The 13yo and I went again yesterday. There were no surprises, but we still had a great time, it stands as a good movie even knowing the twists and turns.


Agree re: Cumberbatch, except I thought his stand-alone was boring and is among my least fav marvel movies. But I loved him in this.

Spoiler:
I'm reading (for the first time) 1991's Infinity Gauntlet. The movie appears to be very loosely based on it. But, interestingly, the six-issue story begins with Thanos having the complete Gauntlet, and he snaps his fingers before the end of Issue #1. So I'm curious to see how that story turns out. It would appear to confirm one of the theories in this PRF thread.

re the comics: I dont think they will track much at all. unless they decide to bring more of the cosmic characters into this mix Adam Warlock, Lady Death, Mephisto and Eternity. BTW:
Spoiler:
What happened to Adam Warlock? the owner(?) of the soul gem in the comics- he played a big role in the IG comics and was introduced in the movie universe in GG2. (I thought for sure that he was going to meet/fight Thanos in the soul gem scene but the Red Skull was a cool substitute)
....So...right now, there aren't any real parallel characters to these guys in the movie Marvel universe...but there are still a few plot points from the old comics they can still do and probably will...namely: (comic and potential movie spoilers)
Spoiler:
Thanos eventually losing the gauntlet to Nebula and then having to work with the heros to kill her and destroy the gauntlet I can definitely see this playing out in the next movie...and of course the final iconic scene with Thanos becoming a farmer

Spoiler for Guardians 2 I suppose...
Spoiler:
Adam Warlock was name-checked in the final post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Exactly. That's why...
Spoiler:
...I thought for sure he would factor in the infinity war somehow. But I just googled and James Gunn has said multiple times that AW will not be part of these movies....weird
