This is a seriously spoilery post, so if you haven’t seen AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON scoot along lil ‘ doggie! Unless of course you like spoilers, in which case, stay, read enjoy! I’m actually putting the rest under a cut so no one actual lays eyes on something that don’t want to see. You actually have to click , so no blaming me!
ULTRON WAS AMAZING! I was so impressed that they didn’t focus on the same characters as the first Avenger’s movie. Hawkeye was much more to the forefront, and I thought it was great that while everyone else became brainwashed by Scarlet Witch, he had provisions in place not to let that happen again.
Hawkeye is my favorite Avenger. He will ALWAYS be my favorite Avenger. Also, whoever created this gif, you are AMAZING! I could stare at it for hours. I’m sure Clint’s wife could too! I know a lot of women were probably disappointed to find out that he had a wife and kids, but I LOVED that. Loved that it was off grid, it wasn’t angsty, and he had this awesome back story going for him. When the Avenger’s had no where else to go, Hawkeye took them home. There really isn’t a better way to do that.
Anyways! I was also really impressed with how well Marvel did Black Widow and Scarlet Witch. Of course, we’ve seen Black widow’s kick assery before. She is absolutely amazing! Like Hawkeye she’s nothing but human without any highly specialized armor, gamma radiation side effects, or godly biceps. And her back story, holy shit! The things these people did to her! I loved being inside her head! She’s strong, kick ass, and her demons, while they haunt her from time to time, don’t own her. And of course there was the awesome love interest between Nat and Bruce. That was epic. I also like how they didn’t get an HEA, but hey Hulk was only in two comics for The Avenger’s before taking off, so they kept it plausible.
I have to admit though. Despite these two made of pure awesome. The Scarlet Witch has stole the show. I WANT TO BE HER! Elizabeth Olsen did an amazing job, not only with the accent and personality, but her hand movements were amazing, and the emotion came through without a doubt. She just stole the movie. Strong, vivacious, doing what needs to be done even when she’s terrified. Olsen brought it and if anyone doubted how she would do, just go see the movie. The girl is made for Scarlet Witch.
Also the biggest spoiler may be the death of her brother Quicksilver. It was a NOOOOOO moment.
But then, I had a thought.!
So, of one thing I’m HOPING. This is not the last we’ve seen of Quicksilver.
PS: Dear Marvel. I’d thank you to remember that women are people too and the Women of Ultron deserve the recognition of their outstanding characters. The fact that you’ve opted to do minimal to no merchandise is misogynistic and disappointing.
