Best Marvel movies to watch before seeing Avengers: Infinity War
Posted by: DavidS
Date: May 15, 2018 09:49AM
We are leaving for a Disney cruise in 2 weeks and they are showing Infinity War on the ship, so I have not seen it yet. I have also not seen the last few Marvel movies, including Avengers: Age of Ultron (I may have seen it but don't remember), Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther.

I have seen GotG 1&2, Dr. Strange, Spiderman: Homecoming, and Ant Man.

Which 1-2 movies would serve me best on getting me somewhat caught up before seeing Infinity War?

The ones you listed. I've got to catch up to them too, despite having been exposed to enough spoilers.

Probably CA - Civil War is the most important (that you haven't seen).

Agree.
Plus, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and first Avengers, if you want.

But, I'll just throw out there that you can probably follow the story without seeing he backstory first.

If you'll enjoy them, I would watch three -
Avengers, Age of Ultron, and Civil War, in that order.

If only two, Age of Ultron and Civil War.

If none, you'll probably be fine.

Just get the Netflix free 30 day trial and watch them all. Unlike the DC Comics movies, the Marvel ones are all finely connected.

I recommend reading 55 years of Marvel comics




Feel free to start anywhere


if you're a real fan, 1943 or so is also okay


They started this fight back in October 1964? Keep sluggin', boys!

Characters from all the movies you mentioned will appear in Infinity War, so as long as you have at least some familiarity with who they are it should be fine.

Black Panther may not be as directly relevant as the others, but I daresay it was a better movie.

David,

pRICE has it correct in my opinion. Overall, all of the Marvel movies are pretty good and entertaining on their own. Each brings something to the overall storyline. If you have a chance, watch them all as well as the various TV series, i.e. Agent Carter, Agents of Shield, etc.

This site is helpful in putting together an easy to follow order:

Ultron, Civil War and last Thor, In that order.

Ultron seems to drag a bit, but has some important character introductions. Civil War is key to the whole premise. Since Thor & Hulk werent in Civil War, Ragnorak fills the void.

To make thing even MORE annoying, there are some episodes of Agents of SHIELD that contribute to movie plots.

Caveat emptor. Unless the movies have turned you into a budding comics aficionado, don’t let yourself get stressed on the level of ‘What order should I watch Star Wars in?’. My sister is a complete noob, and she’ll be fine watching Infinity War having seen only Civil War and Black Panther and with me by her side to pick off the odd stray reference that might elude her.

Age of Ultron, Civil War and Black Panther should do you nicely given the others you’ve already seen. Enjoy.

The Marvel movie universe seems to have really devoted into the epic war universe, much like the Transformers franchise.

I liked the first Iron Man, the first Spider-Man, and the first Capt. America. Maybe the first of most of the Marvel movies. The sequels to almost all of them were disappointing. I really didn't care for Infinity Wars. Black Panther was really enjoyable.

I do like most of the DC stuff more, most recently Wonder Woman.

Agent Carter was a terrific show. It had a great period feel to it, and reminded me of the Saturday morning serials, only much much better. One season and they cut the show. Really disappointing. Hayley Attwell is appealing on so many levels.
