Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 13 | WandaVision

  Finally the roll out of Phase 4 of the MCU has begun, but not as originally planned. The first to arrive is one of Marvel's new streaming shows - and not the one they planned to debut first. The first two episodes of WandaVision are here, it's the first major Marvel property to be released since Spider-Man: Far From Home back in 2019, and the mysterious show is putting a strange new spin on the Marvel Universe. The MCU is back! Don't forget to check out the rest of our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide by clicking here . After the events of Avengers: Endgame, it is unknown what has happened to Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). Now we see her living with Vision (Paul Bettany) as a married couple in the suburbs. The only problem is their new life together seems to be a TV show, one resembling classic American sitcoms. And someone is watching. But will they be able to figure out what's going on before it's too late, and more importantly... will they want to

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME | Another Moustache Trailer Reaction

With Endgame taking the world by storm, we're now in a better place to appreciate the aftermath of what has happened. First up, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Needless to say there will be many spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so if you haven't seen it stop reading now. If you have seen it, but haven't seen the new Far From Home Trailer - or you just want to watch it again - check it out below. *Spoiler Warning*  We join Peter Parker (Tom Holland) at a low point in Far From Home. The poor kid has suffered a lot in his life, having lost his parents and his Uncle Ben, now he has the loss of his friend and mentor to deal with as well. It makes sense that the superhero life would be getting a bit much for him, and that he just wants to take a break, be a kid for a while. Obviously this being a superhero movie, that's not going to happen, no matter how many times he ignores Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) calls. Holland has demonstrated some real talent in

Avengers: Endgame | Average Guy Movie review

After Thanos (Josh Brolin) successfully wiped out half of all life in the universe, the Avengers - those that remain anyway - are left to pick up the pieces. Each of them must try to deal with what happened in their own way. But when a chance at undoing "the decimation" presents itself, Earth's mightiest heroes must stand together one last time..."whatever it takes." Infinity War may have been a trip through the emotional ringer, but Endgame is more like a rollercoaster ride through it...backwards. This is like nothing we have ever seen in the MCU before, and at the same time feels very familiar. It's safe to say that the stakes have never been higher, the same can also be said of the cost. The MCU has been criticised in the past for it's portrayal of death, and the interesting work-arounds our heroes have used to cheat it. But this time - as promised by the Russos - the price of resurrection is very high, and it's one the Avengers must be

Avengers: Endgame | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The second trailer for Avengers: Endgame has arrived, and it's a little more hopeful than what we've seen up to this point. If you haven't already seen it, check it out below. It starts off with a little recap, what our heroes have been through over the last ten years, the things they've seen and the people they've lost. Tony thinking about how he became Iron Man, Steve Rogers doing the same with his own past and Thor thinking about his father and how he became King of Asgard, only to see half of his people - if not more - wiped out in an instant. Hawkeye teaching what could be his daughter - or possibly a young Kate Bishop - to use a bow and arrow is a particularly pertinent shot, given that we have no idea what has happened to him since the snap - or "Decimation" as it's said to be known in the movie - other than something caused him to take on a new identity as 'Ronin', and that Romanoff will be the one to hunt him down. 

Avengers Endgame | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The trailer for Avengers: Endgame has finally arrived. No doubt you've already seen it, but if not you can check it out below. Well, it seems things are looking even bleaker than they did at the end of Infinity War. Tony is stranded in space, onboard what appears to be the Milano. There is a glimpse of Nebula at one point. The question is; what caused the ship to be so badly damaged? Was it the battle with Thanos on Titan? Or has something happened in the interim? Whatever it was, it seems Tony has finally come across a piece of technology even he can't fix, and is pretty much at breaking point.  The rest of the team are still on Earth, reeling from the moment in which Thanos snapped his finger and half the population of the galaxy disappeared. But at least Steve managed to find a moment to shave his beard. He and Romanoff have some sort of plan in mind, enough for Steve to break out the stealth suit from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and his lucky compass,

So That Avengers 4 Trailer Leak...Do We Believe It?

Warning: Possible Spoilers Esquire have recently reported on a post to the Marvel Studios subreddit. A user posted what is supposed to be a description of a leaked trailer for Avengers 4, which has now been deleted. But the question is; is it real? Some consider it "too detailed to be fake", while others are calling it "bad fan fiction". Here's what the post said: The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: "We were destined to lose." Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Rogers say: "We have come so far." Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: "Tony". Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios logo appears. We get a glimpse

Avengers: Infinity War | Average Guy Movie Review

It has been ten years since Iron Man first flew into cinemas. In that time fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have enjoyed a rollercoaster ride of awesome movies...and some not so awesome movies. But all great things must come to an end, and the culmination of the last ten years has begun with Avengers: Infinity War. Picking up where Thor: Ragnarok left off, things aren't looking good for our heroes; the Avengers are divided, half of them are wanted by the authorities, Thor and Banner are far from Earth and have just encountered Thanos' ship; Sanctuary 2. The Mad Titan is planning to wipe out half of all life in the universe and to do that he needs all six Infinity Stones. And the only people standing in his way aren't talking right now, but they do have some new friends to help them, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Black Panther and the armies of Wakanda. But will that be enough? The Russo Brothers have once again delivered. There ar

Avengers: Infinity War | Theories

Avengers: Infinity War is said to be the most anticipated upcoming comicbook movie. As usual, Marvel Studios are playing things close to the vest. According to Elizabeth Olsen, the cast only received their individual pages of the script. In one of his scenes, Tom Holland didn't even know who he was fighting! Given all this it's really no surprise that Infinity War is the subject of rumour and mass speculation. Recently Screen Rant posted a list of "18 Insane Avengers: Infinity War Rumours That'll Blow You Away" (click here to read the full article), here are the ones I found most interesting... Quicksilver will be Resurrected At the end of Age of Ultron, Pietro Maximoff gave his life to save Hawkeye and a young boy. But we all know that death doesn't seem to mean much in the MCU. According to Screen Rant, Kevin Feige has promised that Infinity War will include every hero that has appeared in the MCU. But did he just mean the ones that are still l

The Infinity Stones

The Infinity Stones - as explained by the Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy - are singularities left over from the Big Bang. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor points out that several Infinity Stones have shown up in the last few years, five to be exact. Kevin Feige has stated that the remaining stone will be revealed at some point in Phase 3, but when can we expect that and how will it tie in to the story? The five stones that have been uncovered are: The Space Stone , contained within the Tesseract, was hidden on Earth for centuries. Until 1942 when it was taken by the Red Skull, who used it to power his inventions. At the end of the war it was recovered by Howard Stark on behalf of the Strategic Scientific Reserve. It remained in the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D. until Loki stole it and used it to open a portal to the other side of the galaxy in an attempt to take over the world. Whereas Loki's goal was to rule Earth, his benefactor/Boss Thanos, had bigger plans
