Mark Ronson And Lykke Li Get Mysterious At Midnight In Vintage ‘Late Night Feelings’ Video

Mark Ronson and Lykke Li have discoed back to the 1970s in their new video for “Late Night Feelings.” It’s a star-making vehicle for Lykke Li’s tantalizing presence and movements. In the process, they have created one of the most captivating videos of this year.

Now, this is how you pack personality into a music video. “Late Night Feelings” is effortlessly cinematic and groovy. The song paints the funkadelic atmosphere while the camerawork itself expertly captures a woman’s midnight madness. Lykke Li is the main attraction of this show and begins by taking a shower, hopping out, grabbing a cigarette, and slowly meandering down the steps and crawling along the walls like a tarantula. She’s intently focused on Ronson who’s performing with a guitar on a tiny television. She’s enraptured by his presence.

Somehow, Lykke Li melts into a bathtub and then finds herself inside of the television next to Ronson. While she performs a magnificent routine with the producer, she’s revealed to not actually be inside of the television, but instead to be still in her living room having a jam session. Lykke Li has completely lost her marbles and it’s clear as she grasps at his legs in her imagination where she’s just as much the star of the situation as he is. Lykke Li passes out from exhaustion at the end, effectively putting the caps on the entire charade.

“Late Night Feelings” is the title track for Ronson’s forthcoming LP of the same name that’s scheduled to drop on June 21. It will also feature Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, Alicia Keys, and more.

Take a look at the 1970s-themed video up above.

Who Will Be The MVP Of Avengers: Endgame?

After over a decade of buildup and a year of waiting, we are in the endgame now. Avengers: Endgame finally hits theaters this weekend, and as Cap says in the trailers, this is the fight of their lives. Therefore it is worth speculating about who will be the most valuable player in that fight and offer the greatest contribution in the victory over Thanos we presume will happen before the credits roll.

With fumbles and dropped passes aplenty, there wasn’t really any hero deserving of an MVP award in Avengers Infinity War. You could maybe say Doctor Strange or Thor, but it would be a small consolation, like the Dallas Cowboy’s Chuck Howley who won the MVP award in the 1971 Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Colts. The Avengers were positively destroyed last time, but they have another chance in the rematch and someone is going to need to step up.

Who that someone will be is the question. There are a lot of contenders, some more obvious than others, and there’s a not-insignificant chance that Endgame’s MVP will be given their award posthumously. So let’s take a look at the team members who seem to be the most likely MVP candidates of the endgame, and for the purposes of this exercise, I’ll only be including heroes who weren’t dusted at the end of Infinity War.

Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame

Tony Stark

It’s personal between Tony and Thanos, and between his brains and firepower on the field, Iron Man seems like he has a great shot at being MVP of Avengers: Endgame. Iron Man came close to making the ultimate sacrifice to save Earth in The Avengers, and there’s a possibility that this time it might actually stick. Steve Rogers called Tony Earth’s best defender and it seems entirely possible that Iron Man could sacrifice himself performing some incredibly heroic act that wins the day at the eleventh hour. That would make him a strong candidate for a posthumous MVP award.

Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame

Black Widow

Lots of people seem to be getting a good chuckle out of Black Widow training for the fight with Thanos by doing target practice, but that’s ignoring how much of an impact she has made in the MCU without superpowers. Consider how Natasha Romanoff was able to close the portal in The Avengers, thus stopping the flow of Chitauri into New York. Being the MVP isn’t just about who has the highest kill count, it’s about who came through with the right play at the right time. Black Widow’s mission in Endgame might be less flashy, but that doesn’t make it any less vital.

Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner in Avengers: Endgame

Bruce Banner

With Shuri dusted, Bruce Banner’s mind is one of the most powerful tools the Avengers have at their disposal. That may prove important, but Bruce Banner’s greatest potential to earn MVP depends on his ability to get his green friend to come out for a rematch with the Mad Titan. We haven’t seen the Hulk yet in the trailers, but if he does return to form, which seems likely, he will be a huge asset in the physical battle against Thanos and his forces. It doesn’t seem like he will be the one to end Thanos, but he could play a crucial defensive role, creating a lane for someone else to finish him off.

