with all this Infinity War talk I'm surprised that there hasn't already been a thread for this so here it is
the official Marvel Cinematic Universe thread!
but just what IS the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Glad you asked, blue text! The Marvel Cinematic Universe (henceforth referred to as the MCU) is a series of films produced by Marvel Studios (itself owned by The Walt Disney Company) that serve as a cinematic equivalent to their sprawling comicbook universe.
The MCU consists of the following films, divided into three "Phases":

The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
The Avengers (2012)
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Holy Hollywood, Batman, that's a lot of content! I don't even want to do the maths on how long that would take to watch all of that...
so this here's the thread for all your Marvel discussion needs (you can talk about the comics too if you want)
PLEASE PUT ALL AND ANY INFINITY WAR SPOILERS IN SPOILER TAGS. THANK YOU.
Any advice or criticism I may give should be considered with the understanding that I lack skill and experience in pretty much everything.
