Superheroes: You keep getting older, and they stay the same. Or do they? Join us as we explore how the Marvel Cinematic Universe remained cohesive while giving its main characters three very different kinds of narratives. We'll also see how these narratives correspond to 3 different philosophies on history.

Hey everyone. A quick correction. The adjective "linear" to describe the work of Marx and Hegel isn't quite right - they both view history as dialectical, which involves a lot of back and forth. But they both, as the video mentions, imagine an overall progress towards an endpoint.

Wisecrack Just to be an irritating pedant: Captain America doesn’t share a worldview with the “author” of Ecclesiasties, but the speaker, who is referred to by the author as the “Kohelet” which I’ve seen translated as “Teacher.”

This is the key to understanding how Ecclesiastes made it into the bible - the author is not the speaker, and does not necessarily agree with the speaker, but believes the speaker’s words need to be heard

The way I see it, Endgame is a movie that kinds highlights on the trajectory our main characters need to go. Whether it's linear, and criss cross, all our characters need to "bull's eye to their goal, or end point. Just to be clear, all this information isn't personally from me.

The way these MCU movies have been shown is also historic in their placement and progression as the characters. Starting off with the core characters (Cap, IronMan, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow) they started off everything and made it clear that what you have to live up to be a hero to everyone there in the MCU. Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Capt. Marvel all have a lot to live up to. I think that for them to get to the status of the original Trinity, they have to be true to their characters, not copies of the others. It might be difficult to choose which Marvel characters they choose to come to the forefront, but hopefully they will do a good job. All I know is that the 22 films that lead up to Endgame is a true Gestalt-like roller coaster of a ride that I may NEVER be on again. Watching Endgame was like seeing E.T. for the 1st time or some other historic movie moment. Others may not want to put Endgame in that category because of the subject matter. But I can't help the fact that my bias is so great after watching what I thought was one of the best movies I've seen since The Empire Strikes Back.

Hey Wisecrack,
Here is a suggestion for a next video: The Lego Movie Part 2.
WAIT WAIT. Hear me out. I was watching it (and kind of regretting it as well) when I realised that the film might have some really good themes like growing up and acceptance. This line from Emmet especially stuck with me: "It is easy to harden the heart but the hardest thing is to open it." (it might not be exact, sorry).
I'm just wondering what the Wisecrack team can make of this, possibly make a Deep or Dumb video or at least (please!) reply to this comment.

I can't think of too many things I've seen (aside from Serenity [Firefly]) which left me more upset with the ending than that show about dragons and ice zombies you casually dissed at the end. 🤣

Which hero represents the Foucaudian conception of history?

2 days ago

Your point about the inevitability of the Accords was voiced by Tony himself, in the civil war comics. He was speaking to Peter Parker, iirc and he says they either take the chance to register now or it's forced on them in the future. The movie takes a much more personal guilt-ridden approach to Tony's reasoning from the onset.

2 days ago

Tony is described as a Futurist and Robert Downey Jr. has an album called "The Futurist". Coincidence? I think not.

"And while it didn't go the way we predicted after Infinity War." Yep, it was definitely pretty disappointing in a bit too many ways despite some really well done moments (the final thanos battle, scott lang's travel through the aftermath of the snap, and basically everything b4 the time heist, and stuff after until that horrible captain america ending).

You should do a deep or dumb video on Steve Rogers' philosophy. Why are his own sentiments always more important than rational action? How does refusal to sacrifice Vision make any sense while Cap tried to sacrifice himself in first two movies when it was entirely unnecessary? And so on.

DrZZZee He doesn’t want to kill someone for a common good he just wants to try to stop Thanos without doing so. He’s willing to be the only one to die for everyone because he cares about others well being in life rather than just his. He’s the leader as well so he feels to be the one to make the decision. But since Tony sacrificed himself it gives him relief to actually live the life he deserved to live and takes tony word in “getting a life”.

The philosophy of Zetman

To elaborate: It is Cap who personifies libertarianism the most. He is a principled individualist, against utilitarianism (not trading lives for the greater good), not cheating for short cuts etc.. To be a libertarian doesn't mean you cannot selfsacrifice, this depends on your personal values. Though what you cannot do if you are a libertarian is enforcing the Sakovia Accords, doing what Tony did in Age of Ultron, trading lives against against the will of the people concerned etc.. Libertarianism is based on the basic idea of the NAP -> Non agression principle.

I thought the movie was terrible. Especially because of the way they ended Iron Man, Cap, and Thor's stories. It's so disappointing, and I'm not looking forward to future mcu movies after they ended 11 years so badly.

Even though I really loved it personally, I’d really like to see a “What Went Wrong” on the Defenders, maybe even in comparison to the overall success of Infinity War and Endgame (not to be a copy of the Justice League video, but it’s hard to not compare the Defenders with IW).
