You guys are not going to believe this! I’ve got here a scoop hot off my own brain that’s going to blow everybody’s minds! Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe pore over every tidbit and morsel to find some hint about what the future might hold — and I’ve discovered something that’s going to put every other fan theory and Easter Egg idea to shame! Because I am just that damn smart!
So OK, we all know that scene in Avengers: Endgame where Okoye mentions an “earthquake under the ocean” to Black Widow. Right? Everybody knows that scene!
Now, a lot of fools thought this was a hint towards Namor the Sub-Mariner. Because it’s underwater, obviously. But that’s nonsense. Namor can’t cause earthquakes. What were those people thinking?!
But I’ve figured it out! The greatest Easter Egg of all time! The first real, proper hint of the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Because who causes earthquakes? That’s right: Rictor!
Hello?! Isn’t it obvious? The first mutant ever mentioned in the MCU is going to be that random hanger-on from various X-Force and/or X-Factor comics! Because he causes earthquakes with his mutant powers! And They mentioned earthquakes!
So it must be Rictor! He’s probably going to be the first mutant to ever show up in an MCU movie. The fans are going to love him.
What else could cause that underwater earthquake that was so important it warranted a single line of dialogue in Avengers: Endgame? Are you going to try and tell me it was Avalanche instead of Rictor? Don’t be silly.
Clearly that single, innocuous line of dialogue was hinting towards Rictor and X-Force and mutants in the MCU. It’s so obvious.
There’s no way it was just a natural, undersea event meant to highlight Nat’s growing sense of uselessness. The only sensible meaning is Rictor.
Which obviously also means Shatterstar! You heard it here first folks: MCU Phase 5 will kick off with a Rictor and Shatterstar movie where they go on a journey under the sea!
Avengers: Endgame was great and hugely entertaining, and I’m all set to grab the DVD next week. But first, Honest Trailers tackles the hit and mostly complains about how it handles time travel. Look, you just gotta not worry too much.
Just go with the flow, baby, and enjoy some Avengers: Endgame! I saw it three times in theaters, and while I don’t think it’s as good as Infinity War, it’s still good. Avengers: Endgame is currently sitting at my favorite movie of the year so far.
I have a contentious relationship with the How It Should Have Ended people, in that they don’t know and don’t care who I am, and I am mostly just annoyed at how they sometimes don’t stick to their one great gimmick. Thankfully, those folks go back to their gimmick in a great way with Avengers: Endgame!
Quality video. A nice reminder that they know what they’re doing. And it’s great to see them go all out for that “Avengers Assemble” scene!
Ten years have come and gone in the blink of an eye. I can still remember the events surrounding that original Iron Man film in 2008, and my going to see it at the midnight release. I can still remember the popularity of that first trailer, and the Onion article mocking that popularity. Oh how far we’ve come, and how how great the journey has been!
I loved Avengers: Endgame 3000.
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
I have a feeling my thoughts on this film might change as time goes on. I viewed Infinity War a bit more harshly last year than I eventually settled on, and I mellowed out more on Black Panther. The same could happen here. But having seen Avengers: Endgame twice in the opening weekend, I’m very pleased with the film and everything it had to offer. It’s not perfect, and I’ve got some nitpicks, but overall it was everything we could have wanted from the Infinity Saga finale.
Join me after the jump for my full review and thoughts on Avengers: Endgame. Be warned that this article contains FULL SPOILERS and assumes you’ve seen the movie.
There are MAJOR SPOILERS for Avengers: Endgame in the latest Tell It Animated video. Why the dude behind these videos thought spoiling the movie would be a good idea is beyond me. He definitely didn’t need to spoil anything to go over the history of Captain America costumes in cinema.
But since most of my readers have probably (hopefully) seen Avengers: Endgame, they can get away with watching this vid!
But seriously, if you haven’t seen the movie, don’t watch this delightfully animated video. He gives the whole game away. It’s ridiculous.
