Today in Movie Culture: How to Make the MCU’s Avengers-inspired Ice Cream Flavors, Kelly Clarkson’s ‘UglyDolls’ Music Video and More

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:

 

Movie Food of the Day:

Before going to see Avengers: Endgame (or after, or both), you likely caught up with or revisited Avengers: Infinity War. Did you come away wishing the fictional Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors from the movie were real? Well, thanks to the latest edition of Binging with Babish, you can learn how to make your own batches of “Stark-raving Hazelnuts” and “A Hunka Hulk of Burning Fudge” along with the additional made-up “Raspberry Thor-bet”:

 

Easter Eggs of the Day:

We’re one week into the release of Avengers: Endgame, and you may still be looking out for things you missed the first, second or seventh time seeing the movie. Here’s another video highlighting Easter eggs, references, tie-ins and other details, this one courtesy of Insider, who are nice enough to tell us ahead of time that their count is at 31 items:

 

Character History of the Day:

In honor of his significance in Avengers: Endgame, many fans are paying tribute to the character arc of Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Burger Fiction goes the extra measure in this video, showing the evolution of Iron Man throughout his appearances on the big and small screens, including the new movie:

 

Custom Build of the Day:

Speaking of Iron Man and Avengers: Endgame, James Hobson, a.k.a. “the Hacksmith," takes on the superhero in his latest prop replica project. He created an Iron Man helmet that seems so authentic (pre-paint) that you can close the mask and then see in front of you via computer display, including infrared vision. Watch the making of this awesome replica here:

 

Cosplay of the Day:

We don’t see enough Rocket cosplay, even with the release of a big Marvel movie he’s a part of, like Avengers: Endgame. Maybe it’s because he’s a raccoon? Well, we found one to share, courtesy of Guardians of the Galaxy fan Jason Johnson, who shows off his furry costume and a cool accessory here:

 

Prank of the Day:

Can buildings cosplay? If so, MIT’s Great Dome got to cosplay as Captain America’s shield in anticipation of the release of Avengers: Endgame. Students at the university calling themselves “hackers” but otherwise remaining anonymous draped a circular red, white and blue tarp modeled after the famous Marvel weapon atop the building. Here’s a drone-captured video showcasing the prank for optimal appreciation (via Geekologie):

 

Fan Art of the Day:

Speaking of artists taking inspiration from Avengers: Endgame and doing beautiful things with it, an illustrator named Takumi created portraits of the heroes and villain of the movie in the Japanese style of art known as Ukiyo-e. Of course, this version of Hawkeye isn’t too far off from his Ronin alter ego in Endgame (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Dream Crossover of the Day:

Captain Marvel is so great, she stars in two movies in theaters right now — Avengers: Endgame and her own eponymous solo origin feature, Captain Marvel. Meanwhile, another movie out right now, DC’s Shazam!, is about a superhero who used to be called Captain Marvel. What if both of them ever shared the screen and had to fight? Stryder HD considers who would win if Captain Marvel and Shazam battled on the big screen:

 

Actor in the Spotlight:

In honor of the new Charlize Theron movie Long Shot hitting theaters this weekend, IMDb looks at the varied filmography of the Oscar-winning actress but then highlights the roles she didn’t play. Did you know Theron was in the running for lead parts in Titanic, Showgirls and Legally Blonde? Watch this video for more missed opportunities, including Captain Marvel:

 

Music Video of the Day:

UglyDolls is also in theaters this weekend, and one of the big highlights of the animated feature is the soundtrack filled with original songs by the voice cast of the movie, including Kelly Clarkson. Here’s her official music video for the song “Broken & Beautiful,” which she performs in the new movie as the lead character, Moxy:
