About the Film Series
Minor Spoilers
Character
Teamwork.
The Avengers was a long time coming. We had Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America and Thor movies. And we had Black Widow and Hawkeye appear in two of those films. All of those films are linked together and are part of the same series: the Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU for short. In essence, those movies were a prequel for setting up The Avengers.

So when it burst onto the scene, what did the fans think? It was a huge success, and it's not hard to see why – they are simply excellent. So let’s delve in why the team in the Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron and to an extend, Captain America: Civil War are awesome.
Quote Marvel are now experts on bringing our favourite heroes to the big screen. They have proven that since the first Iron Man in 2008. Getting the essence of a character working right in their separate movies is only one piece of the puzzle. What happens when you have multiple main characters sharing the same movie?

There is a reason why The Avengers was the first movie of it's kind – films like this can be risky. If the concept doesn’t work then the movie will be a jumbled mess. When all of these heroes are brought together, the important thing is for the cast and characters to have chemistry on screen together, first and foremost.

The Avengers has this in spades, either with the characters working with each other or in the rare instances when they are against each other. There is many examples of this throughout: Captain America and Iron Man at the farm, Black Widow and Hawkeye in the heli-carrier, Hulk and Thor battling together or Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch working as a team, all the characters work well in the scenes together. Everyone gets a chance to shine at some point, and that’s how this kind of team-up super hero movie should be. Some characters do have more a focus than others - Iron Man and Captain America spring to mind, but that is more for story reasons rather than alienating fans of certain characters.

Let’s face it, every good superhero movie needs action, and bringing together all these heroes would be for nothing if the action scenes weren't up to scratch. The Avengers faced some big battles in the comics, usually bigger than any of the single heroes combined. The villains in these movies plan something that even the most powerful of the heroes couldn't handle on their own…

… and it’s in this situation when the Avengers are all working as a unified team that things really shine. Both movies feature at least one big battle sequence. The films were all building to this, so it's something special to see up to nine superheroes battling on the screen together, unfolding in front of your very eyes.
[Avengers]The Avengers... have assembled! To take down any villain... "wait, is that Superman attacking Zod?"
Of course, there are smaller action scenes throughout also, but it's not like films like Man of Steel or the Transformers series where the combat seems to go on for maybe too long, or you may get lost in the middle of all the action. The action scenes are all choreographed really well, and there are moments that break up the action too, to make it easier to follow and enjoy. It further shows that Marvel knew what they were doing all along (like there was any real doubt), the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to Age of Ultron had a total of 11 movies. That's a long movie series, but somehow Marvel have managed to keep each film feel fresh and have many classic moments. Both Avengers movies have great team chemistry and great action scenes as I have already mentioned, but not just those, there's a lot of cool and funny moments between the members.

Due to Marvel’s track record, this probably doesn't come to much of a shock. There's so many fan favourite moments it's hard to choose. How about when Tony finally meets Loki? Or when Hulk and Thor share a moment to celebrate? Or what about that infamous line from Cap at the battle of New York? There's loads of moments like that keep both films feeling fresh and a pleasure to watch.

The two main villains, Loki and Ultron, have good moments too. They can be very witty and both were a perfect choice to go up against the Avengers. I quite like that both villains meet up and/or battle with all the Avengers at some point as well, which is quite good to see to see how they will react to a certain member.

Let’s not forget the best part of the film: Stan Lee! The Stan Lee! The masterful master behind the masterpieces of comics! He has played two great roles in both Avengers films. In the first film, he plays a grumpy old man called Stan Lee who scoffs at the idea of superheroes in New York. In the second film, he plays a grumpy old man called Stan Lee who thinks Thor is exaggerating how strong his special Asgardian drink is. He gives Stan a drink, and says Excelsior! Whatever that means, we will never know...


Closing Thoughts
Excellent Excellent
The Avengers have been a major part of comic book history for over five decades, and now the films are now part of comic book movie history. Although the members of the team have changed over the films, the goal always remained the same – to bring together a group of super people to fight for earth's freedom. That's exactly what we have. The Avengers is the success that all comic book fans deserved.

