Infinity War


I’m not the biggest Marvel Universe fan in the world. Not that I don’t like the films – I like them plenty. I’ve seen all of them at least once and many of them several times (more often than not as a “sod it, that’ll do” selection to end a tortuous Netflix browse). Even the worst of them aren’t ‘bad’ films by any stretch. At the very worst they’re ‘okay’ or ‘pretty good’, but at they’re best I think they’re pretty damn special.

I’ve got to say though that Marvel did a pretty spectacular job with Infinity Wars. Trying to manage that many characters in a story that has to by design be as epic as the build up required was a near impossible task. But they did it, and fair play. I was also pleased to see Marvel nailing yet another decent villain, following on the fine antagonist work seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther.

How many film series could get 19 in, and with that regular a release schedule, and still pump out gold?

I’d put Infinity War as Top 5’er, myself:

  1. Thor: Ragnarok
  2. Black Panther
  3. The Avengers
  4. Avengers: Infinity War
  5. Captain America: Civil War

(Probably would have had Captain America: The Winter Soldier in fifth prior to IW.)