Ant-Man in Avengers: Endgame

Ant-Man

If you ask subscribers of the “Thanus Theory,” there is only one way Thanos will be defeated, and it’s a dirty job that only Ant-Man can perform. Yet even forgoing anal ingress and corporeal detonation, Ant-Man may still prove to be the most valuable and important Avenger in Endgame. Ant-Man’s knowledge of the Quantum Realm could be the key to bringing everyone back, and that alone might make him the most valuable. In the first trailer for Endgame, Scott Lang’s existence was made out to be a big deal and even though he’s a rookie on the Avengers team, gushing about playing with Cap, this may prove to be his big moment.

Captain America grimacing in battle in Avengers: Endgame

Captain America

In our own poll about who will die in Avengers: Endgame, Captain America was overwhelmingly marked for death. MCU fans have been convinced that Steve Rogers is going to die for some time now, and with Endgame set to complete his arc, that eventuality seems nigh. Cap sacrificing himself to save others in an incomparable feat of bravery would be completely on brand for the character and makes him perhaps the strongest contender for MVP. He’s also the team leader; he may not be able to take on Thanos in the way Thor or Captain Marvel could, but if the Avengers are victorious, there’s a good chance that his planning and play calling will be the reason why.

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in Avengers: Endgame

Hawkeye

Avengers: Endgame seems poised to act as a swan song for the original 6 Avengers, so it stands to reason that one of that lot will have a John Elway-esque ride off into the sunset with a game-winning performance. I don’t know if Hawkeye is the most likely candidate for that, but you can’t underestimate the importance of one well-placed arrow. Hawkeye also seems like he has lost a lot, and in order to get it back, he may do something recklessly heroic. We also must note that Hawkeye was on the bench the last time the Avengers fought Thanos, so maybe he’s their good luck charm.

Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Avengers: Endgame

Thor

With a clutch appearance and countless Outriders destroyed at his hands in the Battle of Wakanda, Thor made a strong case for the MVP of Avengers: Infinity War. Alas, his Hail Mary axe to the chest proved misplaced and they lost. Thor will want to make up for that mistake in Avengers: Endgame and avenge his brother, his fellow Asgardians and all those snapped out of existence when he wasn’t strong enough. And unlike most of the Avengers, he has a weapon that could theoretically kill Thanos. If Thor does in fact deliver the killing blow, that would make a solid case for him being MVP.

Karen Gillan as Nebula in Avengers: Endgame

Nebula

No other character has hated and wanted to kill Thanos for as long as Nebula, and if she finally succeeds, she would be the unquestioned MVP of Avengers: Endgame. Nebula played a pivotal role in The Infinity Gauntlet comics storyline and Marvel could borrow from that here. Her primal war cry in the trailers is chilling and there’s no doubt that Nebula will do ‘whatever it takes’ to defeat Thanos and avenge Gamora. And yet, her hatred could make her too emotional and a prime candidate for a Peter Quill-level mistake. But she’s definitely a dark horse MVP contender to watch for.

Captain Marvel showing her unflappable confidence in Avengers: Endgame

Captain Marvel

In one of the clips from Avengers: Endgame, Bruce Banner asks how they know this second fight against Thanos will end any differently, to which Carol Danvers responds “Because before you didn’t have me.” It’s a confident response, and given her ridiculous power level, she may very well be right. For a while it seemed like Captain Marvel was being positioned as the cavalry coming in to wreck shop when the need was most dire. It now seems she’ll be in the film from early on, but regardless, she could prove the difference maker in this fight and a great performance here would set her up nicely to lead the MCU in Phase 4 and beyond.

These are just the contenders that seem like they could make the biggest impact going in to Avengers: Endgame but someone else could surprise us. Rocket Raccoon, War Machine, Valkyrie, Pepper Potts, Happy Hogan, who knows? Ultimately, I think the safe money here is on Tony or Cap, but everyone is bringing something to the table and depending how the movie plays out and how you judge what’s ‘most valuable,’ any of these characters could be the difference maker that undoes The Decimation and leads to Thanos’ defeat.

Steer clear of spoilers and ready your bladders because Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26. Stay tuned to CinemaBlend for all the latest coverage on the MCU epic and let us know in the poll below who you think will be the film’s MVP.

Who Will Be The MVP Of Avengers: Endgame?

See Photos From Gigi Hadid’s Denim-Themed Birthday Party

Gigi Hadid turns 24 today, April 23, so to celebrate she hosted a big party in New York City that gave us some serious Britney and Justin red-carpet flashbacks. You know, as you do. The model’s denim-and-boots themed birthday party also included singalongs, delicious-looking sliders, and a festive cake with a gigantic sparkler in the middle. In other words, it was the best birthday party ever?

