To celebrate that the new Avengers film is out soon I figured I’d do a Marvel tag! I don’t really talk much about my love for Marvel, mainly because I’ve never really thought of a post idea that could fit in with that but also partly because I didn’t need any nerd-bros slipping into my DM’s about how I’m not a true fan because I don’t read the comic books. Anyway, let’s get into the tag!
1. Favourite Movie?
I am always in the mood to watch Avengers Assemble to be honest with you, it’s the movie that got me into Marvel and super hero films in general. It was just such a good movie and it’s weird now thinking that we all got hyped to see what, six super heroes together, when now we’re counting down the days until Infinity War when there are gonna be absolutely tons of super heroes all fighting together. It’s mad.
2. Favourite Character?
It changes all the time and I know my friend Becca is going to kill me but probably Bucky Barnes. Back when I’d only seen ‘Avengers Assemble’ and all the ‘Iron Man’ films I used to slag off Captain America a lot and stick up for Iron Man but after going to the Captain America triple bill when Captain America: Civil War came out I swapped and preferred Captain America to Iron Man (to which Becca always calls me a traitor). After watching the Captain America films I quickly started loving Bucky who was also Becca’s favourite character – I’m serious, in college the girl genuinely called me ‘Bucky’ instead of ‘Buddy’ more than once. But yeah, my favourite’s Bucky regardless of whether Becca thinks I’m a traitor or not!
3. MCU OTP’s
I don’t really have any – I hate the idea of Nat and the Hulk, like did they seriously compare Nat not being able to have kids to the fact that Bruce literally turns into a giant green monster? Really? Even if you bring in Black Widow’s past the two of them aren’t really the same at all and I just thought it was an irritating comparison. I also hate Wanda and Vision like that’s just grim, what the hell?
4. Who deserves their own movie?
Normally I’d say Black Widow ‘cos like feminism and I just generally once upon a time thought it would’ve been good but now I’m not really a fan of Scarlett Johansson and I just can’t get quite as hyped about it as I could before. I think Scarlet Witch having her own movie would be good but that won’t happen. I’m so glad Black Panther got his own movie and that it was amazing!
5. Favourite MCU film score?
Honestly I’ve never thought about it before. Probably ‘Avengers Assemble’ though, the score is wicked.
6. What future film are you most excited for?
Lame but I’m gonna have to say Infinity War. I know it’s a boring answer but it’s so close and I’m just so excited to finally see it. Other than that I’m also looking forward to Deadpool 2.
7. Which MCU character is most like you?
Me and my friends always play games where we assign each other characters but these can often be based on weird things – for example Hirst was always Thor ‘cos of her blonde hair. So I’m not really sure. Maybe Wanda because she just wants to do the right thing and feels really guilty when she messes up – I do generally try to do the right thing and I have a massive guilty conscience so yeah, I’ll go with Wanda.
8. Would you want to be Xandarian, a Frost Giant, Asgardian or stay Terran?
I really loved Thor Ragnarok so you know what I’d 100% wanna be an Asgardian. Also Asgard looks a lot nicer than Earth so like, why not?
9. The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy?
I liked Guardians of the Galaxy a lot more than I thought I would but I’m gonna have to go for the Avengers of course.
10. Which MCU character would you want to be friends with?
Thor so I could visit Asgard and he would just generally be a great person to be friends with.
11. Favourite MCU actor?
Tom Hiddleston – I had a crush on him as a teenager but kind of got over it but now after watching Ragnarok I’m back on my crush again. Whoops!
12. Baby Groot or Big Groot?
Baby Groot obviously! Who wouldn’t pick Baby Groot?
I hope you’re all as hyped for Avengers Infinity War as much as I am and that you enjoyed the tag!
