Long time no see! A crazy theory about the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ sequel

If there's anything that can get me out of my writing slump (for now), it's Avengers: Infinity War -- the culmination of all we've been waiting for since we first saw Thanos six years ago -- which I just watched today.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ review: The biggest surprise of the year

Marvel's space opera about a ragtag group of aliens plus one human is the massive surprise hit of the summer, and even gone on to be the highest-grossing movie of the year in the U.S., beating stalwart franchises like Transformers, X-Men and Spider-Man.
