The Avengers: Endgame Posters Have Sparked Hope For The Far-Fetched Theory That Loki Isn’t Dead After All

Praying for time travel to bring our boy back.

Since the new Avengers: Endgame posters dropped, it’s been a feeding frenzy of fan theories and revelations. The promo confirmed one character we didn’t see get dusted definitely did, and promised the long-awaited return of another.

But now Tom Hiddleston has really stirred the pot by tweeting out his individual Loki poster, with the caption ‘1 month.’

The cryptic post could well be merely Hiddleston advertising the release of Avengers: Endgame, but surely he knew what this would do to the Loki fandom.

Yes, we saw Loki choked to death by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, and yes, Loki’s poster is grey like the rest of the characters were casualties of Thanos and/or the Snappening.

However, Hiddleston’s tweet has revived hope that perhaps we’ll be seeing Loki again very soon.

One of the major theories that explain a revival of Loki is that time travel will be introduced to undo the events of the Snappening, and maybe go back a smidge further to save our boy Loki.

We will just have to wait until April 24, when the full 3 plus hours of Avengers: Endgame is released in cinema.

The Full Avengers: Endgame Trailer Will Break Your Heart All Over Again

At least Thor and Captain Marvel appear to be getting along!

It is time to reopen old wounds and prepare for fresh injury thanks to the full Avengers: Endgame trailer. The Snappening has left a sufficiently traumatised band of Marvel characters in its wake, but at least while we’ve been busy crying over the disintegration of our beloved Avengers, the leftover gang has clearly kicked into action.

And that includes Captain Marvel of course, who we see meeting the team for the first time in this trailer.

Not only do we relive the death of characters we already watched die in Avengers: Infinity War,

But it looks like we still have some Snappening scenes yet to come. It looks like we’re going to have to watch Clint Barton watch his family disappear so there’s that to look forward to crying to.

Endgame looks distressing for everyone – including Ant-Man, who has come out of the Quantam realm with no idea what happened. But we’re concerned most about Cap, who is clearly giving everything to this final fight.

At least we know that Tony Stark makes it out of space alive because he is nothing if not resilient. Now just pray he makes it through this Endgame, which is out in Aussie cinemas on April 24.

Captain Marvel’s Promo Clip With Kris Jenner Is Cringe, But It's Undeniably Good PR

Its weird but it works.

Captain Marvel comes out in cinemas this Thursday March 7, and the hype can barely be contained. In spite of the petulant trolls who have tried to stifle the excitement for female-led Marvel film, the reception for Brie Larson’s superhero debut is overwhelmingly positive and its set to smash at the box office.

The trailers are electrifying, the reviews are excellent, the world is ready for Captain Marvel.

But not everyone is loving the latest promo, which features Kardashian mom-ager Kris Jenner alongside actress and Real Housewives star Lisa Rinna. It’s definitely an unexpected crossover of characters.

Yes this promo is very cringe. Captain Marvel is an icon of female empowerment and Kris Jenner is decidedly not.

As Jenner and Linna pull up to the Blockbuster the following exchange goes down.

“Hey did you rewind those?” Jenner asks.

“I’ve got better things to do.” Rinna replies.

“Like what?”

“Do you think this hair does itself?”

It’s not exactly progressive stuff, which feels like an awkward friction against the empowerment that Captain Marvel stands for.

The closing joke is that upon seeing Captain Marvel, Jenner declares that, “what she needs is her own movie.”

There’s plenty of Marvel fans lamenting the misalignment of morals between these two worlds of pop culture that have been brought together. But as far as marketing goes, this promotion intentionally casts the film’s net over a broader audience than it might have already reached.

If you drew a Venn diagram representing fans of Marvel against fans of the Kardashians and The Real Housewives, there would be some overlap, sure. But there is a huge audience that would likely enjoy Captain Marvel, but don’t consider themselves the target of the Marvel universe superhero films.

Kris Jenner can get that audience. She’s a connoisseur of content for that audience, and her stamp of approval on Captain Marvel is a smart way to attract new eyes to the superhero screen.

It’s a cringe promo, and an awkward combo, but the Kris Jenner/Captain Marvel crossover is undeniably good strategy.
