Are we really not talking about this flinch?
Flash Thompson’s father, canonically, is an abusive drunk.
Are we really not talking about this flinch
Notice how he automatically acts submissive and looks at the ground after and not at Peter.
I guarantee none of these things were thought out during the making of this movie.
He’s flinching because Peter made a move that looked like he was going to slam a basketball into his head!
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’d flinch because of a ball being slammed in my face, not my past.
Fuck this website and its need to find deep meaning in EVERYTHING
How Marvel ends their movies:
How DC ends their movies:
see marvel fans, i can make bullshit too
actors who completely understand the characters they play and defend them to dumbass interviewers deserve the world and have my heart tbh.
"Is Superman cool?"
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
