As to not anger the Gods of cinema, I'm going to keep this post completely spoiler free and instead just highlight a few impressions I got from the film. First and foremost, the Russo brothers had a near impossible task. To not only join (nearly) every major hero in the current Marvel Universe but to walk this movie into a sequel while also preserving the forward trajectory of Marvels expanded Universe. This includes confirmed films like this summers Ant-Man 2 and Captain Marvel. The movie gets to the action and some surprising deaths pretty quickly and does a very good job of not slowing down too much. While there are multiple moments in the film featuring random pairings and first time introductions between multiple heroes, the action sequence are fantastic and the trailers don't even scratch the surface of some of the stuff we see. There is one specific scene between villain Thanos and (removed name because I don't want you to know what its coming) that features an absolutely incredible fight sequence. It is also no secret that when the movie screened earlier this week, twitter was ablaze with reactions praising the films ending and I have to say, it is far superior than what most comic book films accomplish as well as what a majority of Marvel films have pulled. Speaking of the mad titan himself, Brolin makes for an incredible and memorable villain, a far step above a majority of comic book antagonist. There are more than a few shocking moments and the film ends leaving you with a lot of questions, more importantly who is going to come back when Marvel is ready to move on to their next phase. All in all, Marvel has been on a steady uphill climb with their last few films, Guardians of the Galaxy 2,Thor: Ragnarok, and the box office shattering Black Panther and they are definitely in position for another hit. Make sure to catch Avengers: Infinity War in theaters now.
Cinemacon is going on this week in Las Vegas and with it, Sony has brought us the official trailer for the Venom film.

The last we heard of No Man's Sky and developer Hello Games, the team was in some very hot water regarding some allegations of false advertising. While they were ultimately cleared, it didn't do much for the games struggling reputation to bring back disillusioned players but they might have a second chance to get it right later this year. As it turns out, a listing on the Italian Amazon page shows that the titled may be heading to the Xbox One console as soon as June 29th. The latest port will hopefully allow gamers the ability to meet up with one another, a feature originally promised with the launch of the game only to later to revealed to not be so. No Man's Sky currently has a 5/10 on Steam so we will have to see if the console version will bring in a new fanbase or if this games already cemented its fate.
After last years Omnic Uprising event, it looks like it's time to dive into the history of the villainous Black Watch. Overwatch dropped a trailer detailing the upcoming event, scheduled to run between April 10th-30th, which will have groups of four people team up against waves of enemies. Hopefully we will learn more about Blackwatch and get some new treats like sprays and skins, including the already revealed Moira skin pictured above. Take a look at the trailer and get ready for the event to launch next week!
We have a lot of good news from CW as well as some bad. While the network announced their finale dates for their current airing series, they also renewed 10 as well. This includes fan favorites like Arrow, and The Flash, as well as new comers Black Lightning and even the expensive Legends of Tomorrow (which means Constantine is returning to TV once again). Supernatural has also been renewed for an impressive 14th season. As for The 100, iZombie, Valor, and Life Sentence, it looks like we will have to wait until May for a final decision on those series. Are you happy with the renewals?
