A Marvelous Universe That Spans Infinity

Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War Pre Release Review

Avengers: Infinity War is the 3rd Avengers film and the movie the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe has been hinting and teasing about sense the first Iron Man in 2008. This film features most, if not all, heroes introduced and or talked about for the past ten years. Yes, you heard that right: TEN years. Ironman (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), and StarLord (Chris Pratt) to name a few, set to star in Avengers: Infinity War. After ten years of the heroics and bravery of these characters you have to ask yourself, will they all survive? Who truly knows? Well besides the directors and, those whom it concerns, actors playing the ill fated. As far as I am concerned either Ironman or Captain America, or both, will meet their end in this entry.

Chris Evans contract ends after 6 films which, for those of you counting, should end with Avengers 4. Both Robert and Chris Evans have been at this for a long time and are looking to have their finality in the MCU. If we would like to look and compare the MCU to the comics, Captain America should have been assassinated in the 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. In the comics the Captain was shot by Crossbones, a villain for many years in the Marvel Comics. The killing shot however came from his, at the time brainwashed by Hydra, girlfriend Sharon Carter. However none of this happened in the MCU’s film adaptation of Civil War. Regardless who or who does not meet their fate in this film it looks to be the most anticipated and long awaited movie thus far.

With so many actors and Actresses in the film and so much build up for this movie, spoilers are almost a guarantee. Tom Holland (Spiderman), who made his MCU debut in 2017’s Spiderman: Homecoming, is the youngest actor in the roster at age 21. His hit Spider man movie role was well received and the best Spiderman movie sense 2004’s Spiderman 2. With Infinity War so close and such a big movie everyone is trying to learn everything they can about characters, plot, and who may or may not die. Tom has tweeted pics from the set and a pic of a #ThanosDemandsYourSilence, a paper sent to select people about screenings and tours happening over the next few weeks. With tensions high the littlest slip up is taking as a high offense.

The MCU is celebrating 10 years of movies, T.V. shows, and comics. With 18 movies released so far -- Infinity War being 19 -- and several T.V. shows like Marvel's: Agents of Shield, there is so much content and hard work built into this cinematic universe that has been built for a decade. This is a feat that has never been done before and to see where they go from here is almost worth the wait. The endgame film for the MCU is almost here, is long awaited, and may be the highest viewed movie in the MCU. On the 27th of April, people will be going to the cinemas to see the Avengers Assemble another time and, for some Avengers, maybe for the last time.

I Went To "The Bachelor" Auditions

And here's why you won’t be seeing me on TV.

It’s finally time to admit my guilty pleasure: I have always been a huge fan of The Bachelor.

I can readily admit that I’ve been a part of Bachelor fantasy leagues, watch parties, solo watching — you name it, I’ve gone the whole nine yards. While I will admit that the show can be incredibly trashy at times, something about it makes me want to watch it that much more. So when I found out that The Bachelor was holding auditions in Houston, I had to investigate.

While I never had the intention of actually auditioning, there was no way I would miss an opportunity to spend some time people watching and check out the filming location of one of my favorite TV shows.

The casting location of The Bachelor, The Downtown Aquarium in Houston, was less than two blocks away from my office. I assumed that I would easily be able to spot the audition line, secretly hoping that the endless line of people would beg the question: what fish could draw THAT big of a crowd?

As I trekked around the tanks full of aquatic creatures in my bright pink dress and heels (feeling somewhat silly for being in such nice clothes in an aquarium and being really proud of myself for somewhat looking the part), I realized that these auditions would be a lot harder to find than I thought.

Finally, I followed the scent of hairspray leading me up the elevator to the third floor of the aquarium.

The doors slid open. I found myself at the end of a large line of 20-something-year-old men and women and I could feel all eyes on me, their next competitor. I watched as one woman pulled out her travel sized hair curler, someone practiced answering interview questions with a companion, and a man (who was definitely a little too old to be the next bachelor) trying out his own pick-up lines on some of the women standing next to him.

I walked to the end of the line (trying to maintain my nonchalant attitude — I don’t want to find love on a TV show). As I looked around, I realized that one woman had not taken her eyes off of me. She batted her fake eyelashes and looked at her friend, mumbling something about the *grumble mumble* “girl in the pink dress.”

I felt a wave of insecurity as I looked down at my body, immediately beginning to recognize the minor flaws in my appearance.

The string hanging off my dress, the bruise on my ankle, the smudge of mascara I was sure I had on the left corner of my eye. I could feel myself begin to sweat. These women were all so gorgeous. Everyone’s hair was perfectly in place, their eyeliner was done flawlessly, and most of them looked like they had just walked off the runway. Obviously, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

I walked over to the couches and sat down. For someone who for the most part spent most of the two hours each Monday night mocking the cast, I was shocked by how much pressure and tension I felt in the room.

A cop, stationed outside the audition room, looked over at me. After a brief explanation that I was just there to watch, he smiled and offered me a tour around the audition space. I watched the lines of beautiful people walk in and out of the space, realizing that each and every one of these contestants to-be was fixated on their own flaws rather than actually worrying about “love.”

Being with all these people, I can see why it’s so easy to get sucked into the fantasy. Reality TV sells because it’s different than real life. And really, what girl wouldn’t like a rose?

Why was I so intimidated by these people? Reality TV is actually the biggest oxymoron. In real life, one person doesn’t get to call all the shots. Every night isn’t going to be in a helicopter looking over the south of France. A real relationship depends on more than the first impression.

The best part of being in a relationship is the reality. The best part about yourself isn’t your high heels. It’s not the perfect dress or the great pick-up lines. It’s being with the person that you can be real with. While I will always be a fan of The Bachelor franchise, this was a nice dose of reality. I think I’ll stick to my cheap sushi dates and getting caught in the rain.

But for anyone who wants to be on The Bachelor, let me just tell you: Your mom was right. There really are a lot of fish in the sea. Or at least at the aquarium.
