Civil War (no spoilers)  
I saw Civil War last night. Overall, I really liked it. It was a good movie. SO much better than BVS. ( I know they're not a direct comparison, but CACW tackled some themes of BVS (collateral damage) and did it 10x better.) I will say, it did not have the emotional impact of the comics, because, as we all know, the Steve/Tony friendship has never been solid in MCU. I also think Steve was my least favorite character, though at many points I did agree with his statements, and at a few points was kind of like "Tony, stop and listen!". (Clint was kind of a dick, too.) I have many thoughts, but I also feel the need to see it again before truly processing anything, which sadly won't happen until school is done in 1.5 weeks.

HOWEVER.

Someone I was with, when we got out, literally said Tony Stark was the villain. Actually said those words together. And I just...

I flipped. Dude actually took some steps back from me.

I am way too emotionally invested in Tony Stark. Typically I keep my ranting confined to the internet but...

Did your companion actually watch the movie? I was Team Cap all the way from a philosophical standpoint, but my heart broke for Tony. He really was trying to do the right thing. That was my biggest concern going in that they'd make Tony the villain. Why was Clint a dick? And what's BVS? I keep thinking I know, but I'm tired and apparently kind of foggy.

He thinks he watched it. >:|

Eh, Clint was just kind of a dick to Tony. Since he wasn't there in the initial meeting, it felt like he showed up out of nowhere. Like, you know I love Hawkeye. But basically he was rude to Tony. Some part of that was time, him not getting lines discussing his point of view, but the one time MCU has used "futurist" to describe Tony, it was Clint taunting him/being a jerk.

BVS=Batman vs Superman

I gave Clint a pass on that one. He was locked in a prison cell at the time.

I hated Man of Steel, so I haven't seen BVS yet. How was it?

Locked in a cell, yes. Still a dick thing to do. I'm not saying I hate him or anything. Just that he was a dick in this movie. :)

I liked MOS a lot. Damn close to hated BVS. I need to do a post on why, it just hasn't gotten made. Basically, I liked Ben's acting, but I the plot was shit, Batman wasn't Batman, Lex Luthor was actually the Joker (as in the writing, not that he literally is the Joker) and Wonder Woman was the saving grace of the entire thing. And technically Lois actually stops the fight so Lois and Diana were A+ for the film's last 20 minutes.

It was Lois that ruined MOS for me. It's nice to hear that Lois and Diana are at least the saving grace of BVS.