Naturally, the invite list was noteworthy too. Guests included celebrity friends like Olivia Culpo, Ashley Graham, Helena Christensen, and Hailee Steinfeld, who were all photographed wearing their best takes on Canadian tuxedos. Most of the guests followed the birthday girl’s lead, in fact—Gigi Hadid herself showed up in a white crop top, jeans, and a jean jacket.

It seems the only person who ignored the dress code was Hadid’s longtime friend Taylor Swift, who arrived at L’Avenue at Saks Fifth Avenue in a houndstooth coat and a floral Zimmermann dress that very much fit the pastel hue of her current era.

Hadid didn’t seem to mind that Swift wore an off-theme look, though, considering the pair took tons of photos together in the photo booth.

Hadid’s family members—including her parents, Mohamed and Yolanda Hadid, and her sisters, Bella and Alana Hadid—also were at the festivities, of course.

Make-up artist Hung Vanngo posted a photo and a video of Bella Hadid’s look, which featured a full-on denim bustier. She added her own videos throughout the night, showing off her mom’s denim three-piece suit as well as videos of the birthday girl having a blast singing along to Rihanna and Britney Spears.

Other posts from the night include the cocktail menu (there was a “For Yolanda” drink and a “Taurus Juice”), snaps of the burger sliders, and tons and tons of photo booth material.

Sure, a denim theme might sound casual—but Hadid clearly knows how to throw an elaborate statement-making event.

Women’s Reproductive Rights Should Matter to Companies, Per New Research from NARAL and the Harris Poll

Earlier this month, we marked Equal Pay Day. In press releases and on social media, companies across America committed themselves to closing the gender pay gap and touted the importance of women’s empowerment and equity. In the era of the Women’s March, the unprecedented surge of women’s participation at the polls in 2018, and the record numbers of women that those women elected in the midterms, women’s advancement should be top of mind for companies right now.

Standing up for women’s rights is not only ethical. It’s also good business, with consumers eager to spend their dollars with companies that align with their values. Still, a critical aspect of this conversation continues to be overlooked: reproductive freedom. Reproductive freedom means that no woman can be fully empowered in the workplace if she cannot control her own body and decide her own destiny. This includes the ability to access birth control and abortion care, to go to work and not face discrimination while pregnant, and to have paid family leave to care for a new child.

To millions of working Americans, this isn’t some abstract fight about social issues. These are bread-and-butter issues that affect their ability to continue their education, rise up in their career, and plan for their future. And it couldn’t be any clearer that the American people expect businesses to take reproductive freedom seriously, too. A new report from the Harris Poll on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America suggests that staying silent on reproductive freedom may be a missed opportunity for companies. The poll, which surveyed 1,271 employed adults, indicates that companies should be just as vocal about and supportive of reproductive freedom as they are when it comes to the many other issues they stand up for, including equal pay, LGBTQ rights, and voting rights.

When women have the autonomy to choose if, when, and how to have children, they can build healthier families who are more resilient in times of economic downturn, which helps our communities grow stronger and companies prosper. The bottom line is supporting reproductive freedom is good for business. When women are provided essential benefits, productivity goes up and employee retention and loyalty increase. Over 70 percent of those polled acknowledge that reproductive freedom is tied to women’s overall empowerment and equality.

In the last two years, 29 states have passed over 100 laws denying women access to basic reproductive healthcare, including abortion care. Federal efforts to limit access to birth control, such as the Trump administration’s “domestic gag rule” that dismantles Title X, the nation’s birth control and reproductive health program, threaten the reproductive healthcare of millions of women. And if we can’t assume women’s rights are protected at the federal level, it’s up to all of us to ensure reproductive freedom is safe in our communities. In short, the leadership of the corporate community right now is absolutely critical.

We saw the power of the corporate community when more than 50 business leaders in Georgia spoke up as the state legislature considered, and then passed, a law that bans abortion at six weeks—before most women even know they are pregnant. The people who signed were leading with values. They were standing up for women and in line with the majority of Americans who want to keep access to abortion care. According to the survey, over 67 percent of respondents feel it is important for their employer to take a stand on reproductive freedom, including abortion. And 60 percent of employees reported that they would be more loyal to a company that offers coverage for prenatal care, family planning, and abortion care.

