won’t. Given the hype, anticipation, and number of people that I know who’ve already bought tickets I can only imagine how crowded every single showing will be for opening weekend. My love of The Avengers will not win out over my hatred of seeing movies in a sold out theater. Anything over half full gives me anxiety these days. I’ll see it sometime next week when I’m off early on a weekday, and can get in while most everyone else is still at work. During these messages Dave also mentioned that he was doing an MCU ranker for the site this week, and asked me to do one too. As luck would have it I did the one below last year for the old site. Obviously he hasn’t memorized every single article I’ve ever written. What a jerk. And then he ended up not even doing the ranker he set out to do. Anyway, besides cleaning up the formatting I left everything pretty much as it was when I first wrote it. I could go back and start over-thinking things, but why? I did add Ant-Man and the Wasp, but you’ll notice that Captain Marvel isn’t here. The lame answer is that I just haven’t gotten around to seeing it yet. My life has been busy and complicated so far this year, and I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I also don’t understand having two Marvel movies in theaters at the same time. I’d have been a lot happier to see this one at home a few times before going to see Endgame. So I’ll probably see Endgame twice before I see Captain Marvel, but I will see it.

TV Review – 15 Thoughts About Daredevil Season 3

SPOILER WARNING – THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE THIRD SEASON OF THE NETFLIX SERIES DAREDEVIL

Netflix’s Marvel’s Daredevil (or whatever the nomenclature is) has been one of the streaming service’s most consistent programs thanks to an excellent cast and mostly good plotting.

I loved the first season, liked the second quite a bit, and mostly loathed Defenders.

But the end of Defenders left one of our heroes, Matt Murdock – aka Daredevil, the man without fear – fresh for new stories and personal growth. I was excited for the third season, and even more so knowing that the focus would be back on Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk as the primary antagonist.

Did they pull off an excellent season of television or was this another hot start/middle slog/big finish? Read on. Continue reading “TV Review – 15 Thoughts About Daredevil Season 3”
