the avengers are cool

Wow the anti-Pepper discourse started up IMMEDIATELY. Honestly though, what is wrong with somebody needing to take a break from their relationship? Pepper went through several traumatic experiences, is the CEO of a major company, and isn’t a superhero - she’s terrified that Tony is going to disappear, die, or be irrevocably changed by his experiences because all of those things HAVE happened. Tony (who I love) is incredibly self-destructive and Pepper isn’t his therapist!!

The MCU didn’t bother to flesh out their break or anything AT ALL but it’s pretty easy to fill in the blanks in ways that aren’t “Pepper Potts, Tony’s long-time friend, employee, and lover, doesn’t care about Tony and is a terrible person”. Has no one considered her taking a break for her own emotional stability? To take the time to learn how to help Tony and herself cope with the world-shaking issues they have to face together? To determine for herself whether or not she’s willing to continue loving somebody who will inevitably die before her? 

The way people treat women in film is incredibly disappointing. The “strength” required of them to be “good” is always above the strength expected from male characters.

I want a Hawkeyes movie where Hawkeyes is deaf like in the comics, and in the first five minutes he loses his hearing aids, and the rest of the movie is silent except for a constant running commentary of what Hawkeyes is thinking until the very end when he gets his hearing aids back.

And there would be closed captions or something for when people use sign language.

And when people don’t sign and he has to read lips, they should get genuinely hard of hearing people to translate so that they know what words or phrases are hard to catch by lip reading.

Also, lots of explosions with no sound. I feel like that would just be cool.

  • someone: why do you like the xmen so much?? i mean they're cool and all but so are the avengers
  • me internally: because the xmen are a group of oppressed people who are Constantly fighting for their survival and equality, while also fighting for all of mankind, the people who actively discriminate against them, when they really don't have to (unlike the avengers who mainly spend their time fighting each other or not caring about mutants). Their story of oppression is relatable to those who deal with discrimination and oppression in real life, therefor making their story all the more compelling. Not to mention, the xmen stories have magneto who is one of the most interesting, complexing and captivating villain, (if you can even call him that), in the entire marvel universe.
  • me out loud: idk they have pretty cool powers

So in Civil War it seems like Peter doesn’t know what an AT-AT is but in Homecoming his room is covered in Star Wars stuff and he’s excited about building a Lego Death Star, so I’m choosing to believe that he’s just acting like he doesn’t know what a AT-AT is to play it cool around The Avengers.

So why is Chris Evans nicknamed Dorrito? Sorry I just don't know lol

Don’t worry, anon, I’m going to help you as best as I can.

Once upon a time - more than three years ago - the great Chris Evans was found a new nickname. After ‘Cevans’, we were all graced with the comparison of his body to a Dorito. #heart of gold and shoulder waist ratio of a dorito. It reached a peak after Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Why? Because he is the human Dorito. Look at his shoulder to waist ratio. It’s triangular.

I know right? A real Dorito. That is why every time I reblog Chris, it’s tagged as “My beloved Dorito”.

There’s a particular post on Tumblr that became so popular that the idea gained artists who began to add the Dorito!Steve Rogers or Dorito!Chris Evans to their fan works just for fun. It’s still especially featured in fanfictions.

You know what, though? The nickname became so popular that Robert Downey Jr. called Chris a “Dorito” twice during SDCC 2014. Who knows for how long it’s actually been going on? They were filming Avengers: Age of Ultron at that moment, so I’m sure the cast and crew called him Dorito a lot of time on set!

In April 2015, the Doritos brand - in promotion of Avengers: Age of Ultron - had a Steve Rogers/Captain America “Cool Ranch” bag.

And do you know how Chris reacted? Because there’s something you wanna know about him. He’s a simple guy, he loves Doritos chips. He loves them. He thought it was a life goals!

That same year, when he was promoting the movie with his fellow co-stars, he had the chance to taste his Doritos with his friend Chris Hemsworth and the video made the world go crazy.

That is how the legend of Dorito!Chris Evans was born, my friend.

So I got a text from a wrong number the other day and I decided to mess with them because I'm a terrible person...

I figured that they’d eventually text cancel, but they never did

Then I decided to change things up a bit

I don’t even know who this girl is, but she apparently thinks Cap’s birthday is kool

I figured, why not add another Avenger to the mix?

Then I said, what the heck, I’ll just send stuff about all of them

At that point, I knew this person was great (and I’m guessing she probably has a tumblr) but I wasn’t expecting them to respond at all, let alone in those amazing one word responses.
