What is the demographic that is liking these? Kids? Sometimes I see in photos of the lines grown men too though? Are they just bringing their kids?
Hello. My name is Ben, and I love the MCU. I'm 40 years old, recently married my long-time partner, no kids (and never will be).
From what I can tell just reading things here and in general, I think it's just that I'm a very forgiving movie fan. I like all types of movies. I can't really explain why I like things. I just try to go into something fresh, with an open mind, and let it do its thing. Just briefly on the MCU, I appreciate the world they built and how vast and interconnected it is. I think they did an amazing job casting the vast majority of the roles, especially RDJ, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Tom Holland. I just have a lot of fun watching them, and I don't feel guilty for it. For more detail on why I love them, see Kevin Smith's reviews. I pretty much align with his sentiments.
To illustrate that I like all types of movies, here a few movies I love and own: Everything Hitchcock has directed that can be owned on disc, Blade Runner 2049, Ninotchka, Bad Day at Black Rock, Hot Rod, To Kill a Mockingbird, Pieces....I could go on, but you get it.
But yeah, I will see Joker eventually. Likely via Redbox when it comes out. I will do my best to know as little as possible before seeing it. So far, I just know it's violent and basically about a descent (or ascent???) into madness. I hope I enjoy it, as I do any movie I watch.
