Just got out of Infinity War a few hours ago. It was at least better than super overrated Black Panther... they took some big risks with this unlike that very generic and predictable boilerplate film. But I'm not really sure how I feel about it.

idk I liked it, they took some unexpected turns with it that kind of had me stunned

Level 82
Apr 29, 2018
The main reason that I think I might dislike it is that the unexpected twists are SO big that it seems to me like they are giving away most of the plot to Avengers 4. Because the MCU cannot continue the way Avengers 3 left it.

SPOILER WARNING

The characters that survived are all the ones you would have expected to die. And all the ones that died are new and have lots of cash left in their udders for Disney to milk out of them, plus long contracts already signed going in to the future. There's no way they can just leave things like that. So... I imagine... and would bet large amounts of money that I'm right... that in Avengers 4 we will see Captain Marvel (& Adam Warlock?) come to Earth to assist the surviving members of the Avengers, and that those surviving members will do something to reverse what happened at the end of Avengers 3, very likely including something that will require the Avenger whom Dr. Strange told "it was the only way" to sacrifice himself.

If all of that comes to pass then it's not really as ballsy as it might seem at first glance. And I feel like there's no way they're going to stick to it for artistic reasons there are billions of dollars at stake. So... assuming that everything is going to be undone it feels less ballsy and more like a cheap trick.

Plus I find Ruffalo's Banner to be so whiny and unconvincing and he gets worse in every movie. I wish they had managed to keep Norton. And Wakanda is stupid I hope that the next movie is not set there and I can just forget about it and skip the inevitable Black Panther sequel. And the stuff is space is ridiculous in terms of scale and physics and so on but... eh whatever.. I know it's just a comic book movie. I enjoyed it. I'll probably go see it again on IMAX.

The director of the Guardians of the Galaxy films said that Adam Warlock will not be in Avengers 4, and that he got flack from the studio for teasing Warlock in the post-credits scene of GOTG2 because of it. Supposedly he might play a role in GOTG3. So unless he's pulling a J.J. Abrams and is lying to people in order to try and surprise them, we won't see Warlock in the Infinity War sequel.

May 11, 2018
As for the rest, I agree that killing off several characters for whom sequels have already been announced undermines the tension of the film's ending. Between that and the fact that the contracts for actors like Downey, Evans, and maybe Hemsworth are said to be up after the next film, the popular theory is that several of the original Avengers may sacrifice themselves to defeat Thanos and undo what happened. For some people that may cheapen the ending of Infinity War, but I say it's all about the journey, not the destination. As long as they can make the story of how it happens good, it's fine with me.

Having had much more time to ruminate I've decided I liked it a lot. Just wasn't sure how to feel about the ending for a while. My rankings of all MCU films to date:

1. The Avengers 2. Infinity War 3. Ragnarok 4. Civil War 5. Guardians of the Galaxy 6. Iron Man 7. Ant-Man 8. The Winter Soldier 9. Doctor Strange 10. Spider-Man Homecoming 11. GotG vol 2 12. The Incredible Hulk 13. Captain America 14. Thor 15. Iron Man 2 16. Ant-Man & the Wasp 17. Age of Ultron 18. Black Panther 19. Iron Man 3 20. The Dark World 21. Captain Marvel

looking forward to Endgame

Having had even more time to think about it, I think now that both Infinity War and Endgame were better movies than the original Avengers. Endgame was masterful. Should have been nominated for Best Picture, not that garbage Black Panther movie. The rest of my rankings are the same except I'd probably move Iron Man above Guardians, and Winter Soldier above Ant-Man, having rewatched both recently.

I'll echo what everyone else is saying, that Big Hero 6 should be included. And while we're at it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) should count towards Spidey's total. Either those should count, or the quiz should specify live-action movies.

Surely they are not. Superman and Batman are both from DC Comics, Marvel's biggest competitor. There are and have been many different comic book-producing studios in the United States but Marvel and DC are the two biggest.

Ouch, I ll admit I don't know for every character if they are DC or marvel, just the bigger names. But I do know there are strong feelings about it and that you shouldnt get them the wrong way around ! Say this at a comic-con and you ll be swarmed by hundreds of angry fans with foam swords..

(I am curious if people would get more mad over this or over people confusing star wars with star trek...)

Level 90
Apr 4, 2019
Really? I would say the first two Spider-Man and the first two X-Men movies were pretty good. Daredevil and Blade could have been better though.

But yeah, aside from those everything else before the MCU was pretty crap.

