This Spring will see the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. The Third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the shared cinematic Universe. Once a week, leading up to the release of the film we’re going to dive into each of the Marvel films that led up to it. Today we’re starting things off with the first film in the MCU, Iron Man.
Netflix and Marvel have had a great track record in recent years with the TV shows based on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. As well as the Team-Up series, The Defenders. For the most part these shows have received praise from fans and critics alike for not only being solid material but truly realizing each of the titular characters. After the introduction of The Punisher in season 2 of Daredevil and the praise for Jon Berenthal’s performance as the gun toting vigilante, a TV series based on the character was greenlit. That show was released last weekend and may in fact be Marvel and Netflix’s best venture yet.
