As a complete superhero “non-fan”, I have decided to start my journey into the Marvel universe.
I know, I know, like, which Planet of the Galaxy am I from right? 😜
However, it’s better late than never. I get the chance for a Marathon run only on weekends. Despite that, I think my progress has been pretty good. 🤘
Captain America: The First Avenger
So since I was completely new to Marvel, I decided to start my journey with the First Avenger. This movie establishes the base about S. H. I. E. L. D and Hydra and also introduces the first Infinity Stone.
In Tony Stark’s own words, he is the, “Multi billionaire Genius Playboy Philanthropist”. The thing about the Iron Man is that, even though his arrogance irritates me it is the very thing that I like about him!! 😂
The Incredible Hulk
I would have watched The Incredible Hulk but many advised me against watching the Edward Norton starrer, so I gave it a skim.
Iron Man 2
Just goes to show that the Iron Man cannot be ignored. This movie also introduces the Black Widow, whose action and style is a treat to watch.
The Crown Prince of Asgard has always been my favorite. And now Loki too is. I mean, I get that they are Gods but Loki’s shape shifting and illusion abilities are so amazing, I’ll like some any day. And also, their planet is amazingly beautiful 😍
The entire superhero cast needed to form The Avengers are now ready, so their first battle takes place in New York. With Captain America leading the team, we have Thor, the Black Widow, the Arrow, the Hulk (now Mark Ruffalo) and finally yes, Iron Man who saves the world.
Iron man 3
More Suits as Armors. But story wise, I liked this movie more. Though this movie has nothing to do with the Infinity stones plot but apparently a knowledge of Tony Stark’s PTSD is important.
Thor: The Dark World
I liked this part more too. The concept of Convergence and portals opening in different worlds….. wowww…. 😍
Also, the funeral scene of Queen Freeya was so beautifully shot. It ended on a good note too. Loki 😁👍
Captain America : The Winter Soldier
Better than Cap’s First Avenger outing. I guess, since he was in present time, the action sequences looked way better. I must say, this one is one of the best Marvel movies so far for me.
Avengers: The Age of the Ultron
Technically, The Age of the Ultron, was the only Avenger movie I had watched before my marathon spree. So I gave it a skip here.
This movie introduces the Maximoff twins and the AI Vision.
Guardians of the Galaxy
I didn’t find it outright funny but yeah Groot was a hoot! I like the concept of different planets, abandoned or otherwise, in the Galaxy. And the final scene, when Peter Quill just bursts into dance in front of Ronan 😂 Even I was like, “Why are you doing, whatever you are doing!? ”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
Baby Groot is so cuteee. He reminds me of my nephew sometimes 😂 I felt like the theme of this volume was family, bcoz everyone was quite emo. Now, I personally don’t like Gamora and Nebula both, but this one line that Nebula says, “You always wanted to win whereas I only wanted a sister” ➡ Deep!
I tried, I honestly tried, but I dunno, yea Paul Rudd is charming and all and usually I dig good looking criminals but it was just too much action for someone like me.
Captain America : The Civil War
Following the events of Sokovia, The Avengers are divided amongst themselves and this movie is a fight between your favorite superheros. This movie also brings in The Black Panther, Ant Man and Spider-Man ( Spider Boy as Tony Stark calls him).
The laws of physics are turned upside down by neuro surgeon turned sorcerer Dr Stephen Strange. Also, we learn about different dimensions and the Time Stone in this one.
I say, I appreciate a villian with style (Hela) and some bhai bhai bonding ( Thor and Loki 💙). The lighter tone of the whole movie also made it very enjoyable too. But why whyy did they chop his locks??? 😔
And his eye 😱
And his hammer 😯
Yea a better version of all the Spidermans out there. I liked how Spiderman is the Iron Man’s protégé and each and every scene between these two was a delight. Esp the ending – Press conference turned engagement proposal 😂
I would say a well made movie. Loved that technology. Wakanda Forever!! 🙌
Now with all this sufficient background, I’ll be watching Infinity War right after I publish this post.
Any Marvel fans out there who want to gimme the encouraging thumbs up??
