On the Marvel movies: We’re the Good Guys, Right?
Daniel Immerwahr über den Konservatismus moderner Superhelden-Filme: https://nplusonemag.com/online-only/online-only/were-the-good-guys-right/
“It’s really great to know that they’re out there, watching over us,” a civilian gushes in the first Avengers film. It’s a rare moment, because a thing that is striking about the films is how rarely ordinary people speak. They scream, cower, and flee, but rarely do they have anything useful to say. They’re there to be protected, perhaps occasionally to gape in admiration at the Avengers.

Whenever they form a government, though, it proves feckless or worse. The “World Security Council,” a thinly veiled version of the UN’s Security Council, is so unprepared for an alien invasion that throws up its hands and fires a nuclear missile at Manhattan (whereas the Avengers defeat the aliens and save New York). The most prominent elected politician in the Marvel films is Senator Stern, played with oily perfection by the late Garry Shandling. Stern tries to get Tony Stark to relinquish his suit, which seems a reasonable request. Yet Stern is quickly undermined, first by the revelation that he’s corrupt, then by the revelation that he’s a deep-state HYDRA agent hoping to kill millions and bring about a New World Order. In this, he’s in good company. Half the public officials in the Marvel films are secretly working for HYDRA. The Avengers dislike HYDRA, but not out of any sympathy for public governance. “I don’t care about the liberal agenda anymore,” declares Tony Stark. “It’s boring.”

There are societies that function in the Marvel Universe, but they aren’t liberal democracies. They’re Wakanda and Asgard, dynastic monarchies run by Black Panther’s family and Thor’s, respectively. Despite the progressive racial politics of Black Panther, it is ultimately a movie about a king who fights off another male heir to the throne. Howard University historian Daryl Scott has described Wakanda as a “conservative utopia,” a strong state protected by a charismatic aristocrat. The same could be said of Asgard. Thor initially mumbles something about refusing the throne, but at the end of the third film, he takes it.

In Ant-Man, the benevolent scientist Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, offers what is perhaps the purest distillation of the Marvel philosophy. “You can’t destroy power,” he advises. “All you can do is make sure that it’s in the right hands.”

10 Thesen zu AVENGERS 3: INFINITY WAR - Kritik & Analyse

Ich teile nicht alle von Wolfangs Thesen (grade These 6 zum Villain fand ich recht schwach und zu These 9 – das Ende des Blockbuster-Kinos – hätte ich noch eine Menge zu sagen, Stichwort Polarisation zwischen Mega-Event-Kino und Indie-Festivals), aber alle Thesen sind mindestens interessant und als Kritik valide. Ich denke aber, der Film gefiel mir dennoch besser als Wolle.

„Das Blockbusterkino befindet sich in einer tiefen Krise, die vor allem eine künstlerische ist, denn finanziell läuft es für Disney bislang noch ganz gut (auch dank der immer höheren Ticketpreise). "Avengers 3: Infinity War" von Anthony und Joe Russo merkt man jedoch die Mühe, irgendwie ein Mega-Kinoevent zu produzieren, überdeutlich an.“