Mother’s Day Gifts 2019: What to Get Your Mom

Mother’s Day always seems to be a time when we shower the women in our lives with clichéd gifts they likely neither want nor need. Sorry, but this is 2019, and most mothers simply do not need any of the following: an apron, measuring cups, wall hangings that specifically say “mom”—or any other cheesy motherhood merch, for that matter. This year, get the mom in your life something she’ll actually get psyched about: legit-cool leggings for the athleisure expert, made-to-measure flats that make hours on her feet more bearable, a luxurious eye mask for those precious (if limited) hours of sleep. Keep reading for more ideas—and you’re welcome.

Mother’s Day is the time you outwardly—or more enthusiastically—shower the moms in your life with love and appreciation. Oh yeah, and gifts. They’ll claim they don’t need anything, which might be true, but it still feels great to show them how much they means to you by giving them something special. Instead of wall hangings with cheesy quotes about motherhood or another mug that proclaims “World’s Best Mom,” pick out something they’ll actually get psyched about and use.

If she’s always on her feet, get her made-to-measure flats that make it a little more bearable; if she’s an athleisure expert, gift her legit-cool leggings she’ll want to wear right out of the box. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts for every type of mom. Keep reading for more ideas—and you’re welcome.

Chris Pratt Really Didn’t Want To Audition For Guardians Of The Galaxy

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a massive place, with a ton of franchises and endless heroic characters to follow. But certain properties stand out among the rest as fan favorites, and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely one of those. The movies follow a motley crew of misfits, featuring an all-star cast including Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Pratt.

But it turns out that Chris Pratt wasn’t always keen to play Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, he initially refused to audition for Marvel Studios, making the casting process a complicated one. Marvel casting director Sarah Finn recently recounted this at the Avengers: Endgame premiere, when asked about which Marvel blockbuster was the hardest to cast.

Well, this is surprising. Chris Pratt seems like the perfect choice to be Star-Lord, given his mixture of comedy and action experience. But the Parks & Rec alum was originally hesitant to join the franchise, so it took some convincing.

While moviegoers know just how successful the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise grew to be, there was no guarantee it would resonate so well with audiences before its 2014 debut. The characters were not household names, and the team included a giant talking tree and a foul mouthed raccoon. Chris Pratt can’t be faulted for having some trepidation, before finally agreeing to meet with Sarah Finn and the folks at Marvel.

But once Chris Pratt agreed to read for Star-Lord, Sarah Finn still had to convince James Gunn. As she mentioned in her same interview with Variety,

To me, it sounds like Sarah Finn gets the credit for casting Chris Pratt because she deserves it. The casting director clearly saw something special about Pratt’s talents and the lone human Guardian, and it’s a decision that seems to have paid off. Pratt has gone on to perform the part in three Marvel blockbusters, and is expected to reprise his role in Avengers: Endgame.

While there was some pullback from both Chris Pratt and James Gunn, eventually the director saw Pratt read as Peter Quill. And almost instantly, he realized that was the right guy all along. Why don’t casting directors get Oscar attention, again?

Star-Lord faded to dust in Avengers: Infinity War, and the character is expected to somehow be revived and pop up in Endgame. In the meantime, fill out CinemaBlend’s Endgame death pool, and be sure to check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

This Year’s Easter Box Office Was The Worst In A Decade

This past weekend, the latest film in Warner Bros. and New Line’s Conjuring Universe, The Curse of La Llorona, opened to a solid $26.5 million. That exceeds expectations considering that some predictions had it struggling to make $20 million. And yet, the overperformance of The Curse of La Llorona was not enough to stop this year’s Easter weekend box office from being the worst in over a decade.

Including The Curse of La Llorona’s solid debut, the domestic box office returns over the holiday weekend amounted to an estimated $103 million. According to The Wrap, that’s down 22% from last Easter when Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster Ready Player One was the big release. That $103 million is also the lowest the Easter weekend box office has been since 2005, when it totaled only $99 million, with the Ashton Kutcher comedy Guess Who leading the charge with $20 million.

It is true that the box office is in a slump this year compared to the highs of recent years, but this low Easter box office seems less a product of that and more the result of the calm before the Avengers: Endgame storm. Studios gave the Marvel event a wide berth, lest their films get snapped out of existence. So other than The Curse of La Llorona, the only other new wide releases over Easter weekend were Breakthrough and Penguins.

