    Yet another layer of subtle subtextual brilliance: The irony (no pun intended) of seeing Tony Stark, a genius inventor, expert on modern technology, a man obsessed with his legacy, fighting so hard and so intensely for a lost connection to his past. In this moment, Past ≥ Present/Future

    Bull shit! That scene in Black Panther being the best acted scene in all of Marvel is an ass of an opinion.

    hm, fair point. but the best marvel scene is when meek does the little scissor dance. fucking classic, made me weep.

    hold up hold up, you saying that the russo brothers said that if civil war hadnt happened then infinity war and endgame would have been very different, right, fine. but what that means is that baron zemo is directly responsible for not only the deaths of half the universe, but also indirectly responsible for the defeat of thanos. making him the single most influential character in the mcu, whether he recognises it or not.. boobs chocolate seven layers of massive abrasions in turtlenecks.

    I agree with you that this scene is a very important scene, but I don’t think it’s the best one.
    I think the best scene in the marvel cinematic universe was the end credit scene of the first avenger when Steve says, “I had a date”
    This line just tells us so much about the character and what his morals and philosophy’s are

    "These films aren't power fantasies, but vessels to explore our collective insecurities." - Very, very astute. Indeed, I can see how the ruining of a genuine friendship plays into the Russos wanting to explore the real stakes and consequences of the characters' actions. They put the human in superhuman.

    Thor's monologue to Rocket in Infinity War is wonderful. Chris Hemsworth's performance paired with the heartbreaking sentiment is something special. Banner and Black Widow's exchange in Age Of Ultron about wanting to leave the Avengers and start a family and why that's impossible is a highlight as well.

    I think you have Cap's philosophy wrong, his character is really destroyed. His friendship with Bucky isn't the only reason he stands up for him, though it is one part why he believes Bucky is innocent. Cap's real philosophy is that he always stands by what is right - UNCOMPROMISINGLY so. He will not bend to the accords since it means giving up liberty. He will not compromise in protecting Bucky because Bucky is innocent and he knows the case won't be done right if he doesn't go out of his way. This philosophy still stands in Infinity War, where Steve REFUSES to kill Vision now just to ensure Thanos loses. "We don't trade lives."

    I don't know the best but one of the best is Captain America: Winter Soldier's "I'm with you till the end of the line." scene.

    One thing to note about the "mission report" date in Civil War -- if you pause and look at the newspaper clipping of Howard Stark's death in the intro to the VERY FIRST Iron Man (where they're going over Tony's achievements at the award ceremony), the date is December 17th, 1991. That, my friends, is what a master plan looks like.

    Wow, this was amazing. I never even noticed how the camera movements and shot lengths changed in that final scene. And I definitely agree it’s the best Marvel scenes

  • Joaquín Zúñiga

    I’m kind of sad that you didn’t talk about the moment their friendship is officially over: when Captain America is about to deal the final blow, Tony covers his face because he genuinely believes in that moment that Steve is going to kill him.
    There’s not greater breach of trust. There’s no coming back from that.
    He thought his friend was going to kill him and that was a reaction. No thought put into it.

    The best scene is in Age of Ultron where all of the Avengers are fighting off the robots and it's in slow motion and it spins around showing vision, thor, iron man, scarlet witch - another one is in infinity war when Thor arrives in Wakanda

    The best acted scene with Michael b Jordan? I'm sorry, I know people thought he was good, but he is an absolute horse crap actor. His acting and his dialogue are what takes that movie from great to meh for me.

    I just wish the scene hadn’t been so HEAVILY FEATURED IN THE TRAILERS. As soon as they got to the Siberia place I recognized it as he place from the trailers steve and tony would fight. Would’ve been so more impactful if I hadn’t known tbat

    Imagine if dc had made a civilwar movie would you have made it be part of the batman trilogy,superman trilogy or would you make as a standalone movie that have repercution thrueout the dc universe
    Who would be the villain,
    What incident would led the goverment to creat the "sokovia accords,
    What cataclysm would made the hero fight each other

    Also, a personal failing doesn't mean your philosophy has failed, just that you have. It could indicate that there are flaws in your philosophy, but by no means invalidates it necessarily.

  • outboardprsnlstndup

    I've seen alot of talk recently focusing on Captain America's failings in Civil War. His deception did play a pivotal role, BUT, it's IRON MAN who wants to rope them into a bargain with NATO-like schmucks that Captain America doesn't believe in, and with good reason. All this because Iron Man is a narcissist and believes he has to fix everything after a woman tells them of her sons tangential death to Socovia destruction. Which, by the way, also because of Starks creation of Ultron. So if you are going to play on Steve's deception, it's more the icing on the cake that tops the Tony Stark ten layer screw up special. Fault Meter: Steve: 9% Tony: 91%
    I think people are right, but still missing the whole picture. Good analysis of the creation of the scene, though.

    No the best acted scene is when Tony loses to Steve. Tony thinks Steve is about to kill him it's gold.

    Civil War is one of if not the best mcu movie ever made. This movie is designed to not only be a fun, entertaining action flick, but also one that can be interpreted in so many different ways.. It’s great on a technical level and on a thematic level. Civil War is fucking amazing and nobody can change that.

    Marvel in general's best seen is Daredevil season 3's fight with Kingpin 2nd place is Punisher's speech to DD about his family's death and 3rd place is Foggy finding out Matt is Daredevil...DAREDEVIL IS A MASTERPIECE and is a better "Trilogy" (which technically isn't a trilogy and was supposed to have multiple other seasons) than Captain America, Thor, AND Iron Man and he's also been better than any Batman movie adaptation

    My only gripe with marvel is that they introduced two important characters too late. Doctor strange and captain marvel. They should have either been introduced them in phase 2 or earlier in phase 3 especially captain marvel
