I know no one seems to come to this board anymore so this probably won't be read. But I don't do "social media" & given what's been going on with it I'm apparently ahead of the curve with my preference for bulletin boards. So here goes. First: Apparently Pepper said yes to Tony's proposal at the end of SM: Homecoming and Tony's telling her of a dream he had of their having a kid & naming him Morgan after an eccentric uncle. Nice little nod to the comics there.            The Mk. 50 armor, while certainly useful to the writers, is something I don't like. It looks good but the way it operates is basically magic. It was obviously based on Matt Fractions armor & is a Deus Ex Machina in that it can now do whatever it is Tony needs it to in the moment! Tony's past armors, in both the comics & the movies, were fantastic but always stayed plausible. You could believe that someday someone would actually be able to build that suit. But this thing is "Star Wars" tech! It's so far out there that it will never exist! Also, why the need to surgically attach the module to his chest? Why not carry it around & if he gets separated from it just call it to him like he could the last few armors?             Anyway the movie is a little longish, but there's so much going on that only seat fatigue reminds you of how long you've been sitting. The amazing thing is how all of these characters were serviced in this film. Everyone had decent screen time, they all contributed something meaningful to the plot. And how amazing was it to see Peter Dinklage play a dwarf who towered over Thor?                     I like the portrayal of Thanos in this movie. He commits evil acts but isn't really evil, just terribly misguided. After bringing what he believes to be balance to the Universe he doesn't take it over & declare himself God, he goes to a rustic cabin in the woods to watch the sunrise.              The movie ends with him victorious. But remember that Strange said that there was 1 future where the heroes win. I believe Strange explained to Tony that to win Thanos first had to get his way. Something he had to remind him of when Peter dissolved in his arms. A powerful scene BTW, you really felt for Peter & Tony in that moment. I believe that in Part 2 he & Nebula use the Guardians ship to go to Earth to explain to the remaining heroes the future that Strange saw. So on the whole a very good movie & really looking forward to Part 2 next year!

Can you break that up into paragraphs?

Sorry, that's the part of high school English that I couldn't seem to master. Smiley Maybe someday I'll get the hang of it.

Loved Infinity War. Made me smile, cheer, cry (a little but don't tell anyone) and did right by every character in it. Really well crafted, great characterisation, great story. A++

While I enjoyed Infinity War, I did feel it suffered from the sheer scope of the story and number of characters. Not enough time to really spend on any one scene or character. Hopefully Avengers 4 is able to focus a little more on some key characters.

I do hope they address the missing armor(s) given that the Infinity War armor is the Mark 50. A minor plot point, it would nevertheless drive me crazy to see 49 out of 50 suits identified. I'm assuming the Hulkbuster 2.0 is either the Mark 48 or 49.

I think Tony will have to go back to the 49 for A4.  Hulkbuster 2 is the 48.   I totally agree that skipping the 49 would drive me nuts as well.
