The brilliance of Marvel

May 01, 2019 04:53PM
a couple other things that seperate Marvel from the pack

I'm just gonna list it under marketing , although technically it's probably not

how do you maintain a high level of excitement in between films ?

months can go by in between films

how to strategically , accidently let a rumor that may or may not be true get leaked to the public , you know Marvel has an entire team who do nothing else but monitor internet chatter , and when that chatter starts to slow down and gets to a certain point, well guess what

whoops............ , another rumer accidently gets leaked to the public , like last month , the rumor got out that Angelina Jolie will be staring in the new Eternals movie , and whamo , internet chatter for Marvel movies spikes again

although , now we have Endgame in the theatres , and then in July will have Spider-man , so the chatter will remain high through most of the Summer , but there will come a time in the Fall when the chatter will start to slow down , so what does Marvel do , opps , another rumor just got leaked

Marvel knows exactly when , and how much to accidentally leak to the public to keep the interest up all year long

and the other thing...................

Easter Eggs

all their films are full of Easter eggs ,

I've been reading that just the movie Endgame alone has around a hundred Easter eggs in it

some are easy to find like Stan Lee's cameo , even the general Marvel Movie fan knows Stan Lee is going to be in there somewhere , you just have to look for him

Some Easter eggs are almost impossible to find , even to the most dedicated comic book reader

and then there are several in between

If I even catch 10% of the easter eggs , I consider it pretty good job on my part.....................lol

and alot of those Easter eggs can be kinda tricky

what appears to be a simple little Easter egg . could lead to something big in future movies

and , or...............

what could appear as a large important Easter egg , might go nowhere at all

just the writers having some fun for those fans who actually read the comic books

even those fans who have watched all 22 films will miss most the Easter eggs , unless they read the comics as well

most of the Easter eggs in these films are for those who read the comics , and will go unnoticed to those who dont

some easter eggs can be simple as maybe the numbers of a street address , or a last name on a piece of paper , or a name on the side of a moving van that is only on screen for a half a second , some people will figure what the name on the side of that van refers to , but most will never notice

so here's my point , how do you keep fan interest high with Easter eggs , even months after to movie has come and gone from the theater


here's just one , small , 2 second Easter egg , most people will never notice

There is one scene in Endgame , it's one of those small scenes thats just a part of another small scene

takes place in the first part of the movie where Black Widow is talking to Okoye from Wikanda , and Okoyo mentions that there had been some Earthquake activity under the oceans floor

that entire scene last like maybe two seconds , of a three hour film

so I'll ask you , or anyone else who reads this , what is the significant of that two second scene

the general movie goer , and even those who have seen all 22 movies , probably won't give it a second thought , considering when that scene takes place during the movie


for those who do read the comics , they'll be talking about that 2 second scene for the next year.....................lol

Marvel knows how to keep people talking about thier movies long after the movie has left the theater, with out hardly doing a thing

and that was just one easter egg I mentioned , the movie was full of them , Marvel fans will have plenty to talk about till the next movie comes out
