This is a blog with an assortment of interests. DW and Sherlock (ahem, Cumbercookie right here) chief among them, but with a healthy sprinkling of anime (FAIRY TAIL IS MY HOME) some dose of Merlin, and, always, Harry Potter. Along with random items that are just too darn cute or funny to pass up. Just as a disclaimer, I am not the original author of any graphics, art, or gifs. I don't make the pretties, I reblog the pretties.

My name is Sherlock Holmes, and it is my business to know what other people don’t know.

We really need to talk about this scene a lot, because holy wow. The MCU movies have definitely been getting a little darker since the Avengers, but scenes like this? This is pure optimism. Tony is told he can save 4 out of 13, and then he saves all 13 of them anyway, because these people can work together and help Tony save them. 

If a similar scenario had happened in the Dark Knight Saga or Man of Steel, you know damn well 9 out of those 13 people would have been dead. Hell, Bruce or Clark would have been lucky to even save the 4, because DC movies have gone down a route of unrelenting grtty realism that makes good old super heroics virtually impossible. Bruce can’t save the city without faking his own death; Clark can’t save the world without becoming a murderer.

But even in the darkest hours of the Marvel Universe, Tony Stark can damn well save 13 people plummeting to their certain death. Is it realistic? Hell no. But it was an awesome victory that both Tony and the audience needed at this point in the story, and by god it was heroic.

Reblogging for those tags. Because yes. Heroic is doing the right thing because it’s the right thing, even when it’s impossibly hard.

This is one of my favorite scenes ever in the entire MCU and it’s because of the work that went into creating this scene. It was not just a shitload of CGI. They got the Red Bull skydiving team to do this insane jump. Their parachutes were built into these costumes that they wore which made them look like normal people who’d just been on the plane.

The making-of for this scene blew my fucking mind.

But yeah. All of the above is cool to think about, too. I just like the scene!

Also they gave a realistic explanation to fall back on which was pretty awesome too

I love that you can clearly see Evans go “SHIT” and Stan go “WOW” and Scarlett definitely reacts, but then plays it off like it’s no big deal.
