    That’s pretty funny.

    “Benedicts Squared”

    They should have had Sharwarmas (sp?), though….

    I like the shot from the set. Way cool. I would have been more into it if Quicksilver hadn’t been rudely killed off in Age of Ultron. Sorry man, but I grew up with that character, and he was my favorite. Joss Whedon stuck a knife in my ribs about the time I was most enjoying seeing him onscreen. I understand there were competing issues with the X-Men films, so I know what his reasons were. But that doesn’t do anything for the impact his death had on me. It was enough like the death of someone I knew that I feel all wrong about seeing the other characters again. I want to, because they’ve grown on me a lot, but AoU was an awkward film with the overt efforts to promote Hawkeye, his “wife”, kids, farm, and the effort to push Wanda to the front, for her chick value. I was hoping his death was one of those things the “getcha” with later, when the character reappears, having healed, however, I have been thus far disappointed.

    I guess Whedon hasn’t quite got a grasp on how much the characters have impacted our childhoods, because killing them off should, at the very least, occur the way the comics did them. The reason is, we fans followed the original stories, knew the backstory and in most cases, even understood when a character died. But movies, which just love to change storylines and even character races, make those changes to put their own “mark” on it without any regard to the investment in time fans have, and when that happens, it feels very much like the directors are disrespecting the original artists and disrespecting us fans. Salt in the wound, if you will. This is why I can’t seem to escape the pall that AoU left on me. Overlong, awkward scenes at the Hawkeye farm, weird existential attitude from Ultron, and Quicksilver dies amidst a lame comedy line, and NO mourning or funeral! Just his dead body laying on the deck of the carrier. The fastest guy on Earth gets downed by a rain of bullets he should have been well able to avoid. Yeah, it’s awkward, and the effects are lasting. Thanks a whole bunch for nothing. Thanks ever so much for that drag, Whedon. You let us down badly on that one.

    Oh, I’ll go see the newest movie, in spite of my disgruntlement. I just wish I was free to enjoy it more. Again, thanks for the photo. I have RDJ on my desktop, his arms wide as he introduces the Jericho missile. A great shot!

      I get the feeling Whedon just gave in to the stupid misguided idea that was promoted about the same time by some quarters (read: DC fanboys), that for a movie to have weight, someone HAS to die. I find the concept lazy. That’s not to say the status quo should stay the same as when the movie started, but there are many ways of showing consequence without killing people just to fill a quota.

      If they absolutely HAD to kill him, I think it would’ve been more pallatable if he died in Infinity War at the hands of Thanos, not with a rain of bullets that as you said he should’ve been able to avoid easily.

      But w/e…the problems in AoU are well known. Hope they nail IW.