My One Big Highlight
Spiderman The moment at the end of the first Avengers where all they are all assembled as a team for the first time, you know the one. Cap gives the orders and it always sends shivers down my spine. It gets even better when cap turns around to Hulk and says the best line in the movie: "Hulk - Smash!" Awesome!
Elephant In the Room
elephantI wont lie, Age of Ultron isn't quite as good as the first movie, although in fairness it’s pretty close. The main reason is has scenes (specifically the dream sequences) that is really about setting up future movies. Doing this with little hints or mentions is fine. But whole scenes? Thankfully, this really only crops up in Age of Ultron and Marvel seem to have learnt their lesson.
[The Team]The Team are all prepared for battle. Who is your favourite?
When Avengers Assemble was released in 2012, it was a landmark moment. There is no denying that. This was the first time we have seen these characters together on the big screen. With more characters added to Age of Ultron, and expanded upon in Captain America: Civil War, the team is very strong. Since the Avengers is all about teamwork, I thought it would be good to go through each member see what they are like.
Iron Man
"Have you ever tried Shawarma? I don’t know what it is, but I wanna try it."
The billionaire tech genius who designed and created the Iron Man suit. Since that initial breakthrough, we've seen lots of upgrades to his suit to make it more powerful and useful. From needing a giant machine in Tony’s house, to a suitcase and then finally able to summon the suit at will, mobility is one of two key areas the suit has improved over the years. The another is the weapon and AI, with each version of the suit having smarter weapons and more refined AI. Iron Man and Captain America are the two main characters in terms of their role within the team and screen time in the Avengers.

It's great to see that Tony Stark as a character has grown significantly since the original kidnapping and his time in the cave. It does take a little time for Tony to adjust, as things at first are a little rusty with Tony not being a “team player”. He has made mistakes along the way, (like a certain one in Age of Ultron) but despite this, he is still a valued member of the team, with him being an unofficial father figure for young Peter Parker. With lots of quirks, and an always brilliant performance by Robert Downing Jr, it's no wonder Iron Man has gone from a B-Marvel Character to one of the fan favourites.
Captain America
"I can do this all day."
Captain America, or Steve Rodgers as he was known back then, had a tough childhood. Being a small kid growing up during World War II, he wanted nothing more to prove he can fight for the innocent. After getting his chance to become Captain America, he is frozen with a battle with Red skull for nearly 70 years. In the Avengers, he is clearly struggling. Having been out of action for so long he doesn't understand modern day life. But what makes Cap a natural leader is his honourable qualities are still in tact despite the time change. He directs the Avengers in the final battle with ease, despite the major differences in it's members and so becomes the groups leader.

Things haven’t always gone smoothly for Cap. He has clashed with Tony a few times, due to their difference in personality and the way they approach their objectives – especially with the Sokovia Accords. Unlike Tony’s suits, his shield has remained the same since he originally obtained it, yet his trademark shield remains consistently awesome throughout his adventures, like its leapt straight from the comics. With his expert military strategy, expert fighting skills, and a really heartfelt performance by Chris Evans, the character gets better and better every time you see him in action – on and off the “battlefield”.
Thor
"Do I look to be in a gaming mood?"
Thor struggled when he originally arrived on Earth. Unfamiliar with Earth’s customs, he soon started drawing attention to himself. After running into Agent Coulson and saving a town from an Asgardian war machine, Thor returned to Asgard. It wouldn’t be too long that he returned to earth, trying to reason with his brother Loki to stop the madness of trying to take over the Earth.

Tony takes this the wrong way, after stealing Loki from Tony’s clutches, and thinks Thor is an enemy. Thor has always been an outsider of the group, which he yields a magical hammer, which has the power to produce electricity and gives him the abilities of super-strength and flight, making him a force to be reckoned with, and a variable alley who can be summoned at any time. Although lacking his trademark helmet, Thor is a great representation from the comics, and the physique and deep voice from Chris Hemsworth really brings the character to life on screen.
The Hulk
"So you're saying that the Hulk, the other guy, saved my life? It's a nice sentiment."
Bruce Banner has a very brilliant scientific mind, and spends the majority of his time helping his fellow Avengers, locating Loki, building Ultron and more. He gets on well with Tony and Black Widow, but fears that his involvement in the Avengers is more to do with “the other guy”.

