Can you believe Avengers: Age of Ultron is only four days away? That's insane! Incredible! Exciting! The world's biggest superhero movie is about to smash the theaters in only four days.
In preparation for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the internet has been bombarded with Age of Ultron heavy content. They range anywhere from being youtube videos to blog posts, pictures to slideshows. Excitement is at an all-time high.
OnlyLeigh came out with a brilliant youtube video on the five stages of watching a Marvel movie. I would love to share this hilarious video with you, it is also featured on the HISHE (How It Should Have Ended) YoutTube channel.
Stage 1: Fangirling
I'm picking tickets up Tuesday, eleven of them to be exact. I'll get to the theater at 5:00 pm in anticipation for the fanatical streams of Marvelites coming to the 7:20pm showing of Avengers: Age of Ultron Friday May 1st. This, my friends, is fangirling. Every conversation will be some form of excited speculating about the film we are about to see. This will go on until we sit down and enjoy the movie playing. Everyone experiences fangirling. It's a natural process when going to see a Marvel movie.
Stage 2: Anticipation
The previews are always awesome. Having to sit through fifteen minutes of them before watching the best thing ever created is not fun. THE ANTICIPATION IS KILLING ME ALREADY! Get here May 1st! Just remember, this is also a normal process in watching a Marvel movie. Plus, you'll be glad you waited. Anticipation makes everything better.
Stage 3: Nitpicking
Now, I have sworn my allegiance to Marvel. Nothing they do will ever make me question them, which is why this is the one stage I have still not fallen prey to. Plus, I've only begun to read the comics so it's hard for me to nitpick anyways. However, for a lot of you die-hard Marvel comic AND movie fans, then you will nitpick during the movie. Just remember there are some fanatic Marvelite followers like me, and nitpicking ruins the movie for them.
Stage 4: Amnesia
Amnesia is a perfectly normal response to watching a Marvel movie. No matter if you're a hater or a lover of the Marvel movies, you'll automatically default into the amnesia mode and forget any nitpicking you did while the movie was playing. Just admit it! Avengers: Age of Ultron was freaking awesome! Marvel is freaking awesome! This is my favorite part about watching Marvel movies; gushing with love after I've watched them and letting the whole world know how great the movie was.
Stage 5: After Credits
One simply does not leave a Marvel movie until the end credits are done. And once the end credits scene has played, you at least better act like you knew what the scene meant. Seriously, it's been almost ten years now, and people are still leaving the theater before the credits are over. Seriously guys? What the heck is wrong with you?
The Ultimate Question
So, the ultimate question is: are you going to see Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters May 1st? Are you going to be one of those dedicated Marvelites that fills the theaters top to bottom this Friday?
