Hamlette from Hamlette’s Soliloquy tagged me just the other day to do her very own Marvel Heroes Movie Tag, where we match a movie to marvel hero! Without further ado let’s just jump in!
Captain America: Name a movie with a “fish out of water” theme. One of my top ten favorites, Hot Fuzz! Highly ambitious London cop transferred to a small sleepy village in the countryside…but how sleepy is it really?
Thor: Name a movie about learning to use power for the good of others. Kiki’s Delivery Service. A young witch coming to age strikes out on her own with the purpose of growing into her powers and using them responsibly living in a civilian world.
Iron Man: Name a movie about an inventor. For some reason, I’m scrambling to think of a film, so I’m just gonna say A Beautiful Mind, which is about a brilliant mathematician. Great film with a great soundtrack.
Incredible Hulk: Name a movie with a main character who has two sides to them. Clue, for absolutely every single character in the entire thing. Its a masterpiece. XD
Hawkeye: Name a movie that involves archery. Hamelette already said The Many Adventures of Robin Hood, which is the best and most ultimate Robin Hood movie ever! But for the sake of something new, let’s say The Hunger Games.
Black Widow: Name a movie about spies. Spy with Melissa McCarthy. I’m sorry, but this movie actually really made me laugh! McCarthy is a great comedian!
Black Panther: Name a movie about royalty. Ben-Hur. The story of a royal Jewish family’s fall but also ultimate redemption. Honestly, its one of the best epics ever told on the big screen ever.
Vision: Name a movie involving androids or robots. The Iron Giant! Finally got around to seeing that movie and wow! Way better than expected! I can see why it is so highly thought of. Real Steel and The Terminator and Transformers could also go with this genre.
Spider-man: Name a movie about teens. Say Anything. Big favorite of mine because the two main teenagers depicted in this film actually feel real, with a depth of purpose and emotion to them that I just loved.
Ant-Man: Name a movie about thieves. Inception. Heck yes. Is there anything more whacky than stealing through shared dreaming?! Now You See Me and Die Hard also come to mind.
Scarlet Witch: Name a movie with powerful female character. Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi because PRINCESS LEIA. IS. THE. GIRL. Smart, quick-thinking, strong, diplomatic: one of the most powerful female characters ever.
Dr. Strange: Name a movie where a character learns to be a better person. The one that comes to mine is John Wayne’s Rio Bravo, my favorite western. Character Dude, played Dean Martin, follows an entire path of facing his problem with drink and learning how to take control over it and becoming a man again. Love that movie so much!
Falcon: Name a movie with a great sidekick. My Neighbor Totoro, because how is there any sidekick better than Totoro himself? Also, that movie makes me cry every time.
Loki: Name a movie with an antagonist/villain who steals the show. Let’s say Toy Story, where Woody basically plays the villain but completely steals the show as the main character!
Agent Coulson: Name a movie where an ordinary character faces an extraordinary situation. Shaun of the Dead! Shaun’s mundane world is slowly interrupted by the zombie apocalypse, and when he at last notices, he decides to take it all on to go rescue his mum and girlfriend. One of my favorite movies ever.
Peter Quill: Name a movie with a character who is more than they appear to be. Finding Nemo. This is referring to BOTH Nemo and Marlin!
Gamora: Name a movie with a character who changes allegiances. Thelma and Louise; we watch Thelma change from being shackled to toxicity and abuse to choosing her own form of personal freedom and herself. Freaking love it.
Drax: Name a movie with a physically powerful character. Rocky, of course!! Of course I love Rocky for so much more than his physique, but dang, he’s awesomely strong. Or, for the fun of it, we can also say the movie Rambo First Blood for this one as well.
Groot: Name a movie with a character who doesn’t talk much. Mad Max: Fury Road. Max says very very little the whole movie or something like that? Legit great facial/grunt acting from Tom Hardy in that film, he didn’t need to speak a whole movie to make us love his Max. ❤
Rocket: Name a movie with a talking animal. It was only for like 2 minutes, but there’s a talking animal in Men In Black–first film I thought of. XD
