I enjoy the Marvel Universe Movies a great deal, as millions do, so here is a wee blog about Marvel.
The first movie I watched was Iron Man with Robert Downey Junior and it was/is a very good action movie. Now if you haven’t watched the Marvel Universe there is actually an order you need to watch them in for it all to make sense as it is one huge story arc.
I am still to watch Doctor Strange all the way through, I started but only got half way through so need to pick it up again. I wasn’t really getting in to it but a lot of times I enjoy the movie the second time more than the first for some reason. Agents of Shield is a tv series and while it does link into the story arc to a degree it also stands alone, but is well worth a watch and is now on season four. My order of preference for the movies would be,
Captain America The Winter Soldier
Iron Man 2
Iron Man 3
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Incredible Hulk
The Incredible Hulk starred Edward Norton but the character is now played by Mark Ruffalo who to be fair is a far better choice. Edward Norton had the misfortune to be in one of the weakest Marvel movies but he also did not pull off the character at all well, he just didn’t fit. The special effects in the movies are some of the best you will ever see, sometimes there is maybe a little too much but they are amazing. The Avengers movies have tended to cram all of the characters in them, or most of them, and that gets it all a little cluttered, they also introduce new characters to the arc at the same time. If I have a gripe about the Marvel Universe is they need to tie in Agents of Shield better, it doesn’t make sense that there is not a larger cross over other than the main character Coulson. I would like to see some of the other characters get featured in the movies a bit more as it would make the arc more rounded.
Either way the Marvel Movies are ace and a lot of fun, if you haven’t bothered to watch them I would make the time, they are worth it.
