In many ways, the film is a huge departure from the source material, but Skid and Andy do dive into how the departure isn’t as big as you might first think.

Also, they laugh a lot as the film is really great….

It’s the biggest Marvel film to date and Avengers: Infinity War is showing no signs of slowing down! James, Skid and Andy discuss the film and it’s source material “Thanos Quest,” “The Infinity Gauntlet,” and “Thanos Rising” and how this film compares to “event comics” of the 80s and today.

Our questions tackled are:

  1. Thanos has more humanity in the film than in the comics, does this work to the audiences favor?
  2. The film has many character moments but few character arcs. In that respect, is it similar to the source material or different?
  3. The film does a balancing act between a host of characters. Does it lose focus or does it stay on target?
  4. Who is the main character of this film? Who was the main character of the comic THE INFINITY GAUNTLET?

In part 2, James, Skid and Andy discuss “Captain America: Civil War,” its source material in the comics, and its possible role as it relates to Avengers: Infinity War! In this episode, they discuss the following questions:

  1. In the seven issue miniseries “Civil War,” the inciting incident is an explosion that killed children at a school because of the inexperience and negligence of young super heroes starring in a reality T.V. show. However, in the film, it is the culmination of continued human collateral damage sustained in battles between the Avengers and their adversaries in New York City (AVENGERS), Washington D.C. (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), Sokovia (AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON), and Nigeria (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR) that leads to the U.S. government’s super-hero registration act. Is there a storytelling advantage to having the inciting incident be a culmination of events over several films leading to CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR?
  2. In the comic series, the argument is over registration. Like, licensing someone to use their powers. In the film, Captain America frames it differently, because it’s about their freedom of choice. In the series, Tony Stark essentially becomes a villain, while Cap becomes a hero. Does this work in the comics? Does it work differently or more or less effectively in the film itself?
  3. Marvel Studios made a deal with Sony to include Spider-Man in CAPTAIN AMERICAN: CIVIL WAR. Is Spider-Man’s presence in the film necessary to tell the story, or was it Marvel Studios sole purpose to introduce the character in order to setup SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING?
  4. The film establishes Captain America as the protagonist of the film. However, it is Tony Stark/Iron Man that has the greatest emotional arc. After seeing the film, there were people who considered themselves “Team Captain America” and others “Team Iron Man.” Does the confusion on which Avenger is the protagonist help or hurt the film?
  5. From a character stand point, it seems that the Marvel Cinematic Universe may have switched its lead character. In the beginning, it was Iron Man, and that’s clearly the case through the first AVENGERS film. But by the end of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, it appears that Captain America has taken center stage in the MCU. Did you agree or no, and if you do, how or when do you think this happened?

BONUS QUESTION: What are your thoughts, hopes, and/or predictions going into AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR?

In part 1, James, Skid and Andy discuss “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” its source material, and its possible role as it relates to Avengers: Infinity War! In this episode, they discuss the following questions:

  1. In Ed Brubaker’s 2004-06 Captain America/Winter Soldier comic book story, the antagonist is Russian. In the 2014 CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER film the antagonist is American. Why do you think the change was made for the film and was it justified/effective?
  2. The “Winter Soldier” story arc changed the perception of who and what Bucky was for the audience and is very effective in doing so. Many of these changes were leveraged even in the first CAPTAIN AMERICA film to make his return as the Winter Soldier more plausible as a real threat. A major difference is that in the comics, 50 actual years had passed since Bucky died for the readers. In the films, just a few years had passed. Was that difference something that had to be handled differently in the adaptation process?
  3. Many people consider CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER the best film so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Do you agree or no, and if you do agree, why is it the best film of the MCU films? If you don’t agree, what Marvel film do you consider the best and why?

BONUS QUESTION: While this film doesn’t directly deal with the Infinity Stones search, that is a constant background thread throughout the MCU. Compared to Thanos Quest #1-2 in which the Mad Titan obtains all six stones (gems, back then, and Soul Gems before that), how did the movie studio have to ch
