Sofie got lucky, because a certain big blockbuster was released a little bit earlier in Denmark: Namely, the long anticipated Marvel film Iron Man 3, which marks the end of a trilogy... for now.
For the final installment of Analyzing the Avengers, Ursa takes a look at all the secondary and tertiary female characters that populate the Marvel Movie-verse. Why does Pepper wear those shoes? Who is Darcy written for? How does the narrative reward Dr. Foster for her career? And is Thor's wardrobe department awesome, or what?
He is Loki of Asgard, and he is burdened with a purpose so glorious that it supersedes showering. Ursa takes a look at the Internet's favorite demigod bad boy.
Oh, Clint, you so sassy. In this episode, Ursa chats about some aspects of Hawkeye's character in The Avengers, and then gets overexcited by the Hawkeye Initiative, and its sterling efforts in highlighting the ridiculousness of female poses in comics. Good job there, Agent Barton!
He's our awesome everyman who fights alongside the Avengers in a snappy suit. Today, Ursa takes on that most mild-mannered of badasses, Agent Phil Coulson, and discusses why Clark Gregg made Movieverse Coulson too adorable to live, along with sacrificial lambs, and death, destroyer of worlds.
Thor: God of Thunder. Prince of Asgard. KING OF CAPSLOCK. Kind of a prat. And capable of learning, growing, and inspiring little girls to dress up in armor and tutus.
How adorable is Steve Rogers? Very adorable. Ursa talks Captain America, leadership, and donzerly light. Though she may have got that last part wrong.
She's as broken and scarred as the rest of the Avengers, but it'll never prevent her from doing the right thing. Black Widow: She's Ursa's favorite Avenger. And now, she gets character development, and a plot arc to boot!
Ah, Tony Stark. How Ursa loves you, even if you're sometimes kind of a jerk. So much so that she's going to try and explain why. (Then again, she enjoyed Iron Man 2, so what does that tell you?)
In order to do a thorough study of the Hulk (and Bruce Banner), Ursa had to watch Ang Lee's Hulk and The Incredible Hulk starring Ed Norton and Liv Tyler. She hopes you appreciate the sacrifice. And yes, she still loves Mark Ruffalo's Bruce best.
Ursa turns the squee up to eleven and watches The Avengers. Or Marvel's The Avengers. Or Avengers Assemble. Oh, who cares what it's called? It's awesome! Fanboys and fangirls, assemble!
What better way to start off a new show than with Vivid's porn parody of the biggest film of the summer? Starring Dale DaBone as Iron Man, Brooklyn Lee as the Black Widow, ex-wrestler Chyna as She-Hulk, and many others, this is a movie that strangely enough includes way more Marvel characters than the actual Avengers movie.
