Spoiler Free Catch-up For Avengers Infinity War
It's finally here. A film that I've been hyping for years, and that I've been hoping for since I was a kid, is opening in theaters. Avengers Infinity War is what we've all been waiting for.
Going all the way back to when I was a kid, and I saw the terrible Captain America movie from 1990, I've always believed it would be amazing if someone could bring The Avengers to the big screen. Then when we got our first taste of Iron Man, my adult mind thought "we're one step closer".
One of my favorite comic book story arcs from my childhood was The Infinity Gauntlet, written by Jim Starlin and drawn by George Perez. I was a limited story, lasting 6 books, which was perfect for where I was in my comic development. At that age, I didn't understand some of the underlying themes, or get too in-depth with "greater meaning" panels...I was just amazed at how cool it was to have Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Doctor Strange, The Hulk, and everyone else all crammed into one story.
Now that my childhood is going to be on the big screen, I'm at an odd crossroads: I want to get as many people as I can out to see this movie, while also not spoiling anything, or having anything spoiled for me.
So I figure the best thing to do is string together all of the Post-credits scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Even if you've just seen a handful of these, you should be able to get a good feel for where things are heading just off these...
