He weighed 280 at the start of filming Black Widow and recently got back down to his more normal weight of 220.

He must have been taking ALL the steroids and/or HGH to play Hellboy

I think that was a combo of prosthetics and VFX, like Vision, Hulk, et al.

So, I could have either spent $56 dollars for two people to see it once or $29.99 to watch it as many times as I'd like, and we've already watched it 3 times.

I'm so used to watching these kinds of movies at home and have come to enjoy it more than theaters, especially when there people that just can't put down their ****ing phones.
While it makes sense with the explanation you outline, it is actually different here. I saw the movie in DX at the theater for $8.50 with no cost for parking. I'm not a big fan of popcorn and watered down drinks so I pass on those.

One thing I agree on...I would love to be able to smash the phones for people who think the rules about "no cell phones " don't apply to them.

I think he probably lost the weight for the new season of Stranger Things, if you remember where his character left off.

In the same place his other character was rescued from.

Which reminds me of my only gripe about the movie, and it's a slight one. I thought Black Widow was supposed to be much older than the impression I got from this movie. I didn't think she was supposed to be a child in 1995 when they were undercover in Ohio.

Yeah, it was implied in the first Avengers that she was around and aware during the fall of the USSR. I suppose she could have been like, 5 years old when it fell, but she definitely would have been younger than I thought.

Didn't Cosmic Red Skull in Endgame say she was born in 1984?

Her age has now been retconned. I just checked the MCU wiki: https://marvelcinematicuniverse.fand...ki/Black_Widow

...and it has her as being born on 12/03/84.

If you look on wikipedia you'll find this: "...the character debuted in Tales of Suspense #52 (April 1964)." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_...tasha_Romanova)

The version of her character that I like is her as a child of a crumbling, war torn Europe who grew into an elite Soviet agent.

They definitely made a reference to that in the original Avengers, but the line was vague enough it could now be argued that she saw the Soviet Union crumble at as a small child.

I understand why they do stuff like this to make the character fit into a modern story. They froze Cap to get around it. The other guys made Wonder Woman live through it all, and just ignore Batman's history. The original Black Widow is a better character to me though.

I want to say I was also imagining her in kind of a Soviet era espionage situation when she talked about getting shot by the Winter Soldier.

The casting is fantastic as usual. ScarJo was great, Rachel Weisz was really convincing (sheís always so good but I havenít seen her in a role quite like this), Florence Pugh was very good but David Harbour stole all of his scenes. Just really great all around, including the great Ray Winstone.

I canít really compare it to any of the other Marvel films. At times, it felt like a later Mission Impossible film due to the editing and music but it was so much ďsmallerĒ in scope, which really served it well.

Iím looking forward to watching it again and definitely stick around for the end credit scene.
I loved it. I'll probably go see it once more in theaters. That first like 20 min I was thinking damn this is dark. Only gripe is I wanted more Taskmaster but thought it was great. I am very much looking forward to more Yelena.
