Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed In Phase 3 Of The MCU

Vote up the details you never noticed before.

With eleven films and billions of dollars at the box office, Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a towering success, to say the least. But it isn't just the epic heroics or sweeping storylines that made it happen. Little details, especially those pertaining to weapons and combat, create an overall experience that makes these movies so special. Just ask some of their biggest fans. For example, in Captain America: Civil War, if you look closely at the wrist of Tony's Mark 46 Iron Man suit, you'll see that it actually has a tiny arc reactor in it. Other details are more about the fights themselves. In Avengers: Endgame, when Thor attacks Thanos he always goes for the head-- a valuable lesson he learned earlier in Infinity War. There are even examples that come and go in the blink of an eye. When Doctor Strange faces off with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, he actually gets the soul knocked out of him briefly by the Soul Stone.

Check out this list of weapon and combat details fans spotted in Phase 3 MCU movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Weapon Choices Reflect Desires In 'Black Panther'

    From Redditor u/Azelic:

    In the fight for the throne in Black Panther, Killmonger chose to fight with a spear and a sword whereas T’Challa fought with a spear and a shield. This symbolizes Killmonger’s imperialistic goals vs T’Challa’s “fight when necessary.”

    Tony Switches To A Wakandan Shield In 'Endgame'

    From Redditor u/pwn3dbyth3n00b:

    In Infinity War, Thanos uses the power stone against Tony Stark. Tony uses a nanotech shield to block the blast, depleting the nanobots in Tony's suit leaving the suit vulnerable to being stabbed soon after. In Endgame, Tony upgrades to Wakandan holoshields to avoid compromising the suit again.
