“There was an idea…”
And both in front and behind the camera, there truly was. An idea that, back in 2008 seemed almost too ambitious, almost impossible.
But yet…through simple hard work and determination, and having the right people (Directors, cast, crew, etc.) in the right place at the right time…and with each film building on what came before, culminating in this film…the impossible was achieved.
And reactions from fans said it all.
So what were your feelings when you first saw these two trailers for Infinity War? Comment below and tell us what you think.
Hard to believe it’s been one year since a certain film came out and snapped away all expectations and became much more than a film. Like it’s predecessor Infinity War Endgame became an event. And one to tie up a saga for the ages and clear the way for a new saga to begin!
Now here’s a question for all you Arcaders out there: What moments stood out for you when you saw the film for the first time? And in looking at the film now, how have your feelings changed on the film, if at all?
“It’s not about how much we lost, it’s about how much we have left.”
-Tony Stark/Iron Man
“Even if there’s a small chance…we owe this to everyone who’s not in this room to try.”
“We will…whatever it takes.”
“You got gifts Parker. But you have a job to do. Are you going to step up or not?”
“You’re all alone. Your friends are in trouble. What are you going to do about it?”
To say that Stanley Martin Lieber – a.k.a. Stan “The Man” Lee was a legend would be an understatement. The man’s impact on the world of not just comic books, or pop culture, but the world itself is not something one can begin to measure. And the impact the man’s work had on my own life – namely his co-creation Spider-Man – there’s just no words.
And of course, my personal favorite scene from my top favorite animated series.
RIP Stan Lee, and thank you for not just allowing us to escape, but for reinventing what a superhero is and should be, and for teaching us all real life lessons through your co-creations, from responsibility to self-acceptance and self-forgiveness and never give up on doing the right thing.
For this month’s Boom Box (as well as a tribute to the now late Steve Ditko) here is a track from a web-slinging classic!
And so a legendary icon leaves us.
RIP Steve, and thank you for creating some Amazing and Strange characters!
(Be sure to check out this documentary, it’s pretty interesting.)
