“Obviously, he [Montgomery Clift] was an amazing artist, but it does baffle me that so few people that I speak to even know who he is. You have to list off three or four credits before eventually you get to one, they go, ‘Oh, yeah, that guy.’ I think there’s something to that. I think that’s the kind of biopic you want to make, as an actor, in a way, because if you play someone where people have too many preconceived notions about someone, then it’s a lot of pressure. If it’s not going to really pay homage to Monty, and be a project that he would appreciate, then I don’t want to do it at all.” - Matt Bomer [X]
We were so totally cheated in Avengers. I mean, okay, I see the point from a narrative standpoint, I do. These are really different people and they’re diffident and mistrustful to begin with, and yes, if they’d all gotten along merrily from the start it wouldn’t have been super interesting and you do need the ‘all is lost’ moment in act 2 after Phil is murdered and then they rally — but I find the ~~mounting tension among the Avengers could’ve been dealt with differently?
Steve’s read Tony’s file. I’m sure Tony kept some things (ie,everything that happened in Afghanistan) very close to the chest, but still, Shield knows about Obadiah Stane. That should’ve been in the file. Steve would fucking recognize that Tony is Howard’s son, he would pick up on the mannerism, on the sarcasm, on the carefree, snarky attitude (Howard told Steve a radio transmitter had been tested more than him?? Like, seriously.).
Steve and Tony, canonically upon first meeting each other in the MCU, have absolutely no reason not to get along. You want to give them a reason to fight? Have Steve demand they confront Fury right away to prove Tony’s suspicions. Have Tony insist that stealth is their best option, tell him going head to head with Fury is a waste of time. They need proof Fury can’t confute. Tony wants to trust his tech — Steve wants to go in guns-a-blazing. They fight over the best approach to do the same thing. Steve goes and does the thing and finds Tessearct based WMD. Tony hitches his eyebrow at him, going, ”Wow the old man never mentioned what a fucking brilliant diplomat you were, this, this is brand new information, I need to recalibrate everything, Rogers, who knew,” and he is absolutely delighted.
And by the way we’ve also dropped the fact that Fury asked Thor to torture his brother? That thread never gets picked up again? How do the Avengers feel about that? What does Fury plan to do with Clint once they find him, at that point in the movie? You can have so much tension between Shield and the Avengers, which realize they have to band together because they are all treated like threats at that point, and that they can’t trust Shield, and they need to do things on their own.
It wouldn’t have taken much. It really wouldn’t have. The entire plotline could’ve stayed the same. Think about Steve talking to Tony after losing Coulson. Steve, who’s entirely too calm and controlled at that point, given that he’s had less than two weeks to adjust, to grieve. Have Steve mention Bucky. Have Tony ask Steve does it get any easier, because Tony doesn’t have a measure for war, he doesn’t know, and he’s grown up with stories of Captain America, the Super Soldier. Have Steve tell Tony it never gets better. It never goes away. Have them bond over the fact that they’re about to wade in another war and the don’t know if they’re going to survive.
Have Shield be more resistant of Clint. Show me Natasha breaking him out because she knows Clint is back to himself and trusts him. Show me the Avengers outdoing and outsmarting the system. Because that’s what they do and it breaks my heart because I do love the movie, I do, but it could’ve been so much better, and it did such a disservice to Clint and Steve and, I just.
We could’ve had it all.

I don’t want to be perceived as a threat.
I had helped George Lucas audition other actors for the principle parts, and with no expectation or indication that I might be considered for the part of Han, I was quite surprised when I was offered the part. My principle job at the time was carpentry, I had been under contract as an actor at Columbia and Universal. I had a house at the time I wanted to remodel, a bit of the wreck of a house. I’d invest money in tools but wouldn’t have money for materials, so I realized this was another way of putting food on the table. And allowing me to pick and choose from the acting jobs that were being offered at the time. [x]
MARY FUCKING SHELLEY. ’oh, i’m a nineteen year old female in a world where females are basically valued only as mothers, grieving over the loss of my child, disowned by my father, in dire financial straights, stuck in a country that’s not my own, ignored and cheated on by my husband, and belittled by my husband’s friends? how am i going to deal with this? WHY DON’T I COMPLETELY CHANGE THE RULES OF LITERATURE, MOTHERFUCKERS? AND WHILE I’M AT IT, I’LL SIMULTANEOUSLY INVENT AN ENTIRE NEW GENRE, AND WRITE THE FIRST NON-RELIGIOUS CREATION MYTH.’
There were ropes around my wrist
And the tide pulled at her hair
Pulling her away from me
And me away from there
