Watched Winter Soldier again. Really, really good of course, but as with all Marvel movies it gets better in retrospect.

One of Cap's first big moments in the movie is jumping out of a helicopter. Without a parachute. It is of course an awesome moment that makes him look badass, but it's also part of a pattern for him. Later in the movie fighting the Winter Soldier he throws down his shield, and if that means Bucky will kill him, so be it. Steve is a survivor of the war who doesn't care about surviving anymore. "What makes you happy?" "I don't know." It's not until Endgame that he starts to think about having a life.

I can also see the beginnings of Natasha's arc that the writers and Russos were planning out here more clearly now. She talks about trying to find belonging with Shield after belonging with the KGB. By Endgame she's finally found her belonging. And she learns learns sacrifice from Steve in this movie.

Natasha: If it was the other way around, and it was down to me to save your life, and you be honest with me, would you trust me to do it?
Steve: I would now.

This is followed by her nearly killing herself so that Fury can kill Alexander Pierce.

It also has the best Captain America suit, which reappears in Endgame.

DAT Canada holiday effect made for better than expected drops for The Avengers: Endgame this Monday. The actuals for the domestic numbers are in and due to Canuck Holiday effect the drop from last Monday was only -32.7%, grossing $3,162,240. This is interesting to point out because last year Infinity War 25th day also had the same holiday, with a steeper drop of -41.5% for a $2.7m Monday.

Today also marks the first day the end of the second weekend that The Avengers: Endgame topped Star Wars: The Force Awakens: on its 25th day of that film, it fell -61.2% for a $3.108m Monday.


Total Lifetime Grosses:

Domestic: $774,530,615 29.6
Foreign: $1,844,000,000 70.4% (Not updated)


Daily countdown:

The Avengers: Endgame box office cume is estimated at $2,620,013,227.

This means that it needs estimated 167.951.860 to top Avatar.

Has anyone else ordered those Represent Avengers tees that Ruffallo, Evans, Johansson, etc were promoting?


Mine is coming my way already. I think today is the last day you can pre-order them. It seems to be for a great cause and they look cool.

Takes about five years to develop a franchise, but best case scenario is that they were already doing it on the low before they were legally allowed to, so we might not have to wait that long. And its also not like we can't see individual characters start popping up here and there in the mean time. It's a sandbox and people can just pick up where others left off. They wanna publicly temper fans expectations.
 
I'm not expecting a full-on announcement but more of a tease and a general explanation of their philosophy regarding the Fox Marvel properties.
Feige has already said the X-Men don't factor into the five-year plan they're working on. He was specific in saying that about X-Men, as I've heard some rumors that F4 could be much sooner than anyone thinks. Next year would be five years since the last Fox failure on that franchise and that's the typical waiting time before a starting a reboot.

I’m actually... pretty fine with these new Spider-Man: Far From Home posters. They are a mash up of the individual posters:


And there seems to be somewhat of a theme to it, kinda like fake out posters:


I doubt that these are the main poster, and I find kinda clever how they are playing the team up with Mysterio here.

Personally, I am more excited for F4 anyways since we never got a good version of them from Fox. While I don't expect the X-men to appear fully, is it unreasonable to expect Fiege to discuss how characters like Deadpool (and mutants in general) might integrate into the MCU going forward? I feel like he has to address their general approach to the Fox characters just to set fan expectations and avoid the same questions going-forward.

I think Wolverine / X-Men will be introduced in a similar fashion that Spidey and Black Panther were. I think that by the end of Phase 4 at the latest, we will be fully integrated with the whole mutant situation in the MCU, but an actual film of them wilol only happen in the Phase 5.

How characters are introduced is going to be very different going forward than in the past. Feige wasn't joking about the Disney+ stuff being crucial to the movies.

Everyone's on the right, except for Mysterio. Hmm, what could it mean???

Actuals for the Tuesday’s numbers of The Avengers: Endgame are in and like it was expected, it dropped -8.3% from its Canada holiday inflated Monday for a $2,900,871 Tuesday. Like I was saying yesterday:

It might even go below IW’s Tuesday number, since the drop was way less subdued today because of the Canada holiday this Monday.
With that said, it seems like the last entry of 22 films in the making epic is starting to finally show signs of healthy legs, all it takes is to take a look at the drops week to week: it dropped -49.5% compared with last Tuesday, and that’s still ahead of Infinity War drops as well.
