You Lose a Limb, Everyone Loses a Limb!
If you’ve watched every MCU film to hit theaters, then you’re probably wondering to yourself: what’s up with people losing limbs? It happened in Iron Man 3 when Adrian Killich’s arm gets chopped off by Tony. It happened again to Thor in The Dark World, and again in Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s only three examples of six examples!
When asked, Marvel’s head honcho, Kevin Feige, stated that every film in MCU’s Phase 2 involved someone losing a limb. It wasn’t that the filmmakers were sadistic folk, but they were paying homage to Star Wars. Of course, who could forget the infamous film series that made losing limbs a thing?
