“Can I get a reaction from you?” “Panic. I would say panic is my reaction.”
Avengers: Infinity War is nearly here. And it’s about damn time I did some re-watches on the seemingly ever-present Marvel movies. To look back on the path we’ve followed, from the origins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe all the way to where we are here in 2018. Continue reading →
Taika Waititi sure knows how to show you a HELA good time.
