Every Marvel Movie You NEED to See Before "Avengers: Infinity War"

With about a week left until we reach the culmination  of 10 years of film-making in the Marvel Cinematic Universe I realized that there are some people who might not have seen all of the 18 movies Marvel  has made. That's why I've made a list of the movies you DEFINITELY need to see before Avengers: Infinity War comes out on April 27!! 

All of the following movies will have key plot points tied to Infinity War and will help you better understand what's going on. They are all in order of how to watch them too! Check them out below!

Captain America: The First Avenger

 

This is the first movie to introduce an Infinity Stone into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with Red Skull discovering the Tesseract/Space Stone. The First Avenger also introduces the relationship between Captain America and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier which is pivotal throughout all of the MCU!

  • Buy It or Watch on FX


The Avengers

 

It's the first time we have Earth's Mightiest Heroes coming together and if you thought this film was EPIC when it first came out, Avengers: Infinity War is going to surpass it easily! Also this is the first film we get a glimpse at Thanos in the end credits!!

  • Buy It or Watch on FX


Thor: The Dark World

 

Normally I wouldn't recommend this film because it's considered the worst MCU film, but you need to see it because it introduces another Infinity Stone called the Aether! We also get to see the dynamic between Thor and Loki develop even more, which could be in jeopardy in Infinity War!

  • Buy It or Watch on FX


Guardians of the Galaxy

 

Easily my favorite of all the MCU films and one of the funniest Marvel films to date, you need to see Guardians of the Galaxy because it introduces another Infinity Stone, known as the Power Orb. Also it introduces us to the MCU on a more cosmic level and brings Groot to the MCU and who doesn't love any form of Groot!

We also get to see Thanos in the flesh and realize how much power he actually has!

  • Buy It or Watch on FX


Avengers: Age of Ultron

 

We get to see the Avengers team up again and expand the cast, but we also get introduced to ANOTHER Infinity Stone in Loki's scepter known as the Mind Stone. It's now planted in the forehead of the hero Vision, who we also get introduced to. It might not end pretty for him in Infinity War!

  • Buy It


Captain America: Civil War

 

This has to be the most EPIC movie in the MCU up until Infinity War comes out but we literally got to see all of our favorite Avengers fight against one another. We also get introduced to Black Panther and Spider-Man in the MCU and it kind of sets up where everyone is at when Infinity War comes out!

  • Buy It or Watch on Netflix


Doctor Strange

 

One more Infinity Stone is introduced in this film inside the Eye of Agamotto called the Time Stone! We also get to see the MCU expand to a more mystical reality! Plus, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange is so great!

  • Buy It or Watch on Netflix


Thor: Ragnarok

 

The post-credits scene of this directly sets up the events of Infinity War so watch it just for that, but it also sets up even more of a relationship between Thor and Loki and lets us know what Hulk has been up to since Age of Ultron!

  • Buy It or See in Select Theaters


Black Panther

 

Even though the story in Black Panther is standalone and as far as we know isn't directly tied to the events of Infinity War, but one of the major action sequences in Infinity War takes place in Wakanda with the characters from Black Panther!


There you have it! If you can't watch EVERY Marvel movie then check out the recap video below which is only about 15 minutes long but recaps every movie through Black Panther!!

 

ONE. MORE. WEEK.
