A week ago Avengers Infinity war hit theaters with a bang. It is the 19th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the third Avengers movie over all. In this new movie the earth’s mightiest heroes are battling one of Marvels worst villains…Thanos. Avengers Infinity War has been highly anticipated for years and left millions of fans shocked. Many people had various strong feelings when this movie came out because many considered it the beginning of the end of an era. When these movies started coming out most kids attending Churchill were in elementary school.
While walking into the theater Junior Josh Smetzer said “I felt fear as a child reading the comics and how unpredictable the MCU is. I could feel something insane and unusual was about to occur.”
While walking out of the theater Smetzer went on to say “I felt like my heart was in my stomach” Josh felt that he could not say much more because of the recent hashtag that has gone around saying “#ThanosDemandsYourSilence” this hashtag was made to keep people from spoiling the movie for other fans.
Due to the fact that this movie has been in the making for 10 years, I asked Josh how he thinks seven year old him would react to the movie to which he replied “I’ve been [apart of the MCU fan base] since the First Iron Man movie came out, and after all this time, everything has lead up to this, and you really have an emotional connection with all the characters that I don’t think a younger crowd would understand.”
Avengers Infinity War is in theaters and is only the beginning of the end with more movies on the way.
