marvel is moving on to infinity war but like…my heart is still hanging onto the potential of the post-2012 avengers team…like in my heart i still want 135 marvel movies kinda like catws with the avengers making jokes and meeting new people and being friends. nat and clint go on a mission. tony and steve have to work together for a movie. bruce just kinda takes a nap and waters the plants he keeps on his floor at the tower and that’s his whole deal. the team is a team and they work together as a team of people who are decent to each other and are a team and get along and sometimes argue over what kind of takeout to order

yes please

American Library Association’s Avengers READ posters. (x)

I always find things like this so ironic. I spent most of my childhood defending myself from adults who were trying to stop me from reading, and yet they pretend they want kids to read. They don’t. Kids who read will figure too much out.

Hey guys?

Heat Exhaustion Symptoms

  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea
  • Pale skin
  • Profuse sweating
  • Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration

Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?

He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes.  Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason.  Well, let me ask you this.

How do you torture a frost giant?

With heat.

Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason.  He’s trying to show us something.  The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame.  Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things.  Thanos is using him.

The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers.  Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer.  The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues.  Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change. 

It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost.  Well, what did he do after that?  Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses.  And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him.  He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding.  Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”?  He’s projecting. 

So, when he trips?  That’s the aftershocks of torture.  That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise? 

“You will long for something as sweet as pain.” 

He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.

Reblogging this photoset again because OH MY WORD LOKI NO.

Reblogging because I had trouble finding the full version.

the funniest thing about the directors commentary of the avengers (2012) is like straight up the first thing whedon says is “i get asked a lot, why did they pick you to make this”

I think everyone is still asking that.

Clint “Arrows” Barton

Scott “Tic Tac” Lang

and Wanda “Red” Maximoff

(”She doesn’t have red hair. Why do you call her ‘Red’?”

“Pray you never find out, fool”)

I’ve often seen where other people’s posts have gotten even better through the responses left.

But this?  THIS IS JUST BEAUTIFUL.

This should have been awesome, but it’s marred in stupidity. Why the FUCK is Loki in here and not Black Widow?!?!? The most iconic seen from the film is just ruined by this. It makes zero fucking sense and just pisses me off for some unknown reason. My mind is officially boggled.
