Review – Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

by Kevin Muller

It’s hard to believe that the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, is celebrating ten years. Throughout these films, we’ve seen many memorable moments, including when Iron Man first emerged, in the prototype of what his suit would become, to the God of thunder, Thor, wielding his hammer in a battle with Hulk, that made the green guy become helpless and, of course, when the original Avengers first came together. It has been one hell of a ride.
