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 how do you watch movies and retain the critical assessments? Do you start by watching once as yourselves and then a second time with notepads?
Especially movies that are in cinemas

I thought Endgame was hot garbage. Deus Ex Machina ever 10 minutes, lazy time travel solutions and fan service circle jerks.

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.

Do Not Ever, Ever compare something with Pelenor Fields.

Hey Jared you are wrong about Captain America. His arc was learning that fighting isn't always the answer. The pivotal scene was when he stepped into the elevator with Hydra and looked all them boys in the eye and said "Hail Hydra". He was able to accomplish his goal of getting the sceptre and avoid a confrontation. Something Captain America would have never done when he first woke up. It's a nod to the elevator scene in winter soldier. Everyone in the theater including myself thought cap was going to fight an elevator full of Hydra Nazis again, but he grew as a person and learned to manipulate and be more covert to accomplish his goal not just use of brute force.

Pelenorfields still have the most epic battle speech

*Me*: I always related to thor somehow, despite not being a thunder god.

*Jared*: Thor's arc is cyclical, he's on top on the world, then brought back down to learn the same lessons...

*Me, an expert of tripping into the same stone, and constantly swinging between financial and emotional stability and instability*: ohhh boy this gonna be a fun one

This movie sucked such a big build up with a small finish now I know what a woman feels like when she sees a guy who is 6 foot seven wears 17 size shoes and then get it to bed with him lol

14:39 Wisecrack has a massive hate-boner for Ayn Rand, since they're a bunch of Statists who can't handle individualism and the idea of having to work to get anything.

Wait what the fuck happened to sharon carter did she die she would of definitely been at Tonys funeral

Wait, what idiot said that human nature and moral standards stay the same throughout history? Is that man delusional?

Almost? as lucrative as avatar? Guess this video came before the rerelease of endgame.

Every time I see about Captain America's philosophy and ethics, it gets me a tad choked up. It seems he has this altruistic, for the better good of humanity mentality, and it's truly admirable.

6 days ago

Sure, but he does have arc Wisecrack is wrong about that.
That elevator scene and Cap vs Cap bit is indicative how far he's come and changed.

I’ve been looking for this video for like the longest time, I just went on a frustrating search just to find it again Jesus

Couldn't disagree more about your opinion of captain America - the character has a clear arc.

1 week ago

Thor's arc is about self acceptance
Captain America's arc is about integrity
Iron Man's arc is about empathy

Man why do you have to do Loki like that?

Are we just ignoring the fact that Captain America got down with his own great niece sharon cater? I guess it is classic America though

While i definitely agree that steve rogwrs Definitely embodies the eternal facts of life itself, the way you described his characterization is dead wrong in my opinion. Cap's arc isn't unchanging. He's not just a changeless man. He's a man that goes through several arcs. From bring a devoted patriot who truly believes in the core values of his country, to a more self-dependant rebel who'd do anything to KEEP the values of his country alive. He's still a patriot, just not a strictly straight forward one we think one. Cap isn't changing. He's adapting to a much more darker, more complex world than he knew. He's basically what the younger generation want from a older generation. Or need. To keep the old core values of society but without the beggage of clinging to the unnecessary bullshit of being blind to the future. So yes, while cap Definitely is a representative of eternal values, he's not unchanged. He definitely goes through several arcs that are just as compelling as other characters.

I hate every single one of their stupid arcs, except tony I just dislike his arc, fuck cap, that disguisting human that refuses to change and will even hinder any objective that seeks to change the world, even if it is for the betterment of said world. He is not a hero, he is just a guy in a suit that likes to think he is a hero. seriously, fuck cap.

So to gain insight and grow people will inevitably end up being opposite different from how they started about their ambitions about people and places and reasons and relationships thus completing a time cycle. Yea, it checks out, much like my stay at * places with * people. See ya.

FYI Thor even states in endgame that "the only thing that is permanent is in-permanence" verifying your theory. well done

I've always liked the character of captain America the most, probably because I identify myself with him.

You know it’s funny when I look at captain America and his character it reminds me of talion from shadow of middle earth series and what I mean by this is that both men are people who fight for a greater good but unlike cap talion let the darkness or this “change of the times.” And become something different than the man he was before

Just struck me as incredibly weird but that’s just me

Everyone who signed the Sokovia Accords is either dead or crippled now. I think that’s intentional...

Protip: Captain America is not just a "random exception" to the idea that characters need arcs to be interesting, he's a refutation of that idea.


That line about "We change the world, the world doesn't change us" perfectly illustrates the appeal of characters like Cap, who possess a "flat arc".