Apr 4, 2019
Of course there’s some MCU movies that are pretty bland as well. But I don’t think any of them are as bad as Howard the Duck, Elektra, or any of the Fantastic Fours.
+2
Level 82
Apr 11, 2019
The first Donner Superman film and the first two Burton Batman films were pretty good. Weird Science, V for Vendetta, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, Sin City, The Road to Perdition, Mystery Men, Men in Black, The Mask, A History of Violence, Hellboy, Ghost World, The Crow, Constantine, 300, and American Splendour were all pre-MCU, as well. Some of those were okay and others were downright brilliant. It wasn't all Elektra and Catwoman.

and... I know I'm in the minority here, but I actually think Howard the Duck is underrated. If you don't take it seriously (and why would you?) it's actually pretty funny.

+1
Level 82
Apr 11, 2019
As for the MCU films I think it's really remarkable that they've made 21 movies now and stayed so consistent. None of them are downright terrible. Though, in my subjective opinion, Captain Marvel, Iron Man 3, and Thor the Dark World were all pretty bad. Avengers Age of Ultron could have been a lot better. and Black Panther is hands down the most overrated comic book movie in history - objectively very "meh"
+1
Level 90
Apr 11, 2019
I agree with you that most of those films are somewhat entertaining but I was referring to movies that most people would associate with Marvel (as in the Marvel logo is clearly shown somewhere on screen or in posters). Though I still stand by my opinion that nothing in the MCU is as bad as what came before it.
+1
Level 82
May 3, 2019
In that case "everything else that people 'associate with Marvel' that came before the MCU not including Spider-Man, X-Men, Blade, and Daredevil"... is not a very long list of movies. :P That's basically Howard the Duck and The Fantastic Four and then you're at the end of the list.
+1
Level 82
May 3, 2019
and there are also Marvel movies that came out after the start of the MCU that are pretty dang bad. Not just Thor the Dark World and Captain Marvel (which were worse than all those good movies I listed above) but also... Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, Punisher War Zone, Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the latest Fantastic Four reboot, which were arguably worse than Daredevil or Blade.
+1
Level 82
Apr 11, 2019
Blade was the first time they made a successful comic book movie that was not about Batman or Superman. Most other attempts back then were pretty laughably bad including the 1990s versions of Punisher and Captain America. Blade was a little corny and pretty low-budget but it showed that a comic book film without a super-well-known marquis character, taken seriously, adapted faithfully, could be an entertaining film and box office success.

but then X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) were both way better and way more successful than Blade. After those films made so much money that's when we started heading toward the current state of Hollywood where most of the money movies make every year comes from comic book movies. And this is because those movies were so well done compared to anything that came before or around the same time.

The sequels X2 and Spider-Man 2 are, IMO, two of the best comic book movies ever made. But... there were also some stinkers from that era.

+1
Level 82
May 3, 2019
it is often said and may be true, though, that if not for Blade then X-Men and Spider-Man would never have been made as both had been in production limbo for years before the success of New Line's humble little vampire flick pushed Fox and Sony to finally finish their own Marvel-licensed movies.
+1
Level 79
Jan 7, 2024
The first 2 Fantastic Four movies (not the 2015 reboot) were not spectacular, but entertaining enough. The director's cut of Daredevil was also far better than the theatrical version, though still not amazing. However, the spinoff movie Elektra was one of the worst, most idiotic pieces of garbage that has ever been committed to film. But you'd have to wait until the Daredevil Netflix show for a truly good rendition of that character, and also to see the Elektra character with a quality script.

I'm still curious about the exclusion of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Big Hero 6, both of which are firmly Marvel properties without even the gray area of being under a different imprint or starting under a different publisher, and were both most definitely feature films. If the quiz is about live-action movies only, it should specify that. The New Mutants should also be included, at least as part of the X-Men franchise if not on its own.

I have now read the caveat and can safely say that my previous comment is somewhat useless, but Spider-Man: No Way Home or Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse isn't counted. My assumption for the Spider-Man movies that are counted are Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home along with one of the above.

It would’ve been nice to see Howard the Duck on here. I know the film is from 1986, but it had a $36 million budget. I assume the 1998 cutoff is to prevent Marvel’s super-low budget movies made for copyright purposes from being counted (like the 1990 Captain America).

Technically, Big Hero 6 is based on Marvel comicbooks, too. They first appeared in their own short-lived series in, fittingly, 1998, and their stories are set in the same shared universe as most other Marvel comicbook stories are.