Speaking of which, it may take a while for the Hulk to finally appear, but when we do see lots of Hulk action. He is a mighty foe to bring down bad guys. Although seen in equal parts as dangerous and a hero, Bruce helped Tony develop the mega Hulkbuster armour, just in case something like mind control turns the Hulk into an (almost) unstoppable force. I much prefer Mark Bufflo's take on the character than Ed Norton's, and when it comes to character development, his character has probably had the most.
[Face off]Who is my favourite? Well I think it's... nice try, I'm not going to tell you that!
Black Widow
"You know what's about to happen. Do you really want to punch your way out?"
We first meet Natasha Romanoff in an undercover role as Mr Stark’s personal assistant in Iron Man 2. After finding out the location of Whiplash, she dons her SHIELD clothing and manages to take down all of Anton Vanko’s guards. When we catch up with her in the Avengers, being held “hostage” none-a-less, we already know what she's capable of. In a matter of minutes, with her elite fighting style and skill to kick butt, she frees herself.

Apart from a sling with Bruce, her character doesn’t really all that much throughout the films she appears in. Having plenty of opportunities throughout the years to prove that she can stand her own, using her SHIELD and Russian training. Considering that she has no super powers, is tough as nails, and has proven that she can stand toe to toe with Captain America during the rise of HYDRA and able to take down Chitauri soldiers with her partner in crime, Hawkeye. Who says woman can’t be superheroes? I dare for you to say that to Natasha’s face!
Hawkeye
"City is flying, we’re fighting robots and I have a bow & arrow. None of this makes sense."
We originally see Hawkeye as a special agent of SHIELD ready to take down Thor when he tries to reclaim the Mjolnir on earth. We don’t see him again until the Avengers, with him assisting Dr. Erik Selvig with the Tesseract. After trying to stop Loki, he gets brainwashed for most of the movie. A lot of Clint Barton remains a mystery, but we do find out he has a secret family with “smaller agents” as Tony puts it.

With the weakest skillset of any of the Avengers, he has a lot to prove and why the team need him. As his wife, Laura puts it: “I think they do. They're gods, and they need someone to keep them down to Earth.” His impressive Bow and Arrow skills come in handy, especially if you have a certain Black Pather standing in front of you and with assisting Natasha on the battlefield. With much needed character development and great moments in Age of Ultron, and quite like the character now.
Scarlet Witch
"He can't see the difference between saving the world and destroying it"
Scarlet Witch, real name Wanda Maximoff are the only two people (along with her brother Quicksilver)that survived Struckers experiments using Loki's scepter. She has the ability to move objects with her mind, and implant thoughts into other people. Making her one of the strongest members of the Avengers, she is still learning the scope of her powers, sometimes landing the Avengers in trouble with the law.
Vision
"Our strength invites challenge. Challenge incites conflict. Conflict breeds catastrophe."
The newest member of the Avengers, Vision was created by Tony and Bruce. He was created by combining JARVIS, the AI that runs Stark Industries and his Iron Man suits, and the mind gem. Being a cyborg, he has many great strengths, including flight, lasers, strength, among other powers. We have only seem him in two battles, he has already proven that he is a worthy member of the Avengers, even if he still finds humans confusing the more he learns about them.
Quicksilver
"You didn't see that one coming?"
Quicksilver, as the name suggests, does one thing and one thing well – go extremely fast. After initially helping Ultron defeat the Avengers, Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch became Avengers themselves after learning of Ultron's plot. While I feel Quicksilver is a better character than the X-Men take of the character, Quicksilver is better used in those films.


Closing Thoughts
The Avengers is becoming quite a big team, with the likes of Spider-Man and Black Pather possibly joining the ranks in the future. The team is still quite stable (apart from the tragic death of Quicksilver), so it’s interesting to see what state the team will be now, after the events of Civil War and the upcoming Infinity War.
[Marvel]Ah, the Marvel Studios logo. Do you get really pumped up when you see this come onto the screen?
You have been waiting for this list haven't you? It's a list I've been wanting to do since I originally created the site. So after seeing other peoples lists, and just coming back from seeing Captain America Civil War, I've finally gotten round to it. Does the list surprise you?
15. The Incredible Hulk
[The Incredible Hulk]When I originally watched the Incredible Hulk, I didn't like it at all. It wasn't terrible, but it did seem weak in a number of ways. After a rewatch, The Incredible Hulk isn’t all bad. The character of Bruce Banner is mysterious. We don't really know much, but get to find out bit by bit. The Hulk fight scenes are excellent, and I really like General Ross as the “villain”. But like Iron Man 2, for what is good, there are things that aren’t.

