As everyone awaits their next fix from the Marvel Cinematic Universe with next month's Spider-Man: Far From Home, the good folks over at Screen Junkies have taken it upon themselves to distill the entire MCU into one Honest Trailer. They've analyzed the trends, pointed out the similarities, and now they're ruining the way you watch Marvel movies forever because you won't help but notice the copious leg scissor kicks or dual weapon wielding.
Perhaps the most interesting point they raise is the comparison with the phases of a band, with Phase One being "The Conventional Pop Songs Phase," Phase Two being "The Boundary Pushing Experimental Phase," and Phase Three being "Woo! I Can Do No Wrong! I'm a Golden God Phase." This of course means that Phase Four will "find the MCU puking in the gutter, wondering where it all went wrong." It's an apt comparison and with the lack of anything announced beyond Far From Home, it does lend some credence to this theory.
By the way, Homecoming, Far From Home... What's the next one going to be called, Trying to Get Back Home? Home Again? Home Turf? Home on the Range? Home is Where the Heart Is? Home Stretch? Till the Cows Come Home? Bringing Home the Bacon? We'll probably find out at SDCC, also next month.
