Wanda Maximoff

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…)

W is for Wanda Maximoff

I really do love Wanda a lot and I especially like how she’s grown into someone who’s more comfortable in their powers and who they are as the series has progressed.

I do think Wanda should be held accountable for her actions. In Civil War it’s clear she’s not ready to be out in the field and so while she did save a lot of people, she inadvertently hurt and killed others. However, she’s still learning and trying to do the right thing and atone for her mistakes.

Wanda is seriously one of the most powerful characters in the MCU. I think she’s up there with Thor and Carol with regards how powerful and potentially dangerous they are. I mean, she held back Thanos who had five Infinity Stones at the time while simultaneously destroying a sixth Infinity Stone! She’s so strong and badass and amazing! But as well as being a badass, she’s sweet and caring and loving too.

I’ve got to take a moment to mention one of my favourite character dynamics in the MCU – Wanda and Clint’s relationship. He’s like a surrogate dad to her and I love how they talk to one another and protect each other in battle. Wanda’s way stronger than him with her powers, but because of her past she isn’t so confident or aware of the world compared to Clint so they can help each other out when they need it. Also, I totally believe Wanda’s has gone and babysat Clint’s kids while he and his wife go out for dinner more than once.

SPOILER REVIEW: Captain America: Civil War (2016)

I posted my spoiler-free review of Captain America: Civil War a few days ago and you can read that here. This my spoiler review and it’s kind of ended up in any old order where I mostly talk about each character and what I liked about them. Be warned this is a long post – it’s over 1,800 words! Now below is all my spoiler-filled thoughts on the movie so once again you have been warned! I really advise you not to read any further if you haven’t seen the film. (more…)

SPOILER REVIEW: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

This review is full of spoilers. It’s all my thoughts about the characters and the plot, and all the things I loved and the stuff I wasn’t over keen on. You can read my spoiler-free review here. I wasn’t sure of the best way to go about this – it turned into a weird episodic structure where I talked about each character in turn and the things I liked/disliked about what they did. It also ended up being rather long, seriously it’s over 1,800 words! Last warning for SPOILERS! (more…)
