Everyone is happy that Avengers: Infinity War reached the summit of 2 Billion dollars. That’s impressive, but I’m worry of what comes next. I mean, to fully enjoy the movie you had to see 18 previous movies! And that my friend, is a lot.
Are we going to experience in the MCU what we sadly must suffer on the comics? A reboot, #1 issue every leap year?
In the comics we have more than 50 years of history if we consider FF #1 as the dawn of modern comics or we can look further with Action Comics #1 in 1938. You can’t ask a new reader to read all that history baggage before jumping in a new comic of Superman or Batman or Spidey. It’s just too overwhelming, and that’s why we have every now and then a new #1. Is it going to happen the same with the MCU?
A 10-year-old kid, needs to see the previous 18 movies to understand Avengers: Infinity War? When are we going to drop the towel and stop going to the cinema because we haven’t see this or that superhero movie?
I’m not a huge fan of Ant-man. Do I really have to see Ant-man and the Wasp to understand Avengers 4? If a guy is not into Doctor Strange, is he going to choose seeing Doctor Strange to see Avengers: Infinity War or is going to not see the movie? I guess in the 2 Billion is the answer but times will come where you will have to see a lot of movies you don’t really want to see and that might cause the dusk of superhero movies.
