Super Hero Mania

I have only just discovered how much fun it is to watch the Super Hero movies! Crazy, right? They have been out for so long and everyone loves them and yet I’m only now getting around to them. But in a way it’s really fun because I can watch them one after the other, rather than waiting for the next one (or even wondering what it will be!)

It all began one night when my husband and I watched Spiderman, Homecoming. I’m not sure why we watched it, I think I had just heard that it was really good. And it was!!! It was such a fun movie. But the end was what really grabbed me. When I realized the ‘other’ characters were a part of something bigger than just that film. So I went in hot pursuit of where it all began.

My son brought over The Avengers. Loved it, awesome, the best!!! But not the beginning. Then a conversation at school with one of our PE teachers got me thinking there must be a list somewhere. She explained that each movie added a little to the whole picture, and that even movies that “weren’t very good” (her opinion) like Ant Man were important.

So I went in pursuit of a list and this is what I came up with:

Captain America: The First Avenger

Iron Man

The Incredible Hulk

Iron Man 2

Thor

The Avengers

Iron Man 3

Thor: The Dark World

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy; Vol 2

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Ant Man

Captain America: Civil War

Doctor Strange

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Thor: Ragnarok

Black Panther

And future movies!

Avengers: Infinity War

Ant Man and the Wasp

Captain Marvel

I’m only on Ant Man, we’ll see if my opinion varies from my colleagues. My husband and I are watching it tonight, as soon as I stop typing!

I have to move on to the DC movies next. If anyone out there has any other recommendations for this list or others please chime in! There’s nothing like a theme to keep interest hight, and insure there will always be a next!

  1. Not sure whether I should admit that I’m not usually a fan of these kinds of movies and probably haven’t seen any of these. However, for the past two weeks, all of my middle schoolers have been telling me that I HAVE to see BLACK PANTHER. Now I’m wondering whether I should watch some of the movies on your list first!

    1. Run out and see Black Panther! I haven’t finished the list but it sounds so good that I’m going to see it asap. It’s hard to get to the theater, that’s probably why I am only now catching up with all these awesome movies. And I love Ant-Man, even though it is not high on people’s list. I guess I am easily entertained, lol! Enjoy!

  2. I can say that I have probably not watched any of these movies … but I’m happy to hear that they have captured you! We just adopted a puppy in December and her entire litter was named after the DC Comics (which I didn’t know about): Wonder Woman, Katana, and Harley Quinn. We adopted Harley and the name stayed! Maybe I should check these out! Thanks for sharing!

    PS I left a reply on the TWT page, but your first link is correct: https://writintime.wordpress.com/2018/03/03/super-hero-mania/

    After I hit publish, I go to my blog and then click on the title of my newest post so it brings me to that specific post, then I copy the permalink. Hope that helps!

    1. Love the name of your puppy! One of my former students was Harley Quinn for Halloween a year or so ago and I had to look up who she was talking about! I do highly recommend the movies, they are all a fun watch. And thanks for double checking my posting, I get this little window after I publish that says ‘copy’ and that seems to work as well. It’s a little different every year!

  3. Your enthusiasm is contagious. My husband and I have started watching a few superhero movies also. Not a genre I thought I would like, but I really am enjoying them. I’ll have to save your list. Maybe it will help us watch.

    We just watched Wonder Woman last weekend. I really don’t know where this fits on your list. It might be a new list. But it was terrific. You should watch it!

    1. OMG, loved Wonder Woman! She is a DC comic rather than Marvel (see what an expert I have become!) So it’s: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Justice League. I started at WW and then saw Justice League, loved it as well. Now I have to back to the beginning. enjoy!!!

  4. This sounds so fun… and love that you and your husband are taking this super hero adventure together. I’ve been looking for something fun to watch and have been watching the series “The Flash” which I love and is just super fun. Thanks for the list!
