Ahead of Avengers: Endgame, we watched all 21 MCU films from Iron Man to Captain Marvel — to recap on all the things we missed and loved about Phase 3 of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Day 3 updates:
There’s a random sequence in Homecoming, where Tony Stark seems to be in India (which as usual looks like a scene from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.) It’s either this, or the destitute Calcutta they created in Avengers; either a riot of colours or poverty.
The introductory sequence of Spider-Man is a very cool montage of the events surrounding Peter Parker’s brief role in Civil War.
Guardians 2 already seems exhausting. It’s still fun, but it’s also just more of the same. The first time around, it was fresh. Now, not so much
The mid-credits scene has Doctor Strange and Thor having a drink.
Doctor Strange: The protagonist Stephen Strange is a bit of an insufferable prick. You don’t sympathise with him even when he has an accident.
Fourth film of the day: Doctor Strange
There isn’t much depth in Civil War, even though it’s largely fun throughout.
After teasing Wakanda in Age of Ultron, King T’Chaka and Prince T’Challa finally appear in the MCU
One thing good about Civil War. It’s a long film, but it’s relentless from the word go.
There are no aliens or Infinity Stones in this film, but Ant-Man still rates quite highly for me in the entire franchise.
Ant-Man’s tiny perspective ends up giving the film some of the most imaginative sequences you’ve seen in the MCU.
Marvel’s finally rectifying their gender imbalance with Ant-Man.
Ant-Man is all kinds of cool from the start. Who’d have thought Phoebe’s husband would one day play a Marvel superhero?
Age of Ultron often struggles with the weight of its own ambition.
Wakanda finally gets a mention in MCU!
The Marvel Cinematic Universe really blew up in public consciousness after The Avengers, so with Age of Ultron, Kevin Feige, Joss Whedon and team really needed to step things up.
On day one of our power-packed Marvel marathon, we watched five films: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America.
On day two as well, we watched five films: Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Stay tuned as we bring to you easter eggs, details we missed, moments we cherished from our favourite Marvel films and miscellaneous other opinions in the Ultimate Marvel Movies Marathon, ahead of Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame is only 10 days away. The last film in a massive 22-film extravanganza — Phase 3 of Marvel Cinematic Universe — comes to an end in 10 days.

Excitement levels are high, and a Marvel movie marathon is a great way to sustain it till the final film releases. In this 'Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon' we hope to take you through all the tropes, scenes, dialogues and characters that made you fall in love with MCU, as we wait with bated breath for Avengers: Endgame.
