Nice! I hope people won't be too wild with the spoilers.

Also my dad wants to watch it on a 3D+4D theatre, which we do have. The thing is he hasn't watched any of the previous Marvel movies as far as I remember and not even Infinity Wars so I don't know if he'll be able to enjoy it fully.
I don't wanna show off no more.
Play the saucy Swiss miss no more.

As for me personally I haven't watched Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Are they mandatory?

Minus the post credits scene of AM&W nah.

They're both pretty good though.

Apologies in advance for hijacking this topic (I hope you all believe that I'm not trolling), but I want to ask the MCU fans for their opinions.

Until recently, the only MCU movie I had seen was Black Panther, which I thought was fun in theaters but have had no desire to rewatch. A couple weeks ago, I watched the first Iron Man and honestly didn't care for it. A few years ago, I tried to sit through GotG and quit 20 minutes in, but in that film's defense, I was watching with hyperactive little cousins and not paying too much attention.

I know my sample size is pretty paltry, but would it be kiiiiiiinda reasonable at this point to just assume these movies aren't for me? My brother told me he really liked Infinity War despite only seeing a couple of the earlier films... but I'm too OCD about this stuff to do that. In order to reach Infinity War, I gotta watch all ~18 movies. I want to power through them, partly because they have become so culturally significant and partly so I don't skip something excellent, but considering comedy may be my least favorite genre (weird I know) and the MCU seems steeped in comedy, I may just hate the long ride.

Also, Hulk and Iron Man 2 would be next up, and everyone says those are the s***s

What kind of movies do you generally like? If you're a fan of fun action movies it's not hard to also enjoy the Marvel movies even if you're not that into their specific format.

Most people like the first Iron Man, but I honestly don't think it's that special. If you don't like comedy movies, then the Iron Man series (which heavily feature a snarky, sarcastic lead) and the GotG series (which is much more comedic than even the other MCU films) really won't fit your taste. I would try the Captain America movies instead and if you don't like them (Winter Soldier is amazing, imo) then maybe you can confirm that it's not for you.

I would probably advise against watching everything to catch up since that might burn you out of them. While you'll miss out on a lot of plot points, I think it would be better to cherry pick what you watch to find what you'll enjoy, and if you end up liking them then you can go back and watch others, hopefully being able to get into them more because of the connections to the other films. Might be a weird way to go through them, but I think that's better than forcing yourself to watch them and dropping the whole thing because of a weak entry.

Also, I read this wrong. I thought it said "everyone says those are s***", which I wouldn't really disagree with. I actually never watched Hulk (no one ever talks about it though), but Iron Man 2 was pretty disappointing.

Honestly, most anything, but I probably tune out and ignore comedies most of all. This is especially true for modern comedies that try to emulate "internet humor" and, for me at least, almost always fail.

Sorry, that is actually what I meant. From the bits and pieces I've picked up, Hulk and IM2 seem to be the least regarded. I think you're right that I may enjoy the Cap movies more; I've heard so many good things about Winter Soldier.
