    "All the Marvel movies that are out now, I get confused. The characters are intertwined and you don't know who's who anymore. Dead Pool is a must see. It will get you on track and ready to understand what and where all our superhero's are doing to save the planet."

    "I loved this movie and so did my son and daughter. Even if you don't know Doctor Strange like my kids, I think you'll enjoy this movie anyway. The action scene is exciting and the graphics are amazing. I definitely recommend this movie."


Did you know that you don't have to watch every single Marvel movie to understand Avengers: Infinity War? Yes, it is plausible! Unless you're truly a die-hard fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, watching the whole franchise can be a herculean feat. This is not to say that being thorough is not worth it. Each one of them plays a crucial role in knowing every nook and cranny of the bigger picture. It doesn't even come as a surprise that many sites have come up with guides that provide Marvel movies to watch before Infinity War. However, not everyone can afford the luxury of time to delve into each one of them. There are those who have just recently plunged into the magnificence of its world, making it harder for them to keep up with other fans. But lo and behold, there is an easier way to relate to those who have seen all 18 movies in the span of ten years!

Surprisingly, there are only four movies that are essential to the culmination of all 18 films. The first agenda on the list is to watch The Avengers. In this film, your favorite Marvel superheroes come together for the first time. This is already enough for viewers to have a substantial idea about the team. The Avengers also introduces Thanos, the main antagonist of the universe. This should be followed by streaming Guardians of the Galaxy, where another set of superheroes bent on saving the universe unite. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Doctor Strange finally complete the list. These two superhero films usher in pivotal characters in Infinity War

    "Avengers, Age of Ultron is definitely a must watch before the newest movie comes out. It continues the success of the first movie in stunning fashion. I urge you to go see this even if you don't like superhero movies."

    "Guardians of the Galaxy is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is a must watch before watching Avengers: Infinity War. All the movies before it are important so its best to watch them all as they're all linked in some way. As for this movie, the Guardians of the Galaxy I feel weren't particularly well known before these movies but are just as entertaining as the more popular Avengers are. Give it and all the Marvel movies a watch and you wont be disappointed."

    "Needed to get caught up on the Marvel movies to see before Avengers Infinity war comes out. This was a great movie with a ton of action and set up the SpiderMan Homecoming movie nicely. I'm getting very excited about the rest of the movies and to see Infinity War as soon as I'm caught up."

    "You should really watch Black Panther before you see Infinity Wars, it's integral to the plot. I didn't think this movie was all that great. It was full of preaching and historical inaccuracies, ok just flat out lies really. But the effects were pretty cool and the action was good once they finally got down to it."
