What kind of movies do you generally like?

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.

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.

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.

I would recommend giving Winter Soldier a try. If you don't like it then there's nothing else from the MCU I would recommend at that point.

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.

Homecoming is great and Ant-Man and the Wasp is a lot of fun imo, not mandatory but I would watch

Thanks. I mean I'd try to watch them eventually, but I don't have a lot of time or will to watch movies on week days usually and I'm only two days from watching Endgame. So if I can put them off til later, that's reassuring.

For Yo.

Before Infinity War I had seen

Iron Man 1-3
Captain America 1-3
Thor 3
Spiderman
Avengers 1 and 2

After watching it I saw both GotG because I enjoyed the characters in Infinity War.

I would say if you want to be quick ready for it. Watch the Captain America movies. Thor Ragnarok. And both Avengers. Though Age of Ultron is a slog for some.

Heads up - Premiere was last night, so there might be spoilers floating around. Be mindful with your browsing, go dark on social media to be sure

Not to mention that there was apparently a legit leak like last week too. Thankfully I managed to stay away from that.

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


It’s too late to power through them. If you wanted to do that you should have started a week ago. If you try to force it now you will burn out and hate the entire experience. Just forget about it for now. Come back to the whole thing later when you can tackle it at an easy pace.

Oh, I didn't mean I wanted to power through them to catch Endgame in theaters. I just wanna get through them in general while they're still a cultural juggernaut. I already missed the train with Game of Thrones.

Well, the movies should all be on the new Disney streaming service, so that’s probably going to be the most convenient way to watch them all.

For Yo:

Watch The Captain America movies. The first one is the worst of the 3, the second is the best Marvel film.

After that... if you liked Black Panther, then Doctor Strange might be a good choice. Otherwise, Avengers then Infinity War, probably (could watch Age of Ultron but it sucks)

Really, the "necessary" films to watch to feel fully in the MCU would be:

Avengers
Civil War
Infinity War

Other films are important, but you can catch the whole gist of the everything with those 3.
