Final thoughts (I think!):

Great to see the proper Ant-Man helmet back in 1970; shame they didn't go with that or something more similar for the actual helmet. Paul Rudd, though not really bang on with the comic version, does work well and in some ways is the glue of this movie. He feels like a Marvel guy.

I would have preferred Strange's plan to have been a bit less tenuous. Like he could have actually guided things. Seems a long stretch for everyone to make the choices they did and for it all to work out. It's one thing to see this unlikely strand and go along with one element that sets it in motion, entirely another to not be allowed to guide things to avoid the 13-odd million other outcomes. Would have preferred it to have been a bit more wily.

Good to see Tilda Swinton again. For some reason, it doesn't irk me to have her character so different to the source. Perhaps because I had no strong connection to the Ancient One as a reader (well before my time) and because she is so damn good in the role. The delivery is so crisp and thoughtful.

They're still doing the Black Widow movie, from what I've heard.

Unless Natasha doesn't stay dead, I don't see the point. If its a flashback/prequel movie, I probably won't see it until it hits Blu-Ray/DVD.
If its an origin story, I may not see it at all.

BLACK WIDOW is supposed to be set in 2006.

I wonder if they will actually call her Black Widow in the movie. Have any of the movies ever actually referred to her as such? ENDGAME sure didn't.

I saw this for the first time over the weekend - I usually see the Marvel movies opening weekend, but work had other plans for me!  I canít believe I managed to avoid spoilers, but I am glad I did!

At times emotional and exciting, this was quite an experience.  I watched INFINITY WAR just before and then caught an IMAX show.  A big benefit to this screening was that I had avoided the new SPIDER-MAN trailer, which they showed after the film. 

Itís the end of an era, and yet I love the seeds they have planted to continue the universe.

During the interrogation scene at the beginning of THE AVENGERS, the Russian thug ridicules her with it (in Russian), since she initially didn't seem dangerous to him at all.  

"The famous Black Widow, and she turns out to be just another pretty face."

In AGE OF ULTRON during the attempts to lift Thor's
hammer, when the others expect her to take a turn someone
says "Widow?".

I remember in HOMECOMING Flash saying "Yeah, and I'm dating Black Widow" as a response to Peter saying he was friends with Spider-Man.

Re: Widow name

On AoS, Patton Oswalt's character tells Daisy that the online Quake/Black Widow pairing is called "Quack," which I thought was pretty funny.
