Ok @tnyfrontrow I've given some thought about your article in The New Yorker, a very presumed and prestigious news/media/pop culture publication that has been around for quite a long time. I've temporarily stepped out of my comfort zone - 1
2 - to understand the viewpoints that you are attempting to address amidst the flurry and overwhelming amount of Superhero genre movies and television shows that have surged in popularity in the past few years. I've disagreed with some of the reviews in the past, but have not...
3 - ... addressed them as they seemed to still give their fair opinions about superhero movies. Here's the thing, though. I'm not here to address you as a person because I don't know you, and I'm sure that you have a respected following as a writer. What you have failed...
4 - acknowledge, however, is that in 10 years, Marvel Studios has put in an overwhelming amount of work, love, and dedication to the fans, and Infinity War has been the Studio's Opus to their fans for the past decade. Let's put it this way...
5 - ...Current comic book series have arcs done in about 5-6 issues creating one story arc until the next. Even in those issues, some plot holes are possibly addressed later on. In Marvel's Cinematic Universe, the comic book equivalent have been seen in their "phases." ...
6 - ...with each phase representing their own arc. The fans, even for those who may not have read comic books, have understood and appreciated the threads both from the characters and the films themselves interweaving amongst each other with great storytelling and visuals. ....
7 - But wait, a minute, doesn't that sound like how a comic book works? Well, to answer my own rhetorical question, YES! Each film has done just that in showcasing and portraying their characters with relatable personalities where the audience feels some attachment to, or ...
8 - disgust or understanding perspectives of said characters. This is #InfinityWar. This is the 10 years of a long built up series that fans have longed for. This is 10 years that Disney and Marvel Studios have given us this gift that is not an "ad" as you have said, but ...
9 - the culmination of each film's development of each character and story as a whole. I struggle to still feel as though we have not seen the same movie. In addition, how do you explain this to young children who look up to these characters on screen? You do not go up to them...
10 - talking about pyrotechnics, visual mumbo jumbo or anything of the sort. These films have been something that both adults (young and old), and kids enjoy because it creates that conversation. It becomes interactive when kids start talking about these characters...
11 - when the source people (comic book writers and artists) discuss that this is what Marvel Studios is doing right. This IS a movie. This is NOT an ad because if you've missed anything within the past 10 years, it's that the advertisement was already there with Iron Man 1.
