The Avengers (2012)

Everything has been leading to this. Six main characters introduced over 5 movies, all threads leading to the creation of the Avengers. But it's not as simple as them just deciding working together is a great idea. What do you think this is, 1963? So let's talk about the last film in Marvel's Phase One as MCU March continues!

WandaVision, Season 1: Episode 9

It's the penultimate episode of the series and we spent most of it through flashbacks. Not saying that's a bad thing--we definitely learned a lot--but really it just feels like it's teasing us, giving a few answers but raising even more questions in anticipation of the finale. So let's talk about all that we've learned!

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

With Captain America: The First Avenger, all 6 of the main Avengers have been introduced. Iron Man was introduced in Iron Man, Hulk in The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow in Iron Man 2, and both Thor and Hawkeye in Thor. All that's missing is the star-spangled man with a plan, leading us to this flashback movie. Welcome back to MCU March! Let's talk about the last movie leading up to The Avengers.

Thor (2011)

I gotta say, I absolutely love that MCU March lined up in such a perfect way that not only do the number of weekdays match the number of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also that the Thor post is going up on Thursday. Thor's Day? Get it?! Ah, we have fun here at Chwineka Watches... Anyway, let's talk about my favorite film of Marvel's Phase One.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

With Iron Man 2, the ball is rolling on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just like the ball that is MCU March! Gotta mention the event in ever post, no matter how awkward! Marvel Studios had achieved success with Mr. Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk did decently with a Tony Stark cameo linking the movies together. The road to the The Avengers continues in this movie by adding a new recurring character and giving a new face/actor to an existing one.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

MCU March continues with The Incredible Hulk, the reboot to the Hulk movie released 5 years earlier. Gotta say, it's pretty gutsy to make a reboot that soon after the previous version, but this was also before Sony rebooted Spider-Man twice in a 5 year period. Superhero movies are strange beasts. But anyway, let's begin!

Iron Man (2008)

MCU March has officially begun! Every weekday this month I'll be talking about a different film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hence the name. This is in addition to the upcoming last episode of WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier's premiere two weeks later, and maybe something else. Gonna be busy, but I'm a huge comic book nerd, so really I'm in my element. With that, let's talk about Iron Man!

Hulk (2003)

February is almost over, so now would be a good time to announce that March is going to be another event month! Every weekday I will be talking about a different movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it's MCU March! I'm kicking off this endeavor with a little prologue: 2003's Hulk movie, which is not actually a part of the MCU as it was produced by Universal Studios before Iron Man started the franchise rolling, and 2008's The Incredible Hulk is a reboot for the character. But it's an infamous Marvel movie I hadn't seen, so let's fix that!