The faith-based Breakthrough capitalized on the Easter holiday with a third-place debut of $11 million. The latest Disneynature doc Penguins opened last Wednesday in advance of Monday’s Earth Day and made $2.4 million over the holiday weekend. A low-budget horror movie, a faith-based film and a nature doc are not exactly blockbusters to begin with, and the fact that Avengers: Endgame releases this week seems to have depressed audience turnout, with everyone preparing for the 3-hour MCU epic.

It wasn’t all bad though. Captain Marvel, which fell out of the top 5 last weekend, returned at number 4 over Easter, jumping 6% week over week to $9.1 million. That helped push the record-breaking film over $400 million domestic. That increase is perhaps the result of an Avengers: Endgame bump, as audiences rewatch MCU titles or get caught up before next week.

The Curse of La Llorona did manage to push Shazam! out of the top spot in its third weekend in release, but the DC superhero flick still pulled in $17 million to add to its solid run. Perhaps if last week’s Hellboy hadn’t crashed and burned so spectacularly in its opening, this Easter weekend box office wouldn’t have been the worst in 14 years. Alas, the attempted comic book reboot dropped 68% in its second weekend.

Despite this past weekend’s disappointing returns, in keeping with the spirit of the Easter holiday, the box office will rise again next weekend. Avengers: Endgame arrives on April 26 and all signs are pointing towards a massive opening ($300 million y’all, I think it’s happening), with some theaters running round the clock screenings over the weekend.

The Original 6 Avengers’ Most Defining Scenes In the MCU

We’re in the endgame now. The Avengers movie we’ve been awaiting, theorizing about, obsessing over and anticipating more than any other movie for quite some time is finally coming to theaters this week. Avengers: Endgame has been marketed as the culmination of over a decade of Marvel films revolving around the core six who kicked this whole thing off. The original six Avengers also just happen to be some of the few heroes left after Thanos’ snap.

Since it’s distinctly possible we’ll be saying some goodbyes to the heroes at the center of this franchise phenomenon, let’s take a trip down memory lane to the moments in the MCU that were instrumental in defining the climax we’ll soon be witnessing. Avengers Assemble!

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in Iron Man

I Am Iron Man

Iron Man kicked off the MCU back in 2008 with an unforgettable bang from Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark when he broke the superhero cardinal rule: announcing your identity… oh, and on live television. It was already a different kind of origin story about a billionaire playboy’s journey into creating his own tech to undo the damage his weapons company had created. The final moment of the film showed the new Marvel universe wouldn’t be playing the same game as Superman or Batman and making a mark of its own.

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man i

I Told You, I Don’t Want To Join Your Super Secret Boyband

After Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury makes his first appearance during the post-credit scene for Iron Man, the Avengers ringleader came back for the sequel to give Tony Stark a bit of an intervention on his recklessness midway through the film. He brings along Black Widow too on her first ever appearance in the MCU. It’s a funny scene that has Fury calling Stark out for what he’s doing wrong and helping him out on his hero work. While Stark is great at playing it off, he probably needed a dose of S.H.I.E.L.D. on his side at that moment before he had the Avengers.

Chris Hemsworth as Thor in 2011 film

If He Be Worthy

Chris Hemsworth’s Thor has certainly come a long way since having bleached eyebrows and Natalie Portman’s Jane on his arm in his 2011 origin story. The quirky action flick introduced audiences to the complicated relationship between brothers Thor and Loki, culminating in the scene where Thor stands up to his brother (who’s controlling The Destroyer) by sacrificing himself in order to save the people on Earth. While he takes a pretty bad hit, it earns him the right to his iconic hammer from Odin. At the same time, it angers Loki further which later kicks off the events of The Avengers.

Chris Evans as Captain America in First Avenger

Peggy, I’m Gonna Need A Raincheck On That Dance

This scene gets me every. single. time. It’s the moment when Cap must force down the plane in order to save everyone while on the line with Peggy Carter. It’s also the scene that signals Steve Rogers’ ultimate sacrifice to become a hero, which he ends up needing to live with nearly 70 years later when he is dug out of some ice. As Cap’s journey continues, the past that could have been haunts him and his relationship with Peggy is an important one (even alluded to in an Endgame trailer).

