AVENGERS ENDGAME – Karl Sides (The Flick fanatics)

AVENGERS ENDGAME

Starring:

Chris Evans          Scarlett Johansson     Robert Downey Jr.

Mark Ruffalo       Chris Hemsworth     Jeremy Renner

Every Journey has an end and Marvel brings our 11-year thrill ride with “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” to an epic and proper conclusion with the film AVENGERS ENDGAME!

Everything has been building toward this moment in time……from the first suit of armor that Tony Stark made when confined to the cave in the desert…. to a war hero frozen in ice…. a GOD from another universe who fell to Earth, a couple of spies with deadly aim and a scientist with some anger management issues that would become the team we call THE AVENGERS!

Last year we saw our defenders fall to the “Mad Titan” Thanos (Josh Brolin) who snapped his fingers and erased half of the galaxy’s population and we lost heroes like Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and the king of Wakanda- Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Endgame opens with fallout around the world with people mysteriously disappearing, society spirals down not being able to cope with the loss.

The Avengers that are left try to move on and locate the missing team members that weren’t in the battle of Wakanda, with Black Widow coordinating the search teams. Steve Rogers leads therapy sessions for people trying to move on from the “event”.

While they put up a strong front, the Avengers also are still trying to figure out where Thanos went and how to get the gauntlet to possibly use it to get their friends back. Dr. Banner explains that they are short-handed this time if they face Thanos, only to be corrected by newcomer Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Capt. Marvel “No this time you have me!”

If you are looking for spoilers and answers to those questions that have been burning in your soul, you won’t find them here! You need to get one of the few available tickets left and GO SEE AVENGERS ENDGAME this weekend!!!

ANT MAN AND THE WASP- Karl Sides (The Flick Fanatics)

Published by:

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Starring:

Paul Rudd- Scott Lang/ Ant Man

Michael Douglas- Dr. Hank Pym

Evangeline Lilly- Hope Van Dyne/ Wasp

Michael Pena- Luis

Hannah John-Kamen- Ava/ Ghost

Ant Man returns, this time with the sting of the Wasp, but more is not always better in the new film “Ant Man and the Wasp”.

It is almost 2 years since the events in “Captain America: Civil War” and Scott Lang aka the Ant Man is under house arrest and on the outs with Dr. Hank Pym and Hope. Pym is furious he went off to Germany to fight with Captain America and implicated all of them by violating the Sokovia accords making Dr. Pym and Hope criminals on the run.

Hope Van Dyne is working with her father to construct a bridge to the Quantum realm in hopes to save his wife that is trapped there. Hope is double crossed by a crooked arms dealer Sonny Burch (Walter Goggins) when she tries to purchase the final piece Dr Pym needs for the tunnel. As she becomes the Wasp and beats Sonny’s henchmen a mysterious figure shows up and tries to steal the component as well. This “ghost” can phase in and out and avoid hopes stings.

 

Scott is a few days from freedom of house arrest when he is grabbed by Hope since he holds the key to the location of Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) in the Quantum realm. Dr. Pym, Hope and Scott hide in the woods to finish the bridge and locate Janet. Scott calls Luis and tells him where he is so that they can finish a bid for their new security company to stay in business. Burch shows up and gets the info from Luis and makes a call to the FBI. Scott races home to beat the FBI there and Hope and Dr. Pym are taken into custody while the Ghost makes off with Pym’s lab and the Quantum tunnel.
