In-doodle-ty War Pt. 6 – The Avengers

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

An amazing movie. Seeing everyone on one screen for the first time was great. The banter between each hero was what I dreamed it would be. The new Hulk reveal was scary then fun. The credits playing Live to Rise introduced me to Soundgarden. Tony mentioning shawarma at the end of the battle started me on a delicious, lifelong, shaved meat-cone addiction. Only 10/10 films have alien whales attacking New York City. Best $18 I’ve spent on a poster.

My favourite part of the movie was actually an Easter egg that not many viewers noticed on first watch. If you zoom and enhance, sharpen. Enhance. Rotate…. THERE! you can catch a glimpse of SHIELD’s other technical endeavors on a table in Banner’s temporary lab. After the success of the helicarrier (an aircraft but it’s also an aircraft carrier), SHIELD must have been trying to reach a wider audience with these fresh new ideas.

In-doodle-ty War Pt. 5 – Captain America

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

Actually one of my least favourite of the Marvel films for a while, but on re-watching I really got into it. If you can get passed the weird, skinny CGI Chris Evans, there a lot of cool and unique characters in this one. I really like the 1940s-50s setting for films, so I might be biased in that way. Captain America is just a good guy, how can you NOT like him for that. And and and that one scene where he jumps onto a giant Hydra tank thing and smashes down on the latch with his shield and reaches in and grabs that soldier and throws him out but in the same motion catches a lit grenade belt thrown to him by his buddy and tosses it into the tank and then closes the hatch and then jumps off and BOOOOM SLOW MOTION EXPLOSION (probably brought to you by Tim Horton’s super slow-mo. Tim Horton’s: official coffee of the NHL).

My favourite part of the movie was when they were building up Captain’s background, and they reveal the first time he learned about fondue. This is later called back when he asks Agent Carter, “So are you two… do you… fondue?”. It really is a tragic scene, seeing his eyes once so full of hope and fondue. Fondue.

In-doodle-ty War Pt. 4 – Thor

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

Definitely a big change for the MCU with the inclusion of gods and Asgard. I enjoyed all the fish-out-of-water stuff, the absurdity of it all was great (still yell “ANOTHER” and make a smashing motion). Not too much action but a good introduction to Thor and his family.

My favourite part was actually the post-credits scene, when Thor returns to earth to volunteer as a traffic directing officer. It sort of consolidates all of the things he learned about himself throughout the film into a single occupation. In fact, if you were a true cinephile such as myself, you would notice the subtle nod towards this scene in the movie (see below):

In-doodle-ty War Pt. 3 – Iron Man 2

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

Though it is one of the weaker movies, the return of Stark to the big screen is still a lot of fun. On the re-watch for this movie, I found Tony’s constant worry while checking his blood toxicity level amusingly relatable (if that’s a term). Sam Rockwell is great as usual, he brought a fun energy as Justin Hammer that mirrored Tony’s in a way.

My favourite part of the movie was when Ivan Vanko (Whiplash, pictured above) was out on a walk with his dogs. It grounded the villain for me and brought that human aspect out of Whiplash that was missing for most of the first 2 minutes of the movie. And don’t even get me started on the cinematography, wow.

In-doodle-ty War Pt. 2 – The Incredible Hulk

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

One of the least talked about movies in the recent MCU, The Incredible Hulk! CGI in this movie isn’t the best, but it was 10 years ago and CGI big green men are probably harder to get down than metallic suits. I think the Hulk works better as a side character in films, but the destruction Bruce Banner brings when he goes green is a lot of fun.

My favourite part of the film was when Tim Roth’s character breaks off from the main story about halfway through and starts his own crime drama series about a researcher who determines if people are lying by studying their facial expressions and body language. It was slimy yet satisfying.

(mixing someone who studies micro expressions and the Hulk seemed hilarious to me)

In-doodle-ty War Pt. 1 – Iron Man

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m re-watching all of the Marvel films and doodling my favourite part of each one.

First up, Iron Man (the best Avenger). I loved how gritty the beginning of the movie was, how different it was from other super hero movies of the time, and the way Tony Stark has no actual powers but builds his own cool stuff. Oh, and Back in Black being the song to start off the movie. So good.

The best scene is when Tony is visiting that small town in the Middle East and happily walks away from the ice cream tank with a delicious cone. I know it’s a bit cliché and the critics hated it but I really thought it brought the story lines together.

A Berry Bad Decision

Definitely a lazy one, even the title is wrong. I was going to draw a Yoshi berry thing in the mouse trap but then I forgot and just drew cheese . I just wanted to doodle Yoshi really.
