The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a major success by smashing through box-office records around the world, with Avengers: Endgame cultivating multiple storylines and converging them for one epic end of a saga. However, there is a major issue in society today that Marvel not only included in Avengers: Endgame, but they even made a joke of the entire problem, male depression. This brings me to the character that was used to make the jokes and the actor who I would assume either did not care what was being done or was unaware of him making a joke of a serious problem.
In the last decade the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a force more powerful than the Infinity Stones themselves. They have smashed box office records and created perhaps the most complex film franchise in history. But Marvel comic book readers have been waiting this whole time for some of the missing heroes to assemble within the MCU. The most prominent of these characters being the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Now Disney have purchased 20th Century Fox, it has opened the doors for these characters to finally arrive and join the other heroes and villains on the big screen.
2019 had some pretty epic and highly anticipated films all come out one after another, and for many Detective Pikachu was a surprise box office hit. Now that is not me saying I was expecting the film to flop, but the general consensus was concerned to say the least. As historically any films adapted from video games tend to meet a massive backlash that would make even the toughest game avatar fall to a one hit KO. But, Detective Pikachu did the unthinkable and created a movie that pretty much everyone who has seen it has enjoyed.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 20 years, Pokémon is a franchise you will have heard of. You may not have played any of the games or watched an episode of the anime or played the trading card game. But chances are you still know the odd pocket monster, such as Pikachu or Eevee. However, there are now nearly 900 of these battle ready monsters for fans to enjoy, and each has their own typing within the games.