Mark Ruffalo is better than Edward Norton. There I said it. After his performance in The Avengers and future MCU films, I just couldn't warm to Norton. While the Abomination made for a good end battle sequence, I didn’t like the look of the character. And Betty, played by Liv Tyler is one of my least liked characters in the whole MCU.
14. Iron Man 2
[Iron Man 2] Ah, Iron Man 2. A disappointment you are. It's frustrating as it's got quite a few good moments. The whole Monaco scene was really good, and the part where Tony suits up the Mark V is still one of my favourite moments from the whole of the MCU. I quite like the fight with Rodney, which was quite different to what we have seen before and after. It's not just the action scenes, the scene in the court was fun and the introduction of Black Widow was so cool.

But it’s the rest of the scenes that feels disjointed and boring. Many criticise Iron Man 2 for being a stop-gap to The Avengers, and up to a point I would agree. There should have been more Iron Man action and less unnecessary scenes, especially with Justin Hammer. Man, I hate that guy.
13. Thor
[Thor] I'll hold my hand up now and admit that I've never been a huge Thor fan. To me, superheroes should be based on earth and have “earth-found” abilities. (That is until a 2014 movie changed my mind about that) I came into Thor thinking I wouldn't really like it, but found myself surprised. I did like it! But with so much competition, it’s still low down on my list.

I reckon having most of the story set on Earth was a good choice. With a familiar setting, plus the inclusion of SHIELD and Agent Coulson, makes it easier to introduce Thor into the MCU. Chris Hemsworth does an excellent job of bringing the character to life on screen, as he looks and sounds the part. Anthony Hopkins and the warriors three have good roles also, but it's Loki that is a highlight. Still one of the best villains in the MCU, even after all the other villains over the years.
12. Thor: the Dark World
[Thor: the Dark World] The first Thor was good, this is more of the same, just a little bit different. Thor: The Dark World does get a little bogged down with the science stuff, and I did find some of the earth scenes to be unnecessary (do we really need to see Jane Foster dating?). And another MCU film, another weak villain. If only they spent a bit more time learning about him and his motives. Shame.

Although many fans dislike Darcy, I thought she was quite funny, bringing some much need humour to Thor. I quite like some of the action scenes (especially the end fight) and Loki is once again used to the fullest. The story doesn’t seem very “interesting”, and apart from the appearance of an infinity stone, and the last scene, it doesn’t have much to do with the MCU. Still an improvement over the original.
11. Iron Man 3
[Iron Man 3] Fans were split on Tony Stark’s third outing so here is a bold statement: Iron Man 3 is a good film. “No way!?” I hear you cry out. Look again at those words, I said it's a good film, not a good Iron Man sequel.

Most of film involves round Tony finding the Mandarin. Which is fun to see for the most part, I just wish there was a little more Iron Man action. The Mailabu scene is fantastic and last act is awesome which includes an end fight that isn't two giant suits attacking. The mark 42 was a great improvement over previous suits, I just wished they stopped using the breaking apart gag. I also liked the Tony saves all those people on the plane scene. I think Tony was trying to prove Cap wrong who said: “the only person you care about is yourself” It could have been a great film with some edits and more Iron Man!

I’ll have to address the elephant in the room: the Mandarin. Did I like the great twist? I did actually, but I would of done slightly different. In the All Hail the King One-Shot, we find out at the end that the real Mandarin isn’t happy that someone has used his name. If that was placed as an after credit scene, I think the whole controversy of the character wouldn’t of happened.
10. Captain America: The First Avenger
[Captain America: The First Avenger] When I re-watched Captain America: The First Avenger, I went from thinking the film was ok, to thinking it's a great film. Steve Evans is perfect in the role, with him nailing the part of skinny Steve and Cap in equal measures. “I’m just a guy from Brooklyn” he says and you believe him. A clear conscious, and a key figure of saving the world from Hydra and the Nazis during the second world war.

Peggy Carter is one of the strongest supporting characters in the MCU, and still one of the best female marvel actresses. She looks the part, acts like the part and the character continues to surprise me. (Especially in her TV show) I really like Tommy lee Jones, playing a similar role to his Men in Black counterpart, which works in the movies favour, with witty humour and quick one liners.

