Jim Starlin approves of The Avengers: Infinity War!
The creator of Thanos, Drax and Gamora took to his official Facebook page to offer his thoughts on the film.
“The Avengers the Infinity War! I really have to watch what I say here, so as to not spoil the many surprises this film holds (even for me). So let me stick with generalities, with a few specifics tossed in at the end, concerning Josh Brolin,” Starlin said. “Visually spectacular, as are all the Marvel movies. But this film hits emotional depths few of the others have even come close to, yet humor takes center stage at all the rights moments. There are a couple times my chest constricted from what I was seeing, making me want to cry. You’ll recognize those instances when you watch the film.”
Starlin continues with mention that Josh Brolin played the perfect MCU Mad Titan, and that like a lot of fans, needs to see it more than once.
“Brolin is an incredible Thanos, moving and emoting just as I tried to portray him in the comics,” Starlin said. “The movie’s two and a half running time shoots past nearly unnoticed. The thing is though, I feel I’m going to have to view the film a number of more times before I get a solid grip on just how good it is. Still at that rather stunned point.”
Starlin even gives The Avengers: Infinity War a whopping ten out of ten!
“Yes, I know my opinion should be considered a bit biased, because of my connection to the production but the Russos, Markus, McFeely and everyone else involved in this film get my heartfelt thanks for bringing everyone’s favorite Titan to life in the best way possible, in a jaw-droppingly awesome fashion. Ten out of ten thumbs up. BTW: a special thanks to Ryan Potter for all his help at the after party,” Starlin said.