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Avengers

I’m In The Middle Of An Interrogation

It’s crazy to imagine that just a few years ago in 2012, a showcase of female badassery such as Black Widow’s at the beginning of The Avengers was something new to be introduced on screen. Since we have Rey in Star Wars, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel and so on, but I distinctly remember the way Scarlett Johansson lights up this scene in particular feeling special. It was the start of an era for action flicks and this defining scene was certainly part of it. From her snark and the skilled choreography, this is the moment when we were all sold on Black Widow.

Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner in Avengers

That’s My Secret Cap, I’m Always Angry

Aside from the snap, this might just be the most iconic moment in the MCU to date. As Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye deal with the chaos attacking New York, Bruce Banner later rides up on a motorcycle to help. While the character’s fear of losing control to the “other guy” is brought up throughout the film, here he embraces it with the above line and completes the Avengers team once he Hulks out. That iconic shot of the six of them in a circle taking on the alien army showed the power of the MCU as the team was successfully brought together.

Chris Evans with Sebastian Stan's bucky in Captain America: Winter Soldier

I’m Not Going To Fight You, You’re My Friend

Skipping to Captain America: Winter Soldier, Steve Rogers grapples with his past in a big way when he ends up in a showdown fight with his ol’ pal Bucky (a.k.a. Winter Soldier) in the finale of the film. A brainwashed Bucky is beating Cap up real good, but he refuses to fight with his best friend, even trying to jog his memory to help him remember. It’s a clever work of irony that the one piece of his past he can have is the person who he is at odds with. While the relationship between them never seem to feel like the ‘40s, an ounce of Bucky does come through when he saves Cap from drowning.

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Linda Cardellini as Laura Barton in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Did You Bring Auntie Nat?

The MCU has always struggled a bit to give Hawkeye a story arc for the audience to care about, especially when he wasn’t given a movie of his own prior and his abilities are objectively less impressive than his fellow members. Avengers: Age of Ultron helped turned that around when it was revealed that Hawkeye has a family of his own living out somewhere in a safehouse set up by Fury. His wife (Linda Cardellini) and kids surprise the other Avengers when they turn up to the house and Natasha has a cute banter with them. The scene helped to humanize Clint and get us more interested in his double life.

Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man and Don Cheadle as War Machine in Captain America: Civil War

We’re Still Friends, Right?

Fans were divided into Team Cap and Team Iron Man in the event film Captain America: Civil War that had a bit of the old and new team of heroes fighting against each other based on principle. It will be hard to soon forget the airport battle that had Spider-Man, Ant-Man and Black Panther being featured in the mix, along with most of the original Avengers punching it out in a dynamic we’re not used to. Black Widow and Hawkeye going head-to-head was really fun, along with Cap and Spidey, but when Rhodey got hurt, it took a turn for the serious.

Captain America and Iron Man fighting in Civil War

I Can Do This All Day

Civil War went for another unexpected match-up of hero versus hero when Iron Man and Captain America ended up getting into a heated fist fight over what should be done with Bucky, who is revealed to be the killer of Stark’s parents, but is still Cap’s old bestie. It was a heartbreaking moment to watch as the heroes who once worked side-by-side were violently going at each other until Cap pins Iron Man on the floor and walks away with Bucky as he yells “That shield doesn’t belong to you. You don’t deserve it. My father made that shield.”

Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok

Are You Thor? The God of Hammers?

After Thor: Ragnarok delivered a completely different (and welcome) side of Odinson thanks to Taika Waititi’s direction, the third Thor film also upgraded his powers as well to someone much more powerful than a big hunk with a hammer. After Hela rips out his eye and looks to be doing quite well for herself in taking over Asgard, Thor is able to see a vision of his father, who tells him that the hammer isn’t the source of his power, but a way to wield it. To “Immigrant Song,” Thor comes out with this thunderous powers and with some help from Hulk and the gang, takes down her army. His newfound powers come in handy for Thanos, but aren’t quite enough…

Josh Brolin as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War

You Should Have Gone For The Head

This scene brings us up to speed to the jaw-dropping events of Infinity War where the Avengers actually fail to stop Thanos from possessing all the Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life in the universe. The scene when the core Avengers have to watch as heroes all around them turn to dust and they are powerless to stop it is truly one we won’t soon forget, especially since it’s so untypical for them to not save the day. The ending was a complete shock at the end of the movie, especially when they were so close to victory. It showed the Avengers are flawed and not at a place of unity.

What’s next for the Avengers? We’ll know soon when Endgame hits theaters on April 26. What are your favorite moments in the MCU so far? Let us know in the comments below!