Revisiting Cap and Bucky after seeing their characters develop in Winter Solider and Civil War gives the film a different prospective, especially when we find out what happened to Bucky. The only thing I didn't really like was the Red Skull. He wasn't bad by any means, just wasn't as good as he should of been.
09. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
[Captain America: The First Avenger] Sequels in the MCU are a mixed bag. You have some that aren't as good, some that are on par and some that are a clearly better than the original album. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the difficult second album, can they match what they did before and better it?

No is the simple answer. The first was a surprise hit, with millions learning about the existence of Groot, Rocket, Star Lord and the others. But saying that, I would say that this is almost as good. There are loads of fun moments between all the main team, just like the first film, and the actors are all fantastic once again. The story has a few twists and turns, but the film is mainly focuses on developing the characters we know and love.

However, some of new characters aren't quite as polished as they should be, but this being part of the MCU, I’m certain we will see more in Avengers: Infinity War and beyond. Besides - how can I dislike a film that has Baby Groot?
08. Avengers: Age of Ultron
[Avengers: Age of Ultron] The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy were all very well received with fans. Age of Ultron had a lot of hype, would it be able to match it? Not quite but it had a good darn try.

Age of Ultron has lots of fan favourite moments. Vision picking up Thor’s hammer, Stan Lees excelsior cameo, Captain America’s language gag and Hawkeye doesn’t like being brainwashed moment. With three new Avengers, an improved Hawkeye and a good villain in the form of Ultron, it does a lot of good stuff.

This film does have one major problem, and considering the nature of the series, it doesn’t creep up that often. It does spend too much time setting up future films, with lengthy dream sequences and Thor’s pool slowing down the action. It does more good than bad, but those bad points make it an excellent film, not a classic like it’s predecessor.
07. Ant-Man
[Ant-Man] Now Ant-Man, the potential black sheep of the MCU. It's got a funny name (that even the character tries to change), a weird sounding power and has never been considered as one of Marvel's “good” characters. Many fans and the general public had doubts and thought this would be Marvel’s first flop. But boy, did Marvel prove them wrong.

You might of noticed I prefer this than Avengers: Age of Ultron. While that film has plenty of great moments, there was a few missed opportunities. Ant-Man doesn't have that problem. It's a great movie. It blends humour, action and heist scenes well. The shrinking and super strength superpowers of the suit are great on screen, with some ace special effects. Realistically, this is as good as they could of done with such a silly concept. While not the best film in the MCU, it’s definitively one of the more enjoyable ones.
06. Spider-Man: Homecoming
[Ant-Man] The Spider-Man movie series has had a lot of ups and downs in the past. For every Spider-Man 2, you have an Amazing Spider-Man 2. So when Marvel were developing Spider-Man: Homecoming with the help of Sony, not the other way around, I remained optimistic. Fresh from the cinema, I can tell you it’s a big improvement over the last few films, and for me, remains just behind Spider-Man 2 as the best Spidey film.

So what does the film do well? Well, Tom Holland nails both parts. He isn’t an unlovable nerd like Toby McGuire, yet he isn’t the more popular kid like Andrew Garfield. Tom also plays Spider-Man to perfection, with his trademarks quips during battle and doing a lot of his stunts helps the film in a lot of ways. Michael Keaton as the Vulture is my second favourite Spidey villain (behind Doc Ock) and it will be interesting if he returns in the sequel. I also like the fact that Tony Stark and Iron Man do appear, but don’t take over the movie.

What didn’t I like about it? Well two main things. The first is we don’t see him web swinging around New York like the other films. This Spidey still lives in downtown New York, hence we don’t see him around large skyscrapers. The other is Aunt May. I’ve got nothing against the actress, but it doesn’t seem to fit. I’m just glad to have another awesome Spider-Man film!
05. Guardians of the Galaxy
[Guardians of the Galaxy] Marvel have had great success taking what was B list super heroes (like Iron Man and Ant-Man) and making them as popular as A List Superheroes. But how about making C list super heroes into household names? On the outset, it seemed like Marvel were taking a massive gamble: but they did it again, what are the odds of that happening again?

To top it off, it's one of the best movies that Marvel have done so far. While it is set in the MCU, the whole movie (barring one scene) takes place in space, somewhere we have rarely seen meaning it makes for a quite different movie.

