"Prima Nocta" And That Mid-Credit Frown In The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Movie


Consider this a sequel to one of the most popular posts on Bleeding Cool, "Mewling Quim" And That Mid-Credit Smile In The Avengers Movie.

Well, in the Avengers: Age Of Ultron the sexual language of concern revolved around Tony Stark, his ability to lift Thor's hammer and his statement that, if he could wield the hammer and become ruler of all, he would enact "prima nocta".

For those unaware, that's the apocryphal right for a European ruler to have the right to bed any bride on her wedding night. Or, as Mel Brooks once put it, "it's good to be the king."

Sadly, it never happened, not in Europe anyway, It was an idea created by the French to attack other times and cultures as being barbaric, known as droit du seigneur. Although, like a number of satires, it had the unfortunate consequence of being adopted as the real thing in other pockers around the world.

Nevertheless,what  if Tony Stark were to enact such a law? Well that's just one more reason why he is unworthy to pick up the hammer.

Because Tony Stark is a repeat misogynist. This is just another line that reveals this.

Oh and the mid-credit frown? (highlight to reveal spoilers, just as before…) Thanos again, same guy as before, fed up of the inability of people to deliver him the Infinity Stones he desires for his Infinity Gauntlet….

"Fine I'll do it myself…"

He will as well…
