t has been definitely over ten years since I started to watch Marvel productions on Ironman. But I got to say that I never felt the attachment between Marvel and I is so strong. Today when I read a little preview about Avengers 3, I almost cried for the death of so many known figures, Black Panther, Vision, Bucky, not to mention Spiderman (I saw Spiderman movie way ahead of Avengers). Of course, I know they are just film characters, and I am pretty sure everyone of them will have renascence in the second part of Infinity Story.
There is nothing bitter than watching those you care suddenly vanish from your eyes, and you can do nothing about it. For many fans, those character's death may be just scenes on screen, a flash in their memories, but when I saw it, I usually picture them standing right besides me to face the same dilemma or enemy. Like that in Ironman 3, when Tony suffered from trauma of New York battle, I was also in a hard time consisting of academic pressure, family grudge and other stuff. So I was pretty sympathic at that time and felt the similar way with Tony.
Hero films are used to be regarded as ostentious and unrealistic. Even nowadays after ten years of our lifetime spent together with Marvel, there are idiots everywhere online who judge a film solely over visual effect. Guys, come one, a good hero film tells the story we try to express in real days but being shown the door everytime we mention it. Like the struggle between responsibility and self-awareness, democracy and autocracy, personal strings and hard-to-make decisions. We experience them hour by hour, and it tortures us when there is no way around. So we create heros, using them as a symbol of spirit of ourselves. They are almighty and free from social chains, and they are always so wise and enlightening to inspire us out of darkness. Even in some cases, they are bad enough to act less like a hero but a more authentic one of us. They are created because we refuse to just say yes to the real world.
I had the same feeling for Superman VS Batman, which could be a lot more wonderful if editing thoughtfully. In that movie, the intense caused by our moral standards and individualism was maximized. We need heroes but we are not ready to fully understand what it takes to be hero. Being a Superman, sometimes you have to carry everything on your shoulder without concerns that some people might never accept you. When Clark jumpped out of Luxther's party and saved people in fire, people circled around him and stretched their arms to the believed God. Since nowhere and nowhen, we suddenly found something has gone much worse on us that no one except Superman can save us.Your family, your loved, your friends and the charging community could all be helpless at our most destructive pains. We expect freedom and convenience from modern world, but what it truly delivers on some occasions also covers disaster and desperation. We waited it for GOD DAMNED 2,000 years and see what we have in return: autocracy, materialism and deeper lost than any dynasty ever had. Can you count on regular normal people to solve those tragedies? Is there enough cases that prove we somehow are the accusers of the crimes we make? Yes, we need Superman, not to fight against Steppenwolf but to save ourselves from a self-ruining destiny.
To those who never hear a hero story, or do a hero act, I recommend you the film of Avengers 3. I hope it reminds you of those true issues that won't go peaceful automatically. Only fighting save us all, and only fighting should be the principle of this great country.