Three things make Guardians stand out: It’s characters (one is a talking Raccoon and another is a cool Tree!), the soundtrack (it's got the best use of popular songs and one of the best soundtrack complications of all time) and it’s really funny (with some great humour with great moments from all the guardians). Let’s not forget that it was this film that jump started Chris Pratt’s legendness and the whole dancing Groot craze.
04. Captain America: Civil War
[Captain America: Civil War]There was a lot riding on this one. With an epic Captain America film and a slightly disappointing Age of Ultron, will this raise the bar or will be a great film? With 13 films in the bag, it only really seems like Marvel is now only stretching it’s legs. I don’t think it quite beat The Winter Solider but it's still Amazing and Spectacular.

Yes, those puns were intentional. The reintroduction of the Spider-Man character in the MCU was handled perfectly. We also have another new great on-screen character Black Panther, one of the best action sequences in the MCU to date, and lots of great moments along the way. What a great film, filled with all your favourite Marvel characters.
03. The Avengers
[The Avengers] You have those landmark films in history. Films that captured something that had not seen on screen before and loved by millions. While Spider-Man and the Dark Knight are classed as such, it was this film that comic book nerds all over the world had been waiting for! It was the first assemble superhero movie, with different characters from different movies. It was truly a fantastic way to bring Marvel’s phase one to a close.

The Avengers is still the most successful superhero movie of all time and it's not hard to see why. I could write a whole list of all the great moments, with so many to choose from. Choose a character, and he or she will have a chance to shine. Marvel even managed to improve Hulk after the disappointing reception to The Incredible Hulk. The big question remains: Can Avengers: Infinity War top this?
02. Captain America: The Winter Solider
[Captain America: The Winter Solider] Now where do I start on this masterpiece. How about the story? Hands down the best story in the entire MCU. It has lots of unexpected twists and turns. Including, what I think, is best plot twist in the entire superhero genre – HYDRA! In one word, the whole MCU is changed forever. I still remember how shocked I was when I first saw this scene.

Elsewhere, Captain America 2 acts like a thriller, with Cap on the run for nearly the whole movie. With the help of the Black Widow and the Falcon (both are awesome), it's got excellent scene after excellent scene. It also includes one of my favourite MCU scenes: the one where Nick Fury gets attacked by “Police” and he uses his bulletproof self driving (modern day KITT? You bet!) car to survive the attack.

It’s not just the big scenes that are excellent, it’s also the little details too. Those combat scenes with tightly choreographed knife scenes are extremely impressive, considering the actors did that themselves. Nick Fury has a great one liner towards the end of the film, and Black Widow is obsessed on finding Steve Rodgers a date. Coming from a technical standpoint, Winter Solider is the best film Marvel have made, but coming from an enjoyable and fun factor, my No 1 pick has it beat.
01. Iron Man
[Iron Man] Finally we are at number one. For many, one the best films in the MCU and one of the best superhero films ever. If it wasn't for Iron Man, the MCU wouldn't exist, we wouldn't have the perfect Iron Man, and the superhero genre would be a different place indeed.

It’s hard not to view Iron Man through nostalgia glasses, as I remember first watching this film around the same time that I had been disappointed with X-Men: The Last Stand and Spider-Man 3. This was so different to what I had seen before, and it didn’t fall into the trap that a lot of superhero movies make: it did not get bogged down by complicated stories and story arcs. It keeps the story simple and entertaining.

Superhero origin stories are generally well known by audiences, but because Tony Stark was classed as a B-list character, this one was important to get right. Unlike some origins where your just waiting for the alter-ego to make an appearance, this one is worth investing time in. The film involves Tony building and perfecting his Iron Man suit, and he does just so with entertaining scenes, witty one-liners and some bad-a** action to boot!

Robert Downing Jr. is a perfect choice of casting, and with a great AI named JARVIS, and with just a cool suit to see, this film has it all. Marvel turned the superhero into one of the most popular in the world. Iron Man, thank you for creating my favourite movie series of all time.
Closing Thoughts
When people say that Marvel own the movie business at the moment, they aren't wrong. Even when do have a film that isn't as strong as some of the others, they are still considered successful and still add story arcs, character development and other things to the MCU universe.

With Doctor Strange now out (which I have yet to see) and Thor Ragnarok‬, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel incoming, there seems to be no stopping them. Which is great because they are doing a terrific job. Why slow down when the whole world loves what your doing?
