Things We Saw Today: Guess These Marvel Characters’ New Year’s Resolutions

Marvel posted some unsigned New Year’s resolutions on behalf of their superheroes (and villains). Can you figure out who’s resolved to do what?

Here’re the resolutions:

I’m Going to be the Mental Organism Designed Only for Kindness! Maybe.

My whole life is one giant failed New Years Resolution. Go away.

In 2018, I want to get bitten by a radioactive rich person.

I want to embiggen my time helping those in need!

You can check out the Twitter thread once you’ve made your guesses to see who fans have decided the resolutions belong to, or visit our comment section, since our readers will be quick to figure these out. As for the entire cast of characters involved in Avengers: Infinity War, I have a resolution for them all: stay alive to see 2019, please.

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi stayed in first place at the box office over the New Years long weekend, though Jumanji was nipping at its heels. Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose, Luke, Leia & co. have cooked up more than $500 million domestically. (via Variety)
  • Here’s the trailer for the dark comedy The End of the F*ing World, which will debut on Netflix on January 5th, and has pretty damned weird and intriguing premise: “A comedy series about a psychopathic boy, James, and his quest to kill a new girl he made friends with named Alyssa.” (via CinemaBlend)
  • Barack Obama’s favorite songs of 2017. Come back to us, Barack Obama. (via Refinery29)
