The stakes have never been higher with the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War. Ten years in the making, it all culminates in this epic crossover of a film. All of our favorite heroes in one film save for Hawkeye and Ant-Man–neither of which were one the poster. With this large of a cast, it a was a question going into the film of how would they be able to handle the appearances of…"Avengers: Infinity War – The Road to Endgame"
Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s most fun film and raises the bar as Thor teams up with Hulk to save Asgard. It’s been 2.5 years since Thor (Chris Hemsworth) left to look for Odin at the end of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Meanwhile, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) was seen departing for who knows where following the attack on Sokovia. Thor: Ragnarok‘s awesome cold open featuring Thor and Surtur sets the tone of the film with both…"Thor: Ragnarok – The Road to Endgame"
Doctor Strange delivers a satisfying origin story for the Sorcerer Supreme while drawing upon the comic book visuals in an entertaining way. Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is certainly one of the world’s best neurosurgeons. Well, he was until he ended up in an awful car accident. His former girlfriend and fellow co-worker, Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams), tries her best to help him move forward. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as stubborn and won’t mind wiping…"Doctor Strange – The Road to Endgame"
After the darker Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and The Wasp brings some much-needed comedy to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Scott Lang was nowhere to be seen during Avengers: Infinity War because he was on house arrest. This came as a result of traveling to Germany during Captain America: Civil War. Both Hawkeye and Lang had taken deals with the government. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) have a stronger father-daughter relationship…"Ant-Man and The Wasp – The Road to Endgame"
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best incarnation of Spider-Man on the big screen as the web-slinger joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his first big screen adventure. Following his brief appearance in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) returns to the big screen for a new adventure. For years, there was talk of Larry David playing the Vulture if Sam Raimi had been allowed to make a fourth Spider-Man movie. I don’t know how…"Spider-Man: Homecoming: The Road to Endgame"
To put it in simple terms, Black Panther is one of the best Marvel films ever. The Black Panther character screamed for a movie iteration ever since he debuted in comic book form in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #52 (1966). Ryan Coogler, who broke out with the Sundance-winning Fruitvale Station in 2013, is onto a heck of a start to his filmmaking career with three critically acclaimed films. Not many filmmakers can have as successful of…"Black Panther: The Road to Endgame"
With Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel mini-series that had huge ramifications across the universe finally comes to the big screen. However, it’s not quite the same as the original comic book series given that Fox owns the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. That said, it’s still a really awesome film. Just as in the comics, Steve Rogers’ Captain America (Chris Evans) is pitted against Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Cap is…"Captain America: Civil War – The Road to Endgame"
Ant-Man largely succeeds as a Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 installment because of the ever-delightful Paul Rudd. By opening the film in 1989 with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) resigning from SHIELD in protest, Ant-Man declares its position within the MCU. Outraged by SHIELD’s attempt to replicate the Pym Particle, Pym declares they will never get his formula as long as he lives. The scene features an on-screen union between Howard Stark (John Slattery) and Peggy Carter…"Ant-Man – The Road to Endgame"
Avengers: Age of Ultron is the penultimate film of Marvel’s Phase 2 and paves the landscape for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is every bit as epic of an installment as the initial team-up in 2012. Since the collapse of S.H.I.E.LD., the Avengers have been busy at work in defeating H.Y.D.R.A. This time, they’re taking out Baron Wolfgang von Strucker’s (Thomas Kretschmann) base in Sokovia. It just so happens that this…"Avengers: Age of Ultron – The Road to Endgame"

For Peter Quill, he has never known who his father is. Lo…"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – The Road to Endgame"
