Marvel Movies

Postby Lady Arianrod » Thu May 23, 2019 10:41 pm

Hello, everyone! I haven't created an entertainment thread in a long time, but I was just curious if anyone else was following the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Do you have a favorite MCU film? How do you feel about the franchise as a whole?

Personally, I have enjoyed most of the Marvel movies I've seen, although I'm most partial to Captain America and Ant-Man.

My favorite film in the series is probably the first Avengers movie, although I feel that most of them are entertaining.

I was in mourning after Endgame, since it's a somewhat mostly kinda new MCU after that, but I did enjoy the vast majority of them. I have to be "that guy" and say I thought Black Panther was solid but not "all that," and Thor Dark World and the Hulk reboot are certainly weaker entries. But I wouldn't say any of them were bad.

As far as my favourite, for me it's a toss-up between the first Avengers, Infinity War and The Winter Soldier (I love 70's conspiracy movies, which it was a conscious homage to). I really liked the first Iron Man, but since it was done before the MCU was the big blockbuster it is now, it kind of feels separated from it even though it establishes it.

I agree about The Dark World and Hulk. I did like them, but I didn't feel like they were as strong as some of the other entries. Black Panther was good, but it wasn't one of my top films either.

Winter Soldier was a good one. I enjoyed the action and the intrigue as well.

Iron Man (the original) was an excellent way to start off the MCU. It really defined a new era in comic book films.

I am looking forward to the new movies, but I feel like Infinity War and Endgame were a good final chapter for the current "phase". SPOILER: Highlight text to read: I will miss all of the characters who died in Endgame, though. :sniffle:

I spoilerized your post, just in case.

Black Panther is objectively the best Marvel movie because Killmonger isn't even wrong, he's 100% correct (even if his methods go too far in the opposite direction).

I will however allow Winter Soldier answers because I haven't seen it yet but I hear it's fantastic.

You'll definitely want to watch Winter Soldier before Endgame because several scenes directly reference it, and some people who disappeared in it return in Endgame (trying not to spoil anything).

I loved the end of endgame. I mean, I knew it was coming, (memes spoil everything) but I still loved it.

Of series within the MCU, Iron Man is probably the cake winner for me, though Captain America is a very close second.
Of individual films, I'll sell out to my favourite hero and say Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best one.

Thinking about that... I would probably have to agree that the MCU feels very different than it did at the beginning of the series. I wonder what it would feel like if I were to watch the whole... What... 15-20 movies back to back.
