The Best Tweets: ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Emojis on Twitter

in Fandom tweets

Captain America: Civil War has finally arrived. It’s not like I can believe it. I still remember the moment I stepped out of my local theatre to watch Avengers: Age Of Ultron and all I could scream to my friends was “Can Civil War come already?”

Captain America


Well hell to the yes, it’s here — and the press tour from the cast is one of our favorite things that came out of it. What’s surprising is that Robert Downey Jr isn’t even the best part of it this time. From social shares and late night shows, it’s evident that the internet’s sweetheart right now is Sebastian Stan who is reprising his role as Bucky Barnes. We love him too. Way too much.

So, Marvel/Disney mega marketers put on their shiny armors once again and graced us with branded Twitter emoji’s for Civil Wars’ superheroes. These emojis which allegedly cost $1m (we’re wondering — each??!!) were a huge success with Bucky’s #TeamBucky emoji skyrocketing to the 1st position of trending topics worldwide on May 5th.

These are the emojis:

Let’s see what the internet had to say about Captain America: Civil War’s superheroes.

Aka honest gif.

Let’s start a petition for that one.


This is the best.


We adore this picture.


Steve + Bucky = LFF ?


We love Seb so much.


Credits to the artists. So very talented.






Perfect drawing omg.




Black Panther is KING GOALS. ?????




We’re still not over his film.






So good.


Now over to you.

Are you Team Cap or Team Iron-man? I’m personally Team Cap but I can see wherdiddly-sharinge Iron-man is coming from. I love how complicated the Marvel characters have turned out on screen. What did you think of the film? Is Buckynat happening? Let us know!

The Best Reaction Tweets: Melisandre Reveal in ‘Game Of Thrones’

in Fandom tweets

So this happened in Game Of Thrones. While most of us expected to see what would finally happen to Jon Snow (or how they would bring him back), we were exposed to what seems like a really old old old Melisandre.


Well we knew she was old. However we all assumed that she had it all figured out with her youthful look (thanks magic!). Turns out in this season, we see a very vulnerable Melisandre compared to…


Yeah that badass red sorceress. She’s losing faith to the Light and it shows. After failing with Stannis and after witnessing Snow’s corpse, she is left all alone without hope. We might have seen Melisandre naked before but that’s the actual naked of her.


*Kudos to the magnificent performance of Carice van Houten in the premiere episode of this season.


Well I for one have to say that she looks rather good for 400+ years old.

But with THAT kind of transformation, you can expect the internet to take care of things. And when I say things, I mean memes, long-fan-theories from Reddit users (our favorite) and of course tweets.

Here is our collection of some of the tweets that really stood out for Melisandre’s true form.


Genius, Game Of Thrones. Genius.


That’s our girl. #Melisandre







Feeling the mummy burnnnn.


Heya, Kreacher. What’s hangin?


Ain’t that the truth.


/lost for words




Queen Rebel Wilson.



You ruined it for everyone, HBO.


Now over to you.

There are SO SO many theories about Melisandre out there right now with the most popular one diddly-sharingbeing she’s going to be the one to save Jon Snow. We cannot wait until the next episode — though we have a feeling we won’t see Jon Snow with open eyes for at least a couple more episodes. What do you think? Let us know.
