The end of an era is in sight: on Wednesday appears the apotheosis Avengers: Endgame on canvas. That you have all the 21 previous movies should have seen, is very much exaggerated. Six films to be sufficient, that will save you roughly 27 hours of film.

Must you really days wear out of the view of achtergrondfilms to Endgame to get? Of course not, but some context will be helpful to you. 22 blockbusters that Marvel Studios, meanwhile, already fired share is first and foremost a superhero(in). Iron Man and Captain America each have their trilogy, Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange to keep it a one (wo)man show. But that’s not all: the scenarios do not walk lauter at the same time relative to each other. The interaction between the characters through the movie sequences around the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the name betrays the overarching character – a charming motley crew.

Even those who hate the tight packs and the equally well-delineated plotlijnen must admit that the MCU kind gathered sticks. To illustrate: after the intense climax of Avengers (2011) where Iron Man aka Tony Stark in featured, faces Stark in Iron Man 3 (2013) with the post-traumatic stress disorder (ptsd). In Spiderman: Homecoming (2017) plays Stark also made a guest appearance, and in Thor: Ragnarok (2017) receives the Norse god help the Hulk.

Game over

The number of guest appearances and hints to previous and following movies can only the biggest fanatics keep track of, and you can get the 38 hours of total shooting time on the same scattergun. The antagonist Thanos from Avengers (2011) gradually as the main schorriemorrie for the whole epic, has as its purpose the so-called Infinity stones to get hold of. If that happens, then reigns over the universe and it is game over. Come to Thanos or the Infinity stones in one way or another in the movie, then it is likely to be important for the final plot in Endgame.

On the basis of the balance between the relevance with Thanos’ impending doom on the one hand, and the interrelationship with other superheroes, on the other hand, a large part of the sequence is an abbreviated list not. So tell the stand-alonemovies Ant-Man (2015), its sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and Spiderman: Homecoming precious little about Thanos. Exuberant interact with their brother and zusterfilms do it. Doctor Strange (2016) provide any context about the Infinity stones, but then again has little to no connection with the Avengers team. The Incredible Hulk (2008) is also negligible. The first meeting with Captain America (Chris Evans) and co. from 2011 sums up the story of the mutant biologist enough together. The same is true for the two Guardians of the Galaxy-movies, whose characters without too many difficulties between the scenario of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) know each other.

With a superhero in the main role draws Captain Marvel (2018) resistance to the mannenbastion in the series, but the movie is pretty loose by Thanos’ evil plans. Black Panther (2018) is almost exclusively non-white cast even a sneer to the predominantly white film industry, he sketches not more than the silhouettes of Infinity War. In Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War (2016), the characters behind the super heroes more to the fore, especially between Captain America and Iron Man. Only in Age of Ultron is Thanos, but in a bonusscène after the credits. Those last two you can skip.


No less than eighteen movies, you can already between brackets place on the list, now remember the order. Start do your best with the first-ever Marvel superhero, Captain America (2011). In his battle with Hydra and Red Skull is the alter ego of Steven Rogers in contact with the Tesseract, a first Infinity stone. In the Iron Man trilogy excels Robert Downey Jr.’s armor the brightest in the first (2008), which follows. In Thor (2011) the second Infinity stone, its appearance, and makes the viewer first introduced to Thor’s rival, and stayer Loki (Tom Hiddleston). After an initial nod to Thanos in Avengers (2011) you should create the stop at the Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014) for an update on S. H. I. E. L. D., the organization of the heldencollectief under the leadership of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

After any exit along the true blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, you may lastly in a straight line – and with confidence – to the cinema go for Endgame. Through this shortcut, you go logically to many easter eggs and references all over, but it will save you more than a day bingewatchen.
