So I’m not going to spoil anything but it’s interesting the comparison made.
I knew about the comics and what happened, plus I had watched every trailer. My wife doesn’t know anything about the comics and only knew of Thanos from the post-credit scenes previously. She, also, successfully managed to not see a single trailer at ALL of the this movie and went in with a completely fresh mind. She’s not one to get emotional during a movie, but in one particular instance, it happened. She gasped and I knew it hit her.
She doesn’t know of the slate of movies coming out but after the movie ended, she asked me immediately what they were simply because we had watched Guardians of the Galaxy a few nights before and was now genuinely curious.
I had to explain the post-credit scene to her though. I can’t wait for her to see that movie, because there’s some casting choices she has no clue about yet.
She loved the film and didn’t mind the risks taken. In fact, we had waged that no more than 2 people would eat it in the movie. We agreed on 1 of them.
Also, that theory you guys have, she had it too. I never put that together, to be honest.
