civil war build up

i don’t think there’ll ever be a “correct” answer on tony bringing peter along to the airport fight. because there are at least four ways of looking at it: a) tony willingly brought along a fifteen year old as a participant of the airport battle b) tony never thought it would become violent and wanted peter to keep his distance c) none of that matters because child superheroes are a stock-standard of comics and d) none of THAT matters because the creators cared about none of this discourse in the end it was all marketing for homecoming

no one will ever be able to convince another on a different perspective, i think, simply because there are so many interpretations both in and out of universe. people will always choose the argument that bests suits their own line of thinking

That woman who blamed Tony for the death of her son though. 

Tony’s face just dropped and you could see all the guilt crash down on him, his eyes turning slightly red, his body tense. 

I was ready to attack that woman, I swear to god.

Civil War
  • Comic -

  • Movie -
  • Tony: we gotta calm down a bit even though I'm the least calm one here

  • Avengers academy -

Marvel needs to lock up ruffalo Seb and the Spidey kid, or at least tell them nothing or constantly have some secret agent following them to tackle them if they reveal any spoilers. Although to be fair who the hell didn't know we're getting nomad Steve I mean worst kept secret.

It’s so funny to me because I remember the build up to civil war and we knew fucking NOTHING and they had all the set pics and stuff on fucking lockdown and then this time the trailer was leaked and the actors have lost all sense of awareness and self restraint.

Status: Complete.

Summary: When a ghost from Clint Barton’s past seemingly disappears, the New Avengers are quick to realize that it means something’s up. What they don’t realize, is that it all comes back to Hawkeye, and his circus past. What are they going to do when the threat they discover suddenly puts Clint and all he stands for in danger? And, what happens when a hooded figure wearing black and yellow shows up for blood?

A/N: I had way too much fun with this, and the long list of character cameos should tell you why. This was my 2015 NaNoWriMo, and I won it by reaching 50k within November - it’s now February and I just finished it at 114,400 words, which is double up from NaNoWriMo. 

Canonically, this fits between Age of Ultron and Civil War, and the ending of the fic leads right into Civil War - there are also mentions of events and other discussions of Civil War which build up the movie.

Happy reading!

Hayley Atwell has never said a word against Sharon or Emily...

she’s spoken against Straon!

Comparatively speaking, I don’t think Hayley’s gotten a lot of hate for this, but I’ve seen enough posts about it that I think we need a come to Jesus moment. 

When asked about Steve and Sharon’s “relationship” (I think that’s a generous term for it, but we’ll go with it) at various cons, Hayley has expressed that she doesn’t think Peggy would approve. By her own admission, Hayley’s expressed her concern about the relationship being “too close” in a “tongue and check” funny manner. 

Essentially, saying what 99.999% of the people who have seen Civil War thought - that the kiss was weird, had no build up, was disrespectful to Peggy and was vaguely incestuous.

Hayley, like most people (and quoting Chris Evans directly here) found Staron to be “icky.”

But she’s never said a word against Sharon. In fact, what she has said about Sharon was very positive. That she felt “protective of her” that she didn’t think Hydra Steve was good enough for Sharon. And that she would not want Sharon to be a replacement of Peggy for Steve. 

She’s also never said a word against Emily VanCamp. In fact, when she was still on twitter, she said how much she liked Emily, even doing some dubsmash videos with her. 

If Marvel actually cared about Sharon or Emily, they would have had Hayley at all of the CW premieres so the two Carter women could be photographed side-by-side. It could have helped quell a lot of the hate. And helped limit, if not prevent the two women, and the characters they play, essentially being pit against each other. 

Because if you actually listen to what both Emily and Hayley have said, neither of them have spoken against each other or their characters. And if Marvel actually cared about either woman, they would have made a point of having them be seen together as much as possible, so this was clearer. 


My mother was right about one thing. People like me need to be kept a secret. Not like The Avengers out in the open. If we do this, we need to be…                                                                                                         Anonymous. That’s the idea.

Marvel’s Civil War build up.

all this dramatic build-up and in reality civil war is just gonna be a two hour thumb war championship

anonymous asked:

do we have to watch all marvel movies to understand civil war or are cap movies enough?

civil war is mcu’s 13th installment so in a way these movies are all connected (some are looser than others) but civil war will be connected the most to captain america: the first avenger, captain america: the winter soldier, avengers: age of ultron, and ant-man, so it’s highly recommended you watch them first before seeing civil war to get a good grasp on the build-up to civil war or why things are happening in civil war :)

anonymous asked:

Just curious, do you ship steve/tony bc of comic? In MCU, steve and bucky have better deeper dynamic and more profound relationship (till the end of line), many love/care/angst/heartbreak. Between steve and tony they're more like colleagues or rival, hell even science bro has stronger chemistry. i honestly set my expectation for CA3 so low just bc the relationship between steve and tony didn't really build up to the level capable of 'civil war' hard feeling

i ship them in all universes so mcu really isn’t any exception. i mean i got into marvel because of mcu. though i will admit it wasn’t until i kind of looked around blogs that shipped stevetony and saw all these panels (contextless ofc bc i’d never touched a comic before) and things about earth-616 that i was like ‘wow that seems like a really cute ship’. (me @ my past self like u sweet summer child)

Beware: Captain America: Civil War Spoilers be here!

Ok, I was disappointed. The Stucky build up for this movie was so huge but it apparently was just to get Stucky fans to clamour to watch. Which was so unnecessary because we would have watched even if there were only 5 minutes of Steve and Bucky even being in the same room.

I feel like the first half was more Stucky than the next. I mean Crossbones mentioning Bucky and Steve going tragic eyes. Later Steve admitting that when he hears Bucky’s name he becomes a 16 year old boy again. Then Steve calling Bucky on his lie when he says what he remembers about Steve is from the exhibit. Then the epic helicopter pulling ‘never let you go’ moment. But it was all downhill after that. It was like as if some Disney exec saw the movie until that point and than called for a very important ‘too gay, need to no-homo this up’ meeting.

What was so un-Stucky thereafter?

1. In the trailers, when Bucky talks about Steve’s mom and the shoes, Steve’s eyes just show so much love. In the movie, not so much.

2. Bucky makes at least two emotive statements about how he feels guilt and how he blames himself. Steve’s reaction however is rather bland. Could have used some tragic eyes here!

3. The Steve/Sharon moments and kiss were kind of ‘where the fuck did that come from?’ Dear Heteronormativity, shouldn’t there be some kind of grieving period of at least one week before you put the moves on your just deceased ex-girlfriend’s niece/your just deceased aunt’s ex-boyfriend? Seriously, if they really needed to insert some emergency straightness into the good Captain, they should have just had Steve kiss Widow. More believable.

4. In the end, Bucky decides to go back into cryo and Steve is basically like, “Are you sure? Ok, have a good sleep, dude.” Couldn’t they spare like even 10 seconds of Steve showing some intense emotions about that?

Sigh. I just hope that some time in the far future, someone decides to remake this movie and decides to make it truly Stucky. We deserve it.

i am so mad though that whedon ignored that tony and steve were actually friends because in none of the avenger movies was that a thing, they were just at each other’s throats the whole time besides when fighting loki/ultron

like actually making them friends would have been such a better build up to civil war, where they actually have a HUGE falling out because of the superhero registration act and it would have been a million times more devastating
