Avengers 4: Endgame Trailer Breakdown

We finally have a taste of the next Avengers movie after the huge cliffhanger Infinity War left us with.  This 2 minute trailer is jam packed with loads of details that might be intimidating at first glance.  I hope to make this trailer more digestible for the everyday person with this breakdown.

Tony Stark Stranded on a Spaceship


Suitless and defeated after his battle on Titan with Thanos, Tony Stark aimlessly drifts through space with no way to get home.  He states how he ran out of food and oxygen, and as a last hope, makes a log for anyone who is able to retrieve it.

Thanos Triumphs


In this shot, we can see that Thanos has hung up his trusty battle armor.  He’s completed his goal of killing half the world, and can now live the rest of his life peacefully.

Familiar Faces Return


Heros like Hawkeye and Ant-Man are back, and I have the feeling they are going to play a big part in Avengers 4.  If you didn’t know where these guys were during Infinity War, Ant-Man was under house for the crimes he committed in Civil War and Hawkeye decided to hang up his bow to live with his family.

My Thoughts on the New Lion King

Out of nowhere, Disney has recently teased the realistic remake of their beloved movie the Lion King.  A lot of people think Disney is just paying tribute to the fans. However, I believe they have run out of original ideas.

Overall, the Lion King is not a good candidate for a remake.  Disney has a lot to lose from their reimagination; one wrong move could spoil the reputation of the classic movie.  Also, some parts of the cartoon original are going to be flat out hard to translate realistically.  Here are some examples:

Scar’s Character- Scar plays an important role in the story.  I just hope they can do his character justice through his look.

Mufasa’s Death- Since the original movie was cartoon, Disney was able to censor the potentially brutal scene for the younger audience.  What are they going to do now that it’s realistic?  Surely they won’t show a trampled Mufasa.

Cloud Mufasa’s Advice for Simba- This scene is really going to put on full display Disney’s commitment to this movie.  This scene is very taxing visually and is going to be a challenge for even modern CGI.Image result for mufasa speaks to simba
