So, I’ve mentioned before that, in my spare time, I’ve been editing together a chronological supercut of all the MCU movies (not just pasting them together sloppily but as crafted as I can make it). Having watched Thor Ragnarok the other day, even before these last few films leading up to the 4th Avengers Movie, it is a stunning body of work and accomplishment.
For all the talk of the Marvel movies being the same formula over and over, the full narrative, when put together, is all over the shop. Interlinked, the films become more like Game Of Thrones, constantly building towards a massive showdown against an incredibly deadly and powerful enemy, each player evolving and growing through circumstance, slowly becoming the heroes needed when the time comes.
It’s just mindblowing how much they’ve achieved in ten years.
