SPOILER REVIEW: Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Right. Here are all my spoilery thought about Avengers: Endgame, I highly recommend not reading this if you haven’t seen the film. My spoiler-free review is here.

I probably haven’t mentioned everything I noticed or wanted to say because there was so much and I see new things every time I see it. I’ve seen Endgame three times now and still think it’s an incredible end to a series of 22 films. My comments are a mixture of stuff that happened in order, and character focussed stuff. This post is probably a mess so you’ve been warned. (more…)

V is for Valkyrie

Valkyrie is everything a Valkyrie should be; selfless, brave and loyal though after her fellow Valkyrie’s were massacred by Hela, she tried to forget her past by drinking and running away to a new life.

I think Valkyrie’s great because she’s so unapologetically herself. She drinks too much, gets into fights, and captures people for the Grandmaster. She didn’t appear to be a nice person to begin with but that’s because she’d learnt to be tough as she’d been on her own so long.

I had a huge grin on my face when I first saw Valkyrie in her traditional armour with her sword and blue cape walk across the Rainbow Bridge with such swagger before attacking her enemies. She just looked so cool and badass and you could totally see why the Valkyries were such elite warriors.

I loved Valkyrie’s relationship with the Hulk. They would rough house and almost play together which was unexpected especially as so many people are normally scared of the Hulk. I also liked how when the Hulk had become Bruce Banner again, Valkyrie felt like she knew him and vice versa. I’d like to see her interact more with Bruce or Hulk more as I think they have such an interesting dynamic built of respect and affection.
